Fluoride Kills Magnesium

Fluoride Kills Magnesium

On April 7th, 1997, the USDA stated that all fluoride toothpastes sold in the U.S. must carry a poison warning on the label. It reads: “WARNING: Keep out of reach of children under 6 years of age. If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, seek professional help or contact a poison control center immediately.”

A tube of commercial toothpaste contains twice the amount of fluoride to kill a child: 143 mg in each tube. The killing dose for a 2-yr old is 60mg. For a 9-yr old it’s 120mg.



I’m bringing this to your attention because today I found a Children’s Chewable Multi-Vitamin with Fluoride that a child can chew and swallow. With 1mg fluoride per tablet and 100 in a bottle the accumulated dose is 100mg. And fluoride does accumulate in the body.

Make no mistake about it, fluoride is poisonous. Yet, most water supplies are treated with fluoride based on a faulty study that claimed children had fewer dental cavities in areas where fluoride was naturally high in the water.

You can read 10 Fluoride Facts on the Fluoride Action Network website.

When I wrote Magnesium Heals Cipro Damage I was warning people that fluoride is in about 50% of prescribed drugs making them extra toxic in they way they disrupt magnesium biological processes. But I didn’t put enough emphasis on the Fluoride-Magnesium Interaction. In that article are the following facts:

1. “Fluoride ion clearly interferes with the biological activity of magnesium ion.” And since magnesium does so much in the body, the side effects are often too widespread to recognize or even quantify.

2. One of the prime locations of possible fluoride (F) and magnesium (Mg) interactions is the intestines. The increased F supply reduces intestinal Mg resorption, owing to high chemical affinity of both elements and production of MgF+ and MgF2.” When I read this, I realized that’s another reason why ReMag in it’s Pico-Ionic form works so well because it’s absorbed directly into the cells and doesn’t reach the intestines and therefore is not inhibitied in its activity by fluoride. Fluoride levels are rising because it’s in our drinking water and in everything made or mixed with water.

3. “The toxic effect of fluoride ion plays a key role in acute Mg deficiency.” This means if someone is already magnesium deficient, fluoride toxicity is more pronounced. That’s why some people are damaged by the antibiotic Cipro and others aren’t.

4. “Mg deficiency in plants may limit synthesis of chlorophyll, on which photosynthesis depends. Therefore, supplementation of Mg protects plants against toxic effects of fluoride compounds.” I’ve noticed a huge improvement in my outdoor plants since I’ve been applying magnesium to counteract the effect of fluoride in the water.

5. “Mg deficiency in animals reduces production of energy, relevant to the Mg-ATP system. Reduction of ATP levels affects in an unfavourable way many metabolic processes connected with the action of ATP (eg, metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, and active transport).” That statement speaks for itself.

6. “In summary, it can be stated that in intoxication with fluorine compounds, magnesium plays a protective role by countering and reducing the toxic effects of F.” Someone once asked me why she should spend money to take magnesium when it was just counteracted by fluoride! That’s like saying we shouldn’t bother eating because we just get hungry again. Magnesium will protect us against the toxic effects of fluoride and many other toxins.

Avoiding sugar and brushing your teeth after carbs and soda do much more for your teeth than fluoride. Even if fluoride gave some minor reduction in cavities it’s not worth it once you realize fluoride in any form kills magnesium.

The Fabulous Functions of Magnesium – Dr. Carolyn Dean MD ND

I’ve said many times that magnesium is responsible for the activity of 700-800 enzyme processes in the body. In the Aug 2017 edition of The Magnesium Miracle, I write about fourteen major functions that appear in a textbook on magnesium in a chapter called “Divalent Cation Metabolism: Magnesium.”

I’ll mention the first of the 14 functions and follow up with the rest in later blogs. Some of the language is very technical but I want to give you a sense of the sophistication of this simple mineral. As you read what magnesium is capable of doing, just imagine how many necessary functions are interrupted when a person is magnesium-deficient…….

Magnesium Helps Heal Cipro Damage – NaturalNews.com

I’ve edited the following information from a website called Antibiotics.org. http://www.antibiotics.org/ discussing the dangers of fluoroquinolone antibiotics.

In July 2008, the FDA imposed a black box warning on Cipro, Levaquin, Avelox and many other flouroquinolone antibiotics due to the serious side effect of tendon rupture causing long-term disability. A horrible irony is that Cipro is often prescribed post-op for tendon repair!

Here is a more complete list of side effects:

Tendonitis, Tendon Rupture, Tendon, Ligament, Joint and Muscle Damage, Vision Damage, Hearing Loss, Taste Perversion, Peripheral Neuropathy (Tingling, burning sensation), Insomnia, Nightmares, Anxiety Attacks, Depersonalization, Cognitive Disorders, Brain, Heart, Liver, Kidney, Pancreas, Blood and Endocrine Disorders, Severe Psychotic Reactions, Suicidal Thoughts or Actions Gastrointestinal Damage.

