From the August 2006 Idaho Observer:
Comment period closed; feds preparing to spray fruits, vegetables in commerce with fluorine-based pesticide
The Environmental Protection Agency opposes the fluoridation of water, but is preparing to enforce an administrative rule that will cause domestic and imported fruits and vegetables in commerce to be fumigated with "ProFume"—a fluorine-based pesticide. This is such an important topic that we have dedicated the entire page to it so our readers can be qualified to debate the issue with anyone who believes fluoridating produce is a good idea. It should also be noted that we have been following the work of the scientists and physicians who oppose the use of fluoride. They have always stuck to the adverse affects of fluoride and have stayed away from discussing the political "benefits" government may enjoy as a result of mass-medicating populations with systemic doses of fluoride. Until now. Take notice. We did.
from the Fluoride Action Network (FAN)
We need to keep a real close eye on this issue. If this goes ahead we absolutely cannot eat these foods. Fluoride is an extreme poison that has been foisted on us by the Government and vested interests in spite of the thousands of investigations that have proved it to be very deleterious to health.
Fluoride's affects at the limits of 4ppm which is the allowable limit in drinking water have been well documented. What is proposed as a fumigator for foods is 70ppm. Do the math....
The issue at hand
In a November 28, 2005 letter to Dow AgroSciences, Maureen Serafini, Director, NYS Bureau of Pesticides, approved sulfuryl fluoride (ProFume®) fumigant on all processed foods and a large number of raw food commodities in New York. These are the foods most Americans eat.
In response, FAN’s Pesticide Project Director, Ellen Connett, requested Director Serafini to revoke this approval.
Because sulfuryl fluoride breaks down to fluoride in the human body, fluoride is the endpoint of toxicological concern. In their approval, EPA approved the highest levels of fluoride residues in food in U.S. history. Fluoride is persistent and bio-accumulates in the human body.
Inhalation tests with all animal species exposed to sulfuryl fluoride revealed severe harm to the brain. Of particular concern was the finding of holes (vacuolation) in the white matter of the brain, and an abnormal softening (malacia) and cell death (necrosis) of brain tissue.
And it is no accident that the addition of flourides is being advocated at this time--Flouride is part of the "dumming down" process.
It is a little known fact that fluoride compounds were added to the drinking water of prisoners to keep them docile and inhibit questioning of authority, both in Nazi prison camps in World War II and in the Soviet gulags in Siberia.
Fluorides are medically categorized as protoplasmic poisons, which is why they are used to kill rodents.
"Fluoridation is the greatest case of scientific fraud of this century." ~Robert Carlton, Ph. D., former U. S. EPA scientist on "Marketplace" Canadian Broadcast Company, Nov. 24, 1992.
"Regarding fluoridation, the EPA should act immediately to protect the public, not just on the cancer data, but on the evidence of bone fractures, arthritis, mutagenicity and other effects."~William Marcus, Ph. D., senior EPA toxicologist, Covert Action, Fall 1992, p. 66
Fluoride Stupidity And Population Control
(Preferred Network, March 24, 2005)
"The real reason behind water fluoridation is not to benefit children's teeth. If this were the real reason there are many ways in which it could be done that are much easier, cheaper and far more effective. The real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the resistance of the masses to domination and control and loss of liberty.
When the Nazis under Hitler decided to go into Poland, both the German General Staff and the Russian General Staff exchanged scientific and military ideas, plans, and personnel, and the scheme of mass control through water medication was seized upon by the Russian Communists because it fitted ideally into their plan to communize the world. ...
I was told of this entire scheme by a German chemist who was an official of the great IG Farben chemical industries and was also prominent in the Nazi movement at the time. I say this with all the earnestness and sincerity of a scientist who has spent nearly 20 years’ research into the chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology of fluorine--any person who drinks artificially fluorinated water for a period of one year or more will never again be the same person—mentally or physically."
