Fluoride in our water
If you live in America there is a 70% chance that you are one of the 185 million people drinking fluoridated water. Fluoride is a chemical unnaturally added to drinking water. The question at hand is whether or not Fluoride should continue to be added to the drinking water. The answer to this question is no. Those in favor of fluoridation say that it reduces tooth decay with no health risks, while those opposed to fluoridation say that the practice of fluoridating the water causes major health risks along with moral problems. I believe the practice is downright corrupt, and a more sinister effect is being sought-after by our government rather than what they are purposing. Today I will outline both sides of the argument for fairness; however, my view is strongly against the fluoridation of drinking water.
Those who advocate for the fluoridation of public drinking water are mostly government organizations, such as the “Center for Disease control and prevention” who go as far as to call the fluoridation of water one of the top 10 greatest health achievement of the 20th century. The U.S Surgeon General also released a stamen on the topic saying, “Community water fluoridation is one of the most practical, cost-effective, equitable, and safe measures communities can take to prevent tooth decay and improve oral health”
(U.S Surgeon General). With fluoridation being so effective, healthy, and economically genius it raises the question as to “why has 97% of the Western European population rejected fluoridation of the water?” Either way, the supporters as well as your dentist say that it will help prevent tooth decay by making your teeth more resilient to enamel destructing acids.
Here is a graph that depicts tooth decay in countries that do and do not fluoridate their water.
F.1 Tooth Decay Trends in Fluoridated and Non-Fluoridated Countries
As you may have noticed the decline in the amount of tooth decay is the same for countries that do and do not fluoridate their water. The decline in tooth decay is most likely due to advancement in professional and public knowledge of dental care not to the medicated water being forcedly shoved into the throats of millions of Americans. There is only 5% of the globe drinking this “magic medicine” and more than half of them are Americans.
Now let us begin to unravel this problem at hand. When used as a treatment Fluoride is classified as a “drug” by the FDA. This drug has been given to the public as a medical treatment for tooth decay. This treatment is administered without the consent of the patients taking it. The government is doing something that a standard doctor could not do, which is administering medicatione without consent. The government should not have the right to force individuals to ingest any substance, especially not a medicine. What if I don’t want the treatment? It is my right as a patient to accept or decline any treatment and it is my right as a human being to decide what gets put into my body. The governments only concern should be providing the essential purified water, I will decide what kind of drugs to put in my body. Also there is no possible way for the government to monitor how much fluoride a single person has been taking, as this would be the case in a standard medical practice. People such as athletes, labors, health advocates, and more drink much more water than the average person and therefore are ingesting more fluoride (Connett). Because fluoride is in the water it goes everywhere, the plants get watered with it and any food production with the fluoridated water is constantly being medicated. The funny thing is the benefits that come from fluoride are only effective when it is used as a topical on the teeth and not systematically throughout the body. The center of Disease Prevention has acknowledged this fact but yet fluoride continues to make its way into the bodies of millions.
So what happens when fluoride gets into the body? What I would like to focus on are the effects it has the pineal gland. The pineal gland is one of the seven major endocrine glands in the human body. It regulates hormones that ensure one to function correctly. Specifically, the pineal gland regulates the production of serotonin, melatonin and dimethyltryptamine otherwise known as DMT. Serotonin is a hormone, which gives one a sense of happiness and Euphoria. Melatonin is what governs our sleeping and waking patterns and is essential to keeping our body’s circadian rhythm in order. The final function of the pineal gland is to produce a psychedelic named DMT otherwise known as dimethyltryptamine. The functions of natural DMT in the body are unknown but a study conducted by medical doctor Rick Strassman showed profound effects when the substance is given to a person. An individual under the influence of DMT undergoes an out of body experience that parallels near-death experiences. The pineal gland has been referred to by many cultures, both ancient and modern, as the seat of our soul and they key to our spiritual intuition, it is a gateway to other dimensions and it is where all the answers of the universe can be communicated to you. The most interesting thing about the pineal gland is that it releases a big surge of DMT right before you die. Due to the experiences in the study it is reasonable to suggest one of two explanations as to why the pineal gland excretes DMT before death. Either your body sends you on a psychedelic trip for a few minutes until lights out so that you can tell your loved ones that you see the light at the end of the tunnel, or you are being shot through to the other side for real. Either way those of us left in this world can’t be sure. Whether or not there is an afterlife the pineal gland plays a very key role in your life. It is curious that it is rarely discussed in schools. It creates a natural psychedelic in your mind! The government is also known to prohibit the use of psychedelics even though they have major medical potential and life changing positive effects. The pineal gland is also the number one thing that is affected by fluoride. In the 1990s, a British scientist, Jennifer Luke, discovered that fluoride accumulates to strikingly high levels in the pineal gland. The Fluoride in the body gathers in the pineal gland calcifying the soft tissue, making it hard and useless.
So let’s recap. The government is drugging the people through fluoride. The drug does not have the type of effect that they are prompting to the public. They have even admitted that is not even being administered in the proper way to solve the problem of tooth decay. What Fluoride really does is shut down your pineal gland and inhibit your ability to naturally produce DMT, to have spiritual experience, and to realize that a lot of the things our government does are corrupt and in an the effort to gain more power for a certain few, not to better the world for all the people they swear to protect. Now I may be wrong to try and convince you that our government is drugging us with the purpose to keep us blind to whatever other curious things there up to, but drugging your people is Immoral either way. I invite you only to question. Please wake up.