Drug interactions make the risk of injury with fluoroquinolones even higher. So the side effects could be even worse if you take a fluoroquinolone at the same time you are taking corticosteroids (Prednisone, Flovent, Nasarel, Azmacort, Advair Disku, Methylprednisolone Dospak, Elocon Cream, Desoximetasone Cream, and Sterapred) and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs – Motrin, Pamprin, Aleve, Advil, and Ibuprofen).
?It’s estimated that tens of thousands of people are damaged by quinolone antibiotics each year, and unfortunately most are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Misdiagnosis of these antibiotics can be called fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid diseases, myositis, heart problems or neuropaties of every severity and kind.

The effects of quinolone antibiotics are cumulative. Each person has a unique threshold of tolerance that once surpassed creates symptoms corresponding to various disorders, with long-lasting and permanent damage. Most people are exposed to quinolones through taking them as a drug prescription or through food consumption (most poultry and beef treated with these drugs).Read More


I have had a couple of comments questioning the doctors credentials and the validity of what is being said here about fluoride interfering with magnesium biological process. To back up that science is information below which comes from the Merks Veterinary Manual, which states:

“Fluoride is a cellular poison that interferes with the metabolism of essential metals such as magnesium, manganese, iron, copper, and zinc.”

It cannot be stated any clearer than that> Fluoride is a poison

You can click on the link below to take you to their site, but I have just post the most important part below.


 The Merk Veterinary Manual states that “FLUORIDE IS A CELLULAR POISON”

Overview of Fluoride Poisoning


By Barry R. Blakley, DVM, PhD, Professor, Department of Veterinary Biomedical Sciences, Western College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Saskatchewan

Fluoride exposure from the environment has been associated with natural contamination of rock, soil, and water or from industrial waste or smelting processes. Fluoride compounds have been added to human water supplies at concentrations of ~1 mg/kg to reduce dental caries. This recommendation is not universally accepted……


……. Acute fluoride exposure at high concentrations will cause corrosive damage to tissues. In contrast, chronic exposure, which is seen more frequently, causes delayed or impaired mineralization of bones and teeth. The solubility of fluoride correlates generally with the degree of toxicity. Fluoride is known to interact with various elements, including aluminum, calcium, phosphorus, and iodine. Fluoride is a cellular poison that interferes with the metabolism of essential metals such as magnesium, manganese, iron, copper, and zinc. Because bacterial metabolism may be affected in a similar manner, this attribute accounts for the use of fluoride in dental hygiene products. Soluble fluoride is rapidly absorbed; ~50% is excreted by glomerular filtration. More than 95% of the fluoride that is retained is deposited in the bones and teeth, forming hydroxyapatite after the interference with calcium metabolism and replacement of hydroxyl ions. At low levels of fluoride exposure, the solubility of the enamel is reduced, resulting in protection. At higher levels of exposure, the enamel becomes dense and brittle. If exposure occurs during pregnancy, developing bones and teeth are severely affected. Faulty, irregular mineralization of the matrix associated with altered ameloblastic, odontoblastic, or osteoblastic activity ultimately results in poor enamel formation, exostosis, sclerosis, and osteoporosis.


“In point of fact, fluoride causes more human cancer death, and causes it faster, than any other chemical.” – Dr. Dean Burk

  1. I would like more information on this it’s very interesting I have many allergies I can only take 11 queens I just turned 60 years old and have double knee replacement by surgeries left and right foot 5 surgeries on my right hand to on my left all tendon related I find this extremely interesting I’m in a lot of pain and any repeated motion crosses great problems now it seems to be in my hip flexor muscles


    1. If you are having tendon problems, one of the side effects of fluoride is calcification of ligaments and tendons. You may have a high intake of fluorides. If you have been on antibiotics or antidepressant or other fluoride based medication, drink a lot of tea , have teflon in your environment all of these could be adding to your body burden.
      I will post some links below for you to research.

    1. ‘Peer review’ is virtually worthless nowadays.
      Both ex editors-in-chief of the worlds 2 top medical journals say they can no longer believe anything they publish, as corporate finances have bought the results.


  2. I refuse to use flouride toothpaste etc…magnesium is so important. To many nasty things are being sold to us as supposedly healthy. Very few read up on horrible side effects. Between Big pharma and our so called food sources, way to many chemicals going into our bodies. No wonder disease is prevalent in our society. We trust what is made by science over what God created….I dont get it????

      Hope this helps


  3. We are looking for a filtration system and wondering if filtering drinking water is enough or if it should be the whole house. Can you recommend a system please? This article is very interesting. Thank you!


    1. A whole house water filter to remove fluoride would be very expensive. Depends on what you want to spend. What you get also depends on where you live. City or rural If you live in a fluoridated city I would recommend an ROE reverse osmosis system under the sink and add a whole house filter to pick up everything else. If you don’t have to deal with fluoride a whole filter would be fine.
      If you get an ROE system I would get something along this line.

