Fluoride Research

Everyone should know that fluoridated water isn't simply pharmaceutical grade fluoride, but compounds left over from other industries that commonly deal with heavy metals which would otherwise have to pay to dispose of this caustic concoction safely. It is usually bought from fertilizer or aluminum mining or nuclear industries in China and added to water with the names of fluorosilicic acid (harder to remove) or sodium fluoride (need RO or distiller) to city water supplies. Fluoride is one of the most reactive elements, so it isn't found exclusively and any supposedly beneficial doses are found in more natural compound, calcium fluoride phosphate, for example. Fluoride is often used in pharmaceuticals, especially antidepressants, and has a unique ability to bind to metals like lead on the way to your tap.

The whole sordid story seems to start with Alcoa, an aluminum company, that hired a lawyer, Ewing, to shirk any lawsuits arising from contamination of communities surrounding their factories back in the twenties. From there, Ewing hired Edward Bernays (Freud's nephew and father of PR Industry) to sell the public on the idea that not only does fluoride not poison and cripple farmland, livestock and humans, but it is a product to sell to the public at large. Later on, the Defense Dept had problems disposing of tons of fluoride from secretive A-bomb enrichment processes and proceeded to jump on the water fluoridation bandwagon.

From his 1928 book titled, "Propaganda":
"In almost every act of our lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons [...] who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires that control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world." p. 3738 (I would add the sphere of nutrition, also)

"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society." p. 37

Many people know that fluoridated water is not recommended for mixing infant formulas because it essentially is something like 200 times the amount of fluoro found in breast milk naturally. Many people also know that osteo cancer rates for developing boys are far higher in fluoridated communities. A newer study, by Harvard, basically admits no long term studies have been done in the US on fluoridated water and its links to IQ drops, which they found were: 7 points lower on average with a 15pt deviation. http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/news/fea...jean-choi.html

If fluoride were used on a case by case medicinal basis, adjusted for weight/age/sex, MAYBE it could be administered just below the point that causes fluorosis to harden the enamel--if you had no respect for all the other organs, glands and bones that it effects negatively and calcifies. It's forced medication, with no dosage controls. PLAIN AND SIMPLE. Do you drink your suntan lotion before heading out in the sun? Why not?

It's pretty safe to say that Crohnnies should avoid fluoride ingestion if at all possible. That being said, minerals should be added to the RO/distilled water you do use.

Some pertinent studies about Fluoride's effects on digestion:
This link shows a study which suggests fluoride destoys microvilli and stops the production of mucus, essential for motility and general intestinal wall impermeability:

From here, , is an interesting excerpt with interesting source materials:

"Scanning electron microscopy studies of the stomach after the consumption of water with 1.2-3.2 ppm fluoride have shown a loss of mucus droplets and
microvilli, a cracked-clay appearance of the duodenal mucosa, and desquamated epithelium in the gastric mucosa.9,11

Fluoride reacts with gastric hydrochloric acid to form hydrofluoric acid in the stomach.1 Owing to the presence of un-ionized HF, hydrofluoric acid has tissue-penetrating and corrosive properties that can cause inflammation, petechiae, ulceration and other mucosal abnormalities in the stomach and proximal small intestine. Dyspepsia may arise with fluoride disturbing thyroid hormone function through enzyme inhibition.2,3,17-18

In conclusion, there is little doubt that fluoride in drinking water, at the levels used in fluoridation of about 0.851.0 ppm, may produce chronic ill health with
