THE NOT SO HIDDEN HUMAN COST OF WATER FLUORIDATION


Silicofluoride chemicals are added to all public water supplies in only a few countries in the World. The most fluoridated country in the world is the Republic of Ireland. No toxicological testing has ever been undertaken on the silicofluoride chemicals added to drinking water. Ass far back as 1961 Dr Feltmann documented in clinical trials that a sub group of the population will have a negative health response from exposure to fluoride in their diet. Symptoms included gastrointestinal upsets, skin rashes, mouth sores, migraine like headaches, arthritic-like pains, dryness of the throat, excessive water consumption, frequent need to urinate, chronic fatigue, depression, nervousness and respiratory difficulties.

What is now evident is that Ireland has the highest incidence of neurological disease in the world as well as one of the highest incidences of cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic muscleoskeletal pain, hypothyroidism, childhood epilepsy and many other disease including substance abuse all of which associated with exposure to silicofluoride compounds and fluoride in general.

Ireland also have one of the highest incidences of dental fluorosis amongst youth which demonstrates a chronic overexposure of the population to fluoride in early life. Many professional public health organisation internationally have warned that infants should not be exposed to fluoride in early life yet Ireland has the highest incidence  of bottle fed infants in the world and all such babies are exposed to silicofluoride compounds when tap water is used to make up bottle formula food.

Fluoride is now known to be a risk factor in developing many of the most serious health problems prevalent in the population of Ireland today. This includes neurological and cardiovascular disease, type ii diabetes, osteoporosis, hypercalcemia, hypothyroidism, sarcoidosis, skeletal fluorosis, skeletal muscular disorders and sudden death syndrome. The incidence of these diseases in Ireland is far above the global average.

It has been medically documented that between 1-5% of the population may be hypersensitive to exposure to fluoride. This latter observation means that in Ireland, between 46.000 and 200,000 people will evidence some sensitivity in one way or another to drinking fluoridated water or consuming tainted foodstuffs contaminated with fluoridated water in the processing or cooking of foodstuffs. These figures may indeed reflect the enormous prevalence of neurological illness as documented for Ireland.


According to the World Health Organisation the global average for neurological disease is 6.3 percent of the population, yet according to the Department of Health’s own statistics the prevalence of neurological disease in Ireland is now at 17.3 per cent of the population. That represents a trult astonishing 770,000 people who have been diagnosed with some form of neurological illness in Ireland.

The recent scientific study carried out in Ireland on the effects of ingesting fluoride finds that the consequences of it are astounding when you look at the statistics for Ireland compared to any other country in the world. Apart from neurological illness Ireland also has twice the global average of osteoporosis, one of the highest levels in the world of childhood epilepsy and certain type of cancers associated with the digestive tract, including cancer of  the liver, kidney, stomach and intestinal cancer.  

On top of this the number of adults under 65 years of age with cardiovascular disease has quadrupled, add to this the fact that some 400,000 people are now believed to be diabetic. This is extremely alarming given that the World Health organisation itself has warned that patients with kidney dysfunction may be particularly susceptible to fluoride toxicity in the body.

In addition to diabetics it is now known that a further 300,000 people in Ireland over the age of 50 have osteoporosis. The recently published Irish Longitudinal Study of Ageing, by trinity College Dublin, found that musculoskeletal pain involving bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves was the most widely reported condition amongst the wider Irish population with a prevalence of 40%.  Remarkably, it is estimated that there are approximately 585,000 people in Ireland who suffer from chronic pain representing 36% of all households in Ireland.

Musculoskeletal pain is one of the most easily recognisable symptoms of skeletal fluorosis brought on form excessive quantities of fluoride deposited in the skeleton and soft tissues. This is particularly disturbing as it is now known that 1 in 3 children have dental fluorosis exhibiting a visible sign of chronic overexposure to fluoride in their bodies.
