Findings indicate fluoride can cause autisim, dyslexia and ADHD
Remember fluoride? It’s the adorable chemical that keeps your smile bright and white, the delightful additive to your town’s water supply that prevents tooth decay.
Not according to a new study which seems to indicate that fluoride is much more toxic than previously thought.
It has long been suspected that fluoride is not as benign as it has been presented to be by the American Dental Association and other groups who tout the benefits of adding it to our water without our approval.
But now a study published in the medical journal The Lancet indicates that fluoride could be a major cause of all kinds of neurodevelopmental disabilities, including autism, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments. The study originally called out a number of chemicals, including lead, methylmercury, polychlorinated biphenyls, arsenic, and toluene. But later, the authors added an addendum singling out fluoride as another culprit.
“In 2006, we did a systematic review and identified five industrial chemicals as developmental neurotoxicants: lead, methylmercury, polychlorinated biphenyls, arsenic, and toluene. Since 2006, epidemiological studies have documented six additional developmental neurotoxicants—manganese, fluoride, chlorpyrifos, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, and the polybrominated diphenyl ethers. We postulate that even more neurotoxicants remain undiscovered.”
Something to keep in mind as you scan that mind-numbing list of toxins is that of those listed there is only one that is deliberately set aside for human consumption. So if a list of known poisons has one on it that is added to our water deliberately, we might reasonably ask why.
As with most things in this modern world, if you follow the money you might find some answers.
Fluoride, in addition to allegedly protecting teeth is a byproduct in the smelting of aluminum and the manufacture of fertilizer. The history of its use in drinking water is fascinating read. The short version is it was the brainchild of people who worked for the aluminum manufacturer ALCOA, owned by Andrew Mellon. In 1930, Mellon, who was then serving as Treasury Secretary, which also put him in charge of the Public Health Service, directed researchers at the PHS to look into the effects of fluoridated water on teeth. Based on these studies, in 1939 Mellon proposed it be added to drinking water.
So the bottom line, as is usually the case, is the bottom line. Aluminum and fertilizer companies sell their waste product to the government and this industrial waste is dumped into your drinking water, all because a rich guy in the 1930s wanted a way to dispose of his factory’s waste–and get paid for it to boot.
With the recent linkage seen between fluoride and autism, ADHD, dyslexia and a host of other neuro-cognitive disorders, isn’t time for more testing? Isn’t it time to question the notion that the garbage that comes out of industrial factories is something we find fit to consume? And to force our kids to consume?
It’s time to fight back. First, stop drinking tap water. Buy bottled water or better yet invest in a de-ionizing or reverse-osmosis filter that removes fluoride and other toxins. In the wake of the disaster that the government has made with the water in Flint, Michigan, the time has never been better to make this investment for yourself and your family.
You can also find fluoride-free toothpaste, so manufacturers are starting to catch on that not everyone is satisfied with the government’s explanation for fluoride.
Finally, speak up! Contact your local government, attend meeting, write to your congressperson. Change never comes from the top. It’s the people who must lead the leaders. Start today!
