LUNATICS." --Voltaire (Memnon the Philosopher).

Controversial fluoride is one of the basic ingredients in both PROZAC
(FLUoxetene Hydrochloride) and Sarin nerve gas (Isopropyl-Methyl-Phosphoryl

Sodium fluoride, a hazardous-waste by-product from the manufacture of
aluminum, is a common ingredient in rat and cockroach poisons, anesthetics,
hypnotics, psychiatric drugs, and military nerve gas. It`s historically
been quite expensive to properly dispose of, until some aluminum industries
with an overabundance of the stuff sold the public on the terrifically
insane but highly profitable idea of buying it at a 20,000% markup,
injecting it into our water supplies, and then DRINKING it.

Yes, a 20,000% markup: Fluoride-- intended only for human consumption by
people under 14 years of age--is injected into our drinking water supply at
approx. 1 part-per-million (ppm), but since we only drink 1/2 of one
percent of the total water supply, the rest literally goes down the drain
as a free hazardous-waste disposal for the chemical industry, where we PAY
them so that we can flush their expensive hazardous waste down our toilets.
How many salesmen dream of such a deal? (Follow the money.)

Independent scientific evidence repeatedly showing up over the past 50
years reveals that fluoride allegedly shortens our life span, promotes
cancer and various mental disturbances, accelerates osteoporosis and broken
hips in old folks, and makes us stupid, docile, and subservient, all in one
package. There are reports of aluminum in the brain possibly being a
causative factor in Alzheimer`s Disease, and evidence points towards
fluoride`s strong affinity for aluminum and also its ability to "trick" the
blood-brain barrier by looking like the hydrogen ion, and thus allowing
chemical access to brain tissue.

Scientists who have attempted to blow the whistle on this mega-bucks PR
ploy have consistently been given a very unscientific Black-PR treatment,
and thus their valid points disputing the current vested interests never
arrive in the press. Follow the money to find the control. In 1952 the
slick PR campaign which ramrodded the concept of fluoridation through via
our Public Health departments and various dental organizations was likened
to a highly-emotional "beer-salesman`s convention" instead of the objective
scientific experiment which it should properly have been. It`s continued in
that vein right up to present time. To illustrate the emotional vs. the
scientific nature of this issue, just look at the response given by people
(perhaps yourself included?) when the subject of fluoridation comes up. Ask
yourself, "Is this response EMOTIONAL BLUSTER, or is it UNBIASED AND
OPENLY- INTERESTED OBJECTIVITY?" There is a tremendous amount of emotional,
highly unscientific know-it-all !
attached to fluoridation. Many truly independent (unattached to any
vested-interest) scientists who`ve spent a large portion of their lives
studying and working with this subject have been subjected to a surprising
amount of uncalled-for and unfair character assassination from strong
vested- interest groups who profit from the public`s ignorance as well as
from their illnesses. (Follow the money.)

Do you have diabetes or kidney disease? There are reportedly more than 11
million Americans with diabetes. Since many diabetics drink more liquids
than other people, then according to the Physicians Desk Reference these 11
million Americans probably shouldn`t drink fluoridated water, because in
doing so, they`ll receive an excessive dose of fluoride.

Kidney disease, by definition, lowers the efficiency of the kidneys, which
is your main route of fluoride elimination. --So those people with kidney
disease also shouldn`t drink fluoridated water. Cases are on record
(Annapolis, Maryland, 1979) where kidney patients on dialysis machines
died, due to a fluoride overdose in the city water supply. Let`s begin at
the beginning:

The first occurrence of fluoridated drinking water on Earth was found in
Germany`s Nazi prison camps. The Gestapo had little concern about
fluoride`s supposed effect on children`s teeth; their alleged reason for
mass-medicating water with sodium fluoride was to sterilize humans and
force the people in their concentration camps into calm submission. (Ref.
book: "The Crime and Punishment of I.G. Farben" by Joseph Borkin.)

The following letter was received by the Lee Foundation for Nutritional
Research, Milwaukee Wisconsin, on 2 October 1954, from Mr. Charles Perkins,
a chemist:

"I have your letter of September 29 asking for further documentation
regarding a statement made in my book, The Truth About Water Fluoridation,
to the effect that the idea of water fluoridation was brought to England
from Russia by the Russian Communist Kreminoff. "In the 1930`s, Hitler and
the German Nazi`s envisioned a world to be dominated and controlled by a
Nazi philosophy of pan-Germanism. The German chemists worked out a very
ingenious and far-reaching plan of mass-control which was submitted to and
adopted by the German General Staff. This plan was to control the
population in any given area through mass medication of drinking water
supplies. By this method they could control the population in whole areas,
reduce population by water medication that would produce sterility in
women, and so on. In this scheme of mass-control, sodium fluoride occupied
a prominent place. ...

"Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluoride will in time reduce
an individual`s power to resist domination, by slowly poisoning and
narcotizing a certain area of the brain, thus making him submissive to the
will of those who wish to govern him. [A convenient light lobotomy]

"The real reason behind water fluoridation is not to benefit children`s
teeth. If this were the real reason there are many ways in which it could
be done that are much easier, cheaper, and far more effective. The real
purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the resistance of the masses
to domination and control and loss of liberty.

"When the Nazis under Hitler decided to go into Poland, both the German
General Staff and the Russian General Staff exchanged scientific and
military ideas, plans, and personnel, and the scheme of mass control
through water medication was seized upon by the Russian Communists because
it fitted ideally into their plan to communize the world. ...

"I was told of this entire scheme by a German chemist who was an official
of the great IG Farben chemical industries and was also prominent in the
Nazi movement at the time. I say this with all the earnestness and
sincerity of a scientist who has spent nearly 20 years` research into the
chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology of fluorine--any person
who drinks artificially fluorinated water for a period of one year or more
will never again be the same person mentally or physically." CHARLES E.
PERKINS, Chemist, 2 October 1954.

Quoting Einstein`s nephew, Dr. E.H. Bronner (a chemist who had also been a
prisoner of war during WWII) in a letter printed in The Catholic Mirror,
Springfield, MA, January 1952:

"It appears that the citizens of Massachusetts are among the `next` on the
agenda of the water poisoners.

"There is a sinister network of subversive agents, Godless `intellectual`
parasites, working in our country today whose ramifications grow more
extensive, more successful and more alarming each new year and whose true
objective is to demoralize, paralyze and destroy our great Republic--from
within if they can, according to their plan--for their own possession. "The
tragic success they have already attained in their long siege to destroy
the moral fiber of American life is now one of their most potent footholds
towards their own ultimate victory over us.

"Fluoridation of our community water systems can well become their most
subtle weapon for our sure physical and mental deterioration. ...

"As a research chemist of established standing, I built within the past 22
years, 3 American chemical plants and licensed 6 of my 53 patents. Based on
my years of practical experience in the health-food and chemical field, let
me warn: fluoridation of drinking water is criminal insanity, sure national
suicide. Don`t do it.

"Even in small quantities, sodium fluoride is a deadly poison to which no
effective antidote has been found. Every exterminator knows that it is the
most efficient rat-killer. ... Sodium fluoride is entirely different from
organic calcium-fluoro-phosphate needed by our bodies and provided by
nature, in God`s great providence and love, to build and strengthen our
bones and our teeth. This organic calcium-fluoro-phosphate, derived from
proper foods, is an edible organic salt, insoluble in water and assimilable
by the human body, whereas the non-organic sodium fluoride used in
fluoridating water is instant poison to the body and fully water soluble.
The body refuses to assimilate it. "Careful, bonafide laboratory
experimentation by conscientious, patriotic research chemists, and actual
medical experience, have both revealed that instead of preserving or
promoting `dental health,` fluoridated drinking water destroys teeth,
before adulthood and after, by the destructive mottling and other
pathological conditions it actually causes in them, and also
creates many other very grave pathological conditions in the internal
organisms of bodies consuming it. How can it be called a "health" plan?
What`s behind it?

"That any so-called "doctors" would persuade a civilized nation to add
voluntarily a deadly poison to its drinking water systems is unbelievable.
It is the height of criminal

insanity. "No wonder Hitler and Stalin fully believed and agreed from 1939
to 1941 that, quoting from both Lenin`s Last Will and Hitler`s Mein Kampf:

"America we shall demoralize, divide, and destroy from within." ...

"Are our Civil Defense organizations and agencies awake to the perils of
water poisoning by fluoridation? Its use has been recorded in other
countries. Sodium fluoride water solutions are the cheapest and most
effective rat killers known to chemists: colorless, odorless, tasteless; no
antidote, no remedy, no hope: Instant and complete extermination of rats.

"Fluoridation of water systems can be slow national suicide, or quick
national liquidation. It is criminal insanity--treason!" Dr. E.H. Bronner,
Mfg. Research Chemist, Los Angeles.

Earliest available Russian fluoride evidence:

"I, Oliver Kenneth Goff, was a member of the Communist Party and the Young
Communist League, from May 2, 1936, to October 9, 1939. During this period
of time, I operated under the alias of John Keats with number 18-B-2. My
testimony before the Government is in Volume 9 of the Un-American
Activities Report for 1939.

