Reasons to Switch to a Fluoride-Free Toothpaste!

Fluoride toothpaste is the standard in the United States. Dentists promote its benefits (because that is what they are taught in school) and drug stores have shelves filled with the stuff. Though some proclaim there are benefits for the teethe when used (which there may be, I will not make a strict statement on that point) it is undeniable the the OTHER effects far outweigh any possible benefits.

First of all, the "recommended" amount of fluoride is VERY minimal. Think the size of a pea, cut in half. That is the recommended amount of fluoride toothpaste to be used. Most people are using ten times that amount, twice a day. Plus (another thing to avoid) public drinking water is fluorinated. Even by the official "recommended" amount, people are being WAY over fluorinated.

Now to the effects that are not advertised by dentists and public health workers. Dental Fluorosis is becoming extremely common. Teethe become over fluorinated, the enamel is weakened, and the teethe become discolored (so instead of benefiting teethe it actually harms them). It has been shown to damage bones and brain, which leads to a lower IQ. What got me off of fluoride, years ago, was learning that Hilter had fluoride added to the drinking water in the concentration camps, which made the people apathetic and compliant.In addition to harming our bodies and minds, it is also extremely harmful to the environment. Most of the fluorinated water goes right down the drain and back into the environment wreaking havoc. Plus, the United States is the only developed country to add fluoride to its drinking supply, if it is so great why is it not being consumed world wide?

Instead of just going with the main stream, or taking my word for it, take a minute to look into it. Below is a link to a short three minute video that will get you started.

here is another short (nine minute) video

Thankfully there is a very simple solution. Switch to a fluoride-free toothpaste and drink clean, fluoride-free water. Above is a picture of, and link to, my favorite toothpaste. This is the toothpaste that my holistic, fluoride-free dentist recommends!

It is the little things that we do every single day that have the greatest effect on our health.
