(NaturalNews) A recent Chinese study concluded that low dose sodium fluoride in drinking water diminishes IQ, especially among children. This is the twenty-fourth such international study with the same conclusion. Sodium fluoride has also been linked to reduced fertility and lower sperm counts.
Other health issues arise from the basic function of sodium fluoride's ability to block thyroid production. It was once used to inhibit hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid). So if your thyroid is normal, it will be reduced to hypothyroidism (under-active thyroid), which leads to a plethora of health problems.
Sodium fluoride is accumulated and stored by bone matter, displacing calcium and weakening bones. The pineal gland sucks up even more of the stuff that is being put in 70% of the USA water supply while independent scientific research and public protest is disregarded.
The Health Issues
There's more on the fluoridated pineal gland in the Natural News article "A Fluoride Free Pineal Gland ..." (source below). Here are a few of the health issues from drinking fluoridated water:
*Thyroid Disruption - affecting the complete endocrine system and leading to obesity and diabetes *Neurological - diminished IQ and inability to focus (ADD), lethargy, weariness, possibly fibromyalgia. *Melatonin Disruption - sleep disorders, increased aging, lower immunity to cancer. *Alzheimer's Disease *Pineal Gland - calcification of this gland located in the middle of the brain. *Cancer
Types of Fluorides
Calcium fluoride is in several ground water sources, especially wells. The worst it can do is cause tooth enamel or bone damage if consumed daily over the long term. Pharmaceutical grade sodium fluoride is meant to be applied topically to teeth as a dental procedure. But if swallowed or otherwise ingested, it is extremely toxic.
But the most pernicious of all sodium fluorides is either fluorosilicate acid or sodium silicofluoride. These are the waste products of industry, originally from the nuclear and aluminum industries, but now mostly from the phosphate fertilizer industry.
The gases emitted from phosphate fertilizer processing plants are so toxic that nearby crops were destroyed by the emissions and serious health problems rose among nearby residents. So the EPA forced the processing plants to use scrubbers in their stacks to clean the exhaust.
That solved the toxic emission problems locally while creating an expensive toxic waste disposal problem. How toxic is this scrubbed stuff? A recent spill from a fluorosilicate container in Illinois had to be contained by workers wearing the same type of protective gear worn near the damaged reactors in Fukushima.
Deceptive PR campaigns and the American Dental Association's urging of fluoridation as the panacea for tooth decay created a profitable side industry: Selling phosphate toxic sludge as sodium fluoride for community water supplies. Fluoridated water proponents argue that low doses are safe while ignoring how these daily doses deposit and accumulate in our bones and organs.
Avoiding Sodium Fluoride
Even if not fluoridated, tap water contains chlorine compounds that tend to leach lead. This lead leaching gets with the sodium fluoride added. It has been declared that there is no safe level of lead in our bodies.
Don't drink tap water that has not gone through reverse osmosis, at least. Avoid commercial sodas and juices. Most food stores contain reverse osmosis purifiers that you can use to load large jugs cheaply. There are household purifiers available as well.
Reverse osmosis removes over 85% of sodium fluoride from water, but some of the good minerals are removed as well. Add some sea salt or mineral powder to compensate. Do this to stay healthy and join the growing resistance against forced toxic medication via our water supplies.
