More fluoridated products than you can poke a stick at

8 February 2017 – last modified 2021

I sincerely believe the best thing I can do for my teeth is drink copious amounts of artificially fluoridated water and other drinks with high fluoride concentrations, cook food with fluoridated water in Teflon-coated pots and pans, wash my clothes in fluoridated water, take showers with fluoridated water, eat processed foods made with fluoridated water and sprayed with fluoride-based pesticides, irrigated with fluoridated water, and fertilised with superphosphate containing residual fluoride, have my home fumigated with sulfuryl fluoride, use extra strength fluoridated toothpaste, fluoridated mouthwash, and fluoridated dental floss, have my teeth treated with fluoride varnish and fluoride gel, take fluoride tablets or fluoride drops or fluoridated salt or fluoridated milk or suck fluoridated lozenges or chew fluoridated gum each and every day I do not believe I am getting enough fluoride, and if I am unlucky enough to need any fillings despite my fluoride devotion, all dental materials (i.e. any bonding agents, liners, glass ionomers, giomers, composites, sealants, or cements) used will have added fluoride. If I am lucky enough to be given another fluorinated anaesthetic or other fluorinated drug which releases free fluoride ions in my body, well that will just be an extra special bonus. The best thing of all is that fluoride is cumulative, so a large proportion of the fluoride I consume will never leave me; my devotion is reciprocated. If anyone knows of any other artificially fluoridated products please let me know, because I wouldn’t want to miss out. I truly believe the reason there are so many fluoride products, at very reasonable prices, is the enormous love fluoridationist dentists, public health officials, politicians, and phosphate fertiliser companies have for strangers’ teeth. It has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that phosphate fertiliser companies can’t get rid of enough of the shit, or that it is a major industrial pollutant which many industries are happy to sweep under the rug, or that it is a convenient distraction from the real cause of dental cavities (i.e. sugar), or that dumping it into public water supplies enables the pretence of doing something to help poor children while actually harming them.

The forced fluoridation human experiment

Seriously, though, the forced fluoridation human experiment is the crime of deliberately dumping highly toxic industrial fluoride pollution into public water supplies. This abuse of human rights and violation of the Nuremberg Code is committed under the pretext of reducing dental caries, especially in children, and most of all in disadvantaged children. It started in Grand Rapids, Michigan on January 25, 1945, and to this day more people are directly subjected to it in the US than in the rest of the world combined – Africa, Asia, and Europe have overwhelmingly rejected it. The fluoridation chemicals used are hexafluorosilicic acid (H2SiF6), sodium fluorosilicate (Na2SiF6), and sodium fluoride (NaF), waste products from the phosphate rock and aluminium ore mining industries.

Forced fluoridation is medical malpractice on an industrial scale. Fluoridation chemicals are the only medications which are delivered via public water supplies. Medicating public water supplies with any chemical violates the human rights and medical ethics principle of informed consent to medical intervention, is entirely indiscriminate, results in the random dosing of residents since exposure to the chemical is uncontrolled, and is environmentally irresponsible because the vast majority of tap water is not ingested, so the environmental load is vastly greater than it would be if the drug were delivered by conventional means. Medicating public water supplies means that politicians are subjecting everyone to treatment which no doctor can legally impose on anyone, and is surely the most SPAM-fisted method of drug delivery ever devised.

Medicating public water supplies with fluoridation chemicals is especially heinous, because fluoride is a cumulative poison which can do permanent harm, there was no good quality scientific research which indicated that forced fluoridation was anything but harmful and useless in the 1940s and there still isn’t any, the best quality scientific research which has been conducted indicates that forced fluoridation is in fact both harmful and useless, the fluoride pollution which is used is industrial grade rather than pharmaceutical grade, and fluoride is not biodegradable. The forced fluoridation experiment is inhumane, authoritarian, violent, illegal, irrational, backward, divisive, pseudoscientific, unsustainable, a scam, a triumph of marketing and thuggery over sanity, and all risk, no reward for those subjected to it.
