Some people think that avoiding artificial fluoridation chemicals is as
simple as avoiding drinking tap water. But it is not as simple as it may seem, especially, if you are purchasing bottled water that contains the fluoride chemical.
Some bottled water actually comes from municipal tap water. So, if that community is fluoridating, that bottled water contains the fluoride chemical.
Most bottled water companies have started putting the filtration information on the label.
If the bottle states that it has been filtered by reverse osmosis or distilled, you can be sure it does not contain the chemical, and carbon filters will filter out most everything except fluoride.
But carbon filters will not filter out fluorosilicic acid, PFOA or PFOS and boiling it only concentrates it.
Some spring water contains the chemical. Just pay attention to the label and if not stated, you can call the bottling company.
But, because more people have to purchase water to drink and cook with, there is an increase of plastic bottle waste. Some people recycle while others just toss it in the trash.
Creating more for landfills, that is if the plastic actually makes it to the dump, and is not thrown on the side of road, all because we cannot use the water we already pay for that comes straight out of our faucet, most of which runs down the drain, gets flushed down the toilet or used watering plants and yard, which ends up in streams, ponds and lakes and no where near the poor children’s teeth.
Here’s a quote from Dr. J. William Hirzy, an Environmental Protection Agency scientist: “If it gets in the air, it’s a pollutant, if it gets into the river, it’s a pollutant, if it gets into the lake, it’s a pollutant, but if it goes straight into your drinking water system, it’s not a pollutant. That’s amazing.”
When it took science and scientists to make the artificial fluoridation chemical why are some so opposed to listening to scientists about the dangers of fluoride?
These are the very scientists whose job is to warn of harmful environmental pollutants.
The EPA union of scientists has been warning of the dangers of water fluoridation for years.
I’ll discuss in a future letter the different ways we are getting exposed other than water to what is known as fluoride through our environment, food, cookware, medicine, workplace and more.
