Natural or synthetic Fluoride that is the question
Do you know what is in your drinking water?
What would you say to mass medication without your consent, and what will you do, now knowing about it? I bet you would be upset and even indignant. This is not a situation seen in a science fiction film. This is happening now and you do not know about it.
I am talking about fluoride in your drinking water. At least two-thirds of the U.S. population has systematically had their drinking water modified by the introduction of synthetic fluoride (classified as a neurotoxin.) Why is this happening and why do we accept this?
Let me tell you a bit about fluoride
It is the 13th-most abundant element in the earth’s crust. It is present everywhere in nature, mostly as fluorides. It is found in low concentration in most fresh and saltwater sources and is thought to also be present in rainwater.
There are regions in the world where a high level of fluoride is found. In Tanzania, the drinking water has a dangerously high level of fluoride and this causes significant health problems. It can cause gastrointestinal problems, and with higher doses, it can interfere with bone formation.
In certain areas of the world such as China, Uzbekistan, and Ethiopia, the population suffers from an overdose of fluoride, which can cause bone deformities in children. Their well-water has levels of fluoride that are too high because it is present in the local granite rock formations. In India, about 60 million have been poisoned by drinking fluoride contaminated water.
The eruption of Laki
Vulcanos can cause havoc, and a good example is Laki in Iceland. Laki is a volcanic fissure in the country’s south. In June 1783, the system erupted. This event lasted 8 months, during which a tremendous amount (estimated at 42 billion tons) of basalt lava and clouds of poisonous hydrofluoric acid and sulfur dioxide compounds were set free.
This contaminated the soil, killing about 50% of livestock and ruining most of the crops. As a result, the people had nothing to eat and 25% of the population died. As 120 million tons of sulfur dioxides entered the Northern Hemisphere, it caused the temperatures to drop in downwind countries, which harmed crops in many European countries as well as droughts in North Africa and India. Amazing and sad what one big nature event can cause.
Even if nature can have tremendous hiccups, which cause destruction and death, if we do not interfere and try to keep a harmonious balance, nature will be on our side.
The difference between the U.S and Western Europe
The CDC Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that at least two-thirds of the U.S. population is having fluoride added to their water. In Western Europe, 97% of people do not consume fluoridated water. Why is there such a difference?
In the 1950s, they introduced the idea of adding fluoride to the drinking water from the U.S. to Europe. At that time my father was the director of a private water company that delivered drinking water to 7 cities. In the hills of Utrecht, they pumped water up from a depth of 300 meters and directed through a big pipeline to the filtering tower of Veenendaal.
From the top of the tower, it would filter through various sand beds to come out clean at the bottom. From there, they would lead it to the distribution center.
When my father heard that the state-managed water companies in Holland were going to put fluoride in the drinking water, he said no way. If people want to have fluoride, they can buy toothpaste with fluoride in it. It turns out that he was right.
Children do not have better teeth nowadays
Today, over 60 years later, there are still no studies which prove that fluoride helps against tooth decay. It is rather the contrary that has been shown. There is a tooth condition called dental fluorosis, which affects 41% of American children between 12 to 15 years old. You can see it as it produces tiny white streaks and specks in tooth enamel. In more severe cases, it advances as tooth decay and damage.
The list of the negative effects of having too much fluoride in the system is long. If you want to use fluoridated toothpaste, you should remember to not ingest it. It is one thing to brush your teeth 3 times a day, not swallowing the paste, but another thing entirely to drink water with added fluoride daily. The effects are inside your body. Let us not forget an important point.
There is no such thing as fluoride deficiency. It causes tooth decay by too much, not too little.
A must have book
There was little evidence of its safety when in 1950 the U.S. Public Health Service endorsed water fluoridation. Now, six decades later, new scientific evidence shows links between fluoride and brain damage, bones, and endocrine system. And there still is no evidence that fluoride reduces tooth decay.
The FDA and the EPA do not seem to care and even less control that we drink fluoride every day. Come to think of it, it is not even pharmaceutical grade. It is the hazardous waste product of the phosphate fertilizer industry.
The health of your future baby
When a fetus is exposed to fluoride, there is a heightened risk of cognitive impairment. These children have a lower IQ, they might suffer Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) and various other neurodevelopmental problems.
Older people become more susceptible to fluoride side effects since they are often deficient in calcium, magnesium, and vitamin C. People with kidney and heart problems should take care because too much fluoride can damage your bones. We know this condition as skeletal fluorosis. The bones become thick and hard, losing their flexibility. That again increases the risks of fractures, joint dysfunction, and will affect your mobility.
Some people do not sleep well, and this can be due to excessive fluoride in your body. When the body does not get the necessary rest, other conditions, from obesity, heart disease to cancer and dementia can manifest themselves. Some other really unpleasant things on the list include early female puberty, infertility, thyroid dysfunction, high blood pressure, heart failure, bone cancer, and the list goes on.
You should be informed about what water you drink. In case you have fluoride added to your drinking water, it is a good idea to take measures for your health and that of your family. Buy a high-quality water filtration system for your house. Luckily, there are already many fluoride-free kinds of toothpaste on the market.

The following post is about Botox. Probably not such a good idea to put that into your body. Have a look.
