Fluoride – why is it added to the water supply?

IAS News 18 February 2013 | 2 Comments

Like mercury that appeared in our blog last week, everyone has known that fluoride is a dangerous and toxic poison that accumulates in the body while at the same time being ineffective in preventing tooth decay – which is what it is supposedly used for. So why, even when we have studies upon studies of proof, is it still used in 70% of the water supplies?
It was from a successful promotional campaign that fluoride was used so extensively in water, and was linked to being a way to protect aluminum and steel producers from lawsuits against the fluoride pollution from their factories. However over the years it has been been shown to be a toxic waste product; which is added to the water supplies due to the high levels that need to be disposed of. However toxic waste disposal is expensive so this is one way to avoid these costs.
The CDC has claimed fluoridation as one of the top 10 public health achievements of the 20th century, even with the evidence that is fast stacking up against this process. The EPA’s National Health and Environmental Research Laboratory have classified fluoride as a chemical having substantial evidence of developmental toxicity. 25 studies have linked fluoride exposure to reduced IQ in children, including one from Harvard.
Fluoride builds up over time, and can have a detrimental effect on both teeth, bones and mental wellbeing. Problems such as dementia, arthritis, impaired thyroid function, muscle disorders, eye complaints, genetic damage and cell death, increased tumor and cancer growth, and a disruption to the immune system can all be caused by a build-up in fluoride.
The type of fluoride being added to the water supplies, is not even pharmaceutical grade, which of course would still lead to complications as it builds up over time. It is difficult to avoid it from the water supplies, but fluoride free toothpaste, and mouthwash is easily bought.
IAS can provide both Gengigel and Neydent toothpaste, which are both fluoride free.

    Wow, this article shines a light on the harsh reality we are facing with our water supply. I had no idea this was even an issue so to find out fluoride is found in 70 percent of drinking water is quite unsettling. I am definitely considering purchasing fluoride free toothpaste so I don’t add to the problem. I am wondering what else can be done to eliminate this toxic material from our water. I want my kids to be safe!
