This film lacks a scientific perspective and focuses on appeals to emotion and not data. I doubt the children reading statements reflecting the teaching of their parents would be considered neither convincing to scientific peers nor perhaps ethical as an appeal – after all, you should then interview some of the hundreds of millions of Americans with tooth decay along with the scientists would would defend the beneficial effects of fluoride in order to produce a more accurate portrait of the current science.
Perhaps you should watch the film again. It was not about how many people “believe” in this intervention but about successful whistle blower lawsuits over fluoride and cancer and how deplorably the justice department acted obstructing justice, shredding documents and witness tampering.
The children as a school project for their science class reviewed both sides of the available evidence and arrived at the reasonable conclusion that ingesting hydrofluosilicic acid is unwise. You should review the documents on our Proof Page at http://www.fluoridegate.org and see the abundant evidence or disproportionate harm.
This film is not about tooth decay. It is about 18,000 American babies who die needlessly every year due to flawed public health policies.
Hello Dr. Kennedy,
Thanks for your excellent film!
Though I am ardently opposed to mandatory water fluoridation, and have been supporting CleanWaterPortland’s campaign to prevent Portland from fluoridating our pristine water supply, isn’t it true (because of diffusion) that we don’t actually ingest hydrofluosilicic acid at the tap, even if that’s added at the fluoridation plant?
A pro-fluoridation commenter (one of many I’ve been arguing with online in the comments threads of our local weekly http://www.wweek.com/portland/article-20611-you_can't_handle_the_tooth.html ) replied to my concern about consuming fluorosilic acid:
“When added to water, hexafluorosilicic acid rapidly hydrolyses to produce hydrofluoric acid and various forms of amorphous and hydrated silica.
H2SIF6 + 4 H2O = 6 HF + Si(OH)4
Hydrofluoric acid readily dissociates in dilute aqueous
solution to hydrogen ions and fluoride ions:
6 HF = 6 H+ + 6 F-
At the pH of drinking water (between 6.5 and 8.5),
dissociation of hydrofluoric acid is greater than 99.9%
The combination of reactions above gives the overall
reaction for the hydrolysis of hexafluorosilicic acid:
H2SiF6 + 4 H2O = 6 H+ + 6 F- + Si(OH)4
Urbanski and Schock 2000″
Doesn’t this mean that, aside from the trace contaminants such as arsenic & lead, it’s mainly just the fluoride ion which makes it to the tap, rather than the original industrial waste product?
I am surprised that you actually believed what the advocates for fluoridation claim without one shred of evidence to back their claim. In terms only a high school chemist would understand they claim almost 100% dissociation under water treatment plant conditions. No scientist who has ever measured silicofluoride has found anywhere near this level under water treatment conditions. Even the 99.9% claim would leave substantial amounts (PPB) of undissociated silicofluoride. However Westendorf measured in the 70′s and that was Dr. Master’s point. In two huge studies (over 450,000 children) he found that Silicofluoride treated water increased blood lead levels in children and presumably lowered IQ while normal untreated water did not. There is a vast difference in fluoridated water’s effects on our society and he attributed this to the MEASURED increase in blood levels of recipients.
Westendorf, J. The Kinetics of Acetylcholinesterase Inhibition and the Influence of Fluoride and Fluoride Complexes on the Permeability of Erythrocyte Membranes. Doctoral Dissertation, University of Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany, 1975.
For further information read Finney et al., Environ. Sci. Technol. 2006, 40, 2572-2577 Reexamination of Hexafluorosilicate Hydrolysis by 19F NMR and pH Measurement.
Better yet just say NO to the addition of arsenic contaminated hazardous waste to the public water supplies without scientific evidence, without any drug approval, without informed consent and without a valid purpose.
What you say about “not actually ingesting silicofluoride at the tap” is a direct quote from Urbanski who did NO studies, Published NO papers, is an advocate for fluoridation and simply wrote a letter. So if you believe every thing you read I’ll write you this letter.
What Dr. Masters did was take enormous volumes of data and separated the blood lead levels for children who lived where the water has silicofluoride added and blood lead levels where they do not add silicofluoride and demonstrated that blood lead levels soared with silicofluoride addition especially in minority children.
NO research has ever found 100% dissociation of silicofluoride ever. Even McClure who heated the sample and stirred it for 24 hours didn’t so what Urbanski claimed is demonstrably false. That is why the advocates for fluoridation steadfastly for more than 60 years have refused to debate.
