Written By: Boston Paul

Greetings and salutations. Welcome to Stealth Health: your manual for preventive medicine and guide on how to stay healthy, live well, and take control of your own body.  This S.H. report will clue you in to the dangers of fluoride. What is fluoride and why is it in EVERYTHING?

Be sure to investigate yourself, this is creepy stuff.


I have written about Corpus Alimentarius in the past (I will get it up on this blog soon) and how  Korporation & the U.S. Government would have total control over what goes into your body (bye-bye vitamins without a prescription). So one might think, I’ll grow my own herbs and plants and get my vitamins that way! Better do it quick and make sure you are not using genetically modified seeds. Look into GMOs yourself, and in the coming months, expect an essay in S.H. about how these dastardly little evil-doers are knocking our ecosystem off balance.

S.H. Welcomes your comments, submissions and inquiries. Please send them to

I have broken my somewhat lengthy laborious lecture down to 8 parts:

1. Introduction

Fluoride. There is much controversy surrounding the fluoride issue.  Both the pro-fluoride camp and anti-fluoride camp both vehemently defend and attack the use of fluoride on human beings. Years of research has convinced me that fluoride is not all it’s cut out to be. Studies reveal no significant differences in teeth between fluoride users and non-fluoride users. In fact, the negative aspects of fluoride out-weigh the positive (though the ‘positive’ effects are still open to heated debate). A few questions must be asked:  First, why does the government (and by default; the masses) allow fluoride to be put in their water anyway? Think about it. Why does the government – our benevolent leaders – feel it urgent to taint our water with a dangerous chemical to protect of all things on our bodies our teeth? Second, why does the government adamantly endorse the fluoridation of the water… is there a hidden agenda? Why not fill our water reserves with nutrients that enhance our intelligence? Or put Vitamin C in our water supply? Vitamin C has been proven to enhance health by supplying us with antioxidants.  Vitamin C is also instrumental in preventing diseases such as scurvy.

If fluoride is indeed ‘good’ for our teeth, then why can’t they just let the fluoride in toothpaste do its work? And perhaps the real concern is that if they can pipe a toxic chemical like fluoride into our water pipes, what is preventing them (or any hostile agent) from putting other things into our water supply? Who gives them the right anyway? My teeth are my own concern thank you very much. Brush your teeth and floss and stay away from junk food (not just for your teeth, but your overall well-being) and your teeth will be fine.

I have asked these questions and I have searched for answers and now they are here for you. Are you ready to hear about one of the biggest scams in history? We all believe that fluoride is added to the water supply, toothpastes, mouthwashes and bottled drinking water to help prevent tooth decay. Most of us believe that it is good for us. What I will show in this article is that the masses are being deceived and slowly poisoned and that the environment is suffering too. I will include a list of bottled water containing fluoride in Part 2.

Please take the time to read the references at the end and do a bit of research for yourself. As always I would love to get your feed back and any ideas you may have.

I remember going back to the States a few years ago and staying at my sister’s house. I was making dinner for everyone and asked if it was ok to use water from the tap. My sister said “of course… and it has fluoride in it too!” like that was a good thing. I almost fell over… but that is the general feeling in the States; that fluoride is good for you. Remember the old cigarette adverts and commercials? Tobacco was supposed to be good for you too. There were studies to ‘prove it’ and those anti-tobacco proponents were persecuted much the same way the anti-fluoride camp is now.

I have visited many pro-fluoride sites and they all report that fluoride is safe and good (1part per million [1ppm]) for you because the [government] scientists say that it is. They report that those who suspect conspiracy are wrong and that fluoride – and they stress this – in ‘small amounts’ is good for you. The studies that many of these sites quote are in fact Korporate sponsored government studies and quite often there are conflicts of interest with many of the these ‘researchers’ (i.e. some of these scientists have investments in the Korporation, are being funded by the Korporation or they are holding other posts in governmental agencies etc).

Numerous independent studies – and some government studies – that do not adhere to the status-quo when ready to make their findings public, are hard-pressed to find a journal that will publish them because of the possible backlash from big Korporations (that actually run the government). These Korporations not only profit from the sale of this poison but, conveniently, they also do not have to pay hundreds of millions of their dollars to eliminate or store this toxic waste. What a deal!

