  1. Another win in the battle against fluoride

    Save big money by NOT poisoning your town

    There's finally an issue powerful enough to force communities to think twice about water fluoridation -- and it's not the decades of science that prove beyond all doubt that this toxic waste can rot the brain from the inside.

    It's money.

    The nationwide cash crunch has forced cities, towns, villages and counties from coast to coast to pinch every penny they can -- and many of them have found they can save big by pulling the plug on water fluoridation.

    The latest community to join the list is Pinellas County, Florida, which will save $205,000 next year alone by simply choosing to NOT poison its own residents.

    I call that a win-win.

    Money was also a motive in Mount Clemens, Michigan, which unanimously voted to end fluoridation -- saving them $40,000 a year, as I told my readers last month in The Douglass Report.

    They're not alone. Over the past few years, hundreds of communities have flushed their fluoridation programs -- and I don't care if the reason is money, science, or a late-night whisper from the man in the moon.

    ANY reason to end water fluoridation is a good one in my book, because exposure to this poison is scientifically proven to make kids dumber and turn adults into... well... just look around you and see what decades of this practice has done to society.

    Want more reasons? You know this stuff can discolor teeth -- even the U.S. government admits that -- but you might not realize that fluoride can actually weaken and break bone, and may even cause bone cancer.

    All that, and it's not even great at protecting teeth!

    One of the biggest studies ever found no difference in cavities between kids who got fluoridated water and kids who didn't -- and even the fluoride-pushing American Dental Association admits the benefit might be as low as 20 percent.

    If that's still not enough, consider this: China sells us as much fluoride as we're willing to buy... but they won't put a drop of it into their own water.

    Think they might know something we don't?

  2. Sweetener prevents cavities in children

    Sugar preventing tooth decay?

    It might sound like an oxymoron, but according to a recent study published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, the natural sweetener xylitol could be the key to winning the battle against tooth decay in young children.

    That's big news – especially for poorer parts of the country, where kids are twice as likely to develop cavities in their baby teeth. It's called baby bottle tooth decay or nursing cavities.

    The fact that xylitol is good for your teeth is nothing new. Plenty of studies have shown that chewing xylitol gum or sucking on xylitol lozenges can have a positive effect on permanent teeth. This is the first study to show that it can have the same promising benefits for baby teeth as well.

    This time around, however, the researchers evaluated a different form of the natural sweetener. They gave xylitol-containing syrup to a group of kids that were between 9 and 15 months old and found that just 8 grams per day in a twice daily topical oral syrup could prevent up to 70 percent of decayed teeth.

    The researchers concluded that "More research is needed to develop vehicles and strategies for optimal public health…"

    But why wait for more research?

    Xylitol itself is inexpensive, and using it has the potential to save people thousands of dollars in dental costs later on in life.

  3. The cheapest way to avoid the dentist

    The Academy of General Dentistry (AGC) recently announced that the use of "a properly positioned" straw can help to significantly minimize the risk of cavities and other oral health problems.
