Levels of a widely used class of industrial chemicals linked with liver toxicity, developmental problems, tumour growth and hormonal disruptions exceed federally recommended safety levels in public drinking-water supplies for 33 states in the U.S. according to a new study led by researchers at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS)[1].

The chemical contaminants that infest city water supplies in industrialized nations are abundant, including fluoride, chlorine and many others. What’s worse is that many of these chemicals are added intentionally under faulty and misguided science. To top that off, city officials are increasingly being caught for falsifying documents and submitting fraudulent water tests.

Fluoride – The Only Drug Intentionally Added to Your Tap Water

Fluoride – The Only Drug Intentionally Added to Your Tap Water

By Michael Connett, JD

Following the recent water crisis in Flint, it’s no wonder that the U.S. public has begun to question exactly how safe our drinking water actually is. What was once taken for granted — the idea of safe, pure, and drinkable water for everyone — is now in serious question.

In addition to the continuing problems with lead contamination, it has come to light in recent years that public water supplies are now contaminated with trace levels of pharmaceutical drugs, including oral contraceptives and mood stabilizers.

These drugs end up in our water somewhat inadvertently; however, there’s one pharmaceutical that is intentionally added to our tap water: Fluoride.

Fluoride’s role as an endocrine disruptor and neurotoxin has been known for a while now but, unfortunately, it’s still used in many dental products to this day. Nowadays, there are so many other things you can use for a healthy mouth and bone protection. The overall health issues associated with fluoride consumption just aren’t worth it.

Natural Alternatives to Fluoride

Protecting your teeth and gums requires time, commitment, and the right tools to get the job done. Brushing your teeth, flossing, and limiting sugar intake are all great methods. Here are five natural alternatives you should consider adding to your oral health regimen.

Scientific Review Shows Fluoridation Does Not Prevent Cavities

Scientific Review Shows Fluoridation Does Not Prevent Cavities

By Dr. Joseph Mercola

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

After decades of toxic fluoride being added to public water supplies without the public’s consent, we now have significant validation that this practice needs to be stopped.

The Cochrane Collaboration (an international not-for-profit organisation preparing, maintaining and promoting systematic reviews of the effects of health care) has released a comprehensive review of the science of fluoridation, with points that are nearly impossible to dispute. In short, fluoride doesn’t work to prevent cavities and has been proven to cause harm — in the form of dental fluorosis.

Fluorosis – mottled discolorations on teeth – is not purely aesthetic. It’s a visible sign that you’ve been exposed to this known developmental neurotoxin at excessive levels.

How Fluoride Damages Pineal Gland Health

How Fluoride Damages Pineal Gland Health

By Dr. Edward F. Group

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Fluoride was originally added to the water supply sometime around the end of World War II in an effort to improve overall dental health. Despite the well wishes, the public did not anticipate the physical health dangers. Now, more and more people are recognizing the effects, and one of those is how it damages the pineal gland.

If you’ve never heard of the pineal gland, know it’s got a pretty important job. Located in the center of the brain, it’s responsible for melatonin synthesis (which plays a role in maintaining normal rhythms and sleep cycles), and also helps convert signals between our nervous and endocrine systems.

Unfortunately, the pineal gland can develop problems because it can also absorb a lot of fluoride — even more than our bones.

The Fluoride Deception Continues as US Government Ignores Fluoride’s Role as an Endocrine Disruptor

The Fluoride Deception Continues as US Government Ignores Fluoride’s Role as an Endocrine Disruptor

In 2012 more than 67 percent of Americans received fluoridated water,[1]and of those, more than 11 million people were getting fluoride at or above the “optimal” level of 0.7-1.2 milligrams per liter (mg/L), according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Then, in April this year, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that this “optimal” level of fluoride, recommended since 1962, had in fact been set too high, resulting in 40 percent of American teens showing signs of overexposure[2]-a condition known as dental fluorosis.

Is Your Toothpaste Safe?

Is Your Toothpaste Safe?

All of us love the tangy smell and taste of toothpaste — aah, that fresh feeling in the morning! But, how many of us have really cared to find out what there is in our toothpaste beyond that minty, fresh flavour?

There are as many types of toothpastes as ‘biscuit brands’ at the local store. The point to bear in mind though is all toothpastes, like biscuits, are made of certain ingredients — to give them flavour, colour, texture, or a ‘pasty’ appearance.

