In 1901, Dr. John Eager reported a dental problem involving lack of enamel and dark stains on the teeth of immigrants from Naples, Italy. Simultaneously, in Colorado Springs, Colorado (in the U.S.), Dr. Frederick McKay noticed the same dental problem and began a decades long research project on the subject. in 1908, he enlisted the aid of Dr. Greene Vardiman Black, who termed the disease "mottled enamel".
In 1924, Interessen Gemeinschaft Farben (I.G. Farben) started receiving loans from American bankers. In 1928, Henry Ford and Standard Oil merged their assets with I.G. Farben. By the 1930s, a multitude of American companies had subsidiaries, cooperative understandings and other financial ties to German industry. At that point, the American I.G. Farben company had the following board of directors:
Edsel Ford, President of the Ford Motor Company, Chas. E. Mitchell, President of Rockerfeller’s National City Bank of New York, Walter Teagle, President of Standard Oil New York, Paul Warburg, Chairman of the federal reserve and brother of Max Warburg, financier of Germany’s War effort, Herman Metz, a director of the Bank of Manhattan, controlled by the Warburgs, and a number of other members, three of which were tried and convicted as German war criminals for their crimes against humanity.
In 1939 under the Alted Agreement, Alcoa Aluminum (the leading producer of fluoride at that time), Colgate, DOW, Kellogg and Dupont signed cartel agreements with I.G. Farben. At the end of World War II, Charles Eliot Perkins took charge of the I.G. Farben chemical plants in Germany. There he was told by the German scientists that they had been involved in forced mass-medication of the German and Russian water supplies by adding (among other chemicals) sodium fluoride. He was told that this made the medicated population "stupid and docile" and that "fluoridation caused slight damage to a specific part of the brain, making it more difficult for the person affected to defend his freedom and causing the individual to become more docile towards authority". During that same year, Gerald J. Cox, employed by Alcoa, tested fluoride on rats to combat claims of damage produced by fluoridation. He concluded that fluoride reduced cavities and that it should be added to the nation's water supplies.
Before World War II, dental research was not a concern of the U.S. military, but by 1940, 400,00 potential recruits lacked the 6 opposing teeth required to "bite the cartridge" (a term used to describe biting open a paper cartridge containing gun powder and a musket ball in order to effectively reload a rifle).
During the post-war era, I.G. Farben was the first company to develop and process heroine and cocaine and developed organophosphate nerve agents including Zyklon-B extermination gas, Sarin and Soman nerve gasses. In 1947, Oscar R. Ewing, an Alcoa lawyer was appointed as head of the Federal Security Agency and during the next 3 years, 87 American cities added fluoride to their water supplies. This number includes the control city in a water fluoridation study in Michigan, thus ending that study before it was completed.
In a 1954 report entitled Fluoridation and Lawlessness, Charles Perkins stated the following on the subject of fluoridation:
"We are told by the fanatical ideologists who are advocating the fluoridation of the water supplies in this country that their purpose is to reduce the incidence of tooth decay in children, and it is the plausibility of this excuse, plus the gullibility of the public and the cupidity of public officials that is responsible for the present spread of artificial water fluoridation in this country.
"However - and I want to make this very definite and positive - the real reason behind water fluoridation is not to benefit children's teeth. If this were the real reason, there are many ways in which it could be done which are much easier, cheaper and far more effective. The real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the resistance of the masses to domination, control and loss of liberty."
"When the Nazis decided to go into Poland, the German General Staff and the Russian General Staff exchanged scientific and military ideas, plans and personnel. The scheme of mass control through water medication was seized upon by the Russian Communists because it fitted ideally into their plans to Communize the world. I say this in all earnestness and sincerity of a scientist who has spent nearly 20 years research into the chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology of fluorides. Any person who drinks artificially fluoridated water for a period of one year or more will never again be the same person, mentally or physically."
Up until this point, Fluoride was considered to be a hazardous waste material in the production of fertilizers, explosives and aluminum. It was expensive to dispose of properly and was a mounting concern for companies involved in the production of these products. Suddenly, the liability was transformed into an asset when fluoride began being used as the active ingredient in fluorinated pesticides, fungicides, rodenticides, anesthetics, tranquilizers, fluorinated pharmaceuticals, and a number of industrial and domestic products, fluorinated dental gels, rinses and toothpastes.
In “AIDS, Opium, Diamonds and Empire.” (2010 Universe publishing), Dr. Nancy T. Banks writes:
Fluoride weakens the immune system and may cause allergic type reactions… It causes birth defects and genetic damage, and because it can leach lead out of pipes, it can lead to lead toxicity which is characterized by anemia and mental retardation. Fluoride is likely to aggravate kidney disease, diabetes and hypothyroidism. Fluoride crosses the placenta… Ultramicroscopic study of embryonic brain tissue obtained from termination of pregnancy operations in endemic fluorosis areas showed ‘differentiation of brain nerve cells were poor and brain development was delayed’. In numerous animal studies, fluoride has been shown to decrease fertility.
Fluoride is a known endocrine disrupter, and fluoride preparations were used in the 1930s to treat overactive thyroid illnesses. Patients either drank fluoridated water, swallowed fluoride pills, or were bathed in fluoridated bath water; and their thyroid function was, as a result, greatly depressed. Fluoride is an enzyme poison. Enzymes are complex protein compounds that vastly speed up biological chemical reactions. Their optimal function is what maintains our health at the cellular level. More than 75 million Americans use some form of thyroid medication.
“Fluoride also causes the breakdown of collagen which results in wrinkling of the skin and the weakening of ligaments, tendons and muscles. When fluoride was left in the phosphate that was sold to farmers, it killed their crops and livestock… [a] lawsuit won by farmers [in New Jersey] did not stop industry from giving fluoride to humans –only livestock… At the cellular level, fluoride has been shown to release superoxide free radicals… In the 1970s fluoride was linked to an increase in cancer. Taylor and Taylor from the University of Texas published a study in 1965 that was based on millions of subjects and showed a 5 to 10 percent increase in cancer death rate within 3 to 5 years after fluoridation was put into the water.”
In 1986, the worldwide consumption of sodium fluoride was estimated at several million metric tons. Fluoride is still one of the strongest anti-psychotic chemicals known to man and is contained in 25% of major tranquilizers.
