Interviewer: Can I just get your recommendations for proper oral health care? You know, what can people do to eliminate their, at least reduce their exposure to fluoride and still maintain proper oral health care?
Dr. Kennedy: Well, let me first point out the fact that fluoride does not reduce tooth decay that is a myth. And that, yeah, if you brush your teeth really hard with it you can show a little bit of a difference, but there are other things that work much, much better. They never get a chance in the market place, because we are stuck on this fluoride, basically myth. Iodine, much more effective.
In my YouTube channel, that I have a video called Bad Bugs and we talk about gum disease. People talk about tooth decay, tooth decay is a disease of children, because the malnourished children. Most people lose their teeth because of gum disease and that's a chronic disease that you get when you are child and by the time you get to be 30, 40, 50 years old, your teeth get lose and start to falling out or being extracted. Do you get your gums cut off and bone [inaudible 00:01:01] and then you'll spend lots of money.
And basically, it's an infection that you could hose away with a water pick and iodine and salt and soda or something there, and hose it away because they are swimmers. You can't brush them away. It's like trying to brush a fish away. If you take a brush and rubbed it around in the pond, do the fish going to leave? No. Looks that like you are crazy. Well, the same thing is true with the bugs in your gums. They are swimmers. You can hose them away and if you put something in the hose that they don't like, like iodine, you can hose them away and kill them while you are at it. And that's how you get to be oral health.
I read a whole book on the subject; it's called how to save your teeth with toxic-free preventive dentistry. And I have been making movies on it, Recipe for oral health. It's part of Bad Bugs. You can learn all the stuff just by Google in it and get on a YouTube channel and watch it. Oral health is easy to create. It's just not treated right in this country.
Dentists treat cavities with a drill. That's like using a knife to treat an infection. You got to keep cutting more and more off every time. And [inaudible 00:02:2] had one filling, he had another one and another one and another one. And you say, "Well, if that solve the problem how come we are doing this again and again and again and again?" It doesn't solve the problem, because tooth decay is caused by a bug called streptococcus mutants.
And if you really cared about children not having cavities whenever they went to kindergarten or preschool then they have all little kiddies spit in the tube and that incubated and if it turns purple they have got streptococcus mutants. When you do that one out of five children will turn their tooth purple. So then you take that kid have them, the mother brush the teeth with iodine or one of the bug killing agents and then you have them spit in the tube again and you look until that tube doesn't turn purple, you've got rid of the bug that causes tooth decay.
I had a guy in my practice, he never brushed his teeth. There was gum everywhere and his teeth were perfectly healthy. He didn't have a [inaudible 00:02:58] of his head. His gums are pink and wonderful. Well, when we look it on the microscope, he didn't have any crawlies. When he spit in a tube it didn't turn purple. Believe me it's an infection that goes from person to person to person. DNA testing shows it's coming from the mother or grandmother or the caregiver to the child at about age two. So it's a germ. It's transferred from the people that care for the child. All the germs in the baby's body come from mother. So but if they happen to be a bad one in the mix you can very simply get rid of it. You don't need it. It's not a valuable bug. Kill it. So it's gone.
Interviewer: What about fluoridated water then? If our community has it, how do we protect ourselves? Can filters take care of it? Do we have to [inaudible 00:03:49] to bottled distilled water, you know what sort of options do people have?
Dr. Kennedy: The options are very few. The trouble is that fluoride, as I mentioned earlier, if you have it in your mouth, it goes up in your blood stream. If you take a shower in fluoridated water, it goes up in your blood stream. So if you have a community that it's adding this terrible poison to the water supply, then you either have to abandon your community and go out to the country and find a house sits on a well, or move to another country like Mexico or Japan that doesn't put it in the water supply. Germany, France, Holland, one of the [inaudible 00:04:28] of countries that don't allow in the water supply. Or you can do what I am telling people to do.
Like me on Facebook. Go to work and save your country. Because the problem is industry is making billions of dollars out for this and until enough of us stand up and say stop it they are going to keep doing it. It's making the money. So if we stand up and make him stop they can find some other way we make money. Maybe do something valuable for our society rather than disposing of a hazardous waste in our water supply. You got to work on it. It's democracy. The more of us then they're out of them. And so, put your shoulder to the wheel and we will turn this around.
Interviewer: And other communities that do debate this to whether or not to fluoridate. Do we know what percentage of the United States is fluoridated?
Dr. Kennedy: It's over 75% and it's all the big cities. California was one of the least fluoridated states up until 1995 and it was a market. Why was California least fluoridated? Because over a hundred times the citizens of California have gone to the polls and said not my water. So [inaudible 00:05:33]) and all the people that have the product to get rid of, American Dental Association, California Dental Association, went around Sacramento and passed out a few hundred thousand dollars.
They gave Pete Wilson a hundred thousand dollars to sign the bill, governor. He comes from a city that has a law against it. But that didn't keep him from signing that. And so buying legislatures at the state level, several states like Kentucky and California have mandatory fluoridation bill. Kentucky has had one of the oldest ones. You know, what state in the union has the most number of people with a fewest number of teeth, that would be Kentucky.
So the citizens have already spoken. They are buying billions and billions of dollars of bottled water a year. But you can't take a bath in it. What if you wanted to take a Jacuzzi? What if you want to go swimming and work out of the gym? What if you want to go on a sauna? You're going to get water, your body exposed to water some way or another. So we need to have water that's pure. And that that's not what you get out of the tap. And that if there're tracking the stuff in from Florida or shipping it in from China, you definitely don't want to take a bath in it.
