Explosive article against water fluoridation (Dr. Mercola)!

I knew something was fishy with there being fluoride in the water...but I had never researched the exact medical arguments.

This article (and accompanying video) is a tour-de-force!

No more fluoride in the water for Sandpoint, Idaho


No more fluoride in the water for Sandpoint, Idaho

by KREM.com

Posted on July 26, 2010 at 5:34 PM

SANDPOINT-- There’s a little something extra in the Sandpoint water, but it won’t be there much longer.

City leaders voted to stop adding fluoride to the water. This comes amid recent arguments from people saying they’re being medicated against their will.

A group of citizens have been petitioning the city council to remove fluoride from the water. Now the council has taken action. Fluoride has been recommended by the Centers for Disease Control to help promote good oral health, but several groups in Sandpoint raised questions about where the fluoride was coming from and how it was interacting with other chemicals in the water.

The mayor says many council members voted to remove the fluoride because they believe they should not add anything to the water unless it is for public safety.

The city had been adding fluoride since 1951. The city will stop putting it in come October.

Don't think that being poisined with Fluoride is just in the US.

Some European, Central American, South American and Caribbean nations are actually fluoridating their salt as a means of forced medication.


Apparently Kelloggs is not satisfied with selling us junk cereals, but through a Foundation is pushing this "health" initiative around the world via NWO organizations like the World Health Organization. Isn't that ironic; sell sugar laden cereals to rot your teeth, and then promote health destroying fluoride to pretend to save your teeth.

Well, at least the fluoridated salt should keep the French and Germans passive enough to avoid their periodic wars against one another.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

Update from Fluorida

Fluoride fight brews in Emerald Coast Utilities Authority races

Campaigns mounted over drinking water



July 11, 2010.

The campaigns for two Emerald Coast Utilities Authority seats have an undercurrent: Whether fluoride should continue to be added to local drinking water.

The issue could be effectively decided if the two pro-flouride incumbents — Lois Benson in District 2 and Dale Perkins in District 4 — lose to challengers who are either stridently against fluoride or at least open to reconsidering its use.

... in 2008, little-known anti-fluoride candidate Elizabeth Campbell scored a political upset when she defeated pro-fluoride incumbent Logan Fink. She has continued her crusade against the additive since taking office.

If Benson and Perkins were replaced with anti-fluoride board members, Campbell and the two new members could form an anti-fluoride majority on the five-member board.

Campbell raised the issue for discussion at an April 21 ECUA board committee meeting, but no action was taken, so the issue subsided for the time being.

The Fluoride Action Network argues that fluoridaion may actually increase tooth decay and contribute to neurological issues ranging from lowered IQs in children to Alzheimer's disease, in the elderly.

Kirkland compared fluoride in drinking water to lead in gasoline. He believes fluoride may be good as a topical treatment to fight tooth decay but not for internal consumption.

"They used to say cars couldn't run without lead in the gas until they found out lead was harming children and everybody else," said Kirkland, 26, a student at Pensacola State College. "Even if fluoride were safe, is it really the ECUA's right to medicate the entire population of Escambia County when some people don't want to be medicated?"



This has been my experience

This has been my experience with fluoride.

Your "access has been denied"?


Well that's a GOOD thing !!!!!

Unless you meant something else.



Update out of Mt Pleasant, Michigan


The following excerpts from this story show the difference between an elected official with a spine and one who should just go ahead and dress in some sort of lizard outfit.

I'm not necessarily saying which one is which.

You all decide for yourselves:

Fluoride lowered in Mt. Pleasant; Vice Mayor Kilmer remains opposed to the lowering



The vice mayor of the city of Mt. Pleasant does not feel it was right for the city commission to overturn a vote by the people.

Last week, the city water department reduced the amount of fluoride in the water from 0.7 parts per million to an average .5 ppm following a resolution passed by the commission 4 to 2 on June 14 to "temporarily reduce the amount of fluoride."

"(City residents) voted to put the fluoride in the water," Vice Mayor Bruce Kilmer said. "They assumed it would be enough fluoride to prevent tooth decay.

"I think we overturned the vote of the people while the studies are incomplete."

The vote in June took place following acceptance of a report in May given to the commissioners by the fluoride task force which was chaired by Commissioner Kathleen Ling.

