Throughout the past few years, pieces of evidence of how fluoride can negatively impact our health have been rapidly increasing. By bringing awareness about this issue, people hope that this can somehow get sodium fluoride removed from the world’s water supply.
Just recently, a big step has been made in one of the world’s most prestigious medical journals, The Lancet. In this journal fluoride has been at last classified as a one hundred percent neurotoxin, thereby putting it in the same category as things like mercury, lead, and arsenic.
The author named Stefan Smyle released this news and actually cited a report that had been published in the Lancet Neurology, Volume 13, Issue 3 to be exact in the March of 2014 edition. The authors stated in this that there were many more neurotoxins remain undiscovered throughout the world and that because of these neurotoxins, many children are now being affected by neurodevelopmental disabilities. The results of the study revealed that aside from water supplies, fluoride can actually also be found in heavily processed brands of tea grown in most likely overly polluted areas.
Most parents, in order to help ensure their families safety, have been avoiding fluoridated toothpaste and are jumping on the natural bandwagon. One of the good natural go-to brands is known as Earthpaste. You can use or make it on your own if you want to get away from fluoridated toothpaste.

In most other countries, fluoride is banned. Yet, throughout North America, fluoride is still added to the water supply.
