Default Fluoride – the slavery toxic

Everybody “knows” that fluoride prevents cavities in our teeth…
Most people don’t know some of the more interesting facts on this highly toxic chemical waste.

Toxic waste - aluminium
Fluoride is a highly toxic chemical waste from the production of aluminium (and other metals). Several Americans sued the aluminium industry for their damages (health problems) caused by Fluoride. So they invented “practical” ways to get rid of Fluoride: rat poison, insecticide and Sarin gas.
The (German) Nazis had experimented with Fluoride in the concentration camps to discover that their slave labourers became docile and it can be used for sterilisation. These days Fluoride is also used in psychiatric drugs (that cause psychiatric problems).

In the 1950s it was discovered that Fluoride “prevents cavities in our teeth”. The research was really “independent”; financed by Aluminium Company of America (ALCOA), Aluminium Company of Canada, American Petroleum Institute, DuPont, Kaiser Aluminium, Reynolds Steel, US Steel and National Institute of Dental Research.
In 1952 a massive advertisement campaign was started, to dump Fluoride in the American tap water and tooth paste: http://rense.com/general3/fluo.htm

The Bush family is connected to ALCOA; see for example Paul O’Neil, who served as CEO for ALCOA before joining the George W. Bush administration: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_H._O'Neill


Diabetes
In the 1950's, USAF Major George R. Jordan testified that the Soviets openly admitted to "using the fluoride in the water supplies in their concentration camps, to make the prisoners stupid, docile, and subservient".

The available studies show that in some people, fluoride exposure causes increases in blood glucose or impaired glucose tolerance and/or increases the severity of diabetes. Impaired glucose metabolism appears to be associated with serum or plasma fluoride concentrations of about 0.1 mg/L or greater in both animals and humans.
Diabetic individuals will often drink more water than the average, so will have a higher than normal fluoride intake (at least in the USA): https://www.diabetesdaily.com/forum/...tion-diabetes/

Fluoride increases blood glucose levels and impairs glucose tolerance, likely by inhibiting insulin production or secretion.
Impaired glucose tolerance, often a precursor to type 2 diabetes, has been found to occur in humans with fluoride intakes of only 0.07-0.4 mg/kg/day. Fluoride intake can therefore exacerbate diabetes.

Human and animal studies have found that excessive fluoride consumption leads to increased serum fluoride levels, with a concomitant increase in serum glucose levels.
If the body is not able to regulate the amount of glucose in the blood, as occurs in diabetes mellitus, chronic elevated blood sugar (hyperglycemia) can lead to serious complications.
This can cause damage to the kidneys, brain, nervous system, cardiovascular system, retina, legs and feet, etc.

Studies on both animals and humans have shown that after fluoride ingestion more insulin is secreted, which can result in hyperglycemia.
Fluoride may also lead to increased insulin resistance, or decreased insulin sensitivity, thus contributing to glucose intolerance: http://fluoridealert.org/issues/health/diabetes/

In a “scientific” report published in 2016, Fluegge used mathematical models to analyse publicly available data on fluoride water levels and diabetes incidence and prevalence rates across 22 states between 2005 and 2010.
Two sets of regression analyses suggested that supplemental water fluoridation increases diabetes incidence.
Fluegge reported that a one milligram increase in average county fluoride levels predicted a 0.17% increase in age-adjusted diabetes prevalence: https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0817132107.htm

Over 32 years, from 1980 to 2012, the number of adults diagnosed with diabetes in the US nearly quadrupled, from 5.5 million to 21.3 million. Among adults, about 1.7 million new cases of diabetes are diagnosed each year.
If this trend continues, as many as one third of the US population could have diabetes by 2050.

County-level data for the years 2005 and 2010 were collected, investigating if there is a correlation between diabetes incidence and fluoride in the drinking water.
Fluoride added to achieve “optimal” levels (between 0.7–1.2 ppm) was significantly associated with increases in both the incidence and prevalence of diabetes.

Adjusting for changes in physical inactivity, obesity, poverty, log population per square mile, mean number of years fluoridated and year, a 1 mg increase in the amount of added fluoride for an average county significantly increased the diabetes incidence by 0.23 per 1,000 as compared to a county without such an increase.
For added fluoride, a 1 ppm increase produced a 0.35 per 1,000 increase in diabetes incidence and a 0.27% increase in prevalence.

Among the 3 fluoridation chemicals used in this data set - sodium fluoride, fluorosilicic acid, or sodium fluorosilicate -, only sodium fluoride showed a significant and robust increase of diabetes.

Alzheimer’s disease
In 1965, 3 independent studies were published that linked aluminium with Alzheimer’s disease. Subsequently numerous international studies have found more Alzheimer’s disease in areas with high aluminium levels in drinking water.
Normally metals from the body don’t reach the brain.

