Open the Floodgates of Truth — and shut-off the fluoride valve
The fluoridation of public drinking water supplies is purported to reduce cavities. Dental and public health officials are always saying caries (cavities) is a disease–which it is. Fluoride (F) then is a drug –by FDA definition. But fluoride is not FDA approved. More than a dozen federal agencies and dental advocacy and trade associations tout that fluoride is safe and effective. However, it is not safe or effective–as hundreds of independent studies have shown over the decades. Since it cannot be shown that F is safe for everyone the claim of its safety and effectiveness is a false claim—punishable under federal and state laws with civil and criminal penalties, including personal liabilities. The health damages affects blacks and Hispanics more than “white folks”, as Dr. Marcus puts it.
This one-hour film explains the politics (policy) of F water. The policy must be protected and detractors must be silenced and discredited. Recycling an industrial toxic waste saves billions of dollars and billions of dollars are spent in PR campaigns and in developing well-funded, sophisticated propaganda machinery like Healthy Kids Healthy Portland. It is was I call a Sacred Secret. Why? Because there is unlimited liabilities for those water suppliers, chemical companies, trade associations such as AMA, ADA and AAP, and state and federal agencies and their numerous “non-profits” and consultants who are recommending and requiring F. There are trillions in liabilities (more than asbestos and tobacco combined) because they should have known and many of them know that this long-term, unmonitored experiment has serious side effects for many. This legally puts them in the category of criminal activity and legal conspiracy. I can think of more than half-dozen federal environmental statutes and regulations, including international codes and codes of ethics that are being violated by adding F chemicals to drinking water. Should this become better known in the general public, and this is increasing rapidly, or if a case against F wins in a federal or state court (as it has in many city councils), the entire public trust in the government health programs will disintegrate even more-so– including their most sacred vaccination programs.
I can identify with Dr. William Marcus, former chief toxicologist for EPA. I can identify with the 1800 other EPA scientists who have wanted it banned for over 20 years. I know how I was treated at the local health department (where I worked until recently) after I suggested (and then insisted), as my sworn code of profession ethics policy and internal ethics policy dictated, that official warnings be published locally to mothers of infants and pregnant women of the hazards of F –as CDC and ADA has warned. Even though all of the hard-copy and links were given for the CDC and ADA warnings and independent studies, all of a sudden my 40-year career in environmental, health and safety and professional licensure made me unqualified to recommend a warning because “fluoridation is in the top ten greatest public health achievements in the 20th century”.
The first signs of fluoride overdose is spots on the teeth–some white spots and some brown and pitted–called fluorosis. In 2011, CDC reported this affects 42 percent of all teenagers and 4% of all teenagers have moderate to serious cases. This is up from 30% in 2000 and from 20% in 1990. I believe, unless those that are pro-choice on fluoridation better organize, fluoride overdose will be visible in 100% of children. Will public health authorities and their corporate partners and consultants do nothing then too?
What can you do to help in your community? See the Fluoride-free Campaign home page to get the flyers you need and help promote this education and outreach effort. It’s in English, Spanish and French.
The film shows the most recent documentation of the water FluorideGate leaks. You should at least watch the first five minutes. You will see a 5th grader explain their class project over several months where they researched fluoride and determined it was hazardous to health. She and her entire class even conducted experiments and made posters and buttons. You will also want to hear a 5-minute video of Dr. Yolonda Whyte, a pediatrician explaining why she no longer supports the F policy.