Lastly you’ve characterized the contaminants of arsenic as a trace amount. Here again you’ve chosen to quote the advocates for adding contamination to the public water supplies. The question you should as is: Does the amount of Arsenic added contribute to increased cancer rates in silicofluoride treated areas.
Answer: is a resounding YES!!!
Dr. Hirzy whom you met in Fluoridegate film recently published a new study calculating the dramatic increase in cost to society from the increased cancers of bladder and lung from your so called “trace” amounts of arsenic. The cost to society utterly dwarfs the alleged benefit.

David Kennedy Director
Ken, What you say is simply not true. It may be your perception but didn’t you actually watch the documentary? Do you recall the extensive discussion of the National Academy of Sciences unanimous rejection of the fraudulent MCLG? Don’t you recall Dr. Masters explaining that silicofluoride caused a disproportionate harm to minority children. I understand that you might find that information upsetting but considering that there are over 450,000 children in Dr. Masters two huge studies of the impact of silicofluoride on blood lead levels I thing you SHOULD be upset.
But seriously the only people who are not upset to find their program is damaging the nation are those promoting it.
The kids “get it”. Even if you don’t.
Watch it again and then try to explain to me why this nation The United States of America should choose to add ethyl mercury to vaccines given both to pregnant women and babies and 500,000 TONS of silicofluoride annually to the public water supply.
When you reply please share with the readers what your “Scientific Perspective” is and how you would address the enormous infant mortality rate that our current unscientific public health policy has created.

Let’s say for the sake of argument that fluoride does prevent tooth decay. Does that mean it should be used regardless of any other negative health effects? Pro-fluoride groups (most notably the ADA) seem to be very adept at never talking about the negatives, only the (potential) positive of tooth decay prevention. What kind of science is that?? That’s like promoting setting your hair on fire to rid yourself of lice.
Yes a good way to get rid of lice too. Egyptians shaved their heads and wore wigs as lice won’t stay in dead hair.
But both the ADA and the CDC have changed their long repeated claims about how fluoride might just possible someday reduce tooth decay saying the effects are topical and at much higher amounts than water fluoridation too. The US FDA has never approve any toothpaste below 1,000 parts per million or 1428 TIMES more than the new improved lower recommended optimum level of 0.7 ppm. So even if fluoride does reduce tooth decay it certainly will not do so at 0.7 PPM which makes water fluoridation a scam.
“[F]luoride’s predominant effect is posteruptive and topical.” – Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (2001). Recommendations for Using Fluoride to Prevent and Control Dental Caries in the United States. Mortality and Morbidity Weekly Review. August 17, 50(RR14):1-42.
“[E]vidence has continued to accumulate to support the hypothesis that the anti-caries mechanism of fluoride is mainly a topical one.” – J Carlos, JP. (1983) Comments on Fluoride. The Journal of Pedodontics. Winter. 135-136.
“Fluoride…works via topical mechanisms.” “Fluoride incorporated during tooth development is insufficient to play a significant role in caries protection.” – Featherstone, JDB. (2000). The Science and Practice of Caries Prevention. Journal of the American Dental Association. 131: 887-899.
A scam that does cause disproportionate harm to minorities but actually to everyone all the time. Fluoride is a cumulative poison that should be avoided not shipped in from China, Mexico, Japan and Fluorida. I thought Dr. Marcus’ May Day Memo did a good job of exposing the fact that Fluoride cause cancer. Dr. Hirzy’s latest peer reviewed article calculated the cost of arsenic ( a well recognized contaminant in water fluoridation chemicals) induced cancers and they dwarf even the “estimated” benefit of fluoridation. BTW there is no benefit to anyone from fluoridation except those who have it for sale.

Thanks David, and most importantly, thanks for the citations in your response. As someone with a science/healthcare background, I wish I’d see more of that in the different blogs.
I plan on going through your site and the film in detail and getting fluoride out of my local water supply. My small community states that it “injects fluoride into the water for dental benefits. Fluoride is injected at the wellheads at a rate of 0.8 – 1.3 mg/l with a goal of 1.0 mg/l.”
I am sure the main objection I will get (especially from the dental community) is that fluoride has been proven without a doubt to prevent tooth decay.
