Overview of Using Flouride Water & Its Chemistry
Is Fluoride Harmful?
More and more people are asking themselves serious questions and seeking serious answers about the Flouride in their drinking and bathing water...is it dangerous?...toxic or poisonous?...will it give me cancer or some other chronic or deadly disease? Will it harm my family and loved ones? The following information will help you get the truthful answers you need and rightfully deserve.
What Levels are safe?
The MCL (Maximum Contaminant Level) of Fluoride established for drinking water by the U.S. EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency) is 4 mg/L (or 4ppm). Municipal water treatment plants have historically added Flouride to the water to help prevent tooth decay, and they try to maintain a level of 1.5 - 2.5 mg/L (or 1.5 - 2.5 ppm). Water concentrations of Flouride above 5 mg/L (or 5ppm) is detrimental to ones tooth structure and overall health.
Where is Flouride Found?
- High concentrations are contained in waste water from the manufacture of glass, steel, aluminum, and foundry operations.
- Healthy natural, organic fluorine is present in food items such as fruits, vegetables, and nuts.
- Unhealthy inorganic fluorine, known as Fluoride (or other chemical names such as Sodium Fluoride (i.e: NaF or Na-F), HydroFluoSilicic acid (HFS), or Sodium SilicoFluoride (SSF), is a waste product of aluminum and is found in toothpaste, fertilizers and some rat poisons.
Should I Use Flouride Filtration?
It is said that approximately 2 out of every 3 people will battle cancer or some other chronic disease in their lifetime. With the odds of getting cancer or some other chronic disease so high, doesn't it make sense to minimize the overall toxin load on our bodies?
