Fluoride is an enzyme poison. 1/10th of an ounce would be fatal to most people. In high concentrations it could be your standard rat and roach killer and a first rate pesticide.
Dr. Dean Burk said he estimates 40,000 cancer deaths a year in the United States are linked to fluoridated water. 40% of the American people are forced to drink this water, like it or not.
British Medical Research Council says mottling (or spots on the teeth) however mild, is the first symptom of chronic fluorine poisoning. Other countries report concentrations slightly higher than 1 PPM caused serious bone disease. Fluoride produces irreversible changes in chromosomes in animals leading to leukemia.
In Antigo, Wisconsin the town was fluoridated in 1949 and in 1951 heart deaths increased. In a twenty year period 1950 to 1970 national heart deaths rose 35.3% per 100,000 population. An increase of 744.8% above national average.
On May 24, 1974 a three-year-old boy was taken to Brownsville Dental Health Center in New York City, where a dose of fluoride in jelly form was smeared on his teeth to prevent tooth decay. Authorities said the dose was three times the amount necessary. The child became ill almost immediately, sweating and vomiting and went into a coma and later died. His parents sued for $1,000,000.00 - Doctors Negligence. New York City still uses 40,000 pounds of fluoride daily.
It would take a book to document all scientific evidence that shows fluoridation may cause cancer, heart disease, kidney damage, unexplained allergies, damage to genes, etc. Compulsory fluoridation makes as much sense as adding aspirin to the water to keep people from getting headaches.
From 1973 - 1980, 55,000 cases of illness relating to drinking water were reported in the United States. In 1982, the EPA declared 13,600 community water systems below par. A study conducted by the National Academy of Sciences found 22 cancer causing agents were identified in drinking water samples. Today there are 35,000 toxic chemicals in use. In 1982 the U.S. EPA estimated there were nearly 36,000 tons of toxic waste produced in one year in the U.S.
Where we are not being given the choice to ingest poison or not in our water, Nature's Spring is the answer.

Fluoridation Holds Great Danger
A New York State Supreme court Jury awarded $750,000.00 on January 29, 1979, to the parents of a three year old Brooklyn, New York boy who, on his first trip to the dentist in 1974, was given a lethal dose of fluoride at a New York City Dental Clinic and then ignored for nearly five hours in the waiting rooms of a pediatric clinic at Brookdale Hospital while his mother pleaded for help. In the mother's arms, the child lapsed into a coma and died.
The award - $600,000.00 for the wrongful death of the boy, William Kennerly, and $150,000.00 for the pain and suffering he endured - was by far the largest ever made in New York State for the death of a three year old. The parents, Clay Kennerly, age 48, an $8,000.00 a year city exterminator , and his wife Inez, 42, have eight other children.
William had suffered fluoride poisoning characterized by spasms of vomiting and nausea, headaches and dizziness, and had to be revived from coma by an injection of adrenalin into his heart several hours after his ordeal began. The little boy was then made to wait - in shock, another coma, and finally in a state of cardiac arrest while the doctors attempted to pump the fluoride poison from his stomach.
How could this happen? Dentists have maintained for nearly 40 years that up to 65% of tooth decay is preventable by a simple, inexpensive public health measure - the addition of small amounts of fluoride to the water supply. Grand Rapids, Michigan was the first American city to have it's water fluoridated 35 years ago.
Fluoride is not considered an essential nutrient. But it is supposed to protect the teeth by increasing the formation of crystals of the mineral mydroxyapatite in the tooth enamel. These crystals on the tooth surface resist the action of decay causing acids produced by bacteria that live on teeth.
Fluoride also inhibits the ability of these bacteria to become attached to teeth and to produce acid. The trace mineral is most effective for teeth if consumed from birth onward, allowing it to become part of the teeth enamel as they form. The only problem is that the substance has been shown to cause some deleterious effects in humans in any kind of concentration.
Fluoride is found naturally in varying minuscule amounts in water, air, plants, and animals. But numerous studies have shown that a level of about one part of fluoride per million parts of water, (the concentration added to the drinking water of 50% of all American cities) , causes a host of disorders, including birth defects, heart and kidney disease, allergies, and cancer. There is also harm to children by bring about deficiency in growth, hormones, secual development, blood, bones, skin, kidneys, and some other organ systems. Death can occur, as well.
The Kennerly boy died from fluoride poisoning when Roslyn Cohen, a dental hygienist, cleaned William's teeth and then, using a swab, spread a stannous fluoride gel over them.
Usually, after the solution is allowed to remain on the teeth briefly, the patient is given water and told to wash his mouth out and expectorate.
