Dr. Bronner’s Anti-Fluoride Letter

Have you ever seen or used Dr. Bronner’s soap in health food stores everywhere?  Coming from a heritage of soapmakers, his soaps are simple, pure without chemical additives or preservatives.  His company model is that his workers are well paid with a base and bonuses, and 70% of the company profits go to humanitarian projects around the world.

In 1952, he wrote a letter that was printed in the Catholic Mirror of Springfield, Massachusetts about the dangers of fluoride.  His letter:

“Fluoridation of our community water systems can well become their most subtle weapon for our sure physical and mental deterioration. …

“As a research chemist of established standing, I built within the past 22 years, 3 American chemical plants and licensed 6 of my 53 patents. Based on my years of practical experience in the health food and chemical field, let me warn: fluoridation of drinking water is criminal insanity, sure national suicide. Don’t do it.

“Even in small quantities, sodium fluoride is a deadly poison to which no effective antidote has been found. Every exterminator knows that it is the most efficient rat-killer. … Sodium fluoride is entirely different from organic calcium-fluoro-phosphate needed by our bodies and provided by nature, in God’s great providence and love, to build and strengthen our bones and our teeth. This organic calcium-fluoro-phosphate, derived from proper foods, is an edible organic salt, insoluble in water and assimilable by the human body, whereas the non-organic sodium fluoride used in fluoridating water is instant poison to the body and fully water-soluble. The body refuses to assimilate it.

“Careful, bonafide laboratory experimentation by conscientious, patriotic research chemists, and actual medical experience, have both revealed that instead of preserving or promoting ‘dental health,’ fluoridated drinking water destroys teeth, before adulthood and after, by the destructive mottling and other pathological conditions it actually causes in them, and also creates many other very grave pathological conditions in the internal organisms of bodies consuming it. How can it be called a “health” plan? What’s behind it?

“That any so-called “doctors” would persuade a civilized nation to add voluntarily a deadly poison to its drinking water systems is unbelievable. It is the height of criminal insanity.

“No wonder Hitler and Stalin fully believed and agreed from 1939 to 1941 that, quoting from both Lenin’s Last Will and Hitler’s Mein Kampf: 'America we shall demoralize, divide, and destroy from within.' …

“Are our Civil Defense organizations and agencies awake to the perils of water poisoning by fluoridation? Its use has been recorded in other countries. Sodium fluoride water solutions are the cheapest and most effective rat killers known to chemists: colorless, odorless, tasteless – no antidote, no remedy, no hope: Instant and complete extermination of rats. …

“Fluoridation of water systems can be slow national suicide, or quick national liquidation. It is criminal insanity–treason!” Dr. E.H. Bronner, Mfg. Research Chemist, Los Angeles. (Founder of Dr. Bronner’s Soap Company)

As you can see from my past News Tips, fluoride is not the tooth benefit that dentists claim.  Fluoridating the drinking water is a political action accomplished for a variety of reasons.  While it is important to become active against fluoridation in your community, it is a matter of personally protecting yourself and your loved ones from the damage it causes.
