Fluoride is a poison, that poisons hundreds of enzymes in the body. Fluoridation of the water supply is associated with an increase of certain cancers and causes thyroid problems.
Excessive levels of fluoride may be linked to neurotoxicity, hormone problems, and cancer. long-term high intake of fluoride can increase the risk of brittle bones, fractures, and bone abnormalities.
While critics of fluoride were once considered a fringe group, they are now finding themselves gaining a voice in mainstream medical circle. Beyond the contentious debate over whether fluoride leads to serious health concerns is the fact that many people doubt whether fluoride even helps improve the cavity rate of adults.
Your local water utility can tell you whether your water supply has added fluoride. If it does, consider a home filtration system that removes it. Not all filtration systems eliminate fluoride. One that does is reverse osmosis filtration. Other consumer tips:
Infants should not have formula made with fluoridated water. When possible, choose fresh food over processed food products, which often contain fluoride.
Organic food is best, since it also protects you from exposure to sulfuryl fluoride, the most commonly used pesticide made with fluoride.
Limit your intake of meat and dairy products from conventionally raised animals. They are often fed bone meal, which contains high levels of fluoride.
Try to avoid mechanically deboned chicken, including nuggets and baby food, since the deboning process leaves fluoride from bones in the meat.
If you use toothpaste with fluoride, thoroughly rinse your mouth afterwards. Monitor small children while they brush to make sure they don’t use too much toothpaste and that they don’t swallow it.
If you are a homeowner, definitely invest in a reverse osmosis filtration system, short term it’s an expense, long term it could save you and your children from many unnecessary health issues and medical costs. If you don’t own a home yet, filtered water is a better option than tap water. Invest in your health, invest in your life!