Neutral researchers such as John Yiamouyiannis, Dr. John Colquhoun and Phyllis Mullenix have all concluded that fluoride is dangerous to the human body. These superb scientists have lost funding and in some cases have been forced to resign from their projects because their studies do not kowtow to the status-quo. Ms. Mullenix began her research thinking that fluoride was an essential part of dental care, but when she saw what fluoride was doing to her rats; she researched further and subsequently dug up buried unfavorable stats, cover-ups, Korporate funding for research, ETC.  She published her findings in Neurotoxicology and Teratology (Vol. 17, No. 2 pp. 169 – 177. 1995). Her work, with other brave scientists, has shown that the fluoride ion is particularly damaging to the brain’s hippocampal region, which is the learning center. See Neurotoxicity of Fluoride below.

2. What is Fluoride and What is It Used for?

We all love those buttery potatoes or savory fish wrapped in aluminum baking slowly on the BBQ. Aluminum is one of the most abundant metals in the earth’s crust. We only started using it in the late 19th century because it is a pain in the neck to mine and refine. In 1886, a method was discovered to economically refine aluminum. Bauxite (an aluminum oxide and primary source of aluminum ore) was dissolved in cryolite which is a ten-atom molecule composed of one aluminum, three sodium and six fluorine atoms. They then used an electrolysis process and charged the mix thus separating the aluminum. When the aluminum was removed, the deadly poison sodium fluoride was (and still is!) the main byproduct. Wade Frazier explains the process in detail in his comprehensive report Fluoridation: A Horror Story. Fluoride is the bi-product of aluminum smelting and it is indeed a toxic waste.

So now we know what fluoride is, but what is it used for besides ‘protecting’ our teeth? Here are other uses of fluoride: Fluorine and its compounds are used in producing isotopically fractionated uranium (from UF6). Commercial fluorochemicals are used in many well known high-temperature plastics. Hydrofluoric acid is extensively used for etching the glass of light bulbs, etc. and fluorochloro hydrocarbons are used extensively in air conditioning and refrigeration.

3. A Brief History (A)

Very rare do we find a teacher that makes history fun and enlightening. My history teacher was boring at best and made us memorize numerous dates and tested us on those dates. Numbers with no meaning. He also fed us Amerika is the greatest country in the world BS without ever using history to show us why it was. I dreaded history because of the way it was taught to me. In my reports to you I always include a history because that is how we learn. History does indeed repeat itself, but if one is ignorant of it, then history is free to repeat itself again and again. Read. Read. Read. Knowledge is Power. Published here is some of that knowledge so that you may, dear reader, have power over your own body. Question Authority.

The first recorded instance of fluoride being dumped into the drinking water was in Nazi Germany. They did this to control the population and the minds of the people. Seventy some years later, this horrific Past has reared its ugly head once again. The Amerikan government has been steadfastly condoning fluoride in the water for its population since the 50s (not long after WWII, surprise surprise!). Many suspect that it is done to keep control of the American people under the BS guise of protecting their teeth. How absurd is that? Many countries have resisted fluoride in the water. Most of Europe is un-fluoridated.

It is a historical fact that Germany fluoridated Poland’s water before they invaded in 1939.  Was this to protect their teeth before they invaded their country and started killing them? Why would Nazi Germany fluoridate the water of a country that they would invade? This question begs looking into, eh?

The Nazi’s realized through human experimentation that fluoride actually made one docile and thus obedient (see Effects on the Body below).  Food For Thought: what do you suppose became of all the Nazi scientists and doctors after WWII? Were they tried and executed like many of the Nazi soldiers? Hardly. The majority of them received immunity and were allowed into the United States, bringing all there valuable human experimentation reports and knowledge with them. And the Flower Children are worried about testing on animals?

4. The Effects On the Body (A)

The positive effects of fluoride on the teeth are questionable. Research has been repressed and scientists have lost their jobs for reporting the truth, but here are some of the things that fluoride DOES do to the body and no scientist worth his salt can deny.

*Fluoride exposure disrupts the synthesis of collagen and leads to the breakdown of collagen in bone, tendon, muscle, skin, cartilage, lungs, kidney and trachea.

*Fluoride stimulates granule formation and oxygen consumption in white blood cells, but inhibits these processes when the white blood cell is challenged by a foreign agent in the blood.

*Fluoride confuses the immune system and causes it to attack the body’s own tissues, and increases the tumor growth rate in cancer prone individuals.

*Fluorides have a disruptive effect on various tissues in the body.

*Fluoride inhibits antibody formation in the blood.

