TROJAN PLAYERS AWAIT THE ARRIVAL OF TEAMMATE DAN BERDAN, far right, who ripped a two-run home run in the first inning of their 5-4 win over the Ashby Arrows on Monday, April 12 at Trojan Field. Trojans pound out 15 hits in Wellness Solutions Chance Haugen, D.C. What are We Drinking? Fluoride is added to the water sup- ply of most American cities for the pur- pose of dental hygiene. Fluorine is an element. It is a gas, never occurring in its free state. In microscopic amounts combined with other minerals it is often listed as a trace mineral, a nutri- ent for human nutrition. This has noth- ing to do with fluoride or fluoridation. The fluoride added to 90 percent of drinking water is hydrofluoric acid which is a compound of fluorine. It is a chemical byproduct of aluminum, steel, cement, phosphate, and nuclear weapons manufacturing. Such fluoride is manmade. In this form, fluoride has no nutritional value whatsoever. It is one of the most corrosive industrial chemicals. Fluoride is also the active toxin in rat poisons and cockroach powder. Hydrofluoric acid is used to refine high octane gasoline, to make fluoro- carbons and chlorofluorocarbons for freezers and air conditioners, and to manufacture computer screens, fluo- rescent light bulbs, semiconductors, plastics, herbicides, -- and toothpaste. Once in the body, fluoride is a de- stroyer of human enzymes. It does this by changing their shapes. Enzymes are necessary for various essential cell re- actions that take place every second we're alive. Research shows that fluoride may formation in the blood, depresses thy- roid activity, promotes the develop- ment of bone cancer, causes premature aging of the human body, and that the contents of a family size fluoridated toothpaste is enough to kill a 25 pound child. Again, when enzymes get twisted out of shape, they can't do their jobs. This results in collagen break- down, eczema, tissue damage, skin' wrinkling, genetic damage, and im- mune suppression. Practically any dis- ease you can name may then be caused. You don't have to look very far at home to see that fluoride is a toxic sub- stance. Just check the back of your toothpaste. The FDA required all toothpaste manufacturers to print a warning on the label that if more than a pea-sized amount of toothpaste is swallowed, the local Poison Control Center should be notified. But here is the kicker- this is the same amount of fluoride you find in eight oz of water. Yet toothpaste carries a "Do not swal- low" warning, whereas you're typi- cally told to drink eight oz glasses of water each day, without any concern for the amount of fluoride you will in- gest. Most fluoridated water supplies contain fluoride concentrations of 1.0 milligrams per liter, meaning that an adult male would need to drink less than a gallon of water per day to reach toxic levels. An iodine-deficient male would need to drink less than a liter. Depending on the source, water fluoridation has been said to reduce tooth decay by anywhere from 20 to 80 percent. But when you compare the statistics between different countries, you see that no matter whether they fluoridate their water or not, tooth deray has Steadily been reduced by the same amount. Likewise, when you compare states in the U.S., you find that increased amounts of fluoride in the drinking water make no difference. We have the same amount of good healthy teeth, regardless of water fluor- idation. According to the Taylor Study at the University of Austin, fluoride con- centration of one PPM (parts per mil- lion) increases tumor growth rate by 25 percent. Another study by the Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products found that fluoride is more poisonous than lead, and just a little less poison- ous than arsenic. The only known way to remove flu- oride from water is by using a reverse osmosis filter. A simple carbon filter will not remove fluoride. Remember to filter not only the water that you drink, but also the water you use to wash veg- etables, make ice cubes, and cook with. You should also remember to use flu- oride free toothpaste. win over CGB last week The Trojan baseball team ran their record to 3-3, winning one and losing two this past week.