From the ADA web site:
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has proclaimed community water fluoridation as one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century.”
“The ADA’s policies regarding community water fluoridation are based on the overwhelming weight of peer-reviewed, credible scientific evidence. ”
They sure make it sound as though the jury is in so I have some homework to do. I may be in touch for some additional pointers.
As someone who purportedly has a science/healthcare background I am surprised that you would choose to cite a “proclamation” as though it were of any validity in discussing the efficacy of drinking water fluoridation. These same two organizations claimed up until 1999 that you had to swallow fluoride to achieve any benefit. They never had any evidence of a systemic benefit but chose to make up their facts to support a policy.
Although on the other hand you might want to review the evidence yourself that water fluoridation is valid. For example you may wish to compare the World Health Organization data for countries that do practice this intervention and those that do not. What you will find is that the majority of countries around the world do not allow fluoride to be added to the public water supply and that most have improved the oral health of children and adults more than in the US. Nice collection can be found here: http://www.fluoridealert.org
Or for example look please explain why tooth decay declined in East German communities that ceased fluoridation. In California we took welfare dental care data from the entire state and showed there is no significant difference in dental care costs regardless of whether or not 10% of the community had fluoride or 90%.
Since you are a science person my challenge is for you to find a single solitary broad based blinded study of humans valid by today’s standards that has ever found a significant decline in tooth decay from the addition of 1 ppm F to the public drinking water.
FYI all such studies to-date found no significant difference.
After you’ve satisfied yourself that the above is correct my next question to you is why do the ADA & CDC continue to make obviously false proclamations?
Agreed. I was simply stating what you probably already knew but what still continues to amaze me. The assertions made on the ADA website were certainly not intended to be my endorsements or blind acceptance thereof, but rather were to point out that this is the prevailing thought in both the current “scientific” community and general population. It’s what we have to overcome as the powers that be continue to parrot back what they have been told to believe over the last six decades.
I am still amazed at how many of the gospel/time-tested/irrefutable factoids which I was taught (in school) were debunked years later. What I began to realize is how common it is for the scientific community to cite the same sources/studies over and over without scrutiny, validation, or questioning the motivation behind those studies. ‘Reviews of the literature’ simply serve to reinforce baseless notions by again using circular logic of repeatedly citing the same bad science.
I look forward to delving into the site in more detail and looking at the research.
Yeah, uhh, getting enough vitamin D also prevents tooth decay. Maybe the poor sufferers of tooth decay should try getting sunlight between the hours of 10 and 12. I feel people should stop expecting their government and corporations to take of their minor, petty problems for them. We shouldn’t just settle for an easy out with a list of known side effects which are far worse the problem being prevented when there are plenty of other options.
What you say is correct only the silicofluoride thing is a totally fake program that never was truly intended to improve oral health. That much is clear. The fact that it damages human health was more difficult to prove but we now have unequivocal proof of harm.
the problem is when any new drug is proposed the regulatory bodies bend over backwards making manufacturers prove both safety and effectiveness. Fluoride systemically is neither so the fundamental problem is much deeper than a mere intrusion into our rights to choose. It speaks to the difficulties of the public receiving due consideration in a representative democracy awash with private interest money.
We need to rethink how we govern because a detailed look at what we have at the moment shows a severe disconnect between the regulatory bodies assigned tasks and their accomplishments.
Hi my name is ross and i have started a local group here in mississippi to educate the population on the dangers of flouride and expose the truth behind it. I was wondering is there anywhere i can download this doc for free in an avi format so i can burn it to dvd and pass it out in our door knocking campaign
Ross, what part of Mississippi are you from? We have begun The Mid South Fluoride Free Coalition here in the Memphis Area. Please contact us at email@example.com
Ross I have priced the bulk purchase of DVDs at just $5 each if you buy 10 or more. You can order them from the website at fluoridegate.org
For your door knocking campaign I put the entire video online. You should put the http://www.Fluoridegate.org on a card and hand that to the person at the door as the best possible resource if they want more information.
Our website has the film, documentation, blog and I can answer everyones question. This is the advantage of the film online. You can’t afford to spend the time or money just to make up bandit DVDs as that will keep you from knocking on a whole lot of doors.
Keep on knocking.
