The Truth about Fluoride! Yes, the stuff in Toothpaste...

Before there was the internet or FB for that matter, we would watch mainstream media like TV, read newspapers, listen to the radio and form our opinions based on what we heard. We didn't really go digging for much information past what we got through the media. Having the internet has changed our life. Now all it takes is for some article to say "A recent study shows..." to get our attention. We Google our symptoms, diagnose ourselves before seeing a Dr., and have the opportunity to learn just about anything. While there are good and bad sides to everything I firmly believe, ignorance is NOT bliss. I like having the ability of researching products, learning about chemicals, making informed decisions when it comes to the longevity of our family's health. It was only until I "liked" some pages on FB such as The Mind Unleashed and The Anti Media, that I started looking at things a little differently. Take this for example:

 All I've been seeing lately are posts about Fluoride. You might ask: What is Sodium Fluoride? 
-Sodium fluoride is an inorganic chemical compound with the formula NaF. A colorless solid, it is a source of the fluoride ion in diverse applications. Sodium fluoride is less expensive and less hygroscopic than the related salt potassium fluoride.


What Is Sodium Fluoride Used for?
-Sodium Chloride is used in making of toothpaste and in water treatment. It is also used in manufacture of pesticides and as a preservative. It has a molecular formula of NaF and it is commonly found in the form of white crystals.


Fluoride is supposedly used to protect our teeth from the acidity in foods and prevent cavities. Well, here's an idea! Let's eat a balanced diet with alkaline foods! Studies actually prove that we don't have any less cavities than places where Fluoride isn't used.... Go figure...who's idea was it to put it in all toothpastes, the water system, and even store bought baby water to mix formula with? Most likely the government, no? In the game of Monopoly I always loved buying the water and electric companies. If you control the basic necessities such as water, electricity, and the food system, you retain absolute power over the people dependent on it. It's really that simple. Somehow, I've seen videos and pictures of Fema camps with mass body boxes that look like coffins stocked up and I wonder why, but that's a discussion for another day.


My husband can't get past being bred to love Colgate/Crest 3D, and I know it's not a matter of believing it's bad, its a matter of breaking out of what we were programmed to depend on and love based on consumer economy. Endless commercials on pearly white teeth yet we still  have yellowish teeth despite years of brushing with Crest or Colgate, or Aquafresh, or Sensodyne or whatever the hell you were convinced to spend your last dollar on anyway. I went to several stores recently and found that there really is no non-fluoride alternative in the store. I know what's your next question; so Michelle, since you have it all figured out what are you using?

I'm actually using Uncle Harry's Natural Tooth Powder and Uncle Harry's Natural Spearmint Toothpaste on alternate days. It's a little pricey but worth it. Sometimes you can catch a sale. A friend told me about how it healed up a relative's entire mouth, and I feel it's actually credible after using it.

Maybe you can't deal with all the changes you have to make to be healthy in this world. In this life...because it's getting a little ridiculous, like what the fuck isn't tainted anymore right? I know, I get it, but like I said before this is a journey. What gives me the motivation to keep going is the idea that making these small changes in our life is like saying "Fuck you!" to the system profiting from people suffering. I vote with my $ now. I can't change the world without being the change I wish to see the world, so I will try to follow this manifesto.



Don't believe what I have written here. Read the report for yourself and share with everyone you know.
