THE HEALTH ISSUE WITH FLUORIDE
Researchers have found a link between fluoride in pregnant woman’s urine and a lower measure of their children’s intelligence. A new study just published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives (September 19, 2017) says “higher levels of maternal urinary fluoride during pregnancy…were associated with lower scores on tests of cognitive function in the offspring at 4 and 6-12 years old.”
The Effect of Fluoride on Children
According to FLUORIDEALERT.ORG, “the loss of IQ is very large.” Dr. Howard Hu, the principal investigator states…”It also suggests that prenatal nervous system may be more sensitive to fluoride compared to that of school-aged children.” Parents should filter home water supplies to remove heavy metals like lead, mercury and fluoride and BPA, a synthetic compound that mimics estrogen in the body causing some adverse effects. Charcoal filters will not remove these and other toxins. Only a reverse osmosis system is sufficient to create safe, alkaline drinking water.
Dr. Paul Connett stated, “It started at a time when Asbestos lined our pipes, lead was added to gasoline, PCB filled our transformers and DDT was deemed to be ‘safe and effective.”Forced Fluoridation violates an individual’s right to informed consent to medication.
Although fluoride has lowered rates of dental decay in children up to the age of 18, it accumulates in our bones and the pineal gland (which some writers refer to as the third eye). Adults get no additional dental benefits from drinking fluoride, which works as a topical agent. It would be cheaper and safer to give every child a fluoride rinse and let them just spit. A tube of toothpaste is an outmoded delivery system and most contain preservatives and dangerous foaming agents, Sodium Laureth Sulfate or Triclosan.
ALKALINE PREVENTS TOOTH DECAY WITHOUT FLUORIDE
An alkaline lifestyle: a diet high in fruits and vegetables and no processed food, alkaline water and alkaline rinsing immediately after consuming acidic foods, buffers saliva and allows for the natural remineralization of teeth. Proper pH levels will reduce erosion and sensitivity (use litmus paper to record your oral health). Bad bacteria prefer an acid environment feed by the consumption of simple processed sugars and starches.
The balance of the oral microbiome and the redeposition of minerals, only occurs in an alkaline salivary system. Baking Soda powders or salt products have been the traditional format for an alkaline mouthwash.