"While a member of the Communist Party, I attended Communist training
schools in New York and Wisconsin ... and we were trained in the
revolutionary overthrow of the U.S. Government. "... We discussed quite
thoroughly the fluoridation of water supplies and how we were using it in
Russia as a tranquilizer in the prison camps. The leaders of our school
felt that if it could be induced into the American water supply, it would
bring about a spirit of lethargy in the nation, where it could keep the
general public docile during a steady encroachment of Communism. We also
discussed the fact that keeping a store of deadly fluoride near the water
reservoir would be advantageous during the time of the revolution, as it
would give us opportunity to dump this poison into the water supply and
either kill off the populace or threaten them with liquidation, so that
they would surrender to obtain fresh water.

supply is 'safe'." Ludwig Gross, M.D., former Chief of Veterans Administration

The Real Story on Arsenic in Your Water

The Real Story on Arsenic in Your Water

Neal Boortz
April 3, 2001

At first it sounded pretty damming: George W. Bush had 86'ed an
EPA regulation further limiting the amount of arsenic that could
legally be found in America's drinking water.

For people who don't bother to look beyond the sensational
headlines, this sounds mighty bad indeed! Everybody knows that
arsenic is poisonous! Everybody knows that you can die from
arsenic poisoning! Why, it's absolutely outrageous that President
Bush would do such a thing! He's a madman!

I purposely avoided conversation on this particular subject this week
until I could get a little more information.

OK, here goes. So everybody knows that arsenic is poison, right?
Fine. Do you also know that arsenic is found naturally in broccoli and
other vegetables? Do you know that most groundwater already
contains arsenic? Did you know that at low levels arsenic is virtually
harmless to the human body?

Here's what happened. The National Academy of Sciences issues a
report saying that there is too much arsenic in America's water
supply. The EPA follows suit with a new regulation lowering the
permissible arsenic in our water supply form 50ppb (parts per
billion) to 10ppb.

Fine. Now, what would this cost, and how many lives would it save?

Cost? The water industry says it would cost about $6 billion in
immediate capital outlays and about $600 million a year from then

That cost should be no factor, though, if huge numbers of lives could
be saved. So, what's the toll in saved souls? The EPA says that by
reducing the arsenic level in water we're going to statistically save
about 28 lives per year.

Whenever you talk about saving lives through regulation, you ought
to pay a little attention to just how much each one of those saved
lives would cost. We could, for instance, save the lives of a lot of
airline passengers if each passenger could be encased in an
escape pod with automatic fire suppression systems and a decent
parachute in case of a disaster. The cost, though, would be
absolutely prohibitive. The EPA realizes this and has suggested a
figure of "cost per statistical life saved" for its regulations. That
figure is around $4 million.

So, what would the cost-per-life-saved be of these new EPA arsenic
regulations? OK, get your official Clark Howard calculator out. The
new arsenic regs would save about 28 lives per year – at a cost of
$65 million per life. That's over 16 times the EPA's own suggest
threshold limit!

So, now that you've learned a bit more, does Bush's rejection of the
new EPA standards sound so horrible?

So why does this work so well? How can Democrats, union goons
and mental midgets like Barbra Streisand succeed so wildly in
demonizing George W. for a decision that actually makes sense?
Easy, because the decision doesn't make sense UNTIL the facts
are known. Facts – poison to the left and the liberal mental process.

Rioting College Students

So Arizona lost. Big deal. But once again we were treated to video
of rioting students overturning cars and setting fires.

Just once I would like to read about strong disciplinary action being
taken by a college or university after an event like this. Get the video,
then identify every single person you can in that video. If you had
your hands on that car when it was turned over – you're out. Pack
your stuff. Your education at this university is over. Period. No
questions. If your face is shown around that fire – so long! Time to
apply to another institute of higher education.

Yeah – like we're going to get that type of a response from today's
college and university administrators.

Wouldn't It Be Nice if This Spread!

Tax Revolt: Dozens of small-business owners have stopped
withholding taxes from their employees and have challenged the IRS
to prove them wrong. "60 Minutes II" reports on a tax revolt that's a
direct challenge to the way our tax system runs.

Well, Texas congressman Ron Paul has introduced a bill that, sadly,
doesn't have a snowball's chance. He wants to end tax withholding.

Class Warfare Rages On

Let's take a quick look at the way the AFL-CIO participates in and
encourages the politics of envy and class warfare in America.

Here's a link to a page on the AFL-CIO Web site:

It's a letter you can automatically send to your favorite politician or
journalist. Throughout this letter you can see one of the elements of
this class warfare agenda. The left and the AFL-CIO are working to
differentiate between "the rich" and "working people." The goal here
is to promote the idea that wealthy people don't actually work for
their money. And since they don't work for their money, it's no real
big deal if their money is taken away from them and given to people
who actually DO work!