*Fluoride promotes development of bone cancer.

*Soluble fluoride in drinking water (2 ppm) causes mottled enamel in teeth in children.

*Fluoride was found to be an equivocal carcinogen by the National Cancer Institute Toxicological Program.

*The reproductive effects of fluoride intake: lower birth rates, sperm count, and testosterone levels.

*Studies show there may be grave implications by ingesting fluoride. Findings point to Alzheimer disease, Dementia, Attention Deficit Disorder and reduced IQ in children.

*There is no scientific data that shows that fluoride mouth rinses and tablets are safe for human use.

Neurotoxicity of Fluoride, Fluoride, 1996, 29:2, 57-58 (Editorial by AWB and JC). This report has an interesting paper by Dr. Phyllis Mullenix and her collaborators. They recorded behavioral changes in rats after ingestion of fluoride, and found that the severity of the effect on behavior increased directly with plasma fluoride levels and fluoride concentration in specific brain regions. A reading of the full paper is well worthwhile. In their introduction, after observing an increase of dental fluorosis in humans after decades of water fluoridation, the authors comment:

“One concern that has not been fully investigated is the link between fluoride and effects on the central nervous system (CNS)…. Many years of ubiquitous fluoride exposure have not resulted in obvious CNS problems such as seizures, lethargy, salivation, tremors, paralysis, or sensory deficits. Still unexplored, however, is the possibility that fluoride exposure is linked with subtle brain dysfunction.”

If only one thing listed here is true, that should be enough to make some life changes.  Don’t ya think? Question Authority.


1855, 1893, 1907:Smelters in Freiburg, Germany pay damages to neighbors injured by fluoride emissions. Fluorides are also identified as the cause of crippled cattle in the area since 1877.

1916:The first evidence of brown mottling of teeth is reported in the United States, and would be eventually found to be caused by fluorides in water.
1928:Sigmund Freud’s nephew, Edward Bernays, writes the book Propaganda. He explains how to control the public mind: “those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. Our minds are molded; our tastes are formed, largely by men we have never heard of.” He goes on; “if you can influence group leaders, either with or without their conscious cooperation, you automatically influence the group which they sway.”
1930:Kettering Laboratory is founded from gifts from Ethyl Corporation, General Electric and DuPont (all connected I.G. Farben in Germany) to “investigate chemical hazards in American industrial operations” under contract, with provision that research “shall not be released to the public without the consent of the contracting company.” During the mid-20th century, Kettering dominated the medical literature on the toxicology of fluorides, but information wasn’t released to the public.
1931:Three independent groups of scientists determine that fluoride in the water is the cause of dental mottling. Dr. Gerald Cox of the Mellon Institute, owners of Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA), would later solve the expensive disposal problem with toxic fluorides by convincing others that it could be dumped in the public water supply as a “preventative” for tooth decay.
1931:Public Health Service dentist H. Trendley Dean is dispatched by ALCOA founder Andrew Mellon to certain remote towns in the Western U.S. where water wells have a naturally high concentration of calcium fluorides. Dean’s mission would be to find out how much fluoride people could physically tolerate before obvious visible damage to their teeth. Dean publishes a purposely skewed and deceptive study which purports to show that at 1ppm, fluorides result in the “reduction of tooth decay”.
1931 to 1939:The U.S. Public Health Service seeks to remove fluorides from water supplies because of endemic mottled teeth. ALCOA’s fluoride proposals have not been made known to the public or government yet.
1931:I.G. Farben and ALCOA sign Altered Agreement pooling patents, which would continue through 1939 and beyond. I.G. Farben complex begins large contributions to fund Nazi cause.
1939:ALCOA-sponsored biochemist Gerald J. Cox fluoridates rats in his lab and mysteriously concludes that “fluoride reduces cavities”. He makes a public proposal that the U.S. should fluoridate its water supplies. Cox begins to tour the U.S. promoting fluoridation.
1939: September 29, Mellon Institute scientist Gerald J. Cox plays a major role in the promotion of fluoridation by saying “the present trend toward removal of fluorides from food and water may need reversal. Water engineers had been recommending a maximum allowable fluoride contaminant level of 0.1 part per million (ppm), maintaining a tenfold margin of safety. (When fluorides were eventually added to water through Korporate pressure, that safety factor would be thrown out and the level raised tenfold beyond the engineering recommendations in 1939, when fluoride was properly recognized as a toxic contaminant. Note: Mellon Institute was founded by Andrew and Richard Mellon, former owners of ALCOA, plagued by disposal problems of toxic fluoride by products.

