You will often hear, “Melbourne has some of the best drinking water”. And it has fluoride added. In fact, the city is legally required to add fluoride to Melbourne’s water under the Health (Fluoridation) Act 1973. This is because major studies have proved fluoridation safety and effectiveness with regard to dental health, and this practice is supported by the WHO, Australian Dental Association, Australian Medical Association, etc.
Fluoride is GOOD for you. And here is a video to prove it.
1901 – Colorado Springs, Colorado
When a young dental school graduate, Frederick McKay, opened a dental practice in Colorado Springs, he discovered scores of people with grotesque brown stains on their teeth. In 1909 renowned dental researcher Dr. G.V. Black arrived in Colorado Springs to collaborate on the mysterious ailment. They found that teeth afflicted by Colorado Brown Stain were surprisingly and inexplicably resistant to decay by the fluorosis in the water.
And in 1945, Grand Rapids became the first city in the world to fluoridate its drinking water. They monitored the rate of tooth decay among Grand Rapids’ almost 30,000 schoolchildren and, after just 11 years, announced an amazing finding: Children born after fluoride was added to the water supply dropped more than 60 percent.
2015 – Snowmass, Colorado
So why has Snowmass (part of Aspen in Colorado) Stopped Water Fluoridation?
“Only recently have the studies been done on the effects of fluoride beyond your teeth,” board member (of Snowmass Council) Dave Dawson said. “People can fluoridate if they wish. I don’t see it as our business to medicate the public.” Board members Michael Shore and Willard Humphrey said they agreed, but board President Joe Farrell, who said he has many dentists in his family, did not.
A groundbreaking study on water fluoridation concluded that there was zero relationship between water fluoridation and cavity prevention. Thomas Zoeller, a scientist at UMass-Amherst, who played a role in the study, breaks it down:
“I had assumed because of everything I’d heard that water fluoridation reduces cavities but I was completely amazed by the lack of evidence,” he says. “My prior view was completely reversed.”
Fluoride is a waste by-product of the fertilizer and aluminum industry.
USAF Major George R. Jordan testified (before Un-American Activity committees of Congress in the 1950’s) that the Soviets openly admitted to “Using the fluoride in the water supplies in their concentration camps, to make the prisoners stupid, docile, and subservient.” (I cannot find reliable sources about Nazi prison camps used fluoride, though many claim it so, and that this knowledge was passed onto the CIA)
Much of western Europe has rejected fluoridated water due to the known health risks.
The American Dental Association (ADA) advised parents (Nov 2006) to avoid giving babies fluoridated water.
The researchers in a Harvard study, “Impact of fluoride on neurological development in children“, advise further research:
In a meta-analysis, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang for the first time combined 27 studies and found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children. Based on the findings, the authors say that this risk should not be ignored, and that more research on fluoride’s impact on the developing brain is warranted.
But, of course, other researchers say fluoride has no relation to IQ.
And I’m sure the following graph has NO relation to fluoride.
But, it has been reported that IQ is lowered by the consumption junk food. So, in the meantime – just keep on drinking that good ol’ fluoride into your system.
PS – The Rockefeller connection (?)
In 1914 miners in southern Colorado went on strike against the powerful Colorado Fuel & Iron Corporation (CF&I) – owned by the Rockefeller family and Standard Oil. When the evictions failed to end the strike, it is alleged the Rockefeller interests hired detectives to attack the tent colonies – resulting in the “Ludlow Massacre”.
The Rockefellers decided that a new approach was needed between the workers and the management and, in 1916, extended the medical welfare program to include a comprehensive dental program. CF&I thus became the first industrial organization to add dental care to the benefits for workers. CF&I was also cooperative with regard to McKay´s “mottled teeth” studies, and Cambier, the chemist whose water analyses are cited in several of McKay´s papers, was with CF&I at Pueblo.
