Fluoride: Dining on Industrial Waste


By Kattie Shumaker-Ellis

To give you a good idea of just how dangerous fluoride is – the Nazis added it to the water supply of imprisoned Jews during World War II. Why?  It wasn’t to save their teeth. It was because fluoride made them docile and easier to manage. Since then, the U.S. has been fluoridating drinking water for so many decades we hardly think about it. Very few articles appear about fluoridation in newspapers and magazines any more. This is no accident.

Not only is it unsafe and toxic but it is very difficult to get rid of; chlorine will evaporate from a glass of water if you let it sit for an hour or so. No such luck with fluoride. Even cooking, food, water filtration, or digestion doesn’t remove fluoride. It goes right up the food chain and accumulates in the fat cells.

What would you do if you suddenly found out that fluoride was not safe at all, but was actually a carcinogenic industrial waste? What would you think if you suddenly found out that fluoride doesn’t stop tooth decay at all, but actually causes teeth to rot and crumble, and by the same mechanism, also causes osteoporosis? And after you found out all this, would it surprise you that all federal health agencies have known these facts for years, but have been controlled by the political interests of the nuclear arms, aluminum, and phosphate manufacturers to keep it a secret? In the total absence of scientific proof, a toxic industrial waste has been passed off on the public as a nutrient with necessary health benefits, to the tune of $10 billion per year. Or more.


Fluoride acid (hydrofluorosilicic acid) is actually classified as a hazardous waste. The fluoride added to drinking water is a compound of fluorine that is a chemical byproduct of aluminum, steel, cement, phosphate, and nuclear weapons manufacturing. Such fluoride is man-made. In this form, fluoride has no nutrient value whatsoever. It is one of the most caustic of industrial chemicals and an  active toxin in rat poisons and cockroach powder. (Dustrude)

“Hydrofluoric acid is used to refine high octane gasoline, to make fluorocarbons and chlorofluorocarbons for freezers and air conditioners, and to manufacture computer screens, fluorescent light bulbs, semiconductors, plastics, herbicides, — and toothpaste. It also has the ability to burn flesh to the bone, destroy eyes, and sear lungs so that victims drown in their own body fluid.”
– Foulkes

Once in the body, fluoride is a destroyer of human enzymes. It does this by changing their shapes. In the Enzymes chapter at www.thedoctorwithin.com it says that in human biochemistry, thousands of enzymes are necessary for various essential cell reactions that take place every second we’re alive. (Howell) Without enzymes, we’d die instantaneously.

Stop brushing your teeth with rat poison! But don’t just take my word for it. Go to any local hardware store and look at the ingredients label on the back of a box of Rat Poison. You’ll see that fluoride is, in fact, the main ingredient.

The back of your fluoride toothpaste says to notify a PoisonControlCenter if only a pea-sized amount or more is swallowed. Yet, this is 3X less the amount of fluoride that’s in an 8 oz. glass of water… and we’re told to drink 6-8 glasses of per day! Get distilled water; it’s the purest form of water that you can buy, usually bottled in jugs at the grocery store, the. purest water you can possibly find.

Many brand names such as Nestle, Evian, Ozarka Spring water, and even bottles that are labeled as “Drinking Water” are useless because they come from public water sources and still contain regular amounts of fluoride, so it would be pointless to purchase them. By the way, Evian spelled backwards says “naive.”

Some of the symptoms of fluoride poisoning, aside from making us docile, include bone cancer in young boys, loss of calcium and magnesium, Alzheimer’s, heart disease and thyroid trouble.

By now we all know how cancer begins with one cell whose inner blueprint – its DNA – has been screwed with. Remember those velcro hydrogen bonds? Guess what other shape they hold together: the double helix – DNA. This turns out to be the exact mechanism of fluoride as a carcinogen.

Austrian and Japanese researchers both found that a concentration of 1 PPM fluoride causes disruption of the body’s ability to repair its own DNA. Without this most basic cell function, cancer is promoted, and tumor growth is accelerated. (Klein) (Tsutsui) That’s standard fluoride level in U.S. city water: one part per million.

On p. 65 of his book, Dr. Yiamouyiannis provides an amazing chart of some 19 major scientific studies conducted in universities all over the world, together proving beyond a doubt that fluoride causes genetic damage.  On p. 68, there is another list of world studies proving the same thing with plants and insects – genetic alteration from fluoride.

Even if you don’t live in a community where fluoride is added to water, you’ll still be getting a dose of it through cereal, soda, juice, beer and any other processed food and drink manufactured with fluoridated water.

Chief chemist of the National Cancer Institute, Dr. Dean Burk, when confronted with mountains of data, stated before Congress:

”The purpose of the chapter has been to acquaint the reader with some of the basic issues in regard to drinking water, issues which are systematically hidden from the media, for obvious reasons.”

.In Polk  County, Florida, the creation of multiple phosphate plants in the 1940s caused damage to nearly 25,000 acres of citrus groves and “mass fluoride poisoning” of cattle. It is estimated that, as a result of fluoride contamination, “the cattle population of Polk County dropped 30,000 head” between 1953 and 1960, and “an estimated 150,000 acres of cattle land were abandoned” (Linton 1970). According to the former president of the Polk County Cattlemen’s Association:

“Around 1953 we noticed a change in our cattle… We watched our cattle become gaunt and starved, their legs became deformed; they lost their teeth. Reproduction fell off and when a cow did have a calf, it was also affected by this malady or was a stillborn.”Fluorine is an element. It is a gas, never occurring naturally in its free state. In microscopic amounts, complexed with other minerals, it is often listed as a trace mineral, a nutrient for human nutrition. Other sources disagree, holding that “no experimental work or clinical observations have proved that fluorine is in any manner essential for animals or man.” (Alesen, p.5)

Fluoride lowers the IQ by destroying the necessary neurons (electric signals-carry information) that the brain normally sends and receives. The result is an inability for the brain to function at its maximum potential. The affected individual remains unemotional, compliant, and will easily follow orders. Sounds like a plan.

What’s it going to take for us to realize the many sources of these endless health problems? It doesn’t stop with fluoride, friends. There are even straight up cancer cures, HIV/AIDS cures, etc. that are deliberately suppressed! WHY? Because there’s no money in the cure. On the contrary, fluoride is now being touted by our warmongering leaders across the mainstream media as a weapon of mass destruction.

Is a deception of this magnitude possible for the sophisticated, discerning American public?

  1. Hi. Good questions. Personally I distill my water (from the tap) because it takes out everything – including fluoride. Most faucet filters do not take out fluoride but the ones that filter the entire house do, I believe. (expensive, though) I buy everything organic – especially meat. Water from wells are usually safe.

  2. Is distilled water tap water? Which bottled water is safe?Does distilling tap water at home effective? How is flouride absent? Are any faucet filters useful? Then what food do we eat? NY is fluoridated. Is the local farmers’ water supply affected too?
