An Inconvenient Tooth is a documentary film about fluoride. It was released September 6th, 2012 at the city hall in Portland, Oregon. Fluoride does horrible damage to human bones, thyroids, the pineal gland, and many other areas of the body, yet big industry, the medical establishment, and those in government continue to promote its use in tap water and in tooth paste and dental treatments.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring substance found in the earth. It is therefore, naturally present in the water we drink and in the dust we breathe.
Groundbreaking new research has linked sodium fluoride to cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide. Researchers found that fluoride consumption directly stimulates the hardening of your arteries, a condition known as atherosclerosis that is highly correlated with the #1 killer. Sodium fluoride is currently added to the water supply of many cities worldwide, despite extreme opposition from health professionals and previous studies linking it to decreased IQ and infertility. In their research, scientists examined the relationship between fluoride intake and the hardening (calcification) of the arteries. Studying more than 60 patients, the researchers found a significant correlation between fluoride consumption and the calcification of your arteries. Published in the January edition of the journal Nuclear Medicine Communications, the research highlights the fact that mass fluoride exposure may be to blame for the cardiovascular disease epidemic that takes more lives each year than cancer. In 2008, cardiovascular killed 17 million people.
You called it right Corruption Exposed - I didn't bother to watch the video.
Doing tobacco control research for the last 10 years has taught me a lot!
Calcium floride occurrs naturally in earth but sodium fluoride is the stuff that is naturally in water supplies. The first is a solid, the second is in a dissolved form. BOTH OCCUR NATURALLY
Occurrence The mineral fluorite, a common mineral and chief source of fluoride for commercial applications. Solutions of inorganic fluorides in water contain F− and bifluoride HF2−. Few inorganic fluorides are soluble in water without undergoing significant hydrolysis. In terms of its reactivity, fluoride differs significantly from chloride and other halides, and is more strongly solvated due to its smaller radius/charge ratio. Its closest chemical relative is hydroxide. When relatively unsolvated, fluoride anions are called "naked". Naked fluoride is a very strong lewis base. The presence of fluoride and its compounds can be detected by 19F NMR spectroscopy. Natural occurrence Many fluoride minerals are known, but of paramount commercial importance are fluorite and fluorapatite. Fluoride is usually found naturally in low concentration in drinking water and foods. The concentration in seawater averages 1.3 parts per million (ppm). Fresh water supplies generally contain between 0.01–0.3 ppm, whereas the ocean contains between 1.2 and 1.5 ppm. In some locations, the fresh water contains dangerously high levels of fluoride, leading to serious health problems.
Because of the difficulty in making elemental fluorine, most fluorine used in commerce is never converted to free fluorine.Instead, hydrofluoric acid is the key intermediate for the $16 billion per year global fluorochemical industry. The fluorides of low charged metals are ionic compounds (salts); those of high charged metals are volatile molecular compounds. The largest uses of inorganic fluorides are steel making and aluminum refining.
A few halocarbons are produced in massive amounts by microorganisms. For example, several million tons of methyl bromide are estimated to be produced by marine organisms annually. Most of the halocarbons encountered in everyday life - solvents, medicines, plastics are man-made. The synthesis of halocarbons in the early 1800s but accelerated when their useful properties as solvents and anesthetics were discovered. The development of plastics and synthetic elastomers led to greatly expanded scale of production.A substantial percentage of drugs are halocarbons
Common uses for halocarbons have been as solvents, pesticides, refrigerants, fire-resistant oils, ingredients of elastomers, adhesives and sealants, electrically insulating coatings, plasticizers, and plastics. Many halocarbons have specialized uses in industry. One halocarbon, sucralose, is a sweetener.
Halocarbons, including those that might not be hazards in themselves, can present waste disposal issues. Because they do not readily degrade in natural environments, halocarbons tend to accumulate. Incineration and accidental fires can create corrosive byproducts like hydrochloric acid and hydrofluoric acid and poisons like halogenated dioxins and furans.

Do the search deniers,, NAZI used it to make em docile
Special Remarks on Chronic Effects on Humans:
May affect genetic material (mutagenic). May cause adverse reproductive effects and birth defects (teratogenic) based on animal test data.
Special Remarks on other Toxic Effects on Humans:
Acute Potential Health Effects: Skin: May cause skin irritation. Eyes: May cause eye irritation. Inhalation: Causes respiratory tract irritation. Ingestion: May cause gastrointestinal irritaiton with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, salivation, thirst, abdominal pain, fever, labored breathing (respiratory depression, apnea, dyspnea). Exposure to fluorides may also cause disturbed color vision, hypocalcemia, hyperkalemia, and hypomagnesemia, and may result in systemic toxic effects on the heart/cardiovascular system (hypotension, tachycardia, arrhythmia, weak pulse, cardiovascular collapse), liver (hepatic enzymes increased), and kidneys (abnormal renal function, renal damage). It may also affect behavior/Central Nervous System (CNS depression - headache, dizziness, weakness, somnolence, ataxia, loss of conciousness). Other neurological symptoms of acute fluoride ingestion may include muscle weakness, difficulty speaking, fitfulness(hyperreflexia), tetany, numbness or tingling of the extremities. Chronic Potential Health Effects: Skin: Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis.
Inhalation: Prolonged or repeated inhalation may cause bronchitis, asmtha, silicosis, increase in respiratory infections, pulmonary lesions. Ingestion: Prolonged or repeated ingestion cause diseases of the blood, teeth, bones and other organs (osteosclerosis, fluorosis). (Fluorisis is characterized by vomiting, diarrhea or constipation, weakness joint stiffness, loss of appetite, anemia).
The study is about using the fact that the fluoride used in medical imaging can present a diagnostic tool for increased cardiovascular risk. This is in addition to it being very useful in the detection of bone cancer.
The feasibility of a fluoride positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scan for imaging atherosclerosis has not been well documented. The purpose of this study was to assess fluoride uptake of vascular calcification in various major arteries, including coronary arteries.
Naturally occuring CaF2 (Calcium Fluoride) can also be toxic, but they are not adding it to our water system and water sources high in CaF2 are avoided or treated for that and other excessive minerals.
Sodium fluoride is not more toxic but both are toxic at high concentration levels.
NaF (Sodium Fluoride) is much more toxic, and is not naturally occuring, and has been proven to be toxic yet they still add it in our water and food supply.
There is no "toxicology report" but there is a warning. The reason is because if a child eats a lot of yummy toothpaste they could receive a toxic dose.
Phage you are a senior member so I am sure you have seen the mention of "why is there a toxicology report on toothpaste that says to call the emergency if you ingest it?" question.
Based on the amount possibly ingested and the development of any symptoms, the center will give you advice on whether you can safely stay home or go to the ER with your child.
If you can be watched at home, they will most likely recommend that you give your child some milk.
it does have a cumulative effect that I'm very confident you are also aware of.
Sodium fluoride is no more toxic than calcium fluoride and people have been ingesting it since long before fluoridation started. In fact, it was the correlation between low tooth decay and high fluoride levels which led to the use of fluoridation.
Sodium fluoride is bad and for you to try and compare it to Calcium fluoride to try and sway the discussion is somewhat comedic
