Fluoride in Rat Poison: Since the 1800s, fluoride has been a key component in ratpoison and insecticides but they couldn’t sell enough of it to use all the industrial waste (fluoride) they were creating.
Yes, fluoride is a poison as shown by Its first use as rat poison. As a poison, Fluoride is industrial waste, a by-product of the aluminum industry and the phosphate fertilizer industry. The problem of how to legally dispose of this industrial waste was solved in the 1930's when a study (funded by one of the country's largest aluminum companies) concluded that fluoride prevented tooth decay.
Even if the benefits outweigh the risks of using fluoride in toothpaste at least we spit it out. But what sense does it make to add it to the water we drink? It not only affects out teeth but is absorbed throughout our bodies!
Fluoride could be causing depression and weight gain and councils should stop adding it to drinking water to prevent tooth decay, scientists have warned.
A study of 98 per cent of GP practices in England found that high rates of underactive thyroid were 30 per cent more likely in areas of the greatest fluoridation.
It could mean that up to 15,000 people are suffering needlessly from thyroid problems which can cause depression, weight gain, fatigue and aching muscles.