Thank you for this brilliant and courageous documentary! Now I can better protect my children, my friends and family and hopefully my community as a whole by sharing your film. Awareness is the first step towards a healthier way of life for generations to come. Dr. Kennedy, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for telling the TRUTH.
You are welcome. It is my duty to tell the truth.
Thank you most sincerely from all the people trying to stop this chronic poisoning of our population, pets and our environment – Australia now has the disgraceful dishonour of being the most heavily fluoride-polluted country in the world – every State heavily polluted with this Fluoridation Fraud. Please spread the word and help put the pressure on Australian Governments to end this Fluoridation Dictatorship of Australia.
An Australian Example of Fluoridation Dictatorship

My kindest regards to all and may we the people be successful in ending water fluoridation/pollution very soon.
Thank you, Diane
Thank you Diane for all you do. I’ve watched your efforts for a long time. Help me spread this film around the world to assist others in changing these awful policies that are costing so many lives

Take your iPad with you and show your friends and family. It plays well from our website on almost all devices.
One of the troubles is that we don’t even know how numerous we are. We need to start a national registry of our own. For all these years the authoritarian Oral Health Division of the CDC has had sole powers to deny that fluoride overdose is overdose, that suffering is suffering, that toxicity is toxicity and that harm is harm. They have had sole powers to determine that destroying our teeth, bones, thyroids – our lives and our abilities to earn a living and engage in the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness ” is allowable and tolerable and a suitable trade-off.
The CDC will never count us willingly. We must stand up and count ourselves. We have to find a way to access social media or Avaaz or other modern info-tech applications and count ourselves. If 40% of young adults born since 1985 and raised in the US now have visible dental fluorosis, there has GOT to be more than 5% with chronic fluoride toxicity syndrome.
Great comment Ron
Personally due to their deplorable behavior I favor removal of all CDC employees and a complete restructuring of the consumer protections we have enacted. These protections are non existent due to corporate influence. Any successful system would must and absolutely has to have firewalls against exactly what we have now: regulation for the profits of industry, by industry without regard for any public consequences like for example neurological impairment If you haven’t taken the time to read what horribly unethical behavior te CDC thinks is normal I recommend you read the transcript from the vaccine committee at Simpsonwood 2001. It was clear that ethylmercury called thimerosal was causal for autism. The committee took steps to protect their program and not our children. That is unethical, a violation of both their Hippocratic oath and sworn oath to uphold the laws of this nation.
We need to rethink how we regulate so regulations protect people and not revenue streams to giant corporations.
We are a bunch of volunteers and starting a brand new scheme in our community. Your site offered us with valuable information to work on. You’ve done a formidable process and our entire community will probably be thankful to you.
Dr. Kennedy has once again performed a true service to humanity. It is extraordinary that this practice just continues. I am an accredited member of the IAOMT and Dave Kennedy is a big part of why I support this organization so strongly. Thank you.
i would like to congratulate you on such a wonderful explanation of the issue. i hope people support you in huge numbers and that justice is served to these criminal agencies and companies who knowingly poison everybody, and are bribed to do so. i think with films like yours people will take action.
thanks so much,
I can get this out to a local audience on local community TV contact me, just need the OK and a copy. Can overlay contact info with a CG graphic while it plays. It is too hard to get the crap out of the water once it is put in. Same thing with mercury fillings.
Yes please do put this on public access. I have 22 public access TV programs and will even help you format them for your stations. I have forwarded your request to Monica Esteban the producer.
Thank you, David, for publishing this film which is a valuable educational tool and which is now part of our arsenal for use against the outrageous policy of water fluoridation.
Coordinator, West Midlands Against Fluoridation (UK)
Amazing film. Thank you SO much for your research and for your time and energy. I appreciate you. I’m spreading the word as much as I can. The great city of Portland has had some of the cleanest water in the country and yep, they have voted to put Flouride in the water now. It’s poison and it has no benefits. I know it was never mentioned in the video, but at some point, the only conclusion that a sane person can come to, as insane as it sounds, is that our government WANTS us to die. It’s a human Geography reduction of the population on purpose. There seems to be no other conclusion I can reach. It’s hurtful; it’s Draconian, and it’s simply true.
But thank you for the insight and the incredible courage of those doctors and scientists and those amazing kids. That girl sure is great! If you ever need any music or backing tracks, I have 150 songs in my catalogue I’d let you use free.
