Fluoridation

For may years now, controversy has raged over whether fluoride should be added to drinking water.

As early as 1961, fluoride was exposed as a lethal poison in our nation’s water supply.

Proponents say fluoride occurs naturally and helps develop and maintain strong bones and teeth.

Opponents say when fluoridated water is consumed regularly, toxic levels of fluorine, the poisonous substance from which fluoride is derived, build up in your body, causing irreparable harm to your immune system.

The Delaney Congressional Investigation Committee, the government body charged with monitoring additives and other substances in the food supply, has stated “fluoridation is mass medication without parallel in the history of medicine.”

Meanwhile, no convincing scientific proof has ever been generated proving fluoridated water makes stronger bones and teeth.

Chronic fluoride use can result in health problems, including osteoporosis and osteomalacia, and also damages teeth leaving them mottled.

But this only happens with very high doses.

Fluorine is never found in elemental form in nature because it’s so reactive.

Many compounds of fluorine can, however, exist.

These are notoriously toxic compounds, so much so they’re used in rat poison and insecticides.

The naturally occurring form of fluoride, calcium fluoride, isn’t toxic – but this form isn’t used to fluoridate water.

Sodium fluoride is added to city water supplies in the proportion of about one part per million to help prevent tooth decay.

Sodium fluoride, stannous fluoride, and sodium monofluorophosphate are added to toothpaste to help prevent tooth decay.

Today, more than half the cities in the United States fluoridate their water supplies.

In fact, in many states it’s required.

Although many ailments and disorders – including Down syndrome, mottled teeth, and cancer – have been linked to fluoridated water, fluoridation has become the standard rather than the exception.

People have different levels of tolerance for toxins like fluoride.

In addition, many water sources have levels of fluoride higher than one part per million.

And this is in addition to fluoride you get from other sources.

Since so many local water supplies are fluoridated, there’s a good chance virtually any packaged food product made with water, like soft drinks and reconstituted juices, contains fluoride.

It’s easy to see how many Americans may be ingesting excessive amounts of this potentially toxic substance.

If your tap contains fluoride, and you want to remove it, you can use a reverse osmosis, distillation, or activated alumina filtration system to eliminate almost all of the fluoride from your water.
