FLUORIDE TOLERANCE OF DOMESTIC ANIMALS
“Cattle can only tolerate about 6 mg’s of fluorine
per kilo of weight. Sheep tolerate about
22 mg’s per kilo, horses 36 mg’s and
pigs 60 mg per kilo of weight.
❝…Aquatic organisms living in soft waters may be more adversely affected by fluoride pollution than those living in hard or seawaters because the bioavailability of fluoride ions is reduced with increasing water hardness. Fluoride can either inhibit or enhance the population growth of algae, depending upon fluoride concentration, exposure time and algal species. Aquatic plants seem to be effective in removing fluoride from contaminated water under laboratory and field conditions. In aquatic animals, fluoride tends to be accumulated in the exoskeleton of invertebrates and in the bone tissue of fishes. The toxic action of fluoride resides in the fact that fluoride ions act as enzymatic poisons, inhibiting enzyme activity and, ultimately, interrupting metabolic processes such as glycolysis and synthesis of proteins. Fluoride toxicity to aquatic invertebrates and fishes increases with increasing fluoride concentration, exposure time and water temperature, and decreases with increasing intraspecific body size and water content of calcium and chloride. Freshwater invertebrates and fishes, especially net-spinning caddis fly larvae and upstream-migrating adult salmons, appear to be more sensitive to fluoride toxicity than estuarine and marine animals. Because, in soft waters with low ionic content, a fluoride concentration as low as 0.5 mg F-/l can adversely affect invertebrates and fishes, safe levels below this fluoride concentration are recommended in order to protect freshwater animals from fluoride pollution…❞
Fluoridation MAY ♣ have implications for the
Australian LungfishNeoceratodus forsteri,
a protected species, which inhabit the Wivenhoe Dam,
Burnet and Mary River systems, and some reservoirs in
South East Queensland and NSW.
Lungfish first appeared in the fossil record 380 million years ago.
♣ If recycled water is returned to these dams.
Fluorides MAY explain problems with Australian Bass (Macquaria novemaculeata)

CITING TOXICITY TO BEES
Fipronil (Manufactured by Bayer) is highly toxic for bees *, crustaceans, insects and zooplankton, as well termites, rabbits, the fringe-toed lizard and certain groups of gallinaceous birds. It appears to reduce the longevity and fecundity of female braconid parasitoids.
… Fipronil -Fluocyanobenpyrazole, C12H4Cl2F6N4OS, is a slow-acting fluoride based poison. It is a broad spectrum insecticide that disrupts the insect central nervous system by blocking the passage of chloride ions through the GABA receptor and glutamate receptor I(GluCl), components of the central nervous system. This causes hyperexcitation of contaminated insects’ nerves and muscles.

1) Monsanto is boasting its partnership with 4-H Youth Development Organization, the country’s largest and most influential youth organization with more than 6.8 million members in 80 countries worldwide
2) According to the annual reports, 4-H is receiving funding from Monsanto, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Cargill, DuPont, United Soybean Board, Coca-Cola, and Pfizer
3) Monsanto has been hijacking society at every turn, including government institutions, colleges and universities, media agencies, and so-called representatives of “science”
4) Monsanto recently attempted to brainwash young children with a 16-page
book called “Biotechnology Basics Activity Book” full of colorful pages

5) Because aggregate product testing for glyphosate has not been conducted, “glyphosate should be illegal.” And that’s not all. The FQPA 10x Safety Factor is supposed to be used to give an additional 10-fold margin of safety for those most
at risk of pesticide exposures, such as pregnant women, infants and children.
The EPA, however, waived the FQPA Safety Factor for glyphosate, removing
the 10-fold safety margin to 1-fold.

FIPRONIL IS HIGHLY TOXIC TO MANY FISH.
Fipronil – (Contains Fluoride )
It is used in Australia to spray locusts.
Fipronil is broad spectrum insecticide that disrupts the insect central
nervous system by causing hyper excitation of nerves and muscles.
Fipronil is a slow acting poison.
When mixed with a bait, it allows the poisoned insect time to
return to the colony and kill other insects
in the same nesting site.

FLUORIDE IN PET FOOD:
Manataka American Indian Council™
Fluoride – dangerously high levels found in pet food
By Melissa Solis – Houston Pet Care Examiner
Pet food has a new level of danger hiding behind its labels.
Environmental Working Group (EWG) just released a new study
that showed high levels of fluoride in eight of ten pet foods tested.
Consuming fluoride can lead to many serious health concerns.
Three studies show that boys who drink fluoridated tap water between the ages of 6 and 8 face a heightened risk of osteosarcoma, the rare but deadly form of bone cancer associated with fluoride (Bassin 2006; Cohn 1992; DHHS 1991). Scientists suspect that boys’ rapid growth may make them more susceptible to bone cancer (Bassin 2006)
OSTEOSARCOMA IS THE MOST COMMON PRIMARY BONE TUMOUR IN DOGS
It is estimated to occur in over 8,000 dogs each year in the U.S., primarily in larger breeds (Chun 2003; Dernell 2001; Priester 1980; Withrow 1991). According to a recent expert review, the actual incidence is probably higher, since not all cases are confirmed and registered (Mueller 2007). Large dogs with fast growing bones are especially at risk. Only 5% of all osteosarcomas develop in dogs weighing less than 30 pounds and giant dogs generally develop osteosarcoma at a younger age compared to smaller-sized dogs and (Cooley 1997; Misdorp 1979).
A dog drinking adequate water would be exposed to 0.05-0.1 mg fluoride per kg of body weight daily, depending on the dog’s water consumption. A 10-pound puppy that eats about a cup of dog food a day would ingest approximately 0.25 mg fluoride/kg body weight/day based on average fluoride content in the 8 contaminated brands tested by EWG. At that rate, the puppy would consume 2.5 times more fluoride than EPA’s legal limit in drinking water.
When fluoride in drinking water is taken into consideration, a 10-pound puppy would be exposed to 3.5 times more fluoride than EPA allows in drinking water.
Large breed puppies may be exposed to even more fluoride…

Perfluoro-octanoic acid (PFOA), an ingredient of Teflon. It is a
suspected carcinogen now found in humans, other animals and plants.
PFOA is very persistent. Released into the environment it looks
as if it will take literally millions of years to biodegrade.
“Like so many products developed for the sake of convenience without concern for human health, Teflon coated non-stick cookware when heated has proven to be a primary source of a dangerous toxic fluoride derivative, specifically perfluorinated chemicals”
PTFE is odorless and invisible and bioaccumulates. When heated above 260ºC
it is lethal to birds (pets) and will give humans flu like symptoms.
A Teflon pan reached 721°F in just five minutes as measured by
a commercially available infrared thermometer.
