Fluoride: The Hard to Swallow Truth

  • Apathesis

    So bottled water is bad for various reasons, and tap water and toothpaste has flouride in it.  WHAT THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO DRINK?

      Piss. Its sterile unless you have gonorrhea and your urethra is all fucked up.

      • Peetr

        I’ll get right on that.

    • Apathesis

       *in them.

    • Fluoride=BrainDamage

      Get your water purified.  Various ways to do so.  Reverse Osmosis to get the fluoride out and various other methods to remineralize it.  It takes a little discipline but you can avoid the toxins.  More folks are offering alternatives because of the growing awareness.  Most Whole Foods have RO filters available.  Good luck.

      • Guest

         You also got to watch out for most non-organic foods because they have been grown or watered with fluoridated water.

         Also… Don’t forget that absorption thru the skin(the body’s largest organ)

    • Peetr

      A decent filter will work wonders…

    • Mamagriff50

      Beer……..Budweiser preferably.

    • Eric_D_Read

      Rum or whiskey.

  • RedHerring

    This is an issue, for people who are born stupid who can’t accept why they are stupid. You are not intelligent and it has nothing to do with the water you are drinking.

    • Fluoride=BrainDamage

      It’s ok Red Herring.  You just keep drinking that sweet sweet fluoride down.
      “I say this with all the earnestness and sincerity of a scientist who has spent nearly 20 years research into the chemistry, biochemistry, physiology, and pathology of fluorine.  Any person who drinks artificially fluoridated water for a year or more will never be the same person mentally or physically” – Charles E. Perkins, Chemist“Fluoride is found in 25% of major tranquilizers and is often referred to as “The Chemical Lobotomy”

      • RedHerring

        So, you are living a life without contact with fluoride? Wow, is your name Mitt Romney? Are the trees in Michigan the “right height” for you?

        • Fluoride=Brain Damage

          Red, no one takes you seriously on these boards you do realize that right?  I mean your bs shit post on 9/11, establishing how far you will stretch the bounds of reality to fit your desired agenda was thoroughly rejected by every commenter.  This should give you an idea of how much you are fooling yourself but not others.  As for fluoride, again you are free to fucking bathe in it and as you most likely do it explains much.  Are you saying you have more expertise than the legions of Doctors and Chemists who decry this forced medication upon the unsuspecting utilizing outdated and obviously manufactured reports assuring it’s “safety”?  Drink all you like!  Enjoy the deterioration of your bones, heart, and brain from this known neurotoxin.  

      • Gomer pile

        Can you detox? Won’t that help? Chemical lobotomy for reals?

    • DeepCough

      Even on tubes of toothpaste, it says to call Poison Control or seek medical help if you swallow toothpaste, because sodium fluoride is poisonous.


      • RedHerring

        Children swallow toothpaste all the time. How many childhood deaths have been attributed to fluoride?

        This is a fake issue that distracts from more important stuff.

        • DeepCough

           You’re right, it’s a much more important issue to debate whether or not people should be able to use their health insurance to pay for birth control.

          • Lickmypoopplease


        • Phantom

          @redherring, they giving you poison and that’s not important?  Hmmmm….. I guess people’s priorities differ.  Can’t imagine what’s more important than some one trying to tell you that you’re being poisoned.

          • Guest

            Really? You can’t imagine a single thing more important than dying in your late seventies due to drinking allegedly toxic water? I bet you could if you tried. After all, you think water boogeymen are a reasonable explanation for whatever it is you feel that they explain. Regardless of what water you people are drinking, your stupid is going anywhere.

        • Misinformation

           Yes, all things harmful lead to immediate death. Chronic illness does not come into play. Congratulations, you are a genius.

          • Camron Wiltshire

            Well said.  Red Herring’s purpose is evident in his choice of screen name.  What a sad way to waste your days….

          Fluoride suppresses the endocrine system – and was used to treat overactive thyroids The problem doesn’t show up immediately – it takes time (just like asbestos and lead paint). The symptoms of fluoride poisoning are the same as hypothyroid – weight gain, (think about the rise of obesity), low metabolism, thinning hair and eyebrows, dry skin, carpal tunnel, etc. It also lowers IQ and makes bones brittle, and is extremely bad for those with kidney problems. Not only can it cause nasty brown spots on teeth, but can increase bone cancer risk, among other things. It is recommended that no children under 5 years old ingest fluoride.
          Think of the last time you went to a dentist – did the hygienist tell you to swallow the fluoride treatment? They say DO NOT swallow!
          Why would anybody think it’s OK to mass-dose an entire population without regard to their medical needs? Would it be fine it it were xanax?

          It’s a chronic toxin. Your question is like tobacco apologists asking “how many people have smoked a cigarette and then dropped dead?” and when the answer is none, they say “yep! its safe!!”. Only when you know what to look for, can you find the effects.

      • Dude, fuck you.

        So the big bad boogeymen want you to die from fluoride, but they don’t want you to die form fluoride? IT ALL ADDS UP!

    • http://hormeticminds.blogspot.com/ Chaorder Gradient

      Its toxic waste “legally” converted into a “product” by the act of selling it. It is also the key ingredient in some Rat Poisons.

  • hmmm

    wow..some of you people are pretty thick minded


    There are tons of fucking studies on this. Brushing it all under the rug as a ‘fake issue’ is just showing how deluded you are

  • hey

    1) go to find a spring.com and get some #1 big blue jugs to get your own water

    2) if you can’t do that then get a good water filter

    • Lakota

      make sure your bottle doesn’t have BPA in it.  Sadly most filters ( like Brita) doesn’t remove fluoride ;[

      • Lakota

         oops don’t , not doesn’t.

      • Guest

         I use Reverse Osmosis  water and remineralize  it with Himalayan salt or Celtic sea salt and store it in glass or food grade stainless steel water bottle

  • Redacted

    Thank god I only drink beer.

     Sodium Fluoride was once used to kill silverfish & roaches. — No thanks. I’m really fortunate to have a place that does reverse osmosis water, and i just fill up every month or so. Its difficult to completely remove it as you’ll get fast food or beverages with fluoridated water. but there are plenty of states that  have decided to let people choose their own medications. I’m looking up what they did to get that on the books.

    • http://hormeticminds.blogspot.com/ Chaorder Gradient

      I sometimes even wonder how useful reverse osmosis is, but i try not to have the biggest tinfoil hat in the room.

  • Okarin

    the title alone is good enough

  • The3wiglets

    Show me some bad science and I’ll show you a conspiracy theory.

  • Willbattle

    Simply put. The toothpaste tube says to call poison control if you swallow more than a pea size amount. Know why children’s training paste is safe for kids to swallow as they learn how to brush their teeth? Because it’s missing one ingredient…..FLUORIDE!

    Mandrake! Fix me a drink of Grain Alcohol and Rainwater.

  • Lollygaggin’

    I just read that ingesting large amounts of much salt is harmful. LOOKS LIKE I BETTER COMPLETELY REMOVE SALT FROM MY FUCKING DIET!
