even though I receive no compensation from the Dept. The natural tooth-surfaces of these native children compared with the toothpasted, altered tooth-surfaces of American children, explained the great Almost one in three adult New Zealanders (over 15 years) is obese, and one in ten children”. Whole body fluoridation has no effective purpose, never will and never has. In that sense yes it’s absurd. Effects of single exposure of sodium fluoride on lipid peroxidation and antioxidant enzymes in salivary glands of rats. Again, find someone in Grand Rapids who has indeed consumed the drugged water their entire life of say 60 years, and someone who only drank re-de-fluoridated water or regular water without fluoride. This is the most ad hominem blog I’ve seen yet, with all the “experts” attacking Dr. Sauerheber while providing precious little relevant scientific response to his warnings: this blog reads like a propaganda clinic aimed at Dr. Sauerheber. Regarding this last data, I want to add that any agent that promotes pathological changes in the normal gut microbiota (bacteria/yeasts) may produce intestinal dysbiosis and consequent inflammation of the bowel tissue. The NEJM article stated that the mechanism by which the fluoride ion at 4 ppm killed the victim is not known. Sauerheber says wrong things in my view, but answering ought to be more academic. I Clin. Sounds like these fluoride supporters are paid or have a vested interest in water fluoridation. I brought up the incident of the Justus family who lost their expensive horses because it smacked of an anecdote, fed to you through the Fluoride Action Network with no scrutinization, so you could throw it in Dr. Perrott’s face with such self-righteousness (How did you put it? After finding this data, and without any pre-judgment, one should ask: what is happening in NZ?. We are always hearing claims of toxicity for fluoride in excess – but excess is not the issue with community water fluoridation (CWF). ). Increasing fluoride content deteriorates rat bone mechanical properties. I can understand that to swallow a calcium fluoride tablet would likely be different from a sodium fluoride tablet. Then, digestive leucocytosis refers to an increase of white blood cells after having a meal with cooked/processed foods. No, in solution F is not strongly bound to Ca. There is no easy paradigm to determine whether one should be labeled in a diabetic state, a prediabetic state, or simply an elevated normal, etc. But sometimes just sodium hydroxide is used I think. foods) exists at the tooth surface – and this fluoride is destroyed quickly and completely by abrasion with common toothpastes. So Ken, you disagree with the statement that Flouride negatively effects the bio-availability of calcium in the body? Also found several .gov sites that says Calcium neutralizes the bioavailability of Fluoride. Please read Ken’s article in WordPress that goes into length about “bottom feeding journals” who publish anything that “authors pays for.” Bacteriology Dept., (circa 1964). Fluoride compounds also have significant uses in synthetic organic chemistry. At concentrations of 1-1.5 mg/L, fluoride can strengthen enamel, improving dental health, but at concentrations above 1.5 to 4 mg/L can cause dental fluorosis. You might want to read the articles in Fluoride that describe in detail the poisoning of all the prized horses in Pagosa Springs Colorado by fluoride ion from industrial fluosilicic acid (the identical fluoride anion found in calcium fluoride, but without calcium). It has to do with the fact that water “fluoridation” is thought to be a Federal approved program that is a great public health achievement according to former Surgeons General and that reduces tooth decay by 20-40% (except for those who have no cavities?) So its really hard to know about water and its effect. Shame on federal regulators. What table title are you referring to in the CRC manual for your claim that the “entropy” (no this is not the same as chemical potential or chemical activity) is different in a solution depending on source? Concepts of “natural” and “unnatural” or “artificial” ( or even “industrial”) fluoride often come up in the fluoride debates. is not only because of being an Alumni, and working with Dr. Benson in the latter stages of the article, but also because of discussions with my former Chemistry Professor Dr Russell Doolittle. Yes, overfeeds have occured. If calcium fluoride had have been used the people could not have been acutely poisoned because calcium fluoride is only soluble to about 7-8 ppm fluoride. Do you expect me to change the lab protocols for them because, as you claim there is no difference in the toxicity of the fluoride anion when the ion comes from fluosilicic acid, compared to when it comes from calcium fluoride, as long as it is dilute? Since that time I have been in the UCSD Alumni Association who constantly asks for updates from its graduates on professional work, research discoveries, etc. At concentrations of 4-10 mg/L, skeletal fluorosis