Since fluoridated industrial effluent is better than mothers’ milk, the standard of proof here should be very very high. We need lots and lots more studies and we need to know the exact mechanisms (down to the individual itemized atoms) by which fluoride could possibly result in symptoms which can be mistaken for dementia. Cuz heaven knows it couldn’t possibly cause dementia.
Or we could stop pretending that our medical institutions are all-knowing and beyond corruption.
It is beyond belief that this tobacco science has persisted for so long. Or it would be if it wasn’t a bonanza for the aluminum, fertilizer and uranium industries. Not to mention the connection with mass social control.
Scientists have created a map that shows the global burden of dementia. The memory-robbing disorder skyrocketed by a staggering 117 per cent between 1990 and 2016. And experts warn it may more than double again from 43.8million cases two years ago to 100million by 2050. Turkey had the most cases with 1,192 sufferers per 100,000 of its population in 2016, followed by Brazil at 1,037 per 100,000. Nigeria and Ghana had the lowest rates at 397 and 406 per 100,000, respectively….
By 2008, 41% of people (73.2 million) in Brazil were getting artificially-fluoridated water.
Water fluoridation was first adopted in Brazil in the city of Baixo Guandu, ES, in 1953. A 1974 federal law required new or enlarged water treatment plants to have fluoridation, and its availability was greatly expanded in the 1980s, with optimum fluoridation levels set at 0.8 mg/L. Today, the expansion of fluoridation in Brazil is a governmental priority; Between 2005 and 2008, fluoridation became available to 7.6 million people in 503 municipalities. As of 2008, 3,351 municipalities (60.6%) had adopted fluoridation, up from 2,466 in 2000.
Occurrence and problems of high fluoride waters in Turkey: an overview
Abstract: Endemic dental fluorosis was first observed in Turkey in Isparta Province, located in the SW of Anatolia, with mottled enamel related to the high levels of fluoride (1.5–4.0 ppm) in drinking waters, about 55 years ago. The origin of fluoride was attributed to the contents of minerals in volcanic rocks, consisting of pyroxene, hornblende, biotite, fluorapatite and glassy groundmass minerals. It was also reported about 35 years ago that severe dental and skeletal fluorosis has been observed in human beings and livestock in Dogubeyazıt and Caldiran areas, located around Tendurek Volcano in eastern Turkey, where natural waters contained fluoride levels between 2.5 and 12.5 ppm….
Fluoride from drinking water (and “fortified formula water”) combines with aluminum. The fluoroaluminum complex is transported into the brain:
