In order to keep my family fluoride free, there are a few measures we have taken. Our toothpaste is Nature’s Gate fluoride free toothpaste. We also do not do the fluoride treatment that our dentist recommends where they douse your children’s teeth in fluoride. Horrible when you read about theside effects of this procedure. We have a Nikken PiMag Waterfall water filter that not only removes fluoride and chlorine from our drinking water, it also adds back essential minerals as well as PH balanced water. Next on my list is to get a filter for our shower head so that we are not showering and bathing in fluoridated water. Children, especially infants, are very vulnerable to fluoride toxicity so it’s important to take any measures you can to protect them. One of the best things you can do is to start a local campaign to get your City to remove fluoride from our drinking water. Over 300 cities in America have removed fluoride from their public drinking water.