In 2013, Akinrinade and his colleagues from Bingham University in Nigeria showed that fluoride makes aluminium reach the brain. Fluoride combines with aluminium to form aluminium fluoride. In the body it eventually combines with oxygen to form aluminium oxide or alumina.
Aluminium oxide has been found in the brains of patients with Alzheimer’s disease: http://fluoridealert.org/news/is-dem...-fluoridation/

US FDA didn’t approve fluoride because of toxicity
The FDA has never approved fluoride drops and tablets as either safe or effective, even though fluoride drugs have been prescribed for over 50 years. In 2016, the FDA announced that marketing fluoride drops and tablets for cavity prevention violates federal law.
On 13 January 2016, the FDA sent a warning letter to Kirkman Laboratories Inc., demanding the immediately cease of selling fluoride drops and tablets:
Quote:
The above products also are “prescription drugs” as defined in section 503(b)(1)(A) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 353(b)(1)(A)], because, in light of their toxicity or potential for harmful effects, or the method of their use, or the collateral measures necessary for their use, they are not safe for use except under the supervision of a practitioner licensed by law to administer them.1
https://www.fda.gov/ICECI/Enforcemen.../ucm483224.htm

Strangely, the 4 largest pharmacies in the US - Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, and Wal-Mart - continue to sell unapproved fluoride drugs, in violation of the federal prohibition on introducing unapproved drugs and the laws of at least 17 stated which prohibit the "sale" of any drug not approved by the FDA: https://articles.mercola.com/sites/a...tap-water.aspx


Cognitive impairment and other side effects
The following literature review by Peckham an Awofeso is not so positive about the health effects of fluoride– “Water Fluoridation: A Critical Review of the Physiological Effects of Ingested Fluoride as a Public Health Intervention” (2014): https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3956646/

Quote:
The United States' lead in instituting artificial water fluoridation led to its acceptance by the World Health Organization as an effective oral health intervention. At least 30 nations instituted artificial water fluoridation policies. However, a number of countries including Sweden, The Netherlands, Germany, and Switzerland stopped fluoridating their water supplies due to concerns about safety and effectiveness [8, 9]. Currently, only about 5% of the world's population—350 million people—(including 200 million Americans) consume artificially fluoridated water globally. Only eight countries—Malaysia, Australia, USA, New Zealand, Singapore, and Ireland, more than 50% of the water supply artificially fluoridate. Over the past two decades many communities in Canada, the USA, Australia, and New Zealand have stopped fluoridating their water supplies and in Israel the Minister for Health announced in April 2013 the end of mandatory water fluoridation. However, public health authorities continue to try and develop new community water fluoridation schemes.
(…)

The inability to control individual dose renders the notion of an “optimum concentration” obsolete. In the USA, a study in Iowa found that 90% of 3-month-olds consumed over their recommended upper limits, with some babies ingesting over 6?mg of fluoride daily, above what the Environmental Protection Agency and the WHO say is safe to avoid crippling skeletal fluorosis [41]. Most recently a study in the UK of fluoride levels found in tea concluded that “… fluoride concentrations can exceed the recommended DRI of 4?mg/day…, in certain tea commodities, under the minimal brewing time of 2?min…” [42, page 569]. This study used nonfluoridated water but supports earlier findings by Koblar et al. who report that the adequate intake of fluoride from a 70?kg adult consuming five cups of tea daily ranges from 25 to 210% depending upon tea brand and whether the water is fluoridated [43].
(…)

In a meta-analysis of 27 mostly China-based studies on fluoride and neurotoxicity, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health and China Medical University in Shenyang found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children [50]. All but one study suggested that high fluoride content in water may negatively affect cognitive development. The average loss in intelligence quotient (IQ) was reported as a standardized weighted mean difference of 0.45, which would be approximately equivalent to seven IQ points for commonly used IQ scores with a standard deviation of 15 [50]. While fluoride's effect on IQ in this meta-analysis did not reach statistical significance, the combined effect at population level is remarkable. A particular concern of the NRC committee was the impact of ingested fluoride on the thyroid gland [49]. In a 2005 study, it was found that 47% of children living in a New Delhi neighbourhood with average water fluoride level of 4.37?ppm have evidence of clinical hypothyroidism attributable to fluoride. They found borderline low FT3levels among all children exposed to fluoridated water [51].
(…)