I may take you up on the free music offer for some of my next documentaries. Since I always post what I do for free on my YouTube channel DAVIDKENNEDYDDS and they are very suspect of any commercial copyright violations I have of late been recording my own tracts but since I know nothing your music would undoubtedly be better;-)
Awesome Documentary, but how do we make community water fluoridation stop?
The problem is coming from Washington DC so we need to put a stake through that Medusa’s evil heart and we can do that by showing this film to everyone you know and everyone they know.
Portland Oregon’s Safe Water Advocates recently showed that citizens can for the moment stop fluoridation but I guarantee that the F advocates will return and return, and return because they are being paid to. That is their job. Their salary comes from you and the United States Government and is called the Center for Disease Control Dental Division and the United States Public health Service.
You hear every day how the fiscally responsible fools in congress are trying to balance the budget but never seem to do so. Well that is because they continue idiotic programs like the 35 people at the CDC who do nothing but advocate for more fluoride and the hundreds of dentist and hygienists at the USPHS both national and state who do the same.
I say fire the whole bunch. Make them stop lying to the citizens and go hang out their shingle and fix some teeth. That will go a long way to not only protecting the water but balancing the budget too. Sadly it won’t do much to improve oral health because fixing teeth does not stop bad diet and bad hygiene but then neither does swallowing silicofluoride. In fact fluoride only makes it worse.
A very informative video!!! Go to 56:00 on this video and review what is said about the synergistic effect of fluoride on lead. Then look up the recent City of Portland, Or water report and note the large percentage of homes (residential water section test results) that exceed the allowable lead standard.
Ergo, fluoridation of Portland’s water supply will undoubtedly exacerbate the negative health consequences of lead exposure especially in the older sections of Portland where lead plumbing components are frequently found.
Thank you Dr. Koroloff for watching this film and your courageous stand against public drinking water contamination with silicofluoride. it is refreshing to see other doctors join me is calling for an immediate halt to this program.
What remains to be done is for the fools in Washington DC to cease funding an army of liars fanned out across this nation to deceive the people about the safety of adding arsenic contaminated silicofluoride to our public drinking water.
Portland showed the nation what well informed and determined advocates for safe water can do even when out spent many fold.
It’s hard to believe that an atrocity like “artificial water fluoridation” has gone on as long as it has. There is no arguing the facts, there is no arguing the science bases evidence, therefore there should be no arguing the need for it to end immediately! Excellent presentation, a must see for every politician, every parent, every scientist, and every person who drinks water!
we are being poisoned!
Correct. Now what are you going to do about that?
Is there a transcript available?
Yes. We’ve recently had a transcript made of the film. Would you like a copy?
I would love to have a transcript of this film!!!
(Fluoridegate: An American Tragedy)
Can you email me a copy?
Sure, i’ll send the transcript right away. If you haven’t already I’d also recommend you examine the documents under PROOF tab on the home page. Dr. Marcus’ May Day Memo is there and I find it very compelling as did the court.
Thank you so much!
Yes there is now.
oregonlive is doing a pretty good job of blocking my posts about fluoridegate but I get one in here and there
it is time to saturate all the media with this film, someone in Portland needs to take this directly to the media and do a story on it
One thing that folks can do to protect themselves from fluoridation is supplementation with iodine, specifically Lugols iodine. Iodine is high amounts will displace fluoride, bromine, and chlorine and other cancer-causing substances such as heavy metals from the body.
We have been a variety of volunteers and also establishing a whole new system in our local community. Your web site provided us with helpful tips to figure with. You must have done an impressive process and also the entire neighborhood shall be happy to you.
This was an excellent video! I found it very informative and had a lot of my questions answered about Fluoridation. You are giving the communities across the United States a very informative tool to help spread the word and promote the health of our people. Keep fighting the good fight and thank you for this resource.
Thanks so much for your diligent research and efforts. It’s a pleasure and honor to know you.
Flouride is poison. Very simple. Drink distilled water (claims that it is bad are wrong – ask my dad who drank i after 3 weeks and his arthritis pain dropped 80% after 15 years and now is in recession, and dropped his med 50%) and brush with flouride free toothpaste. Whoever doesn’t want to know the truth is welcome to stay in ignorance land. It’s your body not mine.
