Fluoride Dangers
The truth is out there, you just have to look for it.

Fluoride is a known toxic poison.
If you dumped fluoride in a river, you would be charged with toxic dumping. Fluoride attacks the nervous system and is commonly used in rat Poison. Go read the back of your toothpaste and see what is says about what you should do if you swallowed toothpaste.

Legislators attempt to force fluoride on
New Jersey - Including Wayne NJ

(NaturalNews) New Jersey is one of the few U.S. states where

the vast majority of its residents are not forcefully medicated
with fluoride chemicals via their water supplies. Only about 20
percent of New Jersey residents, in fact, are exposed to fluoride
in water, which makes it the fourth least fluoridated state in the
country. But state legislators in the Garden State are currently
trying to change this by passing legislation that would mandate
all public water supplies in the state to fluoridate their water.

Vitale (http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/members/BIO.asp?Leg=175) and Loretta Weinberg (http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/members/BIO.asp?Leg=260), NJ Senate Bill S-959, the New Jersey Public Water Supply Fluoridation Act, and its identical companion legislation, Assembly Bill 1811, would require "the fluoridation of all public community water systems in New Jersey."

According to the Fluoride Action Network (FAN), a health freedom advocacy group, the New Jersey legislature has been working towards enacting these new fluoridation laws without telling the public or seeking appropriate public input. And outcry from those who oppose the legislation -- the NJ League of Municipalities, the NJ Sierra Club, the NJ Business and Industry Association, the citizens' group No Fluoride New Jersey, and even a number of local water companies and utilities across the state have all objected -- appears to be going unheard.

"Since fluoride's benefits are topical, it makes no sense to swallow fluoride and makes even less sense to put fluoride into drinking water when fluoridated toothpaste is available to everyone," said Paul Connett, PhD, executive director of FAN and co-author of the book The Case Against Fluoride. "Not only does this unfunded mandate completely strip away all local control of fluoridation, but requires local taxpayers to fund the estimated $5 billion start-up costs and the annual $1 billion cost to maintain the practice."

Fluoride is a toxic waste byproduct known to damage the brain, vital organs

Besides failing to make an appropriate public announcement about the bills, legislators are also withholding the fact that the toxic fluoride chemicals being proposed for water supplies is not natural, and is actually a waste byproduct of the phosphate fertilizer and aluminum production industries. As a result, those who drink it are exposed not only to fluoride's toxic effects, which include brain, thyroid, and other organ damage, but they are also exposed to arsenic, lead, radionuclides, and various other toxic chemicals that typically contaminate it.

More than 25 published papers have shown that fluoride chemicals reduce IQ levels in children, and many people across the U.S. today have dental fluorosis, a condition where teeth become mottled and brittle, as a result of overexposure to fluoride. It is also a drug that has never been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which means its deliberate addition to public water is an illegal form of practicing medicine without a license or proper prescription.

There is also no way to properly dose consumption of fluoride when added to water, as individuals of all ages and sizes consume varying amounts of the toxic chemical. This means that individuals with compromised immune system or health problems, as well as babies, are at an extreme risk of fluoride poisoning just from routine exposure to fluoridated water in their everyday lives.

When Fluoridation Is Stopped, Cavities Do Not Increase
Further evidence of the ineffectiveness of water fluoridation is that the scientific literature shows that – when fluoridation of water supplies is stopped – cavities do not increase (but may in some cases actually decrease). See this, this, this, this, this and this.

Toxicologists are starting to notice the harmful effects of fluoride compounds. Ingested in high doses, fluoride is indisputably toxic; it was once commonly used in rat poison. Hydrogen fluoride is regulated as a hazardous pollutant in emissions from chemical plants and has been linked to respiratory illness. Even in toothpaste, sodium fluoride is a health concern. In 1997 the Food and Drug Administration toughened the warning on every tube to read, “If more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed, get medical help or contact a poison-control center right away.”

Prominent leaders of pro-water fluoridation publicly admit they were wrong
John Colquhoun, DDS, Principal Dental Officer for Auckland, New Zealand and chair of that country’s Fluoridation Promotion Committee, reviewed New Zealand’s dental statistics in an effort to convince skeptics that fluoridation was beneficial and found that tooth decay rates were the same in fluoridated and nonfluoridated places, which prompted him to re-examine the classic fluoridation studies. He withdrew his support for it in “Why I Changed my Mind About Water Fluoridation” (Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 1997;41:29—44).

Richard G. Foulkes, MD, a health care administrator and former assistant professor in the Department of Health Care and Epidemiology at the University of British Columbia also switched from pro to anti-water fluoridation after studying the issue. And Dr. Hardy Limeback PhD, DDS – one of the 12 scientists who served on the 2006 National Academy of Sciences review of fluoride, and Head of Preventive Dentistry at University of Toronto – wrote “Why I am Now Officially Opposed to Adding Fluoride to Drinking Water”

The Harvard School for Public Health reports:
For years health experts have been unable to agree on whether fluoride in the drinking water may be toxic to the developing human brain. Extremely high levels of fluoride are known to cause neurotoxicity in adults, and negative impacts on memory and learning have been reported in rodent studies, but little is known about the substance’s impact on children’s neurodevelopment. In a meta-analysis, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang for the first time combined 27 studies and found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children. Based on the findings, the authors say that this risk should not be ignored, and that more research on fluoride’s impact on the developing brain is warranted.

Harvard Announcement:
The researchers conducted a systematic review of studies…. Anna Choi,  research scientist in the Department of Environmental Health at HSPH [and] Philippe Grandjean, adjunct professor of environmental health at HSPH, and their colleagues collated the epidemiological studies of children exposed to fluoride from drinking water. The China National Knowledge Infrastructure database also was included to locate studies published in Chinese journals. They then analyzed possible associations with IQ measures in more than 8,000 children of school age; all but one study suggested that high fluoride content in water may negatively affect cognitive development.

The average loss was only half of one IQ point, but some studies suggested that even slightly increased fluoride exposure could be toxic to the brain. Thus,children in high-fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ scores than those who lived in low-fluoride areas. The children studied were up to 14 years of age, but the investigators speculate that any toxic effect on brain development may have happened earlier, and that the brain may not be fully capable of compensating for the toxicity.

“Fluoride seems to fit in with lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain drain,” Grandjean says. “The effect of each toxicant may seem small, but the combined damage on a population scale can be serious, especially because the brain power of the next generation is crucial to all of us.”

Numerous other government reports have shown fluoride’s adverse impacts on intelligence: [A] 2006 National Academy of Science [report ] reviews the scientific studies which have been performed on fluoride, and concludes: It is apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain and the body by direct and indirect means. (bottom of page 222).

United States National Academy of Science report, a Harvard meta-review of 27 studies, and many other government and university studies show that fluoride lowers IQ and causes a variety of other serious health problems.

Studies have shown that fluoride toxicity can lead to a wide
variety of health problems, including:

• Increased lead absorption
• Disrupts synthesis of collagen
• Hyperactivity and/or lethargy
• Muscle disorders
• Thyroid disease
• Arthritis
• Dementia
• Bone fractures
• Lowered thyroid function
• Bone cancer (osteosarcoma)
• Inactivates 62 enzymes and inhibits more than 100
• Inhibited formation of antibodies
• Genetic damage and cell death
• Increased tumor and cancer rate
• Disrupted immune system
• Damaged sperm and increased infertility
