A Forgotten Fluoride Letter, from a Government Scientist [A Jon Rappoport Report]

A Forgotten Fluoride Letter, from a Government Scientist

by Jon Rappoport

I wrote and posted this article about eight years ago, and then again six years ago. It concerns a shocking letter written by an EPA scientist in 1999.

The letter shouldn’t be forgotten.

Here we go:

It’s no surprise that the US government would look the other way when lower IQ and cancer are business as usual.

One of the major agencies that would look the other way is the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

—But suppose scientists within the EPA spoke out, revolted, and issued official rebukes to their own Agency’s position on fluorides?

Talk about cognitive dissonance. Contradiction. “We at the EPA know fluorides are wonderful and safe and beautiful. Of course, our own scientists disagree. Strongly. But don’t worry, we’re ignoring them. And we’re keeping their statements out of the press. Our position on fluorides is administrative. It has nothing to do with science. Anyway, we support cancer and plummeting IQ. They’re wonderful.”

Case in point, going back 17 years. Buckle up. Here is what the EPA Union of scientists had to say about fluoridation:

Quoting from a May 1, 1999, statement— “Why U.S. Environmental Protection Agency scientists opposes artificial water fluoridation”—written by William Hirzy, PhD, [Union of Scientists] Senior Vice-President, Chapter 280:

“…our opposition to drinking water fluoridation has grown, based on the scientific literature documenting the increasingly out-of-control exposures to fluoride, the lack of benefit to dental health from ingestion of fluoride and the hazards to human health from such ingestion. These hazards include acute toxic hazard, such as to people with impaired kidney function, as well as chronic toxic hazards of gene mutations, cancer, reproductive effects, neurotoxicity, bone pathology and dental fluorosis.”

“In support of this concern are results from two epidemiology studies from China that show decreases in I.Q. in children who get more fluoride than the control groups of children in each study. These decreases are about 5 to 10 I.Q. points in children aged 8 to 13 years.”

“Another troubling brain effect has recently surfaced: fluoride’s interference with the function of the brain’s pineal gland. The pineal gland produces melatonin which, among other roles, mediates the body’s internal clock, doing such things as governing the onset of puberty. Jennifer Luke has shown that fluoride accumulates in the pineal gland and inhibits its production of melatonin. She showed in test animals that this inhibition causes an earlier onset of sexual maturity, an effect reported in humans as well in 1956…”

“EPA fired the Office of Drinking Water’s chief toxicologist, Dr. William Marcus, who also was our local union’s treasurer at the time, for refusing to remain silent on the cancer risk issue. The judge who heard the lawsuit he [Marcus] brought against EPA over the firing made that finding—that EPA fired him over his fluoride work and not for the phony reason put forward by EPA management at his dismissal. Dr. Marcus won his lawsuit and is again at work at EPA.”

“…data showing increases in osteosarcomas in young men in New Jersey, Washington and Iowa based on their drinking fluoridated water. It was his [Dr. Marcus’] analysis, repeated statements about all these and other incriminating cancer data, and his requests for an independent, unbiased evaluation of them that got Dr. Marcus fired.”

“Regarding the effectiveness of fluoride in reducing dental cavities, there has not been any double-blind study of fluoride’s effectiveness as a caries preventative. There have been many, many small scale, selective publications on this issue that proponents cite to justify fluoridation, but the largest and most comprehensive study, one done by dentists trained by the National Institute of Dental Research, on over 39,000 school children aged 5-17 years, shows no significant differences (in terms of decayed, missing and filled teeth) among caries [cavities] incidences in fluoridated, non-fluoridated and partially fluoridated communities. The latest publication on the fifty-year fluoridation experiment in two New York cities, Newburgh and Kingston, shows the same thing. The only significant difference in dental health between the two communities as a whole is that fluoridated Newburgh, N.Y. shows about twice the incidence of dental fluorosis (the first, visible sign of fluoride chronic toxicity) as seen in non-fluoridated Kingston.”

“John Colquhoun’s publication on this point of efficacy is especially important. Dr. Colquhoun was Principal Dental Officer for Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand, and a staunch supporter of fluoridation—until he was given the task of looking at the world-wide data on fluoridation’s effectiveness in preventing cavities. The paper is titled, ‘Why I changed My Mind About Water Fluoridation.’ In it Colquhoun provides details on how data were manipulated to support fluoridation in English speaking countries, especially the U.S. and New Zealand. This paper explains why an ethical public health professional was compelled to do a 180 degree turn on fluoridation.”

