How Safe is Flouride in Drinking Water?
We have had flouride in drinking water for many years now, since the sixties in fact when it was thought to help with tooth decay. Modern research shows us that it can now have harmful side effects and the amount should be lowered.
The World Health Organization recommends much lower levels than we currently have, as it has been linked to bone cancer in younger boys and about 10,000 cancer deaths annually. The problem is that what they add is not natural at all but a waste product.
The types of flouride in drinking water added is mainly silicoflouride and is the waste product of the aluminum industries and as a result is 80% more toxic than the natural type.
It is easy to get an overdose simply by eating and drinking processed foods that are made with it as well as regularly drinking large amounts of water that is not optimally fluoridated, and using toothpaste that contains it.
Most experts accept now that with today’s lifestyle and the amount of products that contain fluoride coupled with the fact that it is not proven to actually help tooth decay, that the amount should be significantly lowered to protect public health.
With the risk so great with flouride in drinking water and the solution so simple, why take the chance?
Home water filtration is the easiest, most effective and most economical way to have safe, healthy water for you and your family.
The best types to remove fluoride are activated carbon systems with a multi-stage process and ion exchange to remove not only most of the fluoride but also all of the other toxic contaminants that are lurking in our supplies.
That leaves you with only safe, healthy drinking water that helps to keep the whole family healthy and safe.
