Fluoride


Is It Really Arthritis?

Similar symptoms

Because arthritis has such a wide range of similar diseases it is rarely noticed that there is an impostor in the group. I fact there are nearly 200 and that one very dangerous impersonator fits in like camouflage in a jungle. The impostor is skeletal fluorosis which is now quite common due to fluoride in water supplies and toothpaste. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, too much fluoride causes “chronic joint pain” and “arthritic symptoms.” Further to this and despite much covering up activity, modern research has highlighted the fact that fluoride induced joint pain can and does occur in the absence of skeletal fluorosis, further to this fluoride has been identified as a direct cause of osteoarthritis. Researchers include Czerwinski 1988, Tartatovskaya1995, Bao 2003, Savas 2001 and Chen 1988.

The reversal is relatively easy in the avoidance of fluoride but of course this is hard in countries where the water supply contains added fluoride. Correct diagnosis however is critical

Chronic fluoride exposure can cause bone condition known as skeletal fluorosis where the pelvis and lower spine develop osteosclerosis normally identified by x-ray but latest research has clearly shown that joint pain can occur long before changes in the spine are detectable. The actual extent of misdiagnosis is unknown and creates a serious problem for society where fluoride is a forced medication.

Further to these findings the dosage is unknown where fluoride becomes dangerous and is found to fluctuate in sympathy with exposure to stress, which effects almost all western country residents. Chinese finding concur that doses as low as 6.2 to 6.6mg per day can cause the symptoms and this can come from forced medication in combination with tea consumption.
