Renowned Doctor Speaks on the Dumbing Down Effects of Fluoride


In the article entitled Dumbing Down Society Pt I: Foods, Beverages and Meds, I wrote that fluoride was a toxic chemical that caused the deterioration of cognitive functions when ingested. In other words, swallowing fluoride makes you dumber. Despite the fact that some communities have recently managed to gather enough support to get their cities to stop water fluoridation (see Pinellas County in Florida), millions of people are still unaware of the dangers of fluoride and still consume great amounts of it.

In this video, a dentist describes the brain numbing effects of fluoride when consumed in unhealthy doses.

i've shown this video to my sceptical class mates at the university and although this man gives many pieces of evidence about this issue which clearly show the mainstream cover up, those people still say that this is a "conspiracy theory"!!! yeah, and obama received his nobel piece prize for his great deeds towards maintaining global piece by bombing everyone who disobeys TPTB…

try tom's all natural strawberry works great with no floride and smells and taste good too

Baking Soda

I use Toms Products for my tooth paste…and use Toms under arm deodorent. It is sodium and fluoride free. Great essentials for healthy living. If you dont know sodium is why men and woman can get breast cancer. source

I meant aluminum as well

I make my own: 2 parts (teaspoons) bicarb soda 1 part (teaspoon) salt, 10 drops pure peppermint oil. Store in a reusalbe plastic/glass/wooden pot w/lid. NOT METAL.

Make small doses to keep it fresh. It cleans, polishes and is also anti-bacterial. When I brush with regualr toothpaste w/flouride my teeth feel scummy by 3pm. When I use my DIY powder, my teeth stay cleaner till roughly 8/9pm.

By making your own, you helping yourself and the enviroment and saving cash too.

You expect people to take you seriously when you can't even spell properly?

@gco whatever, the man/woman has a point… pls focus next time when you want to diss someone…

Even though I'm not a native English speaker, I know how to pronounce the word "peace", I also know what piece means. But, I know what he meant and he's 100% right in what he's saying. I'm just wondering what kind of University he's going too :-). But seriously, could have been just a mistake, doesn't mean we're dealing with an idiot here.

The fact that you isolated that one word indicates that you, GCO cannot be taken seriously.

Some of the greatest minds have dealt with learning "difficulties" and I expect you to comment on that, but nethertheless it appears that your mind has yet to grow out of the anal phase.

Hear hear Artas lol. Obama is coming to a shore near you!!

dont blame your friends the fluoride got to their brains

the video is very obvious and the doctors makes a very clear argument obviously the harms outweighs the very small benefit by much more and the increasing percentage of mental retardation is a fact

plus it should be by choice its not so important and without side effects that it should be put in our drinking water

Try the siwak. Not sure how readily available it is worldwide but here it's everywhere. Siwak is a tree that has great medicinal qualities for the teeth. You cut a branch of it and scrub your teeth with its raw end.

It has been popularized in Islamic tradition.

Im sure they are saying it's a conspiracy theory since they have not done enough research on the subject. in general people are always ready to defend the government or cause its seems impossible. this is the problem with our society and the whole world. More ppl need to wake up and stop being brainwashed. IMO there are enough studies to proof that fluoride is indd toxic and should NOT be added to water or tooth paste.

It's one thing to hear rumors about it, but when an expert like this says the exact same thing, it pays to listen. If he doesn't know what he's saying, then few others likely will.

I guess it would be wise to start looking for alternatives to toothpaste then. All those times we swallow toothpaste – accidental or not – can't be good. As they say, it's better to be safe than sorry.

Yeah our dumbass town had a meeting and decided to KEEP fluoride in the drinking water! Will be buying a steam distiller. OOOOHH yeah, almost forgot….all those tomatoes and vegetables you're eating were all grown on human CRAP! I seen 3 TV programs that showed what they did at the sewage plant. After they filter the human feces, they then dry out the "solids" and truck it to the farmers as "ORGANIC" fertilizer! Our local tomatoes at the store look like hell, all black spots and rotting from the inside out…scary stuff folks! Now realize that everyone (except me) is taking useless prescription medicine (slow poison-really) that your brainwashed doctor prescribed…'er pushed on you. Well…all those meds get pissed out of your body and into the lakes and get back into your drinking water! So now, along with fluoride you're also drinking all the medication that your neighbors are taking… Read more »

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap, the peppermint kind, at Fred Meyer and health-food stores.

