Fluoride is a toxic industrial waste product, which may also be contaminated with lead, arsenic, radionucleotides, aluminum and other industrial contaminants. The fluoride added to municipal water supplies is not pharmaceutical grade.
China does NOT allow water fluoridation because it’s too toxic and causes damage, according to their studies. Instead, the waste product from their phosphate fertilizer industry is shipped to the United States, where we add it to our water supply!
According to the research literature on oral hygiene, you should brush with no more than one-quarter of a milligram of fluoride. When you see a toothpaste ad, that long swirl of toothpaste is actually more than one month’s worth! To remain within “safe” limits, you’d have to use such a small amount of fluoridated toothpaste that one tube would last you several years.
Do you know that Poison control should be called if you swallow a quarter milligram of fluoride from toothpaste. It’s written on the back of your toothpaste tube. [Warning: Keep out of reach of children under 6 years of age. If more than used for brushing is accidently swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Center right away.] Bet you never saw that one coming.
Meanwhile just ONE glass of water can contain this amount of fluoride.
Long-term ingestion is harmful to the brain, digestive system, heart, bones… even the tooth enamel it’s supposed to help. Fluoride can weaken bones and ligaments, and cause muscle weakness and nervous system problems. High doses of fluoride in children before their permanent teeth come through the gums can cause tooth discoloration.
The decision to add fluoride to drinking water is made at the state or local level. In other words, people who couldn’t pass ninth-grade biology if their lives depended on it are making the decisions of fluoride in our drinking water. We handed the responsibility of our health to politicians who are too happy to eliminate our freedom of choice. From legitimate scientific research, the types of fluoride added to different water systems include fluorosilicic acid, sodium fluorosilicate, and sodium fluoride.

There is a little experiment anyone can do at home. Fill a container with tap water from your house, add a live feeder fish from the store. That fish will die in a matter of minutes. Our politicians tell us it’s okay for us to wash, clean and drink the same water.
You can make your own toothpaste: in a small container, mix 3 tbsp of sea salt, 3 tbsp of baking soda, 1 tbsp of glycerin, 2 drops of Watkins Peppermint extract. Stir well with a metal fork. If you want to make more like I do, please remember to stir with a fork before use, it will harden a bit after 2 weeks.
