Prior to 1945 when communal water fluoridation took effect, fluoride was a known toxin.
For example, a 1936 issue of the Journal of the American Dental Association stated that fluoride at the 1 ppm (part per million) concentration is as toxic as arsenic and lead.
The Journal of the American Medical Association stated in their September 18, 1943 issue, that ‚Äúfluorides are general protoplasmic poisons that change the permeability of the cell membrane by certain enzymes.‚Äù And, an editorial published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, October 1, 1944, stated,
“Drinking water containing as little as 1.2 ppm fluoride will cause developmental disturbances. We cannot run the risk of producing such serious systemic disturbances. The potentialities for harm outweigh those for good.”
More recently, Christopher Bryson, award winning journalist and former producer at the BBC revealed the multi-tiered abuse of power by military and industry scientists and public health officials in his book The Fluoride Deception. In it, he describes the intertwined interests that existed in the 1940‚Äôs and 50‚Äôs between the aluminum industry, the U.S. nuclear weapons program, and the dental industry, which resulted in fluoride being declared not only safe, but ‚Äúbeneficial to human health.‚Äù
The political back story of how fluoride was introduced into your drinking water reads like a cross between a psychological thriller and mind-boggling science fiction.
Read Bryson‚Äôs book, and you‚Äôll never think of fluoride the same again‚Ä¶ Because the bottom line is that when you swallow fluoride, it does nothing to decrease disease, it merely accelerates it.
