Fluorides, the atomic bomb, and fake news

Faced with toxic fluorides destroying food crops, animal and human life, and with law suits piling up, atomic scientists decided they could distract the nation by promoting fluorides as a beneficial tooth treatment…

Occasionally, I reprint this article. I wrote it some years ago, during research on toxic chemicals pervading the landscape. I used to send the piece to mainstream reporters, but I eventually gave that up as a bad bet.

They’re dedicated to fake news…and now they’re losing control over public consciousness. Losing badly. Independent media are in the ascendance, and rightly so.

In 1997, Joel Griffiths and Chris Bryson, two respected mainstream journalists, peered into an abyss. They found a story about fluorides that was so chilling it had to be told.

The Christian Science Monitor, who had assigned the story, never published it.

Their ensuing article, “Fluoride, Teeth, and the Atomic Bomb,” has been posted on a number of websites.

Author Griffiths told me that researchers who study the effects of fluorides by homing in on communities with fluoridated drinking water, versus communities with unfluoridated water, miss a major point: studying the water is not enough; toxic fluorides are everywhere—they are used throughout the pharmaceutical industry in the manufacture of drugs, and also in many other industries (e.g., aluminum, pesticide).

I want to go over some of the major points of the Griffiths-Bryson article.

Griffiths discovered hundreds of documents from the World War 2 era. These included papers from the Manhattan Project, launched to build the first A-bomb.

Griffiths/Bryson write: “Fluoride was the key chemical in atomic bomb production…millions of tons…were essential for the manufacture of bomb-grade uranium and plutonium for nuclear weapons throughout the Cold War.”

The documents reveal that fluoride was the most significant health hazard in the US A-bomb program, for workers and for communities around the manufacturing facilities.

Griffiths/Bryson: “Much of the original proof that fluoride is safe for humans in low doses was generated by A-bomb program scientists, who had been secretly ordered to provide ‘evidence useful in litigation’ [against persons who had been poisoned by fluoride and would sue for damages]… The first lawsuits against the US A-bomb program were not over radiation, but over fluoride damage, the [government] documents show.”

A-bomb scientists were told they had to do studies which would conclude that fluorides were safe.

The most wide-reaching study done was carried out in Newburgh, New York, between 1945 and 1956. This was a secret op called “Program F.” The researchers obtained blood and tissue samples from people who lived in Newburgh, through the good offices of the NY State Health Department.

Griffiths/Bryson found the original and secret version of this study. Comparing it to a different sanitized version, the reporters saw that evidence of adverse effects from fluorides had been suppressed by the US Atomic Energy Commission.

Other studies during the same period were conducted at the University of Rochester. Unwitting hospital patients were given fluorides to test out the results.

Flash forward. Enter Dr. Phyllis Mullenix (see also here), the head of toxicology at Forsyth Dental Center in Boston. In the 1990s, Mullenix did a series of animal studies which showed that, as Griffiths/Bryson write: “…fluoride was a powerful central nervous system (CNS) toxin…”

Mullenix applied for further grant monies from the National Institutes of Health. She was turned down. She was also told that fluorides do not have an effect on the CNS.

But Griffiths/Bryson uncovered a 1944 Manhattan Project memo which states: “Clinical evidence suggests that uranium hexafluoride may have a rather marked central nervous system effect…it seems most likely that the F [fluoride] component rather than the [uranium] is the causative factor.”

The 1944 memo was sent to the head of the Manhattan Project Medical Section, Colonel Stafford Warren. Warren was asked to give his okay to do animal studies on fluorides’ effects on the CNS. He immediately did give his approval.

But records of the results of this approved project are missing. Most likely classified.

Who was the man who made that 1944 proposal for a rush-program to study the CNS effects of fluorides? Dr. Harold Hodge, who worked at the Manhattan Project.

Who was brought in to advise Mullenix 50 years later at the Forsyth Dental Center in Boston, as she studied the CNS effects of fluorides? Dr. Harold Hodge.

Who never told Mullenix of his work on fluoride toxicity for the Manhattan Project? Dr. Harold Hodge.

Was Hodge brought in to look over Mullenix’s shoulder and report on her discoveries? It turns out that Hodge, back in the 1940s, had made suggestions to do effective PR promoting fluoride as a dental treatment. So his presence by Mullenix’s side, all those years later, was quite possibly as an agent assigned to keep track of her efforts.

Getting the idea here? Build an A-bomb. Forget the toxic fluoride consequences. Bury the fluoride studies. Twist the studies.

