Fluoride Damages American Teeth And Makes You Stupid, Maybe
THE fluoride in drinking water is harming the teeth of American children. So says the US Government. It wants the amount of fluoride reduced.
But if it isn’t and damage has already been done, will there be an American generation with British teeth? Well, no. Kelli and Brad will get their gnashers capped with the stuff they use to coat the space shuttle’s belly and then coloured in with Tipp-Ex.
But what about the UK? In 2008, then Health Secretary Alan Johnson called for fluoride to be added to England’s water supplies. He then did as all arse-covering politicians must and called for a big debate. No decision would be made until… Well, when? When are all the facts ever known? And then who makes the final decision if not the elected head who has access to research and vested interest groups?
“I don’t want this to be carried out in areas where there has been no consultation whatsoever. But every time the public hear the arguments they overwhelmingly go for fluoridisation – the problem is the debate has stopped.”
Much depends on who is supplying the information and how it’s being presented. Hampshire had a big debate and voted against fluoride in water.
So. Is mass medication right and proper? About 10% of the UK is currently fluoridated. Are those 10% the lucky ones?
Anorak’s pal 14 has taken a look:
TAP water, I’ve learned, is the granddaddy of all scary monsters. Seemingly sparkling clear and refreshing, tap water seems appears innocent enough, but many are claiming our tap water is a gurgling toxic mess brimming with high levels of pharmaceuticals, sex hormones, and a certain hazardous waste known as fluoride. The sex hormone part could explain themystery of the increasing occurrence of Moobs.
Sure, we’ve all been told fluoride is added to the water to promote strong teeth, but is it causing more harm than good? Claims about fluoride dangers are wide-ranging, everything from causing damage to the thyroid, to dental fluorosis, the reduction of IQ, to my personal favorite, being used as a dumbing down mechanism for the masses so we can be controlled by the government and turned into mindless zombie sheep. What’s really fun about water is they saybottled water also dangerous for all sorts of other reasons.