There are 66 enzymes which are affected by fluoride ingestion, including P450 oxidases, as well the enzyme which facilitates the formation of flexible enamel [65]. A recent study of the effects of inorganic fluoride compounds on human cellular functions revealed that fluoride can interact with a wide range of enzyme-mediated cellular processes and genes modulated by fluoride including those related to the stress response, metabolic enzymes, the cell cycle, cell-cell communications, and signal transduction [66]. Due to high negativity of fluoride, it interacts actively with positively charged ions such as calcium and magnesium. In industrial settings, hydrofluoric acid poisoning is usually treated with intravenous calcium gluconate as such poisoning is associated with acute hypocalcaemia [67]. As with calcium, magnesium plays important roles in optimal bone and teeth formation. By competing with magnesium and calcium in teeth and bones, fluoride deranges the delicate bone formation and bone resorption processes. Such derangements, and consequent intensity of fluoride's adverse effects on bone and teeth, are amplified in malnutrition, calcium deficiency, and magnesium deficiency [68, 69]. Chronic fluoride ingestion is commonly associated with hyperkalaemia and consequent ventricular fibrillation [70].

Diet to prevent cavities
Fluoride advocates often claim that the reduction in tooth decay that has occurred since the 1950s is the result of the widespread use of fluoridated water.
Despite rejecting fluoridated water, tooth decay Europe has declined at a similar speed as in the US. Tooth decay rates in Europe are generally lower than in heavily fluoridated US: http://fluoridealert.org/studies/caries01/

A 1932 study shows that a “cereal-free diet rich in Vitamin D” can prevent caries in children (some “conspiracy theorists” even claim that this can reverse tooth decay).
Mellanby and Pattison – The Influence Of A Cereal-Free Diet Rich In Vitamin D And Calcium on Dental Caries In Children” (1932): https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/art...07379-0001.pdf
Quote:
In our first investigation on children we had observed that the diet containing most cereal, especially oatmeal, was associated with the greatest spread of caries. This observation seemed to receive support in some investigations of Boyd and Drain,1" who found that in- the teeth of forty-five diabetic children who were being fed on the standard diets used for the treatment of this disease, caries was arrested; later, in conjunction with Nelson," they fed thirteen non-diabetic children on a similar diet, and again found that any active caries present at the beginning of the investigation was arrested. The diabetic diet given was devoid of cereals and rich in vitamin D.
(…)

The purpose of this investigation was to test the effect of a cereal-free diet on the incidence and extension of dental caries in children, and to compare the results with those obtained in the third investigation the diet in each case was rich in vitamin D and calcium, but whereas in the present investigation it was devoid of cereals, in the third it contained a fair amount of these substances. A few children, receiving only the hospital diet, were used as controls, but the results are not given here they corroborate those obtained with the ordinary hospital diet in the earlier investigations.4
(…)

The mouth of each child was charted before the diet was introduced, the number of carious teeth, the amount and extent of each carious area, and the " degree " of hardness or softness noted.

The main results are summarized in Table III, and are compared with those obtained in the previous investigations. They indicate that a diet rich in vitamin D and calcium and devoid of cereals has greater inhibitory and curative effects on dental caries than any previously tested. Thus the new caries points observed to develop during the feeding period were only 0.05 per child as compared with the previous best result of 0.2 per child. The figure 0.05 is so small that it probably falls within the margin of error of this type of observation, and new caries may be considered, therefore, to have been suppressed. Only 0.32 teeth per child, as compared with the previous best figure of 0.8, showed an extension of the areas which were carious at the beginning of the investigation; this figure also probably comes within the margin of error. The average age of the children in the third and fourth investigations was under 6, while the average in the first and second was approximately 8 years. In order to make the figures more comparable, therefore, the results for the children of about 6 years in the first and second investigations -have been grouped together in Table IV, with the results of the later investigations. The hardening of carious areas, which indicates the diminution in activity of the carious process and ultimate arrest, was one of the characteristic changes brought about by the diets used. It will be observed that the removal of cereals from the diet also increased the amount of arrest of caries as compared with that produced by the diets containing this food. The average number of teeth per child in which some hardening of active carious areas was found was 4.7, as compared with 3.9 teeth per child, the best result previously obtained. It is doubtful whether better results are attainable in hypoplastic teeth on the basis of our present knowledge.
(…)

The tests do not indicate that in order to prevent dental caries children must live on a cereal-free diet, but in association with the results of the other investigations on animals and children they do indicate that the amount of cereal eaten should be reduced, particularly diring infancy and in the earlier years of life, and should be replaced by an increased consumption of milk, eggs, butter, potatoes, and other vegetables. They also indicate that-a sufficiency of vitamin D and calcium should be given from birth, and before birth, by supplying a suitable diet to the pregnant mother. The teeth of the children would be well formed and more resistant to dental caries instead of being hypoplastic and badly calcified, as were those in this investigation.
(…)

