Symptoms of Fluoride Toxicity
Most people don’t realize that a minimum dose of fluoride can produce acute toxicity.
Every year excessive ingestion of fluoride dental products (toothpaste, mouth rinses, and supplements) results in thousands of reports to Poison Control Centers in the United States. Ingestion of as little as one percent of a tube of flavored children's toothpaste can produce acute fluoride toxicity in a young child. (How many little kids eat toothpaste?)
Every parent (not to mention the rest of us) would benefit from knowing the early symptoms of acute fluoride toxicity. They are gastrointestinal pain, nausea, vomiting, and headaches. These symptoms can be produced at doses as low as 0.1 to 0.3 mg/kg. This is about 15 to 50 times lower than the dose (5 mg/kg) that can kill.
Fluoride affects the entire body
When fluoride is added to the drinking water, this affects the entire body, not just your teeth. When something is added to the city’s drinking water, and is used to process food, everything from Tortilla Chips to cereals, cakes, soups, etc. is affected. As the water evaporates, the fluoride becomes concentrated.
Let’s consider why we have nicotine patches, seasickness patches, female hormone pill patches, and birth control patches. Because our skin is extremely absorbent! So in addition to drinking fluoridated water, we also absorb the fluoride through our skin. Every time we take a hot shower or bath, we open the pores and absorb some amounts of chlorine, chloramines, and of course, fluoride, which unfortunately, happens to be an industrial waste.
In other words, what the city really adds to your drinking/bathing water is an industrial waste. It is called hydrofluorosilicic acid, and it has all kinds of heavy metals. This form of fluoride has been broken down by acids so that it is extremely toxic and absorbable.
Where to go for the truth
I have compiled an excellent condensed summary about the highly controversial political/medical issues of fluoridation. The first video is 3:30 minutes and is a super short version of the truth about fluoridation. It takes a little while to load. Please be patient, it is well worth it. http://www.cbsatlanta.com/video/22781769/index.html
The second video is 30 minutes long and I guarantee you that this is probably the best 30 minutes you’ll spend educating yourself on the full aspects of fluoridation. http://www.fluoridealert.org/
Finally, if you want to be amused, type in the word Fluoxetine in the Internet. Don’t be surprised if you see all the generic name brands for Prozac (a very powerful anti-depressant drug).
Eliminate fluoride from your water source & reduce your fluoride consumption
It really doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that maybe adding fluoride to the drinking water is not a good idea and just maybe, it would be a bright idea to fully remove this particular element from your drinking and bathing water.
