Transcript ■*■ THE CASE AGAINST FLUORIDATION plement the criminal aims of their mentors and speed the destruction of America, it would seem that to un- questioningly accept as an invalidation the label of "scaremonger" is a luxury which we cannot afford. Princess Illeana of Roumania tells, in her book, 1 Live Again, of information given to her by Roumanian dictator Ana Pauker that the take-over of the United States will be accomplished by thc acquisition (not destruction ) of the utilities, ancl by poisoning the water supplies.10 Lenin said: "Get control of the public health agencies and furnish the keystone in the arch of the socialized state."10 Harold D. Lasswell has stated in an article entitled "The Garrison State," which appeared in the American Journal of Sociology (1941), that "if recent advances in pharmacology continue, physical means of controlling response can replace symbolic methods. "This refers," he continued, "to the use of drugs not only for temporary orgies of energy on the part of front line fighters, but in order to deaden the critical function of all who are not held in esteem by the ruling state."10 The use of fluorides for such purpose would, of course, be allied with methods used ancl recently reported to the American public, in brainwashing American war prisoners in Red China. Aiding the Enemy According to Major Jordan, the water supplies of West Point Military Academy come from the artificially- fluoridated water system of Newburgh, New York, from which also emanate water supplies for Stewart Field, a jet plane base for protection of New York City.11 "It is another one of those strange coincidences," states Major Jordan, "that the Pentagon, Annapolis, West Point, ports of embarkation, naval installations were the first to receive this fluoridation, even though there were no children."'' It has recently been announced that Fort Lewis, Washington, expects to be the first army post in the country treated with fluorine. Coupled with the announcement is the statement that "installation of equipment to treat Page 42 (Continued from page 12) the water for the benefit of teeth, especially in children, is scheduled as soon as funds are available."'- Should it be necessary to subject our inductees ancl enlisted men to the dangers of fluorine toxicity in order to benefit the comparatively few children present, particularly at this embarkation point? It might be well to ask, "How young are they drafting our soldiers these days?" Mrs. Golda Fran/en testified before the House Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce: "I know fluoridation is a Communist scheme — frankly, the Master Plan — but I cannot prove it, for those who have informed me cannot testify; they would be liquidated if they did."13 The Daily Worker, official publication of the Communist Party in the United States, carried an article on March 13, 1956, lauding the so-called benefits of fluoridation. Commenting upon this in the New York Herald Tribune of March 18, 1956, former FBI agent Herbert Philbrick stated: "Tbe Communists, who have been publicly urging that sodium fluoride be placed in our public water supply, are currently intensifying their campaign for this measure."14 USPHS Tests Questioned While the Public Health Service points with pride to extensive compilations of statistics based upon their ten-year studies of Newburgh and Kingston, it is noteworthy that the Newburgh News of January 27, 1954, stated that Newburgh had a higher heart death rate than "for the nation as a whole."1"' The May, 1954, report of the Public Health Service, "Water- borne Fluorides and Mortality," does not include statistics on their test city of Newburgh. This report also makes no distinction between naturally fluoridated and artificially fluoridated cities, whereas anti-fluoridationists, as in the case of Major Jordan, previously quoted, point to the high content of calcium, as well as other chemical components, present in waters which are fluoridated by nature, which are not present to the same degree in waters to which fluoride compounds are added. It is also noteworthy that extensive tests rriade by the U. S. Public Health Service in their comparative studies in Newburgh and Kingston did not include any which would indicate the effects of fluorides on the mentalities of test city residents. The Public Health Service points to Bartlett, Texas, as proof that twenty to thirty years of fluoridation does not lead to bone disease, nor increase in' cidence of cancer or kidney trouble The water in Bartlett has a naturd fluorine content of 8 ppm (parts pel million), whereas the amount of artificial fluoridation recommended by health authorities is only 1 ppm. A check on inhabitants of Bartlet' seemed to give fluoridation a clean hi" of health until it was learned that w 116 citizens in Bartlett, only eleVo] had lived there all their lives.16 Cornel's Nose in the Tent Dr. Frederick B. Exner of the I '"■ versify of Washington has stated: "B? yond any reasonable question, the so" purpose in wanting to add fluorine " the water supply, rather than offer " in some saner fashion, is so that it cs* serve as a precedent for compulsof! medication in non-contagious ease."10 This is borne out by the public pff diction of Dr. Leonard Scheele, Suf geon General of the U. S. Publ-* Health Service, who told a 1953 Was* ington conference of state and tern tonal health and hospital authoring that community-wide attack on "h more serious diseases than dental of cay" probably will be forthc-onii'1-' after laboratory tests have paved t*1- way.17 Incurable Mottling One of the dangers of fluoridiitio-1 admitted even by its strongest suR porters, is that of "mottled eniunc which has been observed even wlK'J1 fluorides ill the water are at relative"1- low levels. Even so-called mild m" tling changes the smooth, glos*?' creamy whiteness of normal teeth a dull, unglazed surface with irregur chalky white patches. In so-cal'(H "l lati/in. ,,;,. til.
