Is Fluoride Bad for You? Fluoride Dangers You Should Know
What is fluoride? Have you heard of fluoride dangers? Should you really avoid fluoride in water and use fluoride free toothpaste? Fluoride poisoning and its side effects are serious. Was starting of fluoridation the biggest mistake ever made?
Is fluoride bad for you?
Let’s start by saying what the latest Harvard university study discovered(published on July 2012):
Harvard Study Finds Fluoride Lowers IQ
What if you would suddenly find out that fluoride was not safe at all and was actually a carcinogenic industrial waste?
Did you know that sodium fluoride, which is used in your toothpaste, used to be main ingredient of rat poison and other vermin control poisons?
And did you know that fluoride haven’t yet ever been FDA approved and it does not meet the legal requirements of safety and effectiveness but still fluoride as a lethal poison went on to your drinking water and toothpaste?
What would you say if you suddenly found out that its been now scientifically studied and confirmed that fluoride doesn‘t actually stop tooth decay in any way, but actually causes teeth to rot and crumble, and by the same mechanism also causes osteoporosis in your bones?
Would you ever again use or put in your body something that has added fluoride in it?
And what if you found out that fluoride accelerates your aging process? Would you still happily drink fluoridated water and brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste?
Fluoride: The Hard to Swallow Truth Documentary
“A seven ounce tube of toothpaste, theoretically at least, contains enough fluoride to kill a small child.”
-Procter&Gamble, quoted in Fluoride the Aging Factor p14
After knowing that, do you still happily let your children to brush their teeth with fluoride toothpaste?
Yes its hard to believe but… Fluoride in toothpaste and drinking water is toxic industrial waste from aluminium, phosphoric acid and phosphate fertilizer industry. And even more shocking is that fluoride doesn’t actually benefit you or your teeth in any way but rather it does quite the opposite.
Fluoride in actuality weakens the condition of your teeth and worst of all is a toxic lethal poison, it shouldn’t be anywhere near anything what you drink, eat or brush your teeth with.
Let me get it straight one more time: fluoride isn’t doing good for your teeth like we have falsely learned from the mainstream media. Fluoride in toothpaste and drinking water is just actually a cancer promoting carcinogenic industrial waste.
Fluoride accelerates human aging process
Austrian researchers proved in the 1970s that as little as 1 ppm fluoride concentration can disrupt DNA repair enzymes by 50%. When DNA can‘t repair damaged cells, we get old fast.
Much of the toothpaste sold in the United States has 1000 to 1100 parts per million fluoride. In the UK, the fluoride content is even higher, 1,450 ppm fluoride is not uncommon.
Fluoride prematurely ages the body, mainly by distortion of enzyme shape. When enzymes get twisted out of shape, they can‘t do what they were intended to do. And this results in collagen breakdown, eczema, tissue damage, skin wrinkling, genetic damage, and immune suppression.
Practically any disease you can name may then be caused by fluoride poisoning.
All systems of the body are dependent upon enzymes. When fluoride changes the enzymes, this can damage:
The young body becomes old too fast.
The distorted enzymes are proteins, but now they have become foreign protein, which is the exact cause of autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, arthritis, asthma, and arteriosclerosis.
And this is just a small illustration of all the massive fluoride dangers.
Other fluoride side effects
Just a few fluoride poisoning examples and fluoride side effects to note:
And no, the fluoride dangers do not stop here.
“Teeth health promoting fluoride” in a nutshell
“Fluoride ruins your teeth”
“The more fluoride in the water, the more tooth malformation and discoloration”
“Fluoride and osteoporosis are connected”
“The teeth are windows to what‘s happening in the bones.”
“Fluoride causes Brain Damage = Low IQ”
“Cancer and fluoride are highly connected”
“Fluoride is a broad-spectrum mutagen. It can cause genetic damage in both plant and animal cells.”
“Once again, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Hundreds of scientific studies conducted and reported in the most credible universities and agencies throughout the world for the past 25 years have found an unmistakable correlation between fluoridation and cancer deaths. Even the professional opinion makers can‘t just make all this data vanish.”
“All they can do is what they‘re trained to do: change the subject. And keep repeating how safe and effective fluoride is.”
“Why “they” tell you to use fluoride?”
“Only one thing -very good — $$$$$$$$!”
I highly encourage everyone to read following article from Dr. Mercola’s site:
Is Fluoride Really As Safe As You Are Told?
Then why the official authorities recommend you to drink fluoridated water and use fluoridated toothpastes?
I won’t start interpreting why the so-called “official authorities” push people to get fluoridated. There’s a lot “conspiracy theories” on it, but they are more or less relevant for each of us.
