Is Your Floridated Water Making You Fat?

And the battle against fluoride in the water continues as we learn more about what this chemical can do. As early as 1961 studies found that fluoride was a lethal substance and that although it is found naturally in nature, the concentrations in a water supply that are added with the intention to support strong bones and teeth are actually lethal. They build up in the system and if you drink a lot of water, or use water to make drinks like coffee, tea,or soft drinks, you probably get even more than most people.

Keep in mind that we are not talking about the naturally occurring fluoride. Calcium fluoride, the naturally occurring form of fluoride, is not toxic, but this form of fluoride is not used to fluoridate water, and is not used in toothpaste.

According to an article by Ron Harder, Nutritional Health Consultant, Iridologist, and Author of "How to DEFEAT CANCER NATURALLY without Chemo, Radiation, or Surgery, "The salts used to fluoridate your water supply, sodium fluoride and fluorosalicic acid, are industrial by-products that are so notoriously toxic that they are used in rat poison and insecticides. This is the fluoride used in your water supply"

This is the toxic fluoride I am referring to in this article.

New studies are finding that people are suffering weight gain triggered by the thyroid gland.

The thyroid gland uses fluoride to trigger weight gain by producing an imposter hormone. You could also feel fatigued, depressed or even have a loss of hair. This is because the artificially introduced fluoride blocks the iodine receptors in the thyroid gland.

Iodine is required by the thyroid gland to produce thyroxine, the metabolism boosting hormone. The imposter hormone that is produced by a blocked thyroid is measured as thyroxine in blood tests. This makes detection nearly impossible.

Al this leads to an increase in weight, especially if you are on one of those diets requiring you to drink lots of water and you opt for tap water, even if it is filtered by one of those household filters like Brita or Pur. They don't remove fluoride.

If you want to remove fluoride from your drinking water you have a couple of options. You can get a reverse osmosis or ceramic purification filter. Doulton Undercounter Water Filter can be acquired for around $135 as an example.

You could avoid the problem by drinking only bottled fluoride free water. Arrowhead and Crystal Geyser are a couple of companies that provide water that is free of fluoride.

Next you need to restore your thyroid to normal. Plan to eat more iodine-rich foods like eggs, potatoes, shrimp, cod, or seaweed. Consuming a serving of these each day can help restore normal iodine levels to give your thyroid the building blocks it needs to jump-start your metabolism.

As always, talk to your medical team to decide if you are suffering from an under or over active thyroid gland. After my sister was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer, we all suddenly became aware of how important this little gland really is. I hope you will take a moment to think about how important it is to your overall health.

Not sure if your area uses fluoride in the water supply? Go to to find out if you live in one of the sixty percent of American households that have fluoride added to their water.
