Purplemer, a star and flag for your post. As Iwinder stated we are against having fluoride forced upon us, and it has been since we were both very
young. We have had our RO system for several years recently realized just how much it we use it when last week the faucet broke and we were left
buying bottled water until it could be repaired (approx one week). Just seeing all those plastic bottles filling up the blue box gives you an
appreciation for the RO.
It is not just the fluoride but also the chlorine that makes our city tap water distasteful to us, some days you can smell it coming out of the tap.
Now I must agree with MrMaybeNot that the best solution is not to dump that stuff in the water to begin with. Our city council is currently debating
that process to see if it should be discontinued or not.
I like the idea of a natural filtration method as outlined in the article. If anyone is more knowledgeable from a botany standpoint I would be
interested to know if the basil actually neutralizes the fluoride or does it absorb and store it in its cells. If this is the case then what will
become of the plants when they can no longer handle any more? I can see that you wouldn't want to put the basil into the food source or even compost
Thanks again for starting this post, the only way we will ever be free of fluoride in our drinking water is for more people like you, and others on
ATS, to stand up and let their voices be heard.
