Harm caused by fluoride in tap watertap watertap water to human body

Over the past five decades, many countries such as the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand have enforced a policy that orders adding a a chemicachemicala chemica called fluoride to tap water to help prevent cavities.

 

However, to keep HealthyhealthyHealthy and avoid cancer, I don’ t recommend you to drink or use tap water, though most Americans only have it for daily life.

 

As early as 1977, the International Association for Fluoride Research (ISFR) released a quarterly reportquarterly reportquarterly report indicating that fluoride belongs to carcinogen and mutagenic substance. It accumulates in human body and replaces beneficial substances such as iodine, causing severe illnesses such as bone cancer, thyroid cancer, liver cancer and breast cancerHospital.

 

In 1990, a report by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) of the National Institute of Graduate SchoolEnvironmental Health Sciences (NIECHS)Graduate School revealed that male rats are more likely to suffer from osteosarcoma, a type of bone tumor, after being fed fluoride for two years.

 

In April, 2010, the magazineTime magazinemagazine listed fluoride as one of the “ Top 10 Common Household Toxins. ” 

 

In Europe, fluoride is rarely added to water supply systemswater supply systemswater supply systems.

 

In the UK, only about 10 people drink water containing fluoride.

 

To add or not to add fluoride to tap water, this is a question. Critics hold that fluoride shouldn’ t be added to tap water for so- called “ preventing cavities ” . In nearly all countries, including the US, applying a substance every citizens believe toxictoxictoxic for medical use is unlawful.
