Hi all,

Expect there will be a lot of comments to this but I am brave enough to raise it. Scandanavia and all countries in Europe have stopped adding fluoride to drinking water. Fluoride is said to make your body absorb extra aluminium. Where does the aluminum go? The brain. And this is the metal that shows up alarmingly in the brains of people with Az.

Fluoride is a waste product (some would say poison) from the fertilizer industry. "Fluoride is known to be more toxic than lead and only slightly less toxic than arsenic. Because of its know toxicity, fluoride powder was at one time used as a dust to kill lice on chickens and as the main toxin in rat baits. There is enough fluoride in one large tube of toothpaste to be fatal to a small child. Toxic levels of fluoride can be visibly seen by fluorosis.....

With regard to soft tissue involvement, studies were presented that dealt with neurological lesions (nerve damage). They ascribed paralysis to direct action of fluoride on the central nervous system in addition to the effect of pressure on motor nerves by encroachment of fluorotic bone.

Studies also showed that thyroid dysfunction, heart disease and abnormal electrocardiograms and cerebrovascular disease were more prevalent in the prevelant fluorosis areas. An association was shown between chronic fluoride intoxication and lowered intelligence as measured by IQ tests; chromosomal abnormalities; decreased immunity; increased senile cataracts; and cancer.

Fluoride is also associated with oesteoporosis - "Statistically there is a higher incidence of hip fracture in residents of fluoridated areas. This includes U.S. studies published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) by Dr. S.J. Jacobsen in 1990 and Christa Danielson and others in 1992." quoted from Health-Science.

My dad who is in Stage II alzheimers. he left the city, where floride was added to the water supply, and moved to the country where there is a drilled well, no floride. He also wasn't nearly as attentive to brishing as is recommended, ie. he might have brushed one every two or three days, and as a result has very few teeth left in his mouth. Now, as for the aluminum, well, that's another matter. He ate cabbage boiled in an aluminum pot, also boiled everything else in aluminum cookware, most of his life. However, I am still convinced that he inherited the alzheimers from his mother who also had alzheimers. I am beginning to have memory problems, and confusion, but I attribute this to being locked up 24/7/365 with the only other person in my universe being my Dad (an alzheimers victim). It's like the brain waves are contagious. Anyway, it will be interesting to see how others respond.
