Why Is Fluoride In Our Water? Some Thoughts For You To Consider
Let me remind my readers at the outset that I have NEVER claimed to be anything more than a concerned and interested citizen. I have never, on any of my posts or articles laid claim to any sort of medical, engineering or scientific expertise or qualifications. I'm just a regular family man who has simply had my fill of lies and deceptions, half-truths and condescension's all wrapped up in red, white and blue ribbons. Sheltering the public from grim realities and making decisions behind our backs in the name of our best interest hasn't seemed to have worked very well thus far. I firmly believe that there are many in power who regard humanity merely as an asset or liability without the least bit of concern for the individual, let alone his/her right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Hence, my quest for truth. So now I arrive at the interesting question, why is there fluoride in our water?
I've done a little research on this subject and have, of course, heard the seemingly wild accusations - everything from fluoride being a method of slowly poisoning the population to using it to pacify and control us. For myself, after researching it a bit, I think the answer lies somewhere in between. Just like many other "conspiracy theories", when taken individually or out of context the subject seems little more than an imaginative farce. But, often times, there is a sequential connecting of the dots, so to speak, that is required before a pattern emerges and all of the pieces begin to reveal a big picture. Some will say that such an approach is paranoid. Such may be the case if ones assumptions and conclusions are made without ample study and objectivity, but to anyone simply seeking truth and asking questions it is a natural progression.
"In 1945, Grand Rapids, Michigan, adjusted the fluoride content of its water supply to 1.0 ppm and thus became the first city to implement community water fluoridation. By 1992, more than 60 percent of the U.S. population served by public water systems had access to water fluoridated at approximately 1.0 ppm" - National Cancer Institute. Our water is fluoridated under the pretext that it is a means to prevent tooth decay. Interestingly, however, fluoride is, not only toxic, but potentially lethal - in higher doses, of course. On the back of your toothpaste tube you will find that it says that if more than the amount used for bushing your teeth (or the size of a pea) is swallowed, you should call poison control immediately. This raises a few flags, doesn't it? In my mind, it's similar to recommending that we gargle with ammonia in order to reduce the risk of heart disease - but whatever you do, don't swallow any, because its poison! Seems like there might be a better way to protect our teeth than a life-long ingestion of a known poison.

Now, for the other side of the argument. I will only say this, and leave the conclusions up to you -
"The 'substance' referred to as 'Fluoride' is a misnomer - there is no such substance listed in the periodic chart of the elements, nor in the prestigious CRC handbook, nor in the sacred 'bible' of the pharmaceutical industry - the illustrious 'Merck Index'. Instead, we find a GAS called Fluorine - and from the use of this gas in various industries such as aluminum manufacturing and the nuclear industry -certain toxic byproducts are created which have 'captured' fluorine molecules. One such toxic, poisonous 'byproduct' is called sodium Fluoride - which according to the Merck Index is primarily used as rat and cockroach poison and is also the active ingredient in most toothpastes and as an "additive to drinking water". But sadly, there is much more to this sordid tale.
Did you know that sodium Fluoride is also one of the basic ingredients in both PROZAC (FLUoxetene Hydrochloride) and Sarin Nerve Gas (Isopropyl-Methyl-Phosphoryl FLUORIDE) - (Yes, folks the same Sarin Nerve Gas that terrorists released on a crowded Japanese subway train!). Let me repeat: the truth the American public needs to understand is the fact that Sodium Fluoride is nothing more (or less) than a hazardous waste by-product of the nuclear and aluminum industries. In addition to being the primary ingredient in rat and cockroach poisons, it is also a main ingredient in anesthetic, hypnotic, and psychiatric drugs as well as military NERVE GAS! Why, oh why then is it allowed to be added to the toothpastes and drinking water of the American people?" - A. Ott from the article "The Truth About Fluoride" which can be read in its entirety at:
Did you further know that -
"Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluoride will in time reduce an individuals power to resist domination, by slowly poisoning and narcotizing a certain area of the brain, thus making him submissive to the will of those who wish to govern him. [A convenient and cost-effective light lobotomy? --- Ott]".
And so, as the pieces begin to fit together a consistent pattern emerges. That pattern is one of control, pacification, and power. I have reminded my readers before that Big Brother wants you to leave the thinking to him. He knows what is best for your children. He knows what is best for you. He does not wish to be questioned and buys your silence in so many ways. Were this not so then why not ,instead, utilize an education campaign whereby the public is notified that they should be ingesting fluoride for the good or their teeth, and then the individuals themselves can decide if they want to participate in such a program or not? I'll tell you why - Because Big Brother is doing the thinking for you! If you are left to make your own decisions, you'll likely make the wrong ones. Your fluoride ingestion is good for the party.
Perhaps I'm wrong. Perhaps there are no power-hungry people in the world. Maybe EVERYONE just wants to get along with EVERYONE, right? You decide for yourself, but as for me...I'll err on the side of caution!
