A new study out of the UK shows once again just how dangerous water fluoridation is.
This time, a look at 98 percent of GP practices found that high rates of underactive thyroid were 30 percent more likely to show up in areas with, surprise surprise, the greatest degree of water fluoridation.
[The study] found a relatively strong and statistically significant effect, with General Practice (GP) areas being 62% more likely to have high rates of diagnosed hypothyroidism if their drinking water fluoride levels were above 0.7ppm compared to areas with fluoride levels below 0.3ppm. This was after researchers had accounted for key confounders, which are other factors that influence hypothyroid rates.
Via The Telegraph:
…new research from the University of Kent suggests that there is a spike in the number of cases of underactive thyroid in high fluoride areas such as the West Midlands and the North East of England…
It could mean that up to 15,000 people are suffering needlessly from thyroid problems which can cause depression, weight gain, fatigue and aching muscles.
And that, of course, is just the number of people in those areas studied.
Obviously, artificial water fluoridation is a dangerous and underestimated practice.
If weight gain and depression fit the bill, it might help to explain why the United States – the most fluoridated nation on the planet – is also the world’s most obese as well as the world’s most medicated country, with anti-depressants prescribed more than any other drug. Of course, there are many other factors at play as well.
Underactive thyroid, or hypothyroidism, is a condition where your thyroid doesn’t produce enough hormone. Your thyroid regulates all sorts of processes in your body, including your metabolism, your body temperature, and even your heartbeat. If your thyroid isn’t working properly, your whole body slows down, resulting in a bevy of other health problems the least of which is actually weight gain and and fatigue.
Studies have shown that fluoride inhibits iodine, which is necessary to keep your thyroid functioning.
On top of that, people don’t realize how many pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides we ingest which also contain fluoride in addition to what’s in our water. In studies, these have shown to negatively impact the pituitary gland as well, a pea-sized gland known as the “master” of our endocrine system that secretes thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).
“Underactive thyroid is a particularly nasty thing to have and it can lead to other long term health problems. I do think councils need to think again about putting fluoride in the water,” Lead author Professor Stephen Peckham, Centre for Health Service Studies, said.
And again, these researchers like so many before them concluded there are safer ways of improving dental health these days that don’t involve dumping the artificial chemical byproducts of the fertilizer industry into our water supply, but our governments time and again just keep repeating the motto “safe and effective” over and over like the fluoridated zombie robots they are.
Did you know that not only was the flagship World War II Grand Rapids fluoride study “tinkered with” to throw out data showing children who did not drink fluoridated water had healthier teeth, but artificial fluoride’s “healthiness” was actually pushed via a massive government propaganda campaign run by none other than Edward Bernays?
“Almost overnight…the popular image of fluoride – which at the time was being widely sold as rat and bug poison – became that of a beneficial provider of gleaming smiles, absolutely safe, and good for children, bestowed by a benevolent paternal government. Its opponents were permanently engraved on the public mind as crackpots and right-wing loonies.”
Yes Bernays, the propaganda king who, among so many other ideas that exploited humanity, convinced women smoking was just a fabulous idea.
Why World War II?
Gee, I don’t know, could it have anything to do with the fact that huge quantities of fluoride were necessary were to generate the bomb-grade uranium and plutonium essential in atomic bomb production during the Manhattan project? All that excess fluoride waste had to go somewhere… Why not in your water?
Government documents have since been made public which show atomic scientists were secretly ordered to help provide “evidence useful in litigation” against defendants suing over fluoride damage in court. These are the same government scientists who organized studies showing fluoride is “safe and effective.” Can you say “conflict of interest?”
The bottom line isn’t even how obviously false the science was that water fluoridation was based on in the first place. We’ve been lied to and for obvious reasons, that much is on record.
Even before we get to the lies, even looking at water fluoridation superficially, how did we ever accept a program that mass medicates the population via a route that delivers the same amount of chemicals to everyone everywhere without taking into account age, weight, previous medical history, and the amount much a person ingests per day? This isn’t just negligent, it’s downright stupid.
Think about any medicine ever, right down to vitamins or over-the-counter cough syrup. There are at the very least dosages based on age, right?
How come water fluoridation is some magical process with a chemical that transcends all logic and reason into a one size fits all policy where nothing else ever does?
And that’s before we even get to the rant about how when you drink a glass of water, it only makes contact with the surfaces of your teeth for a brief moment before it is ingested and makes contact with every other system in your body including your organs and soft tissues. Does everything in your body need to be fluoridated? Does your kidneys, liver, intestines and brain get cavities? It’s not like fluoride, which can cause dental fluorosis, is somehow such a smart molecule it knows it should quarantine itself to only affecting your teeth and nothing else but your teeth.
How we are still dumping artificial fluoride into our water when studies come out again and again showing the deleterious effects of the stuff is beyond me. Fluoride makes people sick and stupid, but beyond that, it’s a poison. It’s poisonous.
How much more proof do you need that a poison is poisonous?
Purify your water. Stop drinking poison.