Of course, there are variations too, some claiming to be more effective than the others. A few examples include: toothpaste for sensitive teeth, toothpaste for bad breath, Sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS)-free toothpaste, and ‘natural’ herbal toothpastes.

With so many variations available, how do you know if your toothpaste is safe? By understanding the ingredients, you can decide for yourself.

Fluoride Linked to Coronary Heart Disease

Fluoride Linked to Coronary Heart Disease

By Dr. Michelle Kmiec

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Dental fluorosis is a condition caused by too much fluoride, and it’s on the rise in the United States, despite the US government knowing about it for some time now. Though it can happen to anyone, the condition (which ruins teeth) affects more children than adults, primarily because children’s teeth are still developing and more susceptible to fluorosis.

But did you know that dental fluorosis is also a biomarker for coronary heart disease?

When Will the Fluoride Poisoning Stop?

Per the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in 2010: “Prevalence of dental fluorosis was higher among younger persons and ranged from 41% among adolescents aged 12-15 to 9% among adults aged 40-49.” That rate of 41% in adolescents aged 12-15 increased from 22.6% back in 1986-87 (almost double).

Fluoridated Water Can Calcify Arteries, Study Finds

Fluoridated Water Can Calcify Arteries, Study Finds

Fluoride is put in your drinking water ‘for your teeth’ without your consent, but did you know that it could also be calcifying your arteries?

A few years ago, we reported on a study evaluating a new diagnostic technology that inadvertently revealed a link between fluoride exposure and coronary artery disease. Our report stirred up quite a lot of controversy and criticism, even leading one of the most respected figures in alternative medicine (deservedly so) – Dr. Russell Blaylock — to call us out on Infowars for our allegedly sophomoric interpretation of the following article: “Association of vascular fluoride uptake with vascular calcification and coronary artery following article disease.” As one can see, the study’s results revealed a hitherto largely unknown connection between fluoride exposure, coronary artery disease and cardiovascular events (e.g. heart attack).

Which Water Should I Drink?

Which Water Should I Drink?

By Trinity Bourne

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Water is a bountiful gift of nature. We see it all around us in the falling rain, lakes, rivers, the ocean, early morning dew, waterfalls, taps, swimming pools, showers and even plastic bottles. Until the recent industrial era we drank water freely from streams and rivers, not giving a second thought to whether it was safe – it just was.

So where did things go so wrong?

With our bodies composed of somewhere upwards of 60% water, it is an important element for human life; a basic human right. When did water become a controlled commodity?

One of the biggest problems that we face today, is that there is so much conflicting information about which water we should drink, that it is difficult to make a conscious choice. ‘Which’ water to drink has been a challenging dilemma for me, my whole adult life. It seems almost every which way I turn, there is something to compromise. Once I start pulling at a lose thread, the whole garment rapidly falls apart.

This article is going to explore our realistic options, so that we can at least begin to make more informed decisions about the water we drink.

A Radical Understanding of Alzheimer’s Disease Causes and Cures

A Radical Understanding of Alzheimer’s Disease Causes and Cures

Alzheimer’s disease is expanding unchecked throughout the modern world, despite billions spent annually on pharmaceutical interventions. Could the calcification of the brain play a role?

Despite the multi-billion dollar successes of conventional pharmacological interventions for Alzheimer’s disease, lackluster treatment outcomes have revealed them to be an abject failure. The ongoing hypothesis for the past few decades has been that Alzheimer’s disease is caused by a lack of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, but acetycholinesterase inhibitors (drugs that inhibit the enzyme that breaks this neurotransmitter down) have failed miserably to produce anything but momentary palliative improvements, if that. In addition, post-marketing surveillance data now clearly shows these drugs may actually cause new, more serious neurological problems, such as seizures.

And why should we surprised? We do not know of a disease in existence that is caused by a lack of a pharmaceutical agent. And what are Alzheimer’s disease drugs but patented xenobiotic chemicals, completely alien to human physiology? Therefore, the answer is to look deeper at the underlying causes of Alzheimer’s disease, and preventing, addressing and reversing them whenever possible — the perennial goal of compassionate and logical medicine.

Fluoride, a questionable chemical added to drinking water and toothpaste for the oft-repeated goal of preventing tooth decay, may actually be responsible for certain childhood mental disorders, according to new study Neurobehavioural effects of developmental toxicity from the Harvard School of Public Health. The researchers looked at various chemicals that children are regularly exposed to and found that several, including fluoride, are directly related to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other mental issues.
