Fluoride is one of the most toxic substances on earth, on par with arsenic and lead. It has no proven biological use inside the human body (teeth included). . This is an informative audio interview that discusses the issue of fluoride in the environment, in water and in toothpastes.

Part 1

Part 2


In these audio interviews, Lynne McTaggart lays out the dangers of fluoride use which have been generally ignored by health professionals and communities at large. "It's a rat poison," McTaggart says of fluoride which is added to the water supply of two thirds of America's cities. It's also in toothpaste, and in many other products one wouldn't suspect, such as canned beverages, baby food, pharmaceuticals, and pesticides, she said.

McTaggart said numerous studies show that fluoride does not prevent tooth decay, and in some cases actually contributes to poor dental health. Additionally, some studies have shown that children in communities that have higher levels of fluoride in their water have up to 10% lower IQs, than in locations with lower levels of the chemical. This kind of "mass medication" doesn't take into account "bio-individuality," and is particularly harsh on children, she indicated.

By banding with other anti-fluoride groups, of which there is a growing number, people can make their voices heard to oppose local fluoridation efforts, McTaggart suggested. On an individual level, she advised using a "reverse osmosis" filtration system on your water faucet, as well as choosing toothpastes that don't contain fluoride.
