Is Fluoride Free Water Really That Important?

Updated on February 3, 2018

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.

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.

      Many a doctor will never admit to these findings along with many, many others. One must learn as much as they can and treat their body well. You are waking people up to thinking again. Many thanks and blessings.

      Thanks for all the great information! I have terrible thyroid problems and it's often suggested that it's fluoride related.

      We stopped drinking fluoridated water years ago. Our children's teeth have improved not to mention our joint problems healed up as well.

      Wow, makes me think I need to start filtering. Thanks

      @lesliesinclair: Add to that the fact that it has yet to be proven effective by adding it to drinking water, and in a lot of studies the opposite has been shown, it makes one stop and wonder why it is being thrust upon people.

      As far back as the 70s my mother-in-law warned of the dangers to the kidneys, from fluoridated water. I use a Doulton filter.

      @jp. You have to be wary of BPAs in plastic bottles. Best thing is to filter your water.

      I've been reading about flouride in our water and agree that it is not difficult to find evidence that it is poison. I haven't really trusted drinking water but now realize it is worse than I had imagined. I usually drink bottled water, yet surely have ingested more flouride than what's healthy just from cooking, restaurants, etc. So am looking into a good filter for flouride free water and appreciate what I've learned here. Thanks, well done!

      I've never lived in a home with fluoridated water. I filter water if it comes from a public source, and I have our home well tested regularly for other reasons. However, I do use a fluoride toothpaste, but that's my choice.

      @checkyourvibe: In my humble opinion, the folks at the top know exactly what the calcification of fluoride in the pineal gland does. It keeps people dumbed down, docile and disconnected from The Source, God,etc...People are starting to wake up, though, and that is a good sign. Thanks for stopping by!

      Many believe that what is referred to as the "soul" is the ability to choose. In a sense, then, we have lost that as fluoride is added to the water against our will. Any person who checks the facts will realize this is a poison. Those who refuse to do so are living in denial.
