Tips for cutting flouride out of your life:

Recommended Posts

Tips for cutting flouride out of your life:

1. Use a flouride-free toothpaste.

2. Substitute showers for hot baths.

3. Stop drinking water out of the tap (if you can avoid it). Alternatively, buy a filtration system (reverse osmosis is best).

4. Get your fluids by making healthier choices (substitute sugary soft drinks, energy drinks, and sports drinks for mineral and spring water).

I've read that flouride causes a rare form of bone cancer in women.

It's sad that many of the 8,000 toxic chemical compounds produced in this country are marketed as beneficial. Unconscionable that they end up in our mouths.

Does anybody know if it is  true that minerals in the water can cause urinary/kidney problems? 

Or that fluoride issue?

Not an easy solution to remove Fluoride. Pros and cons. Even have to be careful with 'bottled' water. Some things are not what they claim. Nothing will ever compare to the taste of the water from grandma's well. It was a drilled well. Best water I even had or will have. Grandparents eventually had to drill another deeper well, but the water had a different heavier taste.

 

Water Treatment Systems to Filter Fluoride or Remove Fluoride

- Activated Carbon Filters and sediment filters (example: standard pitcher filter) will do nothing to reduce or remove fluoride. One exception may be Carbon Char filters.

- Alumina Filters will remove up to 99% of fluoride from water but they add aluminum. That could definitely be a problem for most people!

- KDF Filters do NOT remove fluoride. KDF stands for Kinetic Degradation Fluxion and consists of high-grade copper/zinc media.

- Reverse Osmosis Systems can remove fluoride 85-92% when new but lose effectiveness with time.  They also waste many gallons of water in order to get a gallon of treated water, so they are not particularly environmentally friendly.

- Ion Exchange Filters can remove fluoride (a negative ion) almost 99+ % until the anion resin is exhausted.

- Water Distillation Systems are superior at removing fluoride.  Third party lab testing reports show that the removal rate of fluoride by an AquaNui distiller is greater than 99%.  Water filters that remove fluoride are an option, but for long-term continuous removal, distillation is,  by far, the most effective. 

A few links. Some are heavy reading.

Another problem in municipal water is the methods used to sanitize the water. I live near a point where they inject various chlorinating agents in concentrations that make the water smell like bleach late at night. The explanation for the high concentration is that is dilutes as it passes through the system fairly quickly and need to reach remote parts of the water delivery system. I wonder what wonderful byproducts are released from the plastic and metal pipes that this concentrate flows through as well as possibly weakening the same pipe chemically.

Well, if the pipes are lead and you "chemically weaken" or corrode the pipes, you will get very high amounts of lead in your drinking water. This is what happened in Flint, MI during the water crisis.

The reason for this was because the treatment facility did not add an anti-corrosion agent to the water. This is an EPA requirement, so the city of Flint was in violation of the law. What happened there was just sad as thousands of children were lead poisoned as a result!

Nova did a great program on what happened up there. (I get most of my current events from programs like Nova and Frontline.)

Chlorine (a carcinogen) in bath water can be neutralized with a teaspoon of vitamin c.

Chloroform gas (a carcinogen) is produced when we shower. Running the exhaust fan or opening the door should help.

Just keep in mind that the word 'chemical' has be demonized for a long time. Chemicals in the right context are a good thing. We are all made of them.

What we are technically talking about are chlorine containing compounds and not chlorine. Table salt anyone? NaCl. Its a great compound and important to our health.
