Fluoridated Water Treatment page is the fourth page on fluoride that Marilyn Vine has on this website.
The links below will take you to the other three pages if you would like to look at earlier information.
This is a fluoridated water update on the article shown below this.
“The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) authorizes the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to prohibit the “particular use” of a chemical that presents an unreasonable risk to the general public or susceptible subpopulations. TSCA gives EPA the authority to prohibit drinking water additives.
The Fluoride Action Network together with Food & Water Watch, American Academy of Environmental Medicine, International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology, Moms Against Fluoridation and others petitioned EPA to exercise its authority to prohibit the purposeful addition of fluoridation chemicals to U.S. water supplies. We made this request on the grounds that a large body of animal, cellular, and human research shows that fluoride is neurotoxic at doses within the range now seen in fluoridated communities.
We have won the first two rounds in Federal Court. The first was the Dec 21, 2017, ruling to allow the case to go forward, thus ending EPA’s effort to dismiss the case. The second ruling on Feb 7, 2018, allows us to enter new studies into consideration, something that EPA argued against.”
Newsbud Interviews Paul & Michael Connett on TSCA Fluoride Case
What is fluoride? Is it safe to drink? Is it safe for your children? Should we be adding fluoride to our water supply? What about fluoridated toothpaste? In this report we speak with two men from the Fluoride Action Network who are taking water fluoridation and the government head on, with science on their side as they are suing the EPA to end the deliberate fluoridation of water in the U.S.
Then you need to read this!
Article published by NaturalNews dated 5 April 2018 entitled “Water fluoridation found to increase hypothyroidism risk by 30%”. Here is an excerpt:
“As millions of people suffer from thyroid problems and related issues like depression, it is time to take a closer look at our drinking water. That’s because a study has pointed to an unexpected culprit in the form of fluoride in drinking water.
Researchers analyzed 98 percent of the GP practices in England, and they found that the rate of suffering from an underactive thyroid – also known as hypothyroidism – was a notable 30 percent higher in areas with fluoridated water. Among the population studied, this accounted for 15,000 people suffering from the illness unnecessarily. For example, in places like the West Midlands, which is a fully fluoridated area, the prevalence of hypothyroidism was double that of the non-fluoridated Greater Manchester.”
GreenMedia dated 12 March 2018 published this article “Fluoride Literally Turns the Pineal Gland to Stone, Research Suggests.” The article goes on to say:
The pineal gland has been known as the 'seat of soul' for hundreds of years. Could fluoride, a ubiquitous vector of toxicity in the modern world, actually be calcifying this gland and literally turning it to stone?
Research published in 2001 showed that fluoride (F) deposits in the pineal gland with age and is associated with enhanced gland calcification. Eleven aged cadavares were dissected and their pineal glands assayed:
"There was a positive correlation between pineal F[luoride] and pineal Ca[lcium] (r = 0.73, p<0.02) but no correlation between pineal F and bone F. By old age, the pineal gland has readily accumulated F and its F/Ca ratio is higher than bone."
This is the not the first research to implicate fluoride in contributing to so-called ectopic calcification, or the calcification of soft tissue. We address this in a previous report on the potential for fluoride to calcifiy the arteries.”
Activist Post dated 3 March 2018 published this article “Court Decision Could Lead to EPA Banning Water Fluoridation.” The article goes on to say:
“A federal court has denied an attempt by the Environmental Protection Agency to dismiss a lawsuit seeking to ban the use of fluoride under the Toxic Substances Control Act.
In a victory for water fluoridation opponents, a judge in the Northern District of California has denied a motion by the Environmental Protection Agency that sought to limit the information available to the court while making their decision on whether or not to ban water fluoridation. The lawsuit was brought forth by Food and Water Watch Inc. and a coalition of health organizations and individuals concerned about fluoride. Under section 21 of The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) citizens are allowed to petition the EPA to regulate or ban individual chemicals. Food and Water Watch filed the lawsuit after the EPA rejected a citizen petition calling for the EPA to ban the addition of fluoride chemicals to the drinking water supply.”
It would be good to see the end of fluoridated water!
In this short fluoridated water clip, Dr. Paul Connett of the Fluoride Action Network discusses the sugar lobby's role in shaping oral health policy in the U.S., as well as fluoride's effect on the developing brain.