"...I want to assure people that neither the city commission nor the fluoride task force had any intention of ignoring the voters," said Ling in an editorial published by the Sun on June 27.

"What the fluoride task force was trying to do was weigh the possible benefits and the possible negative health effects," said Ling.

On May 24, Ling read from the report, "We believe that elected officials have an obligation to be good custodians of the public water system," said Ling, as she read remarks by Sharyl Majorski, a member of the task force. "The precautionary principle dictates that we err on the side of safety.

"Until we feel that we can say with a high degree of certainty that water fluoridation is doing no harm, we believe it is prudent to stop using it until the safety issues raised in the most recent reports are addressed."

After 2005, when the last vote took place regarding fluoride being placed in the city water system, studies were reported by the National Research Council that identified potential health risks, and they asked the Environmental Protection Agency to conduct new studies in 2006 on their concerns - that review has not been completed.

"Nobody knows when they're going to be done," said Kilmer. "The federal agencies are doing the studies, and they have no projected timeline.

"It really surprised me that the resolution passed. Because it was real clear what the residents wanted. The fluoride in the water," he said.



Fluoride in water blamed for kidney ailments - Sri Lanka


Fluoride in water blamed for kidney ailments

Dinesh De ALWIS

The high level of fluoride in North Central Province water has resulted in an increase in kidney disease, the Institute of Fundamental Studies (IFS) based on research finding revealed.

Kidney disease, also known as chronic renal disease, is widely spreading in the North Central Province.

According to research, IFS found that the Fluoride percentage in the water in areas in the Province is above the normal figure. Fifty five to 60 percent of water in wells in the North Central Province has over in 1 mg/1 Fluoride. The healthy Fluoride content should be below 1 mg/1.

Kekirawa, Maha Alagamuwa, Giribawa, Galgamuwa, Jayanthipura, Polonnaruwa and Kahatagasdigiliya have been identified as areas where Kidney disease is spreading. There is also a possible danger of Dental Fluorosis and Bones Fluorosis spreading in the zone.



Class action?

How do you prove damages? We are all having our lives shortened by disease from hazardous chemicals, but how do we prove it in court?
I wonder if the best route might not be to sue the EPA, or FDA ?

Live free or DIE!

Not so sure damages would have to be proven


Again, it's the addition of a medication/drug without the consent of individuals or without individual doctors prescribing for individual patients this medication/drug. Furthermore, there's no way to control individual dosage.

I'd like to contact the ACLU and ask someone there (besides a receptionist) if it would be legal for even something like Metamucil to be added to the water supply.....or even vitamin c, for that matter.

Obviously, the answer would be 'no' if these (or anything else) were added for the intention of treating the public.

What about Holy Water?

Would that be legal to add?

That's hilarious though. I bet if some municipality tried to add Holy Water to their supply, the ACLU would be seething with anger.

Anyhow, I'm not trying to go on a rant against the ACLU. It just seems that some muscle would be needed to get this off the ground, but I somehow doubt they'd supply theirs.



a clearly documented

physical checkup, before living in, or moving to an area, in which water is fluoridated. then, a physical AFTER, that can clearly chart a difference in chemical makeup or toxicology of your body.

It's an awkward process, but like all these things, unfortunately, the burden of proof is on the victim's side to prove; unless one becomes sick or physically damaged, or show clear symptoms of fluoride poisoning, I would presume that one would have very hard time establishing a legal standing for a lawsuit.

However, IF one can prove that there are documentation within the archives of a public/private waterworks that supply your municipality with water that clearly indicates that whomever in charge had internal memo or documentation that can verify that, that person read the report, warnings, studies, or findings that clearly showcase harmful nature of fluoride, but yet decided to go ahead anyway, that shows clear intent with malice.

That would he a far better case; they knew it was poison, but decided to pour it in anyway.

but like all things, town by town, you can vote to rid it or prevent it at city council level, like Flagstaff, AZ and many other municipalities did.

I do believe fluoride action network (http://www.fluoridealert.org/) has a listing of activist tools.

good luck!


We are getting medical treatment from a bunch of politicians!

When I go to a doctor for advice or treatment, I can choose to proceed with his treatment or reject it, go elsewhere, or do no treatment at all. With politicians the treatment they decide on is crammed down my throat. Even if I buy bottled water, I am exposed to fluoride treatment if food I buy is processed with water from a fluoridated water system. If I take a shower, or wash dishes I absorb fluoride via my skin. It is so widespread, that I can't avoid it.

