Israel’s Supreme Court Rules Against The Use of Fluoride

I have previously written columns against the use of fluoride in toothpaste. This has not made me popular with dentists. But it has been the opinion of several authorities that fluoride is a poison and does not decrease the amount of dental decay. Now the Supreme Court in Israel has ruled that all public water fluoridation in the state of Israel must cease by 2014, but for another reason.    
                
Irish scientist Declan Waugh has outlined how, within the last 10 years since the use of fluoride in Israel, asthma has increased 100 percent in young adults. Since the use of fluoride in Ireland which started in the late 1960s the prevalence of asthma has increased an amazing 500 percent, affecting one child in five at 12 years of age. Ireland now has the highest prevalence of asthma in the world.

Studies show that fluoride is a pro-inflammatory agent that affects all inflammatory diseases, not merely asthma. And Ireland is the only country in Europe that still enforces the mandatory fluoridation of water. Canada and the U.S. should take note and ban the fluoridation of water.
