Fluoride – A Brief History
FluorINE is a trace mineral, found in daily life, but not recommended for consumption. FluorIDE and its compounds are a “chemical byproduct” and in this case toxic waste found in your water and toothpaste.
Fluoride is a known neurotoxin and:
More toxic than lead (don’t eat the paint, can’t sell your house, lead)
Slightly less toxic than arsenic (also a trace element, but commonly used in metal refining, pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, and cancer treatments because it essentially kills life).
Most common from fertilizer industries, but also the manufacturing of aluminum, cement, steel, phosphate, and nuclear material. It was costing the fertilizer industry lots of money to dispose of these “chemical byproducts” and they found a way to re-package it as a tooth and bone densifier, and SOLD IT to municipalities starting in Grand Rapids in 1945.
