Fluoride is an element from the halogen group same as iodide and chloride. It is commonly used as an additive in toothpastes and some mouthwashes, as a tooth decay preventive ingredient. It is also found in our drinking water and excessively used in some popular infant juices.
According to the Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products Handbook, fluoride is more poisonous than lead and just slightly less poisonous than arsenic. It is a cumulative poison that accumulates in the body especially the bones over the years. In hypersensitive humans it can cause skin eruptions, gastric distress, headache, and weakness. These hypersensitive reactions usually disappear after discontinuation of the fluoride. In some studies, fluoride has been found to lower IQ.
A study by Procter and Gamble showed that as little as half the amount of fluoride used to fluoridate public water supplies resulted in a sizable and significant increase in genetic damage, and was linked to cancer deaths (Dr. Dean Burk, head of the cytochemistry division of the National Cancer Institute).
Fluoride even at small dosages of 1 part per million, which is found in artificially fluoridated water, damage the immune system, can inhibit enzyme systems, and contribute to calcification of soft tissues, worsen arthritis and cause dental fluorosis in children.
“I am appalled at the prospect of using water as a vehicle for drugs. Fluoride is a corrosive poison that will produce serious effects on a long range basis. Any attempt to use water this way is deplorable.” – Dr. Charles Gordon Heyd, Past President of the American Medical Association.

At birth, babies with Prader-Willi syndrome are usually small and floppy, with low muscle tone, and have problems feeding. They may have small hands and feet, and boys may have undescended testicles. The babies are slow to start walking and poor motor skills may persist into adult life.
After about six months to a year, especially as the child becomes mobile, they develop an interest in food that may become an insatiable obsession. Weight gain can be rapid, leading to severe obesity that results in diabetes, strain on the heart, lungs and skeleton, and even early death.
Other symptoms can include:
People with Prader-Willi syndrome often have obsessive-compulsive behaviour – they may hoard possessions and show repetitive habits such as picking at skin or hair. They are unsettled by changes in routine and can show unpredictable rages and aggression. Some individuals are more severely affected than others.
Some people have also noticed that children with Prader-Willi syndrome may be unusually blonde and blue-eyed.
