How to Rid Fluoride from Water

By June 21, 2024No Comments

Why is fluoride in water?

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral found in rocks and soil. In the early 1900s, scientists linked fluoride to preventing tooth decay. It was discovered that public water systems with naturally occurring fluoride had lower rates of cavities.

Grand Rapids, Michigan, was the first community in the United States to add it to its water supply. Lower rates of schoolchildren with cavities. The news spread and other towns and cities followed suit. The CDC even named adding fluoride to public water supplies one of the ten greatest health achievements of the 20th century.

However, in 2015, it was found that while community water fluoridation was effective for reducing tooth decay among children, “no studies aimed to determine the effectiveness of water fluoridation for preventing caries [cavities] in adults met the review’s inclusion criteria.”

Is fluoride bad for you?

High levels of fluoride can be dangerous. Excessive amounts can cause dental fluorosis, which causes tooth enamel to have white spots, staining, and pitting.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, drinking fluoridated water is safe when it is naturally present or added in the correct amounts.

Is my water fluoridated?

You can research by state, county, and water system using the CDC’s My Water’s Fluoride. You can also contact your local water supplier to inquire about water quality.

The ITS eXact Micro 7+ Standard Photometer Kit will allow you to test for 26 parameters. To test for fluoride in drinking water, you’ll want to add the Fluoride Test Strips for eXact Micro 7+ Photometer to your cart.
