December 18, 2012 journal, fluoride in water and food causes cancer according to this and other reports, I believe it is true. Makers of poisonous aluminum fluoride are buying their way into every city water supply America and Europe and defying their fatal results. When will America wake-up to the fluoride lie that any 5th grader can figure out as a lie. I saw the worst teeth in Ireland where they have had fluoride even longer than we have. The Corporate monsters are out to kill us all with their racketeering profits made on lies. Truth is scarce in our country coming second to profits for Congress and the undertakers. I quote this article from the Internet entitled 10,000 have died from fluoride in our water. Why in the world would anyone put the poisonous byproduct of aluminum manufacturing into kids drinking water, toothpaste and even baby food? The answer is plain old greed. These profiteers are going to hell because they are not honest and not even American. " Water fluoridation is a highly controversial topic, with many individuals voicing massive concern over the practice. In contrast, some stick to the concept that there isn't any association between fluoride and any real negative effects. Fluoride, however, is indeed a toxic substance, and has been tied with numerous health complications in well-establish-ed research. Fluoride can be found in many water supplies, toothpaste, and even food at alarming levels. While it may sound shocking to many, some research is even drawing a close connection between fluoride and an increased cancer risk. The Dangers of Fluroide One paper entitled Fluoride-A Modern Toxic Waste says the following: Yiamouyiannis documents research showing that fluoride increases the tumor growth rate by 25% at only 1 ppm, produces melanotic tumors, transforms normal cells into cancer cells and increases the carcinogenesis of other chemicals. For the original references to these studies, refer to Yiamouyiannis' pamphlet, Lifesavers Guide to Fluoridation. In 1977, it was shown that fluoridation caused about 10,000 c Read more: Cancer deaths in epidemiological studies by Dr. Dean Burk, former head of the Cytochemistry Section at the National Cancer Institute and Yiamouyiannis. Despite the findings occurring in 1977, they were not reluctantly released until 1989. After analyzing the study results in rats, it was found that animals who drank fluoridated water: Showed an increase in tumors and cancers in oral squamous cells. Developed a rare form of bone cancer called osteosarcoma. Showed an increased in thyroid follicular cell tumors. Developed a rare form of liver cancer known as hepatocholangiocarcinoma Read more: Other research resurfaced by Dr. Dean Burk, former chief of cytochemistry at the National Cancer Institute for 30 years, also shows that fluoride increases the cancer death rate. Dr Burk refers to a study conducted which compares the 10 largest U.S. cities with fluoridation and the 10 largest without. What researchers found was that following fluoridation, deaths from cancer went up immediately- in as little as a year. To reduce fluoride levels to a the greatest degree, activists must demand that the government stop fluoridating the water supplies. Water fluoridation has not only been linked to an increased cancer risk, but a decreased IQ in children. In fact, the findings forced the government to call for lower fluoridation levels nationwide. Until water fluoridation comes to a halt, the easiest way to reduce fluoride exposure is to invest in a reverse osmosis water filtration system. Drinking distilled water for 3-6 months may also reduce the soft tissue fluoride" "And fluoride does not even effectively prevent cavities."

A baby being fed formula receives approximately 175 times more fluoride than a breast-fed infant There is not a single process in your body that requires fluoride A multi-million dollar U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) -funded study found no relation between tooth decay and the amount of fluoride ingested by children Water fluoridation cannot prevent the oral health crises that results from inadequate nutrition and lack of access to dental care Water fluoridation is a violation of your individual right to informed consent to medication Forty-one percent of all American children aged 12-15 are now impacted by dental fluorosis (damage to the enamel). The chemicals used to fluoridate water supplies are largely hazardous by-products of the fertilizer industry and have never been required to undergo randomized clinical trials for safety or effectiveness by any regulatory agency in the world The U.S. FDA classifies fluoride as an "unapproved drug" Ingesting fluoride has been found to damage soft tissues (brain, kidneys, and endocrine system), as well as teeth (dental fluorosis) and bones (skeletal fluorosis). There are also 24 studies demonstrating a strong relationship between fairly modest exposure to fluoride and reduced IQ in children Fluoridation discriminates against those with low incomes. People on low incomes are least able to afford avoidance measures, such as reverse osmosis filters or bottled water."
