Fluoride Updates

EPA scientists, medical experts fired for opposing water fluoridation

Read more:
Politics, not science, is what continues to drive the water fluoridation agenda today, and it was always the impetus behind the original passage of corrupt water fluoridation guidelines established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) more than 50 years ago. But many EPA scientists, it turns out, as well as other medical and scientific experts, have bravely come out in opposition to water fluoridation over the years, a move that for many cost them their jobs and careers...

Epa Muddies Water Over Fluoride Limit

The Environmental Protection Agency has stirred the hornet`s nest of fluoridation by seeking to double the maximum allowable amount of the mineral in the nation`s water supply--a move that is drawing sharp criticism as a possible health hazard.

``I don`t think the law really allows them to do this,`` says Jackie Warren, a lawyer with the New York-based Natural Resources Defense Council, which plans to sue the EPA to stop the change. ``They`re changing the standard for reasons that have nothing to do with science.``

Prominent Toxicologist Opposes Fluoridation

What effect does water fluoridation have on a normal thyroid gland or euthyroid?

March 8, 2013 - PubMed states:

"Fluoride was used as a drug to treat hyperthyroidism because it reduces thyroid activity quite effectively. This is due to the ability of fluoride to mimic the action of thyrotropin (TSH). Excess fluoride correlates with the other thyroid-related issues such as iodine deficiency. Fluorine and iodine, both being members of the halogen group of atoms, have an antagonistic relationship. When there is excess of fluoride in the body it can interfere with the function of the thyroid gland. Thus, fluoride has been linked to thyroid problems."

The prior therapeutic use of Fluoride to reduce thyroid hormone levels in cases of thyrotoxicosis is well documented (Goldemberg, (1926, 1930, 1932); May (1935, 1937); Orlowski (1932) and Galletti and G. Joyet, (1958).

Fluoridation--Is this why the U.S. leads in osteoporosis ?
February 23, 2013

...Because I knew a biologist in the 1960s who wrote his doctoral dissertation on fluoridation, I have been aware of some of the issues with fluoride for 45 years...The late Dr. John Lee, MD, who gained fame by writing about bioidentical hormones, also wrote about fluoride. His articles about fluoridation and osteoporosis can be found here: I suggest you paste them into WORD and double space them to make them easier to read...Fluoridation may be one reason why we are seeing so many younger people with osteoporosis.
