No wonder Cedric wanted to hire Crystal, she has a wonderful inquiring mind and asked a key question.
“If fluoride is a medication, …, like for our teeth, shouldn’t it have been thoroughly tested and approved first?”
Well you would think so, especially as everyone needs to drink water, including the elderly and people with weak kidneys.
The literature suggests that some professionals might have argued that it’s a ‘nutrient’ but that is clearly not the case, especially when we are not talking about a naturally occurring substance, but rather, what is added is:
Hexafluorosilic Acid or Sodium Silicofluoride
or a combinations of the two (typically also containing various other industrial outputs such as lead and cadmium).
Crystal found statements from Europe and the US confirming that fluoride is not an essential nutrient.
The European note above also contains some interesting and often overlooked chemistry:
“Fluorine is a gaseous halogen with an atomic mass of 18.998 Da. It is the most electronegative and reactive of all elements, and therefore it occurs naturally only in anionic form, i.e. as fluoride (F-), after reaction with metallic elements or with hydrogen.”
Thus, fluorine is a gaseous halogen and becomes fluoride only when combined with something.
For example, there is such a thing a calcium fluoride and many assume that this is what is added to our water.
Further, many assume that its sodium fluoride that is added, but in fact ‘pharmaceutical grade sodium fluoride’ created under laboratory conditions for that purpose.
This is what Dr Andrew Harms assumed he was approving the addition of, to water supplies in South Australia, when he was President of the Australian Dental Association (South Australian Branch).
As soon as Doctor Harms discovered that this was not the case, he immediately withdrew his support and amazingly, when he communicated this, his colleagues shunned him and told him not to upset their sponsors.
How is it that such a highly qualified man, so involved in this process, can come out in public with such a warning and BE VIRTUALLY IGNORED by his profession and our politicians?
Crystal also found a letter on this point from the USA (see below)- which shows that adding fluoride to our water is medication without consent- breaching one of the supposed foundations of our medical system.
As it is a medicine and not a nutrient, shouldn’t each batch of waste be tested before it is added to water?
After all, the ingredients of toxic waste can vary widely and the guidelines define ‘Fluoride’ as INCLUDING ANY compound of fluorine.
No wonder Tommy, Crystal and Cedric were all surprised about this.
“Sodium fluoride used for therapeutic effect would be a drug, not a mineral nutrient. Fluoride has not been determined essential to human health. A minimum daily requirement for sodium fluoride has not been established.”
