Most tap water in the United States is laced with fluoride, a toxic industrial chemical that has been widely promoted as being healthy for the public.
In reality, however, fluoride is a poison that may harm your health. Consider this:
- The American Dental Association admits that fluoride is harmful to the development of teeth
- Fluoride is used in rat poison
- Ninety percent of the fluoride used to fluoridate U.S. water systems comes from the fertilizer industry and may contain trace amounts of various heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and arsenic
The only states where less than 25 percent of the tap water is fluoridated are Hawaii, Oregon, Utah, Montana, and New Jersey. The others fluoridate from 25 percent to over 75 percent of their water supplies.
Countertop and pitcher filters typically only filter out particulate matter, not fluoride. You can remove fluoride from your drinking water using a reverse osmosis filtering system.
