Is the Government Poisoning You?

Throughout our lives, we’ve all been cheated, taken advantage of and lied to by the government in one way or another.

Whether it’s through absurd taxation, the breaching of our constitutional rights or corrupt political regimes, we all know the feeling … but have been able to do very little about it.

However, this time, they’ve gone too far.

You see, most Americans are completely in the dark about this … but I want to tell you about the disturbing way our government is poisoning you and your family.

I would like to make myself clear. This is very serious and should not be taken lightly.

This toxic poison causes numerous forms of cancer, severe brain damage, infertility, arthritis and a host of other dangerous diseases.

Yet, the government has not only exposed us to this toxin … but it has also intentionally flooded the water supply with this silent killer.

Is this a grand "social engineering" project that purposefully creates a great way to increase disease (and profits) for conventional medicine? I’ll let you decide — but you should know the facts.

The Silent Killer

Before 1945, a little known toxin called "fluoride" was properly regarded as a universal pollutant.

As a byproduct of the aluminum and fertilizer industries, fluoride waste destroyed all crops and animals in its path, wreaking havoc on the environment and anyone exposed to it.

These toxic consequences led to many lawsuits and a public opinion — which, agreed upon, could eliminate fluoride completely to protect the environment and health of the people.

However, as history repeats itself time and time again, all bets are off when money and power come into play.

It all started with Alcoa (AA), a mega-producer of aluminum founded by Andrew Mellon, who is now considered one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the history of the United States.

Alcoa was not only the largest aluminum producer in the country, but also the largest producer of toxic fluoride waste materials.

Mellon, being the renegade businessman he was, realized that instead of simply dumping this waste product, he could replace the disposal expense with vast profits.

So, on Sept. 29, 1939, Alcoa sought out and "heavily funded" scientist Gerald J. Cox.

Cox began this fluoride scheme by fluoridating rats in his lab and mysteriously concluding that "fluoride reduces cavities" … though he could not provide proof to back up his claim.


A very important note here — At the time, Andrew Mellon held the position of the Secretary of the Treasury, which holds direct jurisdiction over the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS).

Furthermore, in 1944, Mellon appointed Oscar Ewing as head of the department. It’s important to note that Ewing was one of the top executives at Mellon’s Alcoa aluminum, where his salary was upward of $10 million in today’s dollars.


Mellon and Ewing were now in a position to take over the policies of the Public Health Service.

Under Ewing’s watch, a national fluoridation campaign rapidly materialized — spearheaded by the USPHS.

Ewing didn’t take long to choose Edward Bernays, nephew of Sigmund Freud, as his PR man for the campaign.

Using classical Freudian principles, Bernays maintained that a well-oiled propaganda machine could make the public believe practically anything, even the exact opposite of what had been already proven by all existing scientific research.

This is exactly what Ewing needed in the case of fluoridation.

‘An Unapproved Drug’

Over the following years, three important events took place:

  • The American Dental Association received over $50 million in federal funds to adopt fluoridation.
  • Procter & Gamble (PG) released fluoride in its Crest Toothpaste, claiming it was "an important milestone in medicine" without any evidence to support their claims. It was a marketing ploy that eventually brought in billions of dollars.
  • The World Health Organization established an Expert Committee in Geneva to study fluoridation. At least five out of seven committee members had promoted fluoridation in their own countries for personal profit.

‘Like being against motherhood or apple pie’

With both corporate America and the government pushing fluoridation, opposition to fluoride soon became taboo … it was like being against motherhood or apple pie.

Fast-forward to today, and most people are completely in the dark about this poison running rampant in our water supply.

So what exactly are the dangers?

Still to this day, fluoride used for water fluoridation does not have FDA approval and is considered by the FDA as an "unapproved drug."

Adverse effects from fluoride ingestion include:

  • Chemicals used in fluoridation are byproducts of manufactured aluminum and fertilizer and contain a high concentration of toxins and heavy metals such as arsenic, lead and chromium. All of these toxins are proven to cause cancer.
  • According to the National Research Council (NRC), fluoride can damage the brain. Studies by the EPA show fluoridated water to cause dementia-like effects and lowering of the IQ.
  • Fluoride damages sperm and increases the rate of infertility (N.J. Chinoy and M.V. Narayana, 1994)
  • Fluoride negatively affects thyroid function. In the Ukraine, P.P. Bachinskii found a lowering of thyroid function, among otherwise healthy people. Symptoms of hypothyroidism include depression, fatigue, weight gain, muscle and joint pains, increased cholesterol levels, and heart disease.
  • Fluoride causes symptoms of arthritis. Skeletal fluorosis (a fluoride-induced bone and joint disease) mimic the symptoms of arthritis.
  • Fluoride damages bone. An early fluoridation trial (Newburgh-Kingston 1945-’55) revealed a twofold increase in bone defects among children in the fluoridated community. Hundreds of studies are shown with direct correlations between fluoride use and osteoporosis.
  • Austrian researchers proved in the 1970s that as little as 1 part fluoride per million parts water (ppm) concentration could disrupt DNA repair enzymes by 50%. When DNA can’t repair damaged cells, we get old faster!

