Excellent video from the Fluoride Action Network.
The fluoride thing has been on my radar for quite awhile. I’m finally getting serious about it.
In a nutshell: The limited benefits of pharmaceutical sodium fluoride are achieved via topical application. Fluoride does not work systemically. Yet adding fluoride to public water supplies amounts to the unethical and uncontrolled medical dosing of entire, non-consenting populations, each individual of which consumes and reacts to the fluoride drug differently. The effects are generally adverse.
Given recent studies showing a link between fluoride intake and loss of IQ, conspiracy theorists will argue that fluoridation is a deliberate and ongoing attempt at “population management”. Considering, however, that it is not pharmaceutical grade sodium fluoride being added to the water, but hydra fluorosilicic acid — a fertilizer phosphate industry waste — I think we’re simply seeing the result of capitalistic status quo: a sixty year plus way of turning a profit on expensive industrial waste.
It’s just that, in this case, the human kidney serves as the waste treatment plant. For a neurotoxin.
Now I need to figure out if any of my favorite beers are made from spring water. Cheers.
