Nearly all conventional food crops grown with fluoride-laced water, then sprayed with more fluoride

pesticides fluoride

The average American today is exposed to a whole lot more fluoride than he or she is probably aware. Conventional produce, it turns out, is one of the most prevalent sources of fluoride exposure besides fluoridated water, as conventional crops are not only irrigated with fluoride-laced water in many cases, but also sprayed with pesticide and herbicide chemicals that have been blended with fluoride, and later processed once again with fluoridated water.

This fact may come as a surprise to many who have bought into the idea that eating more fresh produce is automatically beneficial for health, regardless of how that produce was grown. Thinking that they are doing their bodies a favor, millions of Americans have incorporated conventional fruits and vegetables into their everyday diets, not realizing that the resulting cumulative effect of fluoride exposure from these foods could be harming their health.

Many food crops uptake fluoride chemicals from water, soil

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 75 percent of the U.S. population is being forcibly medicated with fluoride chemicals via their water supplies. This means that a significant percentage of U.S. crops are also irrigated using this same fluoridated water, particularly in the “Bread Belt” states, many of which are almost entirely fluoridated. (http://www.cdc.gov/fluoridation/statistics/2010stats.htm)

While not all crops uptake fluoride from water in the same amounts, many absorb significant amounts of fluoride through their root systems every time they are watered. Tea plants, for instance, are among the worst when it comes to absorbing fluoride from soil and water, and storing it in their leaves (http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/infocenter/phytochemicals/tea/). Grapes are another crop that tends to accumulate fluoride in high levels as well.

According to data collected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for its National Fluoride Database of Selected Beverages and Foods, fresh fruits and vegetables have relatively low levels of fluoride compared to what is found in fluoridated water, reconstituted juices, dried fruit, and other sources (http://www.fluoridealert.org/content/fresh_foods/). But levels can vary, and particularly in the case of conventional produce, fluoridated pesticides and herbicides can add to overall fluoride exposure and intake levels.

Fluoridated pesticide, herbicide residues often lurk on conventional food

Because of its extreme toxicity, fluoride is often added to pesticides and herbicides in order to protect conventional crops from insect damage and disease. But just like with fluoridated irrigation water, fluoridated crop chemicals often absorb directly into plants, or at the very least, linger on the skins of the fruits and vegetables they produce, which adds to their fluoride toxicity.

Sulfuryl fluoride is one such pesticide that is commonly used to treat conventional cereal grains, dried fruit, tree nuts, cocoa beans, coffee beans, and other foods. Though the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is said to currently be in the process of phasing out the use of sulfuryl fluoride (http://www.ewg.org/release/epa-bar-fluoride-based-pesticide), the chemical is still being used on a wide variety of conventional food crops, unbeknownst to consumers.

There are, in fact, more than 150 different fluoridated pesticides currently approved for use on conventional crops, none of which are typically indicated on produce labels. Chances are that if you eat conventional fruit, vegetables, or nuts, you are more than likely eating varieties that have been sprayed or fumigated with fluoride chemicals, which are prohibited from use on organic crops.

As we reported on recently, conventional grapes are often sprayed with the fluoride-based chemical pesticide cryolite, which is often sold under the trade name Kryocide. This particular pesticide actually contains substances that facilitate the passing of fluoride across the blood-brain barrier and directly into brain tissue, which makes it exceptionally toxic.

This compounded exposure to fluoride from fluoridated irrigation water, fluoridated pesticides and herbicides, airborne fluoride chemicals, and fluoridated water used during processing or reconstitution after harvest renders many conventional fruits and vegetables fluoride saturated.

Admittedly, many organic crops are also exposed to fluoride via irrigated water just like conventional crops are. But at least organic crops are not sprayed with fluoridated pesticides after harvest, and many organic foods are processed after harvest using purified water, as indicated on their ingredient labels, which means they contain less overall fluoride than their conventional counterparts.

The Fluoride Action Network (FAN) has also created a helpful guide entitled 7 Ways to Avoid Fluoride in Beverages and Food that will help you discern how best to avoid fluoride when shopping for other types of food: http://www.fluoridealert.org/content/grocery_guide/

  1. UN Agenda 21 to exterminate most of the population in process. . Its quite clear the euganists nazis are in power in USA and the rest of the world. You can kill a person with a Colgate tootpaste tube. USA should be called United Satan of America when I think about all the pure evil emanating of corporations like Monsanto. Check fluoride. It is a violent enzymes inhibitor like cobalt 60 with food irradiation and like industrial sugar, industrial salt, dead white flour laced with chlorine. ALL substances in food contribute to destroys all vitamins, all enzymes and render the liver completely toxic and the pancreas totally out of order. You have a plus with fluoride. These nazis dumb down thу brains of people and give them cancers. Very lucrative for the US and european cancer racket. Adolf Hitler and Staline massively used fluoride in their concentration camps. There is no difference today maybe except the genocide is made slowly. And suddenly you wake up after 10 years with a virulent cancer and you are to dumb to know who did it to you. It is not science fiction.

    • Marc Authier, while I’m not in 100% Agreeance with you in regards to agenda 21 as I have read it my self and the United nations probably just as much be victims of this as we are and need to be more careful about what products or methods they are recommending given that check book science is probably one of the biggest threats to humanity if not the worst given check book science seems to be all the rage today ever since it started gaining a faster momentive spin thanks to the tobacco industries now and historically and most of our issues are caused by check book science put forward by the industries creating the products or methods we use today. the people involved probably read this non-scientific marketing science like it is gospel and then base there policy and agendas on this bad science. sometimes its always good to take a step back and view the big picture….I’m aware that Alex Jones (I will use Alex Jones as a example ) or people similar to him like to put there christian spin on things and really hype things up and while I encourage people like him to really get some of that news out there I think there are some areas where he just needs to reevaluate and take a step backwards just to take in potential variables that he may have missed and to also make sure he takes a non-biased look at things more often then not because currently he is more likely to shape things around his religious beliefs. good guy without a doubt and I command his work on the truth….but I could easily nominate someone with a more healthy holistic mindset that would give more reliable interpretations on such things rather then put a idealistic and or religious spin on it. so far at this time, I see evil men using corporations to paralyses Governments, cause wars, depopulate, profits, power monopolies etc etc, and so far all i see is countries killing each other and failing to comply with UN international Law on a daily basis, things like this paint a bigger picture? at the end of the day if the UN ends up being the good guys after you tarnished them for being the bad guys then your going to feel pretty dumb are you not? so just pace your self and think more instead of just taking in what people say as gospel and allowing the idea to completely indoctrinate your mind and consume you, because then you will not be open to the possibility to a more perfect truth because you have shut up shop with what could potentially be a partial truth or not the truth at all. friendly advice is all..take it or leave it! peace!
