Everyone knows that fluoride is added to our drinking water. They also add fluoride to our hatcheries, streams, lakes, oceans, and rivers. It should be viewed as toxic poison.
That’s what it is called when it’s a runoff from the aluminum industry or from a phosphate/fertilizer industry. However, when you drink it in city tap water, it’s known as fluoride. We are told that the fluoride in our water prevents dental cavities. The implication is that if you drink this water you will have no cavities.
In addition recent and older surveys clearly indicate that adding fluoride to drinking water to alleviate tooth decay is an idea that is based on a false premise. There is no proof whatsoever that fluoride prevents cavities primarily because it doesn’t work systematically, only topically. These various scientific studies were not even complete prior to fluoridation beginning in the US.
However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention consider the fluoridation of our water as one of the 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century.
The Environmental Protection Agency has changed its mind since its original recommendation not to exceed 4 ppm and has since adjusted its position about the addition of fluoride to our drinking water.
The EPA objects to the one size fits all approach to fluoride.
If one person drinks 10 glasses of fluoridated water to another person’s 1 glass, the first person is getting 10 times more of a dose then the second.
There are two types of natural fluorides that occur which are calcium fluoride and sodium fluoride. Some states seem to have a lot of natural fluoride, but the kids who drink this water get pitted brown spots on their teeth which are recognized as fluorosis.
The fluoride that is produced by the aluminum industry has been graciously offered to a desperate cavity ridden public for the prevention of cavities. However, it does much more than that.
It frequently produces unwanted side effects such as stripes, white spots, or pitted brown spots on the teeth. Regardless if they are spots of white or brown or white stripes, they all indicate fluorosis which is a sign of toxicity and the damage is considered permanent.
