Trained as a chemist, specializing in environmental chemistry, Dr. Paul Connett is known throughout the world as a leader in the movement against water fluoridation because of his knowledge base.
He is truly dedicated to the cause of ending water fluoridation, and heads up an organization called the Fluoride Action Network or www.fluoridealert.org that contains a wealth of information.
In addition, his book, The Case Against Fluoride, is scheduled for release in late September, but is available for pre-order.
In this timely and important book, Connett and his two co-authors, Beck and Micklem, take a new look at the science behind water fluoridation and argue that just because the medical establishment endorses a public health measure, that doesn't mean it's safe.
In the case of water fluoridation, the chemicals used to fluoridate the water that more than 180 million people drink each day are not pharmaceutical grade, but rather hazardous waste products of the phosphate fertilizer industry; it is illegal to dump these into rivers and lakes or release the parent gases into the atmosphere.
In addition, water fluoridation is a prime example of one of the worst medical practices possible – forced medication with no control over the dose or who gets it.
Amazingly, the United States is only one of eight countries in the entire developed world that fluoridates more than 50 percent of its water supply. (The other seven are: Australia, Colombia, Ireland, Israel, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore.)
In Europe, Ireland is the only country that fluoridates more than 50 percent of its drinking water, and England fluoridates 10 percent.
Most of mainland Europe is not fluoridated, and yet, according to World Health Organization data, their teeth are just as good, if not better than Americans'.
One of the central challenges in this debate is that the United States claim to have one of the most advanced scientific countries in the world, yet we're still engaging in a practice that is questionable at best, and extremely harmful at worst.-Dr. Joseph Mercola
A better question is: why is water in the fluoride? Several thousand more people each year drown than die of fluoride. There's even more people who drink too much water and experience water intoxication, or hyper-hydration (I wish I was making this up).ReplyDelete
Yes, you can drink too much water, but what's that got to do with the issue of adding fluoride to tap water? (Answer: nothing).ReplyDelete
I'm was just livening up an alarmist post. Should fluoride and the unmentioned chlorine be added to water? Probably not. Is it a public health nightmare that its happening? No. Would I stop adding it? Yes. Do I drink tap water? No, except accidentally in the shower... oh my god, the fluoride is literally brainwashing me as I clean!ReplyDelete

Something is doing it, that's for sure.
Yeah, all these damn books I read. If only I had more time to listen to conservative talk radio, I would be enlightened.ReplyDelete
