ATTACK OF THE FLUORIDE
Even though the Environmental Protection Agency considers fluoride to be hazardous waste, it is a main ingredient in 95% of the toothpaste sold in America. Plus, it is added to an estimated 60% of American’s drinking water. We’ve all been told all along that it fights tooth decay, but at the same time, studies show fluoride causes dental fluorosis (teeth become white-spotted, yellow, pitted or brown-stained). The way to avoid tooth decay is by avoiding refined sugars, starches and carbohydrates.
There was a really cool guy (we forgot his name) who spent time in Hawaii and around other cultures decades ago. He noticed there was barely any dental care available and that funny enough, people had great teeth. Their cultures were void of refined sugars and processed foods, making cavities and tooth decay very rare.
Fluoride that is put in drinking water contains traces of human carcinogens, mercury, arsenic, beryllium, lead, silicon, radioactive polonium and more. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral, but it is also a very toxic substance (more than lead or arsenic). When ingested over a span of time, it can lead to other issues like, memory impairment, thyroid problems, skeletal fluorosis (weakening of the bones and ligaments), lowered IQ, cancer, rashes, immune system and nervous system issues, brain damage and more.
The human pineal gland (aka “your third eye”) is a super important piece of the human body and unfortunately, it is a HUGE target for fluoride. Fluoride lessens melatonin production in the body too. Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland, which regulates hormones and sleep cycles. It also maintains the body’s circadian rhythm.
We read that Western Europe denied fluoridation to their water because they didn’t believe it was right to medicate an entire population by force, like they do in the U.S. Thankfully, more people are wising up and saying no to fluoride. Now there are non-fluoride toothpastes and mouthwashes to choose and you can always make your very own fluoride-free toothpaste with baking soda, cold-pressed coconut oil and mint oil.
Since 1990, 45 different cities in the U.S. have rejected the process of water fluoridation and we hope it becomes more than just a trend. It is very difficult to eliminate fluoride from drinking water. It can’t be filtered, unless you use a reverse osmosis filtering system, which is very expensive. Some people revert to buying distilled water, but distilled water lacks minerals and drinking it over long spans of time can lead to aging, hypertension, mineral loss in the overall body and more. We’ve been told that purified water is the best way to go. If you’re buying bottled water, we’d suggest contacting the company producing the water and inquiring about any harmful, hidden ingredients, like Fluoride, that may be in the water.
Fluoride isn’t just in our toothpaste or water. It is in our food too. Fluoride can be found in tea leaves, seafood, baby foods, fruit/veggies sprayed with fluoride pesticides and more. It is up to each of us as individuals, couples, friends and families to fill each other in on the fluoride issue and help each other achieve healthier, happier lives.
