The Fluoride Fiasco (The Iodine Rescue)

Tea for Health (?):

Sadly, another source of food born fluoride is tea. Bummer…
Tea is made from the leaves of the plant ‘Camellia sisensis’. There are many varieties, sub-varieties, and hybrids, but they are all of the Camellia sisensis family.
Due to the high levels of fluoride in tea; (home brewed, instant and ready-made tea drinks), people who regularly drink tea increase their risk of developing fluoride toxicity. One manifestation of fluoride toxicity (there are many) is skeletal fluorosis – a debilitating bone disease often misdiagnosed as arthritis.
Some folks believe that the fluoride in the tea plant is ‘natural’ fluoride, and therefore isn’t poison. Wrong!

True, some fluoride compounds are even worse than that which is typically picked up by food plants and livestock. Compounds spiking utility water are an example of the worst of the worst.

Tea is legally exempt from contaminant level adherence defined by government.

Fluoride levels in tea are much higher than the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) set for fluoride in drinking water, which is 4 parts per million (ppm). Utility waters often have between .7 and 2 ppm, teas have been measured in the range of over 3ppm on average and up to 6ppm or more.
The tea plant, Camellia s, absorbs fluoride from its environment more effectively than most other food plants, as the plant ages, fluoride continues to be absorbed and deposited in the leaves; younger leaves have less fluoride than the older ones. So, for example, white tea (which is only the young leaves) has less fluoride than green, black or oolong teas, which are made from – or include mature leaves. Making ‘tea’ from the leaves, roots, flowers Etc. of other herbs will in most cases relieve one of the fluoride concerns.

Camellia is popular worldwide, but it is only one of dozens (hundreds) of plants which make fine, healthful tea.

One cup of some varieties of tea can provide more fluoride than a dose of some fluoride based drugs, and, fluorides in teas are found together with aluminum. The combination of aluminum and fluorine in tea is a great concern; fluorides associated with aluminum, display an increased ability to cause harm, particularly neurological and kidney damage. And aluminum absorption is increased in the presents of fluorine, not good.

Nobody needs more aluminum (no reliable evidence exists that aluminum is an essential nutrient) and fortunately aluminum is not particularly well absorbed (nevertheless, please don’t use aluminum in the kitchen), but aluminum-fluoride, as found in tea is indeed sucked right into tissues of the body, other compounds then form and trouble ensues.

It’s easy, to get a milligram of fluoride (too much) from a single cup of tea, and a recent study detected as much as 9 milligrams per liter in some varieties; that equates to more than 2 milligrams in one 8oz. cup. Obviously, if you steep your tea with the poison liquid known as fluoridated water, you’re really packing it in. Yikes!

As good as it is, as many healthful compounds as it offers, excessive tea drinking, because of the heavy fluoride load must be considered potentially harmful. In general, the more mature the leaf, the richer the tea will be in toxic fluoride.


The Bomb and Fluoridated People/Planet
Like some other gifts that keep on hurting (such as herbicides and fungicides fashioned from WW1 nerve gas, and poison phosphate fertilizer spun-off from WW2 munitions), the genesis of the ‘fluoride for Health’ campaign is actually in the birth of the Atomic Age. The Manhattan Project.

Sanitization of the facts, a PR campaign

Fluoridation is a triumph not of medical science but of US government and corporate spin.
…in the light of hundreds of once-secret WWII documents, some now declassified papers of the Manhattan Project (the U.S. military group that built the atomic bomb), we know…

Industrial plants in New Jersey, Tennessee, New Mexico, and Colorado (and who knows where else) were feverishly extracting, refining and using fluoride, and used it in huge quantities to enrich uranium starting in the 40s.

Fluoride was the key chemical in atomic bomb development and its production; millions of tons were used for the manufacture of bomb-grade uranium and plutonium for nuclear weapons throughout the Cold War. One of the most toxic chemicals known, fluoride became recognized (by insiders) as the most serious chemical health hazard of the U.S atomic bomb program. The illegitimate sibling of ‘The Bomb’ is of course, Nuke Power, which also uses and releases massive quantities of fluoride (75-100 tons of fluorine gas used, and 10 or more tons of fluorine released, for each and every (of 104 reactors in the U.S.) Nuke reactor ANNUALLY in the U.S.). Fluoride, fluoride everywhere, you cannot hide anywhere.

Before World War II, fluorine could only be generated in very small quantities for experimental purposes and could not be purchased at any price. The breakthrough to large scale production came from the Manhattan Project’s efforts. Massive quantities of fluorine were necessary to separate and concentrate the uranium isotopes.

