Fluoride: A Second Look

In the presence of fluoride, bones become weak and brittle, subject to fracture, and the connective tissue and collagen structures within the fibro-cartilage matrix become so scattered that calcium is drawn into places where it normally would not go. This confusion creates spurs and jagged deposits of calcium around the joints, resulting in painful immobilizing osteoarthritis. And along with it, a greater risk of bone cancer has been reported in artificially fluoridated areas. What we usually see, as a result of fluoride toxicity, is mental confusion, depression, low thyroid, and often non-specific painful bladder irritation, known as interstitial cystitis. Ironically, fluoride damages tooth enamel, and does not protect the teeth from cavities.

Don’t let your dentist set your children up for this tragedy with fluoride treatments! If he recommends fluoride, don’t get on his case, he would never hurt your children purposely. He just hasn’t stayed in touch with the new findings. Since you know that fluoride is cumulative and could devastate your children in later life, you are in a position to say NO to the treatments. Let yourself be called a “crank.” Let yourself observe his dismissive smile, listen to his discounting comments, and let that all go. What he thinks of fluoride, and what he thinks of you, is unimportant. Your priority is your kids.

You can protect your kids with high calcium foods, (carrots, sunflower seeds, greens, organic milk, trace minerals that contain molybdenum,) change to non-fluoridated toothpaste, limit the sugar, and eliminate cola drinks. Then clear out any accumulated fluoride from years of drinking toxic water, colas, and well-meaning dental exposures. To release residual fluoride, take DMAE. 

The value of municipal fluoridation is beginning to be seriously questioned, and the negative impact is beginning to be documented and publicized more widely. Since fluoride exposure is cumulative, significant health problems are starting to show up. There is enough fluoride in a tube of Crest to kill a small child. Fluoride drops are given to babies as a "supplement" by pediatricians, and on top of this, fluoride rinses and gels are given to children by dentists, and put into children's vitamins. Fluoride pills are often given to pregnant mothers. People are being exposed to levels of fluoride that go far beyond the amount added to the water supply, but even that level is considered to be an on-going risk.

Below is a list of some health effects of fluoride, cited in the book Fluoride, the Aging Factor, by Dr. John Yiamouyannis.

1. Fluoride disrupts the connective tissue, causing excessive cross-linking, cysts, and premature aging of the skin.

2. Bone deposited under the influence of fluoridation may appear dense, but it is brittle, weak, and susceptible to fracture. Hip fracture is being reported far more frequently in fluoridated areas than non-fluoridated areas.

3. Many comprehensive studies have been conducted that involved enormous numbers of children, comparing the fluoridated group to the controls, in an attempt to demonstrate that fluoride prevents tooth decay. Unless the data can be edited, rearranged and manipulated, no difference can be shown.

4. Normal neurotransmission of acetylcholine in the brain is diminished by fluoride, and this has been implicated in learning disabilities, and Alzheimer's.

5. Fluorine can replace the iodine in the thyroid, causing a hypothyroid condition, requiring pharmaceutical drugs to help with fatigue, hair loss, and weight gain.

6. When fluoride attaches to serotonin it is inactivated, causing depression.

7. Melatonin, derived from fluoridated serotonin, also carries fluoride. Unlike normal melatonin that goes away upon waking, the fluoridated melotonin is maintained in the brain as an on-going signal for drowsiness, and serves as a very significant factor in the etiology of chronic fatigue.

8. Fluoride exposure compromises the immune system, suppressing the NK-cells, and allowing susceptibility to both infectious diseases and bone/liver cancers.

9. Fluoridated water was given to prisoners in Germany by the Nazis, to keep them docile, confused, and easily controlled. This certainly raises a few questions about why certain segments of our government appear to be so insistant about establishing fluoridation in every water supply in the entire country.

At the Bioenergy Balancing Center we recommend that all fluoride sources be avoided. You can protect your teeth by limiting the sugar and cola intake, and taking trace minerals, particularly molybdenum, which really does strengthen the teeth and bones. Molybdenum is an essential nutritional requirement, and has no side effects. Xylitol is a wonderful sugar substitute that has very positive effect, it protects the teeth.

 

A More Technical Appraisal
of the Hazards of Fluoride

Fluoride causes chalky white spots in the teeth, weakens the strength of tooth enamel, can cause pits and dark spots, but what we generally observe is very white opaque patches. A normal tooth is a clear off-white, and slightly translucent. Fluoridated teeth become brittle, crack easily, and wear down unusually quickly under pressure of grinding or TMJ tension. More dental work is required in areas of fluoridation than non-fluoridated areas, oddly enough.

