Water is unarguably one of the basic needs for human survival in today’s world. So what happens to us biologically and collectively when one of the master basics, water, is for the vast majority deprived of its proficiency? Altered with toxins? Not properly filtered of all the waste, antibiotics and chemicals that pollute it?
What most people are over-looking is the fact that since the 1960′s, fluoride has been added to the water supply in the vast majority of cities all across North America, and many other countries worldwide.
Those who are aware of this tend to assume that fluoridation of the water supply is somehow a good thing, so they’ve ‘heard.’ Well, we all know what can happen when one ‘assumes,’ enough said. The information is out there now, we simply need to be responsible for our ‘disregards’ and take action to shift a positive change where attention imperatively has to be payed by you, by us, everybody. And if you are already aware and have already taken action, then THANK YOU!
Here are some basic facts about fluoride, you can get more detailed information fromwww.fluoridealert.org or conduct your own research.
Allow me to interject for a moment, that often nowadays, sponsored opinions, and ad campaign narratives are misconstrued for facts.
- Fact #1: 97% Of Western Europe has CHOSEN fluoride-free water (simple collective action had to be taken).
- Fact #2: Fluoride is the ONLY chemical added to drinking water for the purpose of medication (to prevent tooth decay). Google image search ‘fluoride effects’ and see what kind of information comes up.
- Fact #3: Contrary to previous belief, fluoride has minimal benefit when swallowed.
- Fact #4: Fluoridated water is no longer recommended for babies.
- Fact #5: Ingestion of fluoride has little benefit, but many side-effects. These side-effects include but are not limited to: cancer, brain damage in unborn fetuses, dental fluorosis, skeletal fluorosis, the lowering of IQ, memory loss, motivation loss, an impaired immune system, infertility, thyroid problems, autism, DNA damage, and receding gums.
The bottom line is that fluoride is a very destructive and dangerous chemical to be ingesting and absorbing unknowingly on a daily basis.
Instead of focusing on the “how did this happen?” Or “Why would poison be added in our water?” Or “making an angry phone call to the city,” it is important to focus on the solution and what can be done moving forward to neutralize yourself and your family from continued fluoride poisoning. Through personal responsibility and through knowledge, one can easily solve this problem through a simple individual and consequently inter-connected concerted effort.
It is a simple 2-step action plan that you can implement today! Firstly, on a personal level, use an adequate filtration system in your family’s home for your drinking and bathing water. It is crucially important to note, that our skin is the largest organ of our body and the most absorbent, so it is equally important to filter your shower/bath water. Secondly, and most importantly for the love and health of our extended family and friends who are not yet aware, share this knowledge.
And to wrap it all up and “squash this fluoride beef“ and other collective ‘beefs’ we will be elaborating on in the Master The Basics And We Will Thrive articles. We must awaken to these past mistakes that were purposely implemented and nip them in the bud. It’s really easy and simple to fix, so for your best health and the health of your parents and children, just get it done!