1939:U.S. Public Health Service regulations state “the presence of fluorides in excess of 1 ppm shall constitute rejection of the water supply.” (Yet, when water fluoridation is instituted, levels are set at a minimum of 1 ppm)
1942: Germany becomes world’s largest producer of aluminum (and Sodium Fluoride). Fluoride is used in the concentration camps to render the prisoners docile and inhibit the questioning of authority.
1944: Oscar Ewing is put on the payroll of the ALCOA, as an attorney. In 1947, Ewing was made Federal Security Agency (FSA) Administrator. The US Public Health Service, then a division of the FSA, comes under the command of Ewing, and he begins to vigorously promote fluoridation nationwide. Ref: May 25-27 Hearings before the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce. Ewing’s public relations strategist for the fluoride campaign was Freud’s nephew, Edward L. Bernays. Bernays conducts a public relations campaign to promote fluorine ingestion by applying Freudian theory to induce public acceptance. It was one of Bernays most successful campaigns.

1950: The 24th edition of the U.S. Dispensatory (pp 1456-1457) defines fluorides as “violent poisons to all living tissue because of their precipitation of calcium. They cause fall of blood pressure, respiratory failure, and general paralysis. Continuous ingestion of non-fatal doses causes permanent inhibition of growth … the use of fluoride-containing dentifrices and internal medicants is not justified.” In subsequent editions, the editors removed this entire portion. Why? Science and biology don’t change. Political agendas do.
1950:The U.S. Public Health Service officially publicly endorses the concept of the addition of fluorides to public water supplies.
1950:The Seventh Annual Report of the Sugar Research Foundation (SRF) recognizes sugar as the major cause of tooth decay. The SRF furnishes grants to the Harvard Department of Nutrition to “solve the tooth decay problem without restricting sugar consumption”. The result of these grants was the advocating of water fluoridation. Two institutions most aggressive in promotion of water fluoridation, the Dental Schools of Harvard and the University of Rochester, receive large grants for fluoride research from the sugar industry (does anyone see anything wrong with this?).
1950:Soviets add fluorides to water in prison system to maintain subservience in the inmate population. In the 1940’s, fluorides are shipped to the Soviets from the U.S. via Alaska for use in their Gulag prison system. The U.S. continues to promote use of fluoride in the public water supplies.
1952: After Dr. A.L. Miller, former Nebraska Health Commissioner, became a Congressman, and found he’d been bamboozled by the former highly paid attorney for ALCOA; Oscar Ewing, into helping fluoridate the water of Washington, D.C.  Miller revealed at a Congressional Hearing (March 24, 1952 Congressional Record), how he had been misled. He asked how Mr. Ewing became Federal Security Administrator and whether ALCOA “might not have a deep interest in getting rid of the waste products from the manufacture of aluminum products”. Miller asked Dr. John D. Porterfield of the U.S. Department of Agriculture if studies had been done to see what fluorides might do to pregnant women. Porterfield replied, “They have different objectives in mind, sir. There is more money available for matters that have economic value than there is for health.”
1952:The American Dental Association (ADA) publishes an issue of its Journal instructing its dentists not to discuss their personal opinions about fluoride.
1952 to 1956:The cities on the “fluoridation list” begin to fluoridate their water supplies. As the process of water fluoridation continued, the cancer death rate of the fluoridated cities began to exceed the rate of un-fluoridated cities.
1954: Scientist Charles E. Perkins is sent to Germany by the U.S. after WW2 to supervise the breakup of I.G. Farben. He states: “the real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the resistance of the masses to domination and control, and loss of liberty.”
1954:The Christian Science Monitor surveyed all 81 Nobel Prize winners in the fields of chemistry, medicine and physiology on their opinion regarding water fluoridation. Seventy-nine percent failed to endorse water fluoridation, which the promoters claim is endorsed by all “reputable” scientists.
1955:Dr. William Wolf, a clinical professor at New York University School of Dentistry, observes four cases of poisoning from drinking fluoridated water. After verifying the diagnosis, he warns colleagues. The Dean of the University then informs him that his teaching services are no longer needed. Wolf informs the Dean that he’ll go public. The Dean drops the matter.
1957: June 22: Controversial statement from Oliver Kenneth Goff (a member of the Communist Party and the Young Communist League from May 2, 1936 to October 9, 1939), reveals he testified before the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1939, as to the implementation of the fluoridation of American public water supplies in the same way they used it as a brain tranquillizer at Soviet prison camps. Goff reflected that the Party leaders felt fluoridation would bring about lethargy in the U.S, and keep the public docile during a steady encroachment of Communism. Also discussed, was keeping a store of deadly fluoride near the water supplies where during a time of revolt it could be dumped wholesale into the water supply and either kill off the populace, or threaten them with liquidation, so that they would surrender to obtain fresh water. (See Ref#64,65). Sworn statement in Arapahoe Country, Colorado, notarized. (Ref: Fluoridation, by Isabel Jansen, R.N, 1990, ISBN 0-932298-73-7, page 128, Tri-State Press, Antigo, Wisconsin 54409)