SUMMARY
1. A group of children averaging 5 ½ years of age were given a cereal-free diet rich in vitamin D and calcium for a period of six months. The teeth of the children were defective in structure (hypoplastic), and much active dental caries was present at the beginning of the investigation.
2. Initiation and spread of caries were almost eliminated by these diets, and the results were better than those of the previous investigation in which-the vitamin D alone was increased in a diet containing bread and other cereals.
3. Active caries was arrested on this cereal-free diet to a greater extent than in the previous investigations, when cereals were extensively used.
I’m not sure what “hardening of carious areas” means though. This almost sounds like the tooth decay was “reversed” by a diet rich in vitamin D and Calcium and low in sugar…

The success of calcium and vitamin D in strengthening bones and teeth is completely dependent on something the mainstream dentistry and medical professions completely ignore - sufficient magnesium levels! (Vitamin K2 is also important for the correct placement of calcium in the body).

Calcium Magnesium Balance

A healthy cell has the right calcium magnesium balance – high magnesium and low calcium levels. Calcium can lodge anywhere in your body and cause serious harm if not balanced with magnesium, which regulates the action of calcium. For instance, excess calcium buildup around your bones and joints mimics arthritis. Too much calcium lodged in your heart imitates arterial lesions. Calcification or calcium poisoning can manifest as heart disease, cancer, wrinkled skin, kidney stones, osteoporosis, dental problems, bone spurs, cataracts and many other health problems.

Calcium and magnesium are opposites in their effects on our body structure. As a general rule, the more rigid and inflexible our body structure is, the less calcium and the more magnesium we need.

Dr. Garry Gordon wrote, “If you have compromised cell membranes or low ATP production for any reason, then the cell has trouble maintaining the normal gradient. This is because the usual gradient is 10,000 times more calcium outside of cells than inside; when this is compromised you will have increased intracellular calcium, which seems to always happen at the time of death. Whenever intracellular calcium is elevated, you have a relative deficiency of magnesium, so whenever anyone is seriously ill, acute or chronic, part of your plan must be to restore magnesium, which is poorly absorbed through oral means.”

The ratio of calcium to magnesium is vital for cell membranes and the blood-brain barrier.
Calcium Intake in risk of Cardiovascular Disease

Countries with the highest calcium to magnesium ratios (high calcium and low magnesium levels) in soil and water have the highest incidence of cardiovascular disease. At the top of the list is Australia. In contrast, Japan with its low cardiac death rate cites a daily magnesium intake as high as 560 milligrams.

Adequate levels of magnesium are essential for the heart muscle. Those who die from heart attacks have very low magnesium but high calcium levels in their heart muscles. Patients with coronary heart disease who have been treated with large amounts of magnesium survived better than those with other drug treatments. Magnesium dilates the arteries of the heart and lowers cholesterol and fat levels.

Magnesium taken in proper dosages can solve the problem of calcium deficiency.– Dr. Nan Kathryn Fuchs,– author of The Nutrition Detective

It is magnesium that controls the fate of potassium and calcium in the body. If magnesium is insufficient, potassium and calcium will be lost in the urine and calcium will be deposited in the soft tissues (kidneys, arteries, joints, brain, etc.). Magnesium and calcium complete for many of the body’s chemical pathways.

Calcium causes muscles to contract, while magnesium helps them relax.
Calcium Levels in Blood and Bones

Magnesium and calcium are paired minerals. Several studies have reported that increasing calcium in the diet significantly reduces the absorption of magnesium. Calcium intakes above 2.6 grams per day may reduce the uptake and utilization of magnesium by the body and increase magnesium requirements. So much stress is placed on the importance of calcium by the dairy industry that we may, in fact, be harming our magnesium absorption.

Up to 30% of the energy of cells is used to pump calcium out of the cells.

A healthy cell has high magnesium and low calcium levels. The higher the calcium level and the lower the magnesium level in the extra-cellular fluid, the harder is it for cells to pump the calcium out. The result is that the mitochondria gradually calcify and energy production decreases with low magnesium levels. Our biochemical age could theoretically be determined by the ratio of magnesium to calcium within our cells.

Without sufficient magnesium, calcium can collect in the soft tissues and cause arthritis. In arthritics calcium is poorly absorbed into their blood and bones. Some researchers estimate that the American ratio of calcium to magnesium is actually approaching 6:1, while the recommendation for healthy living is actually 2:1. But even 2 parts of calcium to 1 part of magnesium is probably too high, since current research on the Paleolithic or caveman diets show that the ratio of their diet was 1:1. [1]

Medical authorities claim that the widespread incidence of osteoporosis and tooth decay in western countries can be prevented with a high calcium intake. However, Asian and African populations with a low intake (about 300 mg) of calcium daily have very little osteoporosis. Bantu women with an intake of 200 to 300 mg of calcium daily have the lowest incidence of osteoporosis in the world. [2] In western countries with a high intake of dairy products, the average calcium intake is about 1,000 mg. With a low magnesium intake, calcium moves out of the bones to increase tissue levels, while a high magnesium intake causes calcium to move from the tissues into the bones. Thus high magnesium levels leads to bone mineralization.