I totally agree. Myriads of joint and muscle diseases caused by fluoride are routinely misdiagnosed by physicians as arthritis. The best way to tell is to avoid all fluoride exposure (food, water and bathing) and take the nutrient antidotes for fluoride poisoning: iodine, calcium, magnesium, selenium, vitamin C.
If your pain gets better then you were poisoned by fluoride.
I’ve experienced the same thing myself and strongly recommend pure water which is exactly what distilled water is. Or if you lived on a pristine planet you could collect rainwater but since we do not live in a pristine environment making your own water as pure as possible is the next best thing.
Greetings Dr. Kennedy!
Thank you for your service! I recently saw your film. I am 26 years old and have ankylosing spondolitis in which I attribute fluoride in the drinking water to have caused it. http://www.fluoridealert.org/studies/skeletal_fluorosis10/
I saw studies that showed people with fluoridosis that had identical symptoms as people with “arthritis”. I think arthritis is fluoridosis!!! I also want to ask you if you endorse any particular water filtration system for home use and if so, which one. Do you know of this company http://www.perfectwaterinc.com ? Thank you!!!
There are several ways to get good drinking water but very few to remove it from your bath water and none to have the restaurant foods free from fluoride. You should drink pure water and the purest water is distilled. You can make your won distilled at home and it is much cheaper and you don’t have to drink out of those plastic bottles.
We’ve tested many bottled waters and like I pointed out in the film you simply don’t know what level of fluoride is in that bottle because they don’t want you to know. Here is one Water Wise that has a stainless steel boiler and glass container: http://www.everythingkitchens.com/waterwise-4000-water-distillers.html?gclid=CPStm52Nq7gCFS3hQgod7FQAHw
I personally have a Pure Water Mega Classic in my garage with a demand pump sending good water to my kitchen sink and the bath area. Pure water also make counter top distillers.
You can research and find good water companies in your area that either use snow melt or deep wells also and deliver. Here in San Diego we can order in bulk stainless steel tank from Palomar Spring Water and it tests out very well as well.
Greetings Dr. Kennedy!
Do you recommend any particular water filtration for home. I can’t afford a whole home system, but maybe you know of a countertop distiller or purifier. Your input would be greatly appreciated.
Good that you can’t afford such a system because right now you likely would be wasting your money. I have been testing a home filtration system for the last year and it began to fail after just 15,000 gallons. The system normally costs $10,000 so sadly at this writing the short answer is no. But I am working with the company to improve their system. They recharged it with more of the bone char and no activated alumina. I’ll let you knowhow it turns out and no I don’t get paid for my efforts but hopefully there may someday be products on the market that do what we want.
I have a good friend who lives in highly fluoridated Kentucky who wants fluoride free water. We talked about it and found out he has a wonderful natural spring on his property that they had simply ignored for years. He is in the process of testing the water and will set up a cistern delivery system like they used years ago. If that doesn’t work out then drilling a new well is always an option in his area.
BTW if any whole house filter company wants me to test their product I just need a 2 ounce sample and tell me how many gallons of water have gone through the system so far. The reason I ask for gallons-used si because the life of the filter is dependent on gallons and not time.
Have you heard of air to water systems. They take the humidity from the air and create water.
Way cool! Some extremely valid points!
Does your site have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’dlike to send you an email. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.| Hi! I’ve been reading your website for a long time now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Austin Texas! Just wanted to tell you keep up the great job!
You can send a private message via my YouTube channel but if the question may be of interest to others just use Fluoridegate Comments as i check it often and we do want to generate buzz so we move to the top of the search engines.
Send the link to your family and friends. I think this film may be the easiest tool to turn around weak thinkers. A recent poll by a dental magazine The Wealthy Dentist found that 70% of the respondents are against public water fluoridation and even 56% of the dentists did not approve of this practice.
So why does the ADA continue to promote it? Perhaps $$$$
This is a topic that is near to my heart… Thank you! Exactly where are your contact details though?| It’s very easy to find out any matter on net as compared to books, as I found this post at this web page.
Dear Jeanene, The easiest way to contact me to by commenting on Fluoridegate or a private message through my YouTube channel which is davidkennedydds.
If your question is a topic or subject that others might be interested in use Fluoridegate so others can read my reply. There are no bad questions. But there are some very bad people. They work daily to maintain bad policies that kill small children and others.
