The Chemical That Causes More Cancer And Death Than Any Other Chemical

287

Most people believe that fluoride is a natural substance. However, this popular belief is not true. In fact, fluoride is the byproduct of the aluminum and nuclear industries use of fluorine gas.

The Merck Index lists fluoride’s primary use as rat and cockroach poison and it is a known carcinogen. It wasn’t until the 1950’s that the FDA was somehow convinced that the poison allegedly helped protect teeth.

Most recently, the California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), published a document called Evidence on the Carcinogenicity of Fluoride and Its Salts that highlights the many health hazards caused by the consumption of fluoride.

The OEHHA document already states that multiple lines of evidence show that fluoride is incorporated into bones where it can stimulate cell division of osteoblasts (bone-forming cells), an admission that already recognizes fluoride as a cause of bone cancer.

The report goes on to state that fluoride induces genetic changes other cellular changes leading to malignant transformation, and cellular immune response thereby increasing the risk of development of osteosarcomas (bone cancer).

Multiple studies dating back to the 1970’s link fluoride exposure to thyroid and other cancers

Several studies conducted by Dr. Dean Burk, the former head of the Cytochemistry Section at the National Cancer Institute, have also shown connections between fluoride exposure and cancer. Dr. Burk’s research dating back to 1977 revealed that fluoride ingestion led to the growth of thyroid follicular cell tumors in mice.

Analysis of the results in rats showed that animals who drank fluoridated water showed: an increase in tumors and cancers in oral squamous cells, a rare form of bone cancer (osteosarcoma), and an increase in thyroid follicular cell tumors, reads a paper by Dr. Lita Lee, Ph.D., entitled “Fluoride – A Modern Toxic Waste.”