~Charles Perkins, Chemist, 10/2/54
Quoting Einstein`s nephew, Dr. E.H. Bronner (a chemist who had also been a prisoner of war during WWII) in a letter printed in The Catholic Mirror, Springfield, MA, January 1952:
"There is a sinister network of subversive agents, Godless "intellectual' parasites, working in our country today whose ramifications grow more extensive, more successful and more alarming each new year and whose true objective is to demoralize, paralyze and destroy our great Republic--from within if they can, according to their plan--for their own possession.
"The tragic success they have already attained in their long siege to destroy the moral fiber of American life is now one of their most potent footholds towards their own ultimate victory over us.
"Fluoridation of our community water systems can well become their most subtle weapon for our sure physical and mental deterioration.
"As a research chemist of established standing, I built within the past 22 years, 3 American chemical plants and licensed 6 of my 53 patents. Based on my years of practical experience in the health-food and chemical field, let me warn: Fluoridation of drinking water is criminal insanity, sure national suicide. Don`t do it."
Keep in mind that what was proposed at that time was water flouridation at 1ppm---what is being proposed now is 70ppm, and as it would be in foods, entirely unavoidable once these substances were consumed. DO THE MATH!
The Flouride Conspiracy
Some excerpts: Farben had developed plans during the war to fluoridate the occupied countries because it was found that fluoridation caused slight damage to a specific part of the brain, making it more difficult for the person affected to defend his freedom and causing the individual to become more docile towards authority. Fluoride remains one of the strongest anti-psychotic substances known, and is contained in twenty-five percent of the major tranquilizers. It may not seem surprising that Hitler’s regime practiced the concept of mind control through chemical means, but the American military continued Nazi research, exploring techniques to incapacitate an enemy or medicate an entire nation. As stated in the Rockerfeller Report, a Presidential briefing on CIA activities, "the drug program was part of a much larger CIA program to study possible means of controlling human behavior" (Stephen 1995).
At the end of World War II, the U.S. government sent Charles Eliot Perkins, a research worker in chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology, to take charge of the vast Farben chemical plants in Germany. The German chemists told Perkins of a scheme which they had devised during the war and had been adapted by the German General Staff. The German chemists explained of their attempt to control the population in any given area through the mass medication of drinking water with sodium fluoride, a tactic used in German and Russian prisoner of war camps to make the prisoners "stupid and docile"(Stephen 1995).
FAN Bulletin 630: EPA Union calls for "stay" on sulfuryl fluoride
July 25, 2006
Here is some fast breaking news: We have just received a copy of the letter that the EPA Union, which represents professionals at the EPA HQ in DC, has sent to their "boss" Mr. Stephen Johnson on the sulfuryl fluoride issue.
They are joining FAN, EWG, Beyond Pesticides and the Organic Consumers Asscoiation in calling for a "stay" on EPA’s approval of sulfuryl fluoride for use as a fumigant on food.
If you haven't done so already please add your voice in support of this effort to stop the further contamination of our food supply with fluoride. You can do this by signing the ONLINE letter at http://actionstudio.org/?go=2367. Please get your friends and family members to do the same. We only have till August 4 to stop this dangerous nonsense. It is quick, it is simple and it is important. If you have the time, add a first sentence of your own to personalize your letter.
THE NATIONAL TREASURY EMPLOY- EES UNION, CHAPTER 280
BEN FRANKLIN STATION
P.O. BOX 7672
WASHINGTON, DC 20044
July 25, 2006
Hon. Stephen L. Johnson, Administrator
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
1200 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20460
Dear Administrator Johnson:
I am writing at the direction of the Executive Board of Chapter 280, National Treasury Employees Union, representing the professional employees here at headquarters of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The Board asked me to write to you about our concern that the Agency is setting itself - and by implication its employees - up for further embarrassment over the increased tolerance levels for fluoride on food stuffs. These increased tolerances come in connection with the use of sulfuryl fluoride as a fumigant, replacing methyl bromide in this application.
The increased tolerances have been supported by the Agency by reference to another standard set by the Agency, namely its Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) for fluoride in drinking water, which is currently 4 milligrams per liter (4 mg/L). As you know, the National Research Council has very recently submitted a report to EPA stating that the 4 mg/L MCLG, a health-based standard, is not in fact protective of public health. For EPA to base tolerances for fluoride in foods, especially for foods to be consumed by infants and children who fall under the protection of the Food Quality Protection Act, flies in the face of both law and scientific integrity.