It tastes just like peppermint & has a million other uses. Add baking soda & hydrogen peroxide if desired. BE GENTLE when using baking soda.

By the way, Fluoride gives you arterial plaque too, and it calcifies your pineal gland to the point that you eventually lose all connection to your higher nature.

i wonder if the fluoride on the water is only on the u.s. or is it worldwide, anyone knows anything about this? I live in México and over here we do NOT drink water from the tab because it is not purified, we only drink bottled or from the large purified bottles, so i am curious to know if this applies to other countries

I believe there are countries that fluoridate any potable water–the more developed countries most likely. Not too sure which are the ones though.

Anyway, for those of you who are interested, the WHO (World Health Organisation) has a document on Fluoride in drinking water. Here's the link:

I did remember a few years back that WHO promoted countries putting fluoride in the potable water that gets piped to homes and offices, though…

Victoria Rose that's splendid. I like original individuals like you, not the copycat types if you get my drift. Surely you're not a dummy that needs a ventriloquist to function.

I personally drink rain water. Give it a go, you might like it.

Earth is our home. Everything we need to not just survive but Thrive is here. There is no reason to allow these sickos to continue their crimes against humanity.

Stay away from domestic wine and beer, sports drinks, soda pop, toothpastes, mouthwashes, bottled water (usually not from a natural spring). Unfortunately the list is endless but we can do something. Install a Reverse Osmosis system (Apec water filters start at $300)

The good news is some parts of the country are banning water fluoridation like Pinellas county, FL. More at

I haven't used toothpaste or mouthwash for years… I brush my teeth with a toothbrush and rinse with water. That's all. I use dental floss (there's a lot of things you could use as dental floss btw…) My teeth and gums are perfectly healthy. Off course they're problably healthier than when I used to use toothpaste. My breath doesn't smell neither. In fact, when I used to use toothpaste and mouthwash before going to bed, my breath would stink in the morning, and my mouth would be dry, everytime. →Preventing tooth decay (cause by bacteria) is as simple as making sure there's no food left in your mouth for bacteria to feed on so they can mutiply and cause damage. Solve the problem at its source. You don't need to kill them (that's what toothpaste and mouthwash do). ← Nobody needs any toothpaste, homemade or not, or any mouthwash. JUST… Read more »

Auromere's cardamom/fennel is to die for! It contains neem & peelu which prevents bleeding gums. Zero fluoride.

would you please talk about the secret circle and vampire diaries? its all evil,sexual,ritual and satanisme!

After I read VC's previous article on Fluoride, I immediately did my own research and was convinced to change my toothpaste. I was adamant that all the fluoride-base toothpaste should not be used at home anymore. At first my father thought I was in my 'teen moods' and wanting to make my own identity or such stuff, but my mother, who took up Nursing, understood me when I mentioned fluorosis and defended me. It has been a year (more or less) since I changed my toothpaste and even my sister admitted she feels different. We both feel our minds are much more lighter, quicker, and my memories have improved. As my sister said, 'I feel less dumb'. Whenever I stay at a friend's or cousin's house where their toothpaste is of fluoride, and did not bring mine, I felt weird using theirs. It's as if my body is rebelling or… Read more »
Do you also have a reverse Osmosis filter to remove flouride from your water? I ask because if you are seeing a change just from toothpaste alone then this show how much removing even a small amount can make a difference. I find this very fascinating. I want my level of thinking to return to what it was. As 'awakened' as I may be, my mind just isn't what it was. I used to have an almost perfect photographic memory, I could get 90's on tests without hardly trying, I had so much energy, never needed naps or took caffeine. Now I feel brain dead a lot of the time, I have the worst mood swings, I feel disconnected and out of it a lot of the time. I will be at work, I receive instructions and I give the dumbest answers. It takes me a few seconds to process… Read more »

