The Fluoride Deception

The Fluoride Deception by Christopher Bryson examines the background of the water fluoridation debate. Once hailed as a harmless chemical that would prevent tooth decay, new evidence shows how water fluoridation could be linked to serious health problems. 
The Fluoride Deception
Proponents in the US, at the end of the second World War, argued that fluoride in our water and toothpaste would help to protect teeth and prevent decay. Over the following decades, fluoride was added to public water supplies across the country.

The benefits of water fluoridation have been held to be unquestionable for many years. But more and more accumulating evidence points to a frightening prospect: that fluoride may have serious adverse health effects, including infant mortality, congenital defects and IQ.

How Did Fluoride Invade our Water?

Most communities in America have added fluoride to their water for so long we hardly think about it any more. In fact 184 million Americans or about 70 percent of the total population have fluoride added to there water, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

But, only about 2% of Europeans drink fluoridated water.  Countries like France, Japan, Italy, Belgium Scotland, the Scandinavian countries, and others have never added fluoride, or else stopped when they found out how harmful it was.

Up through the early 1930s, both the American Dental Association (ADA) and the US Public Health Service agreed that ingestion of fluoride in drinking water and food conveys no benefit.In fact, heir research showed that fluoride could cause dental problems and damage the central nervous system. 

Then in 1931, Andrew Mellon, founder of the Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA}, convinced the US Public Health Service that adding fluoride to drinking water would prevent tooth decay. With two ALCOA funded studies showing the safety of fluoride he was able to overrode thousands of scientific papers showing its negative affects. Without further testing, fluoride was added to public drinking water. 

In 1977 Congress discovered, despite a quarter-century of endorsing water fluoridation, that no federal health officials had never thought to cancer-tested fluoride. Later tests proved fluoride to be a carcinogen, causing liver and bone cancer, but also responsible for symptoms resembling Alzheimer’s disease and attention deficit disorder. Although the EPA has failed to regulate fluoride as a carcinogen.

Toxicologist William Marcus says:

"Fluoride is a carcinogen by any standard we use. I believe EPA should act immediately to protect the public, not just on the cancer data, but on the evidence of bone fractures, arthritis, mutagenicity, and other effects."

How does this Fluoride Deception Harm Your  Body?

Fluoride from the water we drink, the air we breath, and food we ingest accumulates in our body over our lifetime. It damages our bones, immune, musculoskeletal, respiratory, circulatory and digestive systems and effect thyroid, liver, and brain function. Collecting in fat cells, fluoride attacks and destroys essential protein enzymes as well.

Studies have also shown the following:

  • Fluoride concentration of 1 part per million (PPM) increases tumor growth by 25% 
  • Fluoride is more poisonous than lead, slightly less poisonous than  arsenic       fluoride vs laed
  • Seven ounces of toothpaste contain enough fluoride to kill a small child 
  • Fluoride supplements are unsafe for children under three years old 
  • Fluorides cause premature aging of the human body
  • The kidneys excrete only approximately 50% of the daily fluoride intake
  • Excessive ingestion of fluoride during the early childhood can cause  dental fluorosis