Many times it has come to our attention the Council’s entrusted with putting the correct “dose” of artificial fluoride compounds into our water supplies are not capable of doing this. This can be the result of many things like:
Rous Council is a prime example of this. Please click this fluoridated water link to see what has gone on in Rous Council.
Natural News dated 25 June 2017 published this article “WINNING: Fluoride Action Network has forced U.S. courts to review fluoride toxicity in drinking water”. Here is an excerpt:
“Fluoride Action Network (FAN) filed a pivotal lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the North District of California against the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a rebuttal to the government agency’s denial of a petition that the non-government organization had issued under Section 21 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) which asked for a ban in water fluoridation.”

On February 16th, 2017 the U.S. National Toxicology Program gave an update via conference call on their pending review of fluoride's neurotoxic effect on humans and animals. In this conference call, NTP updated interested parties on the status of their study and fielded several questions on the specifics of their soon-to-be -published review.
6 more prosecuted with criminal felony charges. Total of 9 so far and more to come.
WHEN is government going to STOP this archaic, costly, bad policy.
Listen to the YouTube as the Flint Water saga unfolds. In the meantime we have countries like America and Australia artificially fluoridating our public drinking water with toxic chemical waste products that are known to contain cadmium, mercury, arsenic and lead. When are the citizens of these countries going to have their blood levels tested for these heavy metals! More importantly when are they going to stop putting fluoridated water into our public utilities? Now listen to what is being said about Flint Water.
NaturalNews on 18 July 2016 reveals that a “Neuroscience journal confirms adverse effects of fluoride on brain development”. The article goes on to say:
commonly found in tap water thanks to a process called fluoridation
– which the U.S. government has been repeatedly telling us is a safe and
effective way to protect teeth from decay, according to Global Research.
But a recent study published in The Lancet, the world's most renowned medical journal, has actually classified fluoride as a neurotoxin – something which has a negative impact on brain development – alongside other extremely toxic compounds such as arsenic, lead and mercury.
A large number of cities within the U.S. are pumping their drinking water systems full of fluoride, and the government is claiming that there are no health risks to this unnecessary practice.”
Eurobodalla Fluoride Issues Incorporated (EFII) is delighted to provide information on what is happening at Bega Council with regards to getting the removal of artificial fluoride. Bega is 2 hours south of Batemans Bay and we will be watching this saga unfold with a very watchful eye.
The Bega District News on 9 June 2016 advised:
“Anti-fluoride experts to address Bega forum
The forum will be addressed Cambridge University graduate Professor Paul Connett whose books include The Case Against Fluoride: How Hazardous Waste Ended Up In Our Drinking Water.
Professor Connett, who is from the United States, has been the guest speaker at the forums alongside Dr Geoff Pain, from Melbourne, who argues among other things that fluoride is a bio-accumulative, endocrine disrupting, neurotoxic carcinogen.
Forum organiser, Merimbula dentist Dr Maria Claudianos, renewed her invitation to Bega councillors to attend tomorrow’s forum in Bega and said she was disappointed that not one had attended any of the previous three forums.”
EFII have been advised that there has now been a further meeting attended by the Mayor, 2 other councillors and a candidate for the next Bega Shire Elections.
Dr Maria Claudianos is running a FaceBook page on the saga unfolding here in Bega.
EFII takes this opportunity to wish the people of Bega well in their campaign and much success in being able to have artificial fluoride removed from their water.
Fluoridated Water page is happy to assist in getting artificial fluoride removed from Bega Council’s public water supply.
Dr Mercola on 20 October 2015 alerts us to the fact that Mosaic Fertilizer, one of the world’s largest phosphate mining and fertilizer companies, agreed to a $2 billion settlement with the US Environmental Protection Agency. The Agency accused Mosaic of improper storage and disposal of waste from the production of phosphoric and sulfuric acids, key components of fertilizers.
Did you know that fluorosilicic acid, another hazardous waste product of the fertilizer industry, is sold to US municipalities (and other countries around the world including Australia) to be added to drinking water for the purposes of artificial water fluoridation.
SO WHY WEREN’T THEY FINED FOR SELLING FLUOROSILICIC ACID FOR INSERTION IN DRINKING WATER?
DO THE AUTHORITIES JUST TURN A BLIND EYE TO THIS ASPECT TO SUPPORT THEIR OWN AGENDA?

