Fluoride in drinking water
Fluoride in Drinking Water
Fluoride or Fluorosilicic acid is a corrosive chemical agent, derived from toxic gases produced in the manufacture of phosphoric acid & phosphate fertilisers, why is fluoride in our drinking water.
Fluorosilicic acid is the most corrosive chemical agent known to man. It is derived from toxic gases produced in the manufacture of phosphoric acid & phosphate fertilisers. Ireland is one of the only countries in Europe to fluoridate it’s water supply. 98% of Europe either stopped, rejected or banned it.

Endemic skeletal fluorosis is a chronic metabolic bone & joint disease caused by ingesting large amounts of fluoride either through water or rarely from foods of endemic areas. Fluoride is a cumulative toxin which can alter accretion & resorption of bone tissue. It also affects the homeostasis of bone mineral metabolism.

Our exploratory analysis found an association between fluoride exposure in drinking water during childhood & the incidence of osteosarcoma among males but not consistently among females. Further research is required to confirm or refute this observation.

To assess the roles of dietary protein (Pr) and calcium (Ca) level associated with excessive fluoride (F) intake and the impact of dietary Pr, Ca, and F on thyroid function, 144 30-day-old Wistar albino rats were randomly allotted to six groups of 24 (female:male = 1:1).

A new study has found that the protective shield fluoride forms on teeth is up to 100 times thinner than previously believed. This raises questions about how this purported cavity fighter really works. It has long been believed that fluoride changes the main mineral in tooth enamel, hydroxyapatite, into a more-decay resistant material called fluorapatite.
