CONTROVERSY ABOUT FLUORIDE (SODIUM FLUORIDE IS USED AS RAT POISON)
Scientific Facts on the Biological Effects of Fluorides
Since April 7. 1997 the FDA has had toothpaste containing Fluoride and Sodium Laurel Sulfate include
the warning “Keep out of the reach of children under six. If more than a pea size amount is swallowed
contact your poison control center immediately.”
Unfortunately some manufacturers put it on the box that you throw away before using.
Here is some documentation on the adverse
effects of FLUORIDE
1. Fluoride exposure disrupts the synthesis of
collagen and leads to the breakdown of collagen
in bone, tendon, muscle, skins, cartilage,
lungs, kidney and trachea.

2. Fluoride stimulates granule formation and
oxygen consumption in white blood cells, but
inhibits these processes when the white blood
cell is challenged by a foreign agent in the

Iodination Reaction Induced by Fluoride:
Degranulation and Metabolic Activation,”
Blood, Vol. 57, pp. 913-921 (1981).
3. Fluoride depletes the energy reserves and the
ability of white blood cells to properly destroy
foreign agents by the process of
little as 0.2 ppm
production in resting white blood cells,
phagocytosis. Even micro-molar amounts of
fluoride, below 1 ppm,
may seriously depress the ability of white blood
cells to destroy pathogenic agents.

The contents of a family
size tube of fluoridated toothpaste is
enough to kill a 25 pound child.
In 1991, the Akron (Ohio) Regional Poison Center reported that “death has been
reported following ingestion of 16mg/kg of
fluoride. Only 1/10 of an ounce of fluoride
could kill a 100 pound adult. According to the
Center, “fluoride toothpaste contains up to
1mg/gram of fluoride.” Even Proctor and Gamble,
the makers of Crest, acknowledge that a
family-sized tube “theoretically contains enough
fluoride to kill a small child.”
Fluorides have been used to modify behavior and
mood of human beings. It is a little known fact
that fluoride compounds were added to the
drinking water of prisoners to keep them docile
and inhibit questioning of authority, both in
Nazi prison camps in World War II and in the
Soviet gulags in Siberia.
Fluorides are medically categorized as
protoplasmic poisons, which is why they are used
to kill rodents.
The September 18, 1943 issue of the Journal of
the American Medical Association, states, “fluorides
are general protoplasmic poisons, changing the
permeability of the cell membrane by inhibiting
certain enzymes. The exact mechanisms of such
actions are obscure.”
Fluoride consumption by human beings increases
the general cancer death rate.
In 1975 Dr. John
Yiamouyiannis published a preliminary
survey which showed that people in fluoridated
areas have a higher cancer death rate than those
in non-fluoridated areas. The National Cancer
Institute attempted to refute the studies. Later
in 1975 Yiamouyiannis
joined with Dr. Dean Burk, chief chemist of the
National Cancer Institute (1939-1974) in
performing other studies which were then
included in the Congressional Record by
Congressman Delaney, who was the original author
of the Delaney Amendment, which prohibited the
addition of cancer-causing substances to food
used for human consumption. Both reports
confirmed the existence of a link between
fluoridation and cancer. (Note: Obviously Dr.
Burk felt free to agree with scientific truth
only after his tenure at National Cancer
Institute ended, since his job depended on
towing the party line).
Fluorides have little or no effect on decay
prevention in humans.
In 1990 Dr. John Colquhoun was forced into early
retirement in New Zealand after he conducted a
study on 60,000 school children and found no
difference in tooth decay between fluoridated
areas. He additionally found that a substantial
number of children in fluoridated areas suffered
from dental fluorosis.
He made the study public. There is no
scientific data that shows that fluoride mouth
rinses and tablets are safe for human use.
In 1989 a study by
Hildebolt, et al. on 6,000 school
children contradicted any alleged benefit from
the use of sodium fluorides. A 1990 study by Dr.
on 39,000 school children contradicted any
alleged benefits from the use of sodium
fluorides. In 1992 Michael
Perrone, a legislative assistant in New Jersey, contacted the
FDA requesting all information regarding the
safety and effectiveness of fluoride tablets and
drops. After 6 months of stalling, the FDA
admitted they had no data to show that fluoride
tablets or drops were either safe or effective.
They informed Perrone
that they will “probably have to pull the
tablets and drops off the market.”
The fact that fluoride toothpastes and school
based mouth rinses are packaged in aluminum
accentuates the effect on the body.
In 1976, Dr. D. Allman
and coworkers from Indiana University School of
Medicine fed animals 1 part-per-million (ppm)
fluoride and found that in the presence of
aluminum, in a concentration as small as 20
parts per billion, fluoride is able to cause an
even larger increase in cyclic AMP levels.
Cyclic AMP inhibits the migration rate of white
blood cells, as well as the ability of the white
blood cell to destroy pathogenic
disease-causing) organisms. Reference: Journal
of Dental Research, Vol. 55, Sup B, p. 523,
1976, “Effect of Inorganic Fluoride Salts on
Urine and Tissue Cyclic AMP Concentration in
Vivo”. (Note: It is no small accident that
toothpaste tubes containing fluoride are often
made of aluminum)

fraud of this century”
