Water purity is a widely recognized necessity for living a healthy life, however, it is shocking how many Americans have no concept of how safe their drinking water really is. Whether the water comes from a tap or a bottle, Americans seem to have very little knowledge of the source of the water that they drink and of the purification process, if any, that is used on that water.
Unfortunately, many Americans still buy into the idea of water fluoridation that has been sold to us under the guise of helping to provide better dental health for our children. The problem is that fluoridation doesn’t help your teeth or your body in general.
What does fluoridation do to the human body? Dr. Mercola tells us some of the effects:
“Scientific investigations have revealed that fluoride is an endocrine disrupting chemical, and a developmental neurotoxin that impacts short-term and working memory, and lowers IQ in children.
“It has been implicated as a contributing factor in the rising rates of both attention-deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD) and thyroid disease.”
The situation gets worse when one realizes that fluoride is actually a poison and that, while “research into the health effects of fluoride is based on pharmaceutical grade fluoride,” this is not the quality used in our drinking water. Dr Mercola further notes,
“However, a majority of water authorities do not even use pharmaceutical grade fluoride; they use hydrofluosilicic acid, or hexafluorosilicic acid — toxic waste products of the phosphate fertilizer industry, which are frequently contaminated with heavy metals such as arsenic, mercury, cadmium, lead, and other toxins.
“This is a key point that many fluoride proponents fail to address when arguing for its use. Indeed, holding elected officials accountable for procuring proof that the specific fluoridation chemical used actually fulfills fluoride’s health and safety claims and complies with all regulations, laws, and risk assessments required for safe drinking water, has been a successful strategy for halting water fluoridation in a number of areas around the US.”
That’s right, not only does fluoride not provide the benefits that were promoted to sell it to us, it is actually poisonous and what you are drinking may actually contain toxic waste.
We cannot urge you highly enough to investigate your water source so that you can protect your family from yet another instance of government selling us down a river when it comes to our health.