More on Hodge. In 1944, “a severe pollution incident” occurred in New Jersey, near the Du Pont plant in Deepwater where the company was trying to build the first A-bomb. A fluoride incident. Farmers’ peach and tomato crops were destroyed. Horses and cows became crippled. Some cows had to graze on their bellies. Tomato crops (normally sold to the Campbell Company for soups) were contaminated with fluorides.

The people of the Manhattan Project were terrified of lawsuits and ensuing revelations about the toxic nature of their work. A heads-up memo was written on the subject. Its author? Harold Hodge. Among other issues, he reported on the huge fluoride content in vegetables growing in the polluted area.

Also the high fluoride levels in human blood.

The farmers began to bring lawsuits. Big PR problem.

The lawsuits were settled quietly, for pittances.

Harold Hodge wrote another memo. Get this quote: “Would there be any use in making attempts to counteract the local fear of fluoride on the part of residents [near the A-bomb facility]…through lectures on F [fluoride] toxicology and perhaps the usefulness of F in tooth health?”

Griffiths/Bryson write: “Such lectures were indeed given, not only to New Jersey citizens but to the rest of the nation throughout the Cold War.”

This was a launching pad for fluorides as “successful dental treatments.”

Now you know why promoting toxic fluorides as a dental treatment was so important to government officials.

Footnote: In Stanley Kubrick’s 1964 film, Dr. Strangelove, Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper rails about the destruction fluorides are wreaking on the “pure blood of pure Americans.” Of course, General Ripper is fleshed out as a crazy right-wing fanatic. He’s ready and willing to start a nuclear war. How odd. Apparently unknown to the Strangelove script writers, fluorides were, in fact, very toxic and were an integral part of the program that created atomic bombs in the first place…

    Glad to see you return to this topic. Until I began reading your work, I’d thought the lie about fluoride was begun by the aluminum industry, seeking a way to dispose of a by-product of manufacturing. The truth is much worse–betrayal by our own government.

    Once we step foot on that road the-ends-justify-the-means by compromising our ethics, evil occurs. This is the same mentality of pharma execs who dismiss vaccine damage as mere “collateral damage” for the good of all.

    Wow… of course its hard not to know something about this fluoride thing but I know very little about it. Most of the little I know actually comes from Dr. Strangelove… I found another interesting comment on another site (http://faroutradio.com/stanley-kubrick-warned-of-fluoride-evils-50-years-ago/) about the movie and the fluoride thing:

    “What’s so unfortunate is that because General Jack D. Ripper’s character and performance is so BAT SHIT CRAZY, what he was saying sounds like LUNACY and was most likely dismissed and completely ignored by most viewers when the movie first came out. “Crazy talk!” is probably what nearly everyone thought.

    One of the things Jay Weidner points out in his talks about Kubrick’s films is that Stanley had an IQ of 200 and just about EVERYTHING in his films is there for a reason. What was Stanley trying to warn us about in this and every scene? Now that you know that, you will never watch a Stanley Kubrick film the same again.”

    Now fluoride is used to enrich uranium and concentrate the u-235 isotope… something I didn’t know… and also appears in the atomic waste products. There was apparently a lot to get rid of after the war and later… Kubrick I suspect was too smart not to know some of these details.

    Though the film is a chilling and absurd portrayal of a possibility it was to many of us only tongue in cheek; but to a few of us we could see Kubrick was trying to make a profound point about life on earth… couched in a way that made it possible to reach many many people.

    I do suspect Kubrick meant for General Rippers comments to be taken by many with a grain of salt but perhaps for those of us that could see the underlying seriousness of his work… maybe he meant for us to also take a second look at the fluoride controversy. There doesn’t seem to be too much controversial now about this topic … your article contains the truth of it…. thanks!!

    You can buy a counter top water distiller to remove fluoride from your drinking water.,..and in fact it is a good idea because GLYPHOSATE (Round-up) has ALSO been ending up in the water supply..(and in fact in human breast milk)

    I have often wondered if there was any causal connection between fluoridation and arterial plaque.

    The other thing i wonder about is the Fluoride in tea..and whether it is as dangerous as that put in the water..

    Also, since it is a CNS stimulant, i wonder if could exacerbate PTSD… i know that many of these kids involved in school shootings have been bullied and have PTSD..they are put on antidepressants, many of which have Fluoride in large amounts..
    It just makes me wonder.

    • Kenneth T. says:

      I’d love to get an inline “Berkey system”, but so far my stand alone system will suffice.