1959:In the report of the proceedings of the 3rd Medical-Dental Conference on the Evaluation of Fluoridation, held on March 7, 1959 in New York City, the committee concluded that “It is apparent that the practice of fluoridation is not the simple, trustworthy procedure that the promoting authorities have given the profession and the public to believe. Added to the lack of control of fluorides at the consumers tap are these major uncertainties: the gross variation in individual water consumption, the varied intake of fluorides in food and the fluoride intake from atmospheric and occupational exposure. These unpredictable issues make meaningless any talk about “controlled individual fluorine intake.” Most, if not all of this research has been buried by the authorities, who maintain glibly that “fluoride compounds are safe in the water supply”. This is willful criminal negligence and conspiracy.
1960:The ADA issues a pamphlet for public consumption called Fluoridation Facts: Answers to Criticisms of Fluoridation. In defense of the use of toxic fluoride compounds in public water supplies (which is a grievous crime against humanity, since it means mandated involuntary public medication), they used the logic that “people have been known to live to a ripe old age” in areas where the water supply is fluoridated. Unfortunately, they neglected to mention that the addition of fluoride to the water supply correlated directly with the number of still births, mongoloid children, brittle teeth, enlarged dental root structures, adverse spinal conditions, osteomalacia (softening of the bones), and osteoporosis (abnormally porous and spaced structure inside bone) in the medicated population as opposed to control populations that were un-medicated.

