The Fluoride Deception

I’m not referring to the book located here, but I am referring to the deception that has taken place in the name of fluoride.  What is fluoride?  It is a poison.  I just listened to a lecture by a dentist who used to think fluoride was a good thing and that fluoridated water was something that benefitted humans as a whole.  After some time, he started to wonder why one should call the poison control center if one swallows a pea-sized amount of toothpaste, so he got curious and found out that besides mercury, fluoride is one of the most toxic substances on Earth. So why is it in our water supply?

The story goes something like this:  Many toxic waste comes in the form of fluoride ions that are so corrosive they are almost impossible to dispose of , not to mention very costly.  So the people who had this fluoride lying around and did not want to pay to dispose of it devised a way to unleash it on the general public to devastating effects.  Here is a website that can explain most of the horrific consequences of fluoride:  Fluoride Alert.

At first dentists were against fluoride, but after awhile something happened that got most dentists on its side.  It had something to do with government funding where if a dentist denied that fluoride was beneficial, they would lose funding and no longer be a part of the AMA or ADA.  It is criminal to release such a toxin on our bodies without any scientific evidence that ingesting fluoride helps tooth decay.  In fact, studies show that fluoride, when swallowed, leads to dental and skeletal fluorosis, which is a weakening of the bones.  Fluoride also has numerous mental and intellectual effects.  Various studies have shown that regions who have their water fluoridated have a higher concentration of mentally retarded and intellectually slow people.

I’ve known about the toxic nature of fluoride for some time, but I’ve never written about it extensively, nor have I stopped using fluoridated toothpaste…until today.  I just bought some great toothpaste from Tom’s of Maine that is non-fluoridated and tastes much better and does not have any sweeteners other than xylitol, which we all know is great for tooth decay.  The Nazis used fluoridated water in the concentration camps to make their captors docile and non-agressive.  It is one of the main ingredients in the antidepressant Paxil.  Fluoride is not even FDA approved.  Yet we all ingest it in some form on a daily basis.  Disgusting, horrific, ciminal.

It serves as a means for control of the ruling class.  The only reason fluoride even prevents cavities is because it poisons the bacteria in your mouth to death, not to mention your cells.  Something this toxic should never be ingested by anyone.  But every day, 99% of the population uses it in one form or another.  I just want people to know the truth about fluoride.  It is a way for big business to make money off of their toxic waste at the detriment to the public’s health and to give the government the authority to knowingly poison us through the public water supply.  Europe doesn’t fluoridate their water.  From what I understand, most of Canada does not either.  Do they suffer more cavities?  No.  They don’t.

We are told from a young age that fluoride is safe and is good for us.  I remember getting fluoride treatments as a child.  If I had only known what it was that was on my teeth, I could have put a stop to it.  But at leat now I know the truth and can take steps to not have fluoride in my diet ever again.  I have checked with our spirng water supplier to see if they fluoridate the water and they told me no.  I now use special toothpaste.  Now all I need is a shower filter to prevent myself from inhaling the toxic ion while I take a shower.

At least my toothpaste doesn’t have a Poison Control Center warning on it now.  Makes me sleep better at night.

Edit: For another great expose on fluoride, here’s Steve Pavlina’s post called What’s the Deal With Fluoride?

Another great site called The Fluoride Debate.

Random Thoughts

I just don’t feel like writing anymore. This blog has stayed dormant for some time and I still really don’t have much to write about. I’ve just not felt like writing. What am I going to say anyway? What revelation will I come up with that will wow everyone who reads this site? What else can I possibly say that hasn’t already been said? Apathy has gotten the best of me on this blog.  Who am I writing for anyway?  Are there even people out there anxiously awaiting my next post?  For the most part, I feel like I’m talking to myself.  And what’s the point of that?  Maybe it’s the fact that life may not even have a point.  The only point it has is the ones we dream up.  The socially conditioned ones.  We are told how and what to think our whole lives and discouraged from expressing ourselves in any other way.  We are told what is right and what is wrong.  But all of that is subjective and completely made up.  Everything just is.

What kind of world is there supposed to be anyway?  And who am I to tell anyone how to live their lives?  The universe is a place of such vastness that we know so little about that there is no way we could accurately know how we are supposed to live.  All I know from direct personal experience is that the way we live today is wrong.  But what can we do about it?  How do we find the right way to live?  Is there even a right way to live?  What would be the point of discovering the right way to live?  What would it mean against the backdrop of the cosmos and the timeline of infinity?  No matter what happens, in a trillion years there will be no trace of it.  Sure, we can live for today, but isn’t that kind of short-sighted?

This world we live in is full of life.  Who knows how many other planets have the same diversity we do.  But so what?  Is that something special?  Is this world so much better than any of the other planets just because it is lucky enough to be far enough from the sun to sustain life?  Or is it dumb luck that we are even here in the first place?  Our planet got lucky.  And over billions of years, we got to this point where one species dominates all the others and monopolizes every square inch of land.  We are here and have complex brains capable of doing things no other species can do.

“We are the middle children of history with no great war and no great depression.  Our great war is a spiritual one.  Our great depression is our lives.”

The whole universe is here and we are but a very, very small cog in a gigantic machine.  What is the machine’s purpose?  I do not know.  I cannot know.  There is no way to know.  We are born into this world clueless, without any knowledge of why we are here and we spend our whole lives trying to figure it out, but what if there is no reason?  What if it all is just one big random coincidence?  What if it was one big random accident?  Like the accident of agriculture.  The whole universe could be a colossal mistake, but we would never know it.  There are so many unanswered questions that nobody can answer.  How can we be certain of anything?  How do we know what we think we know?  Is it all just one big illusion?  What is the nature of existence?

I’m just trying to think through all of this here and since I pretty much write for myself on this blog, I’m going to continue doing this.

We live and die for our beliefs, but how do we know that they are accurate beliefs?  Most of the wars fought around the world are about belief systems crashing or simple domination.  It all seems so trivial against eternity, though.  Time keeps on ticking even when we are not aware of it.  Even before time, there was still life and there will be life after time.  Even if it is not measured, time is still experienced, but in a different way.  The dinosaurs had no concept of time other than the present and the recent past.  Time is but an illusion, but at the same time it does exist regardless of if we know about it.  Everything changes over time.  Everything from the smallest microorganism to the universe.  But it is all the same.  It is a universal law.

This is a very disjointed and erratic post, but I like it this way.  I’m not going to let anyone or any writing class tell me how to write.  I’m not going to be the standardized essay format.  Sorry, but that’s just not me.  I’m not going to think by society’s rules.  Sure, I may use their words, but how I place them is up to me.  I’ve forgotten how liberating it is to just let ideas flow and not have to frame them into complete paragraphs.  It just feels natural to think something and let my fingers start moving.  Being a writer is nothing special.  Anyone can write.  A writer is simply someone who writes.  No matter how poorly by social standards the writing is, it is still a written work.  A piece of art.  Unique.

Anyway, I guess I’ll call it a night.  I’ll try this again another day and see what else comes out.  Good night.