As we trace the sequence of the methionine cascade, everything works well up to S-adenosyl homocysteine. At that point, fluoride enters the cascade and attaches to the S-adenosyl homocysteine. All subsequent metabolites that follow become fluoridated, up to and including taurine.

I have observed, so far, that fluoridated homocysteine is more likely than regular plain homocysteine to create injury to the intima of the arterial lining. This could turn out to be the real culprit by inviting cholesterol attachment and arterial clogging, more than the normal form of homocysteine that is being currently implicated. Not quite sure of that, need more information before we can validate that hypothesis.

The major metabolic avenue that regulates homocysteine involves the addition of serine. That pathway is probably intact, since cystathionine and cysteine seem to be able to carry the fluoride radical without any observable impact. When taurine carries the fluoride radical, it is not able to function well at the thalamus. This suggests that ADD could be induced, or at least exacerbated, by fluoride exposure.

Fluoride can attach to proline, and if it does, it can alter the structure of collagen. The damage appears as excessive thickening and stiffening of cartilage surfaces, and tighter binding of joints, causing joint stiffness. If fluoride appears in fibrocartilage matrix that contains calcium attractors, then inappropriate deposits of flaky bone material appear as painful spurs and they form rough edges between and around the bones. As the bone is remodeled, the strong formation of the original bone is gradually replaced by chalky brittle bone material, susceptible to fracture. Higher incidence of hip fracture in fluoridated areas has been well established.

By setting up proliferation of inaccurate collagen in the lungs and skin, fluoride allows excessive cross-linking and thickening among the supportive tissues of the skin, observed as wrinkling and loss of elasticity, and in conjunction with a mycoplasmic infection this can lead to an incapacitating fibrous condition of the lung tissue.

The accuracy of the thyroxine synthesis is being tampered with by fluoride, since fluorine can replace the iodine on the tyrosine's phenyl structure. When thyroxine carries a fluorine ion, it cannot be used. Medical tests, however, would indicate that the thyroxine level is normal, even though symptoms of thyroid deficiency would persist. Hypothyroidism by now has become virtually rampant, due to widespread fluoride toxicity, because it causes thyroxine to be unable to function properly. However, the fluoride appears not to interfere with parathyroid hormone or calcitonin.

Fluoride suppresses the immune system by reducing the synthesis of white cells, and in combination with aspartame, contributes to lymphocyte anomalies. This of course increases general susceptibility to viruses, bacteria, fungus infections, and parasites. It does not appear to affect the red cells or platelets. Since diet coke contains both high fluoride and aspartame, it is essential to avoid this hazardous beverage.

Another important effect of fluoride ingestion that I have seen is that the serotonin becomes fluoridated. In this form it can not access its own receptor sites.Then the percentage of the serotonin that is fluoridated creates a shortage of the available serotonin, and the perceived shortage can create depression and despair.

We have made what may turn out to be an important discovery about chronic fatigue. The fluoridated serotonin makes fluoridated melatonin. In this form, it still encourages sleep, but the fluoridated melatonin tends to persist upon waking. Then the cognitive aware brain continues to receive signals that maintain it in a state of on-going signals that say "Sleep. Go back to sleep. You want to sleep." This is the experience of chronic fatigue. The body itself is quite rested and not in need of sleep, but the signal has been corrupted. Mycoplasmic infection can take part in this also, it's not always just about fluoride.

Chronic fatigue also frequently accompanies irritation of the bladder lining, known as cystitis, considered to be an inflammation of unknown origin. It is neither an infection nor an allergy, but at this point our clinical experience indicates that the lining becomes irritated and inflamed by high fluoride intake. There may certainly be other reasons, but this is one to ask about.

Another factor in chronic fatigue that is not related to fluoride or mycoplasma is about the Krebs cycle. When we observe that the Krebs cycle and the electron transport cycle are functioning inefficiently, the ATP is somewhat diminished. Full utilization of B3 and B2 is required for the conversion to NAD and FAD, as these lift the hydrogens off the Krebs and deliver them to the electron transport cycle. When these vitamins are not being utilized adequately, the Krebs cycle slows down, and the natural vitality and stamina of the person is greatly compromised.

