Fluoridation and Reverse Osmosis

19 Jan

For those who are educated on the harmful effects of fluoridation would be horrified to know there will be an increase of fluoridation amount pumped into our drinking water.

For 65 years, community water fluoridation has been a safe and healthy way to effectively prevent tooth decay. CDC has recognized water fluoridation as one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century.<<<<<<<< Wow. The power of propaganda – taking something so harmful and making it look like gold!

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is proposing a change to the recommendation for the optimal fluoride level in drinking water to prevent tooth decay. The new recommendation, 0.7 milligrams of fluoride per liter of water, replaces the previous recommended range of 0.7 to 1.2 milligrams per liter. There are several reasons for this change, including that Americans have access to more sources of fluoride than they did when water fluoridation was first introduced in the United States. The new guidance will update and replace original recommendations provided in 1962 by the U.S. Public Health Service.

Harmful Effects:

“In summary, we hold that fluoridation is an unreasonable risk.”
US ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY HEADQUARTERS’ UNION, 2001.

  • Fluoride’s ability to damage the brain represents one of the most active areas of research on fluoride toxicity today.
  • Fluoride has been found to cause bone cancer (osteosarcoma) in government animal studies and rates of osteosarcoma among young males living in fluoridated areas have been found to be higher than young males living in unfluoridated areas. Osteosarcoma, while rare, is a very serious cancer. Children who develop osteosarcoma face a high probability of death (usually within 3 years) or amputation.

  • In the 1990s, it was discovered that the pineal gland is a major site of fluoride accumulation within the body – with higher concentrations of fluoride than either teeth or bone. According to the US National Research Council, “any agent that affects pineal function could affect human health in a variety of ways, including effects on sexual maturation, calcium metabolism, parathyroid function, postmenopausal osteoporosis, cancer, and psychiatric disease.”
  • The kidneys play a vital role in preventing the build-up of excessive fluoride in the body. Among healthy individuals, the kidneys excrete approximately 50% of the daily fluoride intake. However, among individuals with kidney disease, the kidneys’ ability to excrete becomes markedly impaired, resulting in a build-up of fluoride within the body.
