Dentists Blame Bottled Water for Low Fluoride Levels

Fluoride in Bottled Water

Story at-a-glance -

  • Water fluoridation is ineffective at preventing dental decay. Rates of dental caries in non-fluoridated regions are often lower than in fluoridated areas
  • Fluoride is often said to build stronger teeth, but the fluorapatite layer formed on your teeth from fluoride is a mere six nanometers thick (you'd need 10,000 of these layers to get the width of a strand of hair)
  • Fluoride is a toxic chemical that accumulates in your tissues over time, wreaks havoc with enzymes, and produces a number of serious adverse health effects, including neurological and endocrine dysfunction
  • Fluoride accumulates in your body over time, and children are particularly at risk for adverse effects of overexposure
  • For strong teeth, avoid fluoridated water and fluoridated toothpaste. Make sure you consume a diet rich in whole foods, fermented vegetables, and grass-fed meats, which will ensure you're getting plenty of the minerals that are so important for strong teeth
