FLUORIDE - POISONS LABELED AS "SAFE" CHEMICALS
commonly added to municipal water supplies are chlorine and sodium fluoride. Dr.
Walker notes that poisonous gas chlorine was first used as a weapon in World War
I, before it was used to poison the bacteria in our water suppliers. Bragg warns
that if the chlorine in drinking water is “sufficient to produce an offensive
smell, enough chlorine may enter the intestinal tract to destroy helpful
bacteria and thereby deprive us of the important vitamins which they make for
An update at the conclusion of Bragg’s Book, The Shocking Truth About Water, states, “chlorine in
water has been linked to heart disease, senility, and cancers of the bladder,
liver, pancreas, colon and urinary tract”. The book quotes Dr. Herbert Schwartz
as asserting, “Chlorine is so dangerous it should be banned.”
book calls fluoride “one of the most potent poisons known to man.” The same
sodium fluoride used in our water supplies up to 1.2 parts per million is used
in higher concentration as a roach and rat killer and pesticide. Citing a
documentary by Peter Gray, The Grim Truth About
Fluoridation, Bragg says the origin of adding sodium fluoride to water
supplies occurred in 1939 when an industry commissioned a biochemist to find a
use for the large amount of sodium fluoride wastes produced by aluminum pot
lines. Big industry pressured state and local governments to fluoridate their
water supplies, and the public was given the sales pitch that fluoride would
prevent tooth decay. Bragg notes any intelligent person knows tooth decay is
caused by “poor nutrition, especially the use of refined white sugar,” rather
than the lack of fluoride in their water supply.
The standard label on a
shipment of fluoride is quoted in The New Drug
Story, reading: “Warning - Corrosive liquid… The vapor or liquid
material is very dangerous when it comes in contact with the eyes, skin or any
part of the body, or if taken internally. When in contact with the skin, it can
cause painful and slow-healing burns. Exposure to more than fifty part fumes per
million of air is known to be fatal in thirty to sixty minutes. You are dealing
with a substance so corrosive that it will eat through a quarter inch steal
plate in a few minutes.”
More than 700 chemicals have been found in our
drinking water, and 129 of these chemicals have been cited by the EPA as posing
serious health risks. Yet the EPA requires that our water supplies be tested for
only 14 of these chemicals.
Commenting on the financial and political
overtones of the fluoridation issue, Harvey Diamond in Living Health contrasts the publicity given to the
AIDS virus versus the publicity given to fluoride poisoning: “In the same five
years, from 1981 to 1986, that 10,000 people were succumbing to AIDS, a whopping
quarter of a million people died from fluoride poisoning. Twenty-five times more
deaths and not a word? How come? (Diamond emphasizes he is not suggesting that
victims of AIDS did not merit their publicity, but merely that victims of
fluoride poisoning deserved more publicity than they received.)
AND NOW FOR THE
we have only discussed inorganic calcium, chlorine and sodium fluoride. These
are three of the most common impurities in our drinking water, which an average
American may consume every day unless he or she takes the effort to drink
distilled water. It should offer no consolation to know that most public health
officials consider these three contaminants “safe” But there are many other
pollutants that, although less common in our water supply, are more hazardous.
The update to Bragg’s book cites an ABC News study revealing that more than 700
chemicals have been found in our drinking water, and 129 of these chemicals have
been cited by the EPA as posing serious health risks. Yet the EPA requires that
our water supplies be tested for only 14 of these chemicals. Consider these
statistics from the July 29, 1991, issue of U.S. News &
- Despite passage of the Safe Drinking Water Act in 1974, one in six Americans
(40 million people) continue to drink water containing excessive levels of lead,
a heavy metal that can impair IQ and attention span of children. One in six
children under the age of six have elevated levels of lead in their blood.
- In early summer, half of the waterways in America’s Corn Belt are laced with
unhealthy amounts of pesticides.
- A quarter of all private wells in Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska and
South Dakota, have been found to be contaminated by excessive levels of nitrate,
which has been determined to be carcinogenic on animals. The magazine termed
current research on the effects of nitrates in humans as “disturbingly
incomplete,” but said, “Scientists are certain, however, that nitrate in large
doses can pose a threat to babies… In 1986, an infant in South Dakota died after
being fed formula made with water from a private well with exceedingly high
levels of nitrate.”
- The EPA estimates that as many as 17 million Americans may be threatened by
excessive levels of radon, a radioactive gas that permeates ground water at the
highest levels in New Jerseys, New England and the Western Mountain states.
Preliminary studies have found that drinking water with radon can double the
risk of soft – tissue cancers.
- Waterborne illnesses are on the rise. Municipal water plants use filters and
disinfectants such as chlorine to control the spread of microbes, but evidence
suggest many microbes are resistant to chlorine and some are small enough to get
through filters. Water is both chlorinated and filtered in Carrollton, Ga., but
in 1987, water contaminated by a chlorine-resistant parasite led to the illness
of 13,000 residents. And Montreal researchers have found one-third of all
gastrointestinal illnesses are caused by drinking water.
