It's interesting that this study doesn't even mention any of the new, growing concerns being shared by some leading researchers concerning the even more alarming health effects of fluoride, and I have to wonder whether Dr. Joseph Mercola is in the bag for someone. No mention of the possible connections between fluoridation in biomatter and spontaneous combustion? We're talking about the possible long-term effects of extreme mega-doses of fluoride upon a child's IQ, which is probably very low anyway considering kids these days, instead of looking at the very real danger of immediate death?

How many of you really understand fluoride's history after all? How many of you know that it was originally developed as nitroglycofluoride, and that for years it was one of the most stable chemical explosives available on the battlefield. During World War I, NGF bombs and artillery shells, as they were known, devastated huge swaths of the French countryside. But there was an interesting side effect to these that nobody had expected: soldiers caught on the outer periphery of a blast, soldiers who otherwise would have eventually succumbed to devastating infections in their wounds, began surviving at disproportionately high rates. Which is good if you're an injured solider, but bad if you're trying to win a war. And so the best British and American minds, along with a French mind, embarked upon a journey of exploration and discovery and discovered something shocking: fluoride, while highly explosive when combined with certain other chemicals like nitro and glyco, also had properties that made it very beneficial to human tissue, particularly bones and teeth.

Can you imagine their shock? It was like when they'd discovered penicillin by accident, those early, happy years before they'd learned about how penicillin causes impotence. And so they did some quick retinkering to the  nitroglycofluoride formula, pulled out the fluoride and replaced it with cerin, and presto! Really good explosions, high-quality maiming, big win.

But what to do with fluoride? How to realize its unique benefits? It wasn't long before they hit upon the idea of putting it into drinking water to help improve oral health. England in particular was experiencing a tooth crisis at the time, was down to a level of barely 5 percent of usable teeth in the entire population. With  fluoride, they reversed a long, downward trend within a span of merely three generations, and England today enjoys tooth usability rates well into the 40, 45 percent range. Other countries, too, benefited, though perhaps to not such a high degree.

But nobody knew then about radiation. See, radiation wouldn't be discovered for another few decades, at Hiroshima, and so nobody then that, while stable when removed from other chemical agents,  fluorideitself retains a very high latent flash point that is especially susceptible to radiation. And we're not even talking about huge doses of radiation like atom bombs. We're talking about latent radiation, the sort of radiation that is given off by microwaves, by airport scanners, by x-ray machines. We're talking a world in which every human being on earth has been essentially turned into a walking bomb that is merely one millirad of radiation exposure away from going off. It's happened already, numerous times. Some have suggested, in fact, that the explosion at Fukushima was fluoride-based. Is it small wonder, then, that the world government and UN have worked so hard to keep this secret?

Or maybe it's more sinister than that. Maybe they want to turn their citizens into walking fluoride bombs, so that if the citizenry ever does rise up to throw off tyranny, they can release a carefully calibrated radiation transmission, perhaps from an orbital satellite, and kill us all. It's something to think about.

Afraid of fluoridated water, but perfectly fine with water with alcohol in it? Alcohol is a very dangerous chemical, and causes far more problems than fluoride. Here you are, complaining about trace amounts of fluoride, and poisoning your brain and liver with alcohol.

Lolpwnt: WTF kind of "baffle them with bullshiat" pseudo-chemistry is this crap? You probably fall for all the "quantum healing through science!" type infomercial stuff don't you?

Cerin, glyco, nitro? Not chemicals. As an organic chemist I weep for humanity when this complete bullshiat is accepted as truth by anyone.

Of course you're an organic chemist, what else could you be? An inorganic chemist? You can't fool me. Computers aren't that smart.

Fluoride is just a cover so you ignore the dihydrogen monoxide in our water systems.

forcebender: His wikipedia entry is quite interesting:

To sum:  Pretty much thinks we should bring medical practices back to the 18th century.  And he has the leading website for alternative fringe 'medical' theories.

Hang on a second. This guy's one of the few brilliant minds trying to make sure that sheeple wake up and smell the AIDS conspiracy: HIV doesn't cause AIDS. I mean, look at the letters, even. They've got, like, nothing in common. Just an I. How can 3 letters become 4, mostly different letters?

WhoopAssWayne: Mcaffolder: I applaud your trolling powers... but everyone here knows that both parties sold out "the people" a long long long time ago

I don't disagree with you and I'm not trolling.

It's too bad you aren't trolling, as the alternative reflects poorly on your intellect.

Yeah, and MMS will totally cure your cancer and acne at the same time, and the FDA is warning you away because they're conspiring with Big Pharma to keep it a secret (totally not because mixing it with fruit juice turns it into bleach - ignore the lies)!

I grew up in Newburgh NY, one of the first towns to have fluoridated water.

I have a Masters degree... from Harvard.

Draw your own conclusions.

Even if the government has been poisoning the population for decades, there's no real benefit in pointing it out. They'll do whatever the f*** they want to do and we'll continue to have no to limited recourse. They are completely unaccountable to us and they can poison whoever the f*** they want to poison. Go ahead and try to sue them. Go ahead and write them a sharply worded letter. You don't have a say in this government, yet this is exactly who the liberal dumbasses want to have all the power in this country.

Well damn, they used to feed us tablets of the sshiat, on top of the stupid rinse shiat, on top of the shiat in the water.

I bet that's why I say shiat all the time isn't it?

And got a C in Calculus. I knew I was better than that, wtf.

I still got cavities anyways too. What the hell man?

One of the reasons that Americans are so science-illiterate is because of reporting like this and their inability to distinguish between pseudo-science and real science.

Screw you, HuffPo.
