UK Against Fluoridation

Mass fluoridation unleashing dozens of health problems

Don’t drink the water
I nearly fell off my chair a couple years ago when the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention named fluoridation one of our country’s greatest public health achievements.
Sure. It’s right up there with leeches and giving people a shot of whisky before surgery.
The fact is, water fluoridation may be one of the most dangerous mass medication experiments in world history. And the damage may be worse than we’d imagined.
You see, British researchers recently studied the health records from thousands of patients across the country. And they found that people in communities that fluoridate their water were a whopping 30 percent more likely to suffer from thyroid disease — specifically hypothyroidism or underactive thyroid.
That’s not necessarily a surprise. We’ve known for years that fluoride suppresses several enzymes vital to thyroid function.
But it’s a big problem, because your thyroid is like a control center for your body’s organs. In fact, poor thyroid function has been linked to:
  • Uncontrollable weight gain,
  • Memory problems,
  • High cholesterol,
  • Blood pressure swings,
  • Joint and muscle pain,
  • Depression,
  • Anxiety and mood swings,
  • Sensitivity to cold and,
  • Exhaustion.
And you can bet that what they found in the UK is just the tip of the iceberg.
Across the pond, only 10 percent of people receive fluoridated water. Here, it’s 72 percent of the population.
So what about all that talk about how great fluoride is for your teeth? Well, a study published years ago in Environmental Health Perspectives found that fluoride actually interferes with the natural production of tooth enamel.
In fact, the U.S. has some of the highest rates of dental fluorosis in the industrialized world. That’s a pitting of your teeth that’s caused by… you guessed it… too much fluoride exposure.
Now it used to be that the easiest way to remove fluoride from your water was to buy a reverse osmosis system for your sink, which can cost hundreds of dollars. But now you can buy pitchers and filters with activated alumina for less than $50.
And that’s an investment worth making. Because the longer we keep swallowing Uncle Sam’s lies about fluoride, the better chance we could all end up in hot water.