1960:The Committee on Fluoride meets in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Dr. G.E. Hall guides the deliberations. His daughter was employed by an aluminum corporation with fluoride pollution problems, he was himself serving as honorary advisory director for a leading fluoridation promotion organization, and his university (University of Western Toronto) was the recipient of grants from the U.S. Public Health Service (three conflicts of interest). Fluoridation of all public water supplies in Canada was advocated.
1961:Sweden’s Supreme Court declared fluoridation illegal.
1964:The Ministry of the Interior of Denmark issues a public announcement “fluoridation of public water supplies as well as of all consumables is prohibited”.
1965: When asked about the advisability of adding sodium fluoride to table salt, the FDA on July 12th answered, “We would consider the addition of sodium fluoride to table salt as a violation of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.”
1968:Emmanuel Landau, Ph.D., Statistical Advisor for the Center of Air Pollution Control, admits that fluoride pollution poses a potential danger to humans, saying “anything we don’t know about constitutes a potential hazard. We know almost nothing about fluoride pollution. There is a great need for more research.” [Note: Here we see the repeated lie that “little is known about fluoride pollution”, despite the fact that there are probably more studies and more articles written on fluoride toxicity than on any other poison.]
1969:The fluoridated cities had an average cancer death rate of 225 per 100,000 people, while non-fluoridated cities had an average cancer death rate of 195 per 100,000. The data indicates a fluoride-linked increase of cancer of 10% in 13 -17 years. These figures were checked and confirmed in 1979 by the U.S. National Cancer Institute. The increase in cancer death observed in fluoridated cities occurred primarily in people ages 45 and over; this fact is explainable because both the immune system and the normal DNA repair process (the two major defense systems against cancer) decline with age.
1970: (April) A spokesman for Reynolds Aluminum Company is quoted in the Environmental Handbook Prepared for the First National Environmental Teach-In as stating that “it is cheaper to pay fines for polluting the environment than to control fluorides” (pay for the destruction of fluoride hazardous wastes).
1971:In the AMA’s Drug Evaluation News, physicians are advised not to give children fluoride and vitamin pills together. [Note: Children do not retain as much fluoride when they are also given essential nutrients such as calcium, which acts as an antidote to fluorides. It leads one to wonder why the AMA would want children to accumulate more fluorides.] Also, a study conducted by Dr.S.H. Cohn and his associates at the Medical Research Center, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, Long Island (reported in the January American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, concluded that fluorides cannot be considered an effective treatment for osteoporosis.
1971:Germany bans water fluoridation.
1971:The Swedish Parliament repeals the country’s fluoridation law on Nov 18, and in doing so stated “valid evidence to support the claims widely quoted by fluoridation proponents simply does not exist”. The American news media maintained silence in not reporting this notable event. [Fluoridation and Truth Decay, Caldwell, 1974, p.287 ] See 1961.
1972:Sweden bans water fluoridation.
1972:A scientific study published in the AMA publication Archives of Environmental Health (July) showed “dangerous levels of lead (above 5%) in the outer coatings of tubes of Crest, Fresh Breath, Macleans, Craig Martin and Worthmore toothpastes”. The article also stated that “potentially hazardous amounts of lead in the toothpaste itself were found in Crest, Fresh Breath and Worthmore toothpastes”. As expected, toothpaste makers denied these findings, but presented no documentation to justify their denial. These disclosures are additional reasons for attaching little scientific merit to an ADA endorsement, including its endorsement of fluoridation.
1972:On February 22, opponents of water fluoridation in Massachusetts appeared before the Legislative Social Service Committee to speak in favor of a bill asking for an impartial study commission to evaluate the dental and medical effects of fluoridation in communities fluoridated for 10 or more years. However, dentists and public health officials fought desperately to prevent this bill from appearing before the legislature (Surprised?)
1973:Netherlands bans water fluoridation on June 22. Holland’s Supreme Court ruled that “In its judgment, the High Court considered the fluoridating of a public water supply to be a medical measure and outside the purpose of the Dutch waterworks law which obligates a water board to ensure a supply of wholesome drinking water without the addition of any medical substance.”
1975:Dr. John Yiamouyiannis publishes a preliminary survey which shows that people in fluoridated areas have a higher cancer death rate than those in non-fluoridated areas. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) attempts to refute the studies. Later in 1975, Yiamouyiannis joins with Dr. Dean Burk, chief chemist of the NCI (1939-1974) in performing other studies which are then included in the Congressional Record by Congressman Delaney, who was the original author of the Delaney Amendment, which prohibited the addition of cancer-causing substances to food used for human consumption. Both reports confirmed the existence of a link between fluoridation and cancer. (Note: Obviously Dr. Burk felt free to agree with scientific truth only after his tenure at NCI ended, since his job depended on towing the party line).
1977:Congressional representative L.H. Fountain, chairman of the 1977 Sub-Committee Hearings on Fluoride, states that “the carcinogenic nature of fluoride remains unanswered” and orders the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS – in on the fluoride conspiracy anyway!) “to conduct animal studies to see if fluoride causes cancer”. Dr. Herman Kraybill, from the NCI (who in 1972 had been chosen by NCI to write a memo saying that fluorides don’t cause cancer) was placed in charge of these studies. Kraybill boldly states, “this will be the final study to confirm negativity of fluoride ions in carcinogenesis.” He cites 13 studies having nothing to do with the subject of fluorides and cancer in order to support his claim that “no link between fluorides and cancer existed.” (NCI Director Dr. Arthur Upton later admitted the 13 studies had nothing to do with the subject of the study). Congressman Fountain showed that Dr. Hoover and other NCI officials had purposely withheld information and had purposely sent fraudulent data to professors at Oxford, who published data as their own, defending the use of fluorides.
1978:Pomeranian Medical Academy in Poland discovers that fluorides cause genetic damage in human blood cells.
1979:The January 20th edition of the New York Times carried a story in which a child was killed because of a lethal dose of fluoride at a city dental clinic. The parents were awarded $750,000.
1983:The U.S. EPA deputy assistant administrator Rebecca Hammer points out that fluoride-polluting industries can get paid for using public drinking water as a sewer for their toxic waste products when she says “this agency regards the use of fluorisilic acid as a source of fluorides for water fluoridation an ideal environmental solution to a long standing problem of contamination of the water and air from fertilizer manufacturing.”
1983:A symposium takes place at the University of Michigan after years of planning between the US Dept. of Health and Human Services, the USPHS Michigan state health plans, the Kellogg Foundation, CDC,Medical Products Labs and others to “discuss the status of organized opposition to fluoridation, to analyze probable motives influencing the anti-fluoride movement, to develop political and legal strategies for the defense and promotion of fluoridation, and to access the need for a national fluoridation strategy.” Dr. Dennis Leverett of the University of Rochester reported that his committee felt that fluoridation was a “political issue and not a scientific situation”.

