Flouride and Chlorine in our drinking water is poisoning us to death?

    :Stop the industrial use of Dihydrogen Oxide

    I agree totally! We should even stop personal use. Remember that lady who died of dihydrogen oxide poisoning because of a radio show contest? I think we should forever BAN that stuff!

    Keep the beer. Ban the dihydrogen oxide, I say.

    Flouride actually has been found to increase bone cancer in young boys. Possibly men too. Not sure about girls and women or why it would be different.

    :Flouride actually has been found to increase bone cancer in young boys.

    In solution of one million times the recommended dosage, artificial sweeteners do the same thing in rats.

    In large enough quantities, every element and every vitamin and every mineral that is necessary for human life is fatally toxic. That would include that nefarious chemical compound dihydrogen oxide.

    The question should be, how MUCH flouride is good (if any) is good for us?

    To be safe, I always drink tap water out of my aluminum foil hat.

    Sir 82 said: "Yes, I by far prefer the taste and health benefits of bacteria and parasites in my water...."

    As I stated before, Chlorine is fine for disinfecting but not for drinking.

    "Wow! 3.5 billion people have cancer!"

    Whether he's right or wrong I believe he was talking about the USA and the likelihood of getting cancer at some time in your lifetime, not immediately.

    From what I've heard flouride is good for teeth when it is an organic form and brushed into your teeth, not swallowed. In any case a good water filter like I described above should take care of things for those who do not want these chemicals.

    Well if our water is treated, and we drink a lot of it, and brush with flouridated tooth paste, we are probably exposing ourselves to quite a bit. Artificial sweeteners (aspartame) has been found to be harmful. But of course Rumsfeld managed to pull some strings to keep it on the shelves.

    Aha, I stand corrected, the problem is not as serious as I thought....apparently it's only a matter of 150 million persons in the US who currently have cancer.

    Oops, wait a minute...

    the likelihood of getting cancer at some time in your lifetime, not immediately.

    So it's really a matter of 150 million people in the US might get cancer?

    Seems to me that if you live long enough, cancer in some form or another will get you. I suspect the primary reason for the current "explosion" in cancer rates is that people usually live well into their 70's and 80's now, as opposed to 99.9999999% of the history of the human race where reaching age 40 was little short of a miracle.

    A primary cause for the increased longevity? Purifying drinking water so that microbes, parasites, etc. don't get a free ride into your body.

    That said, I filter the water I drink, primarily for taste.

    Another Study Links Fluoride to Bone Cancer

    Wed Apr 29, 2009 8:55am EDT

    NEW YORK, April 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Blood fluoride levels were significantly higher in patients with osteosarcoma than in control groups, according to research published in Biological Trace Element Research (April 2009). Osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer, occurs mostly in children and young adults. Randhu and colleagues measured serum fluoride levels in three equal groups of age-matched and sex-matched patients. Group one had osteosarcoma, group two had non-osteosarcoma bone tumors, and group three had musculo-skeletal pain.(1) "Mean serum fluoride concentration was found to be significantly higher in patients with osteosarcoma as compared to the other two groups," writes Randhu's team. "(T)his report proves a link between raised fluoride levels in serum and osteosarcoma," they write. This reinforces a 2006 published Harvard study by Bassin showing a link between water fluoridation and osteosarcoma in young boys.(2) A 1992 New Jersey Department of Health study shows osteosarcoma rates higher among young males in fluoridated vs. unfluoridated regions of New Jersey.(3) More studies link fluoride to bone and other cancers but are downplayed or ignored by government officials.(4)(5) Bone defects similar to bone cancer were detected in fluoridated Newburgh, NY children as early as 1955. Newburgh is home of the first human health fluoridation experiment begun in 1945. According to Christopher Bryson in The Fluoride Deception, "A radiologist, Dr. John Caffey of Columbia University, called the defects 'striking' in their 'similarity' to bone cancer... and seen more than twice as frequently among boys in Newburgh as among boys in nonfluoridated Kingston [the control city]."(6) In 2006, the prestigious National Research Council review of fluoride/fluoridation toxicology found a fluoride/bone cancer link plausible. "If governments truly want to save money, stopping fluoridation is a no-brainer. It would save money, preserve health and teeth," says attorney Paul Beeber, President, New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation. In 2005, 11 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) employee unions, representing over 7000 environmental and public health professionals called for a moratorium on fluoridation programs across the country and asked EPA management to recognize fluoride as posing a serious risk of causing cancer in people.(7) In addition, over 2,430 professionals urge the U.S. Congress to stop fluoridation until Congressional hearings are conducted, citing scientific evidence that fluoridation, long promoted to fight tooth decay, is ineffective and has serious health risks.

    It is chemical waste made from smoke staks while chlorine was a chemical weapon which was found also to clean water.

    No. Both are naturally occuring elements. Doesn't mean there aren't toxic, just that they aren't manufactured (yes cholrine was used as poison gas in WWI).

    You guys should really stop getting your news from right wing nut jobs, the John Birch Society has been calling this a communist plot for fifty years or so.