You may start by reading more from the above link to Dr. Mercola’s all informative article on the fluoride and what is fluoride. Nonetheless the reason why “they” recommend to use fluoride doesn’t change the fact that its highly bad for us. You should make your own choices on whats senseful and not to listen blindy the media and what it tells you to do.
Anyway the fact is that industrial waste fluoride that is used in water fluoridation and toothpastes indeed is everything that’s been described above. Lethal poison which causes cancer and crumbles and rots your teeth and bones. It shouldn’t be present in anything you put in your body.
Don’t just believe me, believe the experienced doctors who know what they’re talking about.
Interesting video clip – Dr. Osmunson(dentist) and Dr. Mercola talking about fluoride in toothpaste and how harmful fluoride is for us. Hear what professional expert doctors say about fluoride
“Science doesn’t show fluoride doing anything beneficial.”
-Dr. Osmunson, full-time dentist for over 30 years
I HIGHLY recommend everyone to watch the video above. Probably the best information ever on fluoride, from the experts.
If even the professional well-informed doctors and experienced dentists wouldn’t ever use fluoridated toothpastes or drink fluoridated water… Why on earth anyone else should?
After this why would you ever put fluoride in your body, your temple?
When I was small the dentists even offered and told me to eat fluoride tablets and yes its still happening. Pay close attention and do not ever let your small children eat fluoride tablets, they don’t just potentially cause brain damage and lowering of IQ – it is actually very likely, not just potential.
Modern fluoridation could be an explanation why autism and ADD(attention deficit disorder) is on the rise.
Especially the small children shouldn’t ever be exposed to fluoride in anyhow because their brains are still in development state, especially ditch the fluoride toothpaste which they often swallow to their bodies. Get non fluoride toothpaste, you want to use toothpaste without fluoride for your whole family.
Fluoride in water
By 2012 72% of the total U.S. population gets their water from public systems that add fluoride.
Tap water is being fluoridated in many places around the world, apart from many European countries which have really realized from the data that fluoride is actually harmful to people and their teeth health and thus stopping the water fluoridation.
But especially the US-based people should be aware of this that your tap water is fluoridated.
Do not ever drink tap water which is fluoridated, do not buy water bottles which are fluoridated. See if you live nearby to a natural water spring from findaspring.com which shows almost every water spring in the planet.
Water spring would be the best source for purest health promoting water, but in reality its a very small percent of people who really could live by only the spring water. Even I live in 6 miles away from a good spring but still I don’t live only with spring water, it’s not so easy and practical.
When it comes to water filters, most water filters do not remove fluoride as its very hard-to-remove. However if you can get access to Reverse Osmosis (RO) filters its your best bet as they generally remove more impurities, including fluoride. But RO filter also removes natural minerals in the water so you need to add them back with natural unprocessed sea salt.
The Dangers of Fluoride & Water Fluoridation
Fluoride out from yours, your children and your family’s life
First, fluoride toothpastes to there where they belong – garbage can. Change to fluoride free toothpaste.
Note: When you change to a natural toothpaste the only major difference that you’ll see is that the foaming agent, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) is no longer in your toothpaste and it might feel strange.
The foaming agent SLS isn’t added in toothpastes for better cleaning effect, in fact studies claim that it doesn’t do anything to help your mouth get cleaned better. Rather it was added for the unique tingling sensation that it does in persons mouth, which hooks and addicts the person to use the toothpaste. This was discovered by Pepsodent and they started first to use SLS in toothpastes and it helped Pepsodent to get to market leader position on the industry.
At the time, early 1900s there was many brands of toothpastes but people just didn’t brush their teeth and the toothpaste industry didn’t make profit, but Pepsodent offered something different which got people to crave brush their teeth with the tingly foaming paste. Before Pepsodent almost no Americans brushed their teeth, this one chemical helped to create a national toothbrushing habit. This was explained in the book Power of The Habit (2012) by Charles Duhigg.
Now many sources claim that sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) is one of the chemicals to be avoided, it may cause several dangers for health which is the reason many toothpastes now have the ‘SLS free’ label. SLS is also used in shampoos and floor cleaning products to make that foamy effect. Questionable chemical to say the least.
Second, eliminate fluoride in your drinking water and potentially also the in shower water by getting a shower filter. Many shower filters claim to remove fluoride and other harmful toxics. Shower filter can potentially be inexpensive way to better your health and life.
Here is one recommendation for easy to install shower filter. Presumably doesn’t filter out fluoride but it does filter some of the other toxic chemicals such as chlorine, which is highly harmful for skin and hair. Remember, what is the largest organ in the body? Skin. Treat it well. Showering with regular tap water may bring some health problems, and if you do have some mystical health problems that you don’t know where they come.. Look no further than at the arsenic, fluoride, chlorine, prozac, birth control pill water you bath in. Yes, this is the reality we live in at the moment. Our ancestors didn’t have this problem.
