NEW STUDY SHOWS GRAVE IMPLICATIONS FROM INTERACTION OF ALUMINUM AND LOW DOSE FLUORIDE

Promoters of fluoridation can no longer get away with the “unequivocal statement” that fluoride is a “free ion” in water”, OR that “it completely dissociates and doesn’t react with other minerals in drinking water.”

Following the Varner, et al aluminium fluoride studies in which 80% of the experimental rats died before the end of the experiment the United States Environmental Protection Agency was sufficiently alarmed to push the National Toxicology Program (NTP) to do further research.

Varner and associates appear to have found TOXIC SYNERGISTIC ACTION between FLUORIDE and ALUMINIUM in drinking water. This has now been made a part of PUBLIC RECORD in the US FEDERAL REGISTER as of December 4, 2000.

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) concurs with the EPA and has formally called for NTP to commission studies.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

For the first time, synergistic action is officially acknowledged, along with the fact that FLUORIDE in the water COMBINES WITH OTHER MINERALS.

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences has commissioned a Review of Toxicological Literature on Aluminium Compounds.

ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE AND DEMENTIA – IMPORTANT NEW STUDY SHOWS GRAVE IMPLICATIONS FROM INTERACTION OF ALUMINUM AND LOW DOSE FLUORIDE

The latest edition of the peer-reviewed medical journal, Brain Research, (vol.784:l998), reveals that aluminum-induced neural degeneration in rats is greatly enhanced when the animals were fed low doses of fluoride. The presence of fluoride enhanced the bio-availability of aluminum (Al) causing more aluminum to cross the blood-brain barrier and become deposited in the brain. The aluminum level in the brains of the fluoride-treated group was double that of the controls.

The pathological changes found in the brain tissue of the animals given fluoride and aluminum-fluoride were similar to the alterations found in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

The authors stated that “While the small amount of AlF3 in the drinking water of rats required for neurotoxic effects is surprising, perhaps even more surprising are the neurotoxic results of NaF (sodium fluoride) at the dose given in the present study (2.1 ppm NaF).” (2.1 parts per million NaF equals about l.0 milligram fluoride ion per litre of water- the same level found in 1.0 ppm “optimally” fluoridated drinking water.1).

This study confirms what the authors of a 1995 study, published in the Journal Neurotoxicology and Teratology, predicted when they found fluoride-induced behavioural disruptions (related to drug-induced hypeide-fed rats, damage could be expected in the hippocampus of the brain (central processor which integrates inputs from the environment, memory, etc.). The new study also confirms the work of scientists in China, published in 1996, which showed fluoride to adversely affect children’s IQ.

When contacted by phone, Dr. Phyllis Mullenix, one of the authors of the l995 study, said that she is “not at all surprised” that the new study found pathological brain changes in fluoride-treated rats. She added: “They came up with the evidence which made our prediction come true.”

The latest paper is yet another study which shows that even low levels of fluoride may have serious health implications for people and that the effect is enhanced in the presence of other neurotoxins like aluminum.

1 The formula for converting NaF to fluoride ion is ppm x 45%. Thus, 2.1 ppm x 45% = .95 ppm (ppm =mgs /litre).

NOTES FOR EDITOR:

TITLE REFERENCE: Chronic administration of aluminum-fluoride or sodium-fluoride to rats in drinking water: alterations in neuronal and cerebrovascular integrity; Julie A. Verner, Karl F. Jensen, William Horvath, Robert L.Isaacson, Brain Research, Vol.784:l998, Elsevier Science.

This is the latest edition to the hundreds of studies showing the adverse effects of fluoride.

  • Recently declassified documents,obtained under the U.S Freedom of Information legislation, show that central nervous system (CNS) effects caused by fluoride were known to, but concealed by, the US government during the l940s.
  • Fluoride is a cumulative, protoplasmic poison, more toxic than lead. It is being deliberately added to the drinking water of MILLIONS of people in the United States, whether they want it or not- for the stated reason that “it can reduce tooth decay in children.”
  • Adverse health effects published over the decades are consistently DENIED by the government’s advisers on water fluoridation.
