dangers of fluoride

  1. Fluoride no help for thinning bones

    Bad to the bone!

    Fluoride... for bone health?

    I'd laugh if the idea weren't so irresponsible, because fluoride is about as good for your bone health as a loan shark after you've missed a payment.

    The science is so clear on the bone-crunching risks of fluoride that even plenty of mainstream docs won't go near this stuff anymore. But for those who haven't gotten the message, a new study confirms -- yet again -- that it's absolutely 100 percent ineffective for senior women suffering from osteopenia.

    That's a bone-thinning condition that can lead to breaks, fractures, and even the far more serious osteoporosis.

    In the new study, 180 postmenopausal women were hoodwinked into taking either one of three daily fluoride doses -- 2.5 mg, 5 mg, or 10 mg -- or, for the lucky ones, a placebo.

    One year later, the women who ingested this poison had zip to show for it. Tests on bone mineral density in the hip and lumbar spine and tests of overall bone mineral density found no differences at all between women given the toxic supplements and women given the placebo.

    None!

    Now, it's one thing to simply fail to protect bone. But like I said earlier, fluoride can actually snap 'em like twigs. In the new study, there were zero fractures in the placebo group -- but FIVE spread out among the fluoride groups.

    And fluoride can do more than just break your bones. It's been linked to bone cancer and about a billion other risks -- up to and including making people DUMB.

    Maybe that's why the authorities are so eager to dump it into your water.

    If there's fluoride in your own water, there are two steps you need to take right now. First, install a reverse osmosis filter, which can remove fluoride and all the other common contaminants -- including drugs, hormones, and chemical waste.

    And second, contact your elected officials and tell them under no uncertain terms that you want the fluoride OUT.

    I'm not done with bone health yet. Keep reading!

  2. Adding Fluoride to our Water Supplies

    Adding Fluoride to our Water Supplies

    Proof positive of fluoride's deadly decay

    You know the addition of toxic fluoride to our water
    supplies is one of my major hot-button issues. I've written
    about it frequently over the past two years in both the
    Daily Dose and in my newsletter. But hold onto your hat,
    because I'm about to expose to you some of the most damning
    evidence yet that water fluoridation is completely founded
    on false pretenses

    First, a little background: Although fluoride naturally
    occurs in most water supplies in varying amounts, we
    routinely add even more of this industrial toxin - which
    used to be used as a rat poison, by the way - to our
    municipal water supplies in the name of dental health.
    (Never mind the fact that the biggest comparative study ever
    conducted on fluoridation and tooth decay yielded no
    statistical difference in the rate of cavities between
    fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas.) What's really
    disturbing, though, is that there's a large body of
    virtually unreported evidence suggesting that fluoride
    actually DAMAGES teeth - like this shocking story from
    Montana:

    Yellowstone Park's majestic elk are dying before their time -
    and fluoride-damaged teeth are to blame!

    That's right: In certain areas of America's most beautiful
    national park, elk are expiring years sooner than they're
    supposed to because of the unusually high levels of
    naturally occurring fluoride in the water. According to an
    ecology professor from Montana State University, elk in
    these areas live only 65%-70% as long as elk just a short
    distance north, away from the geothermally active southern
    zones of the park which spout extreme amounts of fluoride.

    Why aren't these animals living to a ripe old age? Because
    this fluoride causes PREMATURE DETERIORATION OF THEIR TEETH -
    which leads to an inability to properly chew their forage.
    This in turn leads to starvation, disease, and an increased
    vulnerability to wolves and other predators due to weakness
    and malnutrition.

    And guess what? Too much fluoride will do the same to your
    teeth. You might not fall prey to a wolf because of it, but
    the point is the same: Fluoride doesn't do teeth any favors.
    So there's really no reason to add it to our water supplies,
    is there? Except maybe to help big industry dispose of
    millions of tons of toxic waste every year

    Yes, dentists and others may insist that a small amount of
    fluoride actually helps your teeth, but I've never seen any
    convincing evidence of this. But I HAVE learned about the
    effects of fluoride toxicity on human health and longevity.

    So do yourself a favor: Shut off your city water and dig a
    well or buy bottled water - or get yourself a good fluoride-
    eliminating water filter. If you want to look at the one I
    recommend, here's a link to more information.

    ***********************************************

    A place at the end of noisy street called: Earache Hotel

    Hospitals are the best place to recuperate after surgery or
    an illness, right? Any doctor (except this one) will tell
    you: When in doubt, stay overnight - or for the week. You'll
    be better taken care of, they'll say (at $1200 bucks a day,
    or so)

    You'll have ready access to all the medications you need,
    they'll assure you (at twelve dollars per aspirin, of
    course, if they don't mistakenly kill you with the WRONG
    pill - it happens more than you'd believe)

    You'll get more rest without the distractions and
    responsibilities of home, they'll whisper in your ear

    Well, not really. In fact, not at all. According to research
    published in a recent issue of the American Journal of
    Nursing, study volunteers reported that getting any amount
    of satisfying rest was nearly impossible in hospital beds,
    especially at night (who'd want some rest then, right?). At
    times, hospital noise levels peaked as high as 113 decibels -
    as loud as a rock concert

    Or a CHAIN SAW!

    The worst of it came at critical sleep periods, to At 11PM
    and 7AM, when shift changes caused unusual amounts of noise,
    bustle and chaos. The good news, though, is that the study
    yielded some ways to cut these noise levels dramatically -
    techniques like relocating conference rooms, padding noisy
    surfaces, and simply closing doors. These measures reduced
    peak noise levels to a mere 86 decibels

    Or only about as loud as a gas-powered lawn mower.

    My advice? No matter what you're in the hospital for, get
    yourself home as fast as is safe and feasible. The best
    place to truly rest and recuperate is in your own bed,
    surrounded by conscientious (and quiet) loved ones.