Dr. Karen Kubena, associate professor of nutrition at Texas A & M University indicates that even if you monitor your magnesium level closely, you’re still at risk for migraines if your calcium level is not balanced. It seems that higher than normal blood levels of calcium cause the body to excrete the excess calcium, which in turn triggers a loss of magnesium. “Let’s say you have just enough magnesium and too much calcium in your blood. If calcium is excreted, the magnesium goes with it. All of a sudden, you could be low in magnesium,” says Dr. Kubena. [3]

If calcium is not taken with enough magnesium it will cause more harm than good. The unabsorbed calcium can lodge anywhere in the body and provoke practically any disease. For instances, if it lodges in your bones and joints, it leads to some forms of arthritis; if it lodges in your heart, it leads to arterial lesions; if it lodges in your lungs it provokes respiratory problems, and more.

Despite the crucial relationship between calcium and magnesium, a recently published study announced that most U.S. children don’t get enough calcium in their diets, and pediatricians should intervene to help remedy the problem. These guidelines were issued February 2006 by the American Academy of Pediatrics. [4] The proportion of children who receive the recommended amounts of calcium declines dramatically after the second year of life, reaching a nadir during adolescence, said Dr. Nancy F. Krebs, of the University of Colorado in Denver, head of the academy committee that wrote the guidelines.

Adolescent girls are faring the worst, Dr. Krebs and colleagues reported. Only about 10% of girls ages 12 to 19 are getting the recommended amount of calcium. For boys, the figure is about 30%, according to the guidelines. Not a word is mentioned about magnesium as the committee goes on to recommend increasing calcium intake through the use of fortified foods and calcium supplements. Is a medical crime being committed when these pediatricians fail to address the crucial relationship between magnesium and calcium? Our affirmative answer is sustained when reviewing the materials presented below.

According to the University of Florida Shands Cancer Center a high level of calcium in the blood, called hypercalcemia, [5] may become a medical emergency. [6] This disorder is most commonly caused by cancer or parathyroid disease but underneath the primary etiology is probably magnesium deficiency. Hypercalcemia is commonly attributed to either the cancer treatment or the cancer itself and may make it difficult for doctors to detect hypercalcemia when it first occurs. This disorder can be severe and difficult to manage especially because doctors have not a clue about the underlying relationship between excess calcium and low levels of magnesium. Severe hypercalcemia is a medical emergency that can be avoided if magnesium levels are brought up to normal.

Calcium competes with zinc, manganese, magnesium, copper and iron for absorption in the intestine and a high intake of one can reduce absorption of the others.
Osteoporosis prevention with Magnesium

Because of the totally distorted way medical science relates to magnesium, the medical profession makes mistakes with calcium recommendations. It’s still common to hear the assumption about calcium’s ability to help prevent osteoporosis (weakening of the bones usually associated with aging). The fact is that increasing magnesium intake increases bones density[7] in the elderly and reduces the risk of osteoporosis. “Higher Magnesium intake through diet and supplements was positively associated with total-body bone mineral density (BMD) [8] in older white men and women. For every 100 mg per day increase in Mg, there was an approximate 2% increase in whole-body BMD,” said Dr. Kathryn Ryder.

Magnesium is essential for proper calcium absorption and is an important mineral in the bone matrix.

“Bones average about 1% phosphate of magnesium and. teeth about 1% phosphate of magnesium. Elephant tusks contain 2% of phosphate of magnesium and billiard balls made from these are almost indestructible. The teeth of carnivorous animals contain nearly 5% phosphate of magnesium and thus they are able to crush and grind the bones of their prey without difficulty,” wrote Otto Carque (1933) in Vital Facts About Foods.