We sincerely hope that you will rescind the approval of sulfuryl fluoride as a food stuffs fumigant and the concomitant increased tolerances for residual fluoride on the foods. The Agency can cite the NRC report as the basis for this action, thus minimizing any further embarrassment to itself and the professional staff.
Please add my comments to the docket #: EPA-HQ-OPP-2005-0174 and EPA-HQ-OPP-2003-0373.
On behalf of the Executive Board, I am,
J. William Hirzy, Ph.D.
EPA Unions’ Call for National Moratorium & Congressional Investigation
In August 2005, eleven EPA Unions called on Congress to enact a nationwide moratorium on water fluoridation before, and until, a full-scale Congressional investigation into fluoridation occurs.
Write a letter to your local newspaper
Writing a letter to your local newspaper is an invaluable way of informing your community of the health and ethical concerns surrounding water fluoridation. Let the readers of your favorite paper know that there is no need to swallow fluoride; that the FDA has never approved any fluoride product designed to be ingested; that fluoride is the only chemical added to water that does not treat the water itself; that 98% of western Europe has rejected water fluoridation; that the fluoride chemical used for fluoridation is an unprocessed industrial waste product; that most people are already receiving too much fluoride from their toothpaste and diets; that recent research has linked fluoride to serious health problems including arthritis, hip fracture, Alzheimers disease, and cancer; and that readers can learn about the issue for themselves at www.fluoridealert.org.
Ask your local bookstore/library to carry "The Fluoride Deception"
In May, 2004, the much-anticipated book The Fluoride Deception by Chris Bryson was released. The book is an eye-opening, page-turning, and meticulously researched expose of the history and politics of fluoride. A must read for anyone interested in fluoride issues. Order a copy for yourself and request your nearby bookstore/library to order copies as well.
NOTE: Due to shortage of funds, some libraries may not be able to purchase the book. If this is the case in your area, please consider donating a copy to your local library. The Fluoride Deception is available through The IO (see ad next page).
Tell your friends and family
There should be no underestimating the power of word-of-mouth communication. Tell your friends and family about what you have learned concerning fluoride. Let them know that the benefits have been greatly exaggerated and the risks ignored; that the vast majority of western Europe has rejected water fluoridation and yet has experienced the same decline in tooth decay as the U.S.; that the scientists and professionals at EPA’s Headquarters Union in Washington, D.C., have recently called for a "national moratorium" on fluoridation; and that more than 70 U.S. communities have rejected fluoridation since 1999.
Let them also know about the Fluoride Action Network!
Find out if your own community’s water is fluoridated
Call up your local water utility or your local Department of Health and ask if your community adds fluoride to the water. If it does fluoridate, write a letter to the paper, tell your friends, start a group, and start thinking of creative and effective ways to inform your community about the unnecessary hazards posed by water fluoridation.
Begin a Ballot Initiative in Your Town
One way of stopping fluoridation in your town is to start a petition drive to get the issue of water fluoridation on the local ballot. For unfluoridated areas, this can be an effective means of ensuring that fluoridation never begins in your area. Sample ballot initiatives—used successfully by various communities across the United States—can be accessed online at www.keepersofthewell.org.
Ask your local grocery stores to provide a non-fluoride toothpaste alternatives
Many grocery stores and pharmacies these days only carry fluoridated toothpastes. This in turn deprives many consumers of the choice to not use fluoride. Ask your local grocery stores and pharmacies to provide a non-fluoride alternative. If the store at first ignores your request, start a customer petition. The more customers a store hears from the greater likelihood they will change their policy.
The FAM article came with links to several peer-reviewed fluoride studies and other fluoride-related information. If you are not familiar with the health complications associated with fluoride exposure (or the political advantages of exposing people to fluoride), then now is obviously the time to get familiar with the topic. If you do understand the physiological and political effects of fluoride, then now is the time to tell everyone you know. Check out the following links:
