Fluoride Joins The Conspiracy?

I guess that's what Terry Clark is trying to say.

Her column in today's Eureka Reporter ties together the Burgess and Moore shootings in Eureka, some questionable dental practices and the pharmaceutical industry's ties to the medical profession to local water fluoridation.

I've gone on record here more than once in opposing fluoridation of public water, and not because I consider fluoride any threat to public health. I just think fluoridation should be a personal choice.

One thing that I've always found surprising about the fluoridation issue is the number of dentists who support fluoridation. I would think it would be in their economic interest if water was NOT fluoridated, assuming claims of fluoridation's effectiveness are true.

I don't see how either fluoride, or dentists, can be tied to the supposed conspiracy going on regard medications that Terry Clark seems to be referring to.

One thing I would like to know is who supplies fluoride to the water districts- pharmaceutical companies?

I don't hear any fluoridation advocates calling for repeal of the American ban on stevia. You know, the natural herb 100 times sweeter than sugar that is 0 calories and causes 0 cavities. Plus, if you've ever tried cola from stevia-happy countries, it tastes better, too.

Don't take my word for it. Buy stevia at one of our natural food stores and cook with it. (You can only buy it as a food additive. In America, it's illegal to sell food containing stevia.)

ahhhhh, so THAT'S where the Meth in young Mr. Burgess's system came from...

Who knows maybe Chrissy's meth came from Terry? Who knows? Or then maybe it came from those big nasty "Pharmacuetical Drug Cartels".

Terry is pretty much a complete wacko. His doctor is a quack, and he is grabbing at straws to make claims.

The funny part is he also has a blog.

And what blog might that be?

Too many questions about the widespread harm caused by fluoride and mercury would eventually lead to class action lawsuits that would make the tobacco cases seem like a lovefest.

That's what a lot of this whole push for fluoridation is about,if studies come through in years ahead which prove that it is harmful,us taxpayers are left with the burden of paying to reverse our course of action which we are taking now. Fluoridation is a guaranteed cash cow for water service districts and cities and accessories from there.You'll see taxes levied to provide studies on how to remove it,studies on what it has done and will do to those exposed already,and studies on studies on studies and so on.

Fluoride is harmful and part of the liberal fascist control model to dumb us down, which is why fakes like Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap from the Water Board are so in favor of it.

I wish they'd of had floride in the water when I was a kid. Despite that loser Kaitlan being on the water board (isn't she the gal that has pancake breakfasts in her ouse to make ends meet?).

Clark's diatribe is a mish-mash of unconnected rants that could get a public forum only in the Distorter.

But I sympathize with her pain and disappointment that psychotropic medications she was prescribed hasn't stopped the irrational thoughts.

Of course Fred isn't any better off, supposing that dentists will choose to suppress cavity reducing activity as a means to increase customers. That’s so ridiculous it could come only from someone who has no education or exposure to professional responsibility. That fits Fred to a tee.

BTW, fluoride additive(fluorosilicic acid or sodium silicofluoride) is a hazardous waste byproduct from the manufacture of phosphates. It's removed from the waste stream by factory smokestack scrubbers. Cargill Fertilizer Inc. is the largest producer.

Nope. Sorry, dumbshit. That's not what I said. I was suggesting the opposite of what Clark was: That I find it hard to believe it's some money making conspiracy, at least by dentists. Most I've heard from support fluoridation, but, as I said, it would actually be in their self- interest economically to oppose it.

Since most dentists seem to support fluoridation, it must be for some other reason than as part of an economic conspiracy.

Fluorine (ide) in its many forms can definitely be lethal if ingested in quantities unapproved by the government but its dangers are insignificant when compared with the horrific impact of uncontrolled DHMO. The fight to prevent government regulation of DHMO is being led by big oil and its allies the big drug companies who definitely do NOT want you to become aware of the seriousness of this issue.

The only connection between teeth and the Burgess shooting is that Large Marge and most of her friends don't have too many of them left.

NO Fred, you want to twist your own words, but it doesn't work.

You wrote you were "surprised" that dentists supported floridation. That means you expected dentists to NOT support floridation.

In essence you wrote that you expect dentists to act primarily in their own economic interest, not in their patient's interests.

Fess' up to your written words that show you having a cynical and ignorant attitude toward professionals (who you are really envious of)!

You are full of crap, 4:22.

You don't know what you're talking about. I rest my case, and you make an ass out of yourself.

I was referring to the column in the Eureka Reporter, dumbshit.

It suggested dentists were involved in some economic conspiracy. I suggested they were not.

You are an ass, big time!

While all of you here are pondering this most weighty of issues I dare you to view this post and its linked video. Sorry to be off topic, but some perspective is in order.

Wow Fred! You've finally reached your highest skill level, name calling as a substiute for thinking ability. Kinda just like you did in high school? You really DID learn everything you know in kindergarten.

Take some advice from the big boys and stick to reminiscing about the "good ole' days" when it seemed like you might have made something of your life beyond waiting for a welfare check.
