Researchers from Rajasthan University in India have discovered that the Tulsi plant, also known as Holy Basil, can be used to significantly reduce the amount of fluoride in drinking water
An experiment was conducted in the Yellareddyguda village of Narketpally Mandal. The researchers soaked 75mg of Tulsi leaves in 100ml of water that contained 7.4 parts per million of fluoride in the water. After only soaking the Tulsi leaves for eight hours, it was discovered that the level of fluoride in the water was reduced from 7.4 parts per million, to only 1.1 parts per million.
Groundwater with fluoride concentration above the permissible limit set by WHO i.e 1.5mg/l have been recorded in several parts of the world. In 1984, WHO estimated that more than260 million people living all over the world consume water with fluoride concentration above 1mg/l (WHO, 1984)

I bought a whole house filter to get rid of the fluoride because I know that even If I removed it for drinking, I was still inhaling it in the shower. Inhalation is a great medication (or poison) delivery method. Straight to the lungs!
