A Kansas pediatrician and his group Wichitans For Healthy Teeth are completely clueless to the dangers of water fluoridation as they are making a major push to rally people behind them in their quest for fluoridated water.
The city of Wichita currently doesn’t add this toxic substance to their water and Dr. Larry Hund has the gall to say if they only fluoridate the water the “people” will save $4.5 million a year in dental work.
That’s funny because this group’s majority backers are dentists who make money from performing dental work.
Example of Misinformation Concerning Water Fluoridation
In a statement to the media Dr. Hund specifically targets anyone who disagrees as using “junk science.”
“Wichita City Council members have been receiving telephone calls from anti-fluoridation activists from out of state. Some opponents believe fluoride harms peoples’ IQs, damages bones and causes a dental condition called fluorosis, which is caused by higher-than-recommended levels of fluoride.
Dr. Hund disagrees with the detractors.
“They’re using a lot of what we call junk science,” Dr. Hund said. “They’re using a lot of unproven statements. They’re twisting statements around.” read more
Their group goes on to misinform the Wichita public on their website saying such foolish things such as fluoride added in the water is only a mineral, ingesting fluoride is the best way to protect everyone’s teeth from decay, fluoride is good for small children and babies, swallowing fluoride toothpaste has no danger, fluoride doesn’t reduce IQ and that fluoride doesn’t come from the fertilizer industry.
They don’t provide any evidence to back this up. They are just using anti-fluoridation facts and reversing them.
Real Facts About The Dangers of Water Fluoridation
Retired neurosurgeon, author, lecturer and educator Dr. Russell L. Blaylock is highly respected and has no conflict of interest that most pro-fluoridation doctors and dentists have.
He’s not associated with the ADA, CDC or WHO. He is a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association (JANA), and the author of three books on excitotoxicity.
He has a published paper about fluoride neurotoxicity in which he says fluoride produces neuronal destruction.
In the introduction alone he says:
Compelling evidence indicates that fluoride produces injury to the central nervous system (CNS) by several mechanisms. Of particular interest is the ability of fluoride to induce free radical generation and lipid peroxidation in the brain, especially in the hippocampus. In addition, fluoride enhances aluminum absorption from the gastrointestinal mucosa and across the blood-brain barrier. Of particular concern is the recent demonstration that fluoride readily forms a chemical complex with aluminum, similar to the phosphate ion, which is toxic to neurons at low concentrations and can act as an activator of G-proteins, a membrane link to second messenger activation.
Dr. Blaylock also goes on to write that fluoride has also been found to inhibit thyroid function and thereby alter early neuron migration in the fetus of a pregnant mother. This can result in irreversible changes in the fetal brain.
If you watch the video posted below you’ll also find out he has done an immense amount of studying into the history of water fluoridation and you’ll be shocked to learn the following:
- The Manhatten Project used fluoride to purify uranium to make the a-bombs which damaged farms and farm animals.
- They were keeping secret the fact that fluoride was causing neurological effects.
- Workers lost their teeth due to fluorine gas. They actually noted they had fewer cavities.
- To prevent lawsuits these companies found ways to say fluoride was safe. Alcoa industries was the main company involved.
- They hired a dentist to go around the country claiming fluoride prevented cavities.
- At this same time doctors noted that fluoride at these concentrations caused DNA damage.
- At the time the ADA didn’t want it in the water and called it a poison but changed their mind after being approached by the U.S. Public Health Service.
One final note I have for you concerning water fluoridation is that of all the water supplies, approximately 91% use hydrofluosilicic acid or sodium silicofluoride (together known as silicofluorides), while 9% use sodium fluoride. As with the silicofluorides, sodium fluoride is derived from the phosphate fertilizer industry.
