Will be watching and drooling a bit...I love this kind of information and read up on it all the time. I just don't have to space in my life, or the
confidence really, to create a thread about it all, so thank you again. I seem to be insanely sensitive to additives and certain natural food, and
there are some things I never ever touch, like any kind of fizzy drink (totally toxic!). I'm seriously thinking about buying a water filter next. For
a few years I lived in a cottage in the middle of nowhere that had it's own private water supply straight from a well that was fed by water running
off the hills. I'm not saying it was perfect water, but it was pretty damn close, and most importantly, NOT fluoridated. Since I moved a year and a
half ago, I think there has been a definite drop in my mood cycle (not that I'm depressed at all), and a absolute drop in my creative/spiritual life,
which worries me more. But then...I'm possibly at the extreme end of sensitive to this stuff, so maybe tiny differences would seem massive to me. I
know that most people simply have no idea how much this is all affecting them. Worse....they don't care, which I guess is the whole point.
Hope you get lots of stars and flags. Can't wait for the next thread.
If you want to get a water filter to remove fluoride, get a reverse osmosis filter. Brita, PUR, etc., don't work for that. Reverse Osmosis is the
only way. And don't get a whole-house one either, unless you care to waste a LOT of water. While it would be best to cleanse out the shower water,
clothes water, etc., the benefits are miniscule for the cost and consumption. Use the RO for drinking water and for cooking. I got mine from Costco,
for somewhere around $150. They use 3-5 gallons of water for every "clean" gallon you get, which is why I discourage the whole house. You don't
need to burn 5 gallons of water so your poop can swim in fresh, unfluoridated water
Don't know if its been mentioned further on from where I read, but for those who aren't aware, potassium idodide (KI) is a defender against
radioactivity (not all, but the worst of the persistent radiation) following q blast or accident. The radiation which is most dangerous dies off in a
couple weeks. The radioactive elements which last radioactive for thousands or millions of years - aren't very dangerous. Its those ones with a
half-life of 35 years you really need to be concerned about. So, as my aside, read up, and stock up, on KI for a nuclear "just in case." and get the
kind you're supposed to take, not the chemistry-experiment kind. Its not necessarily as pure as should be for human consumption.
