Flouride and Autism

Fluoride is recognized as Toxic by the National Research Council of Canada. The waste Hexafluorosilicic acid from phosphate fertilizer manufacturers like Mosaic or Nutrien is disposed of directly to drinking water or converted to granular sodium silico fluoride. This product is not the naturally occurring calcium fluoride – which is also damaging and toxic above 4 parts per million. Calcium fluoride is much safer to handle and stable unlike the waste stream compound mentioned earlier. The toxic waste is highly reactive with everything it touches. This is the nature of the fluorine atom. It is the most reactive element in the periodic table. As such it readily combines with aluminium and lead and this is of particular concern for children. Fluoride can cross the blood brain barrier and act as a pathway for aluminium and lead into the developing brain at far greater rates than compared to aluminium or lead alone. Aluminium, lead and fluoride itself are recognized as neurotoxins. For children and the fluoride sensitive, the chronic damage and inflammation is another pathway of damage. Gut health is crucial and fluoride is no friend the delicate bacterial biome of the intestine. Fluoride acts as a barrier-breaking agent, over time resulting in a compromised gut lining or what is commonly referred to as ‘leaky gut’. Fluoride also interferes with acid secretion and bacteria in the gut. This alteration to the gut biome profile increases the risk of developing ulcers and affect nutrition.A large portion of Fluoride consumed is converted to Hydrogen Fluoride upon contact with the gastric juices. Hydrogen Fluoride is highly toxic and an additional irritant to the body. Damage to the gastrointestinal tract caused by low level exposure to Fluoride has been studied for a very long time [Roholm 1937] and has prompted numerous national governments to ban or prevent the practice of Fluoridation [Quebec 1979]. It is recognized as a problem by numerous organizations involved in public health protection [UNICEF 1999, NRC 2006, WHO 2014].
