There has been much controversy over the use of fluoride in our tap water. Corporate CEO’s and executives claim we need it, but the research shows the exact opposite.
There have been mounds of research performed on the use of fluoride in tap water and toothpaste. Producers use dangerous chemicals in their products and hide it from us. They pay millions of dollars to hide the fact that these dangerous chemicals are sneaking their way into our bodies from multiple different directions – and we have no real idea of where it’s coming from. Even scarier, there could be a much darker truth as to why we are still using such outdated and poisonous water treatment methods.
Many people believe that the rising cases of ADD, ADHD, and other mental disorders are a byproduct of high fluoride water concentrations. The Harvard School of Public Health claims that fluoride in our tap water is deteriorating our health. According to Harvard School of Public Health’s research published in 2014, these chemicals are causing the prevalence of behavioral disorders in children – including fluoride.
The government allows the use of fluoride in our water because it supposedly reduces your risk for tooth decay. However, the effects of long term exposure greatly outweigh the only one possible benefit from this dangerous chemical.
According to Julia Medew’s report for the Sydney Morning Herald, “Since 2006, the number of chemicals known to damage the human brain more generally, but that is not regulated to protect children’s health, had increased from 202 to 214,”
“The pair said this could be the tip of the iceberg because the vast majority of the more than 80,000 industrial chemicals widely used in the United States have never been tested for their toxic effects on the developing fetus or child.”
You can invest in water filtration systems to filter the fluoride and other chemicals from your water. You can also try oil pulling or non-fluoridated toothpaste instead of fluoridated toothpaste. Vote with your dollar and stop putting your money towards fluoridated products!
