Playing the Blame Game

My face is very swollen right now; I have an abscessed tooth that is really infected. I am trying hard not to blame anyone but myself, but I really have to wonder who is really to blame.

I have read a great deal in recent years about mercury poisoning from mercury laden dental fillings – and I had plenty. Mom took me to the dentist when I was 12, I had 18 silver amalgam fillings put in – all within a week or two.

I still cannot figure out how I managed to have so many fillings, I was given monthly (or was it weekly) fluoride treatments at the school. These treatments were said to strengthen the enamel on my teeth, to help prevent cavities.

Now, years later, I find out that fluoride is a by-product of another chemical process and we were treated as guinea pigs in a huge government led fraud. Where are all of the studies conducted on those of us who were treated with overdoses of fluoride?

We have learned to avoid flouride treated toothpaste, water with added flouride, as well as juices and other tainted foods.

A study was released just last year showing a relationship between the consumption of sodium benzoate, which is used as a preservative in soft drinks, toothpaste, and many other packaged products.

As parents we have a responsibility to safeguard our children’s health. No one else is going to look out for them. Doctors are too busy treating illnesses – much of it caused by chemical overload – to even give a second thought to preventative measures. Our bodies depend on what we feed it, it is essential that we consume good things and avoid chemicals whenever possible.

If you have health issues, write your congressional representative, and request an investigation into these serious health matters. Studies should be sanctioned to find out what the long-term effects these chemicals will have on us.

In the meantime, I sit here with a swollen face, waiting for the infection to pass so that I can  have this tooth removed. I guess I can blame Obama for my pain — he’s as guilty as anyone.

  • I hope your teeth’s okay now. Try to read this for more info about mercury poisoning, hope you get better 🙂

    Dear Philip,

    Thanks for sharing that information. I they fluoridated the water in Jackson, Michigan, where I grew up and gave kids additional fluoride “treatments” at regular intervals — at school. I was released from classes to sit through this. The nurse would fill a cup with gelled fluoride, we held it over our teeth for 15-minutes.

    I didn’t take long for my teeth to begin breaking down afterwards.

    23 published studies report an association of reduced IQ
    with high fluoride exposure

    The National Academy of Sciences did a thorough review on fluoride in 2006.

    They documented numerous deleterious effects of fluoride on many organ systems including increased potential risk for bone fractures (the well characterized disease of skeletal fluorosis) possibly increased risk of osteosarcoma, reduced IQ, thyroid dysfunction, endocrine dysfunction and others all 300 pages is online if anyone cares to confirm it.

    Of course don’t forget fluoride induced dental fluorsosis (i.e. teeth mottling and a sign of toxic exposure to fluoride – the rate has increased dramatically subsequent to widespread water fluoridation with the CDC and others putting the prevalence somewhere around 30%). The NAS study ended with recommending that the EPA should more strictly regulate fluoride.

    Their findings mirror those in the peer-reviewed medical literature, while Harvard trained toxicologist Phyllis Mullenix also extensively documented behavioral changes in mice upon exposure to blood levels of fluoride not far greater than those experienced through water fluoridation and other sources of exposure.

    Former, well credentialed EPA scientists have been fired for bucking the political line on this issue. Meanwhile 90% of the fluoride placed into our water supply is not industrial grade sodium fluoride, it is silicofluorides, quite simply, scraped from the sides of Florida phosphate plant smokestacks. If it weren’t thrown into the water supply it would have to be disposed of as hazardous waste.
