Fluoride - Toxic Waste
The Dangers of Sodium Fluoride
Sodium Fluoride (See www.fluoridealert.org)
All of the research about fluoride for decay-prevention was actually
from calcium fluoride, not sodium fluoride.
Depending on the mineral content of the water source calcium fluoride
can form when there is an adequate amount of calcium present,
and may be of some benefit. It is interesting to note that research
shows that fluoride, whether calcium or sodium, is one of the
major aging factors.
- Toxic Waste
The form of fluoride put into the drinking water and used by dentists
is sodium fluoride, a toxic poison from the aluminum
and fertilizer industries and was used primarily as a rat poison
before city municipalities were duped into thinking it was necessary
to add to water supplies to fight tooth decay. By having city
municipalities buy their leftover sodium fluoride to put into
their water supplies the aluminum and fertilizer industries not
only do not have to pay to legally dispose of this toxic waste
but they also make money, especially since the price to purchase
it went up over 1,000%.
Banned and Not Used In Other Countries
Researchers in Europe who studied the effects of sodium fluoride
on humans found that it was not safe for consumption resulting
in its ban and illegal use in Denmark, Holland, Sweden, Belgium
and Germany. However, countries such as France and Norway never
used sodium fluoride because they never found a sound scientific
reason to use it.
Effects of Sodium Fluoride
In his book titled, “Fluoride, The Aging Factor”
written by Dr. John Yiamouyianni there is hard scientific information
he provides about the damaging effects of sodium fluoride.

disorders - such as lupus, sclera derma, rheumatoid arthritis
and other forms of arthritis.
and other degenerative conditions
|Skeletal fluorosis -
A condition where there is too much fluoride in the bone.
- 1st Stage - Symptoms can include pain in the bones
and joints, burning, pricking, and tingling in the limbs, muscle
weakness, chronic fatigue, reduced appetite and disorders of the
digestive system. During this stage x-rays can detect that the
bone has a more prominent and blurred structure and that there
are changes in the pelvis and spinal column.
Skeletal fluorosis - 2nd Stage - If left unchanged
the condition can worsen to where there is constant pain in the
bones and some of the ligaments start to calcify. The long bones,
such as in the legs, may become osteoporotic, or lose bone tissue,
and osteosclerosis ( this is when the bones become more dense
and develop an abnormal crystalline structure that can more easily
fracture and break) may be present. Bone spurs may begin to appear
around the arm and leg bones especially around the knee, elbow,
and on the surface of the tibia and ulna.
In 3rd Stage
of Skeletal fluorosis, or extreme skeletal fluorosis,
also referred to as crippling skeletal fluorosis, the arms and
legs become weak and movement is difficult, while the vertebrae
become fused together, crippling the individual.
The thyroid gland is involved with many functions of
the body such as temperature control, basal metabolic rate (oxygen
consumption), carbohydrate/fat/protein metabolism, nervous system
function, cardiovascular system (normal functioning of the heart),
muscular system, skeletal system (promotes normal growth and maturation
of the skeleton for developing children and in adults assists
in the demineralization of the skeleton), gastrointestinal system
(promotes healthy bowel tone, GI motility or movement, and digestive
enzymes), reproductive system (promotes normal female reproductive
ability and lactation), and promotes normal hydration and secretory
activity of the skin.
One can see that if the thyroid is disrupted it can be difficult
to maintain a healthy body weight and can explain one reason why
so many people are gaining abnormal weight, especially fat, and
having a difficult time in losing it. Many also feel that the
sodium fluoride is contributing to the abnormal height of some
people and to broad bottoms.
is A Poison
In his book “Fluoride, The Aging Factor”
Dr. John Yiamouyiannis warns "Fluoride is a poison!"
“The 1984 issue of Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products
lists fluoride as more poisonous than lead and just slightly less
poisonous than arsenic. It has been used as a pesticide for mice,
rats and other small pests. A 10-pound infant could be killed
by 1/100 of an ounce and a 100-pound adult could be killed by
1/10 of an ounce of fluoride. The Akron Regional Poison Center
indicates that a 7-ounce tube of toothpaste contains 199 mg. of
fluoride, more than enough to kill a 25-pound child."
Dr. John Yiamouyiannis
also says in his book, "Fluoride interacts with the bonds
which maintain the normal shape of proteins. With distorted protein,
the immune system attacks it's own protein, the body's own tissue."
The visual and physical
effects from prolonged exposure to fluoride include nausea, bloody
vomit, faintness, stomach cramps, tremors, constipation, aching
bones, stiffness, skin rash, weight loss and brown or black discoloration
of the teeth.
It is healthier, more efficient, and safer to get our fluorine
from foods rather than taking inorganic and chemically produced
fluorides. Obtaining organic fluorine from foods along with organic
calcium form foods and in combination with high quality calcium
and other minerals such as magnesium and zinc in supplements will
assist the body in building a strong healthy surface on the teeth
and bones. Also, the natural fluorine protects the body from germs
Good sources of natural fluorine include foods such as avocado,
garlic, goat milk, goat cheese, and goat butter, greens, parsley,
brown rice, spinach, tomatoes, dates, cauliflower, cabbage, organic
egg yolks, cod liver oil, brussels sprouts, and black eye peas.
It is best to eat organically grown foods as much as possible.
of Sodium Fluoride for Good Health
Obviously if we want to have healthy bones and joints, as well
as good overall health, we have to eliminate sodium fluoride from
our drinking water. And while natural fluorine in foods is easily
removed as it evaporates during cooking, water containing sodium
fluoride does not. That being the case we should not cook with
water containing sodium fluoride in addition to not drinking it.
If you plan on using a filter for your water, or are presently
using one, make sure from the manufacturer that it does remove