    • Elisa says:

      arterial plaque:
      try to live on exclusively animal fat and consume just as much oil as you can get from chewing almonds. Eat exclusively raw milk products (or no milk or just kefir). Drink a lot of kefir (full fat).
      I smoke (a lot) but when i changed diet to what i wrote, cold feet disappeared within a few month, i have no problems with blood flow because of it i think my arteries are clear enough. Try. Fluoride can be blamed for many illnesses but I think arteries is due to pateruised / homogenized milk product, margarins and that terrible amount of oil people consume (even on salads) instead of eating real fats.

      • NaturalWoman says:

        Elisa, do you have a source for fresh, organic almonds? Here in the US, they are irradiated and they do not have to tell consumers about it. I’d love to be able to get quality almonds.

        • See “Organic Pastures” for truly raw organic almonds:

          • NaturalWoman says:

            Thanks, Chef Jemichel, I’ve sent them an email through their contact form. However, I see that they are based in CA, where all almonds are supposed to be irradiated and they legally can hide this from consumers. Fingers crossed that I find a clean source.

          • Good to hear of your outreach!

            The governmental attacks against real milk have been well over 10 x more intense than anything against almond growers and Mark McAfee (Organic Pastures founder) has successfully withstood all of that! …

            If there are any doubts about this the farm is open for visits! However it may be a lot easier to just soak some of the almonds and let them sprout! (Actually it is generally recommended to pre-soak all nuts and seeds! ; ~ )

          • NaturalWoman says:

            Chef, I just heard back–very quickly–from Org Pastures and it is just as I said. Almonds produced in the Us must be pasteurized when sold to a processor. You can buy direct from a farm, but this is pretty much impossible due to regulations. If you know of such a farm, I’d love to connect to them. In the meantime, I rarely have almonds, which are health-producing until processed, like everything else. In fact, I suspect that almonds’ amazing properties are the true reason behind the damaging irradiation. If it were truly a good thing, the powers-that-be would be proud to have it on the label.

          • Thanks for this update!

            Re: “when sold to a processor” – are you a “processor”? ………
            If not then is there any lawful reason why you can’t purchase non-pasteurized almonds? ………

            In any case – I have sent in my own inquiry to OP asking for their verification of their legal requirement and as well as the source for that so that I can research this further. (Researching is one of my functions and so I am happy to look into this for you and all concerned.)

            Since I was originally aware of this issue several years ago (when the almond industry was in the process of launching their legal coercion) I no longer have my final notes (at my fingertips) on this particular issue – and so I am truly grateful to revisit it now!

      • Good suggestion, Elisa! –

        Homogenization is worse than pasteurization for the following reason:

        “Homogenization was developed to basically integrate butterfat into the milk so that you couldn’t tell the butterfat level. … the way that you get rid of that butterfat cell, a beautiful, floaty, soft-like marshmallow-looking wonderful sphere, is to send it through a high pressure collision with a stainless steel plate at about five to six-thousand pounds per square inch. Which obliterates it into little smithereens.

        It’s no longer even recognized by your body. It becomes an allergenic, stick-in-every-crevice and it can’t be digested! It releases xanthine oxidase. It does all kinds of weird things, that your body doesn’t know what to do with it.

        You get all kinds of disease processes out of that. … the placquing process, how the assimilation or digesting process is completely messed up. But it is not a normal process.” – Mark McAfee in “Raw Milk: The Whole Truth”:

    THIS IS FLUORIDE AWARENESS WEEK: We are being Drugged without our Consent!

    ”EVERY DRUG” increases and complicates the patients condition… read the side effects/affects list” Robert Henderson M.D.

    Drugs never cure disease. They merely hush the voice of nature’s protest, and pull down the danger signals she erects along the pathway of transgression. Any POISON TOXIN taken into the system has to be reckoned with later on even though it palliates present symptoms. Pain may disappear, but the patient is left in a worse condition, though unconscious of it at the time” Daniel H. Kress, M.D.

    You are already aware that, though it might be added to supply reservoirs, I do not believe fluoride in water is distributed to households. Or, rather, I didn’t believe that.

    I hadn’t read this article before or, perhaps, I couldn’t recall reading it. What’s “between the lines” is all important here. If fluorides of various categories are compounded in pesticides and other atmospheric waste chemicals, it would be reasonable to presume particles (in great quantity, I might add) would contaminate any water supply directly exposed.

    There are no reservoirs segregated from nature or the atmosphere to my knowledge, which means all water supplies are “theoretically” contaminated. This would mean fluorides that originate from atmospheric pollution are blamed on the useless barrels of chemicals water boards routinely dump into lakes in order to remove focus from the real issue….

    Sound familiar?