Since World War II, huge quantities of fluorine have been used to produce organofluorine compounds (compounds where fluorine is attached to carbon). These include chlorinated fluorocarbons (CFCs); Teflon (polytetrafluoroethylene), pesticides and pharmaceutical drugs. Fluorine is not ‘produced’ or ‘mined’ for water treatment, the stuff in tap water is an industrial waste product; the water is simply the DUMP for the waste.

The fluoride added to tap water is a poisonous industrial waste; the water coming into American homes is simply the DUMP for the hazardous waste!

The companies involved in fluoride production, for the sake of building the bomb(s) and the U.S. government, knew that fluoride exposure, even in minute doses was harmful, dreadfully harmful (scores of people, farm animals and food crops were diseased and dying from airborne fluoride near the industrial plants and research facilities and before long, unfortunate ‘down-winders’ were breaking bones and coughing blood too). Whole communities and large tracts of land were contaminated.

Protection from lawsuits, which would inevitably be filed, and already were being filed by some of those injured, was needed because this would threaten the profits of the corporations and the aim of the U.S. Mega Bomb project. The plan involved portraying the unquestionably toxic (in any amount) fluoride as something of benefit to human health. The atomic super-spin was in.

By the way, highest ranking military officials projected that Japan would peacefully surrender before the first bomb was even completed, so the devastation visited upon millions (hundreds-of-thousands of humans) on two Japanese islands was completely unnecessary militarily, and saved NO American/Allied lives (by numbers, not specific individuals). (The bomb effort however, did kill many Americans, stretching out for decades after the Japanese mushroom clouds, via radiation exposure; personnel at/near test sites, aerial bomber crews, reporters and photographers sent to Japan after the drops, down winders throughout the Southwest U.S., Etc). In fact, General (and later president) Dwight Eisenhower – then Supreme Commander of Allied Forces, and the officer who created most of America’s WWII military plans for Europe and Japan – said: “The Japanese were ready to surrender and it wasn’t necessary to hit them with that awful thing”.
Saving American lives was not the purpose of the Manhattan Project! (This is a matter of record). It’s another shameful, but true story. It was/is a lose-lose situation, in fact, as deadly as the nuke bomb and nuke power generation is radiologically, the first lawsuits against the U.S. A-bomb program were not over radiation, but over fluoride damage. The bulk of the original ‘proof’ that fluoride is safe for humans in low doses was generated by A-bomb program scientists, who had been secretly ordered to provide “evidence useful in litigation” against defense contractors for fluoride injury to citizens.

Much of the baloney which resulted in claims (lies) that fluoride exposure was safe, was ‘invented’ by those working in the classified operation, ‘Program F’, (yep, the effort was code-named ‘Program F’) and interestingly, they did their dirty work at the same institution, the University of Rochester, where horrific human radiation experiments took place, in which unsuspecting hospital patients were injected with doses of radioactive plutonium. Yeah, you could trust those guys.
The propaganda campaign was spearheaded by the world’s preeminent spin-master (hired as the public relations strategist), the nephew of Sigmund Freud, Edward L. Bernays.
Utilizing Freudian theory, Bernays, the grandfather-master of the science of ‘spin’ did a stellar job of selling poison as popcorn. The techniques practiced in the fluoridation campaign have been perfected and are now used by government and business against the citizenry everyday.

It’s not my aim, and it wouldn’t be fair to oversimplify the shaky period pre-during-and post WW2, but the facts are as stated…

We all know the adage about history repeating itself; many have said the same thing with different words. I like the short and sweet way that former Governor, Jesse Ventura put it, simply; “Learn from history or you’re doomed to repeat it”.
In a case such as the Fluoride Fiasco in which the deadly spin was born several generations in the past, the dangerous tipping point, where no one still alive was on both sides (the before and after) approaches fast. After all eyewitnesses are gone and no direct lineage to the truth remains, ‘history’ can more easily be ‘edited’ and ‘laundered’ to suit the trouble-makers and hurt the people… and the apathetic public just forgets anyway, and tends to accept what has become the status quo. Accepting the Fluoride status quo will blow the whole deal (any chance of a good life) for the kids. Forget The Alamo, remember (and demand a resolution to) The Fluoride Fiasco!

The now well-worn spin program characterizing water and dental fluoridation, after decades of lie repetition, has long ago ‘normalized’ the idea. This intentionally deceptive propaganda campaign has normalized the ridiculousness; normalized practices and policies which surely are born of insanity; and which are ridiculous at best and deadly for certain.
