The government says that fluoride is harmless, but others disagree, and I am one of them. After experimenting for years with my food, water, and health and wellness routine, it is obvious to me that clean and pure water is near to the most important element for you to function well (most importantly is your attitude, of course).
The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) says that fluoride promotes “dental health“, unless you get too much, and then, it can increase the “likelihood of bone fractures” and may result “in effects on bone leading to pain and tenderness”. But that is “only” if you get too much. How would anyone know how much anyone else is getting?
Of course, sometimes the government ‘gets it wrong’ – like in the case of triclosan, that was approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), but has been shown to be an anti-bacterial chemical that can harm or change the endocrine system (hormones) in animals. It was “approved”, but that never meant it was “safe” or “good” for people. You see, sometimes, the government can get it wrong.
Government, as you know, is just a collection of human beings – not necessarily endowed with more intelligence than you or I or anyone else. Mistakes can be made.
There is mounting evidence that fluoride in your water can be detrimental to your body. The most resounding and dangerous effect being damage to the brain. The EPA has a study showing “substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity“. Wait?!?! This is the same agency saying it is good for us and safe to consume over a period of a lifetime? That doesn’t make a lot of sense. In fact, I think it is criminal.
People deserve a choice. Just like the GMO (genetically modified organisms) debate. Most will agree that it should not be in our food supply at all – but all people should agree that we should be able to make this choice for ourself. It is criminal to be consuming something that is bad for us that is being deliberately put into our water by a government agency. Rebellion from such a system means standing up at the county-level of government to get it out of our water – are you up to it?
