The movement to remove industrial sodium fluoride from the world’s water supply has been growing in recent years, with evidence coming out against the additive from several sources.
Now, a report from the world’s oldest and most prestigious medical journal, The Lancet, has officially classified fluoride as a neurotoxin — in the same category as arsenic, lead and mercury.
The news was broken by author Stefan Smyle, who cited a report published in The Lancet Neurology, Volume 13, Issue 3, in the March 2014 edition, by authors Dr. Phillippe Grandjean and Philip J. Landrigan, MD. The report, which was officially released in 2014 and published in the journal, can be viewed by clicking here.

The Conscious Resistance
Oct 8, 2014
I attended City Council to speak as part of Fluoride Free Houston. There was a large amount of people in attendance today so all speakers were limited to 1 minute. The Mayor told council members she was not encouraging the usual dialogue because of the lack of time.
After a couple hours it was FFH’s time to speak. A couple speakers were upset by the lack of respect being displayed by council and the general apathy we witnessed. As one of the speakers stormed out of the back of the hall he said aloud something along the lines of “city council is bullshit!”. He walked out the door and a cop ran after him. I began filming and followed outside. I witnessed the cop grab and accost him without communication as to what was happening. I filmed the whole thing and attempted to defend him and chill the cop out.
I was unsuccessful. I went back to council.
Moments later two officers entered the hall and I felt they were there for me so I began filming. One officer repeatedly told me to get up and come out to the hall. He would not tell me why or answer any questions. He kept telling me to leave my stuff behind. He grabbed me by the arm and attempted to drag me to the hall. I walked out to the hall and stood against a wall. My camera was smacked several times. I was shoved around. All of this before I was finally told I was being accused of flicking someone off.
When the cop got more aggressive I sat down and stopped cooperating. They forced me down the hall. Eventually someone confirmed that it was not me and the cop let me go. I looked him in the face and said “You owe me a fucking apology.” He grabbed me again and handcuffed me and said I was under arrest. I was shoved into the elevator and taken downstairs to be harassed some more. Eventually they let me go and wrote me a ticket for “disorderly conduct, abusive language”.

BRAMPTON, ON, Sept. 25, 2014 /CNW/ – Mississauga resident, Liesa Cianchino, launched a lawsuit today against Peel Region and the Province of Ontario, challenging the lawfulness of adding fluoride to municipal drinking water.
Ms. Cianchino, who is the Chairperson of Concerned Residents of Peel to End Water Fluoridation, states that the risk of harm posed by water fluoridation greatly exceeds its speculative benefits, and that water fluoridation is both unconstitutional and a violation of the Ontario Safe Drinking Water Act.
Although fluoridated drinking water was once thought to be a key contributor in reducing tooth decay, modern science shows that fluoride works topically on the tooth and that nothing is gained by ingesting fluoride through drinking water. Moreover, ingestion of fluoride over time can lead to significant adverse health effects, including dental fluorosis, a heightened risk of bone fractures, and even bone cancer.
The Claim also alleges that the Region’s use of fluorosilicic acid to fluoridate drinking water is negligent because fluorosilicic acid often contains dangerous contaminants, including arsenic, a known carcinogen.

(NaturalNews) A woman who bought a bottle of Nestle’s Pure Life Water says she was threatened repeatedly by a company customer service representative who allegedly told her she would “slice her throat” and “watch the blood drain from you” after the woman called with questions about the product.
As a result of the alleged threats, Shimrit Ellis, the customer, filed suit against Pamela Vaughan, the customer service rep, and the company, Nestle USA, as well as Answernet Inc., in Philadelphia.
According to court documents, Ellis claims she bought the water on Aug. 5, 2012, then called Nestle’s customer service department to inquire about health issues related to fluoride.
“Shortly thereafter, plaintiff, Shimrit Ellis, started to receive very graphic and violent death threats by phone from an unknown female,” the complaint states.
“By way of example, inter alia, some of the treats [sic] that were made to plaintiff by phone were, ‘I’m going to slice your throat;’ ‘I finally found where you live and watched you go to work. You’re going to die;’ and ‘People are going to watch the blood drain from you when I stab you with a knife.'”
‘So outrageous in character’
In addition, the complaint said, Vaughan allegedly described the knife she planned to use to commit the murder.
“These are among many horrible threats to plaintiff,” said the complaint.
“Pamela Vaughan was so outrageous in character and so extreme in degree as to go beyond the pale of decency as is regarded as intolerable in a civilized society,” Ellis’ attorney, Warren Siegel, wrote in the suit.
Ellis said she was receiving calls like that at least three times per week for nearly a month. Finally, she decided to report them to the Philadelphia Police Department.
At that point, says the complaint, “Plaintiff’s phone records were subpoenaed by the police and the calls were traced to Nestle Tollhouse Call Center, which revealed they were being made by a female employee, later identified as Pamela Vaughan, to whom plaintiff lodged the original complaint about the ingredient/additive, fluoride, being in the bottled water.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that, according to online records anyway, it did not appear as though Vaughan has been charged yet with any crime related to Ellis’ call.
The complaint said Ellis was seeking north of $50,000 for intentional infliction of emotional distress.
According to this ingredients list, Pure Life does contain at least some fluoride.

