Flouride in our Water and Toothpaste
Writer: 19 February 2007 | antinewworldorder.blogspot.com
Sodium Fluoride is currently added to the majority of municipal water systems in the U.S. to prevent cavities in children. Its use has risen rapidly since the 1950's. Sodium Fluoride is also registered with the EPA as a rat poison, although advocates say its use in low levels in water poses no adverse health concerns. There has been considerable research done on fluoride regarding cancer, birth defects, and risks to the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and urinary systems, however, very little has been done on its neurological effects.
First Study to Find Neurological Deficits After Fluoride Exposure Chinese investigations have shown levels of fluoride in drinking water at levels of 3-11 ppm affect the nervous system without first causing physical malformations. Another Chinese study found Attention Deficit Disorders in adult humans if sublingual drops containing 100 ppm of sodium fluoride were administered. Sources of fluoride exposure include processed beverages, toothpastes, mouth rinses, dietary supplements and food. This is an exposure level potentially relevant to humans because toothpastes contain 1000 to 1500 ppm fluoride and mouth rinses contain 230-900 ppm fluoride. In the 1995 article appearing in the journal Neurotoxicology and Teratology, Dr. Phyllis J Mullenix states,
"Still unexplored, however, is the possibility that fluoride exposure is linked with subtle brain dysfunction.
This is the first study to demonstrate that central nervous system output is vulnerable to fluoride, that the effects on behavior depend on the age at exposure and that fluoride accumulates in brain tissues. Of course behaviors per se do not extrapolate, but a generic behavioral pattern disruption as found in this rat study can be indicative of potential for motor dysfunction, IQ deficits and/or learning disabilities in humans. Substances that accumulate in brain tissue potentiate concerns about neurotoxic risk." Dr. Phyllis J.

Subject: FLUORIDE IN SCHOOL MILK
Earlier this year, Dr Martin Tickle, dental public health officer, said that parents will be asked to give consent for their children to have fluori-dated milk at school. The World Health Organization warns that in school fluoridated milk schemes testing of urine samples is now considered mandatory, FOR SAFETY REASONS. This is part of international scientific research criteria. Presumably, the Manchester City Council Education Department, to comply with their fiduciary duty, will formally request Parental Consent for their children's urine samples to be analyzed.
Since the addition of a "fluoride" compound ("fluoride," a complete misnomer for a very toxic substance, is cumulative in the body) is intended to create actual bodily change in the children, it is also the Council's fiduciary duty to ensure that the following considerations and adequacy of warnings are taken into account. Parents must be properly WARNED about the side effects of ingested fluoride (i.e. dangers, outlined in the Toxicological Profile for Fluorides, Hydrogen Fluoride and Fluorine, ATSDR, 1993 and Health Effects of Ingested Fluoride, National Research Council, NAS, 1993) before being asked to consent to the dosing of their children. Would you kindly let us know:
- Who will be legally responsible for administering and supervising the ‘fluoride’ supplement to the children in this experiment?
- A child who chooses not to drink milk may pass his/her medication to another child for consumption, which could happen on a daily basis. Which teacher(s) will be legally responsible for ensuring that this does not occur?
- Who will be legally responsible for the collection and labelling of urine samples?
- How often will the children’s urine samples be tested - per week, per month, per term?
- Who will be legally responsible for actually testing the children’s urine samples?
- Who will be legally responsible for the toxicological monitoring of the scheme?
- Who will be responsible for ascertaining that no other fluoride supplements (i.e. drops, tablets, toothpaste, fluorinated medications - i.e. Prozac, fluoroquinolones, asthma inhalers, etc) are being taken by individual children?
The World Health Organization warns, "Dental and public health administrators should be aware of the total fluoride exposure in the population before introducing any additional fluoride programme for caries prevention." (Fluorides and Oral Health, 1994, WHO, Geneva.).
- Who will be legally responsible for assessing the current fluoride exposure of the children before the fluoridated school milk experiment commences?
Before any vote is taken to implement the Fluoride in School Milk scheme, it should be noted that in order to avoid any potential personal liability Councillors who abstain from supporting the scheme should have their abstentions, and their reasons therefore, recorded in the Council Minutes.