I am sure most politicians don't understand squat about chemistry, so how can they understand the problem that the halogen group of chemicals present? Fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine, and astatine have in common an outer electron shell with seven electrons which makes them extremely reactive. This is why they can easily kill life; fluorine and bromine are used to kill bacteria in pools for example. Chlorine is used to disinfect water and was the basis of mustard gas in WWI. Iodine has a history of use as a disinfectant, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent. Chlorine and iodine or their salts are needed by our bodies. There is no known need in our bodies for fluorine and bromine.

Fluorine is the smallest of this group, chlorine next, bromine next, with iodine being the largest. The smaller, the more reactive, so fluorine is the most dangerous.

Research is showing that the human population needs much more iodine that the RDA indicates. Additionally levels of iodine in our food supply have been dropping resulting in increased problems with goiter, thyroid cancer, breast fibroids and breast cancer, ovarian cysts and ovarian cancer, enlarged prostate and prostate cancer, atrial fibrillation, osteoarthritis, diabetes, Dupuytren's contracture, and who knows what else.

If one does not get enough iodine or enough iodine in relation to the other halogens, then the other halogens take the place of iodine in our cells (each cell needs iodine). This is the root of many human maladies. Fluoride is the most dangerous of the halogens because it is the most reactive and is implicated in the breakdown of collagen and cartilage. It is the hardest to remove once it latches onto a cell.

So these fellows that say that fluoride is safe are just flat out wrong. I would be happy for them to be wrong and exercise their own free will by ingest all the fluoride they want; Darwin never sleeps. Fluoride tablets can be bought and added to the water in their homes if they want to accept that risk. But when they exercise their arrogance to impose their thinking on me, then I am forced to bear the consequences of their perception of reality.

To me this is an act of violence on their part, and is unacceptable in a free society.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

and as a result of that violence.....

its time to sue their asses off!!!

anyone up for a class action lawsuit?? We have the evidence...so what the hell are we waiting for??

If the legal system brought justice, this might work.

But I don't think the present legal system is anything but a rubber stamp for those in power. That is why in revolutions judges, lawyers, bureaucrats and aristocrats often keep appointments with Madame Guillotine or some less formal means of termination.

My own view is that we are so close to civil war or revolution that what wealth the government has not already plundered is better directed in preparation for the even greater violence to come.

In the interim, the best way to deal with the detrimental use of fluorine and bromine is to make sure that we are not deficient in iodine, and in fact to use iodine in therapeutic doses to help remove from our bodies the high levels of fluorine, bromine, and similar toxins like lead, mercury, and arsenic. There is considerable information on the internet as to how to proceed with such a program.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

Excellent info Henry, thanks!

One thing about iodine... Dr. Mark Sircus highly recommends nascent iodine because of how quickly and easily it is assimilated into the body:

"What is Nascent Iodine?

Nascent Iodine is a consumable iodine in its atomic form rather than its molecular form. It is an iodine atom that has an incomplete number of electrons. It is paramagnetic. What does that mean? Well, it means that the iodine atoms can hold an electromagnetic charge. While this all might sound a little like a flashback to chemistry class, the most important thing to understand is that Nascent Iodine has a huge energy release when consumed. This “charged” state is held by the atom until diluted in water and consumed, whereby it gradually loses energy over a 2-3 hour time span. During this time, Nascent Iodine is recognized by the body as the same iodine that is produced by the thyroid and is absorbed effortlessly by the body.

I believe he also says that the form of iodine found in table salt is basically useless, and that sodium chloride (the industrial waste known as table salt that is all that is left of sea salt after all of the other beneficial minerals have been stripped out of it) does more damage than any possible benefits of the iodine.

What are your thoughts?

5% lugol's solution or Iodoral, either will do the trick.

If someone wants to pay the extra cost, the type of iodine you mention will work, but I think lugol's solution or Iodoral tablets are effective also. You can purchase potassium iodide powder and iodine crystals of ebay and mix them in distilled water (2 oz. KI, 1 oz. I2 and 2 cups of distilled water) to make your own Lugol's (5% or 6.25mg per drop) if you want to go the most economical route, or Iodoral 12.5mg tablets can be bought online in 3 packs (360 tablets total) for about $100, so that works out to about $1.25 a day for a therapeutic dose of 50mg per day.

