Is Fluoride Free Water Really That Important?
Fluoridation of Public Water Supplies - The Great Debate
As the fluoridated water debate continues unabated, let's take a good look at some compelling reasons to avoid fluoride treated water.
The pros considerably outweigh the cons when it comes to choosing fluoride-free water over most of the city tap water found in the United States.
The reported health concerns related to fluoridating water are multiple, including obesity, arthritis, bone cancer and other skeletal diseases.
It can also affect the thyroid and pineal glands, affecting hormone regulation.
This article aims to point out a more few of the short term and long term health effects of consuming fluoride and fluoridated water.
Issues Surrounding Fluoridated Water
Using fluoride as an additive to public drinking supplies to aid in reducing in dental cavities is currently being investigated by a number of scientific organizations. Some believe that it is actually causing people to have bone issues, such as arthritis or bone damage later in life.
It has been found that too much fluoride causes dental fluorosis when used on children in their formative years. This causes unsightly brown yellow or white spots on your children's teeth, which can be a bit traumatic for sensitive kids trying to fit in with their friends.
While many people might believe that a dose of fluoride helps their teeth, this is not always true. The government cited a statistic during the years of World War II. Countries that both used and did not use fluoride experienced an increase in overall dental health whether fluoride was in the water or not. This can actually be attributed to people brushing their teeth more often, as well as seeing dentists on a regular basis. This happened across the globe, not just in locations where fluoride was used.
Dental Fluorosis Can Be a Side Effect of Fluoride
The Sources of Fluoride in Tap Water
The types and sources of fluoride being used in our water may surprise you!
If you "follow the money", it seems that it is easier to sell these dangerous chemicals than it is to dispose of them as hazardous waste!
The latest of these chemicals is hydrofluorosilicic acid (HFSA), another of the products used in manufacturing processes which, by the way, costs the users money to have disposed of properly due to its toxicity. Yet it is purposely added to our water supplies under the guise of good dental health.
Fluoride Sold as Pesticide - Chinese Factories Export Poisons to U.S. Cities for Water Fluoridation
- Guess where your fluoride comes from? China!
Much of the fluoride added to municipal water supplies across the United States is imported from China, and is contaminated with heavy metals, according to a warning by Bernard Miltenberger, president of the Pure Water Committee of Western Maryland.
- Why the fluoridation of public water supplies is illegal
Did you know that fluoride in our water supplies is the only chemical added for a specific medical purpose, i.e. to prevent tooth decay? All other chemicals are added for treatment purposes, to improve the quality and safety of tap water. And an expe

The Feds Are Waking Up About Water Fluoridation
For the first time in over 50 years, the United States government has admitted people are getting too much fluoride and has recommended lowering the amounts added to water.
Safe Dosages of Fluoride
What is an acceptable level of fluoride in drinking water?
You can never really be sure that you are getting safe levels of fluoride from your drinking water because it's impossible to regulate the dosages. People drink various amounts of water on a daily basis and fluoridated water affects different people in differing ways, depending on the amount consumed.
Fluoride is a toxic drug being dispensed with no guarantee of the dosage consumed per person, let alone the safety of the chemical in small amounts. If you also factor in fluoride found in food and other regularly consumed drinks, you can begin to see a problem.
Even toothpaste manufacturers have enough common sense to know enough to label their products with poison warnings.
Fluoride Dosage Concerns
Someone needs to explain to us how adding fluoride to water can be effectively monitored when people drink differing amounts of water on a daily basis. Add to that the fact that fluoride is a toxic drug and you have a clear case of dispensing drugs to people without a license or any kind of real oversight.
Fluoridation of Children
What I find appalling is peddling fluoridated water to parents of very young children. With all the poisonous vaccines, toxic food, and unclean air, kids have enough problems to deal with from a health perspective that adding fluoride to the mix is a recipe for disaster.
Fluoride's Effect on the Pineal Gland
Whether or not calcification of the pineal gland is being done on purpose remains to be seen, it is a very real issue that needs to be investigated more thoroughly.
Fluoridated Water Should Be a Matter of Choice!
Enough is enough! There are plenty of ways for people to poison themselves with fluoride without forcing it on us via our water supply.