Nope, we are not using reverse osmosis. In Malaysia here, specifically Sarawak, the water is not flooded with fluoride. However, if i'm not mistaken, the government mixed the water with chlorine. And around the time I changed my toothpaste, I switched from boiling water to mineral water. Less hassle, and taste nicer. Maybe that's another factor of my 'awakening'. 🙂

Do you know about Digital Prayer Technology? Nothing to do with praying. It's a music developed by scientists to help develop your brains and stuff. I am listening to that for some time and it does improve things, especially controlling my temper. Do check it out. And perhaps you should get out of the abusive relationship. I'm in my early 20s too. Heck, I'm still a uni student. Dependence on technology has numbed my brains. I used to be able to memorize pages upon pages in under 10 minutes yet now I can hardly memorize a page without reading it over and over and over again for who knows how long. Few days back, I forgot to bring my calculator and I had a hard time calculating simple stuff like 27,000 X 1.20. During high school, I aced calculus. Now, I can't even do a simple multiplication. It's scary. I… Read more »
Oh believe me, I am finally out of that relationship, and I am trying to get my life back to what it was. Getting back to a healthy emotional and mental state of being is the most difficult part. I was ingesting a big amount of MSG's in my food because of the unhealthy eating habits that I developed during that time. I now try to eat organic. I also used to drink a lot of tap water but now I drink water filtered from my refrigerator, though I don't know how much good it does since I have read only reverse osmosis filters fully remove fluoride. I have switched to buying loose organic green tea also. The tea bought from the grocery stores contain large amounts of fluoride in the tea bags. Don't feel bad. I have also begun to re-learn my basic times tables because even multiplying smaller… Read more »


OhKathy, could you please put a link to this product?

Maua – it's just good old fashioned borax that you find in the laundry detergent section of the grocery store. I started out with the "20 mules" brand, then I found "Eco Pioneer" pure borax. Here in Canada it can be ordered on It seems crazy at first, but the more I researched it the more I realized that it is a natural substance and used over a short period in very small amounts it isn't harmful. There is a lot of dis-info online so you have to be discerning, but if the powers that were are trying so hard to demonize borax, we must be onto something good! There is also homeopathic borax, again here in Canada we have the Boiron brand of homeopathic pellets. This might be a better route for anyone freaked out about using laundry detergent! But I used regular borax on myself and then… Read more »

Well it's mainly just America and a FEW other countries that has to worry, even Canada doesn't use as much fluoride in their water.

When I was in elementary school in the 80s, the school nurse would deliver little cups of Flouride to our class I think once a week, and they forced us to swish with flouride. I now teach at an elementary school, and that would be unheard of…I'm not sure why they made us do that. Looking back, how weird!!!! They had a nasty orange and a nasty green…couldn't stand it!

And we were hardly vaccinated back then.

Does anyone know if Ozarka water contains fluoride?

I wanted to add that Trader Joes also makes flouride free toothpaste as well as Dessert Essence.

"Oil Pulling" is an age old, eastern world, way of cleaning the teeth by using an oil like coconut oil or safflower, really any, to pull bacteria and viruses from the pores of the teeth and gums. Fascinating. Also, only water treated by reverse osmosis, pulls the fluoride out. I remember getting little cups of fluoride to rinse with in school, maybe a few times a year. I would love to know what cities and or states in the US are not fluoridated. Regarding a comment above about the govt running these popular websites – they may not run these sites, but they love them, and the elite needs the internet more than we do, because it gives them a constant consensus of what we think and believe. They need us and, fear us, more than we do them. Hence, the fluoride factor.

I brush my teeth with soap and use hydrogen peroxide as mouth wash, haven't used regular toothpaste since 2006. I drink bottled water that contains 0.80 flouride, is that ok? I've been wanting to get a filter for some time now, I'm just not sure which one I should get.

Oh, my….! Tarzan?

