Fluoride Is A Toxic Waste Byproduct

Since the 1940's, fluoride has been used in toothpaste and is added to most municipal drinking water in the US. The dental profession claims that fluoride is safe and necessary for good dental health.

Fact #1 from this video: Most developed countries do NOT fluoridate their water. In Western Europe, 97% of the water is not fluoridated.

Fluoride is actually toxic waste from the aluminum, phosphoric acid and phosphate fertilizer industries. Millions of tons of fluoride are produced each year.

Many 'scientific' studies were presented to convince the public that fluoride was safe. Lucrative positions were created for 'research' and 'education' with the express purpose of promoting the use of fluoride in toothpaste and in drinking water.

Fact # 2. Countries that fluoridate their water do not have a lower instance of tooth decay.

Fact # 3. Fluoride is an endocrine disruptor and affects the bones, the brain, the thyroid, and blood sugar levels.

Independent studies have shown it is responsible for disorders of the teeth, bones, the brain, thyroid gland, lowered IQ and more.

Today, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), over 60 percent of Americans are receiving fluoride in their drinking water whether they want it or not.

It is a controversy well worth exploring for yourself. If you determine that you need to, there are methods of reducing the fluoride levels, such as reverse osmosis water filters.

This excellent summary comes to us from the Fluoride Action Network, an organization dedicated to broadening awareness about the toxicity of fluoride compounds among citizens, scientists, and policymakers alike.
