Fluoride in your Drinking Water Making You LOOK Older?

In the 1950′ a TV commercial convinced people that fluoride was outstanding for teeth. By brushing, yellow teeth would become white, and cavities would be eradicated. Dentists concurred and encouraged the use of fluoride. So, through clever marketing, it became an urban belief  that fluoride in toothpaste would be fabulous for strong healthy cavity free white teeth.

But why, when you read the toothpaste label, does it say, ‘do not swallow?’ Perhaps, this is because too much fluoride is toxic and could severely injure a child if he or she consumed a tube?

Today most believe that fluoride is extremely beneficial, to prevent cavities, and create white teeth. So when fluoridation of water began in the 1960′s very few questioned it, maybe people assumed that more was better.

But, fluoridation of drinking water is quite different than using a small amount for teeth ‘soap’- to be spit out. In drinking water it is ingested: swallowed. It is also absorbed through the skin when bathing.

Today two thirds of the United States add fluoride in water. Added to water, fluoride, appears to cause more problems than it solves, according to many researchers. Fluoride is not just in the toothpaste, and drinking water. It is also found in beverages, such as American beer, or soft drinks.

Then there is the fluoride-based pesticide on iceberg lettuce, etc.  In addition, fluoride is in some antidepressants (to lower aggressive behavior?) and is thought to be partially responsible for cancers, osteoporosis, lowered IQ, immune dysfunction. Fluoride is ubiquitous.

Less well known is the increasing evidence about it aging a person’s skin faster.

Fluoride is a ‘hydrofluoric acid’, which is a compound of fluorine (a toxic reactive and gaseous element). Fluoride was a key chemical in atomic bomb production, according to declassified documents. Today, synthetically produced fluoride uses industrial waste products from the phosphate fertilizer industry. That doesn’t sound healthy to me.

Where are the long term studies showing the benefits of fluoridated water? The adverse effects of fluoridation appear to be outweighing the benefits as seen in most scientific studies. Some communities are so concerned about the adverse effects of fluoridated water that they are banning it in their cities.More than 90% of western Europe has chosen fluoride-free water.  

Drs. R.N. Mukherjee and F.H. Sobels from the University of Leiden in Holland found that fluoride increased the frequency of genetic damage in sperm cells which. Austrian researchers proved in the 1970s that as little as 1ppm fluoride concentration disrupts DNA repair enzymes by 50%.

Dr. John Yiamouyiannis Ph.D., a well known authority on the biological effects of fluoride, found that fluoride can cause aging skin. When DNA can’t repair damaged cells, aging happens quicker. Fluoride it is thought, prematurely ages the body, mainly through distortion of the enzyme shape, resulting in collagen breakdown, eczema, tissue damage, skin wrinkling, genetic damage, and immune suppression.

Do you know what is in your water?  Yes, your bottled water might also contain fluoride. Skin creams, botox, fillers, may help the fill the dry cracks, but, check out fluoride reduction for smoother silkier skin.