Why would you say that? It cleans just as well if not better. I used to suffer from bad breath, loose teeth, and occasional bleeding gums before I stopped using toothpaste and 'anti-bacterial' mouthwash, and I was Obsessed with flossing and brushing my teeth between classes and after eating. My teeth are now super healthy and bright!

Apec Reverse Osmosis systems start at $300.

Thank you! I will look it up

"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."

Best sentence, ever.

Take a look at this site:

Thank God for those who are trying to show us the reality!

Did you know children at A-Level age (16-18) in the UK for mathematics, are being taught what kids were expected to know at school age in the 1920's? Not everyone chooses to take on a maths A-Level, what these kids had to learn in the 1920's was the syllabus and was COMPULSORY. But every year the results show that more kids are passing A*-C than the past generations? Exams are now easier than ever in order to accommodate the new brain capacity of most of the general population. This idea that children now are smarter than the previous generations is a complete lie. fluoride also calcifies the pineal gland (doesn't allow light to enter), or third eye. this is also stopping our ability to ascend to spirituality and to be peaceful beings. It is a definite plan to keep man kind in a kind of sheep/drone/animal state of mind. Hitler… Read more »

Nope nope nope. I did Maths AND Add. Maths ( A and B respectively). Obviously you didn't do it because it's a bit difficult. Of course the work changes, do you still want them to teach latin and greek in school? I thought so. Don't talk about something you did not experience first hand.

Also, fluoridation in water is an American creation, implemented by Americans. There is no proof that Hitler did that to Nazi Germany. Considering that water fluoridation was considered communist by the general American public and Hitler rightly fought communism.

Actually, I would love it if they still taught greek and latin as it is very helpful in understanding the law and medicine (amongst many other things).

I have not found a direct link with the Nazi's being the first to flouridate, either. If anyone has anything on that let me know. I do know that it was used in the Gulags of Russia (first cases I could find).

The man on the right is Dr Mercola, he has a very informative website, very logical man. Also, if you live in the UK, Holland and Barrats have some nice flouride free toothpaste, dr organic range, and some others, they have natural ingredients with tea tree oil etc, reasonble price and since I started using them, I no longer have sensitive teeth! I use to use sensodyne.

i stopped chewing that illuminati gum n candy a long time ago and only drink certain bottled water my mind is as clear as glass and i will do ANYTHING to reverse the damage already done before i knew all this….i will fight back with my functioning brain!

Check out Borax, it actually leaches fluoride out of the bones and, most importantly, out of the Pineal gland in our brains. Fluoride calcifies our Pineal, thus the dumbing down effect. I used borax with great success! Just put a pinch of pure borax in a glass of water each day for a few days. I could not sleep the second night from the awakening effects this had on my brain! It is also good to take cleansing precautions as you do this, drink lots of water, eat lots of veggies, maybe take spirulina or chlorella. I'm not an expert, please research this for yourself (as I'm sure you would – being one of Vig's informed readers!) I'm just sharing what worked for me and my family. Make sure you use pure borax, not boric acid! You can even sprinkle it in your bath water to neutralize the fluoride there… Read more »

If you don't mind me asking, what brands of water bottles do you use?

Spritzer. Or Aqua (whenever I travel to Indonesia, that is). I tried Evian, but too blardee expensive and it taste different. Perhaps because the source is way different than the Spritzer one. On another note, Evian, read backwards, is Naive. Which freaks me out. So, I stopped drinking that.

Pooh… I tried brushing my teeth with bicarbonate of soda for a while, but it just didn't keep the yellow away.

I wonder what fluoride levels are here in South African water. Does the average jug filter take the fluoride out of water? Nobody's going to answer me… and it would be so nice if someone would.

