Most of us will remember having to take Fluoride Chewable tablets as kids. Our dentists gave them to us to help prevent cavities and strengthen our teeth. Independent studies are giving worrying results that maybe it should rather be avoided. Here’s why we need to ask: Is fluoride good for you or is there a legitimate reason to think otherwise.
Fluoride is one of the 13 most plentiful minerals in the earth. It is added to the USA’s drinking water but no-where else. This strange fact made us look at this element a bit closer. An organization called FAN, headed by attorney Michael Connet has made a video to raise awareness on fluoride and the dangers that it can hold for our health.
The main action of fluoride is to kill the bacteria (Streptococcus mutans) which creates acids from the sugars in your mouth. Acid erodes the teeth, which gives rise to cavities. Another fact that makes you wonder is fluoride good for you, is if it really mineralizes your teeth. That job actually belongs to your saliva. Saliva bathes the teeth with calcium and phosphorous. So, another point lost for fluoride? Yes.
Is fluoride good for you and is there a healthier alternative?
Fluoride has been linked to some eyebrow-raising health issues.
There have been over 34 human studies and 100 animal studies linking fluoride to brain damage,3 including lower IQ in children, and studies have shown that fluoride toxicity can lead to a wide variety of health problems, including:
|Increased lead absorption||Disrupts synthesis of collagen||Hyperactivity and/or lethargy||Muscle disorders|
|Thyroid disease||Arthritis||Dementia||Bone fractures|
|Lowered thyroid function||Bone cancer (osteosarcoma)||Inactivates 62 enzymes and inhibits more than 100||Inhibited formation of antibodies|
|Genetic damage and cell death||Increased tumor and cancer rate||Disrupted immune system||Damaged sperm and increased infertility|
What can you use instead of “normal” toothpaste?
There are healthier alternatives to do the job fluoride has been tasked to do. Xylitol toothpaste is a cleansing paste that helps with the effective removal of plaque and bacteria. Just swap your usual toothpaste with a 100% Xylitol and fluoride-free option. These are easy to find at any health store.
For further protection, take up Oil Pulling. The Cocobaci Oil Pulling program makes use of pure Coconut oil, which is pushed and pulled through your teeth to dislodge any bacteria, stains, and plaque. Coconut oil is antibacterial and completely safe, giving you clean teeth and fresh breath, all day long.
The formula also contains choice essential oils and vegetal stem cell therapy called Gemmotherapy. This will help to support your body’s natural detox process, which is a great idea when you want to get the fluoride out even faster.
