False Information and False Assumptions: Is Green Tea Full of Sodium Fluoride?
In an article entitled “Did You Know Green Tea Contains Dangerous Levels of Toxic Sodium Fluoride” we read a tale of treacherous twists and turns in a shameless spin on facts, all written up by one “Marco Torres” for a new age online organization going by the name of “Prevent Disease”.
The article has gained publicity today, following on the heels of a recent internet “push” to move searches on sodium fluoride dangers to the top of Google rankings, which happened just the day before.
The article is quite misleading however, and has the potential to cause much conflict in the camps of those who are only partially educated on the subject.

“Green tea has emerged as a major natural substance in fighting diseases like heart disease, cancer and helping with weight loss. It’s been mass marketed to billions around the world and many sip it religiously everyday in the hopes that it will make them healthier. All except for one thing, it contains toxic sodium fluoride.” [preventdisease.com]
What is Sodium Fluoride?
“Sodium Fluoride is a synthetic waste product of the nuclear, aluminum, and phosphate fertilizer industries. This fluoride has an amazing capacity to combine and increase the potency of other toxic materials. The sodium fluoride obtained from industrial waste and added to water supplies is also already contaminated with lead, aluminum, and cadmium.”
“Sodium fluoride, a hazardous-waste by-product from the manufacture of aluminum and phosphate fertilizer, is a common ingredient in rat and cockroach poisons, anesthetics, hypnotics, psychiatric drugs, and military nerve gas.”
Sodium Fluoride is Synthetic.
Natural Green Tea is Organic.
Look up ‘synthetic’ and ‘organic’ in any dictionary.. the conditions are mutually exclusive of each other.. it is just as impossible for something synthetic to be organic as it is for something organic to be synthetic.
This fact alone is enough to destroy the absurd claim by ‘preventdisease.com’.. it is the equivalent of saying “day is night” or “white is black”.. but let’s finish our trek down the rabbit-hole with “Prevent Disease” – who are claiming, and many readers are believing, that “naturally-occuring decomposed matter” is the same as “un-natural manufactured toxic waste material” – which of course, is completely impossible.
“A study in the January 2005 issue of the Journal of American Medicine also..” [preventdisease.com]
Red Flag JAMA – A Beast publication of the NWO. Yes.. we all trust the information given us by the Journal of American Medicine.. the same publication which slavishly gives routine praise to the sorcery of the murderous parasitic pharmaceutical industry.. right?
“..found that instant teas appear to contain excessive levels of sodium fluoride.” [preventdisease.com]
“Instant” teas contain not only synthetic sodium fluoride, but a whole host of other manufactured toxic chemicals not found in nature. The overwhelming majority of ‘instant’ drink mixes are laden with poisons and should be completely avoided in anyone’s diet.
“Green tea is one of the worst culprits having double the amount of fluoride as black tea. Brick tea has the highest fluoride concentration and symptoms of fluorosis have been seen in Tibetan children and adults who drink large amounts of this kind of tea.” [preventdisease.com]
Notice the article does not cite its JAMA source.. which would be “The American Journal of Medicine Volume 118, Issue 1, January 2005, Pages 78-82″ – a ‘brief observation’ entitled “Skeletal fluorosis and instant tea”. The JAMA report begins by summarizing that “We caution that skeletal fluorosis can result from consumption of excessive amounts of instant tea because of substantial fluoride levels in some commercial preparations.”
“because of.. levels in some commercial preparations” – not in the raw tea itself, mind you. Raw tea is what you would consume if you were drinking organic green tea brewed in completely pure water. Raw tea is not commercially processed the same way as instant tea.
“All real tea comes from the Camellia Sinensis leaf. Green tea (lu cha) is the result of curing the young camellia leaf using various methods and degrees of heat. Some green tea is cured with ovens, while others are pan-fried in a giant wok called a ding.” [green-tea-information.org]
Perhaps “Prevent Disease” failed to cite this particular JAMA article because it contains a “Sources of Fluoride Toxicity” list that includes items such as fluoride therapy for osteoperosis, pediatric supplements, teflon-coated pots, pesticides, industrial exposure during arc welding, manufacture of aluminum, and dentifrices, mouthwashes, toothpastes and topical dental gels.
The case study in the report is on the effects and fluroride levels of a white woman, aged 52, who consumed instant beverages including tea.. it has nothing to do with the effects of natural green tea, or any other natural tea, on anyone.
