Are You Getting Too Much Flouride?

For the last 20 years, I have been told by many famous nutritionists, herbalists, iridologists and medical doctors that flouride is not good for my health.  I was taught that flouride would actually weaken my bones and teeth, unlike what dentists and doctors have been telling their patients for years.  In the last 5 years, I learned from Dr. David Brownstein that flouride displaces iodine.  Iodine is an important mineral for every cell in your body, especially the breasts, ovaries, testes and thyroid.  In fact, breast cancer survivors are being told to incorporate iodine into their diets.  Too bad they were not told this prior to being diagnosed with breast cancer.

According to the Denver Post, Saturday, January 8, 2011, “Federal health officials say many Americans are getting too much flouride, and it’s causing spots on children’s teeth and perhaps other, more serious problems.” “The U.S. Department of Health and Human services announced plans Friday to lower the recommended level of fluoride in drinking water for the first time in nearly 50 years, based on a fresh review of the science.” Fluoride is in our water supply, bottled water, toothpaste, soda and supplements. In fact, look at a tube of toothpaste.  It states, “Any child under 6 years of age, should only use a pea-sized amount.  Watch them brush and make sure they spit out the oothaste – not swallow it.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends consulting a dentists before using flouride toothpaste for a child younger than 2.” My family has been using a reverse osmosis water filtration system for 20 years. We do not brush our teeth with fluoride toothpaste.  In fact, my son is 17 years old.  He has never had a fluoride treatment at the dentist’s office.  He has never brushed his teeth with fluoride toothpaste.  He received his first cavity at the age of 16.   According to Dr. Bernard Jensen, tooth decay is caused from an imbalance of calcium and phosphorus in the body, which is the result of consuming too much sugar, stress and poor nutrition. Once again, the leaders in holistic health were accurate.
