Did you know 97% of Western Europe has chosen fluoride-free water. The difference between the United States and Western Europe is that Western Europe more often allows individuals the right to choose, or refuse, fluoride.
Why the United States continues to place this poison in the water without our say is baffling. We should at least have the right to vote for or against it.
The good news is that you don’t have to drink the fluoride if you don’t want to. You can easily remove this toxin with a fluoride water filter.
The chemicals fluorosilicic acid (FSA), sodium silicofluoride, and sodium fluoride are used to fluoridate drinking water and are industrial waste products from the phosphate fertilizer industry.
A recent study from the University of North Carolina found that FSA can, in combination with chlorinated compounds, leach lead from brass joints in water pipes. Lead is a neurotoxin that can cause learning disabilities and behavioral problems in children. Double whammy, huh?
Recent studies in peer-reviewed medical literature indicate that fluoridated water can have detrimental side effects.
Health risks associated with low-to-moderate doses of fluoride include: dental fluorosis, bone fracture, bone cancer, joint pain, skin rash, reduced thyroid activity, and IQ deficits.
No disease has ever been linked to a fluoride deficiency and fluoridation’s role in the decline of tooth decay is in serious doubt. Unfluoridated first world countries appear to have no greater effects of tooth decay than fluoridated countries.
So exactly how can we remove our own fluoride from the water supply? The two types of filters which will reliably remove more than 90% of the fluoride are reverse-osmosis filters and activated alumina filters.
I personally use a pair of PF-2 reduction elements which virtually eliminate fluoride, arsenic and other residual heavy metal ions. Berkey water filter systems allow the option of purchasing these fluoride filters to add to their systems.
These attachable fluoride filters work in conjunction with Black Berkey water purification elements I have in a countertop water filter system. The combination guarantees clean, pure water.
These filters will remove up to 99.75% of this toxic poison and will keep you and your family safe. So you don’t have to worry about fighting the system or hoping your city will someday remove fluoride from the water. You can do it yourself with no problem.
There are other things you can do to ensure that your teeth don’t decay due to fluoride. First, you can minimize your consumption of processed beverages such as soda and reconstituted juice.
Soda and juice made from concentrate are often manufactured with fluoridated tap water, and hence, have fluoride levels similar to fluoridated water.
Bottled water does not guarantee fluoride-free water, as it’s been discovered that some bottled water companies use tap water.
Buying fluoride-free toothpaste is also a good idea. Our family has always used fluoride-free toothpaste with no problems.