FLUORIDE IN THE BODY
WHAT HAPPENS to fluoride once it has entered the human body? To answer this question one of two methods is usually used.
In one the total quantity of fluoride consumed over a given period from all food and drink is measured and compared with the amounts of fluoride eliminated through the kidneys and bowels. This approach, however, is only partially reliable because some fluoride leaves the body with sweat, saliva, and tears, all of which are difficult to collect. The procedure was first reported in 1891 by two German pharmacologists, J. Brandl and H. Tappeiner, who over the course of 21 months fed slightly more than 14 ounces (403 g) of sodium fluoride to a 28-pound dog.1 During this period the dog excreted 81 % of the fluoride through the kidneys and bowels. Of the fluoride detected in the dog when they then killed it, over 92% was present in the bones and cartilage. The rest, in decreasing amounts, was found in the skin, muscle, liver, teeth, and blood.
The second approach uses the radioactive tracer technique. Radioactive fluoride, 18F, is imbibed with water or injected into a vein, and a Geiger counter then records the amount of radiation which emanates from 18F as it passes through the body. Thus, it can be determined exactly where the radioactive fluoride localizes and how much is eliminated. In these experiments, all information must be obtained in about 8-10 hours because of the rapid disintegration of 18F, which has a half-life of 1.87 hours as it decays (by loss of a positron) to 180, a stable isotope of oxygen. Radioactive tracer studies were first reported on rats in 1954,2 on sheep in 1955,3 on rats and mice in 1958,4 and on humans in 1960.5 Many similar studies have been carried out subsequently.
In 1945 fluoride balance studies were described on five healthy young men for 28 test periods, each consisting of five eight-hour days. These findings indicated that more than 80% of the fluoride ingested in drinking water was being excreted in urine and perspiration.6 Indeed, sweat is “an important avenue for the elimination of fluoride,” the authors stated”
In a later investigation, the daily diet of nine male ambulatory patients, which averaged 4.4 mg fluoride, was supplemented by 9.1 mg of fluoride (as sodium fluoride).7 Of the total daily amount of fluoride (13.5 mg) thus consumed, 3.6 mg was retained, amounting to 115 mg during the 32-day experimental period. During the 18 days following termination of the experiment, the total amount of excess fluoride excreted in the urine and feces was 9.8 mg, which means that only about 10% of the 115 mg of fluoride retained during the experiment was subsequently eliminated.
ABSORPTION INTO THE BLOOD
Under ordinary conditions fluoride is detectable in the blood stream by 18F tracer within 10 minutes after ingestion and reaches a maximum concentration about 50 minutes later.5 About 47.5% is absorbed through the upper bowels and 25.7% through the stomach wall within one hour by simple diffusion, no active transport mechanism being involved.8 This “normal” course of the metabolic fate of fluoride, however, may be modified considerably by many factors. For instance, when accompanied by calcium, aluminum, magnesium, and phosphates present in food or water, fluoride is absorbed more slowly,9,10 although increased intake of calcium and phosphorus has only a limited effect on the amount that is absorbed.7 Similarly, simultaneous ingestion of fat considerably delays the emptying of the stomach,11 but enhances fluoride absorption into the blood stream.12
When the stomach is unduly acid, as in persons with stomach ulcers, fluoride is more rapidly and more completely absorbed than in a less acid stomach. Once fluoride has reached the lower bowels, little absorption takes place because, in contrast to the acidity of the stomach, the bowel content is alkaline, and some fluoride, instead of entering the blood stream, leaves the body with the fecal material. When fluoride is swallowed with food, tablets, or salt, less of it reaches the blood stream than when taken in water or most other liquids, as with milk, in which the calcium and protein tend to bind fluoride; the absorption is slower and less complete. In an experiment with rats, continuous feeding of fluoride caused greater retention in the body than interrupted feeding.13
In workers and in persons residing close to factories which emit fluoride, however, the respiratory tract is a major route of fluoride ingress. In its gaseous form – essentially hydrogen fluoride – the halogen readily enters the blood stream, mainly in the upper portion of the respiratory tract. The uptake of particulate fluoride compounds is governed mainly by the size of the particles: the larger ones settle in the nose, sinuses, and pharynx and are promptly removed from the body with mucus or swallowed.14 Particles with a diameter of 0.5-5μ will be impacted in the alveolar-capillary bed, the terminal areas of the lungs, where they are absorbed into the blood stream within minutes, especially if they are water soluble.15
In the blood stream between 80% and 90% of the fluoride is present in a “bound” or non diffusible form.16 Most of this fluoride appears to be attached by stable covalent bonds to organic molecules. The rest of the fluoride in blood is in a free, ionic form, the concentration of which reflects both the level of intake and the efficiency of excretion. The “normal” level of serum ionic fluoride, according to D.R. Taves of the University of Rochester, is 0.2-0.4 micromole/liter (μM) or 0.004-0.008 ppm “when the drinking water contains only traces of fluoride, and about 0.5-1 μmol (0.01-0.02 ppm) in a community with fluoridated water.17
