Wrecked by fluoride

MagazineJuly 1999 (Vol. 10 Issue 4)Wrecked by fluoride

Iam horrified that the water supplies in inner city areas like Glasgow may be fluoridated

Iam horrified that the water supplies in inner city areas like Glasgow may be fluoridated. I have experienced horrendous reactions to fluoride since the age of 13, and so have my children. Tests in 1993 proved I have a deadly allergy to fluoride. The motility of my white blood cells was 42 per cent of the normal value due to long term exposure to fluoride, and when incubated for two hours with 1 ppm fluoride, motility was zero. Hence I had no immunity to infections.

In 1995, I was prescribed (heavily fluoridated) Prozac. Twenty minutes after taking one 20 mg capsule, I went into anaphylactic shock.

After taking Prozac, my older son developed tonsillitis, a chest infection, committed criminal assault (on provocation) and attacked a family member. He has no recollection of these events.

In 1993 my older daughter developed a near fatal acute inflammation/infection of the white matter of the brain and spinal cord and had two strokes, leaving her permanently disabled and with depression, diarrhoea and multiple infections. Dr Sheila Gibson of the Glasgow Homoeopathic Hospital NHS Trust confirmed that my daughter inherited my severe allergy to fluoride. Prior to this, she was exposed to fluoride in dental treatment, mouthwashes, toothpaste and natural sources, and when prescribed Prozac for depression, she developed full body fungal rash, gut cramps, worsening headaches and diarrhoea.

My two younger children developed severe behavioural and health problems after first use of fluoride toothpastes, including attention deficit hyperactivity type syndrome, chronic tonsillitis, diarrhoea and gut cramps, asthma like attacks, violence and even self harm. I have withdrawn all fluoride from my family since 1993. Any accidental exposure since has rendered my children extremely violent and ill. It took years for the effects to subside the longer they avoid fluoride, the calmer and healthier they remain.

We have survived by avoiding fluoride, but what will become of us if it is put into our water and we can no longer escape it? MM, Glasgow.......

Could dental treatment whilst breastfeeding have affected my children?
