    From the same WHO site that the apparent graph was taken “The level of dental caries (measured as the mean number of Decayed, Missing or Filled teeth) falls from seven at a fluoride concentration of 0.1 mg l–1 to around 3.5 at a fluoride concentration of 1.0 mg l–1. As fluoride concentration increased further (up to 2.6 mg l–1) dental decay continues to fall, but only slightly (Dean, 1942; USPHS, 1991). Conversely, dental fluorosis increases as fluoride concentration increases. At a fluoride concentration of 1 mg l–1 about 20 per cent of children have evidence of dental fluorosis but this fluorosis is of a mild degree of severity and would not be cosmetically obvious to the children or their parents (Dean, 1942)”


    There is also fluoride in all natural food products (even organic) so if you believe this documentary please don’t continue eating (or drinking) ANYTHING as you may die of fluoride exposure.
    And please go tell everybody that “The Nazis are putting fluoride in our drinking water to control our minds and make us all stupid”

      That is absolutely correct. This anti fluoride propaganda is simply not supported by the evidence. I don’t know why people keep it up.

      Fluoride does occur naturally in nearly everything we consume. In fact it was originally discovered in the drinking water of Austin, Texas. A dentist there noticed that while the city’s inhabitants had slightly more yellow teeth than usual they were far less prone to tooth decay. After years of research and testing he discovered it was due to the natural fluoride in the water supply.

      It is now added in much smaller doses than occurred naturally, so people’s teeth don’t discolour, yet it still retains its benefits.

      The evidence against fluoride is anecdotal and hasn’t stood up to scrutiny. It’s good to be skeptical but this kind of thing is the wrong kind skepticism. Do your research, people.

    Wow…my city stopped putting fluoride in the water over a year ago. Go Canadian city just outside of Toronto!

      That’s actually a terrible shame. Your city bowed to popular pseudo-scientific nonsense and now your dental health is at risk.

    I think this documentary is laying it on pretty thick, and that’s actually harmful to the argument. They should have focused on the fact that fluoride doesn’t promote dental health and left the “mind control” part out, because that actually sounds completely paranoid.

    This said, there is absolutely no addition of fluoride in water where I live, and parents are very strongly advised to use special fluoride-free toothpaste for their children, and I’ve never had a single dental problem in my life.

    He asks them about sodium fluoride, a compound with different properties to fluoride or sodium themselves. It’s like comparing ammonia (which is poisonous, formula NH3+) to Hydrogen or Nitrogen by themselves and saying that because ammonia is poisonous therefore nitrogen is poisonous too, when nitrogen makes up over 70% of the air we breathe. These guys are idiots trying to convert the public to stupid pseudo science that arises because people have nothing better to do.

    If anyone thinks that DOW is innocent, then the fluoride is clearly doing it’s job on your little brain.

    Just a little bit of Wiki for you. In 2010, a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study determined that “40.7% of adolescents aged 12–15 had dental fluorosis [in 1999–2004]”.[87] In response, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services together with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are proposing[88] to reduce the recommended level of fluoride in drinking water to the lowest end of the current range, 0.7 milligrams per liter of water (mg/L), from the previous recommended maximum of 1.2 mg/L.[89] This could effectively terminate municipal water fluoridation in areas where fluoride levels from mineral deposits and industrial pollution exceed the new recommendation.

    Regardless of which side of the fence you sit on with information like this the truth is that we now know that we can no longer trust governments or so called ‘experts’ in anything. We don’t need any further proof that governments lie to us, we also don’t need proof that major corporations are only interested in increasing profit and reducing loss.
    So, what’s the answer and who do we now believe? The only belief that you can trust is your own, you have all the answers yourself, you just need to learn how to start listening to your own guidance. That’s why all these questions are now being asked and coming to the surface, they’re telling you that ultimatley no one has the answer except you! The message clearly is that you can’t trust anyone, not even people that produce documentaries like this, you can only trust yourself so stop analyzing, understand the main message and REGAIN CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE!

    GREAT DOCUMENTARY and THANK YOU for posting TRUTH. The man who originally was paid (by the aluminum manufacturing industry) to convince the medical establishment that fluoride was good for teeth was the same man who created the field of propaganda — Edward Bernays. Bernays was the double nephew of Sigmund Freud. Both men belonged to the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations, in London. Tavistock is the controversial institute known for using its psychoanalytical research on human beings for the benefit of (mostly communist-loving) governments and corporations, which continue to pay Tavistock for its highly effective propaganda strategies. Central bank money helped get Tavistock off the ground, almost 100 years ago. The methods that Bernays perfected were used by the Nazis in their propaganda campaign that promoted the mass murder of 6 million people. Yes, fluoridated water is, and should be, quite controversial. Know your history, people.