The Symposium was a taxpayer-supported event. Also attending were members of the ADA National Fluoridation Advisory Committee, John Small (the government’s pro-fluoride czar), the American Association of Dental Schools, members from the Illinois and Ohio State Departments of Health, and the Chief Dental Officer of the Department of Health and Human Services. The proceedings were published in a 129-page book titled “Fluoridation: Litigation and Changing Public Policy.” Dr. William T.Jarvis, a member of the board of the American Council of Science and Health (a front group for the junk food industry), speaks on “The Psychology of Anti-fluoridation”, noting that debates on fluoride always “seems to result in people becoming anti-fluoridationist.” Dr. Stephen Corbin of the USPHS suggested that a mandatory State Fluoridation Law be developed, and a Dr. Easley suggested processes be initiated to deny those seeking relief through the courts their right to due process.

Dr. D. Scott of Blue Cross/Blue Shield suggested that the cost of litigation defending fluoridation should be borne by taxpayers! Ms. Colleen Wulf of the Ohio Department of Health reported that her committee suggested formation of a non-profit organization which would coordinate with CDC and ADA, and pointed out that CDC has already drafted promotional materials for fluoride, and that the ADA and the USPHS had already formed an ad-hoc Committee to plan for the Legal Defense of Community Water Fluoridation. She suggested the name of the new group might be the “Coalition for Improved Dental Health, or something similar”. NOT ONE SCIENTIST ATTENDED the University of Michigan Symposium: those attending were dental hygienists, two dentists, five had degrees in P.R., Education, Psychology, or Public Health, one had no degree at all and the introduction was written by psychiatrist Stephen Barrett, who ironically would maintain a website in 1997 on “medical quackery”.
1985:The work of Takuya Saito in Japan demonstrates that even micro molecular amounts of fluoride, below 1ppm, may seriously depress the ability of white blood cells to destroy pathogenic agents in the body.
1986: Study by Kay, A.R., et al, is published in the Journal of Neuroscience (Vol 6, pp.2915-2920,1986), “Fluoride in cerebrospinal fluid of patients with fluorosis”, in which it was shown that intracellular fluorides can alter the kinetic properties of calcium currents in hippocampal neurons, which can affect behavior.
1989:In 1989 Dr.Yiamouyiannis used the Freedom of Information Act to obtain carcinogenicity studies conducted by Proctor and Gamble (one of the makers of fluoridated toothpaste) that were submitted to (and covered up by) the U.S. Public Health Service. These studies showed dose dependent cell abnormalities caused by fluoride. These results were reported in the February 22, 1990 issue of the Medical Tribune. Additional studies by Proctor and Gamble scientists confirmed the link between oral precancerous growth and fluoride, as well as an increase in osteomas (bone tumors) and osteosarcomas (bone cancer). In fact, the National Cancer Institute found in 1991 that the incidence of bone cancer was 50% higher in males 0-19 years of age exposed to fluoridated water compared to those who were not.
1990:The ADA issues a Press Release which states “water fluoridation remains the safest, most effective, and most economical public health measure to reduce tooth decay.”
1990:The National Toxicology Program in February releases its pathological data tables with a cover letter which, in a turnabout, claims “there has not been any evidence that shows a relationship between fluoridation and cancer or any other diseases in humans”, and “water fluoridation has proven highly effective in improving the nation’s dental health by markedly reducing tooth decay”. The NTP final report, issued in March, omitted all studies which showed genetic damage from fluorides, and important studies showing that fluorides induce tumors and cancers were ignored. Kraybill, head of the NTP study, becomes a consultant to the American Council of Science and Health (ACSH), who threatens to sue the EPA if it “tries to undermine public confidence in fluoride.”
1990:A study by Dr.John Yiamouyiannis on 39,000 school children contradicts any alleged benefits from the use of sodium fluorides.
1990:Dr. John Colquhoun in New Zealand is forced into early requirement in New Zealand after he conducts a study on 60,000 school children and finds no difference in tooth decay between fluoridated and un-fluoridated areas. He also finds that a substantial number of children in fluoridated areas suffered from dental fluorosis. He makes the study public.
1991:The EPA again engages ICAIR Life Systems to perform a “literature search on fluorides”. A researcher for ICAIR, Dr. John Beaver, admits that he was instructed to select only certain reports and ignore others. The final series of reports was sent to EPA, who forwarded them to the Subcommittee on Risk Assessment of Ingested Fluoride of the National Academy of Sciences as an “independent” report. Five out of eight members of the Subcommittee are historically pro-fluoridation.
1992:Michael Perrone, a legislative assistant in New Jersey, contacts the FDA requesting all information regarding the safety and effectiveness of fluoride tablets and drops. After 6 months of stalling, the FDA admitted they had no data to show that fluoride tablets or drops were either safe or effective. They informed Perrone that they will “probably have to pull the tablets and drops off the market.”

