Alright, this will be my last post on fluoride. I promise. Before I cease and desist on this topic, however, here are 3 more things to consider:
1. I mentioned yesterday that you should avoid instant teas, but I didn’t provide any links where you can read more about this problem. Go here for an article that summarizes a study published in the American Journal of Medicine. If you’d like to read the study itself and you’re willing to pay a few dollars to access it, go here.
2. Avoid pharmaceuticals containing fluoride. You might be surprised how many do. Everything from commonly prescribed antidepressants like Prozac and Paxil to cholesterol-lowering drugs like Lipitor and antibiotics like Cipro boast some fluoride component. Check out this great database to find out if any prescriptions you currently take could be problems.
3. Go to this page on the Fluoride Action Network’s website to read their list of fluoride exposure sources. It’s a must-read!