“Fluoride is a toxic endocrine-disrupting drug that can adversely affect your bones, brain, thyroid gland, pineal gland, and much more”
This is the first of a two-part series on the whitewash reviews which are produced by pro-fluoridation governments in an attempt to defuse the growing efforts to end this foolish practice worldwide. Part 1 is on the whitewash review produced by the NZ government a few days ago.
SHOULD YOU BELIEVE IN THE TOOTH FAIRY?
Australia's peak medical body, The Australian National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), is assembling a committee to review Water Fluoridation, last done in 2007. The committee's undisclosed goal is to support this corrupt policy which is claimed to improve dental health without harming general health. Only a stacked committee can do this.
The NHMRC has invited public input of "new science", and has restricted public submissions to include only post 1 October 2006 research publications. This conveniently excludes consideration of the U.S. National Research Council's (NRC) fair and balanced 2006 Report on Water Fluoridation, and also the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology's (IAOMT) Position Statement on Fluoridation (2003). The former warns of serious health concerns and the latter rejects the claim that fluoride is "safe" at any concentration.
Mr Teagle wrote to Samantha Robertson, Executive Director of NHMRC on 26 July 2014 requesting notification of how the public have been made aware that they have the right to provide submissions. Cathy Connor, Director Public Health, NHMRC on 29 July 2014 provided the following:

Cindy Tjol on 6 July 2014 provides us with the following information:
“There is more to fluoridated water than you may be aware of.
Many of us have been brought up to think that fluoride in our waters protect our teeth from tooth decays and keep our teeth and bones strong. What we were NOT told is that consuming fluoridated water can be problematic. Its impact on our health, including our bones and teeth, could do us more harm than good.
Open your eyes to some of the alarming facts about fluoridated water below.”
Prevent Disease on 5 June 2014 provides more information on this controversial subject.
NaturalMentor on 21 April 2014 brings information on new research involving Turmeric (Curcumin) with news that Turmeric can prevent fluoridated water from damaging your brain. Here is an excerpt and click here to read the fully study. This link is no longer available.
“A new study published in the Pharmacognosy Magazine titled, “Curcumin attenuates neurotoxicity induced by fluoride: An in vivo evidence,” adds experimental support to the suspicion that fluoride is indeed a brain-damaging substance, also revealing that a natural spice-derived protective agent against the various health effects associated with this compound is available.
The study was authored by researchers from the Department of Zoology, University College of Science, M.L. Sukhadia University, Udaipur, India, who have spent the past decade investigating the mechanisms through which fluoride induces severe neurodegenerative changes in the mammalian brain, particularly in cells of the hippocampus and cerebral cortex.
The study opens by describing the historical backdrop for concern about fluoride’s significant and wide ranging toxicity:
“Fluoride (F) is probably the first inorganic ion which drew attention of the scientific world for its toxic effects and now the F toxicity through drinking water is well-recognized as a global problem. Health effect reports on F exposure also include various cancers, adverse reproductive activities, cardiovascular, and neurological diseases.”
In 2012 Professor Niyi Awofeso concluded “there is insufficient ethical justification for artificial water fluoridation in Australia.” To read this report please click this link.
Now Stephen Peckham and Niyi Awofeso have done “A Critical Review of the Physiological Effects of Ingested Fluoride as a Public Health Intervention’ which has been published in the Scientific World Journal, vol 2014, Article ID 293019, 10 pages, 2014. Doi: 10.1155/2014/293019. To read this study please click this link.
Some excerpts from the Study:
"It is widely accepted that fluoride only helps prevent dental decay by topical means."
"Given that the action of fluoride on dental caries prevention is topical, only topical fluoride products are likely to provide optimal benefits claimed for this chemical."
"A change in the ideological approach to fluoride use for dental caries prevention is essential in the global public health community. An important change would be for the World Health Organization to repudiate its assertion that fluoride is an essential nutrient or trace element, or that artificial water fluoridation is a useful public health strategy."
"The classification of fluoride as a pollutant rather than as a nutrient or medicine is a useful starting point for analysing the adverse effect of fluoride. No fluoride deficiency disease has ever been documented for humans. Indeed, the basis for setting an "adequate intake" of fluoride rests on the alleged ability of ingested fluoride to prevent tooth decay. However, since it is now known that the effect of fluoride is topical, the notion of an “adequate daily intake” is flawed. One of the key concerns about water fluoridation is the inability to control an individual’s dose of ingested fluoride which brings into question the concept of the “optimal dose.”
