Do all of our loved ones & friends KNOW ?

* So, how many generations of lowered I.Q. will be enough to motivate getting TOXIC Fluoride out of public water supplies ?
The beginning of this year marked the 72nd anniversary of the biggest public snow job ever. And it’s one that is still haunting us today — water fluoridation.
To fluoridate the water supply — or not — has become one of the most contentious issues many communities are facing. Right now, locations as diverse as Durango, Colo., Battlefield, Mo. (aptly named!) and Meadville, Pa. are in the midst of heated debates over it.
In Spokane, Wash., a resident is buying up billboards to warn that fluoride is a health hazard and “public health quackery.” And on the other side of the world in Auckland, New Zealand, a group opposed to water fluoridation is asking for the Prime Minister’s chief scientist to have a debate with them.
But what if an impartial, scientific group were to take a good, long look at all of the research out there that we keep hearing “proves” just how beneficial putting fluoride in the water is in preventing cavities?
Well, one actually did just that.
And what it found should have ended this debate once and for all.
‘Nobody would even think about it’
A news anchor reporting on a local water fluoridation clash calls it a “tale of two opinions.”
But the “opinion” that water fluoridation will prevent kids, and even adults, from getting cavities is looking more like a big round of Swiss cheese than a “safe and effective” public health measure.
Two years ago, the Cochrane Collaboration, a widely-respected group of doctors and scientists who are said to conduct scientific reviews of the highest level, released a scathing report on this practice.
As the group discovered, after painstakingly poring over every single study out there, they found there is no evidence that dumping the chemical in our water can prevent tooth decay. None.
In fact, after pulling out all the past research that was available, some going back decades, they only found a total of three studies done since 1975 that were comprehensive and reliable enough to include in their research.
So how is it that whenever a fluoride debate comes up, we always hear about the thousands of studies proving how effective it is? That mysterious research must be written in invisible ink that only CDC officials can see!
As you can imagine, when this review was published, experts were shocked.
Trevor Sheldon, dean of the Hull York Medical School in the UK, said that he couldn’t believe “the low quality of the research” on water fluoridation. He added that if fluoridation were to be submitted to health agencies such as the FDA today, the research is so bad “nobody would even think about [approving] it.”
UMass scientist Thomas Zoeller said that the review is “pretty shocking,” and does not “support the addition of fluoride to drinking water.” Other experts were equally surprised to learn that the “evidence” to support the practice just doesn’t exist.
After a brief spate of publicity in 2015, however, the findings seemed to disappear faster than a melting snowflake.
Now, it looks like we’re back to the same old debate over fluoridating towns and cities all over the U.S., and once again we’re hearing about reams of research that supposedly prove it prevents tooth decay.
But as an eAlert reader, you know that the issue is much more than whether fluoridated water provides protection against cavities.
As we’ve been telling you for years, fluoride is a toxic chemical that can damage your thyroid, lower your child’s IQ, and up your risk of having a bone fracture and has even been linked to cancer — especially a rare form of bone cancer in young men.
But despite the serious health risks and the lack of any reason whatsoever to dump this poison into our water, the scam continues. Fluoride is even being added to some bottled waters!
If your water is fluoridated (which you can find out by calling your local municipal water authority), you’ll need a reverse osmosis filter to remove it.
And if someone tries to tell you about all that research proving how water fluoridation is saving our teeth, you can tell them that fable no longer holds water.