“…mutation studies…show that fluoride can cause gene mutations in mammalian and lower order tissues at fluoride concentrations estimated to be present in the mouth from fluoridated tooth paste. Further, there were tumors of the oral cavity seen in the NTP cancer study…further strengthening concern over the toxicity of topically applied fluoride.”

“So, in addition to our concern over the toxicity of fluoride, we note the uncontrolled – and apparently uncontrollable – exposures to fluoride that are occurring nationwide via drinking water, processed foods, fluoride pesticide residues and dental care products…For governmental and other organizations to continue to push for more exposure in the face of current levels of over-exposure coupled with an increasing crescendo of adverse toxicity findings is irrational and irresponsible at best.”

“We have also taken a direct step to protect the [EPA] employees we represent from the risks of drinking fluoridated water…the union filed a grievance, asking that EPA provide un-fluoridated drinking water to its employees.”

“The implication for the general public of these calculations is clear. Recent, peer-reviewed toxicity data, when applied to EPA’s standard method for controlling risks from toxic chemicals, require an immediate halt to the use of the nation’s drinking water reservoirs as disposal sites for the toxic waste of the phosphate fertilizer industry.”

That last sentence lets you know where the fluorides are coming from.

So…an employees’ union of scientists within the EPA has made its position clear.

Quite clear.

The mainstream press has refused to cover this story in any significant way for at least 17 years.

In 2013, the EPA denied a petition from Dr. Hirzy calling for the removal of fluorides from water supplies. In a pinch, I guess the Agency can find scientists hanging around bus stations and bars and crack houses and get them to say what they want them to say and stamp it official.

—Scientists who’ve been guzzling fluoridated water themselves and thus have microscopic IQs.

  1. Thank you very much for posting this very important work.

    I have compiled some information on water fluoridation chemicals and if interested please see last paragraph. Thank you.

    You only have to look at the website of the Medical Error Action Group to see how catastrophic AHPRA and the entire rotten to the core system is.
    We don’t forget either the menacing intimidation and threats from the Head of the Australian Medical Association about anyone choosing not to be injected and also the fact that when the jabs first came out the Australian Medical Association didn’t care about Jab/vaccine adverse reactions/deaths and injuries; no the Bastards, their only concern was that the Government indemnify them all against any claims.
    Forced/Mandated/ Gunpoint Medicine is absolutely abhorrent and all mandates must be stopped and abolished permanently and irrevocably.
    The entire system is totally corrupted with systemic and extensive Conflicts of Interest.
    Many Medical Professionals have violated their SACRED OATH First Do No Harm and the People’s Rights to Fully Informed Consent OR REFUSAL of Medical Treatment (or any Treatment).

    Every Medical Professional should join AMPS – AUSTRALIAN MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS SOCIETY.

  2. I live in a small community in the california foothills, for years i have drank bottled water, recently i learned that the bottled water is just as bad as the tap actually it was said that the tap water would be a better choice, its sad that our government the ones we trusted to do whats right for us, turns out the bastards were poisoning the american people and by that i mean our food,air the cattle chickens and now there killing the fish, they want us to starve, so we will beg them for food or better yet we the people would kill one another for food, who and what kind of low life piece of scumbag shit would have the gonads to actually put such evil ugly slimey scum in our drinking water? The f ing leftest reptilians snakes and all there fucking minons that are getting large amounts of money to keep there fucking mouth shut and of course more agree than dont. Nice country were living in and have been for my entire life, i had cancer, congestive heart failure and my bones ache and throb daily, i was a happy healthy strong person that was raised on a cattle ranch worked early and hard everyday, the older i get the worse i feel daily its hard to become a person that lives with pain in my bones, my vision has been bad for sometime, i had the most beautiful teeth in my school days one day i was using a tooth pick and my tooth crumbled i was so upset later on i had to get dentures. My question to all medical and dental professionals how long have you all known about the posioning of our water for that matter our air our food, any of them that i ever see on the street or elsewhere i will swerve my car towards them and flatten there evil ass to the pavement. Oh just so that everyone learns this, there has been products that cleared cavities up and get this one there is a product that grows our teeth back, so after all this does anyone really think the government and dentists, doctors, the fda,cdc,ccp,ama,and all the other f ing places that were very well informed that that toxic waste in our water, air and food was slowly killing everyone of us, and they smile say yes yes yes to anything while thinking hurry up and die and shut your mouth about the toxic waste or you will be shut up/ murdered, yes murdered wait until everyone learns just how many people have been murdered because the evil demonic left dosent let anyone to live that they think might tell on what they have been doing to americans. Think about that for a minute man i have more questions for those hell bound hounds. F them all burn in hell losers……….. And there will be much more to learn about the lizard face bastards/snakes of satan.
