Top Scientist: Fluoride Already Shown to Cause 10,000 Cancer Deaths

Mike Barrett – Natural Society –

Water fluoridation is a highly controversial topic, with many individuals  voicing massive concern over the practice. In contrast, some stick to the  concept that there isn’t any association between fluoride and any real  negative effects. Fluoride, however, is indeed a toxic substance, and has been  tied with numerous health complications in well-established research. Fluoride  can be found in many water supplies, toothpaste, and even  food at alarming levels. While it may sound shocking to many, some research  is even drawing a close connection between fluoride and an increased cancer  risk.

Top Scientist: Fluoride Already  Shown to Cause 10,000 Cancer Deaths

One paper entitled Fluoride – A Modern Toxic Waste says the following:

Yiamouyiannis documents research showing that fluoride increases the  tumor growth rate by 25% at only 1 ppm, produces melanotic tumors, transforms  normal cells into cancer cells and increases the carcinogenesis of  other chemicals.  For the original references to these studies, refer to  Yiamouyiannis’ pamphlet, Lifesavers Guide to Fluoridation.

In 1997, it was shown that fluoridation caused about 10,000 cancer  deaths in epidemiological studies by Dr. Dean Burk, former head of the  Cytochemistry Section at the National Cancer Institute and Yiamouyiannis.  Despite the findings occurring in 1997, they were not reluctantly released until  1989. After analyzing the study results in rats, it was found that animals who  drank fluoridated water:

  • Showed an increase in tumors and cancers in oral squamous  cells.
  • Developed a rare form of bone cancer called  osteosarcoma.
  • Showed an increased in thyroid follicular cell tumors.
  • Developed a rare form of liver cancer known as  hepatocholangiocarcinoma.

Other research resurfaced by Dr. Dean Burk, former chief of cytochemistry at  the National Cancer Institute for 30 years, also shows that fluoride increases the cancer death rate. Dr Burk refers to a study conducted  which compares the 10 largest U.S. cities with fluoridation and the 10 largest  without. What researchers found was that following fluoridation, deaths  from cancer went up immediately- in as little as a year.

To reduce fluoride levels to a the greatest degree, activists must demand  that the government stop fluoridating the water supplies. Water fluoridation has  not only been linked to an increased cancer risk, but a decreased IQ in  children. In fact, the findings forced the government  to call for lower fluoridation levels nationwide. Until water fluoridation  comes to a halt, the easiest way to reduce fluoride exposure is to invest in a  reverse osmosis water filtration system. Drinking  distilled water for 3-6 months may also reduce the soft tissue fluoride  levels, but not bone levels. Soft tissue fluoride levels cause the greatest  health problems.
