I always find it rather amazing that those with the least experence think they know the issue. Those that do read all the peer reviewed research
find serious problems.
Most people that really have studied the fluoride topic and look at the bone and other organ retention and build up of fluoride concentrations with
age find something rather logical, you don't live beyond a certain limit of fluoride concentration in the bone.
Fluoride reportedly does the following:
inactivates 62 enzymes (Judd)
increases the aging process (Yiamouyiannis)
increases the incidence of cancer and tumor growth (Waldbott/Yiamouyiannis)
disrupts the immune system (Waldbott)
causes genetic damage (Tsutsui, et al)
interrupts DNA repair-enzyme activity (Waldbott)
THE FLUORIDE CONTROVERSY
Fluoride is a very controversial topic because fluoride is a known toxin. In the National Medical Library, over 40 articles can be found on the
toxicity of fluoride. Half of the articles said fluoride promotes cancer (mutagenic). It should be noted that Proctor and Gamble paid for some of the
"negative-concluding" research. The toxicity of fluoride has caused many countries to rethink allowing fluoride to be added to water. Those banning
fluoride are Sweden, Norway, Denmark, West Germany, Italy, Belgium, Austria, France, and The Netherlands. Despite these retractions of fluoride, the
US still presses on with the goal to fluoridate (poison) every community water supply in the United States. However, many cities in the United States
(including Santa Barbara, Escondido, Santa Cruz) have stopped adding fluoride to the water supplies based on the concern about fluoride's toxicity.
All dentists are very familiar with the American Dental Association (ADA) and other "authoritative" positions on fluoride. These groups rarely mention
its toxic potential or the few studies revealing increased tooth decay after fluoride use. You may wonder why the ADA and other public "health"
agencies continue to recommend fluoride. This is the biggest error found in studies using large populations of people. What happens is that the study
shows a benefit compared to plain water. What does that mean? It simply means that some people had fewer cavities than those who did not have
fluoride. Did every person benefit? No. Will you benefit? Maybe. But is having 1 cavity less than you might have had worth the risk? This is the
The research of Burk and Yiamouyiannis revealed that every major city with fluoride had increased rates of cancer. If you don't want to look at this
data, that is your decision.
Fluoride impairs the production of free radical scavengers such as glutathione. Fluoride impairs the function of enzymes that prevent lipid
peroxidation. These enzymes include glutathione peroxidase, superoxide dismutase and catalase.
Those who know a little about the workings of the enzyme systems recognize glutathione, GSH, as the principle mechanism for removing toxic metal build
up from the body via the liver pathway. Fluoridation harms the ability of the body to clear out toxic metals like mercury. The rise of mercury
retention causes rates of oxidative stress to rise.
It doesn't stop there as it also impairs the production of the enzyme super oxided dismutase, SOD, which is the prime oxidation stress repair
mechanism in the cells.
Fluoride intake in the body does what is called potentiation of toxic metal problems in the human body, making them worse due to the enzyme damage
factors from fluoride intake into the body.
So, what one notices is that the Dentists love to use mercury fillings that leach mercury into the body, and they also tell you that internalization
of fluoride is good for the teeth without ever mentioning to anyone that fluoride builds up in the human body over time, causaing all manner of
problems, and along with that comes impairment of the body to remove toxic metals like mercury used in dentistry. Studies that only study teeth,
don't report the full spectrum issues.
Such things are nothing new, as the tobacco companies lied for decades on the dangers of smoking and the addictions of nicotine. Tobacco Companies
like Reynolds had a number of persons acting to hide and downplay the dangers. For tobacco look up Gerhart Cohen, Fluoride has the some type of
organizations as the tobacco companies to cover up the dangers for the profit margine of industry.
