The fact is that most cities around the world are adding fluoride routinely to the drinking water we all consume. In the U.S. itself, about 70% of public water supplies are fluoridated. This equates to approximately 185 million people, and you or your kids are probably one of these people affected by water fluoridation.
Fluoride is the only chemical added to water for the purpose of medical treatment. It’s hard to believe, but the sole purpose of adding this chemical is to prevent tooth decay.
The problem of adding this chemical into our water is:
- The doses are not controlled. Everyone drinks different amounts of water. The reason for the differences vary: climate differences, body composition, energy levels, athletes, diabetics, people with kidney diseases, etc. – therefore, the amounts of chemicals are changing. Those, who drink more tap water, accumulate more of this chemical in their bodies.
- Not everyone needs this additional chemical. Drugs need to be giving based on the need, age, health or vulnerability. No doubt, people with chronic disease need pure not chemically altered water and what about our kids?
- Is it unethical – giving governments the permission to add chemicals to our water and forcing us to drink it
- Fluoride is not an essential nutrient – there is no evidence proving the correlation between fluoride deficiency and a disease. There is not even one single biological process that requires fluoride. Fluoride interferes with absorbing aluminum, with G-proteins, some growth factors, hormones and neurotransmitters – so why to have it?
No significant correlation was found between tooth cavity rates and water fluoridation. It’s inadequate nutrition, access to sugary foods and beverages and lack of access to dental care that impact the numbers.We are overexposed to this chemical without any real good reason, which affects our health specifically compromised our pineal gland function, affects our thyroid, arthritis symptoms, damages our bone, increase hip fractures in the elderly, increase bone cancer (osteosarcoma), kidney disease, some correlation is found also with reproductive problems and levels of IQ as well as brain damage among adults and children.What can you do to reduce water fluoridation?
Purify your water – distillation filtration are commercially available and can be purchased to remove fluoride from water. (FYI – bottled water, that state it’s ‘distilled water’ does not imply that the product is suitable for drinking water, and other undesirable impurities may be present).
- Distil your water by yourself – you could boil tap water for few minutes about 10 minutes, cool it down, and then transfer distilled water to a clean, preferably sterile container. Just that you know: Brita, Pur, and most other filters don’t remove fluoride.Drink safe water!