But there are other supplements that are needed along with the iodine itself to help you body absorb it and to deal with the period of toxicity as the large quantity of iodine you ingest replaces or removes the fluoride, bromine, lead, mercury, and arsenic in your body and puts those in your blood stream. Do your own research.

And what you say about salt is quite correct. Standard commercial table salt is a refined product, and what is needed is about 1 teaspoon of unrefined salt a day. Commercial salt as a source of iodine is a joke. Here is one set of videos that discuss this:


"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

Every single person who wants to rid themselves of fluoride...

needs and must take this type of iodine...

here is a post about it in more details..(along with testimonials about peoples success taking it)


I agree


I mean, just on the basis of mass-medicating
with no consent, no direct doctor/patient diagnosis and/or prescription.


Where is the ACLU on this matter?...hahahaha!!

I thought they were supposed to be standing up for our rights?

I'm about to do a search on that right now regarding the ACLU....BRB.



I did a few searches


Apparently, the ACLU has managed to stay completely
away from this issue.

I even went to their site and searched the term and ZERO results were generated.

I did find this letter to editor, however:

No fluoride in our water

I'm wondering if the ACLU will step up and defend the apparent minority of voters who oppose the fluoridation of our waters. If so, now would be a good time. I get more than enough fluoride brushing my teeth; I don't need it in my water, too.

The ADA tried to draw them in one time

Said they approved water flouridation, they didn't.

Henry -


Your post was very informative AND succinct.

MUCH appreciated.

I didn't previously know much of the detail of what you posted.



Nick Danger. Why do my teeth need sodium flouride?

Please explain this to me. You seem so knowledgeable. I can't find any source that says teeth need sodium flouride; can you direct me to a few?

Great Find! Just watched it over the weekend, too.

Plus, Dr.Mercola is a BIG time Ron Paul supporter.


RON PAUL 2012!!!

just watching the 1st one


I'm getting more angry each day....


...about how my town (Lakeland, FL) fluoridates our water supply.

I can't afford a whole-house filtering system, nor do I even nec trust the methods of filtration (alumina?)

If these criminals would just remove the freakin' fluoride from the water, my Black Berkey filters would take care of most everything else they throw at me.

Why does fluoride have to be so hard to filter out?

Anyhow, I'm getting to the point where I'm going to have to start going to city council meetings and playing the "quack" card in front of my entire community.

Not only that, I live in Polk County, FL. This is ground-zero for the phosphate/fertilizer industry, and therefore, ground-zero for the fluoride that's still produced in the U.S.

It wouldn't sit to kindly with the good-ol'-boys who run this town.



fluoride is perhaps the smallest chemical pollutant....

that is found in our water! (much smaller than say chlorine)

I did some research on how to get rid of it in your water without spending a fortune.. if you want it I will send it to you. just hit me up at contact.

Please send this to me as well

Contact me soon...I have 3 little ones.

Thanks -


By the way, that's one of my side emails. I don't really sale rain barrels for a living. No one here in Polk County FL gives a rats-@$$ about anything regarding health. In fact, I just wrote the local water dept the other day regarding the fluoride in the water and here's how that conversation went:


There is fluoride in the water. It's a very dangerous chemical that's a byproduct of the fertilizer industry. It's illegal to medicate someone without a prescription. So why is it legal for the City of Lakeland to place it in our water supply? Who do I contact regarding the removal of this dangerous substance from our water supply? For more info on just how toxic this substance really is, I highly suggest visiting: http://www.fluoridealert.org/
Thank you.

Lakeland Water Dept:

The addition of fluoride for the prevention of dental caries is an accepted process by the American Dental Association, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and by Polk County Health Department. For more information please refer to a letter concerning fluoride from FDEP at http://www.dep.state.fl.us/water/drinkingwater/fluo.htm
Thank you



ok sent you email...

has all the details in it.

This is intellectual Garbage. Calling it pseudo-science

would glorify it too much.

Unfortunately most of Mercola's readers are completely helpless and have no way to sort out the factual materials from the utter nonsense.

Fluoridation of water does prevent dental caries. Fact.

Fluoridation of water is safe. Fact.

Can we get back to stopping the war and the plundering of the world and leave the quacks and crazies to writhe in the own muck?
