Water fluoridation was invented by brilliant schemers who needed a cheap way to dispose of toxic industrial waste and protect them against future lawsuits from fluoride damage to farms and workers. That fluoride is a toxic waste product is a fact. If a municipality decides to quit fluoridating their water, they have to pay exorbitant sums for toxic waste disposal of the remaining fluoride and would again become vulnerable to lawsuits for worker damage
Back in the mid-1940s, politicians were duped with fraudulent science and endorsements, which is not science. In short, they were sold a “public health” idea in which humans are utilized to filter this poison through their bodies, while 99 percent simply goes down the drain. Adding insult to injury, they now MAKE hundreds of millions of dollars selling this hazardous industrial waste, rather than having to pay for its disposal. In his 2012 article “Poison is Treatment—Edward Bernays and the Campaign to Fluoridate America,”9 James F. Tracy reveals the PR campaign that created this fake public health measure:
“The wide-scale US acceptance of fluoride-related compounds in drinking water and a wide variety of consumer products over the past half century is a textbook case of social engineering orchestrated by Sigmund Freud’s nephew and the ‘father of public relations’ Edward L. Bernays,” he writes. “The episode is instructive, for it suggests the tremendous capacity of powerful interests to reshape the social environment, thereby prompting individuals to unwarily think and act in ways that are often harmful to themselves and their loved ones.”
I highly recommend taking the time to read Tracy’s informative expose on how good PR can trump science and keep you in the dark for decades, lest you dig a bit deeper. The oft-quoted phrase emanating from the CDC’s Oral Health Division that water fluoridation is one of the greatest public health achievements of the 20th Century is a classic example of public relations trumping actual scientific data to the contrary.
