The High Rank of Fluorides
by George Trinkaus
The most telling case against fluoridation I've ever seen was a table of toxicity expressed in grams-to-kill. A toxicity table is the science in a nutshell. Fluoride compounds show a shockingly high status when ranked among other poisons. Grams-to-kill is a striking metric.
I have not been able to recover that original grams-to-kill document, seen circa 1990. A similar table is published in a later edition of my source book, but it expresses lethality more obscurely in milligrams-per-kilogram of body weight (mg/kg). From this table I selected a short list. Then I multiplied the mg by 70, which is today's official average weight in kg. That yields mg-to-kill. Divide that by 1000 to get grams-to-kill.

Dr Judd has passed, but a worthy successor is chemist,
toxicologist, and fluoride-fighter Paul Connett. He's got a video lecture
on You-tube, but I prefer the radio interview by Dennis Bernstein on
KPFA's Flashpoint 4/10/13 (aired on KBOO 4/11).
I have yet to see a table of toxicity from Dr. Connett.
toxic lethality studies
Most data on human lethality comes from extrapolations based upon the poisoning of lab rats. The one exception is strychnine, for which there are human figures. (I know not why.)
suspect that, if you went digging into the archives of the CDC, you
would find numbers corresponding to those in the table above. I
also suspect that some digging might even turn up a few human studies
with titles like The Auschwitz Chemical Lethality Study of 1940 or The
Toxicity Study of 1985, but my mind wanders darkly.
I figure that, if toxicity tables speak to me, they might be useful in communicating with the public at large. For the fluoridation issue, toxicology is the most relevant discipline in all of science.
Because fluoridation is sold as dentistry, one might be tempted to
fight a resistance campaign in dental terms. This is just what the fluoridators want. But dental health is not the issue; it is just the pretext. The real issue is mass
poisoning. The toxicity table is one way to state this message. The expert needed is not a dentist or doctor but a chemist, a toxicologist. The
toxicologist will tell you that fluoridation is not just a risk but a
dead certainty. Toxify the water supply and negative public health
impacts are assured.
Judd saw ADA
dentistry as a racket and as a health risk, reminding us of mercury
filings and of McMinneville teenager, Keith Kantor, who perished in the
dentist's chair after swallowing fluoride gel.
Surely there are more Keith Kantors that you never hear about.
Fluoridated teeth cleaning has become a veternary fashion, and there
are reports of dogs under treatment expiring on the table.
Can you filter out fluorides?
Judd insists that, contrary to some product claims, no commercial filter exists that can remove fluorides from drnking water, incluuding reverse-osmosis and distillation units. This is because those sneaky fluoride molecules are smaller than the molecules of H2O.
