Fluoridated drugs may be causing more damage than good in the long run. Fluoride is a known toxin that negatively impacts the brain, the heart and has caused death in test animals.
“Including fluorine atoms in medicines can have a variety of dramatic effects on the molecules’ properties, perhaps making them more selective, increasing their efficacy, or making them easier to administer. So it is no great surprise that around a fifth of all drugs on the market today contain at least one fluorine substituent,” says Joel Swinson, senior research chemist for Halocarbon Products Corporation.
He goes on to say fluoride and fluoride derivatives, “Provide an extremely useful way of making a molecule more easily delivered to the active site in the body.”
The Merck Manual for Pet Health says, “Sodium fluoride at a dosage of 5 to 10 milligrams per kilogram can be fatal, and toxic effects can occur at less than 1 milligram per kilogram. Fluoride is absorbed quickly (most within 90 minutes). The stomach and intestines become inflamed, and the heart beats rapidly and irregularly. Nervous signs may also be seen, followed by collapse and death within a few hours of fluoride ingestion.”
Fluoride accumulates in the body and is considered more toxic than lead but not quite as toxic as arsenic. It is highly damaging to the liver and the kidneys. Click here for natural liver support.
“Fluoride in drinking water binds with magnesium, creating a nearly insoluble mineral compound that ends up deposited in the bones, where its brittleness increases the risk of fractures,” says the Weston Price Foundation. Meanwhile 90% of Americans are showing to be deficient in magnesium.
A test study was performed in India on a group of albino mice where the mice were administered fluoride and aluminum, separately and together. The results showed the rats suffered, “Significantly impaired production of free radical scavengers, superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase, glutathione, and total ascorbic acid, thereby increasing hepatic lipid peroxidation and thus making the tissue more susceptible to injury.” The liver damage and kidney damage was remarkable.
The FDA has not approved the use of fluoride in prescription or over-the-counter drugs, yet these drugs all contain fluoride. (source), (source), (source), (source).
- Advair Diskus
- Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics such as Cipro, Levaquin, Penetrex, Tequin, Factive, Raxar, Maxaquin, Avelox, Noroxin, Floxin, Zagam, Omniflox and Trovan.
Chemist Joel Swinson says, “The distinctive effects that fluorine substituents have on the properties of active pharmaceutical ingredients mean they will remain popular with the drug discovery chemist.”