can occur. Fluoride in the ocean where it belongs at 12 ppm is natural and harmless to fish due to the thousands of ppm calcium and magnesium in which it is present which buffer or block the assimilation of fluoride.. You even provided the “AFA’ as a convenient initialism. We see fluoride in the tooth structure but do not really know how it gets there. An excellent one I recommend to you was that done by the Royal Scociety of NZ and the Office of the NZ Prime Minister’s Chief Science Advisor. The soft Yukon River water treated with sodium fluoride corrosive and was too much for the fluoridation feed system which corroded and caused fluoride levels to reach an estimated 100 ppm which killed Dominic Smith and sickened 302 others who were life-flighted to the hospital. Sodium fluoride and calcium fluoride have totally different entropies at the same ionic strength. The EPA Office of Water in writing many times confirms that water fluoridation is not under their control because they regulate pollutants, not diluted substances used to treat body parts. One simple question Richard S. So as to avoid rambling diversions. In the years which followed, reports of similar studies appeared in many scientifically prominent research journals. Try telling that hogwash to the Justus family who lost their expensive horses from industrial fluoridated water from the Pagosa River that contained less than 5 ppm protective calcium ion. Fluoride ion does not belong in any living organism. How can Ca2+ “buffer” assimilation if fluoride anions when we have agreed that they are not transported across most membranes? 4. The table shows the results reported by D.B.Ritchie of a two year double blind experiment carried out on 140 children at Half Way Bush Primary School, Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand, years 1959 -1961. It makes no difference when dissolved what the source is. Skeletal scintigraphic findings in endemic skeletal fluorosis. It may be, and often is, called the ENAMEL INTEGUMENT. Your quote: “I did not say that medical diagnostics in India are “superior” to that in the U.S. Where do you guys get the right to distort things I say, to retain the luxury of continuing to argue?” Please, copy and paste my text – so that I can see it – where I accused you of saying medical diagnostics in India are “superior” to that in the U.S. Ok. No, sir, it is you who distort things that I say to retain the luxury of continued argument. It is like a car of 4 wheels, you eliminate one wheel and the car does not run. they say that? You missed the point of the entire article. Speaking of the articles in question, you wrote. ..blah, blah blah…God Created fluoride compounds. Even temporary ingestion they oppose, to their own detriment. That, according to the EPA OW, is the purview of only the FDA. These fluoride ions are to what is commonly referred as being “naturally occurring” fluoride. Their gels have no calcium but rougher silica abrasive. Liu J, Yang S, Luo MJ, Chen T, Ma XJ, Tao N, Zhao X, Wang DH. But toxic concentrations are well above the optimum levels recommended for community water fluoridation. Systemic inflammation is then a big risk for cancer. Thus, the complete concept is: Fluoride is an enzyme inhibitor and see what happens in the human body when enzymes are inhibited. Fluoride ions can react with all positive ions, so if F ions are in blood, they can bind to Calcium ions of bones, making them less soluble but brittle. After all, there is plenty of bad work in good journals. After that point, HFA no longer exists in that water. Yes coumadin is a drug. I was never in the loop but I am very skeptical they would have been either disinformed or uninformed about the agenda, and I at times imagine there may have been some clandestine large-scale filtering implemented, but that’s pure speculation on my part. What is your point? It’s interesting how this site has introduced an ad hominem attack on Dr. Peckham referring to him as an anti fluoride activist. End of story? I’m in the process of developing our toothpastes and the ingredient called “fluoride” was such a hot topic I started digging very deep on this issue. Only a faulty diet will leave unsightly debris (possibly materia alba), and then brushing becomes a necessity. A level of about 300 to 1 is typical, for the Colorado and many U.S. rivers. I floss and never get cavities and my dentist says I have perfect teeth . So, Michael, if you want to allow untruthful or unbalanced people to make authoritative claims without being challenged, find yourself a nice island where truth has no meaning – where the average lifespan would be about 30 years. Adios Amigos . These safety data sheets are irrelevant to the question of safety of the water that comes out of your tap. Nature;173, 33 – 34. which are helpful in “policing the plaque”… can be slightly improved by a small amount of strontium chloride, and a very little fluoride (below 50 ppm). . 