Fluoride is added to the drinking water in many countries in a process called fluoridation, ostensibly to protect teeth from decay, especially the teeth of poorer individuals who have no access to good dental treatment, especially children.
Governments have repeatedly told everyone that this is safe and effective, but a recent study published in the world’s most renowned medical journal, The Lancet, has classified fluoride as a neurotoxin that has a negative impact on brain development similar to other toxic compounds such as arsenic, lead and mercury.
The reason that countries add fluoride to their drinking water is based on an outdated notion that fluoride prevents dental decay, and that when applied frequently in low concentrations, it increases the rate of growth and size of tooth enamel, which will help to reverse the formation of small cavities.
Modern studies however, show that dental decay rates are so low that the effects of water fluoridation cannot actually be measured, which effectively means that the benefits of water fluoridation, if any, are not clinically relevant.
There are also various other ways to provide your teeth with fluoride; toothpaste has fluoride in it and there is also a one-time gel treatment that takes a mere 15 minutes and lasts a lifetime.
Fluoride is an industrial-grade chemical that is often contaminated with small indefinite quantities of toxic heavy metals such as arsenic, lead and radium which accumulate in our bodies over time and are associated with causing cancer. Even Toothpaste labels contain warnings regarding the dangers of swallowing too much toothpaste at one time due to the fluoride content, so why do governments insist on putting it in our water?
According to the study published in The Lancet, “A systematic review identified five different similar industrial chemicals as developmental neurotoxicants: lead, methylmercury … arsenic and toluene … Six additional developmental neurotoxicants have also now been identified: manganese, fluoride …” The study notes that neurodevelopmental disabilities, including attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia and other cognitive impairments, are now affecting millions of children worldwide – a “pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity.”
If you are worried about the amount of fluoride you are putting into your body, switch to fluoride-free toothpastes and get a water cooler with a good filter that will rid your drinking water of all toxins including fluoride.