      Look for reviews on each item you are looking at, before purchasing it.
      Good luck


  4. WOW 😯
    I have a severe magnesium, potassium and zinc vitamin defiencies. Along with severe allergic reactions to almost anything. All of this started developing around 2010 and I’m still dealing with the problems. Doctor’s don’t want to tell you exactly what’s causing the problems, but, through all of the testing, they definitely know the problems exist. So they know then, that they can’t leave label me as a hyperchondriac. So they start experiment to see what works. Well I’m the type of patient that not only wants a cure, but, dammit 🤨🤔😳
    I want to know why I have these problems, are they genectic or environmental, can it be passed down to my children, grandchildren and future generations of my family, but, as usual,
    Bless their little negative hearts, all of the so called professional doctor’s and medical specialist, just can’t figure it out, and do not want to admit it. 🤨😣🙄 Even when diagnosed with bone marrow tumors ( thank God not cancer ) as well as severe anemia,
    Why Bless their little hearts,
    All they could ask me was 😒😔
    Have you been exposed to extremely large amounts of radiation. 😒🙄😣🤨🤔😯 And, as usual, my answer is like, 🤨🤔🙄😒
    Are you friggin serious 🙁🙄🤨
    The answer is definitely no, unless I was nuked one night in my sleep. 🤨😒 So I just quit going to any doctor’s, unless, I’m dying, of course.
    So when I saw this article, I realized, that you must really be on to something and we’ll, all I can say is, 😯😏 thank you so much for posting this.
    This is truly valuable information. 🤗


    1. Thank you. I do what I can to educate people, so that they can avoid being harmed. We live in a toxic world and it is increasingly more difficult to stay healthy.
      As for the question that your doctors were asking about radiation, I have another website regarding wireless technology or really we should call it “microwave radiation”. Your health problem maybe related to possibly being near a wireless router, a smart meter, cell tower or all of those and your cell or home phone can add to that as well. I just got a radio frequency meter and found out that my new car has high levels of radio frequency and is irradiating me.
      As far as doctors, they have not been trained in finding the cause of your problem. They are trained in treating symptoms and that is mostly what they know, unless they take the time to further educate themselves in alternative medicine. There are good doctors out there and I follow several of them, but they are few and far between. That’s why they call it a doctors “practice”, because they really don’t know what they are doing and know little about healing the body. I have only been to the doctors once in the last 5 years and really it was a waste of my time. I have learned to be my doctor and do my own research.


  5. You can make your own toothpaste recipe;
    1 cup of baking soda
    3 teaspoons of cornstarch
    1 cup of mouth wash
    Heat up on top of stove till it thickens and it’s done. If it doesn’t thicken enough and its starting to boil add more cornstarch. It’s that simple people. Put it in a jar to use.


  6. My dentist told me to use 1.1% sodium fluoride toothpaste..when I said I heard that was harmful, he said no. Ugh, he even wants me to not rinse and leave on my teeth at night..that would mean I’m swallowing a lot of it!


    1. Bad advice on his part. His ignorance or brainwashing is showing.

      First sodium fluoride is a registered rat poison.

      Second leaving it in your mouth allows it to be absorb directly in your body.

      Here is an article written by a dentist which may provide more information.
      Stop Poisoning Yourself

      Here is another which will provide more information
      Jim Maxey DDS– Dental Confessions

      You may want to copy and show this to your dentist. Whatever you do, understand that it is your body and don’t let anyone coherence you into doing something that will cause you harm.
      Believe nothing, question everything

      Ignorance is not bliss, it is how we are all being used and abused.
      Knowledge is power


  7. This is very interesting I just recently finished a prescription of Cipro for a Bladder infection How much magnesium should one take and do you take it every day?


    1. I use magnesium spray and try to apply some everyday. Magnesium deficiency has been linked to an enlarged prostate, for which I have suffered. I have been managing it with magnesium and zinc. I try to avoid anything that may have fluoride in it.


    2. The best way to get magnesium is through your food if you can. Look for foods that have high amounts magnesium You can also speak to your doctor or you can research online as to what the recommended amount you should be taking. Hope this helps. Take care


  8. I suffer from borderline personality/dilusional disorder. Some doctors say it’s anxiety. Got my blood work done and my iron level was a 5! They said I was close to being hospitalized. Now take iron pills daily. My magnesium was low as well. I think this affects my mental health. I drink a lot of tap water at home. What do you suggest I do!?


    1. I would recommend get a reverse osmosis system or a distiller to avoid the fluoride and other toxic chemical that may be be in your water. Magnesium is important as it plays a part in hundreds of functions in your body. You could take magnesium supplements, but you need to talk to your doctor or do some research as to the recommended amount or type you should take. It is always best to get it from your food, so researching foods with magnesium is another option. Avoiding fluorides including toothpaste is always better for your overall health. If you browse my site you will find plenty of information on how fluorides negatively impacts our health. Hopefully this helps. Take care