Miss Cohen was engrossed in conversation while working on the child and, after handing him a cup of water, failed to instruct him to wash his mouth out and spit out the solution. He drank the water, swallowing 45 cubic centimeters (cc) of 2 % stannous fluoride solution. Insufficient attention to his condition on the part of the personnel of the Brookdale Ambulatory Pediatric Care Unit contributed to his death.
In fact, 108 million Americans are presently being poisoned by drinking fluoridated water, About 10 million live in communities where the water is naturally fluoridated to a level of one part per million or more. For another 98 million, fluoride is added to the community water supply to approximately that level. Additionally, approximately 25% of the households in the United States use brands of fluoridated toothpaste, or take fluoride tablets or drops for infants or vitamin fluoride combinations available on prescription from a dentist or physicians.
These people are promoting fluorine toxicity in themselves. Fluorine toxicity affects the body in either of two ways: Acute, as in the case of William Kennerly, or chronic as is the circumstance with drinking fluoridated water in tiny doses gradually over a long time.
Fluorine in its natural state is usually found in hard water, which contains a great deal of calcium. Since calcium is the neutralizer for fluoride poisoning, natural fluorine brings along its own antidote, and the danger is greatly reduced. When fluorides are artificially added to soft water, however, the fluorine has not antidote. -Disease symptoms then develop.
Georgi L. Waldbott, M.D., an allergist in Saginaw, Michigan, who is a recognized authority on fluoride poisoning, has described some of the more common disease symptoms of fluorine toxicity. They are:
1. Gastric distress such as cramps and pain in the stomach, lack of appetite, nausea and vomiting.
2. Intestinal diarrhea or constipation.
3. Shortness of breath, palpitations, cough and expectoration.
4. Joint stiffness and indefinite or localized rheumatic pains and aches.
5. Tiredness, sleeplessness, indisposition, headache, and giddiness.
6. Rash, itching, and other skin symptoms.
One of Dr. Waldbott's patients suffering from fluorine toxicity had the following experience: "After three years of drinking artificially fluoridated water at one part per million, my patient developed the following manifestations" said the physician: "she had severe backache in the lower spine, severe abdominal pain, nausea and marked flatulence after drinking water, mouth ulcers, pain and numbness in arms and legs and partial palsy in arms, extreme exhaustion, mental deterioration, beginning changes in the retina, and hemorrhage from the bladder. Thorough laboratory and x-ray studies were entirely negative except that the blood-calcium level was slightly increased.
"Nine competent consultants agreed that the patient was seriously ill, ruled out other diseases, but could not diagnose her case. The diagnosis was suggested by the complete subsidence of symptoms following elimination of fluoridated water, and its recurrence upon its resumption," said Dr. Waldbott.
To check this clinical evaluation, the doctor carried out a number of laboratory and allergy tests on the woman. Without the patient's knowledge, had her drink 15 mg. Of sodium fluoride in 300 cc. Of water on an empty stomach. Dr. Waldbott said, "Within ten minutes her face became flushed and she developed a severe attack of typical sensation of flashing lights in both eyes, and pain in her arms and legs. This was followed shortly by diarrhea and cramp like pains in the lower abdomen."
A report, Effects of Chronic Exposure to Low-Level Pollutants in the Environments, has been prepared by the Library of Congress' Congressional Research Service for the U.S. House subcommittee on the environment and the atmosphere. The report lists fluorides along with chlorines, asbestos, nickel, and mercury, as dangerous pollutants which affect the central nervous system. They also increase the risk of getting cancer, heart disease, and genetic mutations, says this report.
Thinking people refuse to accept additional pollution and oppose fluoridation of their city water supplies for the following medical reasons:
1. Fluoridation causes detectable staining or mottling of teeth and too much fluoride makes the teeth brittle.
2. The artificial fluoridation program is based on the assumption that individuals drink four glasses of water daily. But many people drink much more. Some are more sensitive to chemicals than others or are so sickly that they would react to the pollutant sooner or more violently.
3. Fluoride is stored in the bones, and in older people it is associated with bone diseases and damage to the kidneys, nervous system, blood circulatory system and other organs and tissues, as well as skin diseases and other allergic problems.
4. Fluoride is colorless, odorless and tasteless, so that drinking an overabundance of it is quite likely. Boiling drives off the water and thus increases the concentration of fluoride.
5. It is not intended for purification but to medicate the drinker; thus fluoridation is compulsory mass medication for a noncontagious condition.
6. Altering your water supply in this way is an infringement of your constitutional rights and the rights of other people who are opposed for health, religious or other reasons to being fluoridated.
7. Almost 99.4% of the chemical goes down the drain with wash water, anyway and only 1/1500 of the water supply is used for drinking purposes - just 1/100 of 1% is consumed by children under age ten whom fluoridation's proponents claim might be benefitted by reduction of tooth decay.
Anyone who desires fluoride can readily obtain it in controlled dosage without an entire community being forced to drink the poison.