Some people, like a spokesperson for the UK-based charity, the National Osteoporosis Society, continue to think “magnesium deficiency is, in fact, very rare in humans.” So they cannot get it through their heads that magnesium deficiency, not calcium deficiency, plays a key role in osteoporosis. It is no surprise when we find more studies suggesting that high Ca intake had no preventive effect on the alteration of bone metabolism in magnesium-deficient rats, [9] and that not only severe but also moderate dietary restriction of magnesium results in qualitative changes in bones in rats. [10] The results from some of these studies may be surprising to some. While we have no reason to question the importance of calcium in bone strength, we have plenty of reason to doubt the value of consuming large amounts of calcium as currently recommended for adults and young people alike. [11]

One of the most important aspects of the disease osteoporosis has been almost totally overlooked. That aspect is the role played by magnesium.– Dr. Lewis B. Barnett

While most sources understand that calcium is important in the growth and development of children, little attention is paid to the role of magnesium or magnesium deficiency or the need to maintain the intricate balances of each – and other nutrients as well. Back in the 1950s, Dr. Barnett examined the bone content of healthy people and compared it with the content of people suffering from severe osteoporosis. He found there was little difference among the calcium, phosphorus, and fluoride content of the bones of the individuals. The magnesium content in the bones of the healthy people, however, was 1.26%. That of the osteoporosis victims was .62% or slightly less than half. Many years ago Dr. Barnett conducted tests on 5,000 people and found about 60% of them deficient in magnesium. Today we find the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) placing that number officially at 68%. How is it that so many in the medical profession can ignore this clinical reality and go on pretending that magnesium deficiency in the general population is rare?

Magnesium status is important for regulation of calcium balance through parathyroid hormone-mediated reactions. [12]
Magnesium or Calcium Deficiency ?

The current focus on increased need for calcium in a magnesium-deficient population can easily push those already receiving adequate amounts of calcium in their daily diets over the edge into high levels, thus causing depletion of magnesium and related health problems. The American Diabetes Association in their 2006 guidelines for diabetes and pre-diabetes join the Pediatricians, and do not recommend that magnesium is considered in any significant way when making treatment and nutritional recommendations. This is in the face of overwhelming evidence over the years that magnesium is even more deficient in diabetics and dietary recommendations are not combating the issue. This medical review is important exactly because large segments of the medical establishment are choosing ignorance in relationship to magnesium and calcium, thus misleading the public and letting them be ravaged by iatrogenic disease, coincidentally a situation where billions of dollars are made.

Despite the fact that serum levels of magnesium are not the best indicator of adequate magnesium levels, some studies have shown that when magnesium deficiency was induced in humans, the earliest sign was decreased serum magnesium levels (hypomagnesemia). Over time serum calcium levels also began to decrease (hypocalcemia) despite adequate dietary calcium and increased parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion. Usually increased PTH secretion quickly results in the mobilization of calcium from bone and normalization of blood calcium levels. As the magnesium depletion progressed, PTH secretion diminished to low levels. Along with hypomagnesemia, signs of severe magnesium deficiency included hypocalcemia, low serum potassium levels (hypokalemia), retention of sodium, low circulating levels of PTH, neurological and muscular symptoms (tremor, muscle spasms, tetany), loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, and personality changes. [13] Hypercalcemia can cause magnesium deficiency and wasting. [14]

It is medical wisdom that tells us that magnesium is actually the key to the body’s proper assimilation and use of calcium, as well as other important nutrients. If we consume too much calcium, without sufficient magnesium, the excess calcium is not utilized correctly and may actually become toxic, causing painful conditions in the body. Hypocalcemia is a prominent manifestation of magnesium deficiency in humans.[15] Even a mild degree of magnesium depletion significantly decreases the serum calcium concentration.[16]

The adverse effects of excessive calcium intake may include high blood calcium levels, kidney stone formation and kidney complications. [17] Elevated calcium levels are also associated with arthritic/joint and vascular degeneration, calcification of soft tissue, hypertension and stroke, and increase in VLDL triglycerides, gastrointestinal disturbances, mood and depressive disorders, chronic fatigue, and general mineral imbalances including magnesium, zinc, iron and phosphorus. High calcium levels interfere with Vitamin D and subsequently inhibit the vitamin’s cancer protective effect unless extra amounts of Vitamin D are supplemented. [18]

William R. Quesnell, author of Minerals: The Essential Link to Health, said, “Most people have come to believe nutrition is divisible, and that a single substance will maintain vibrant health. The touting of calcium for the degenerative disease osteoporosis provides an excellent example. Every day the media, acting as proxy for the milk lobby, sells calcium as a magic bullet. Has it worked? It has definitely worked for milk sales; however, for American health it has been a disaster. When you load up your system with excess calcium, you shut down magnesium’s ability to activate thyrocalcitonin, a hormone that under normal circumstances would send calcium to your bones.”

When it comes to magnesium and calcium neither can be divided from the other. One is not divisible from the other in terms of overall effect. They are paired minerals yet it is magnesium that holds the overall key for their paired function. In truth magnesium holds the key to life. It is, as the Chinese say, the most beautiful of all metals. It is a nutritional element that can and is used as a medicine to great effect by all who know of its beauty and power.

