WATER FLUORIDATION IS NOT EFFECTIVE
Water Fluoridation is Mass MedicationANY chemical substance used to prevent or cure disease such as dental caries is a medicine by definition. All medicines prescribed by doctors have a specific dosage based on the nature of the problem, age, gender, existing medical conditions, treatment and consent of the patient.
MASS MEDICATION OF FLUORIDE IS A VIOLATION OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.
Fluoride DosageWater fluoridation is forced mass medication with an uncontrolled dose. Where intake is not controlled as for fluoride in drinking water, there needs to be a greater margin of safety between "optimal" and toxic levels. Fluoride is classified as a Schedule 7 poison - no such safety margin exists.
In Chapter 8: Effects on the Endocrine System in Fluoride in Drinking Water: A Scientific Review of EPA's Standards (2006) produced by the NATIONAL RESEARCH COUNCIL of the NATIONAL ACADEMIES in USA that states the major endocrine effects of fluoride exposures reported in humans include elevated TSH with altered concentrations of T3 and T4 - HYPOTHYROIDISM. Furthermore, they show that the fluoride dosage that causes these effects will be reached by persons with average exposure of fluoride at concentrations found in drinking water.
Here is are excerpts from the summary:
"The major endocrine effects of fluoride exposures reported in humans include elevated TSH with altered concentrations of T3 and T4, increased calcitonin activity, increased PTH activity, secondary hyperparathyroidism, impaired glucose tolerance, and possible effects on timing of sexual maturity; similar effects have been reported in experimental animals. " Table 8-2 shows that several of the effects are associated with average or typical fluoride intakes of 0.05-0.1 mg/kg/day (0.03 with iodine deficiency), others with intakes of 0.15 mg/kg/day or higher. Chapter 2 will show that the 0.03-0.1 mg/kg/day range will be reached by persons with average exposures at fluoride concentrations of 1-4 mg/L in drinking water, especially the children. The highest intakes (>0.1 mg/kg/d) will be reached by some individuals with high water intakes at 1 mg/L and by many or most individuals with high water intakes at 4 mg/L, as well as by young children with average exposures at 2 or 4 mg/L.
Most of the studies cited in this chapter were designed to ascertain whether certain effects occurred ... Thus, individual responses could occur at lower or higher exposures than those listed.
FLUORIDE IS NOT SAFE
Fluoride is NOT SAFE nor is it effective. It is not right to force fluoride, a non-essential mineral, upon people when so many suffer from the adverse health effects caused by it and where so many want the choice. We live in a democracy and we deserve to have the choice as to what medication we take.
