Socrates,

You would make an excellent home-schooling parent in my opinion!  Is it illegal where you live? 

We did it both legally and illegally for 14 years, counting the pre-school years, by my sons' own choice.  I discovered, not by my own wisdom but by my children's, that the Concrete Operational stage is really a somewhat artificial boundary placed upon elementary aged children.  My boys demanded an exploration into quantum physics  around the 5th grade, so I got a book titled Quantum Physics: a Beginner's Guide to the Subatomic World and crammed, and then brought it "down to their level" so to speak by creating a workbook with large print, plainly defined vocabulary words, and brightly colored illustrations.  That topic opened up many spiritual discussions (parallel timelines, the meanings of Light in the Bible, the un-solidness of everything that "exists," the intelligence of inanimate particles, ...).

Regarding your comment about not needing dentists: Colgate recently began quietly offering a toothpaste that has arginine and minerals instead of fluoride, and states that it is capable of "filling in micro-tubules" or some such language to carefully avoid saying that cavities can be filled in without the help of a dentist.   I believe they coined this technique "pro-argin."  It would be a useful supply to stock, IMO.

Ah, a man after my own heart.
I looked into home schooling options for my daughter way back around 2000; one can 'beg' the local government for permission [sigh] based on persuasion and what not...

Forget the now; the only consolation about 7 billion folks dying during TEOTWAWKI is that at least we'll be rid of all the burocrats!
The point of this particular thread is that the last thing future generations need is a revolution, i.e. a repeat of what has transpired during our own 'dispensation'.
Blessed be the world that never had to go through the phase of burocracy...

Never heard of this!  Thanks for posting!  I eliminated fluoride years ago, but hubby's dentist has him convinced that brain-killing-fluoride is good for the teeth.  Now maybe this just might help.  Thanks again.

5% of America's energy consumption goes into the production of aluminum and fluorine is a byproduct of those processes. So we're talking a MAJOR player and major lobby power; and if said power has an interest in getting rid of their toxic waste in a way that makes money, well... you know the drill.

There's plenty of literature out there to substantiate the argument that fluoride is bad for the teeth and none to substantiate that it might be good. TPTB always demand proof of others but supply none themselves.
Okay, so if fluoride is so darn good for my teeth, i'm sure, you, Mr. dental professional, can easily, quickly and (hopefully) habitually produce a few (actually) scientific papers substantiating such a claim. C'mon; you base your reputation and profession on such things; surely you have the proof lying around somewhere...
But they don't. Every time you confront TPTB with this common sense request, they play their supposed authority-card and simply demand you comply (because they are saving you from your own stupidity or something; again, supposedly...).

Fluoride is toxic [undisputed!]. And when your iodine intake is under parr, it is outright dangerous and undermines your health. Again, Jorge Flechas is a [conventional!!!] medical doctor and professional and a specialist on iodine; now you're thinking: "What does iodine have to do with fluorine?!" But it has everything to do with the other halogen fluorine.
And the absolute worst of it is how important iodine is in relation to brain function... [i.e. if you are undermining your iodine levels, you are undermining your brain's ability to function properly (and you might be believing in incredibly stupid things like fluoride is good for your teeth...)]

The real question is: Does 'hubby' [i sympathise...] know/respect/accept ANY of that? And i know you're fighting an uphill battle here; the question is: are we talking "insipid", "stupid" or "downright lost"...? Or, best case: simply ignorant?

I can't read his thoughts on dental stuff, but I'm guessing he thinks there is some benefit to teeth.  I think he simply doesn't want to take the time to read the book I bought and read (Fluoride Deception) or even look at the Periodic Chart and see that fluoride is more active than iodide, etc., and that it will replace iodide given the opportunity, etc., etc. 

  Heck, it took me about five years to convince him he doesn't need those dental x-rays every six months, or was it every three months.  It was only when he developed cataracts that I think my years of badgering opened his mind a bit.  I told him exactly what I learned in a course on radionuclides--that dental x-rays can cause cataracts.  They work the same magic on the lens in your eye that the sun does on certain types of plastic windows over time (they craze, if that's the correct spelling).  Once he realized that that dentist who he trusted had actually given him cataracts, he stopped getting the x-rays. 

He rarely gets online and has all the farmwork he can handle, so I can see how he's not as well informed on some of these issues, but still I badger.....
