To the Snohomish County Health District:

Many water district and city officials all over this country order the infusion of industrial fluoride compounds into their citizens by treating their water supplies. Particularly in areas with low levels of calcium in the water, ingested fluoride is assimilated and incorporates and accumulates into the pineal gland hydroxyapetite, incorporates and accumulates into bone over lifetime consumption and this happens in all people with no exceptions to varying degrees depending on health status and diet, and in kids tooth fluorosis incidence increases in all cities without exception, and in patients with cardiovascular disease, fluoride from the blood incorporates into atherosclerotic plaque in coronary arteries. And fluoride distributes everywhere in the blood at levels of 0.21 ppm or higher and crosses the blood brain barrier, affecting the morphology and health of cell organelles and slowly but surely causes observable effects on brain function.  Fortunately the human brain is of large capacity, but the damage caused by fluoride accumulates during lifelong drinking because brain cell are not regenerated.

 

This is all allowed in spite of the known cases of overfeeds that killed  people in Illinois, Maryland and the worst water fluoridation disaster in U.S. history in Hooper Bay, AK where 302 people were life-flighted to a hospital with one fatality. Do city officials read the New England Journal of Medicine article describing this incident to find out how to prevent this in their city, or what fluoride level in human blood causes death in humans? I don’t think they do. The blood level that is lethal by decreasing the activity of calcium ion in the blood that stops the heart beat is only 5 ppm.

 

Why do cities do this? Because of a belief in causation rather than mere correlation in 1939 with fluoride in water and decreased caries. Ingested fluoride from water produces only 0.02 ppm in saliva that bathes teeth topically (the only mechanism the CDC recognizes now as possibly effective in teeth decay). This is 75,000 times less concentrated than in toothpaste. Do cities read the detailed studies of Teotia or those of Ziegelbecker? Apparently not. Do they ever  read the reviews of these works published by Thiessen at Oak Ridge labs or by Connett from St. Lawrence University? No. Citizens then try to explain the truth, but they are rejected for not being recognized as authorities on the subject, while others are presumed to be.

 

A salmon collapse on the Columbia River in the 1970’s occurred when industrial fluoride reaches only 0.3 ppm in the soft water. The smelter discharge was halted and the salmon returned. Not so lucky in CA. South Sacramento began fluoridation in 2007, and in 2008 a salmon collapse occurred, the first since the 19th century. The rest of the city infused industrial fluoride into water supplies soon after, and the salmon of course have never returned since, the industry is dead.

 

And now Portland officials are insisting on fluoridating the city, in spite of the intelligent vote against it three times. How quickly we forget, and how insensitive people can be. If waste water, which is not able to be de-fluoridated, is discharged into the Columbia, then bye bye to more salmon.