- Although 70 percent of Americans drink chlorinated water, “its safety over
the long term is uncertain,” the magazine states. A study by the National Cancer
Institute found that drinking chlorinated water may double the risk of bladder
cancer, which strikes about 40,000 people annually. Scientists also have
discovered that chlorine reacts with organic material in water, such as decaying
leaves, to produce hundreds of hazardous chemical by-products, including
- A 1987 study of 1,000 top-priority “Super-fund” hazardous waste sites
revealed four out of every five sites were leaking toxins into ground water. Our
ground water supplies are being threatened not only by these major Super-fund
sites and large chemical plants, but by small businesses such as dry cleaners
and service stations. A Congressional study found about 10 percent of the
nation’s 1,4 million underground gasoline pipelines are leaking.
- The U.S News & World Report issue warns, “While
assessing the health risk of a single chemical is difficult, evaluating the
effects when two or more chemicals are combined is even trickier. In regulating
drinking water, officials have looked at the risks from each contaminant
individually. But in fact, studies show that some chemicals are much more lethal
when mixed together… Text to go here.
EVILS LURKING IN YOUR TAP WATER
Retired American Surgeon ROBERT D WILLIX JR., in his book: “3 Minutes a Day to a 120 Year Lifespan” advises simply to stop drinking the water that comes out of your tap. He concedes that chlorine kills the bacteria that cause typhoid, cholera and dysentery, but the problem, according to Willix, is that chlorinated drinking water is directly responsible for more than 4200 cases of bladder cancer and 6500 cases of rectal cancer every year in America.
There is as much water on earth today as existed 5000 years ago. It has been flushed, drained, poisoned, filtered...and it always lands up back in the same place ...YOUR TAP.
Water consumption is a basic, everyday routine. We drink it, mix it into drinks, and without it we can’t survive. Strange then that the very substance giving us life can also be responsible for giving us disease.
There are evils lurking in our TAP WATER. While it is possible to remove bacteria by boiling ( if any survived the chlorine) it is not possible to boil away dangerous chemical compounds and heavy metals.
As many as 750 different chemicals have been identified by the World Health Organization in the tap water the world over.
In her book “Health healing” Dr. Linda G. Rector Page, N.D., Ph. D. wrote the following: Unfortunately, most of our tap water today is chlorinated, fluoridated, and treated to the point where it can be an irritating, disagreeable fluid instead of a valuable benefit.
In the book “FIT FOR LIFE”, page 107, you can read the following shocking information. “Every 30 minutes three people die from cancer, caused by fluoride, in America. According to Dr. Dean Burke, former chief biochemist at the National Cancer Institute, more than 50 000 Americans a year are dying of cancer caused by fluoridated drinking water.
We do know that a healing apparatus is present and functions in a healthy body and we learned in addition, by means of this treatment that it can be reactivated if the body can sufficiently be detoxified (in degenerative disease and cancer). Pg.131 A Cancer Therapy.

Water - by
Ron Kennedy, M.D., Santa Rosa, California
Consider that the body, in
early adulthood is made of approximately 65% water, and you will see how absurd
it would be ignore its importance. Water is the medium in which all the other
aspects of this course are dissolved. Next to air, it is the most immediate need
of the body. Without air, you can survive five to ten minutes. Without food, you
can survive for weeks. Without water, you can survive around 72 hours.
birth you were about 75% water. If you make it past 95 and die of old age, you
will be about 25% water. You will have transformed from a plum to a raisin in
your 95 plus years. This is called age related dehydration. Therefore, one of
the most important anti-aging strategies is to remain well hydrated at all
The body is made to work perfectly and age slowly. No one knows
how long the body is designed to live, because no one has ever spent a lifetime
doing the best things for his or her body. Few people are actually interested in
doing the best things for the body, and of that small percentage of people who
want to live in maximum health and vitality, correct information is woefully
lacking. It is even worse than that — in the place where correct information
should be, mythology exists. Nowhere is this better seen than in the state of
information about water. Let us clear up all the misinformation about
It is true that the body needs minerals. It is not true that
drinking water containing minerals is good for you — quite the contrary — it is
lethal. Let me explain. The function of minerals in the body is to serve as
co-enzymes for the enzymes which direct metabolism. Without its proper mineral,
an enzyme cannot function correctly. Without the function of the enzymes systems
of your body, your metabolism would come to a screeching halt, and you would die
A mineral, to be useful to the body, must be in a form in
which it can be taken up by its matching enzyme. There is only one way a mineral
can be utilized by an enzyme: when it is delivered to its enzyme by an organic
molecule. An organic molecule is made of a string of carbon atoms. When a
mineral is in such an association with an organic molecule, it is said to be
chelated. A chelated mineral can be transferred to an enzyme, so that mineral
can then function as a co-enzyme. A non-chelated mineral cannot be transferred;
therefore, it is worse than useless.
The body must first chelate a
solution of minerals in a plain electrolytic solution, to be useful in the body.
