If you have young children, you probably want them to grow up with strong, healthy bones and teeth. So you follow the advice of your trusted doctor and dentist as any good parent does.
One of the things we've been told since most of us were born is that fluoride is good for our teeth and that drinking fluoridated water is essential for our good health. The water in the United States has been fluoridated for over 60 years. The reason I began a little research is that when I had a fluoride treatment for tooth sensitivity, my teeth turned very yellow. So I wanted to see where fluoride came from, since it's something we take for granted, just like 99% of the ingredients on labels. I believe if a company used the French word for rat poison and put it on ice cream most of us would never notice it. After all, if something is made in the USA and sold in the USA then it must be good for us, right?
Did you know that it was proven many years ago that fluoride is a poison that causes cancer, bone loss and is associated with brain disorders? I am sure that while many of you read this, you will be saying it's just another one of those conspiracy theories. So think about this for a minute. For how many years did the big tobacco companies poison us without admitting that they knew smoking causes cancer?
Several reports published by research scientists explain how the use of fluoride in our water came about during the manufacturing and testing of the atom bomb. So I guess we've been human guinea pigs for many years.
Please read this article, not for me, but for you and your family.
Have you ever wondered why we take so much calcium (now added to almost everything we eat & drink) and still have such a high rate of osteoporosis? Could it be that we have more fluoride in our water than anywhere else? Fluoride has been proven to cause brittle bones.
As one article says:
"Fluoride is a pollutant - a by-product of copper, iron and aluminum manufacturing. The problem of how to legally dispose of fluoride was solved in the 1930's when a study (funded by one of the country's largest aluminum companies) concluded that fluoride prevented tooth decay. A successful public relations effort, helped along with some cooperative government cronies, resulted in the good news going out: this miracle chemical, when added to water supplies, will give everyone healthy teeth and brighter smiles."
Are you shaking your head and smiling, or does this give you pause? Maybe some of these studies will:

I guess now we know why our toothpaste warns "do not swallow."
