How is Fluoride Bad for You?

Not all countries add fluoride in their water. In Western Europe only 3% of the population consumes fluoridated water compared to the U.S where people are drinking more fluoridated water than the rest of the world combined. According to fluoridealert.org, there is no difference in tooth decay between Western nations that fluoridate their water compared to those that don’t.

The fluoride industry claims fluoride is good for our health and that it’s created through a natural process. The process of making fluoride actually involves using a corrosive acid from fertilizer. This process would cause significant harm to the environment if exposed. Fluoride goes through a dilution process when being put into our tap water which allows it to be deemed as “safe”

Consider not only is the water itself effected by the fluoride but think about how much we use water in for our foods and beverages. The foods and beverages that need water as an essential ingredient are effected also.

  • drinking distilled water/ purchasing a distillation unit
  • refusing a fluoride treatment at the dentist
