The above excerpt from the letter by Dr. Jay Cohen reflects the valiant efforts of one courageous physician to expose the frightening dangers posed to you by one popular group of medications: the fluoroquinolone antibiotics, of which Cipro is one.
You might recall hearing about Cipro during the anthrax scare in the wake of 9/11 when it received extensive media coverage as the miracle cure for anthrax. The drug became an overnight household name as soon as the first cases of anthrax-tainted mail hit the news.
Governments, pharmacies, and individuals everywhere were stockpiling Cipro, which was selling for $7 per pill.
Cipro, or ciprofloxacin, has actually been around since 1983 for a variety of indications, and is the most widely used fluoroquinolone in humans and animals today. One estimate has the number of Cipro prescriptions exceeding 280 million to date.
But the fluoroquinolones have a grim enough history to warrant a skull-and-crossbones label. The primary reason for this as that they have fluoride as a central part of the drug, and fluoride is a toxin is clearly never was meant to be in humans. Fluoride antibiotics are a significant source of fluoride in humans.
The Awful Truth About Fluoride Containing or Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics
Most likely a great deal of the toxicity of these drugs is that they contain the highly toxic poison, fluoride.
Drugs with an attached fluoride can penetrate into very sensitive tissues that used to be impenetrable. The fluoroquinolones have the unique ability to penetrate your central nervous system, including your brain.
