Poison is added to drinking water consumed by 70 percent of Americans

For 70 percent of Americans, the drinking water that runs from their tap has poison added when your drinking water is processed and filtered and pumped through the pipes before it flows into your kitchen sink. The poison is added because many have been scammed into the notion that adding this poison to the drinking water will have health benefits.

The poison referenced here is fluoride, the stuff you think of as being in your toothpaste. Read the back of your tube of toothpaste, and it's disclaimed as a poison and you are advised to call your local poison control center if you ingest the stuff. Yet that same poison, or even a far worse form of it, is added to your drinking water in most communities in the United States.

Here is what the Fluoride Action Network, an organization that opposes adding fluoride to drinking water, says about it, “Most developed nations in the world have rejected fluoridation, including 97% of western Europe. The United States, which fluoridates more than 70% of its water supplies, is an exception to this rule. According to the British Fluoridation Society, there are more people drinking artificially fluoridated water in the United States than all other countries combined.”

Dr. Joseph Mercola, who publishes the most widely read health newsletter on the web, has written extensively about the unhealthy aspects of fluoride exposure and the specific issue of fluoridation of the drinking water. But the fluoride added to the drinking water is far worse, it's not the “pharmaceutical” grade of fluoride found in your toothpaste, but a far worse variation that is a by-product of processing fertilizer.

Dr. Mercola outlined the issues with the fluoride commonly added to drinkig water:

When “fluoride” is added to your drinking water, it’s NOT the natural mineral. Instead, the fluoride in question is another chemical fluoride compound – the toxic waste product from phosphate fertilizer plants.

There are three basic compounds commonly used for fluoridating water supplies:

  1. Sodium fluoride (NaF)

  2. Sodium silicofluoride

  3. Hydrofluorosilicic acid

The last two, sodium silicofluoride and hydrofluorosilicic acid, are the compounds used for water fluoridation, with hydrofluorosilicic acid being the most commonly used additive, according to the CDC.

These are chemical byproducts of aluminum, steel, cement, phosphate, and nuclear weapons manufacturing. Such fluoride is manmade, and in this form, fluoride has no nutrient value and no health benefits whatsoever.

But there’s yet another tidbit that is not talked about openly, and that is the fact that these hazardous industrial wastes – the fluoride compounds actually added to your water -- have NEVER been fully tested to ascertain their full potential health hazard.

Fluoride is not only a poison, and is associated with Alzheimers disease and many other health hazards. Dr. Mercola has written extensively about this aspect of the fluoride issues as well.

It's supposed benefit is preventing tooth decay, but as Dr. Mercola has documented in his various articles on the subject, fluoride weakens tooth enamel, which can actually make teeth exposed to it even more suspectible to tooth decay and cavities. In addition to that, fluoride ingested in the body is unhealthy in many ways. This article by Dr. Mercola documents the health hazards of fluoride, including that fact that a tube of toothpaste contains enough fluoride to kill a child.

Dr. Mercola has written, that, “There are numerous health problems associated with the accumulation of fluoride in your body, such as: Hyperactivity and/or lethargy, Arthritis, Dental, fluorosis (staining and pitting of teeth), Lowered thyroid function, Lowered IQ, dementia, Disrupted immune system. Fluoride also causes genetic damage and cell death, inactivates at least 62 enzymes in your body, and accelerates the aging process.”

But it gets even worse. Remember, the fluoride added to the drinking water is a by-product of processing fertilizer. That fluoride might not only poison you and cause all the health problems associated with fluoride exposure, but it might also cause cancer. Dr. Mercola recently wrote about another unwelcome health risk associated with the processing of fertilizer that might be making it's way into our bodies: cancer-causing radioactive chemicals in the fertilizer.

Dr. Mercola wrote about how the radioactive chemicals from fertilizer have made their way into tobacco, something the cigarette makers have known since 1959, that might be the primary reason why cigarette smoking causes lung cancer. This may be in our food supply, because our food is grown on land where that fertilizer is used, and in our drinking water, when the fluoride by-product of that same fertilizer is added to the drinking water.

Dr. Mercola writes about the radioactive chemical, “The factor I'm talking about is polonium-210—a highly radioactive element1 that releases alpha particles as it decays. It's also chemically toxic.2 While alpha particles cannot penetrate deeply into your body, they can cause serious damage to cells they do come into contact with. While naturally present in small amounts in the environment, one of the primary sources of exposure is via calcium phosphate fertilizers, used on tobacco fields and food crops respectively.”

It's likely no coincidence that an investigation of contaminants in the municipal water supprtly in Houston, Texas found radioactive chemicals in the water there. Perhaps that pollution of the drinking water is a result of adding industrial-grade fertilizer by-product fluoride to the water there?

The more contaimnated drinking water and food grown from that fertilizer we drink and eat the more we are getting exposed to trace amounts of these cancer-causing chemicals, which build up in our body in sufficient quantities over time to cause cancer and other diseases.

This article just scratches the surface of this issues. Please read the articles linked from Dr.. Mercola's web site and also visit the web site for the Fluoride Action Network for more information on this isssue. The bottom line is, fluoride is a poison, not a necessary substance for life, and it has no health benefits (not even for our teeth) and causes numerous health problems. We really need to stop poisoning our water with this chemical. Did you also know, fluoride is an ingredient in rat poison? Why would anyone want that in our drinking water?