After I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new

Howdy! This article could not be written much better! Reading through this article reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept talking about this. I’ll forward this information to him. Pretty sure he’ll have a very good read. Thanks for sharing!
In early August, the Environmental Protection Agency is set to decide on a petition to change the source of fluoride in U.S. drinking water.
Currently, the source of fluoride in most public water supplies is fluorosilicic acid, according to government records. The petition calls for the EPA to instead require the use of pharmaceutical-grade sodium fluoride in water fluoridation, which is the addition of fluoride to drinking water for the purpose of preventing cavities.
Fluorosilicic acid is often contaminated with arsenic, and recent research has linked the arsenic from fluorosilicic acid in drinking water to as many as 1,800 extra cases of cancer yearly in the United States, said William Hirzy, a chemistry researcher American University in Washington, D.C. Hirzy, who worked at the EPA for 27 years, submitted the petition.
The study and petition grew out of what researchers believe is a lack of regulation and understanding of chemicals used in fluoridation, Hirzy said. Fluorosilicic acid has been shown to contain the carcinogens arsenic and lead, and to leach lead from water pipes, he said.
Billions in cancer costs.
In the study, published in February in the journal Environmental Science and Policy, Hirzy and co-authors estimated that putting pharmaceutical-grade sodium fluoride into the water supply would reduce the amount of arsenic in drinking water by 99 percent. The arsenic at issue is the inorganic variety, a known human carcinogen, meaning it causes cancer. [Why Is Arsenic Bad for You?]
The switch would cost $100 million, but would save billions in reduced cancer costs, Hirzy said.
“We found that the United States as a society is spending, conservatively speaking, $1 billion to $6 billion treating the excess bladder and lung cancers caused by arsenic in the most commonly used fluoridation chemical, fluorosilicic acid,” Hirzy said.
The EPA limits levels of arsenic in drinking water to 10 parts per billion. Hirzy said that the researchers, in calculating the number of U.S. cancer cases yearly linked with arsenic in fluorosilicic acid, used the EPA’s own risk assessment data.
Experts not involved with Hirzy’s study agreed with its findings.
“I think this is a reasonable study, and that they haven’t inflated anything,” said Kathleen Thiessen, a senior scientist at SENES Oak Ridge Inc., a health and environmental risk assessment company.
An EPA scientist, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak to the press, said the study is the first to perform a risk assessment on this arsenic source, which “should have been done” already. He said he “didn’t dispute anything” in the paper, and said the cost estimates were reasonable.
While the EPA performs risk assessments for most contaminants in public water supplies, it doesn’t oversee the addition of chemicals used in fluoridation, according to the agency — a policy that Hirzy said doesn’t make sense. Under the Toxic Substances Control Act, the EPA has the authority to regulate or ban almost any substance — including fluorosilicic acid — that poses an “unreasonable risk” to public health, he said.
During the production of phosphate fertilizer, phosphate ore is reacted with sulfuric acid to produce toxic gases. These are taken out of the air after being sprayed with water, which produces fluorosilicic acid, said Michael Miller, a minerals commodity specialist for the U.S. Geological Survey.
The solution is sold to water systems nation-wide, where it is diluted and put into drinking water, Miller said. Occasionally, it is treated to create sodium fluorosilicate. Together, these compounds (called silicofluorides) provide fluoride to 90 percent of U.S. drinking water systems that are fluoridated, serving about 150 million people, Miller said.
Fluoridation was introduced in 1945, and the early tests of its effects were done with sodium fluoride, largely derived from the aluminum smelting industry, Hirzy said. Fluorosilicic acid wasn’t used to fluoridate water supplies until after 1951, when water fluoridation became a goal of the U.S. Public Health Service. The health effects of fluorosilicicacid haven’t been widely tested, according to a 2006 report on fluoride by the National Research Council. Mosaic, one of the companies that sells fluorosilicic acid to water utilities around the country, Miller said, lists the substance as hightly corrosive. The undiluted acid can eat through glass.
Any increase in exposure to arsenic leads to an increase in the risk and incidence of cancers, Hirzy said. On average, diluted fluorosilic acid adds about 0.08 ppb to drinking water.
The purity of fluoridation chemicals is regulated by NSF International, and the American National Standards Institute, according to the study. Under a regulation called the NSF/ANSI Standard 60, fluoridation chemicals are not permitted to create arsenic levels above 1 ppb in drinking water, the study noted.