The literature suggests that fluoride plays a significant role in the development of cancer. A significant increase in cancer is being reported in fluoridated areas, particularly bone cancer, and liver cancer.

Frequently children's mouths are bathed in concentrated fluoride gels, and routine rinses are given by the dentist during cleanings, and they are even prescribed fluoride pills. Some pediatricians prescribe fluoride drops for babies. Many young people have been exposed prenatally. Most people use fluoridated toothpaste. The fluoride content of the water supply is not totally responsible for creating the full impact of accumulated fluoride effects, but because it is a constant and persistant exposure, and because it is cumulative. Over time, even wthout all that, the water makes a difference. It adds up.

Long term ingestion of just one part per million can create significant health changes. When the exposure is substantially higher, as it is after adding up all these sources, our children will experience some tragic, but predictable consequences in later life, unless we can protect them and inform them of these hazards right now, while they are kids.

To avoid fluoride, you can install a reverse-osmosis filter system. Other filtering systems may also be excellent, you would have to check them out with people who sell filter systems.

Another thing to avoid would be juices made from concentrates. Often these are diluted with fluoridated water. This is not carelessness, nor intention. The trouble is that fluoride is not perceived by many people as a toxic substance. The same applies to bottled water. Often bottled water contains fluoride too. Until you can install a good filter system, it would be a good idea to check each batch of bottled water with your pendulum, because they vary. If you use distilled water, this would be safe from fluoride, but on the other hand it would contain another toxin, chloramine. The best option is Reverse Osmosis filtration.

If you learn how to use a pendulum, this will help you to feel empowered and secure, so that you can thread your way without anxiety through the toxic obstacle-course at the store.

Change your toothpaste if it has fluoride in it. Even though there isn't much of an exposure from toothpaste for adults, kids do swallow it, particularly if it has been sweetened and flavored with cherry or other flavors.

To strengthen your children's teeth, minimize the sugar intake, and give them molybdenum. Some people also need a little extra vanadium too. For kids, one once a week for these traces is usually enough. Molybdenum is purported to actually help heal small cavities. If you drink wine regularly, and/or eat sulfured apricots regularly, extra molybdenum will detoxify the sulfites by changing them to healthful sulfates.

To release an established fluoride exposure, try DMAE. Several companies make it. It is considered to be an enhancement for the brain---and indeed, it certainly is. Whenthe body has sufficient DMAE, accumulated fluoride can be released. DMAE is readily available in the health stores.

Some people can synthesize their own DMAE, and can handle minor exposures without any harmful clinical effects. But, for the most part we are seeing that fluoride plays a significant role in depression, confused thinking, hypothyroidism, chronic fatigue, painful cystitis, as well as bone spurs, stiff painful joints, diminished T-cell activation, and consequent immune deficiency. It doesn't have to be that way for you or your family, if you make the decision to release the fluoride load.

There is a book you may still be able to get at Amazon on the Internet, it is out of print but sometimes they can find copies for you. It is called Fluoride, the Aging Factor, by Dr. John Yiamouyannis. Terrific book, not to miss. It describes who makes the fluoride, why it is being sold to us, and how incredibly easily the dental community was convinced of its efficacy, and how the unsubstantiated myth that fluoride prevents cavities became an "unarguable truth" in the minds of the public.

Another terrific book that goes into more depth and more history, not to miss is The Fluoride Deception by Christopher Bryson. This tells about the origins of the fluoride deception, starting with the Atomic Energy Commission. The refinement of Uranium generated a tremendous amount of fluoride, which drifted over into neighboring houses and farms, etched the glass on their windows, killed their cattle, and sickened the people with tragic and disabling illnesses that had no remedy available.

Much of this information was held secret. The people who were being injured were lied to, and told (threatened) not to complain, because the Atomic Energy Commission must not be challenged. Patriots don't complain. They support the war-effort no matter what. Complaints are disloyal.

This is a very thorough book, well written, goes into fascinating detail, with documentation that is unassailable.

There are many websites that talk about the impact of fluoride now, as the information is beginning to become more widespread. Scope it out.

Another very important source of information, from Nexus Magazine in Australia, is called Fluoridation: Mind Control of the Masses.www.befreetech.com/fluoridation.htm You will probably think it sounds cynical, at first, but this is something that nutritionally aware people need to seriously consider. It shows the underlying intention of fluoridation. After you read this you will have a better understanding of why it is socially, intellectually, and politically essential to protect yourself and your children from this manipulative form of mental disenfrachisment. .