Fluoridated Water Treatment Page is pleased to see someone from the scientific community stand up and ask the World Health Organization (WHO) to review its stance on fluoridation. It is hoped that other scientists will follow this lead.
Fluoridated water: Dr David Kennedy says that fluoride reducing tooth decay is nothing but a myth! He advises on a much more effective way to reduce dental decay. Fluoridated Water Page is pleased to be able to bring alternatives to dental decay to your attention.

NaturalNews on 3 May 2013 brings information on how to rid yourself of fluoride. The article goes on to say:
"Even if you somehow managed to escape the ingestion of fluoridated water in your younger years, chances are you've been exposed to food items that actually can contain about 180 times the sodium fluoride content as fluoridated water," writes Anthony Gucciardi, who cited fluoride expert Jeff Green. "This has to do with how what's known as aluminum fluoride, or Cryolite. Used as a pesticide due to its ability to kill bugs, conventional farmers will often times spray excessive amounts of the sticky substance onto crops. As a result, the aluminum fluoride substance will reside unless thoroughly washed off of the produce."
´In a separate interview, Green said that Cryolite was "actually sodium aluminum fluoride,"
a compound that "is especially effective at killing bugs."
"It's also very sticky, so when they spray it, it's more likely to stick on your produce, unless you're... really working at trying to get it off of it," said Green.”

NaturalNews dated 15 June 2012 brings information with regards to CDC says fluoride has no evidence of benefits for infants.
”In a letter to California senator Barbara Boxer the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) director Thomas Frieden responded to questions about fluoride and infants. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) in 1997 set the adequate amount of fluoride for infants 0 to 6 months of age at .01 milligrams per day, which is the amount of fluoride found in breast milk. The CDC was asked if more fluoride than the adequate amount was beneficial. CDC director Frieden wrote "We are unaware of data that directly answers your questions about the additional protection from tooth decay that could result from greater daily fluoride intake by infants, 0-6 months of age."
In other words, there is no scientific evidence that dosing babies with lots of fluoride has any benefit at all.
The speaker does not know why Hispanics are affected more than Caucasians. Well in Australian Aborigines it has been found that they have less nephrons in their kidneys than Caucasians and thus their kidney’s ability to cope with fluoride is limited. Perhaps this is the same reason for Hispanics.
Ingesting fluoride from public water supplies, your pharmaceutical medications, and in your food can cause a build of calcium of the pineal gland and it is then referred to as calcification of the pineal gland. I have learned of a Young Living Therapeutic Grade essential oil that may help with this calcification.

For those of you who are not well versed on the subject of fluoridated water treatment I will outline a few moot points for you to consider. If you do not know about these issues then please may I suggest that you undertake some research of your own with regard to fluoride water treatment. I would also suggest that the avenues for your research do not include the dental associations, health departments or government departments who are implementing the fluoride in your area or your country.
There is an enormous amount of scientific research that has been undertaken in a great many countries to back up the harm that fluoridated water treatment causes. The pro fluoride proponents will tell you that they have scientific research to back up their claims. Please ask them to produce this research for you as
NOWHERE IN THE WORLD HAS RESEARCH BEEN UNDERTAKEN THAT HAS EITHER PROVED THE SAFETY OR EFFICACY OF FLUORIDATED WATER TREATMENT!
I could say more but I would prefer for you to do your own research. Many of the scientific studies can be found on the links above and more will be provided in this fluoride water treatment page as the information comes to hand.
Fluoridated Water Treatment Page brings information on caring for teeth begins from birth. Here we have Dr Osmunson and Dr Mercola speaking on dental hygiene. Dr Osmunson says:
“You may have heard of "bottle caries," which typically affects the front teeth. This can occur when your child is allowed to suckle on a bottle of formula or juice during the night. This exposes your child's developing teeth to the drink for an extended period of time. As the formula, milk, or juice ferments in your baby's mouth, it causes the teeth to rot.
"No amount of fluoride will prevent bottle caries," Dr. Osmunson says. "That's a hundred percent diet. Don't put your baby to bed with a bottle of juice or milk and leave the bottle for long periods of time. Water is OK."
