Dentistry Journal Says Drinking Fluoridated Tap Water Helps You Avoid The Dentist

The latest rubbish out of General Dentistry, the Academy of General Dentistry's (AGD) peer-reviewed clinical journal, states that the controlled addition of a fluoride compound to public water supplies is considered to be the most cost-effective way to prevent cavities and fight tooth decay.

"Fluoride makes the entire tooth structure more resistant to decay and promotes remineralization, which aids in repairing early decay before damage is even visible," said C.H. Chu, BDS, PhD, MAGD, ABGD, lead author of the study. "Studies have confirmed the most effective source of fluoride to be water fluoridation."

Aside from its confirmed toxicity to almost every system of the human body, fluoride has never been found to conclusively remineralize or repair tooth decay in any study. Perhaps Chu should source the exact studies that validate his statements, because it is virtually impossible to find any independent study (not funded by the dental industry) which correlates the level of fluoride in water and the prevention of dental caries.

In 2005, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), which funded Chester Douglass's $1.3 million study investigated why the Harvard School of Dental Medicine epidemiologist told federal officials he found no significant correlation between fluoridated water and osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. Douglass, who serves as editor in chief for the industry-funded Colgate Oral Care Report, supervised research for a 2001 doctoral thesis that concluded boys exposed to fluoridated water at a young age were more likely to get the cancer.

"Fluoride, the most consumed drug in the USA, is deliberately added to 2/3 of public water supplies theoretically to reduce tooth decay, but with no scientifically-valid evidence proving safety or effectiveness," says lawyer Paul Beeber, President, New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation.

Water fluoridation is perhaps the biggest scientific fraud ever to be promoted by national and international Governments. Fluoride has been linked to osteoporosis, cancer, auto-immune diseases, and even very small concentrations can disrupt DNA repair enzymes by 50%.

Dr. Yiamouyiannis (former science director of the National Health Federation) cited a 1990 study of 541,000 cases of osteoporosis that found a definite connection between hip fractures in women over 65 and fluoride levels. The study was written up in JAMA. Several other major studies are cited, massive amounts of research, again all reaching the same conclusion - the undeniable correlation of fluoridation with osteoporosis and hip fracture in the elderly. Dr. Yiamouyiannis also found a 5% increase in all types of cancers in fluoridated communities.

Food and Drug Administration (FDA) scientists reported a close correlation between decreasing total fertility rates in women between ages of 10 and 49, and increasing fluoride levels. They also reported that a review of all of the animal studies done to date shows that fluoride adversely affects fertility in most animal species.

Even the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology has classified Fluoride as an unapproved dental medicament due to its high toxicity.

Yet, according to Cynthia Sherwood, spokesperson for the AGD, "drinking tap water to receive fluoride is safe, and it's easier on your wallet than going to the dentist for a filling."

Authoring her latest article "Drinking tap water may help you avoid dentist's drill", Stefanie Schroeder from the AGD's public relations team, stated "The second-most effective source of fluoride is varnish....varnishes that contain sodium fluoride adhere to tooth surfaces when saliva is present, providing an excellent fluoride treatment."

So if you don't ingest enough poisonous sodium fluoride in your tap water, her advice is to be sure to get your teeth varnished with concentrated versions of this toxin.

"Keeping fluoride in the mouth enhances its ability to arrest demineralization and promote remineralization, and varnishes are better for this purpose than fluoridated drinking water or toothpaste. Fluoride varnishes are typically used for patients who don't receive enough fluoride from other sources," she adds.

The absolute quackery of dentistry (and their so-called studies) hits a new high with statements such as these. They can basically say anything they want without any scientific validation and expect the public to buy it as fact.

Go figure, toxic fillings and poisonous varnishes are approved for your teeth, yet natural supplements which reverse tooth decay are banned.

And they're targeting our children. Why not, the brainwashing has to start at a young age right? "The bland flavor and simplicity of the varnish method also makes it well-tolerated by young children and special needs patients," Dr. Chu said.

Dr. Chu looked at the effectiveness of fluoride in specialty milk and salt products, toothpaste, mouthrinse and gum, but found that only the water fluoridation and varnish methods had the ability to reduce cavities by more than 30 percent.

30 PERCENT?? If that were true, then why don't we see a 30 percent reduction in cavities in countries with fluoridated water supplies?

I have a message for Dr. Chu. If you can provide even one independent study that can scientifically validate how sodium fluoride through drinking water or varnish can reduce cavities by 30 percent, I will eat my sweatshirt and yours!

I highly recommend Ramiel Nagel's book "Cure Tooth Decay" to discover how to prevent dental caries naturally.
