Fluoride, the Only Drug Intentionally Added to Your Tap Water

By Michael Connett

Following the recent water crisis in Flint, it's no wonder that the U.S. public has begun to question exactly how safe our drinking water actually is. What was once taken for granted — the idea of safe, pure, drinkable water for everyone — is now in serious question.
In addition to the continuing problems with lead contamination, it has come to light in recent years that public water supplies are now contaminated with trace levels of pharmaceutical drugs, including oral contraceptives and mood stabilizers.
These drugs end up in our water inadvertently; however, there's one pharmaceutical that is intentionally added to our tap water: Fluoride.

Fluoride Is a Neurotoxic, Endocrine Disrupting Drug

Fluoride is an endocrine disruptingneurotoxic, and bone-weakening substance that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defines as a drug when used to prevent disease, because unlike the minerals we need (e.g. calcium), humans have no known physiological requirement for fluoride.
Sodium fluoride, long known as an effective roach poison, is added to tablets and drops (i.e., "fluoride supplements") for the purpose of preventing tooth decay.
But because of fluoride's toxicity, you cannot purchase fluoride "supplements" over-the-counter; they can only be dispensed by prescription under the supervision of a doctor. In short, sodium fluoride is not a nutritional "supplement;" it is a prescription drug, and a dangerous one.
Although fluoride drugs have been prescribed for over 50 years, the FDA recently announced that marketing fluoride drops and tablets for cavity prevention violates federal law, because FDA has never approved these products as either safe or effective.
FDA made this stunning declaration in a Warning Letter, in which the Agency called on a manufacturer to immediately cease selling fluoride drops and tablets. Removing harmful fluoride drugs from the market will protect the health of millions of children, but we also need to address the big elephant in the room: water fluoridation.
With water fluoridation, cities and towns can add almost the same dose of fluoride contained in prescription fluoride drops and tablets to each glass a toddler drinks — with no supervision of a health professional, and without the informed consent of the patient.
