The EPA recently released a proposal to “phase out fluoride pesticide” which is an “insecticide and fumigant used on stored grain, such as wheat and oats; driedfruit; coffee and cocoa beans; and other foods”.
If EPA’s plan becomes final, many food uses of this fluoride-based pesticide would stop within 90 days.
Although this is a major breakthrough, the EPA has not yet announced any plans for the removal of this dangerous poison from our water supply.
If you are reading this article and still think that fluoride is somehow good for you, perhaps you should take a look at a recent study that shows it can damage the brain.
“The prolonged ingestion of fluoride may cause significant damage to health and particularly to the nervous system,” concludes a review of studies by researchers Valdez-Jimenez, et al. published in Neurologia (June 2011), reports New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF).
The research team reports, “It is important to be aware of this serious problem and avoid the use of toothpaste and items that contain fluoride, particularly in children as they are more susceptible to the toxic effects of fluoride.”
