Fluoride and the Atomic Bomb

Fluoride was unwittingly added to our water supply in the 1940’s, thanks to our government. How this happened is unthinkable. At the time, there wasn’t sufficient evidence to show what the long term effects of fluoride were, meanwhile it was being used as part of the chemical concoction for the atomic bomb.

A lot of the government documents surrounding the Manhattan Project are starting to become declassified and available to the public. One such document included information about the how some A-bomb program scientists had been ordered to provide “evidence useful in litigation” against the claims of fluoride being hazardous to american citizens. Amazingly enough, the first lawsuits against the Manhattan project were not over radiation, but over fluoride damage (1a).

Further reading included fluoride tests being done on hospital patients,without their consent, under the name of National Security. The former head of toxicology in Forsyth Dental Center had conducted studies in the early 1990’s that fluoride was a “powerful central nervous system (CNS) toxin, and might adversely affect human brain functioning, even at low doses. (New epidemiological evidence from China adds support, showing a correlation between low-dose fluoride exposure and diminished I.Q. in children.) “ (1b)

During the making of the atomic bomb, several factories were built in New Jersey manufacturing millions of pounds of fluoride. However farmers who lived nearby began suffering. Their crops were being destroyed, their health started to plummet, and their chickens and cattle could barely stand and were dying. The farmers waited until after the war to sue the Manhattan Project for fluoride damage. The government thought of this as a major inconvenience because it could impede the production of nuclear bombs and give them bad PR. In their own politically underhanded fashion, the government found a way of avoid litigation and cessation. (1c)