2005-06 6.04 11.44 7.78 30 This claim has so many egregious distortions that it would take a week to decipher them for you. And 19 years later the article was finally published in its final form. Please don’t insult me. Conference Paper. J DENT RES July 1960 39: 845-856, doi:10.1177/00220345600390041101, Here’s another: little difference in fluoride content of outer layers of enamel at less than 10 micrometers depth, when comparing low fluoride area 0.1 mg/L with an area at 1.9 mg/L. The dental authorities have neglected to inform the public many things about fluoride, the most important being of course, that a natural concentration of fluoride (much higher than in our common Conference: IADR/AADR/CADR General Session and Exhibition 2013. The NaF is more soluble because it is polar while Calcium Fluoride is non polar (or much less polar) so it is not easily dissolved by water, a polar compound. This is unable to influence teeth caries at 75,000 times lower concentration than in toothpaste at 1,500 ppm.”. You have not provided anything to look at. Ken, thanks for the paper. ; 85 (7), pp 997–1000. Of course bone fluoride accumulation there would be less than for an artificially fluoridated city at the same 1 ppm level in a city with much softer water than Hereford. The FDA has no role in approving drinking water additives pursuant to their agreement with the EPA in the early 1980’s. Mansfield P "Water Fluoride: As Much Harm as Good" HealthUK Issue 10/10/2000 (Fluoride im Wasser: so viel Schaden wie Gutes) Yu Y et al., "Neurotransmitter and receptor changes in the brains of fetuses from areas of endemic fluorosis." Ok, Sauerheber, ask and ye shall receive…….. “Controlling for covariates, water fluoridation method was significant only in the models that included dwellings built before 1946 and dwellings of unknown age. Hanna Jun, why have you made this specific comment here? Deterioration of teeth and alveolar bone loss due to chronic environmental high-level fluoride and low calcium exposure. And it is usually those who are sensitive to fluoride who reject it totally so understand the origination of their position. Every time you take a shower, fluoride is absorbed by your skin and the vapors are inhaled which also contain fluoride. Then again this sort of deceit is of interest to the institution involved. You should not make assumptions about either my motives or level of understanding. But I disagree that it is a mixture of fluorapatite and hydroxyapatite. Cross out the word “instead” from the sentence and it would be accurate description of what I said. God Created fluoride compounds. Gedalia (9) of the Hebrew College of Medicine, Hadassah, has shown that the tooth-surface fluoride varies little, indeed, whether Foreign countries do not and never will understand dentist obsessions with whole body fluoride dosing through treated public drinking water, and the journal wanted to know what the rationale for this useless practice is. These people are well known for misrepresenting and distorting the science. Please correct me if I am wrong, but it sounds like a very well off family in Sonoma, California lost some very expensive horses because of fluoride ingestion from a municipal water supply. The Justus’ lost millions of dollars worth of horses because of CWF which originated at the municipality. The loss of pancreatic enzymes normally produces intestinal dysbiosis. Why this high prevalence of obesity? (10) A.E.Russell, Journal of Dental Research, 40; 3,602 (1961). If one doesn’t define what he refers to, then he is the one who is “all over the place.” That’s why labels usually have only limited use. Yes industrial fluoride and warfarin were both used as rat poisons. It’s all cumulative. I agree he is wrong to describe teeth enamel as “hydroxyapatite” – that idea is very naive. Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab.;293(4):E958-64. (Just listening to “Mindwalk.”). This came as a personal email to me by mistake. They could go after the EPA; they could go after the municipality. The IJMEST Journal asked about it and was fine with it. I am happy to clarify but, at the moment, I can only interpret your lack of example as indicating a bias. Furthermore, fluoridation of water violates people’s rights and is unethical. Doing so exposes a very weak argument, one based on pedantry only. An interesting side-issue was the fact that children whose diet was supplemented by a phosphate mineral powder and who used no toothpaste had 16 times less decay experience than children who did use toothpaste whether with, or without, a phosphate mineral supplement! In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Yes, I did call Saueerheber’s paper a “meandering and naive anti-fluoridation rant.” But I think I justified that description. After all, look what can happen with the right lawfirm. Popular bottled water brand Dasani, for example, lists magnesium sulfate, potassium chloride, and salt alongside purified water on its Nutrition Facts label. You either lie to yourself, in which case you are not rational, or purposely lie to everybody else, which would probably mean there is some money in it for you somewhere. Adding fluoride from industrial sources lacking calcium from 0.2 ppm to 1 ppm, a 5 fold increase, causes the calcium to fluoride ratio to be drastically lowered and causes far more fluoride assimilation into the blood after ingestion than would have been assimilated if the water were harder. Those papers reported inhibition of pancreatic enzymes, esterases, anti-oxidative enzymes and phosphatases. The U.S. Those who exaggerate to make a point make other statements that are correct. Maybe you meant LESS toxic instead of MORE toxic. 