1992:Another scientific study reveals that fluorides suppress the immune system. [Gibson, S., “Effects of Fluoride on the Immune System”, Complimentary Medical Research, Vol 6, No.3, October 1992, pp.111-113.]
1992:The EPA is ordered to reinstate a senior scientist, William Marcus, and pay him $50,000 for emotional distress, after firing him because he publicly questioned and opposed EPA policy on the use of fluorides in water supplies.
1994:A study on the physiological and behavioral effects of Sodium Fluoride is published on October 12. The study is done by Mullenix, Denbensten, Schunior and Kernan, from the Toxicology Department, Forsyth Research Institute in Boston, the Department of Radiation Oncology, Harvard Medical School, the Department of Pediatric Dentistry, Eastman Dental Center, and the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory at Iowa State University. According to the study (published in Neurotoxicology and Teratology, Vol 17, No. 2, pp. 169-177, 1995), while fluorides have a great number of effects on the body, the effect on the brain and central nervous system structures were examined, and it was found that fluorides affect the hippocampus, the central processor which integrates input from the environment, memory, and motivational stimuli to produce behavioral decisions and modify the memory.

1995:In Australia, the Tasmanian government passes a bill to prohibit the holding of meetings on the subject of fluoridation. Called the “Consequential Amendments Bill”, it is later withdrawn for rewording and reissue at a later date.
1995:A Chinese study on fluorides finds that the IQ of children is lowered in fluoridated areas. Zhang, I.B., et al, “Effect of a High Fluoride Water Supply on Children’s Intelligence”
1995:On the 50th anniversary of fluoridation in the United States and Canada, a study published by P.Mullenix et al, reveals “the functional output of the central nervous system is vulnerable to fluorides, and that the effects on behavior depend on the age at which exposure takes place and how much fluoride accumulates in brain tissue.” Furthermore, “fluorides in drinking water affect the nervous system directly without first causing skeletal deformations from fluorosis”. Proponents of fluoridation typically use fluorosis as a measure of effect, when in fact neural effects occur at a very low dosage.


Research and decide for yourself. Take control of your body! Remember though evidence strongly suggests the masses are being slowly poisoned by fluoride, it matters not if you believe it or not. What matters is that the government and Korporations have decided to medicate the masses. They are gaining ever-more control of your Health. They make sure that certain vitamins and plants illegal because that is how they stay in power and control. Why is alcohol legal and hemp illegal? Alcohol is clearly worse on the body.  Education is key. Developing your body and mind and achieving total balance in your life should be your life goal. Look for signs of government/Korporation intervention and avoid it like the plague. Question Authority. In fact, question what I write here. I beg you Dear Reader; prove me wrong. I seek Truth. Your Health and what you ingest should be YOUR decision, no one else’s.

There are those of us who seek Truth and Question Authority. We’re not conspiracy theorists, though every conspiracy begins with a theory. We’re not deranged, paranoid, internet geeks reading all the hype on the internet. We’re Lovers of Mother Earth, Humanity and Freedom. We seek knowledge; for Knowledge is Power. Not the Power that Korporations and many politicians seek; but the Power over our minds and bodies; the Power to live free and have control over our lives. This has been an ongoing battle for centuries.

For those of you seeking Truth; there will be those who disagree. There will be antagonists, pessimists, propagandists and such from the other side; this is good. Listen to them and research what they have to say. Be Aware: Answers are everywhere.

Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, John L. O’Sullivan and Henry David Thoreau have all in their own way said it best: an ideal government is that which governs least. I agree 100%.
