In addition to being one of the top 5 carcinogens on our planet,fluoride is an iodine antagonist.This means it blocks the iodine receptors so iodine can't get absorbed.Combine this w/the reality that 80% of americans are iodine depleted and the result includes obesity: since 44 metabolic functions in the body are impeded/ also diabetes because the body can not metabolize fat w/o iodine, thus the body relies on carbohydrate metabolism which is much more stressful to the kidneys and insulin system than fat metabolizing is.
