19 million adults in the US suffer from depression. We don’t put Prozac or Xanax in our water.
21.9 million adults in the US are diabetic. We don’t put insulin in our water.
71 million adults in the US have high cholesterol. We don’t put statins in our water.
78.6 million adults in the US are obese. We don’t put FDA-approved weight loss medication Alli in our water.
So why fluoride? Why is this any different from any other medication? Because, honestly, that is what it is. Fluoride doesn’t protect our water, it doesn’t make it cleaner or more pure. Fluoride is added to our water for one reason and one reason only: dental hygiene.
I should be able to choose what goes in my body, whether that is fluoride, GMOs, vaccines, or anything else. Yet, the world is making it more and more difficult for me to be educated about those issues and then being able to make those choices; in fact, I will go so far as to say my freedom to my body is being infringed upon.
Am I going a little too far there?
At least one national organization, the John Birch Society, has been against adding fluoride to water supplies since the 1950s. In 1992, one of their representatives went on record as saying “compulsory mass medication is medically evil, as well as socialistic.” JBS protests adding fluoride to the water not because of medical reasons, but because of freedom issues. “We pointed out that chlorine treats the water, but fluoride treats the people … Our attitude was simple: If you want fluoride in your water, go get some and add it, but don’t force me — or have government force me — to take what I don’t want.”
A huge issue with mass-medication (besides the glaring violation of human rights) is that individual dosage is impossible. We don’t know how much water any one person is drinking a day. We don’t know how much extra fluorinated water a person is getting when they shower, bathe, prepare meals, etc. We also don’t know how each individual person may react to fluoride. When your doctor puts you on a medication – whether it be for diabetes, cholesterol, anxiety, etc. – chances are he’s going to choose a dose that is right for YOU. Chances are, the dose that works for your body is not going to be the same dose that works for John Doe down the street. Why is this one chemical the obvious exception?
Another scary thing? Water fluorination can set the precedence for other mass-medication.
Don’t think it will happen?
Did you know that since adding fluoride to water supplies became widespread and accepted, multiple self-appointed population-control gurus have proposed adding birth control to the water as well? Read the White House’s Czar John Holdren’s book, Ecoscience. He talks about not only adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods and involuntary fertility control, but also forced abortions and a planetary regime to control resources.
Physiologist Melvin Ketchel, of the Tufts University School of Medicine, suggested that a sterilant could be developed that had a very specific action; for example, preventing implantation of the fertilized ovum. He proposed that it be used to reduce fertility levels by adjustable amounts, anywhere from five to 75 percent, rather than to sterilize the whole population completely. In this way, fertility could be adjusted from time to time to meet a society’s changing needs, and there would be no need to provide an antidote.
And where would this sterilant be? In our food and water.
It sounds crazy, but where is the line? If we let them mass-medicate us with fluoride, what stops that from opening a gateway for other chemicals, other medications? When do we stand up and say “no”, when do we fight for our rights and our freedoms? If we don’t do it now, with something as “benign” as water fluoridation, when WILL we do it? When it’s too late, when we’re too in over our heads?