And you know what’s the real kicker …  fluoride doesn’t even prevent tooth decay and may in fact make it even worse!

But hey, whatever it takes to keep you coming back to the dentist.

"When historians come to write about this period, they will single out fluoridation as the single biggest mistake in public policy that we’ve ever had." — Paul Connett, Ph.D. in Biochemistry"

So what can you do?

It’s simple actually. Ditch the fluoride toothpaste and grab a water filter that gets rid of the fluoride content.

Fluoride-eliminating filters cost a little more than regular filters, but the cost dwarfs in comparison to the potential medical implications that fluoridated water pose … and the massive medical bills that would come along with it.

An easy fix, for extraordinary results.

Happy and healthy investing,

P.S. Occasionally I like to share some "uncommon wisdom" about health-related topics. For related articles, feel free to check out something that’s "Even Worse for You Than Smoking," how breakfast could become "Your Ticket to Fat Loss and More Energy" and one way to "Add 182 Hours to Your Life Each Year."

Your thoughts on “Is the Government Poisoning You?”

  1. It is interesting in reading this email string that the two most opposed to the negative research on Fluoride are health professionals. Cognitive dissonance comes to mind. GMO foods are perfectly safe too because the FDA says so based on the research given them by Monsanto.
    Cheers, I’m off to drink some Kool-Aide for breakfast, the dye is good for me.

  2. The epa is a major source of incompetence that impacts our water supply. They participate and Approve “falsified reports” and mismanage financial trust funds put in place to correct environmental conditions.
    BEWARE OF THE epa !

  3. The following are some good sources of information on fluoride and artificial water fluoridation: the Fluoride Action Network, Declan Waugh’s work, the books The Case Against Fluoride and The Fluoride Deception, the 2006 US National Research Council report Fluoride in Drinking Water: A Scientific Review of EPA’s Standards, and the peer-reviewed journal Fluoride.

    The forced-fluoridation experiment 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 treatment, is entirely indiscriminate, results in the random dosing of residents since the fluoride dose received from water and other sources 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 needs to be. 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 ham-fisted method of drug delivery ever devised.

    Medicating public water supplies with fluoridation chemicals is especially egregious, because fluoride is a cumulative poison with a half life in the body of around 20 years, 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 fluoridation chemicals which are used are industrial grade rather than pharmaceutical grade, and fluoride is not biodegradable. The forced-fluoridation experiment is immoral, illegal, irrational, archaic, pseudoscientific, and not worth the risk.

  4. If Doctors, Dentists and Govt Health Bodies are so passionate about giving us water to drink with a little bit of poison in it (i.e. fluoride), they should give fluoridated water away for free at their doctor,dental surgeries and hospitals, with an informed consent information sheet explaining exactly what they have added to the water ( including small amounts of Arsenic,Mercury,Lead Heavy Metals Etc ). Our tap water should not be fluoridated unless 100% of the population gives consent.

  5. Fluoride is one of the main ingredients in anti depressants.
    Do you really think the government cares this much about our dental hygiene?

  6. Fluoride is a bio accumulative rat poison. Even Harold Hodge knew they were using a rat poison.

    “Appointed initially in biochemistry, Hodge pursued dental research including the toxicity of fluoride, as there was a huge stigma against using fluoride for the public health. (It was, after all, a RAT POISON.)”

    And we allow our children to bathe, shower, and swim in this stuff? AND brush their teeth with it? Just inches from their brain?

    Harold Hodge was a real character. He also enjoyed secretly injecting patients with plutonium and uranium. The US government settled with the victims’ families, paying $400,000 per family.

  7. General Ripper (with thanks to Dr Strangelove)

    Usually your articles are fairly balanced and reasonably well thought out but you went way
    off the tracks on this one. I’ve been in health care for 30 years and there probably hasn’t been an additive
    that’s been studied more than fluoride. Your citations are poor, slanted, and in some cases (as in the case of fluoride not lessening tooth decay) completely wrong. Fluoride isn’t perfect, dosage is very important, but by and
    large it’s served the public well. Before fluoride, teeth related problems were one of the leading causes of not only chronic pain and infection, but death. Fluoride is naturally found in many water sources around the country
    and world. I’m not sure if you’ve been swayed by someone with an axe to grind in the naturopath community, but you would do your readers a better service by doing your homework, and looking at the vast majority of recent scientific literature. Personally, I’m not an advocate of fluoridating water supplies, even though many in public health would disagree, but topical use of fluoride is very prudent for most people.