If you want a good rundown on the entire leftist-socialist movement
in the United States, there is no better place to start than
http://www.aflcio.org/home.htm .

Before we move on, here's a quote from AFL-CIO president John J.
Sweeney about Bush's tax cut idea:

"My fear is that he is so determined to reward his corporate and
ideological backers that he will ignore the needs of the vast majority
of American people who make daily decisions between pork chops
and peanut butter – as he pays attention only to those who must
decide between a $190 and a $125 bottle of Bordeaux."

Nice, huh? We have two classes of people in this country. Those
who work and have to decide between pork chops and peanut
butter; and those who are rich and who's only problem is which wine
to drink with their gourmet dinner.

Hey, Sweeney. The next time one of your precious union members
needs a job, tell him to go apply for work to someone trying to
decide between pork chops and peanut butter.

They're Not Interested in Educating Your Kid

If you needed further proof that government schools don't give a rat's
derriere when it comes to educating your child, here it is.

Thomas Edison Elementary School in San Francisco used to be the
kind of school that "parents fought to get out of," according to the
San Francisco Chronicle. I say "used to be" because in 1998, a
company called Edison Schools came in, privatized it and renamed
it the Edison Charter Academy. The New York Times says that
since Edison took over the school, the proportion of students
scoring in the upper half on national math and reading tests has
doubled. And the number of students scoring in the lowest ranks has
been cut by one-third.

That's great, right? Kids at Edison Charter Academy are learning,
and their test scores show it. The kids get their future handed back
to them and San Francisco looks good for allowing Edison Schools
to take charge. It's a win-win situation, right?

Not if you're a member of the San Francisco Board of Education. A
recent investigation alleges Edison discriminates against black
students, sends special education students to other campuses, and
hasn't provided the school district with records that track the public
money the school uses. At a school board meeting last Tuesday, the
board voted 6-1 to give Edison Schools 90 days to fix these
"problems." If the board still finds problems, the school will lose its
charter and revert to government control.

Parents of children at the Edison Charter Academy attended last
week's meeting and begged the board not to revoke Edison's
contract. More than 80 percent of the academy's parents have
signed a petition asking the city to keep Edison Schools.

And opponents of Edison Schools have failed to provide any
concrete evidence that Edison has forced students out to increase
test scores.

Oh, and let's not forget that this is the same school district whose
loose finances led them to spend $30 million in voter-approved
construction funding for other things, like salaries. Audits show that
over the past eight years, the district has routinely spent money it
didn't have. And this week, the district passed up a $50 million
federal technology grant because it couldn't even pony up the 17
cents per federal dollar.

The bottom line is that a private company beat government
educators at their own game, and the school board doesn't like it
one bit. So they're going to do their best to sack Edison Schools
and protect their monopoly on San Francisco's children.

Speaking of Privatizing Schools ...

It wasn't a very good week for Edison Schools.

The company also wanted to privatize the five worst-performing
schools in Brooklyn, the Bronx and Manhattan – but was stopped
cold. But it's not the school administrators who sent Edison down to
defeat, it's the apathetic, government-addicted parents that nixed
this proposal.

Only 2,267 of nearly 5,000 eligible parents cast votes last week.
And Edison Schools required "yes" votes from a majority of all
eligible parents at each school. Mayor Rudy Giuliani wants the
school board to allow Edison to take over the 20 worst schools –
with or without parental approval.

Kenneth Wilson is the father of a kindergartner and a first-grader at
one of these dreadful government schools: Community School 66 in
the Bronx. On Thursday he said, "We hate Edison because they're
going to come in here as a business. Each child is a dollar sign."
Wow! A true candidate for Parent of the Year.

Sorry ... how is that different from a government-run school? And is it
somehow diabolical for a for-profit company to want to operate as a
business? Is there something about a company that makes it less
qualified than the do-nothing government educators who currently
run the show?

If Kenneth Wilson and the other parents put that much stock in the
ability of the government regime to teach their kids how to read and
write, they're deluding themselves.

Every parent who sends their kid to a government school should sit
down and try to think of a single thing the government does well –
besides tyrannize freedom-loving individuals.

Our benevolent imperial federal government can't do anything right.
So why should you think they're qualified to educate your child?

Be Careful How You Ridicule Dubya

ABC News needs better copy editors.

On last Thursday's "World News Tonight," White House reporter
(and Clinton flack) Terry Moran ridiculed George W. Bush for using
the term "energy crisis." That's because, as Moran said, "there are
no gas lines and the price of crude oil is actually declining."

