with your city (luckily we only have chlorine and other harmful chemicals ) but how about tea? I've never seen a teabag with that on it?
I buy all my teas in leaf form (valerian, hibiscus,lavender,green, black etc) but are they still processed with fluoride as well?
It's not a matter of processing, the plant they make tea from LIKES fluoride, and will pick up any from the ground it can get its little roots on.
That moves into the leaves, and Bob's your uncle.
Green tea has a lot of fluoride, comparatively. Black tea's your best bet.
eta: it likes aluminum, too.
