Re: “Fluoridation Altercation

EPA Professionals Union Oppose Fluoridation~Are they all full of nonsense too DDS Slott?

And by the way sir, you are a dentist. A dentist would have ABSOLUTELY NO AUTHORITY to say what is safe for any persons entire body systemically. Any MD or DDS ignorantly claiming fluoride is safe would be wise to take a few moments out of their very busy schedule each day to go get current on all the independent studies not funded by big industry available from around the globe. One would be wise to look at the higher incidence of arthritis and thyroid problems and other negative health impacts in fluoridated countries as compared to non fluoridated countries. Anyone who thinks it's safe to consume or direct people to consume a chemical everyday for the rest of their lives that has never been approved by the FDA for ingestion is living in the dark ages! Shame on those who lie to the people! Shame on those who attempt to discredit those who are telling the truth! Many are speaking the truth presently. The American People are waking up! We refuse to continue to be misinformed. Organizations like FAN led by Paul Connett PhD are making the truth known, truth that has been squashed for the love of money for decades! No matter how fluoride proponents try in vain to down play this, many are suffering. Why the few are so invested in protecting this policy is very hard to comprehend. For all fluoride proponents and their families are being effected as well, although possibly to a lesser degree since they may be able to afford fluoride free water to drink. Many in the general public can not.

And to the credibility of the fluoride meter measurements obtained for public review in this article and doubted by MLGW President Collins: My family and I did not invest in this fluoride meter as a toy to play with but rather a tool to utilize and protect ourselves and our community. Throughout my career, I have been no stranger to the use of calibrated analyzation instruments. I hold an applied science degree and have practiced as a Respiratory Therapist in and around this city for years. Part of my job has been to determine life support settings based on blood gas analysis. Don't think for one minute the importance of calibrating a piece of analyzation equipment before obtaining a measurement is not clearly understood. This particular fluoride meter will not operate properly without first being properly calibrated. The measurements of this fluoride meter are completely trust worthy since when rain or spring water are tested the fluoride level measures correctly at 0.2 or 0.3ppm. However, MLGW water fluoridated water in my community yesterday evening tested at 1.5ppm, still more than double over and above what MLGW states the are adding.

As to the claim by Dr Gordon stating that children's rate of tooth decay is declining. We would implore her to look at the World Health Organization data that states that this is in fact true, in BOTH fluoridated and NON fluoridated countries ALIKE. WHO data clearly suggests that ingested fluoride is NOT the cause for the decrease in tooth decay in the US, as ALL modern countries are experiencing the same decrease in rate of tooth decay whether they are fluoridated or not. They attribute this across the board decrease in tooth decay to better availability of dental care and better nutrition. Also, to Dr Gordon's comment that fluoridation is extremely beneficial, especially to children. We would argue and so would Harvard after analyzing 27 Chinese studies, that it is our children who are suffering the most. This suffering will last a life time and include loss of IQ. http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/news/features/… Also, it is very note worthy to mention, the World Health Organization also considers Asthma the most common chronic childhood disease, not cavities. http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/…

And if perhaps, none of this really seems to matter to the reader, try getting off of fluoride for a while since it is a known fact that fluoride causes apathy. See how much better you may feel after detoxing from fluoride. Personally, 2 weeks off fluoride, and my health improved dramatically. My energy increased and my clarity of thought became greatly improved! Although, even at a fairly young age, I experience pain daily from damage done to my bones. Many are suffering.

Another thing to consider is one of the side effects of fluoride as a drug is apathy. Interesting correlation to consider:70% of the US fluoridates and around 60% don't vote. We at Mid~South Fluoride Free Coalition call this the Apathy Factor. Fluoridation causing the Apathy Factor as well as all the other negative health impacts related to ingesting fluoride are contributing to the undermining of our nation.

Concerned citizens, it is very important to understand that only 1% of the water that comes into our homes and businesses is consumed. Sadly, Fluoridation is policy that has been put in place as means to quietly dispose of a toxic waste by product of big industry, specifically the metal smelting and phosphorus mining industries. Fluoride was always a health hazard for the local communities surrounding these industries. Wide scale community water fluoridation has been the solution to that environmental problem which in turn is creating more health and environmental problems. The policy of fluoridation is not a win for anyone but the industries selling the poison. They are making billions from selling this poison to our water companies across our nation!

Please join the Fluoride Action Network, sign the Petition and Professional's Statement to End Fluoridation. And visit the TN state Face Book group, Tennesseans Against Water Fluoridation today. Reach out to MSFFC at truthaboutfluoride@gmail.com