However, there’s reason to believe this standard isn’t being enforced, Hirzy said. For example, arsenic levels in Wellington, Fla., recently exceeded this limit, and nothing was done in response to the violation, according to the study.
“Nobody is watching the store,” Hirzy said.
The EPA has decided that we should continue to drink hydrofluosilicic acid.
EPA supports continued use of hydrofluosilicic acid fluoridation chemical
August 8, 2013
The US Environmental Protection Agency has denied a petition to prohibit the use of hydrofluorosilicic acid (HFSA) as a water fluoridation agent.
The petiiton was brought under the Toxic Substances Control Act by a chemist who claimed the agent posed health risks. EPA concluded that “the evidence presented by the petitioners does not adequately support a conclusion that HFSA, when used as a fluoridation agent, presents or will present an unreasonable risk to health or the environment.”

Thank you for your endless and tireless expose and educational efforts worldwide against the damage that fluoride has caused our water supplies, our citizens, our crops and our health. As a former patient of yours, as well as a volunteer in the ever-growing efforts to keep fluoride out of our precious water supplies and allow people to make their own decisions as to whether or not they want to ingest fluoride,
it is obvious that the promoters of fluoride have done a whitewash on people and government agencies, convincing them that fluoride is the magic panacea for cavities and oral health. There are no substitutes for proper dental hygiene, and shame on anyone who tries to convince the population otherwise. There is fluoride added to most toothpastes so anyone who wishes to use it can easily do so, but we do not need to bathe our entire bodies inside with this or any other chemical. We need to keep our water supplies as clean and pure as possible. I don’t want vitamins added to my water either, even though I take vitamins–how much and which ones should be my own choice, not the government’s. Keep up the good work in your extraordinary efforts and enlightenment of municipalities as well as individuals. Working with you was a real education and eye opener for me, and I loved every minute of my volunteer work. You are an extraordinary teacher and pioneer, and my hat is off to you. With great respect and gratitude, Dale Phillip
Watch | Fluoridegate The Film and video overlay may be related stuff!
Does your website have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’dlike to send you an email. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.| Hey there! I’ve been reading your site for a while now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Lubbock Texas! Just wanted to tell you keep up the excellent job!
Yes Marshall and you just sent me an email??? Look on the top on the right a small white word contact. Click on that and send me an email. But if you have a question I’d like you to comment under Watch (the movie) as others may be interested in the same question.
bookmarked!!, I really like your site!
It’s actually a great and useful piece of info. I am glad that you
simply shared this helpful information with us. Please keep us informed like this.
Thanks for sharing.
This documentary is truly a pivotal moment in human health vs. corporate greed. Thanks for watching.
I urge all viewers to go read Dr. Thomas Marx’s entire well referenced letter to the F&DA. He was very clear in his letter that:
“In 2008 I attended theCongress of the American Society of Anesthesiologists in Orlando, Florida, where I became aware of some alarming study results:
1. The one-year-mortality in adults correlates in a linear way to the depth of anesthesia, even if sophisticated statistic calculations attempt to eliminate that factor as an artifact (1).
2. US American studies revealed that children in the USA even 10 years after anesthesia havelower IQs than comparable children not having undergone anesthesia. That effect presentlyis investigated by the FDA in the so called SAFEKIDS Project (2).With a former co worker who is now Professor of Anesthesia in the Dalhousie University inHalifax, Canada (Michael Schmidt) , I discussed old experimental by-chance findings from ourtime in Germany during which we found in anesthetized animals exposed to the anestheticvapor Halothane brain damage parameters
which’s concentrations measured by intra cerebralmicro dialysis were correlating in a linear way with the depth of anesthesia adjusted by”
Please go read and download the entire letter so you know what your risks and choices are.
I think everything posted was very logical. But, what about this?
what if you added a little content? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added something to maybe get folk’s attention?
I mean Watch | Fluoridegate The Film is kinda plain. You might glance at Yahoo’s
front page and see how they create news titles to get
viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to
get people interested about what you’ve got to say.
Just my opinion, it could bring your website a little bit more interesting.
Dear My Injury Lawyer
Glad you liked the video. There are three “Promo” short videos on the landing page and numerous shorter clips under Proof by each of the speakers. I will forward your suggestion to Monica the wonderful videographer who shot and helped edit the video and then build this website.
