Review: Water fluoridation for the prevention of dental caries

The chemical triclosan has been linked to cancer-cell growth and disrupted development in animals. Regulators are reviewing whether it’s safe to put in soap, cutting boards and toys. Consumer companies are phasing it out. Minnesota voted in May to ban it in many products.
At the same time, millions of Americans are putting it in their mouths every day, by way of a top-selling toothpaste that uses the antibacterial chemical to head off gum disease -- Colgate-Palmolive Co.’s Total.
Total is safe, Colgate says, citing the rigorous Food and Drug Administration process that led to the toothpaste’s 1997 approval as an over-the-counter drug. A closer look at that application process, however, reveals that some of the scientific findings Colgate put forward to establish triclosan’s safety in toothpaste weren’t black and white -- and weren’t, until this year, available to the public.
Psychiatric drugs lead to the deaths of over 500,000 people aged 65 and over annually in the West, a Danish scientist says. He warns the benefits of these drugs are “minimal,” and have been vastly overstated.
Research director at Denmark’s Nordic Cochrane Centre, Professor Peter Gøtzsche, says the use of most antidepressants and dementia drugs could be halted without inflicting harm on patients. The Danish scientist’s views were published in the British Medical Journal on Tuesday.
His scathing analysis will likely prove controversial among traditional medics. However, concern is mounting among doctors and scientists worldwide that psychiatric medication is doing more harm than good. In particular, they say antipsychotic drugs have been overprescribed to many dementia patients in a bid to calm agitated behavior.

In today's world, fluoride is hard to avoid completely. Here's how to detox your body.
Adding fluoride to the water supplies has been called murder on a grand scale . But whether or not your town adds it to your drinking water, you're probably ingesting this toxin every day.
You're exposed to fluoride if you take prescription drugs like Prozac, swim in pools, or sit in hot tubs. It's in conventional produce like lettuce, and commercial bread and bakery products. It may be in beverages like iced tea, wine, and beer made with municipal water, or in infant formula. And of course it's in toothpaste. It may even sneak into your food from Teflon coated pots and pans.
Minimizing your exposure to fluoride is important. But in today's world, this toxin is hard to avoid completely. That's why it's critical to detox your body from fluoride.

The National Health Federation (NHF) participated in an FDA-arranged conference call earlier this week in preparation for the U.S. position to be taken at the upcoming meeting of the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses to be held in Bali, Indonesia, this late November. The topic was the proposed draft Nutrient Reference Values (NRVs) for labeling purposes in the guidelines on nutrition labeling. This is a joint FAO/WHO food standards program purportedly designed to protect children at risk from malnutrition and wasting by using fortified infant formula , follow-up formula, cereals, and also to set NRVs for infants and children. Unfortunately, Codex is allowing "fortification" with GMO-contaminated ingredients and that turned out to be the focus of the conference call.

It’s hard to know what is healthy to consume these days with so many mixed messages in the media. Today we want to dive more into the topic of fluoride.
Many water sources and toothpastes contain fluoride. Is it harmless? How much do we really know about Fluoride and its long term effects.
Many states and countries put Fluoride in the drinking water to reduce cavities. The official story is that the amount of fluoride put into the drinking water is safe for consumption. But do we really know what amount is ‘Safe’?

Fluoride is put in your drinking water ‘for your teeth’ without your consent, but did you know that it could also be calcifying your arteries?
A few years ago, we reported on a study evaluating a new diagnostic technology that inadvertently revealed a link between fluoride exposure and coronary artery disease. Our report stirred up quite a lot of controversy and criticism, even leading one of the most respected figures in alternative medicine (deservedly so) – Dr. Russell Blaylock — to call us out on Infowars for our allegedly sophomoric interpretation of the following article: “Association of vascular fluoride uptake with vascular calcification and coronary artery following article disease.” As one can see, the study’s results revealed a hitherto largely unknown connection between fluoride exposure, coronary artery disease and cardiovascular events (e.g. heart attack).

Abby Martin takes with a look at the 50 year long practice of water fluoridation in America, outlining adverse health effects and breaking the myth that it helps prevent tooth decay.
“The U.S. has more people drinking fluoridated water than the rest of the world combined.”

The National Health Federation (NHF) is providing the wake-up call for the World right now. Like the founders of America, were the early voices not raised persistently and aggressively compelling others of like-minded spirit to action there would be no America. NHF is waging war on the front lines to protect the terrain of the human soil, the modern battle-ground, and the terrain that influences the sanctity of our bodies and our children's bodies.
In the past people said the pen was mightier than the sword. In the future, it will be the chip that is mightier than the sword. The economy, not weaponry, is the new criterion for a superpower...In the future, it is clear that a superpower can maintain its status only through economic might (versus weaponry as in the past), and that in turns stems from science and technology."

We are in desperate times and many people are completely oblivious to the fact. Rats that eat GMO food have been shown to grow deadly tumors. Our water is often tainted with plastic leaching BPA , pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and other toxins - not to mention the intentional injection of mind-numbing fluoride into our drinking water 'for our teeth.' Barium salts, and aluminum have been documented as aerosols sprayed into the atmosphere for mysterious reasons which range from communication enhancements, to weather control, and, what is often termed "conspiracies.'
Our air, food, and water appear to be tainted with poisons putting public health at risk. But, this is getting creepier every minute. Today with the accelerating exponential growth in technology, so called experts, are experimenting with Frankenstein-like potions to be sold to an uninformed public. New vaccines combining technology with genetic engineering are being designed and approved today, for quicker-greater yield. Such is the case with the soon to be flu shots, for example.
