As we all know fluoride is in are toothpastes and in our water supply. So is fluoride good for us? Well ill let you decide. Fluoride is not a nutrient that the body needs its a toxin. Research shows that fluoride is more poisonous than led and slightly less poisonous than arsenic. Fluoride is used in rat poison. So here are some fact on how it effects human biology. It causes motor dysfunction, IQ deficits and learning disabilities in humans, fluoride effects thyroid function and damages bones which is called skeletal fluorosis.
I’ve always been told that fluoride is good for are teeth to prevent cavities. but a fluoride deficiency does not cause tooth decay. so what does this mean for young kids, well there is a condition known as dental fluorosis. this happens during enamel formation which is a sign that an fluoride overdose has occurred.
I’m sure that by now your thinking that fluoride doesn’t sound like something you want to use, and that’s exactly what i thought when i learnt about this. So by using toothpastes that do not contain fluoride and filtering your water you can save yourself from future illness.
So to keep my teeth clean i use the Miessence toothpaste which comes in three delicious flavors mint,lemon,anise. This toothpaste contains bicarb soda which is a natural tooth cleaner and a proven tooth whitener. Bicarb soda is made up of small particles that can fit into the small crevices of your teeth and bring out all the dirt so it can be brushed away. Bicarb soda is a low abrasive which makes it gentle on teeth and gums.
the one thing i like most about this toothpaste is it is free from fluoride, aluminium, artificial sweeteners and detergents which are commonly found in popular commercial toothpastes.
so next time you are shopping for your families toothpaste be aware of the long term effects it could have on your family.
