The topic of fluoridation of our water supply has its proponents and opponents on either side of the issue. Understanding fluoride and the types of fluoride used in our water supply are important to make an informed decision. Not only is fluoride a neurotoxin, it also promotes thyroid impairment. Fluoride is a medication. Fluoride is an endocrine disruptor. Fluoride lowers IQ Fluoride may be “naturally occurring” but so is arsenic. There’s no doubt about it: fluoride should not be ingested. Even scientists from the EPA’s National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory have classified fluoride as a “chemical having substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity.”
Dental health is nutrition based:
More than 60 years ago a dentist named Dr Westin Price set out to find out why tooth decay and overall health was poor in developing countries. He first went to areas of the world that had limited contact with the “civilized” world and studied their diets. What he found was remarkable. He wrote a book titled “Nutrition and Degeneration” which detailed the diets and overall health of isolated peoples who diets were rich in natural fats, fermented foods, no sugar and unpasteurized milk. Each of the different groups had varying degrees of the diet- however their health was vastly better than “civilized” groups. Of note was the fact he only found one percent of this group to have dental decay despite not brushing their teeth.
