Do you consent to flouride in your water?
by Thomas Cho
Most of you are aware of the food you’re consuming every day but what about your water? We tend to take our water for granted because it’s potable and you don’t get sick.well not immediately. Our water contains fluoride which our government claims helps maintain healthy teeth. With so many larger issues to tackle, do you really believe the Australian Government is worried about your teeth? Let’s find out what you’re really dealing with.
What is Fluoride?
Fluoride is a by-product from the phosphate fertiliser industry. It’s actually a toxic chemical that needs to be handled carefully with masks, gloves and safety suits. In some places calcium fluoride is found naturally occurring in the water, and it causes teeth to be yellow and a little ugly but extremely strong. However the type of fluoride that is dumped into our drinking water is not calcium fluoride, but silicofluorides which are 85 times more toxic.
According to an article in The Weston A. Price Foundation by Anita Shattuck, “They are non-biodegradable, hazardous waste products that come straight from the pollution scrubbers of big industries. If not dumped in the public water supplies, these silicofluorides would have to be neutralized at the highest rated hazardous waste facility at a cost of $1.40 per gallon (or more depending on how much cadmium, lead, uranium and arsenic are also present). Cities buy these unrefined pollutants and dump them–lead, arsenic and all–into our water systems. Silicofluorides are almost as toxic as arsenic, and more toxic than lead.”
This toxic substance needs to be disposed ‘safely’ somehow so it’s added to our tap water. I never consented to this and I’m sure nor did you. These chemicals do not get treated or purified, leaving your drinking water with high levels of toxic substances such as arsenic and lead. We are being poisoned through our tap water and we can’t do anything about it.
How Fluoride Affects Your Health
We’ve been told that fluoride prevents tooth decay. I don’t believe for a second that toxic chemicals can benefit your teeth and have no other side effects. Fluoride is a known neurotoxin and a Harvard study confirms that fluoride reduces children’s IQ and brain damage. Here are some other complications associated with fluoride consumption:
•Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease (neurotoxicity and cell death)
•Bone and tooth damage (fluoride is actually known to accumulate in your bones, building up a toxicity level).
•Increased risk of some cancers and tumours
•Damages sperm/increase infertility.
How You Can Take Precautions
First of all, ensure that your water source is non-fluoridated. Filters are a good option but nothing beats a natural source full of life and energy.
Secondly, detox. When your body is loaded up with chemicals not only from fluoride but a million other sources (including what you put on your skin every day) it’s vital that you cleanse your body on a regular basis. You only have one body so treat it well! Nourish your body with plenty of alkaline forming food which are most fruits and vegetables. These foods help break down acidic waste and chemicals and flush it out of your body. We’re so prone to consuming foods high in sugar, processed foods and toxic fluoride in our water and detoxifying your body will help you balance your pH levels.
Lastly, drink more water (preferably alkaline because it expedites the cleansing process). You may not be able to control what’s goes into your water supply, but you can control what you put in your body so be mindful.
