Just how badly is fluoride really affecting our health? Is it really as bad as everyone thinks? Recent studies have shown that fluoride is terrible for our health, high levels of fluoride have been shown to cause neurotoxicity in adults which causes negative impacts on the brain when it comes to learning and memory. It has also been found by the Harvard School of Public Health and China Medical University in Shenyang that fluoride negatively affects the cognitive development in children.At least seventy percent of the United States water supplies are fluoridated meaning this could be happening on a widespread scale.
All water treatment chemicals, with the exception of fluoride, are added to make drinking water safe and pleasant to consume. Fluoride is the only chemical added to treat people who consume the water, rather than the water itself. Fluoridating water supplies can thus fairly be described as a form of mass medication, which is why most European countries have rejected the practice.
For many years people thought fluoride was able to prevent tooth decay, but there is no significant evidence that can link the two. Fluoride can actually be detrimental to oral health. Recent large-scale studies from the United States have found little practical or statistical difference in tooth decay rates among children living in fluoridated versus non-fluoridated areas. In addition, data complied by the World Health Organization (WHO) shows that tooth decay rates have declined just as rapidly in non-fluoridated western countries as they have in fluoridated western countries.

Many people have bought the marketing that bottled water is healthier. Unfortunately, they are paying higher prices for a bottle of water filled with health damaging fluoride. The main chemicals used to fluoridate drinking water are known as “silicofluorides” (i.e., hydrofluorosilicic acid and sodium fluorosilicate). Silicofluorides are not pharmaceutical-grade fluoride products; they are unprocessed industrial by-products of the phosphate fertilizer industry.
