Comment Of The Day March 14, 2010
Today’s How To Kick Your Thyroid’s Ass:, Nine Sources of Fluoride Exposure You Might Not Recognize, was absolutely mindboggling. As Liz said, “This week, we have a guest post from a special lady with a special website: Melissa from The Cellulite Investigation…
In list format, Melissa unearthed 9-sources of fluoride exposure that many of us might not be aware of. When you read the column; you’ll learn that processed cereals, non-organic wine and grapes, to name a few, all have fluoride. Melissa also shares the impetus for her quest to find fluoride. It’s a fantastic read.
MelissaÃ¢â‚¬”thanks for guest posting on Dear Thyroid today.
Our comment of the day is from Sandi, a dental hygienist. Sandi shared a bit about herself, her concerns and provided a great resource for us. Thank you, Sandi!
As a dental hygienist that is NOT a gung-ho fluoride advocate, I loved your list. It shows how easily it could be for levels of fluoride to get out of hand in the body. Children are exposed is too many ways when you look at your list.
I will be looking for more ways to eliminate the fluoride in my world. Carifree.com makes fluoride free toothpaste that I am going to invest in.
I have to use hydrated aluminum in a mist spray when polishing my patients’ teeth. The particle size is so small that I am ingesting it when I do that part of my treatment (even though I wear a mask), 8 times a day. There has to be a fluoride side effect from that too. That could have contributed to my 50 lb weight increase since starting this job 2.5 years ago.
I do need a water filter. Any inexpensive suggestions? I drink a LOT of water daily and I need to be aware of the fluoride I am getting from that too.
What a great eye opener. Thanks!
To everyone who participated in today’s conversation, thank you! Everyone’s thoughts and points were fabulous; some were quite funny, too. If you missed the column, we encourage you to read it.
Keep speaking up and out. The more we share, the more we learn from each other. Today was another day to learn about fluoride from individuals with and without chronic conditions.