"Yesterday I was forced yet again to visit my dentist to treat a tooth which has suffered 50 years of abuse ! The cavity was too far gone I was told and so it was necessary to kill the nerve and tomorrow I will be back to have it filled ! But why are my teeth in such bad shape when I was told as a child that Flouride in my toothpaste and also added to my water would offer me protection against tooth decay ? I remember running home from school, all excited to my mother, with my "gift" of a free tube of toothpaste named " Signal " ! It had bright colours and its design for the time was pretty revolutionary ! It had the words " new Formula with added Flouride protection ! " on the side ! Well I can say after 50 years of using this "health breakthrough" that it has not worked at all and today my teeth front and back are in bad shape !

How can this be as I have used this stuff for most of my life ?? Well it seems that far from helping my teeth the flouride is actually a poison and causes huge damage to the enamel and gums alike ! Indeed Sodium Flouride the active ingredient in commercial toothpastes was used extensively to kill rats and cockroaches at the beginning of the last century ! So how indeed did this known and prescribed poison for infested homes find its way into toothpaste and pour drinking water ? Fed to children and adults alike since 1961 through clever and misleading advertisements and government campaigns that gave out this " new formula " toothpaste the " thumbs up " in schools during the seventies ?"

Fluoride is a cause of magnesium deficiency. In our body, the negatively charged fluoride binds with positively charged magnesium, which causes magnesium deficiency.
Ironically fluoride deficiency is also bad for our health...

Fluoride can be fatal: for a 2-year-old 60 mg and for a 9-year-old 120 mg could kill.
A tube of commercial toothpaste contains about 143 mg fluoride: https://drcarolyndean.com/2013/05/fl...lls-magnesium/

An estimated 80% of Americans are magnesium deficient.
Prescription drugs can also deplete your body of magnesium.
Early signs of magnesium deficiency include loss of appetite, headache, nausea, fatigue, and weakness.
Magnesium deficiency can cause amongst others: osteoporosis, heart attacks and diabetes.

Over the past 30 years, women have been told to take supplemental calcium to avoid osteoporosis, and calcium has been added to food. Osteoporosis rates have continued to climb.

You can’t simply add magnesium to your diet to solve problems, because when you take any of the following you need to take all the others into consideration as well: magnesium, calcium, vitamin D3, and vitamin K2.
If you're K2 or magnesium deficient, adding calcium will cause more problems than it solves. Taking mega doses of vitamin D supplements without sufficient amounts of K2 and magnesium can lead to vitamin D toxicity and magnesium deficiency symptoms.

If you have too much calcium and not enough magnesium, your muscles will tend to go into spasm. This could cause a heart attack: https://articles.mercola.com/sites/a...-benefits.aspx


A “scientific” report that was published in September 2017 shows that higher prenatal fluoride exposure was associated with lower scores on IQ tests in children from age 4 to 12.
In Mexico, where this study was conducted, fluoride isn’t added to water, but to table salt instead.
The US ADA concluded that:
Quote:
the findings are not applicable to the U.S. The ADA continues to endorse fluoridation of public water as the most effective public health measure to prevent tooth decay.
In an earlier study it was found that children, surviving in areas where the population get fluoridated water, are more often sentenced to ADHD: https://www.activistpost.com/2017/09...-exposure.html

Here’s the full September report – M. Bashash et al “Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Cognitive Outcomes in Children at 4 and 6–12 Years of Age in Mexico (2017): https://ehp.niehs.nih.gov/ehp655/
(archived here: http://archive.is/Ue2SU)

A total of 299 mother–child pairs had data on either GCI (at 4 years old) or IQ (at 6 years or older), and 199 mother–child pairs had data on both GCI and IQ.
At age 4 year, neurocognitive outcomes (GCI) were measured using the McCarthy Scales of Children’s Abilities (MSCA).
For children 6–12 year old, the Wechsler Abbreviated Scale of Intelligence (WASI) was administered (IQ).
The children’s IQ wasn’t only compared to the prenatal fluoride exposure, but was also corrected for lead exposure, maternal IQ and the quality of the children’s individual home environments.

Figure 2, shows the (adjusted) correlation between urinary fluoride level (MUF) and General Cognitive Index (GCI) scores in children at age 4. You can see that averagely the children score lower with higher prenatal fluoride exposure.


Figure 2, shows the (adjusted) correlation between urinary fluoride level (MUF) and IQ at age 6–12. It looks like only fluoride levels higher than 1 mg/l prenatal are associated with a lower IQ.

Giving a magnesium deficient population added calcium - is poisoning us...
This again proves that our medical industry is worse than quackery, as this is done intentionally.

