FLUORIDE [Update] “Crystallizing Public Opinion” ~ “Propaganda” ~ “The Engineering of Consent” By Edward Bernays

Fluoride, Teeth, and the Atomic Bomb<<
Introduction to "Fluoride, Teeth, and the Atomic Bomb" from Waste Not #414 (September 1997) where the article was first published,


"....The report offers a glimpse into the history of fluoride, a bio-accumulative toxic that Americans ingest every day. The authors, Griffiths and Bryson, spent more than a year on research. With the belief that the information should be withheld no longer, the authors gave their report to Waste Not, and others, with a short note: "use as you wish."

.. The science of fluoridating public drinking water systems has been, from day one, shoddy at best. As we learn from this report, the basis of that science was rooted in protecting the U.S. Atomic bomb program from litigation. Americans have been convinced that fluoride will save their teeth and we drink more fluoridated water than any other nationality on earth. We learned about the dirty politics involved in the science and selling of fluoridation to a trusting public. We spent three months researching fluoride which resulted in the longest newsletter we've ever produced:

          Waste Not # 373. We learned that fluoride is a poison that accumulates in our bones. It has been associated with cancer in young males; osteoporosis; reduced I.Q.; and hip fractures in the elderly, to name a few. George Orwell would have been dazzled by the promotion of this toxic by dental and public health officials and concurrently, the avoidance of this issue by the environmental community. We think it has a lot to do with the sordid 50-year history of the promotion of fluoridation by the U.S. Department of Public Health and the American Dental Association. Rather than acknowledge the accumulating evidence of fluoride's threat to human health, they have en-trenched themselves in a position that has produced tactics that include the harassment of scientists and dentists who speak out."

.. A little sidebar here: Not many people are aware that Bernays was thick as thieves with governments around the world and especially the US government. Bernays was the primary consultant in selling public policy for the US government~
.. With regards to Hitler and the Third Reich, Bernays’ work was influential in “Mein Kampf” and Josef Goebbels' hate campaign against the Jews.

.. Bernays was also instrumental in stirring up public opinion against the Germans in America during World War One. He and a social psychologist named Walter Lippman played the key role in showing President Woodrow Wilson how to set up a secret body of “managers” to run the war effort along with a body of “advisors” to assist in decision-making.

.. It was the Creel Commission and stands as first committee of public opinion-makers to be set up in the United States.

.. Bernays was not just another glad-handing, pearly-toothed PR man brandishing a cheesy smile; he had solid connections all the way to the top.
.. So, I put myself in Bernays’ shoes when they called him to perform the feat of transforming rat poison into an elixir of life. I asked myself how exactly I would make people believe that rat poison is somehow something other than what it is.<<

  2. OREGON VOTERS VOTED NO TO FLUORIDE & THE CITY OF PORTLAND? Well Fluoride has been in the water since WWII, or before? Never know except for the criminally insane now at critical mass.