2: I became aware that the anti-fluoride activists were telling lies about the science behind community water fluoridation. It breaks down to its constituent cations and anions on dissolution and the origin of the Ca2+ ion is completely irrelevant (far more comes from other sources than from the CaF2). The true believers will never convince the Atheists that God exists and the Atheist will never get the believers to loose thier faith. (1980) reported 23 enzymes present in maternal milk. If you place a title like that in front of your name, it carries a certain responsibility . If soluble in water, then the solutions are usually neither strongly acidic nor strongly basic. It seems odd that anyone would push adding chemicals to water with such zeal. I have donated a small amount to the campus many years ago. My understanding is that the losses were not recovered. Well they could not because the potassium ions could be a problem with a sodium balance and the hydrogen ions could be a problem. Second, his reference to “rodenticides, insectisides, and pediculicides” is nothing but fear-mongering. (See point 1.) I was born in 1953 in Evanston, IL which was fluoridated in 1947, so I never had a chance to opt out of the program. They also now make a toothpaste with baking soda, but no calcium, and some other abrasive ingredient, titanium dioxide, which I wasn’t too sure about for myself. I have no idea what you mean, that the Hooper Bay disaster has nothing to do with the difference between calcium fluoride and industrial fluoride from fluosilicic acid. Dr. Peckham was the senior editor and after several adjustments and additional materials that were asked for were included, the article was published. Maori in the Ureweras had very good teeth (about 1% decay) till they went to Auckland. The first part of the article on natural calcium fluoride minerals vs industrial synthetic fluoride compounds, where one is not capable of acute lethal poisoning and the second one is, is an introduction to the Hooper Bay fluoridation overfeed disaster that gave the original impetus to the article in the first place and that produced lethal 4-5 ppm blood fluoride levels in the deceased victim. If you eat natural food and use propoer ways of cooking you may get the balance better. I asked if it would be allowed to list the affiliation with the Chemistry Dept. Now that is simply an observation and polite request- it is not a personal attack. First Aid Measures Eye Contact: Check for and remove any contact lenses. So it’s what other minerals which we may be lucky to get in balance in water, molybdenum &c even for teeth. He said I could of course list the affiliation with the UCSD Chemistry Department on articles I publish. It is on their page âMedical Management Guidelines for Hydrogen Fluoride, The toxic effects of hydrogen fluoride are due primarily to the fluoride ion, which is able to penetrate tissues and bind intracellular calcium and magnesium. !! 2005;346:56–69. Calciumfluorid kristallisiert in dem weitverbreiteten Fluoritgitter . Under Prof Campbell, I developed a highly technical analytical test for tooth-surface magnesium. The fluoride content of the bloodstream in fluoridated U.S. consumers is about 75% due to water fluoride consumption (NRC). These data would be of course be unethical to obtain but are needed before you can claim that artificially fluoridated people behave exactly the same as whether water is consumed that has either no fluoride, or artificially added fluoride, or natural fluoride from calcium rich rock dissolution. 2: You say you “stand by your data and in fact it is unchallengeable.” Will, true, but isn’t it a bit childish to call it “your data.” After all it was hardly new – you were just demonstrating well known and understood chemical relationships in what was nothing more than a school project. Warfarin has found clinical use in blood disease but is only given by prescription, and patients need to be closely monitored because of side effects. Fluoride does not indiscriminately “attach to positive ions in the body, bones, teeth, pineal gland.” It reacts with active forms of calcium – bones, teeth, and calcified tissues. It has important vital significance in maintaining health just as the skin of and is necessary for teeth health and is harmlessly so low it can’t affect any function systemically but yet is so high that it can actually perturb the caries process in the hardest substance in the body, enamel. 1.
