“The controversy about fluoride is in the news again!
I remember hearing this debate as a child growing up at Sonnewald and I recall seeing my very busy father, hand writing letters to the editor. Over fifty years later, we are still having this discussion.
Is fluoride a by product of aluminum smelting and more toxic than lead? Does it decrease oxygen at the cellular level, inhibit enzyme activity, and suppress thyroid function? Is aluminum often high in hair analyses of dementia and Alzheimer’s patients? Is fluoride a toxic, non-biodegradable, environmental pollutant?
Do your research. If you conclude you want fluoride in your body, there are many ways to get it. Your dentist will probably provide fluoride treatments or your doctor can write you a prescription for tablets. You can even swallow some of your toothpaste and mouthwash.
There are numerous ways to add fluoride to your diet without adding hazardous waste to mine.”
