An Inconvenient Tooth – Fluoride Documentary

Best. Title. Ever!

So my last post was a video called 5 Reasons Why I love my Berkey Water Filter.
One of the reasons is that it is one of the few filtration systems that effectively removes fluoride.

Naturally this raised a lot of questions about fluoride.

Well it just so happens that I wrote a post about water fluoridation a couple years ago.
The fluorosilicic acid they are putting in our water is a toxic waste product of the phosphate fertilizer industry. It’s illegal to dump it in lakes and rivers, but somehow it’s ok to put it in our drinking water… Really.

Fluoride is extremely toxic. It’s bad for you and it isn’t helping your teeth.
It can contribute to a host of problems in your body especially thyroid function.

You can read all about the history of water fluoridation and the negative effects that fluoride has on your body here.

The day after my Berkey post I stumbled across a new documentary about water fluoridation that came out in late 2012 called “An Inconvenient Tooth”.

This is a really great compilation of interviews with experts on the subject and I learned a lot of new interesting things. But the only downside is that it’s almost 3 hours long.

But since it’s just interviews and no important visuals, if you don’t want to sit down and watch it, you can just press play and listen to it while you are doing something else
like yard work, house cleaning, exercising… I pulled it up on my iphone and listened to it on a three hour drive to Nashville a few days ago.

If you’re really pressed for time definitely listen to the first guy Paul Connett, a chemistry professor and the Executive Director of the Fluoride Action Network.

And I really liked Daniel Stockin as well, he’s an ex EPA guy. He’s on from 1:44 – 2:21.

    Would you recommend a Vitamix over
    A Breville Elite juicer? If so, why? Thanks

    Thank you for this info on flouride as I lived in Michigan in the summer for the past 11 years( flouride in the water) and now for about the past 4 years I have a thyroid problem and have to take medication which I really don’t like but haven’t found a natural alternative for it. Keep up the great work as I’m sure many more appreciate your info as much as I do. Patty

      Hi Patty
      Have you heard of this book? The Great Thyroid Scandal and How to Survive it. By Barry Durrant-Peatfield, Johanne Cluff, Josceline Cluff

      You might find it of interest.

    Can it be absorbed/assimilated thru the skin? My drinking water is clean, my personal products are clean…but that SHOWER head! Not good.
    Also, if worried about fluoride *naturally occurring* in teas – don’t steep as long. But it is a natural element, not the garbage someone else has decided for us to consume. :)
    It is incredible at what lengths they went to to get that poison into us. Very sad. For they know it is a poison. Nothing is being done to stop.

    I would suggest that, for those of us living in areas where the water is fluoridated, that one most definitely filter the water coming from your shower. Ous pores are open and we are breathing in this steamed water. there are pretty good filters that can be placed on the showerhead which minimize this effect.

      Unfortunately a shower head filter is not going to be able to remove any appreciable amount of whatever fluosilisic acid is added to the water supply. Chlorine yes. Fluorine compounds, no.

      That’s the most insidious thing fluosilic acid water poisoning; Just how difficult it is to remove and/or escape from. It finds its way into all sorts of food and beverage products. The body absorbs it into the skin when wearning clothes that have been laundered in poisoned water. And of course bathing is the other major transmission route.

      Your best bet is to install a whole house reverse osmosis water filtration system which usually removes over 80% of the poison.

      Aside from that, keeps your showers short and as cold as you can tolerate. Or just move to place where they don’t poison the water.

    This may seem like a stupid question, but I’m assuming this is the same as the fluoride the dentist “paints” on our children’s teeth? I refused this service for my child at the dentist last week, along with an unnecessary X-ray and they looked at me like I was crazy. A senior dentist actually came out to talk with me and said I was being ridiculous because a dental X-ray is, “just like being in the sun for 11 minutes”.

    1. Chris Wark

      Dental fluoride is actually pharmaceutical grade unlike the fluorosilicic acid they are dumping in our water supply.

  8. Len

    This all makes good, common, sense, but I am not one to start bad mouthing anything with out “seeing it with my own eyes”. Can anyone provide links to some of the science that backs up the claims regarding the adverse effects of fluoride in the public water supply? Have unbiased clinical trials shown the negatives?
