Why is Fluoride in our water?

April 20th, 2010

Are you being poisoned by Fluoride in your water?

For years there have been snippets of information coming out about the dangers of Fluoride in our water supply. The authorities dismiss these claims every time and insist “everything is perfectly safe.”

Danger: Flouride Toxic Poison photoThe latest information however refutes all this and is of vital importance to every one – particularly every mother of a growing child, because it has now been proven by years and years of research that Fluoride is highly dangerous and the missing link in birth defects and mental retardation in young children, as well as the epidemic of Alzheimer’s.

Professor A.K. Susheela, PhD., who has researched fluoride for more than 20 years and is one of the world’s leading researchers and experts on Fluoride in our water supply, says long-term studies show fluoride is a serious threat to public health.

With more than 80 scientific studies published in Western and Indian Journals to her credit, Dr. Susheela says that fluoride not only has been linked to increased rates of stillbirth and miscarriages among populations exposed to fluoride in water, but fluoride also poses a serious risk of birth abnormalities including mental retardation.

Dr. Susheela says the studies have shown that fluoride destroys:

  • muscle structure and muscle function
  • muscle energy
  • bone and teeth
  • red blood cells and blood vessels
  • the lining of the stomach and intestine


“We now have ample scientific evidence to substantiate the fact that ingestion of fluoride prevents biosynthesis of hemoglobin leading to anemia in human beings. We have studied this problem in pregnant mothers. The danger of anemia in pregnancy is that it would lead to abnormalities in the development of the embryo/fetus,’’ says Dr Susheela.

Studies also indicate it harms fetuses carried by pregnant women and may cause abortions and stillbirths. Dr. Susheela says results of reducing fluoride in water include reduced abortions and stillbirths, as fluoride is known to induce calcification of blood vessels of the fetus.

“It has been shown that when fluoride-contaminated water (>1.0 mg/L) and dental products are consumed or used by pregnant mothers, it destroys the thyroid gland of the embryo/fetus,’’ says Dr Susheela.

“When children with dental fluorosis were investigated, there were severe derangements in the thyroid hormone levels T3 (Triiodothyronine) and T4 (Tetraiodothyronine) along with Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). Such children suffer from sub-clinical hypothyroidism, T3 toxicosis, low T3 syndrome, primary hypothyroidism and disturbed hormone conversion. Thyroid hormone defects results in mental retardation (low IQ) in children, deaf mutism, knock-knee, bow-leg and cretinism.”

The results of the studies on women ingesting fluoride were reported at the 27th Conference of the International Society for Fluoride Research held in Beijing China.

The evidences we have provided on the harmful effects of fluoride on human health, unequivocally prove the point that fluoride is “disease-causing and not disease preventing.”

“Our scientific publications would not only stand the test of time but also before any judiciary in any part of the world, as it is based on biomedical research of highest standards,’’ says Dr Susheela. “With a high degree of scientific accuracy and certainty, I conclude that artificial fluoridation of drinking water is an ineffective means of improving dental health, and is in fact quite dangerous to those forced to consume it.

In regard to claims by health authorities that water fluoridation strengthens teeth surfaces and prevents dental caries (cavities), Dr. Susheela’s research indicates the opposite. The findings emerging from the studies on both tooth and bone have made significant contributions to negate the belief that fluoride is good for teeth. Instead, fluoride “does more damage to teeth”.

India launched a Technology Mission on “Safe Drinking Water” in 1986, now re-designated Rajiv Gandhi National Drinking Water Mission after the late Prime Minister, in which every drinking water source in the rural sector is checked for water quality, especially for fluoride.

“People are keen to defluoridate the water due to gastrointestinal problems and are adopting indigenous technology for obtaining potable (defluoridated) water. Substantial scientific evidence has emerged in recent years from studies conducted on human subjects and hospital patients and those residing in areas/regions/villages where fluoride content ranges in drinking water from 0.5 ppm to 38.5 ppm,’’ said Dr Susheela. The findings came after 20 years of follow-up studies that have now been concluded.

California Dentists Speak Out Against Fluoride – White Spotted Teeth an Epidemic

Why isn’t this front-page, headline news?!

The California Dental Association has at last gotten off its backside and come out saying: “No Fluoridated Water for Infants!” They join a growing list of researchers, dental and health organizations strongly advising against regularly mixing infant formula with fluoridated water to avoid discoloring babies’ developing teeth.

Fluoride is neither a nutrient nor required for healthy teeth, yet Fluoride chemicals are added to many public water supplies and some bottled water in a failed attempt to reduce tooth decay.

” …mixing powdered or liquid infant formula concentrate with fluoridated water on a regular basis for infants primarily fed in this way may increase the chance of a child’s developing enamel fluorosis.”

In March 2006, the National Research Council cautioned that infants can fluoride-overdose via reconstituted baby formula. The American Dental Association (ADA) passed this information on to its members in a November 2006 e-gram. But nothing was done about it and nothing was reported in the mainstream media once again!

Flouride Spotted Teeth photo
National data (1986–-1987) shows dental fluorosis is a huge U.S. problem with 62 percent of 5-17 year-olds afflicted with white spotted, yellow, brown and/or pitted teeth. Data from 1999-2000 shows fluorosis has increased further since then.

The ADA defines mild fluorosis as “white spotted teeth affecting about 25% to 50% of tooth surfaces”, moderate fluorosis as “All tooth surfaces affected; marked wear on biting surfaces; brown stain may be present” and severe fluorosis as “All tooth surfaces affected; discrete or confluent pitting; brown stain present”.

The Food and Drug Administration ruled that fluoridated bottled water cannot be marketed as a decay preventive, but once again this went totally unreported and still occurs on a major scale.

Why do we add Fluoride to Water Anyway? According to the Fluoride Information Network,

“we add fluoride to a community’s water supply because the natural fluoride in the water is not at the optimal level to prevent tooth decay and so we have to adjust it for the greatest benefit to all.”

In the United States, approximately 145 million people in more than 10,000 communities drink fluoridated water, “for its benefits”. But medical research says otherwise. Sodium fluoride is NOT an essential nutrient for maintenance of life and has no defined deficiencies.

  • Fluoridated water on the tooth surface does not prevent tooth decay. It may delay tooth decay.
  • Fluoride strengthens the outer part of the bone, but it has been show to make the inside porous and weak.
  • Fluoride has been shown to adversely effect the brain function and behavior.
  • Fluoride is NOT essential to human physiology.

Fluoride does not not prevent cavities, but “may” slow the rate of development when applied topically. Many countries in Europe have experienced substantial decline in cavities after ceasing to add fluoride to their water supply. Finland and Germany tooth decay rates remained stable or continued to decline after water fluoridation was halted.

Does Fluoride contribute to Alzheimer’s?
For the past 20 years, reports have been published on fluoride’s effect on the brain. According to just published April 2010 issue of the Journal of Alzheimers Disease, there is a possible connection between Aluminum and Fluoride that impairs cognitive function, especially in the elderly. Toothpastes with fluoride are commonly dispensed from an aluminum tube.

Much of the initial research on the effects of fluorides on human physiology was done by the Mellon Institute, under contract with major corporations that produce fluoride. Because of their “privacy” policies, Mellon does not share their research with the general public (except with express permission of those companies who contract with it). However, there are literally thousands of scientific studies which list physiological effects of fluorides.

The bottom line:

There are NO credible scientific studies which demonstrate that fluorides are safe to ingest.
