Dr. Ben Weitz interviews Dr. Paul Connett, a former chemistry and toxicology professor, on the possible dangers of flouride toxicity. To begin with, there is no need in the human body for flouride and there is no disease associated with a lack of flouride. Second, biochemists have known for a long time that flouride is very toxic and at high dosages it can kill you. Flouride can interfere with enzymes, hydrogen bonds, and it combines with metal ions like calcium and magnesium, preventing them from the useful functions they have in the body. And these effects occur at low levels.
And then there are the health effects of flouride, including dental flourosis, which is a discoloration of the enamel of the teeth, and this occurs in over 50% of children in the US. And then we have potential damage to the brain, bones, thyroid, and the rest of the endocrine system, esp. in children. Over 50 studies document that levels of flouride that can easily occur in our children between water fluoridation, fluoride in toothpaste and mouthwash, and other sources of flouride, leads to lowering IQ by approximately 5 points! What an irrational way to deliver a potentially toxic drug to our population, given that there is no way to control the dosage. And we are giving a medication to people without their consent!
Dr. Connett has written many papers and several books, including his most recent, The Zero Waste Solution https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-zero-waste-solution-paul-connett-phd/1115235807 and The Case Against Flouride https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-case-against-fluoride-paul-connett/1021577574?ean=9781603582872 Here is Dr. Connett’s website: http://www.americanhealthstudies.org/index.html While he is retired, Dr. Connett is available to speak at conferences.