The very next night, anchor Charles Gibson plugged an upcoming
story by saying, "When we come back, America's energy crisis. Gas
prices are soaring and they'll get even worse this summer."

So one night there's no energy crisis and Dubya's a dunce ... and
the next night there is an energy crisis!

Which is it, ABC? You can't have it both ways. And you've just shown
the world that you're more interested in slamming the Bush
administration than reporting the facts.

Water vs. Coke

  We all know that water is important but I've never seen it written
down like this before.

75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (Likely applies to half
world pop.)

In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often
mistaken for hunger.

Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%.

One glass of water shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of
the dieters studied in a U-Washington study.

Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could
significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory,
trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer
screen or on a printed page.

Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer
by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is
50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?



   No wonder coke tastes soooo good:

1. In many states (in the USA) the highway patrol carries two gallons
of Coke in the truck to remove blood from the highway after a car

2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of coke and it will be gone in
two days.

3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl and
.......Let the "real thing" sit for one hour, then flush clean. The
citric acid in Coke removes stains from vitreous china.

4. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub the bumper with a
crumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.

5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of
Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.

6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Applying a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to
the rusted bolt for several minutes.

7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into the baking pan,
wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. Thirty minutes before the ham
is finished, Remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix with the
Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.

8. To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of coke into a load of
greasy clothes, add detergent, And run through a regular cycle. The
Coca-Cola will help loosen grease stains. It will also clean road haze
from your windshield.


FYI: 1. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its Ph is
2.8. It will dissolve a nail in about 4 days.

2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial truck
must use the Hazardous material place cards reserved for Highly
corrosive materials.

3. The distributors of coke have been using it to clean the engines of
their trucks for about 20 years!

Proof is in the water
Bishopville to stop adding fluoride to water
Item Staff Writer
June 25, 2001

BISHOPVILLE - Water - it runs from every spigot, every faucet, every shower
head. And in Bishopville, it soon will become more natural.
At the end of June, Bishopville will discontinue adding fluoride to its
water, a practice that started more than 30 years ago.

The American Dental Association began promoting adding fluoride to town
water supplies to fight tooth loss. But because there has been data showing
fluoride both harms and helps teeth, controversy has swirled about the

Mike Deas, the Bishopville utility director, got curious one day and started
studying its effects.

"I started to do some research, and I started to read all these things where
fluoride could be dangerous," Deas said."I started thinking, what if 20
years from now, it turns out that fluoride is harmful, and we didn't stop
using it? What would they think of us?"

Needed by the body in trace amounts, fluoride helps the body retain calcium
required for bone and tooth development. But research, Deas found, pointed
to long-term problems and diseases resulting from drinking water containing

Some studies show a link between fluoridation and hip fractures. One study
shows a 5 percent increase in cancers in communities that add fluoride to
the water.

Deas said he was braced for backlash when the decision was announced, but he
hasn't received one phone call or visit. The state Department of Health and
Environmental Control has no official opinion and allows towns and water
companies to make their own decision on fluoride.

"There is no requirement that anyone use it," said Ronny Rentz, the director
for DHEC's Wateree District. "I don't know what the general feeling is, to
be honest."

The South Carolina Board of Dentistry has never issued an opinion on
fluoride use, either.

The Item contacted both dentists in Bishopville, and both declined to

Also, several European countries including France, Germany, Austria and
Luxembourg either never used fluoride or have stopped using it.

Locally, Sumter uses fluoride while Manning never has added it.

"The only thing we add to our water is chlorine for disinfectant,' said
Rubin Hardy, public works director for Manning.

Al Harris, director of public services for Sumter, doesn't plan on getting
rid of fluoride any time soon.

"There's some controversy on it as it is with any chemical; but right now,
we plan to probably leave it in for a while," Harris said.

The American Dental Association has maintained that fluoride is a key
component of dental care.

The ADA cites study after study that shows that adding fluoride to the water
supply is an effective means of helping tooth growth in poorer communities.

Still, Deas said he believes the people of Bishopville could be better
served by fluoride through other sources.

While the most common source of fluoride is water, it is also in meats such
as liver and kidneys; fish and seafood, including canned sardines; and
apples, grape juice, eggs and tea.

Additionally, much of the fluoride Bishopville adds to the water gets
returned to the environment. Once in the environment, it is considered a
contaminant and has to be regulated.

Deas estimates that less than one-tenth of a percent of Bishopville's water
is actually consumed. Lee County has several industries and farms that use
water for irrigation and industrial purposes.

After reviewing the situation, Deas has come to one conclusion.
