Updated on November 13, 2014

Do We Need Fluoride?

No. Definitely, No. But our dentists keep on telling us to use toothpaste that has Fluoride for sure. However it is now known that fluoride is not an essential nutrient. This means that no human disease including tooth decay will result from not having Fluoride.

Is it Risky to Swallow Fluoride?

Fluoride has long been known to be a very toxic substance.

This is why Fluoride has been used in pesticides. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) now requires that all Fluoride toothpaste in the U.S. carry a poison warning that instructs users to contact the poison control center if they swallow more than used for brushing.

The article below will explain you some shocking disasters that the Fluoride will cause your body.

What is the impact of Fluoride to Human Body?

Fluoride is not only in your toothpaste that you use to brush tour tooth daily 2-3 times a day. It is exposed everywhere, even on the water you drink. Thus it has become shockingly dangerous than one can think of.

It says “More people drink fluoridated water in the United States than the rest of the world combined.”

The toothpaste companies and water management systems would say the Fluoride is good for your oral health. However long-term ingestion is harmful to the brain, digestive system, heart, bones. Nevertheless this so called “good for your oral health inorganic Fluoride” even harm the tooth enamel which it’s supposed to help.

You will shock to see the impact of Fluoride to your body. Read them carefully and decide whether you still need to use that toothpaste you brushed today morning or join with communities to stop using Fluoride for a better healthy life. Join


1. Skeletal Fluorosis

In simple terms Fluoride weakens Skeletal Health.

Skeletal fluorosis is a condition resulting from Fluoride consumption. The liver in your body is unable to process Fluoride, therefore it passes Fluoride into the bloodstream where it combines with calcium. Eventually you are left with weak bones, also known as skeletal fluorosis.

2. Causes Arthritis

Fluoride has been shown to cause calcification of cartilage, the essential tissue for joint health. Osteoarthritis has links to skeletal fluorosis.

Arthritis has many varieties and causes severe pains in the long run and could end up being immobile. Hope no one wants to live in that stage when there is a simple action to do by saying No to Fluoride.


3. Toxic to the Thyroid

Thyroid gland is a very important gland in the human body. Thyroxin is essential for living. Although iodine is beneficial to the thyroid, Fluoride is not.

However, because of the similarities, the thyroid can absorb Fluoride instead of iodine. This is a disaster. Fluoride is toxic to thyroid cells. History says Nazis have used Fluoride in concentration camps

4. Accelerates Female Puberty

Scientific Research has shown that girls with more Fluoride exposure experience puberty earlier than girls exposed to less.

Puberty should happen naturally and not through an outside chemical exposure. This abnormal early puberty impacts the long term sexual ability of them. Further even dangerous to hear is higher levels of Fluoride correspond to lower fertility rates.


5. Bad for Kidney Health

Fluoride is not only toxic to Thyroid gland but also toxic to the kidneys. Having affected kidneys will slowly kill you.


6. Harmful to the Cardiovascular System

Research suggests that exposure to Fluoride causes cardiovascular inflammation and atherosclerosis.


7. Negative Cognitive Effects

The accumulation of Fluoride negatively impacts children’s neural development and causes low IQ levels.

Fluoride- The hard to swallow truth

How to Reduce Your Exposure to Fluoride

  1. Using non-fluoride toothpaste can immediately reduce your Fluoride exposure. Try to use such as Xylit instead. Atleast let the children aware that they should not swallow Fluoride toothpaste by any chance.How to make a natural toxic free home made toothpaste with just 2 ingredients.
  2. Maintaining healthy iodine levels can help protect the impact to the thyroid from Fluoride.
  3. Fluoridated water is the largest concern and most water filters are not adequate for removing Fluoride. Thus use a better water filter.

Stop using Teflon non stick and switch to stainless steel

      Hi vocalcoach, pstraubie48 : I understand you totally as I was also in that situation with my daughter where the doctor was pressing her to use a Fluoride toothpaste. What I have understood here is that Floride could help in the short time but looking at the long term issues that causes to your entire body it is not worth while.All the time what this medicine world and drug world do is give us some drugs which slighlty stops one issue and creates several other issues and manufacture hundreds of other drugs for those and we are in a cycle using those. I always think living the natural way and cure the natural way as much as possible helps in the long run. That is why i have started using natural toothpaste 3 days and Fluoride toothpaste the rest of the 4 days to have a balance. Swallowing Fluoride is the major issue and make sure you don't swallow. And remember to use a very very little bit of Fluride toothpaste and not in big quantities along the toothbrush as shown in TV advertisements.

      How can it still be in our water and sold across the counter to us? I do not get it.

      We have been told over and over to use it and now this. It is frightening. What else don't we know?

      Angels are on the way to you this morning ps

      I had a visit to my dentist last week and she stressed the importance of using fluoride. After reading your hub I am confused and somewhat troubled. To use, or not to use - that is the question.

      Hello worried mom: I can imagine your status as I was also on the same situation and my daughter also having some bad tooth issues. As yous all my dentists were stressing that we should use a toothpaste that definitely has Fluoride. You want to hear what i did ? I almost stoped using non stick teflon cookware and bought a good stainless steel cooking set and i felt wonderful of not having chemicals in my meals anymore. Also i started using the toxic free all natural toothpaste made at my home 4 days a week. How to make it can be read here:

      And then i used 3 days The fluoride toothpaste but very little amount ( similar to size of a pepper seed) and made sure my kid never ever swallow and wash her mouth with warm water after brushing.