Teeth are alive, and it seems illogical that a toxic (like fluoride) would preserve them. Maybe the effect of fluoride is similar to a toxic like chloride in swimming pools, which keeps it looking clean and fresh…
It seems probable that fluoride on the long-term damages our teeth, but I haven’t been able to find an independent study; all (manipulated) studies confirm that fluoride is very good for teeth....
Ingesting fluoride for your teeth is ridiculous…
Another effect of fluoride is that it destroys enzymes and bacteria. This effect is probably also bad for your teeth.

It is known that osteoporosis (which is caused by ingesting fluoride) in turn causes teeth loss. So even if the fluoride prevents cavities, good teeth could still be lost because of fluoride...

In the United States more than 53 million people either have osteoporosis or are at high risk due to low bone mass.
Several studies have found, that when the jawbone is weakened by osteoporosis, this increases loose teeth and tooth loss. Women with osteoporosis have a 3 times higher chance to experience tooth loss (than those without the disease).
Osteoporosis can also cause periodontitis, although the relationship with skeletal bone density is not clear. Research has shown that magnesium deficiency leads to periodontitis (see below)…
Periodontitis is a chronic infection that affects the gums and bones that support the teeth. Teeth may eventually become loose, fall out, or have to be removed: https://www.bones.nih.gov/health-inf...d-bone-disease

Magnesium can counter and reduce the toxic effects of fluoride.
Calcium and magnesium are important structural components of teeth and bone. Fluoride binds with magnesium and calcium – this is bad for our teeth…
In a “scientific” study, subjects from 40 to 80 years old, with the highest calcium–to–magnesium ratio suffered greater tooth loss than those with a lower calcium–to–magnesium ratio.

In 1941, Time Magazine published an article about the “perfect teeth” and low incidence of bone fracture among residents of Deaf Smith County, Texas.
The water in Deaf Smith County had a magnesium content twice as high as that in Dallas County (where bone fracture and tooth decay were common). The water in Deaf Smith County also contained relatively much calcium and “natural” fluoride...
Adverse effects of fluoride, like weakening of bones and brown stains and tooth pitting on teeth, were also absent in Deaf Smith County:
Quote:
Teeth just plain don't decay in Deaf Smith County, on the sandy plains of the Texas panhandle. (Elsewhere in the U.S. 95 out of 100 have dental caries.) This remarkable fact was reported last week to the Houston meeting of the American Dental Association by Dr. Edward Taylor, chief dentist of the Texas State Board of Health.
In 1961, Nature reported about a significant reduction in dental caries in 200 patients that were given an alkaline phosphate (= magnesium) for 3 years. Scientists in New Zealand discovered that magnesium was the beneficial factor.
They concluded that:
Quote:
an important role can possibly be assigned to magnesium [phosphate] in the stabilization of chemical, physical and electrokinetic states of the surface enamel calcium.
In other words, calcium can only have a positive impact after it is stabilised, for example by magnesium.

Studies on guinea pigs and rats have confirmed the importance of magnesium:
Quote:
When guinea pigs are fed a diet deficient in magnesium they grow slowly and, if they survive for a few months, they develop deposits of calcium phosphate in such organs as the kidneys, muscles, liver, stomach, and heart.
(…)
A high calcium level in the diet increases the magnesium requirement of guinea pigs just as has been observed by others who have studied the magnesium requirement of the rat.
When researchers at Loma Linda University in California substituted whole wheat with white flour in the food for rats, they found that more caries developed. Whole wheat flour contains 113 mg of magnesium per 100 grams, but white flour has only 25 mg.
There were 3.64 carious lesions per rat on the white flour diet, which also contained the high calcium foods cottage cheese and milk.
On the same diet, but with high magnesium whole wheat flour, there were only 1.16 carious lesions.

Lewis B. Barnett in September 1966 stated that supplementing our diet with magnesium would be a much better method than fluoride for tooth decay prevention.

Here’s the “short” story: http://integratedsupplements.typepad...al-health.html
Here’s the long version (which is part of a book on magnesium): http://www.mgwater.com/rod10.shtml

Unhappy ruining kids teeth

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-42662425
Quote:
There were 42,911 operations in 2016-17 - up from 40,800 the previous year and 36,833 in 2012-13, NHS figures show.

Dental surgeon Claire Stevens, who works in a hospital in north-west England, said most of her patients were aged five to nine, but it was not uncommon to remove all 20 baby teeth from a two-year-old because of decay.
She said she has also extracted a 14-year-old's permanent teeth due to fizzy drinks. They then needed false teeth.
Has consumption of sugary sweets and fizzy drinks (by kids) really gone up? Have these products really got any worse over the last decade?

Seems to me there's a conflict of interest between genuine oral health and expensive Orthodontics and Cosmetic Dentistry.
