Fluoride is bad for you and causes cancer - DEBUNKED
Conspiracy theories involving fluoridation are common, they often include claims that: Fluoridation is part of a Communist, Fascist or Illuminati plot to take over the world and mankind. By the way this notion is mentioned with comical effect in Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, that’s where you kooks get your conspiracy ideas from then eh, lol.


Other crazy conspiracies about Water Fluoridation include classics such as, Water Fluoridation was designed by the military industrial complex to protect the atomic weapons program from litigation in the United States, or how about this one. Fluoridation was pioneered by a German chemical company to make people submissive to those in power. Enough of this nonsense, let’s get the fact’s:

The Great Water Fluoridation Conspiracy Theory: Debunked

When have you ever heard one of them crazy fluoride conspiracy creeps state the facts about the benefits of fluoridation, scientifically proven data such as:

Water fluoridation is effective at reducing cavities in children

Studies have shown that water fluoridation can lead to a reduction of upto 64% in childhood cavities. A 2000 systematic review found that water fluoridation was statistically associated with a decreased proportion of children with cavities, the median of mean decreases was 14.6%, the range −5 to 64%, and with a decrease in decayed, missing, and filled primary teeth, the median of mean decreases was 2.25 teeth, the range 0.5–4.4 teeth, this is roughly equivalent to preventing 40% of cavities.

Fluoride also prevents cavities in adults of all ages.

There are fewer studies in adults however, and the design of water fluoridation studies in adults is inferior to that of studies of self- or clinically applied fluoride. A 2007 meta-analysis found that water fluoridation prevented an estimated 27% of cavities in adults.

A 2002 systematic review found strong evidence that water fluoridation is effective at reducing overall tooth decay in schools and communities.

Fluoridation is required in the United States, because unlike most of Europe the U.S. doesn’t have school dental care, most children do not see a dentist regularly, many American diets are very high in fats and sugars, and for a high number of U.S. children water fluoridation is the prime source of exposure to fluoride, Water fluoridation in this instance is most recommended and can reduce cavities amongst the first four years of all of America’s school children by up-to 60 percent.

Important United States Fluoridation Data from between 1974–1992 indicate that when water fluoridation is introduced into a community, there are massive decreases in the number of employees per dental firm and the number of dental firms. The data suggest that some dentists respond to this loss of income by moving to non-fluoridated areas and by retraining as specialists.

Children in the United States born between 1957–1964 who grew up in fluoridated areas have earned significantly more as adults than children who didn’t, this effect is heavily concentrated among girls from poorer families, consistent with the hypothesis that the effect is due to consumer and employer discrimination in favor of women with prettier teeth. And these are just some of the many benefit’s of Water Fluoridation.

Ok why do they do this at great expense when they do fuck all else for the twats who can't or won't brush their teeth, how about making the kids of feckless cunts brush their teeth at school rather than putting poison in the water, or do you try to claim fluoride isn't a poison, check out the periodic table for a start.

 Quoting: master skeptic 3297010


One doesn't usually see small towns or rural areas fluoridated. These areas have much cheaper prices for everything and thus, cheaper labor costs.

A person making $30,000 a year living an area where houses are $80,000 has a better standard of living than a person making $100,000 a year in an area where houses are $500,000.

OP, you gave us a piece of pure propoganda. It's just a grouping of poorly done studies and hypothesis that don't match the data or basic logic.

"Recent studies suggest a strong correlation between childhood fluoride exposure and the development of osteosarcoma in young boys. The water supplement once considered beneficial now heralds evidence of bone cancer, osteosarcoma, and bone pain and swelling. The effects of fluoride have been recently highlighted through studies performed by the United States National Toxicology Program and Harvard University."

Wasting your time OP, believers gonna believe. They invent things like its used in Nazi camps (not a single reference anywhere except on anti-fluoride sites and blogs) and its a way to dispose of an industrial waste product (ignoring that sodium fluoride is used as a catalyst in Al production and isn't a by-product, they need it and reuse it).

Cue lots of links to self referenceing anti-fluoride blogs.

They ignore that its use is pretty arbitary, one water supplier or city uses it, another doesn't, and there little application in outside the US, and its very easy to evade, so hardly part of any master plan. The idea its used for mind control is comical as there's no mechanism for it to do this in its metabolism - yeah its poisionous in sufficient quantities, but you'd drown yourself before you got 1/100th requried for death.

Personally I think its a conspiracy by the water filter industry... Leave them to it if they want to belive.
