The warning on any toothpaste reads: If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.
The warning on fluoride rinse says the same: If more than used for rinsing is accidentally swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.
Yet, our government, the Center of Disease and Control, as well as many health officials tell the public “fluoride in water is good for you!”
Cyanide and arsenic is the same as fluoride. In small amounts, it has no immediate effects on the human body. The damage happens when enough has been compounded, and ill-effects become apparent, until death occurs.
Drinking water contains Sodium fluoride, Fluorosilicic acid and Sodium fluorosilicic. [I have hyperlinked MSDS sheets]. Sodium fluoride is the same active ingredient contained in toothpaste and mouth rinse. The same ingredient that comes with the warnings to seek immediate medical help or a Poison Control Center.
I’m no chemist, but common-sense tells me to beware.
The goal of water fluoridation is to prevent a chronic disease whose burdens particularly fall on children and the poor. Its use presents a conflict between the common good and individual rights. Health and dental organizations worldwide have endorsed its safety and effectiveness. Its use began in 1945, following studies of children in a region where higher levels of fluoride occur naturally in the water. Researchers discovered that moderate fluoridation prevents tooth decay, and as of 2004 about 400 million people worldwide received fluoridated water.
Fluoride’s effects depend on the total daily intake of fluoride from all sources. About 70–90% of ingested fluoride is absorbed into the blood, where it distributes throughout the body.
The oft over-looked role in the human consumption of tap water is Hydrogen Fluoride. Hydrogen fluoride is used in the glass etching, electronic, and chemical industries. Hydrogen fluoride is predominantly used in the production of aluminum and chlorofluorocarbons. It is also used for separating uranium isotopes, as a catalyst in the petroleum industry, and in stainless steel pickling.
Chronic exposure to fluoride through drinking water has been observed to cause dental fluorosis or mottling (staining or pitting of teeth) in humans. At higher intakes through oral or inhalation exposure, skeletal fluorosis (i.e., an accumulation of fluoride in the skeletal tissues associated with pathological bone formation) has been noted in humans.
At high concentrations, chronic oral fluoride exposure has been reported to result in adverse pulmonary effects, renal injury, thyroid injury, anemia, hypersensitivity, and dermatological reactions in humans. Fluoride has been observed to cross the placenta in humans.
Oddly, the EPA has not established a Reference Concentration or a Reference Dose for hydrogen fluoride. Nor has the EPA classified hydrogen fluoride with respect to potential carcinogenicity. Also, those in favor of the fluoridation of drinking water say that effects of not putting fluoride in drinking water causes the effects that over-exposure to fluoride causes.
Fluoride, even in small quantities, are accumulated in the human body, the same fluoride that toothpaste and oral mouth wash manufacturers provide a warning to seek immediate medical attention should a larger than normal usage be accidentally ingested.
Kathleen Sebelius: Secretary of Health and Human Services
Hailed by Democratic supporters as the czar of the Health Care industry, hand picked by Barack Obama – despite the opposition protests and controversy shrouding Sebelius.
Sebelius has been one of the vehement supporters of the Affordable Healthcare Act, and the one who directly had over-sight of the Healthcare.gov website creation – and it’s Titanic failure. She is also in charge of the of the healthcare of every American.
Big deal, huh? Sure it is. Sebelius, while governor of Kansas had been involved in shady, and highly controversial actions with the support and her involvement with less that favorable abortion doctors and abortion clinics. Her friendship and supporter of Late-Term Abortionist George Tiller lead to the protests of Republican officials. In addition, she had been criticized while Kansas governor for exponentially growing government.
Lest I remind the reader, that Barack Obama has been criticized for the same ideologies. Late-term and post-birth abortions, growing government and careless government spending. All of which connect to the ideologies of the Director of Office of Science and Technology Policy John P. Holdren. (click here for more on Holdren).
While Sebelius entertained Tiller and the entire staff of his abortion clinic, Women’s Health Care Services, TIller was under criminal investigation by the Attorney General’s office, which led to the filing of 19 criminal charges against him for committing illegal late term abortions. Also at that time, the Legislature was considering a resolution forcing the Attorney General to charge Tiller, amid intense public pressure.
Kansans have long recognized that Kathleen Sebelius is an unmitigated disaster. As Kansas governor and, before that as insurance commissioner, Ms. Sebelius unleashed a fury of government mandates that ultimately served to chase several insurance companies out of the state and left tens of thousands of Kansans without insurance.
In 2009, the executive director of Kansans For Life declared that there was “no real excuse” for Senator Roberts’ support of Sebelius, adding that it was “wrong” and “regrettable.”
“We sincerely believe that today’s vote is one that Americans will come to grievously regret as they meet up with Ms. Sebelius’ policies in their hospital rooms or, more to the point, denial of those rooms and essential health services”.
If anyone should recognize that the Kathleen Sebelius version of government-knows-best is a betrayal of Kansas values, it should be Senator Roberts. After all, before his three-decade tenure in Congress, Pat Roberts spent another decade on Capitol Hill working for Kathleen Sebelius’ father-in-law.
Once she was in Washington, the Sebelius disaster continued. On the eve of the health care vote in 2010, Kathleen Sebelius buried her own report that gave cover to President Obama’s false promises. Her report exposed the reality that ObamaCare would increase the cost of health care by $400 billion over a decade and cause 14 million Americans to lose their insurance policies. By withholding this critical information, she assured ObamaCare would be passed by Congress.
In 2012, investigators announced Kathleen Sebelius was in violation of federal law when she campaigned for Barack Obama’s re-election. Soon thereafter it was discovered that Ms. Sebelius was shaking down private companies in the health care sector in hopes of propping up the president’s already crumbling health care law.
Earlier this year, Kathleen Sebelius sat in judgment of 11-year old Sarah Murnaghan, whose tender life depended on a lung transplant denied to her not by her doctors but by untouchable bureaucrats. After rejecting Sarah’s desperate pleas, Kathleen Sebelius–herself the consummate bureaucrat–coldly stated: “Someone lives and someone dies.”
Kathleen Sebelius is an unmitigated disaster. The untold misery left in her wake as Kansas insurance commissioner and governor and now head of HHS is breathtaking and heartbreaking.
This is the human-being hand picked by president Barack Obama to over-see yours, mine and every American healthcare – our very lives are in her hands. And it isn’t good!
Sebelius has a well-documented history of blocking legislations and laws that would have regulated abortion clinics and doctors performing abortions; protecting women and providing better, humane methods of the procedures – but not shocking, considering her “someone lives and someone dies” attitude.
This should not really come as a surprise, as we are able to grasp why eating healthy is so much more expensive than eating fat, calories and cholesterol. I can go to McDonald’s, Burger King, etc., and buy a 500 calorie, cholesterol burger for a dollar, or two, while purchasing a salad can cost $5.00 or more. That includes sit-down restaurants. Government doesn’t seem to support the Farmer very much either. Yet, go to a Farmer’s Market, or stop alongside a road with a Fruit & Veggie stand and spend pennies on the dollar for any food item.
I can walk into any Giant Eagle, walk to the “organic” section, and see prices twice the cost of those genetically engineered foods.
Vitamins and prescriptions are costly, which discourage people on tight budgets from acquiring vitamins for a healthy “you”.
Sidenote: Turkey’s get blamed for the feeling of being bloated and sleepy after a Thanksgiving meal, yet, the complex carbs are ignored as the guilty source. Being diabetic, I know which foods to stay away from…who puts on their plate; mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, greenbeans…the complex carbs..then blame the turkey for the crash-and-burn?. Just thinking out-loud.
