well i for one am always cautious about what i put into my body.
i hold the opinion that fluoride is dangerous, so i tried to remove it from my daily routine.

got fluoride free water, got fluoride free toothpaste and so on.

but now i've stumbled upon an article and interview that are most interesting.
i for one didn't know this.

so i thought i'd share with ATS.
maybe this is common knowledgde i don't know.
please read and watch the interviews.

they're very enlightning imho.

educate yourself about the (potential) dangers of your food!


Fluoridated tap water and toothpaste are oftentimes considered the main sources of fluoride exposure, but it turns out that common food items could actually be largely contributing to your fluoride intake. According to fluoride expert Jeff Green, who has been actively protesting and studying the effects of fluoride on the body for other 15 years, one common food product contains up to 180 times more fluoride than your fluoridated tap water!

According to Green, the culprit is non-organic food, but not just one kind. If you’re still eating conventionally-farmed food products, you may be unknowingly exposing yourself to extreme levels of fluoride. Green says this is made possible by fluoride going incognito within the food supply in a very concerning way:


i didn't know this.
i need to watch my diet even closer



While Green states that a large number of non-organic produce items can contain shocking levels of this fluoride-based pesticide, iceberg lettuce may be one of the largest offenders. In fact, iceberg lettuce can now be laced with a startling 180 parts per million (ppm) of fluoride – 180 times higher than the ‘recommended’ water fluoridation level. This ‘health’ food could actually be corroding your body with heavy levels of fluoride. But what other seemingly-healthy produce items contain high amounts of fluoride?

Citrus fruits are actually allowed to contain 95 ppm’s of sodium fluoride.
Potatoes can have as much as 22 ppm’s on the outside, and 2 ppm inside.
Raisins are allowed 55 ppm’s.


really a 180 times??!?

well done! Flouride should not be allowed in our food supply. Period. It numbs the brain, and destroys the body. It is still listed as a poison and is used to kill rats. But its ok for us to eat?

star and flag.

great vid!

and this is due too water fluoridation.

the food you eat can contain 180 times that amount


man this was a real shocker for me.

While I also believe that Flouride is a poison in the way it is distributed to us, I would urge caution in evaluating anything Dr Mercola is promoting.

He uses scare tactics as part of his marketing campaigns and is very "flexible" in his interpretation of data.

Not saying wrong, but get a second (or third) opinion.

Well i don't really care who the messenver is, i care a out the message.


The MCLG for fluoride is 4.0 mg/L or 4.0 ppm. EPA has set this level of protection based on the best available science to prevent potential health problems. EPA has set an enforceable regulation for fluoride, called a maximum contaminant level (MCL), at 4.0 mg/L or 4.0 ppm. MCLs are set as close to the health goals as possible, considering cost, benefits and the ability of public water systems to detect and remove contaminants using suitable treatment technologies. In this case, the MCL equals the MCLG, because analytical methods or treatment technology do not pose any limitation. EPA has also set a secondary standard (SMCL) for fluoride at 2.0 mg/L or 2.0 ppm. Secondary standards are non-enforceable guidelines regulating contaminants that may cause cosmetic effects (such as skin or tooth discoloration) or aesthetic effects (such as taste, odor, or color) in drinking water. EPA recommends secondary standards to water systems but does not require systems to comply. However, states may choose to adopt them as enforceable standards. Tooth discoloration and/or pitting is caused by excess fluoride exposures during the formative period prior to eruption of the teeth in children. The secondary standard of 2.0 mg/L is intended as a guideline for an upper bound level in areas which have high levels of naturally occurring fluoride. The level of the SMCL was set based upon a balancing of the beneficial effects of protection from tooth decay and the undesirable effects of excessive exposures leading to discoloration.

Some 90 times the recommended amount of fluoride in in your water that's in your food surely can't be good.

Yet another reason to purchase organic as much as your budget can afford.

I quit drinking and smoking, and that more than made up for switching to organics much more than before.

Next year will be acquiring land, and tapping into an aquifier for clean fresh water! After the well is setup, will begin construction on huge greenhouses to start up hydroponic systems. Will be delivering produce to your door, pesticide, fluoride, chlorine, and GM free

Well, it stands to reason, if the water is flouridated, and they water the crops with it, anything juicy with a high water content is going to be full of flouride. And if it builds up over repeated waterings, then LOTS of it.

I was shocked at the amount that is our food.

But i guess this isn't interestinv enough.

This der es more attention. Imho.

(not looking for flags or stars, just discussion)

Excellent!
Our food supply is contaminated.
You, dear sir, are fighting the GOOD FIGHT!
Star and flag for you!

Keep educating!

"Scare tactics", huh. Everyone better get off ATS immediately then, information can be scary.

It would be a great idea however, to talk to your doctor about the latest scientific studies. They would be more than eager to discuss those with you and how it relates to your health.

Haha


Then it's time to read the article and cut back on the fluoride


ATS is slow today..

Thoughts ATS?

Pretty significant news that pertains to ALL of us!

i think some of the people here don't want to be educated or rather stick their heads in the sand, judging by (the lack of) replies so far.

Fearmongering doctor or....?

Yes, too much flouride is bad. So is too much of just about anything.
But for Natural Society to say this is a bit ingenious. They imply that organic produce is free of fluoride.

While Green states that a large number of non-organic produce items can contain shocking levels of this fluoride-based pesticide, iceberg lettuce may be one of the largest offenders.
naturalsociety.com...

From the transcript:

DM: Fluoride is naturally present in the soil.
JG: Right. It’s active in the soil and it’s taken up whereas most plants would just die and not utilize it at all. There are cases where people have actually taken the powdered type of dry tea that they make for iced tea during the day. They had actually gotten the skeletal fluorosis which is basically the accumulation of so much fluoride in your bones that they are basically becoming crippled by the fluoride itself just because they drink that much tea and the tea had that high concentration and nobody told them about it.

as you said..

organic food isn't free from fluoride.

not in a long run.


The US Department of Agriculture's (USDA) revised rule on National Organic Standards (NOS), proposed in March 2000, was finalized in December. For the most part, the standards have been written with care and integrity. For the rest, they attracted over 40,000 comments from the public. The standards were first proposed in 1997 and included proposals to use sewage sludge, irradiation, antibiotics in livestock, and genetically modified organisms. USDA withdrew the proposal after receiving over 275,000 comments from the public-- the most comments received on any US agency proposal in history.

In the main the public's efforts on this issue paid off well. In the final NOS the four practices listed above were out, but unfortunately, despite over 100 comments, those concerned about fluoride were ignored. Incredibly, the new standards allow the use of the toxic substance sodium fluoride in organic agriculture.


bolding is mine.

so people.
now we're getting somewhere