The human body has limited capacity to chelate minerals. Compared to plants,
this ability is very poor. The consumption of foods of plant origin supplies the
body with minerals it can use immediately, because they are in the chelated
form. This is true of foods of animal origin to a lesser degree, but foods of
animal origin come with an excess of "cides" (herbicides, pesticides, etc.),
preservatives, antibiotics, synthetic hormones, etc., which far outweigh any
mineral value it might provide. Food of plant origin is high in water content,
and this is the best source of water available to you.
The best source of
straight water is distilled water. There was a time when nature provided pure,
distilled drinking water in the form of rainwater and melted snow, sleet, hail,
etc. However, since the advent of industrial pollution in our atmosphere, most
rain is polluted, due to its passage through a polluted atmosphere between the
time it condenses in a rain cloud and the time it strikes the earth. Therefore,
atmospherically derived water is no longer a viable source of pure water. The
only distilled water left is steam-distilled water.
There is no good
third choice of water. Carbon-filtered water is highly touted, mainly by the
people who sell carbon filtration equipment, but many minerals are left after
filtration. Reverse osmosis is a better solution, but still leaves inorganic
minerals present. I suggest you leave these solutions alone and opt for some
combination of steam-distilled water and the juice of organically grown
vegetables and fruits. However, some systems combine carbon filtration with
reverse osmosis and this is, to me, an acceptable solution.
possible choice you can make is mineral water. The common sources of mineral
water are (1) tap water and (2) bottled mineral water. The minerals in mineral
water are inorganic and therefore worse than useless to the body. Inorganic
minerals are not only unavailable as co-enzymes; worse than that, they
crystallize in the body, both inside and outside the circulatory system. When
they crystallize outside the circulatory system, they cause such problems as
arthritis. When they crystallize inside the circulatory system, they are
deposited in the walls of your arteries and, over the years, contribute to the
plaque formation of arteriosclerosis. These atherosclerotic plaques yield only
to prolonged chelation therapy, and while it is true that they can be dealt with
in this manner, is not prevention a much better alternative?
of arteriosclerosis is accomplished through a diet high in fiber and balanced
between protein and complex carbohydrate content and the drinking of only pure
water. Mineral water, whether derived from bottles at a high price, or from a
faucet for almost nothing, is dangerous to your health because, over the course
of years, it will give you hardened arteries and arthritic joints.
drink tap water, you are choosing the least sensible solution possible. While it
is true that tap water has been treated so that no dangerous bacteria are
present, it is still loaded with inorganic minerals. In addition, it also is
loaded with the chlorine used to kill the bacteria. The full effects of this
chlorine on the body are not yet known, and if you drink it, you might as well
enroll in a university study to measure the effect of large doses of chlorine on
the human body. If you were part of such a study you would at least be making a
contribution to future water drinkers.
Fluoride also is added to tap
water in the name of tooth development in children. Whatever benefits for
growing teeth this may provide are overshadowed by the effect of fluoride on the
enzyme systems of the body. Fluoride, folks, is a proven carcinogen!
ways to satisfy your body's need for pure water is to drink, tea, coffee and
soft drinks. If you do this, given what we know about the content of these
items, you must have a strong death wish.
For most people, at least for
those who are leading busy lives, the best solution is to drink only
steam-distilled water. If you have not already developed this practice, I
strongly recommend that you do so now. The cost is around $6 per week for an
average adult, and this includes both your drinking and cooking needs. Needless
to say, it makes no sense to drink only steam-distilled water and then cook with
tap water. Use only steam-distilled water for cooking.
The alternative is
to buy a filtration system. This is a much better solution than drinking tap
water and much more economical than steam distilled water. Do not economize when
selecting a system. The best systems use two carbon filters in tandem with a
reverse osmosis filter and operate off the pressure supplied by your own tap
If you are one of these people who drinks mineral water —
perhaps that fizzy, carbonated, entertaining stuff from Calistoga or France —
please know that you are doing your body no favor at all through this practice
and you are spending much more for your water than you need to. Most of all you
are promoting the crystallization of minerals in the soft tissues of your body
and, over time, you will pay dearly for this practice. When the arteries, which
supply your optic and auditory nerves, are clogged, you will pay for your
inorganic mineral intake with loss of vision and hearing. Each one of the organs
in your body depends on an unrestricted supply of blood for optimum function. If
you clog your arteries with inorganic minerals, you will lose that optimum
function. This includes the brain (by ischemia and stroke) and the heart (angina
and heart attack).
The purity of the water you drink is critically
important to your health and vitality. I have presented you with accurate
information regarding this subject. Look in your phone book yellow pages under
"water." Regular delivery of steam distilled water or a double
filtration/reverse osmosis system are the most convenient and economical methods
of having this precious fluid on hand at all times — short of buying and
operating a steam distiller in your own home. Recently steam distiller
technology has come of age and is well worth looking into. For the cost of
distilled water delivered to one person for one year, a counter-top steam
distiller can be purchased. Search for the words "Water Wise" on the Internet
and see what you come up with.
The rest is up to you. For your liquid
needs the proper action is to allow only pure vegetable and fruit juices and
steam distilled water, sans inorganic minerals, to pass your lips. This
practice, all else being equal, will add many vital and healthy years to your
