Israel Outlaws Water Fluoridation
LiveScience ^ | 8-9-2013 | Douglas Main

Posted on 08/19/2013 6:31:34 AM PDT by Renfield

Israel's Supreme Court has ruled that water fluoridation in the country must end by 2014, according to news reports. This landmark decision goes even further than legislation by the health minister Yael German earlier in the year that would have ended mandatory fluoridation nationwide, reports the Irish publication Hot Press.

Israel is one of the few countries that widely fluoridates, besides the United States, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia. Fluoridation, the addition of fluoride to public drinking water supplies to reduce cavities, is the subject of intense controversy, especially outside of the United States. But opposition to the practice, on the grounds that fluoride has adverse effects on the thyroid, brain and bones, and is an unethical form of mass-medication, appears to be growing.

Israel's decision to ban fluoridation follows a vote to preclude the practice in Portland, Ore., and Wichita, Kan. It was also recently overturned in Hamilton, the fourth most populous city in New Zealand...

I don’t really see the point in it. There may have been at one time but education and better dental care have eliminated the need.

There have been several studies that link fluoride levels in water to IQ problems. The more the fluoride, the lower the IQ in that area. Even levels found in fluoridated water systems in this country.

And my pediatric dentists office is full to bursting every time we’re in there. So it’s not like there are fewer cavities.

The anti flouride movement here got ridiculed to extinction because it framed flouridation as a commie plot.

It pretty much has eliminated cavities but there are underlying health issues.

Lowering IQ across the population does sound like a commie plot.

A pretty good one in fact.

My folks drink water that’s millions of years old. Glacier water from a well 240ft. down. Water comes from the Olympic mountains. You could bottle the stuff and sell it. Sweet tasting. Pure natural.

Interestingly, the push for universal water fluoridation was undertaken first in Mississippi and West Virginia.

I’m sure it’s because the elites have all sorts of love for the denizens of those states and just wanted them to have good teeth...

I'd like to see the racial composition of the two areas. My guess is that the high fluoride areas included the big cities (lot of blacks and Hispanics, whose average IQ is in the 80 range), while the low fluoride areas were rural or suburban areas with mainly white residents (average IQ ~ 100).

Fluoridation leads to gene mutation, which leads to homosexuality. Notice that the countries that have mandatory Fluoridation also have homosexuality problems? Just saying...

Trying to label Sterling Hayden is folly. But whatever he was, he was a fine actor and did more than his share during WWII.

Actually one of the bigger recent studies that showed IQ decrease with increasing fluoride levels was done in China using Han Chinese.

No, the countries too little advanced to use fluoride still kill their queers, so no problem.

"Han" Chinese are not homogeneous on a DNA level, which is what you'd expect of a continental-sized nation with a record of conquering and absorbing hundreds of kingdoms speaking thousands of languages many of which are extinct today. If this blogger is to be believed, the Chinese studies related to fluoride poisoning due to groundwater pollution that added toxic amounts to water systems, not the addition of fluoride to municipal water systems for dental hygiene purposes. I'm highly skeptical of anti-fluoride material, mainly because the countries that have adopted fluoridation (Singapore, Hong Kong, Brazil, Chile, Australia, New Zealand) are uniformly in the top half of the per capita income scale whereas those that have not run the gamut from the EU (which bans all kinds of American agricultural products due to scientistic superstitions that also extend to man-made global warming) to North Korea.

It sounds to me like you should listen to your own advice. Hayden was a party member for a few months after the war when he, admiring their fighting spirit, became “enraptured by the Partisans of Yugoslavia”. He testified against his Hollywood co-workers in front of the HUAC. He later wrote, “What did I care for labor? For racial discrimination? For civil liberties and the war between the classes? Oh, I cared in my own fashion. I cared just enough to embrace these things as props, flailing away night after night at semi-drunken parties.... I’d rather be wrong on my own than be right on somebody else’s say-so.”

So while ADMITTING I was in fact correct, you tell me to heed my own advice.

Is that about right Stormy? Because just admitting you were wrong saves your credibility.

Are you dense? I didn’t deny he was at one time dabbled in the Communist Party. What I said was that Hayden defies you knee-jerk labeling. The man served his nation with honor and distinction and deserves better than you seem to be willing to grant him. I don’t know too many actors who enlisted in the USMC, got selected for OCS, ended up organizing, supplying, and fighting with partisans in the Balkans, and earned a Silver Star - all under an assumed name because he felt his fame would interfere with his effectiveness. Do you? The man is a goddamned war hero - at least respect that.

Actually the IQ effect was noted at levels commonly present in fluoridated water systems in this country. I read the study when it came out.

I supported fluoridation. Then I realized it’s mass medication without apparent benefit. And it’s not done municipally with pharmaceutical grade ingredients. Which is skeevy.

Why are we fluoridating anyways? It’s stupid for my father, who wears dentures, to drink fluoride. If you think it lowers cavities then you ingest it.

BTW, if you look at the cavity rates of western nations, who either fluoridate or do not fluoridate, there is no discernable difference in dental caries. This from the WHO data.

And since fluoride is a thyroid inhibitor one study I WOULD like to see is a comparison of weight in demograhically communities who do and do not fluoridate. Ditto early onset heart disease and infertility.

And my pediatric dentists office is full to bursting every time we’re in there.”

During the last presidential election we leased a small building to use as our local Republican campaign headquarters which was located next door to one of the busiest dentists offices I have ever seen. They were open six days a week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and there was a constant stream of people all day.

One of the ladies working at the headquarters chipped a tooth and so went next door to see if they could provide some assistance. Receptionist said they only take Medicaid patients and suggested she go elsewhere.

I’m sure Texas taxpayers have made a whole lot of dentists very wealthy because of their liberal payments through the state Medicaid coverage. But it’s “for the children”...

Can you obfuscate further?

He didn’t ‘dabble’. A war hero communist is a communist. He did good at one time? Great. He did communism too. You admitted that. So how am I wrong?

I said in the post you spazzed over that he was a communist. A man practicing communism is a communist.

Trying desperately here to how I ‘misspoke’. Please answer yes or no. Was my post incorrect?

No wonder people could rationalize Romney. They can aparently rationalize actual communism. God what happened to FR?

This is a middle/upper middle class dentist practice based on its location. There weren’t a lot of ‘state paid’ children in there.

The point being, there are a few western countries that fluoridate and some that do not. There isn’t a difference between the two sets in terms of prevalence of cavities.
