US Government Lowers Fluoride Levels Without Recognizing That It Is Harmful

Despite insisting that the prior level of fluoridation in America was totally safe, the country’s government has lowered the levels of fluoride in the water supply for the first time in 50 years.

There have been a number of studies in recent years proving that fluoride is in fact dangerous. However, the announcement that the levels will be lowered mentions nothing of these studies, and instead suggests the levels are being lowered because more people get fluoride from other places.

According to the press release:

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services today released the final Public Health Service (PHS) recommendation for the optimal fluoride level in drinking water to prevent tooth decay. The new recommendation is for a single level of 0.7 milligrams of fluoride per liter of water. It updates and replaces the previous recommended range (0.7 to 1.2 milligrams per liter) issued in 1962.

One mainstream science journal formally listed fluoride as a neurotoxins, while an even more highly publicised study from Harvard showed that children in high fluoride areas have significantly lower IQ’s than children who are not exposed to the chemical.

Fluoride is one of the most harmful chemicals in existence and is a daily part of life for most people in the western world. Fluoride is a carcinogenic waste product of aluminum. It is also the main ingredient in rat poison, nerve gas and Prozac.

Until recently, mainstream sources have insisted that fluoride was safe, and that to suggest otherwise was a “conspiracy theory”. However, a recent peer reviewed medical journal has now added six additional substances into its classification of neurotoxins, and one of them is fluoride.

here are temporary solutions that you can take to safeguard yourself against this attack. There are water filtration systems available that work using reverse osmosis. The reverse osmosis system will probably be cheaper and more environmentally friendly than buying bottled water on a daily basis.

There are also different toothpaste companies which offer fluoride free toothpaste, these products can usually be found online or at natural food stores. All of these steps are good for individual protection, however awareness about the dangers of fluoride is extremely important. The facts and evidence are all out in public, even the very institutions that once stood behind these malicious practices are now starting to backtrack and warn against them. Fluoride must be removed from the public water supply and from dental practices.