Now listen to what these two doctors have to say and you can download the transcript
Further information in Fluoridated Water Treatment Page. On 7 January 2011 the Government admitted that fluoride is hurting children but they are only recognizing the fluorosis damage and not the total damage. So they decided to reduce the amount of fluoride in the drinking water but so many foods include fluoride and so this is where they are still affecting our lives. Listen to the YouTube below. Does your drinking water contain uranium?
Fluoridated water treatment page advises that as more information seeps out to the general public, the more questions are being raised. This article is Black Pastors calling for an investigation into fluoridegate as to the effect on black people in particular.
Fluoridated water treatment brings you a document with a whole lot of links in for you to go to and see for yourself the harm that fluoride causes on the pineal gland and the effect on humans.
Fluoridated water treatment page brings information from Dr Samuel Epstein, dated 24 January 2011 with regard to the incidences of bone cancer (osteosarcoma) in young boys.
Fluoridated Water Treatment advised that it has been believed that fluoride can change a mineral in tooth enamel called hydroxyapatite into fluorapatite which was believed to be a more decay-resistant material. Now scientists are questioning which the thin layer produced which would be eroded by just chewing food, can really shield teeth from decay! Read what Dr Mercola has to say and then watch Professor Paul Connett:
Your Toxic Tap Water
Recently the EPA in America has decided to phase out the use of a fluoride-based fumigant (sulfuryl fluoride) in food storage and processing facilities. This decision has been based on an analysis by EPA that human exposure to fluoride in the United States from all sources (including food, water and toothpaste) exceeded government safety standards. While residue levels in food treated with sulfuryl fluoride made a small contribution to overall fluoride exposure, the EPA nonetheless decided to withdraw approval for its use in food storage and processing facilities.
In Australia the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Agency (APVMA) does not plan to take any action against Dow AgroSciences’ fumigant, sulfuryl fluoride, Profume Termite Poison – classified as S7 POISON.
Below are three links
A very good informative article on the levels, dangers, etc of foods to be poisoned with fluoride.
EPA Information document has been removed from the internet
Research has come to hand showing that the soft tissue of the adult pineal gland contains more fluoride than any other soft tissue in the body – a level of fluoride (~300 ppm) capable of inhibiting enzymes.
Also that the pineal gland contains hard tissue (hyroxyapatite crystals), and this hard tissue accumulates more fluoride (up to 21,000 ppm) than any other hard tissue in the body (e.g. teeth and bone).
Fluoridated Water Treatment page brings you a press announcement from Dr Osmunson, dated January 2011 stating that the “US government proposed reduction of fluoridation does not go far enough.” Here are some of his comments from this release:
“The recent HHS recommendation to lower the maximum amount of fluoride to be added to drinking water from 1.2 ppm down to 0.7 ppm still does not make the water safe, particularly for infants and children. Mother’s milk contains virtually no fluoride, even if the mother drinks fluoridated water. Formula made with fluoridated water will harm infant brains, lowering IQ, increasing the risk of mental retardation and cancer.”
“Nor does a 0.7 ppm level prevent harm to teens, adults, and the aged. Half of all fluoride consumed is retained in bones and other organs. A lifetime of drinking fluoridated water worsens kidney disease, arthritis, thyroid disease, and possibly Alzheimer’s disease.”
“Dental fluorosis is a sign of a general fluoride poisoning of the entire body. It is caused by ingesting too much fluoride. The maximum contaminant level goal for fluoride should be zero, which means we should be adding no fluoride to drinking water.”
“Over twenty peer-reviewed human studies say drinking fluoridated water lowers IQ and damages the human brain. Teeth are not more important than brains. No one at HHS seems to care about IQ. Artificial fluoride is a protected pollutant, and HHS must stop defending it.”
“Some of the studies which HHS cites are half a century old. Most studies cited focus only on teeth and dental fluorosis and ignore other organs. HHS fails to include current studies showing serious harm from fluoride exposure. The studies cited assume that naturally occurring calcium fluoride, sodium fluoride (from aluminum plants) and silicofluorides (from fertilizer plants) are all the same. They are not. Silicofluorides are far more harmful because they contain lead, dissolve lead in pipes, and facilitate uptake of lead into the brain.”
It would be appreciated if you could pass on the information contained in Fluoridated Water Treatment Page to your friends, family and other interested parties so that they too can learn about the harm of fluoridation.
Fluoridated Water Treatment page is just one of many pages on this website bringing you information.