@Githe – I doubt that the average jug filter (eg. Brita water filter) will remove all fluoride. According to the Brita water filter website (, the filter only removes trace amount of fluoride. The website also seems to promote fluoride use by stating that the filter (and I'm paraphrasing) 'only removes a trace amount, which ensures that your child gets the fluoride they need in order to prevent cavities'

Heavens above! If the water filter people are in on it, it's pretty much tickets for us. Thank you for replying 😉 x

I distil my water. Anyone telling you the junk science of "you need the minerals in the water, and distilling takes them out.", is full of BS! You can get plenty of minerals out of your food! I have been distilling for over 3 years. I would rather take my chances distilling, than ingesting they're poison! You can also replenish the minerals in distilled water w/ plasma ph drops, they increase the alkalinity of the water, thus maximizes optimal cellular obsorbtion. Tap water is acidic, thus causing scaring of internal organs. Hense, the reason we have so many obese people. I'm sure all the GMO's (fast food), and the chemical spraying doesn't help much either.

Githe – and ****Anyone wondering what type of filtration removes fluoride!!**** Reverse Osmosis is the only filtration system which removes (most or all) fluoride from tap water. There are different ways to go about it. An "under-sink" model which is typically an easy setup, costs anywhere from $150-250, and is used solely for drinking/cooking water. You will use about 3 gallons of water for every gallon you actually get. There are whole-house systems as well, but expect your water bill to go up 5x because of the water "wasted" in the process. These typically cost $2000-5000, and will result in much higher water bills, but your whole house (and garden sprinklers, etc.) will be fluoride free. If you're loaded$$$, go for it, but if not, spend a few bucks, and get the important part taken care of, your drinking/cooking water. NEVER boil water to get the fluoride out. You'll only… Read more »

@ bullzi-

Since when was wikipedia a reliable source of unbiased information?

Get a clue!

we know that about wiki but most of the (flouridated) population doesn’t, especially the youth, hence the post, plus it’s interesting to read what information is out there, when maybe a clueless person’s reaction who caught wind of the danger of flouridated water would be to google it and find wikipedia at the top of the list, click it and read it only to then inevitably ignor the real truth


Mind Control of the Masses

Oh please, Wikipedia sure is a good tool, but it CANNOT be taken as 100% true source, as ANYONE can post to Wikipedia. Wikipedia =/= truth!

Miss South Carolina too dumb for p**n.

Check it out, Click here to see video
She loves her fluoride I can tell because she has nice pearly white teeth.

I mean= she luv her tootpaste c hur tooths r so white.

Recent polls have shown 1/5 of Americans can't find the U.S. on a world map. (yeah right RECENT POLLS= B.S. Are they polling three yr olds? Are we really that dumb yet? )

So America go out and buy maps for South Africa, Iraq and such as.

Jerry Springer for Pres.

when I heard the question I thought its impossible that that many people cant locate the US on the map

but her answer is proof enough for me

que indignante y lastimoso en verdad todo esto que sucede para los habitantes del U.S, quieren titeres o qué…bueno, saludos desde Perú, y agradecer por otro buen articulo al ciudadano vigilante

Hola Liz…eres de que cuidad de Peru?? Estoy alegre que hay peruanos leyendo los articulos de este sitio. Saludos! 🙂

I agree with you!

But the way, what the American society is doing to stop things with no logic happened in their country. They're not seeing that they're being used as lab rats and then they'll make it in practice with the others countries in the world?

I saw in the news, a group of people protesting against banks, and resuming all the protest words they were saying that the bank will not take one more cent from their lives.

I respect these ppl and others around the world who always standing up against some didactors governments.

Peace for everyone!

somtimes it does'nt matter if you show them all the proof in the world, when it comes to change, most people fear it because they live in fear . they feel they can't control what would happen if they were to go against the machine, against the police state, against the authority head. most people would rather live in this fear or under the radar than die for what they believe in….i dont agree with the suicide bombers…but i give credit to them because whether we agree with them or not , they are willing to die for their beliefs…how many of us here can actually do that….they have on a really good pair of cojones (spanish for balls, lol) to do those things…

the sad truth is most people have no beliefs, values or limitations

all they think about is food ,fun and sex and they dont waste time thinking about anything meaningful or deeper they dont analyze or research anything

anything that may jeopardize their animal-like life style

suddenly its cool to be stupid and nonchalant

as they say" I just want to be happy"

What a shame; I'm so gutted.