And even though the “Prevent Disease” author warns against skeletal fluorosis.. in the fourth paragraph under the “Discussion” sub-heading in the JAMA report, we read “There are few reports of skeletal fluorosis in the United States.”
“Tea plants accumulate fluoride in their leaves over time, so the oldest leaves contain the most fluoride, while the youngest contain the least.” [preventdisease.com]
“There are four main types of tea which are, white, green, oolong, and black, all which are born from the same species of plant. [...] Camellia sinensis is the scientific classification for the tea plant.” [thecoloroftea.com]
Remember, there are 2 basic types of “fluoride”.. “calcium fluoride” – a naturally ocurring compound, and “sodium fluoride” a synthetic compound.
Camellias and other plants take in ground and rain water.. the water is stored in the leaves, however, the determining factor of toxicity in raw tea is relative only to whether the plant absorbed water rich in healthy naturally-ocurring calcium fluoride or whether it absorbed poisonous synthetic sodium fluoride.
Natural calcium fluoride is good for you.. and is still found these days in many places in the world, including, believe it or not, some small towns, in addition to paradise locations such as the coral reefs of Okinawa.
According to my mother, who lived in Okinawa, where the water is naturally enhanced with calcium fluoride, the citizens of the island looked half their age and illness was extremely rare.
For over 20 years our household consumed naturally flouridated municipal water.. the town did not add synthetic sodium fluoride to the water supply because of the high content of naturally-ocurring calcium fluoride. I never had a cavity while growing up. Six months after moving to a town with a sodium fluoride enriched water supply – I developed my first cavity.
It is not just the water drawn in by the plant that is responsible for determining the fluoride content of any type or color of tea, but also the quality of water used to brew it.
Has any “scientific” study been done on green tea use where the subjects ate the tea instead of drinking it brewed in water.. probably not any which have been published in The JAMA.
“Therefore, white tea (which is made from youngest leaves and buds) is your best bet to reduce fluoride exposure.” [preventdisease.com]
White tea is not necessarily made from “youngest leaves and buds” as this article claims.. it is most often ‘made’ from the exact same leaves and buds as green, oolong, and black teas, which are all commonly harvested at the same times during the year.
“Tea processing is the art of preparing the freshly picked tea leaves in a way which will determine its type (color).There are four outcomes, white, green, oolong, and black. I should mention that white tea will skip pretty much all the steps below, for it is not really processed at all…just steamed and dried. ” [thecoloroftea.com]
“The purest form of the Camellia Sinensis leaf, white tea is simply picked, washed and dried, giving it a fragile, flaky texture when dry and a very light gentle flavor. White tea is the least processed of all the teas, and therefore is highest in antioxidant, while it is lowest in caffeine.” white-tea-information.org
“What are you drinking?”
Sodium fluoride is a known hostile predator in nearly all water sources.. intentionally released to stalk the systems of imbibers just about everywhere. Hitler used it in Germany’s water supply in an effort to gain Nazi control over the minds of the masses.. what has been happening in governments around the world since then is no different.. dangerous synthetic sodium fluoride is pumped into water supplies and dumped into ground water sources to help ensure foremost that people will not mind having someone else like Big Brother do their thinking for them.
Unlike Green Tea, the article in “Prevent Disease” is a real danger.. even though it is utterly absurd and easily refuted.. it still “is”.. it exists.. people will read it.. a lot of people will believe what they read, and others will wonder without seeking an answer.. and thus will another NWO tool succeed in tightening the bolts of brainwashing in the minds of would-be independent thinkers.
Those who choose to remain ignorant concerning the fallacies in this article will become programmed repeaters who will respond roboticly.. “You shouldn’t drink that tea.. it’s full of fluroide”.. such potential to cause rifts within a community of people who were once at least united on the common ground that “Sodium Fluoride is Evil”.
We are living in a time where organic food and supplements are under, and are facing, extreme regulation.. disinformation like that in this PD piece could go a long way toward removing the liberty of purchase or ownership of clean and pure nutritionally essential products.. and that could go a long way toward gaining total control of the vast number of people on Earth.. which could go a long way toward the removal of most of those people.. which would go even farther in assisting the PTB in their ultimate agenda – a world without end where they are the rulers and we are all but destroyed.