  8. It is illegal for a doctor or a dentist to force anyone to take a drug or a chemical.
    It should be illegal for the government as well. Fluoride should not be added to drinking water, which forces everyone to consume it against their will. It affect the brain (lowered IQ), the bones (fractured hips), the thyroid gland, etc.

    The world has learned the truth that fluoridation is ineffective for teeth and dangerous to health, so only 5% of the world and only 3% of Europe fluoridate their drinking water, more in the U.S. than the rest of the world combined. Data from the World Health Organization shows that the tooth decay rate in Europe is as good or better than any fluoridated country including the U.S., with over 70% fluoridation.

  9. During WWII the Germans experimented w/fluoride on the death camp prisoners. They found, among other things, that fluoride made them docile, and non-combative. Fluoride is a deadly poison, along w/Chlorine, Bromine, and Iodine. Iodine is added to salt, all over the world.

  10. What’s next Brad, denying the moon landing?

    Everything in your bullet list is either factually wrong, or has been thoroughly debunked years ago. You seem to prefer to listen to science-free conspiracy theorists rather than to guide your actions on hard data.

    First of all, water fluoridation is not a federal government issue–the decision whether or not to fluoridate is done at the local community level. It’s the ultimate in small government decision making. The federal government (CDC) only provides guidelines for optimal water levels, and the EPA regulates maximum levels. (There are some water systems that draw water from wells that contain natural very high levels of fluoride that must be defluoridated before they can be used for public drinking water.)

    I am a dentist, on the downhill side of 60 years old. Over my 35-year career I have seen the changes in people’s mouths as fluoride has been introduced. I used to see teens with a mouthful of cavities, and almost all my elderly patients had full dentures. Now both of those are rare. I regularly see teens who have never had a cavity, and most of my old patients still have their natural teeth. Decay rates have plummeted since the advent of water fluoridation. It’s hurts my wallet, but I fully support it as a health measure.

    Just one example, your first bullet. The fluoride chemicals used in water fluoridation (Fluorosilicic acid, sodium fluorosilicate and sodium fluoride) are not “waste products” containing high levels of heavy metals. They are manufactured specifically for water fluoridation and are held to the same standards for heavy metals as are all drugs and food additives. The “toxic waste” myth has been around for decades and keeps popping up, but it is false.

    Here’s another: the IQ studies that you cite, again, have been debunked. The Chinese study you cite is remarkably badly designed. The groups studied live in heavily industrialized areas of China and receive huge exposures of fluoride (from smelting and coal operations) compared to water fluoridation in the US. In fact the control groups in the studies (who are supposed to be fluoride-free) received 3 to 4 times the approved US levels; the test groups up to 40 times the approved US levels. You’re accepting one badly-done Chinese study as gospel while ignoring hundreds of well-designed studies in the US attesting to fluoride’s safety. We have almost 70 years of experience with hundreds of millions of people receiving fluoride, and no studies in the US have shown harmful effects.

    Arthritis and bone damage: both debunked. They are seen with long-term exposure to very high levels of fluoride (above 10ppm for decades). They are a sign of fluoride toxicity that is not seen at therapeutic (1ppm) levels. The science is unequivocal on this.

    Follow the money. The American Dental Association recommends and promotes fluoride, even though it reduces dentists’ income. Water fluoridation is an engineering challenge, yet the American Waterworks Association also recommends it–what possible incentive could they have to participate in this “conspiracy” that supposedly took place 80 years ago?

    The history of how fluoridation was adopted is quite different than what you stated, and is a classic public health story of a dentist (H. Trendley Dean), after years of careful data gathering, discovering the link between low levels of decay in 21 towns in Colorado and natural fluoride in their well water. These studies were used as the evidence for the first large-scale study, where one city (Grand Rapids, MI) received fluoride and another matched control city did not. Decay rates fell 46% in Grand Rapids and stayed the same in the control city. Here’s a link to the original study:

    Forgive me for seeming angry, but this kind of “information” leads ill-informed town councils to stop water fluoridation. Studies show that the decay rates in these towns increase as a result, but nothing else gets better: IQ’s don’t increase, they don’t live longer, their arthritis doesn’t go away, and their thyroids function just as before. You are doing harm by publishing this misinformation.
