For decades fluoride has been added to drinking water by governments and local authorities to help prevent tooth decay.
A report published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health confirms that water fluoridation does more harm than good.
A study of a sample of communities exposed to fluoridated water in the UK shows that they are 30% more likely to develop an under-active thyroid, which could cause depression, fatigue, memory loss or weight gain.
Fluoride was used in the 1950s to treat over-active thyroid.
Natural News reports:
Fluoride is a natural mineral found in soil and water in varying amounts. It is believed to combat tooth decay and cavities by making enamel more resistant to bacteria. However, previous studies have shown that exposure to high levels of fluoride inhibits the production of iodine, which is crucial for a healthy thyroid.
It is for this reason that adding extra fluoride to water for the purpose of medical treatment has become a controversial topic of heated debate. For decades, fluoride has been forced upon us by governments who have spiked our drinking water to improve oral health. However, there is a growing body of evidence suggesting that fluoride-spiked water may do more harm than good.
