Toxic Fluoride in Your Drinking Water

Monday, January 17th, 2011

Just late last week, the CDC released a statement admitting that two in five children show signs of fluoride streaking.   In this instance, streaking is a nice term for poisoning due to dental fluorosis.  Government officials are beginning to realize how polluted our water system and food chain is with fluoride.

For decades, parents have listened to their dentists and medical doctors warnings and have given their children fluoride through any means possible such as by tap water, at dental visits, and even in toothpaste.  Fluoride is a poison.   It is really not fluoride at all but fluorosilicic acid, a toxic waste product of the phosphate industry.

Here are only some of the many effects Flouride has once inside the body:

  • Causes the breakdown of bone, collagen, tissue, muscle, kidneys, and lungs
  • Lowers and confuses your immune system, causing it to attack itself
  • Destroys your thyroid gland

Fluoride has been used as both an insecticide and as rat poison.  Even the toothpaste companies know how deadly fluoride is: Proctor and Gamble, the makers of Crest, acknowledge that a family-sized tube “theoretically contains enough fluoride to kill a small child.”  Remove and reduce your fluoride exposure as soon as you can and your body will thank you for it.

Steps to Reduce Fluoride Exposure:

1. Get rid of your fluoridated toothpaste

2. Choose organic fruits and vegetables since the US National Organic Program does not permit the use of pesticides that leave high fluoride residues

3. Avoid long-term use of medications that contain fluorine  (many of these are antidepressants)

4. Filter the water coming into your home with a whole house water filter.  Drinking and bathing water need to be filtered.  Clinically I have seen patients with fluoride poisoning due to bathing in water with excessive fluoride.  In some cases it was so bad that a blue ring was left around the tub.  I personally use Watershield.
