Is Fluoride Good or Bad For You?
Maybe the most deadly household poisons are not on a shelf in the garage or under the kitchen sink. In the circles I run in you probably won’t hear anybody ask the questions, “Is fluoride good or bad?”, or, “Is fluoride a poison?” Many of us have been looking into this for a decade or so.
One of the Most Deadly Household Poisons: FLUORIDE
You know what I would do if I wanted to figure out how to slowly poison someone, painlessly, and without getting myself thrown in jail? Like, seriously. Let’s say you’re sick of your children. You wish your wife hadn’t had them, but they are too big to fit back in to from whence they came, and every time you drive them out to the wilderness and drop them off, they always somehow find their way back. Crying that they are hungry and their feet are bleeding. Argh.
Where was I going with this? Oh yeah. How fluoride is harmful enough to kill children…
Toothpaste and Tap Water.
Alright, so it would take a whole lot of both of these to kill even the smallest, sickly infant, depending on where you live and how tasty the toothpaste is. And also, I have never been certain that the bottled water is any better. But for the sake of this article, this scenario is going to have California tap water and Colgate Total with Triclosan (for larger, spunkier children).
Anyway, as I was saying, nobody is likely to die from a toothpaste overdose.
So Why Is Fluoride In Toothpaste?
By the way, I know that there is every kind of venomous toxicant one could even imagine in just about everything, everywhere, nowadays. It can scarcely be avoided. And there is fluoride in other things we consume as well. But today we are picking on toothpaste and tap water, okay? And maybe certain types of tea, if we have time…
Okay. So why is fluoride in toothpaste, even?
First, before anybody gets their panties in too much of a bunch…
Low concentrations of fluoride are actually naturally present in most water sources, including rain water (thanks, Wikipedia, I’m trusting you on this one), and there are small amounts of it in nearly all plants, everywhere. Also, there are substantial amounts of fluoride in tea leaves (increasing greatly as the leaves mature).
Fluoride is also said to be beneficial for bone growth, and as everyone knows, it is supposedly put in toothpaste because small doses of it are actually good for some things, including cavity prevention in teeth.
I am going to try, throughout this article to not be too “conspiratorial”, but I can’t promise anything. If you want to go right into the dark nitty gritty about the horrors surrounding fluoridation, go to this website.
Does Fluoride Toothpaste Prevent Cavities?
I will get to how fluoride is harmful shortly, but first…
It may fortify the teeth against the acid caused by bacteria and sugars in the mouth. It may harden enamel, sure. Even though I haven’t used toothpaste in 37 years, and haven’t had a cavity in 20. And there are many other things I would blame for my teeth not being in perfect condition than not using toothpaste 3 times a day for all these years. Small amounts of fluoride may be good. Larger amounts?
Very, very bad.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention puts fluoride on a very high pedestal, calling it “one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century”.
Being that they are a federal agency, them saying anything automatically makes me twitch with disbelief and think the exact opposite is probably true. But that’s me, and you can think whatever you choose to. And I will just leave that there. That’s another can o’ worms.
“So why’d you bring it up then, Craig?”
So Is Fluoride Good or Bad?
I know this article has gone from “Fluoride is one of the most deadly household poisons on the planet”, and “Is fluoride a poison you should use to kill your kids”, to, “It is good for teeth and bones, but is not deadly” in quite a hurry. But I’m not finished yet. Bear with me.
Okay, the fact of the matter is, I have found many integral sources passionately proclaiming a dazzling array of maladies from cancer to brain damage. The more sources I came across citing real medical and scientific data showing the horrors of what larger amounts of fluoride do to humans, the more my theory of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention being just another arm of the Marxist/globalist oligarchy rang certain.
They want you stupid, and over-fluoridating the things you consume and use is a nice, slow and sneaky way to do it, as they lie to you, telling you that it is, in fact, the greatest thing ever!
And that’s all I’ll say about that. For real, this time…
Don’t Kill Your Children
It was just a bit of humor.
How Fluoride Is Harmful
Too much fluoride is not good, and here’s why (Read this article for a much more in-depth exploration):
- weakens bones and teeth
- has adverse affects on neurodevelopment in children
- causes skeletal fluorosis
- Nephrotoxicity (poisoning of the kidneys)
- causes thyroid damage
- fluoride is a documented neurotoxin. It causes brain damage!
- May cause cancer (osteosarcoma), depending on whether you read bureaucratic government studies, or non-government scientific studies)
- a few other things that I couldn’t 100% verify…
Fluoride-Free Toothpaste Brands
Whatsay we list toothpaste brands without fluoride. In fact, why don’t I list a couple of fluoride free toothpaste brands and throw affiliate links on them and get a little back door action from it? That would be brilliant! I’m glad I thought of that just now and didn’t cunningly plan it at all before I started writing this.
The winner of The Best Natural Toothpaste Without Fluoride Cup, as far as I can deduce, based on a bit of research and ratings on Amazon, is:
