Cancer statistics that leave out environmental toxins is like saying that sugar is bad without factoring in exercise

The Tooth Fairy Goes Scientific

Who collects baby teeth? Most of us would say "the Tooth Fairy." But in the late 1950s and 1960s, the Tooth Fairy had a competitor in both the United States and Canada. Beginning in 1958, scientists at Washington University began collecting baby teeth from children in St. Louis, Missouri. A few years later, a Canadian housewife urged her government to do the same and, within weeks, her mailbox was overflowing with baby teeth from children across Canada.

I Gave My Tooth to Science Badge

"By collecting a large number of baby teeth, scientists could assess and compare cancer rates with the presence or absence of strontium-90 in an individual's bones. A radioactive isotope produced by nuclear fission, strontium-90 had an "affinity for bone" and scientists in the 1950s and 1960s feared that it could cause cancer. Although teeth are not bone, similarities between the formation of bone and teeth mean that studying one can often lead to insights into the other.[1]

“Borne by high winds, strontium-90 had not only contaminated vegetables across the country, it had also contaminated the nation's meat and milk supply (meat and milk of animals who had consumed contaminated hay and grass tended to have high levels of strontium-90 which could be passed on to those who consumed these foods).

“Early results indicated that children born after 1945 had high levels of strontium-90. Concerns over these early results influenced President John F. Kennedy as a Partial Test Ban Treaty was being negotiated between the U.S., the Soviet Union, and Britain. Following the implementation of the test ban in 1963, levels of strontium-90 dropped, with children born after 1968 having significantly lower levels than children born just five years earlier.

Ironically, the study, which had garnered so much attention at the time of its initiation, actually went dormant in 1970. Although 85,000 teeth had been collected and maintained in a storage facility owned by Washington University, no follow-up studies were conducted in the decades that followed the collection of these baby teeth.

Operation Tooth Club Card

In 2001, the re-discovery of these teeth led to a follow-up to the study. The discovery that individuals with high levels of strontium-90 had an increased risk of cancer was made public in 2009. Scientists, however, are continuing to study the teeth in the belief that they will shed even greater light on the impact of atomic testing."

Water Fluoridation

Sarin is isopropoxy methylphosphoryl fluoride. Sarin (NATO designation GB [short for G-series, "B"]) is an extremely toxic synthetic organophosphorus compound. A colourless, odourless liquid, it is used as a chemical weapon due to its extreme potency as a nerve agent. added by Mike Menkes

"The Manhattan Project made use of uranium hexafluoride gas, fluoro-organic lubricants for metal bearings, and other fluorine containing materials. Aluminum production, which increased greatly in World War II, utilized cryolite (Na AlF ). Zinc and fluorocarbon production also soared with emissions of fluoride ion or its precursors.[2]

“An Alcoa-sponsored biochemist, Gerald J. Cox, fluoridated some laboratory rats in a study and concluded that fluoride reduced cavities, writing that: “The case should be regarded as proved. On Sept 29, 1939, at a meeting of the American Water Works Association in Johnstown, Pa., …Cox proposed that America should now consider adding fluoride to the public water supply.

“In the 1940s, certain major figures in the Manhattan Project and in fluoride-waste-producing industries succeeded in using some epidemiologic studies, now discredited, to allow public water supplies to have sodium fluoride added in order to prove that 1 ppm of fluoride ion would “prevent tooth decay in children.” None of these or later studies followed other dental or medical outcomes of fluoride consumption over long periods, a flaw that remains in many medical trials to this day.

“After 20 years, the ten fluoridated cities had 10% more cancer deaths than the non-fluoridated cities. The cancers were found in the tongue, mouth, pharynx, oesophagus, stomach, colon, rectum, pancreas, larynx, bronchi, and lungs.

“Bryson’s book, however, suggested that many corporations benefit. These included: US Steel, DuPont, Alcoa, Alcan, Reynolds Metals, Kaiser Aluminum, Pennsalt Chemicals (now ELF Atochem), Allied Chemical, and the Florida phosphate fertilizer industry. Philadelphia, Pa., obtains its hexafluorosilicic acid from Solvay Fluoride. 

“It is stated that industry is able to profit by selling 155,000 tons of fluoride by-products per year for water fluoridation instead of having to dispose of them as toxic waste at great expense. Another consideration might be avoiding enormous tort liability that could be incurred if toxicity were officially recognized (especially in the absence of the EPA’s “safe” level of 4 ppm).

“Since prevention or ending fluoridation of public water supplies is so difficult, your patients may wish to remove fluoride ion from their drinking water. Filters do not work because the diameter of a fluoride anion is 0.064 nm. Activated carbon “filters” are not effective, nor are water-softeners based on cation exchange resins designed to take out calcium, magnesium, and iron, not anions. 

“There are three effective methods: use of a cartridge containing activated alumina adsorbent, the most expensive because the cartridge must be changed so often; reverse osmosis; and distillation, the least expensive method.


“Artificial fluoridation of drinking water by municipalities at 1 ppm of fluoride ion probably does not reduce tooth decay, except for a minor effect on deciduous teeth. Hexafluorosilicic acid and its sodium salt, which contain other toxic substances because they are not purified, certainly have no significant benefit. Proponents of fluoridation have censored most media, ignored intelligent discussion of fluoridation, slandered most opponents of fluoridation, and overturned legal judgments against fluoridation in a manner that demonstrates their political power. Many published studies that had conclusions favouring fluoridation were later found unsupported by their raw data. 

“There is evidence that fluoridation increases the incidence of cancer, hip fractures, joint problems, and that by causing fluorosis it damages both teeth and bones. Other medical problems may also occur, including neurologic damage. Anti-fluoridationists compromise their credibility by unwarranted assertions that many stable fluorine-containing materials are harmful. The EPA should set the enforceable Maximum Contaminant Level at 0.4 ppm fluoride in drinking water. The FDA should reverse its position on permitting sale of products containing fluoride that claim dental benefit without proof of safety or effectiveness. Fluoridation of municipal water should cease. Defluoridation of naturally fluoridated water down to 0.4 ppm of fluoride should be mandated. Individuals should remove fluoride from their tap water if fluoridation cannot be stopped."

    Don't swallow your toothpaste.! Many people do. Use Dr. Toms, non-flouradated. Dont drink tap or well water.
