Fluorides, the atomic bomb, and a spy

Fluorides, the Atomic bomb, and a spy

by Jon Rappoport

April 27, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

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 websites, sometimes with distortions, deletions, or additions. I spoke with Griffiths, and he told me to be careful I was reading a correct copy of his piece. (You can find it—“Fluoride, Teeth, and the Atomic Bomb,” at fluoridealert.org.)

Griffiths also 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: 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, which was 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.”

So 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 any 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.

power outside the matrix

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.”

In the film, Dr. Strangelove, Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper rails about the destruction fluorides are wreaking on the “pure blood of pure Americans.” Of course, this character is fleshed out as some kind of far-right-wing fanatic. How odd that he and other military men in the movie are, in fact, ready and willing to start a nuclear war. Odd because, unknown to the Strangelove script writer, fluorides were, in fact, very toxic and were an integral part of the very program that created atomic bombs.

    Harold Hodge headed the Manhattan Project. He personally conducted experiments on unknowing patients of Rochester Hospital, injecting them with uranium containing syringes and then monitoring the effects. He was America’s Mengele, a truly wicked beast in human clothing. Any “science” that has ever been connected to him should be automatically suspect.

  2. I am not yet convinced of “doom” here, Jon.

    Agreed, though you don’t mention it, fluoride appears to do nothing [positive] for teeth, so certain [brave] professionals question why it is used.

    As mentioned on the other post, as I understand it, fluoride has the effect of calcifying (coating) the brain which limits or stops neural processes. Yeah, that would deeply impact the “central nervous system”.

    I didn’t know fluoride was used in atomic weapons production, but it wouldn’t surprise me as I think it was one of the nasties in IG Farben’s “bag of tricks”. Did people breath in large amounts of fluoride particles? How did the bombs contaminate?

    Now, the pharma-pesticides angle is most important. “Autism” is a neuron-communication problem. There may well be an association here, in my opinion, as a humble layman. My “sources” have been persistent in their assessment that the “vaccines problem (mis)identification” is a cover for something much, much darker, but they will not reveal the truth….yet.

    The 1944 DuPont disaster happened two towns away from me & just before I was born there, it surprised me, how this is only the second time I caught wind of this, & now I have to realize how diabolical the system is to have obscured this from my prying eyes & ears.

    I’m of the opinion that truth will win out in the overall.
    So keep up the good fight … I’ll always be proud of you Jon.

    For your entertainment…
    Fluorine a gas at room temperature, it is deadly to humans, an extreme poison. It is the basis of Fluoride, a stable solid in the form of a salt. Stable but still highly reactive and toxic.

    Flouride in water, and Aluminum in vaccines combine to create Aluminum Fluoride; in later life they create Alzheimer’s disease, without a doubt.

    The Fluorine carbon bond is the strongest organic bond in nature, that is why fluorocarbon are so persistent in the environment, and extremely toxic to the Central Nervous System of mammalian life.

    Fluorine the basis of fluoride has the highest electronegativity of any element on the periodic scale.

    That means that it attracts electrons. Imagine what it does when it enters the human body, it reacts, attracts and bonds.

    In fact when it enters the human body is reacts to make other compounds. And whatever it react with, it makes that element inert; meaning whatever that element was doing before being bound to fluoride, it is no longer relevant. it has stopped. It is inactive. If that is the carbon atoms in a nerve cell, or bones…well. You have to think here, exercise your mind and visualize.

    Aluminum is the only metal that is really impervious to Fluorine, aluminum is made using Flourine as a catalyst. Aluminum is the only metal the human body doesn’t use, and yet it remains, stays in the human body when it reacts with fluoride, because of electonegativity. Aluminium Fluoride is made from this reaction.

    Flourine the lightest of the halogens is used in your refrigerator to cool it, in your antidepressants, it is even used as a blood substitute, a surrogate for real blood, believe ot not.

    Fluorine and carbon in a highly specialized bond produces Teflon, PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene). And the infamous PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic acid) C8. Teflon does not belong near food, to cook it is insane.

    Teflon the most stable compound in the environment is the most toxic brain poison that is known. It can cross the blood-brain barrier. It is very stable as a fluorocarbon, and persists and will never leave. Teflon is applied to Aluminum frying pans…thats a joke, of the highest order.

    All the halogens, Fluorine, Chlorine, Bromine, Iodine, Astatine are used in the manufacture of food, food presevation, in our drinking water and even used to cure the cancers that they cause. That’s another joke of the highest order.

    The Halogens: Fluorine, Chlorine, Bromine, Iodine, Astatine. What are their real purpose? All of the Halogens are used in human life…life…hm…death.

    FLUORINE, I have spoke about in the above. Fluorine means to flow, as in flowing water.  Fluorine is used to make refrigerants, surrogate blood,  it is in your inhaler for asthma. Aluminum could not be made without it. It is in  baby food and yet the Fluorine atom is so rare in this solar system, but so abundant here on earth. Why do you think that is? Flourine is in agrichemicals, pesticides and herbicides. Eight of the top ten drugs on the world market are fluorine based.