Well there is way more going on than just fluoride. People might want to stay away from HD TV, Sugar, caffeine, meat products, and the list goes on.

Here is a good article just about bread

So the list goes on and on. Next thing we'd have to stay away from breathing cos it contains a lot of poisonous gases. While there's a whole lot we can abstain from, there might be a lot more we can't. So I recommend we pray for our families and believe in the absolute power of God to save us from those things we may not even know about or be able to save ourselves from. Thanks A D, nice one.


Unless I really dig through the link you posted, I don't see information on why many of those things are bad for you. Refined sugar is, sure, but what about raw cane sugar (in proper quantities?) What about naturally-raised meat? And how is caffeine bad for you? Not trying to be a smart-arse, just wondering if maybe you're confusing chemically-poisoned sugar, GMO and horomone-poisoned meat, etc., with real foods. Everything sensible I know says that, plain and simple, if you consume natural foods, etc., in the right variety and quantities, you'll be in great health. It isn't until you're consuming the industrial-tainted foods that you have problems. Regarding HD-tv…I want to look into that, I've wondered, as the advent of HD-TV brought the first degree of picture clarity where your brain actually interacts to form the complete picture, because it can't take the full detail provided in as a whole… Read more »

Don't believe the hype Jeff and AD. Grass fed Beef is GREAT for you. Sugar, even pure cane, and wheat are not good for you. As far as caffeine goes, I personally have been addicted to the point where if I didn't have one with lunch I would get headaches and couldn't stay awake in class, so I kicked the stuff and I really don't see how something that you can get withdrawal symptoms from could be good for you. Check this website out Nice little blog written by a doctor ( who actually shows his face on the front page for everyone to see he is a real person unlike the ghost writer mr.Vigilant Citizen.)

Are they found in toothpastes as well? I know there are fluoride traces in water, but hey, that'd be even worse 'cause my kids used to eat their strawberry-flavored toothpaste (although I'm trying to stop them).

I know what you mean. My son eats his as well and it's almost impossible to stop them once it's in the mouth cos it actually tastes good, lol. Thing is, most toothpastes contain fluoride as its supposed to be like the "no.1" ingredient for strong and healthy teeth. But there are a few which have minimal fluoride especially for kids or even no fluoride at all. Herbal toothpaste are also recommendable.

Flouride is found in adult toothpaste, not in toothpaste made for kids.

Oh no, it's found in alot of "Kids Crest" varieties as well. It's just a "kid-friendly" dose of fluoride instead. Check out their sparkly fun flavor.

Thank you for the post, VC! Another blow to the fluoride is awesome schtick!

there is probably *more* flouride in kids toothpaste, so as to do more damage, and earlier. look up homemade toothpaste recipes online. use vegetable glycerin (from palm oil) as one of the ingredients, and it will make it sweeter. really, to assume that kids products are safer is not being very vigilant at all. their mission: to kill, to devour, and to destroy. they do not care about your children one iota.

Spry is a zylitol toothpaste with no fluoride. Tom's also has fluoride free options but some people do not trust it since it was purchased by Colgate. We use either of these since most kids toothpastes do contain fluoride, it's just the infant ones that don't.

Glycerin shouldn't be added to toothpaste because it doesn't allow the teeth to re-enamel but I can't find one without the ingredient.

Flouride in toothpastes are harmless if not swallowed. Flouride in potable water is considered dangerous well because you take it inside your body. If you read VC's articles related to flouride, its presence in drinking water can actually affect the pineal gland. IIRC there is no documented proof that flouride in toothpaste is dangerous, unless swallowed.

The thing is, even if you gargle the fluoride out of your mouth, there would be some residue left which you can taste when you swallow your saliva that is mixed with it. In the end, you are still swallowing it…

I want to meet the person who gets all of the fluoride out of their mouth after brushing their teeth, as well as not absorbing any through their mouth in the process. It would be quite an accomplishment, to be honest.

Glycerin-free. I have some of this, and it is a little bit nasty (How it feels, since it has glycerin) but I can put up with that if it means my teeth will be the better for it.

Thank you, this is a great proof. Again.
