According to the study, “In many areas of the world, hypothyroidism is a major health concern and in addition to other factors — such as iodine deficiency—fluoride exposure should be considered as a contributing factor. The findings of the study raise particular concerns about the validity of community fluoridation as a safe public health measure.”
In the United States, about 70% of public water supplies are fluoridated. Intake cannot be controlled, it’s available to everyone regardless of age or health, and it accumulates in the body. While fluoride is often associated with preventing tooth decay, research has found no significant relationship between tooth decay and fluoride intake among children. Many children are instead being overexposed to fluoride, leading to dental fluorosis, a discoloring of tooth enamel caused by too much fluoride.
The health risks of drinking fluoridated water are numerous. It can have negative impacts on oral health, interfere with brain functions, cause damage to the pineal gland, affect thyroid function, damage bone and decrease overall health. Knowing which bottled water brands to avoid is vital to keeping yourself and your family safe from the damaging affects of consuming too much fluoride.