    CHLORINE, mean pale green, a gas, the second lightest, and third highest in electronegativity (and we know about elecronnegativity) of the halogens. It was used as a gas to kill soldiers in the first world war. Free chlorine is rare on planet earth. Nature does not make it…Used in the production of household bleaches it is a disinfectant, killing bacteria on contact. Imagine what it does to your body’s probiotic system. It is also used in swimming pools as an antibacterial and to kill algae. We swim in it, that’s another joke. Plastics could not be made without chlorine. Chlorine is implicit in ozone depletion in the upper atmosphere, as CFC’s. Chlorine is highly toxic and a deadly poisonous. Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is made from chlorine, it is used to make windows and doors, plastic packaging, plastic bottles. And drinking water pipes.

    BROMINE, meaning stench, is the third lightest halogen, and third highest in electronegativity, it is highly toxic and corrosive. Free Bromine is virtually non existent on the planet. Used in high quantities in the production of fire retardants. Strangely sunlight reacting on these compounds free the bromine atoms from them, releasing them into the environment which also deplete ozone, a vital layer of the aupper atmosphere for the protection of mammalian life from dangerous ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Bromine is used in headache medicine, and used as a sedative, it is also used in photographic film and in oil well drilling fluids and hydro fracking fluids. Bromine has no function in the human body. It has a niche in medicine as an antiepileptics. Bromine is in your Mountain Dew and other soft drinks. Vinyl siding could not be made without Bromine, used in the production of many plastics. Bromine in the form of ethylene bromide is used as a gasoline additive.

    IODINE, meaning violet, is the  fourth in the group of halogens. It is the heaviest element used in widely in biological function. It is rare in the earth’s crust, which only adds to its deficiency in humans. Deficiency is the leading cause of intellectual deficiency. The can be fooled by other halogens, as having the same nature as Iodine. The Halogens are similar in atomic structure. Iodine is a disenfectant, it is needed by your thyroid, Iodine is used in nutrition. Naturally can be gained by eating seaweed. a specific type and amount of Iodine is needed in the human body.  It is good for you. A synthetic version is used in table salt, it is highly suspect. Iodine is used to block Iodine -131, an isotope which is deadly to the body as radioactive fallout. Iodine is used medically as an expectorant. The world human population is estimated to be about 90% deficient of natural Iodine…stranely. There is a strong connection between brest cancer and Iodine deficiency, stomach cancer and an Iodine deficiency. Iodine is used in making Thyroid hormones vital to human health, growth, maturation, immunity, metabolism, protein synthetises. Iodine is used in photographic silver iodide. In weather modification, and cloud seeding. Iodine has an essential role with Selenium, and Selenium is needed in the removal of heavy metals from the body.

    ASTATINE, meaning unstable, the heaviest of the halogens is a dangerous and radioactive substance. And is the rarest natural element on the planet. It is a decay of heavier elements, uranium, thorium among others. Having many isotopes (39), its most stable is Astatine-210, which has a radioactive half-life of 8.1 hours. Astatine, strangely has not been viewed as an element because of its radioactivity, it evaporates of so quickly. It is believed it is a metal. Astatine is an extremely rare thing to be found in nature. It is estimated that there is roughly about 1 gram available naturally at any given time. Neither Astatine-210 and 211 occur naturally they are sythenthized by bombarding Bismuth-209 with alpha particles. Astatine is mainly used in nuclear medicine, to cure cancer, that is another joke, almost cosmic.. The isotopes are expensive and dangerous to make.  And when viewed generally, have little more than a 2% success rate in the treatment of cancer. Astatine -211 is only different from Iodine-131 also used in nuclear medicine, in that Iodine -131 emits beta particles. Beta particles can be driven deeper into tissue. Whereas the alpha particles will have a finite penetrations. Which is useful in concentrated in a specific area of the cancer body. Astatine is extremely toxic, radioactive and deadly to the human body. It makes no sense to put it there. As a cure? It is very expensive and the dying are desperate.

    I find it shocking that the all five halogens, except for a specific type of Iodine; are mainly deadly corrosive toxins and radioactive poisons., or are used to make deadly toxins, are used so much in foods, additives to products, the catalyst to production of dangerous products like teflon frying pans, as medicines and cures for the extreme illnesses of man. Within our very water system and beverages, toothpaste and swimming pools. Even that fire-retardant clothing on babies, has Bromaine in it.

    Are we mad , or is this on purpose, this halogen use. Much was learned from the Nazis on how to exterminate humans. The Paperclip scientists legacy have damaged us severely, with all these creations from the lab.

    Excellent as always Jon, though I would hazard to guess that Kubrick knew full well the backstory of fluoride as he was penning Strangelove.

    great article- thank you! looking at the comments, I’m feeling the Burns!

    There is some evidence that adequate levels of Iodine in your body partially prevents the uptake of fluorides.

    I’m just reading the evidence for the non-existence of the A-bomb and the non-danger from nuke electrical plants. How about it all being a cover up for the experiments with fluoride?
