Most of us are exposed to fluroide on a daily basis. Fluoride is a by-product of various manufacturing processes. In the 1930's in Belgium, many people were killed due to an airborne release of fluoride. We have also experienced fluoride casualties in America.

In the 1940's fluoride was properly classified as a poison, but it was needed to produce nuclear weapons for the war effort. It was during this era that fluroide was first introduced into the American, water supply. The question to ask is, how did fluoride, a known poison, mutate into a harmless element and end up in our water supply?

To make matters worse, in the 1950's fluoride was added to toothpaste and it has been there ever since. This being a slick move to dispose of a hazardous material. Now, the unsuspecting public is paying for fluoride in more ways than one.

The Food and Drug Administration has never approved the use of fluoride for human consuption. Many countries recognize the dangers of fluoride and have banned its use in their drinking water.

Some studies have shown that fluoride does not prevent dental cavities and to be of any affect at all for children, fluoride must placed topically on the teeth. Fluoride can cause fluorosis, at toxic fluorine poisoning with white, spotty teeth.

Approximately, one-hlaf of all fluoride that enters the boby can be eliminated. The rest remains to deplete the calcium reserves, which leads to weak bones and fractures. Bathing exposes one to fluoride via the skin.

Each year thousands of calls are made to poison control centers related to the ingestion of fluoride, Shockingly, there is enough fluoride in one tube of toothpaste to kill a child under the age of nine. This is the standard warning on the back of fluoride toothpaste, "Warning keep out of reach of children under six years of age. If more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed, get medical help or contact a poison control center right away. Active ingredient sodium fluoride 0.24%."

It sounds as though fluoride was properly classified as a poison to start with. Baking soda offers a better alternative to fluoridated toothpaste or non-fluroidated toothpaste is available at health food stores. Think before you reach.
