I've posted about this before but a recent article in health news warrants a re-post.
If you want healthy teeth, don't listen to your dentist!
Sounds contradictory? Most dentists still believe that regular fluoridation via toothpaste, mouthwash, or other topical aid, along with fluoridated water prevents cavities. Unfortunately "most dentists" are wrong!
Fluoridation, especially that found in drinking water, is actually a waste product of the phosphate fertilizer industry called hydrofluorosilicic acid, and has been described as a neurotoxin at its worst, accumulating in sensitive organ tissue, severely affecting brain function.
This is a very interesting, disturbing, and eye-opening article that I urge you to read...
"Good oral health and strong, healthy teeth are NOT the result of
drinking fluoridated water and brushing your teeth with fluoridated
toothpaste. Rather it's virtually all about your diet.
Dr. Weston A. Price, who was one of the major nutritional pioneers of all time,
completed some of the most extensive research on this topic back in the
1900s, and it is still very much relevant today. What he found, and
documented in his classic book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration,
is that native tribes who were eating their traditional diet had nearly
perfect teeth, and were almost 100 percent free of tooth decay -- and
they did not have toothbrushes, floss, toothpaste, or root canals and
But when these tribal populations were introduced to sugar and white
flour, guess what happened … their health, and their perfect teeth,
rapidly deteriorated, just like the kids in El Salvador. By avoiding sugars and processed foods, you prevent the proliferation of the bacteria that cause decay in the first place." When treatment is poison Mercola.com July 14th 2012
