5 Good Reasons You Should Avoid Fluoridated Water – Karma Yoga Daily
Drinking fluoridated water may seem like a good idea, but it’s actually anything but. Not only can consuming fluoride harm the brain, it also has severe impacts on hormonal health. Here are 5 reasons to avoid it like the plague.
1. Fluoridated Water Can Damage the Thyroid
A recent study reported water fluoridation in England is linked to a 30 percent increase in the rate of underactive thyroid; still, other reports suggest 2 to 5 mg of fluoride over months can actually reduce thyroid function.   Close to 70 percent of the U.S. water supply is fluoridated. But should we really be putting an endocrine disruptor like fluoride into the water we drink?
2. Fluoridated Water is Linked to ADHD
With a more than 50 percent increase in the past 10 years, ADHD is becoming a big problem in the U.S.  So what’s causing this increase? Well, if you live in a state with fluoridated water, that could even be a factor. For the first time, scientists have “found that states with a higher portion of artificially fluoridated water had a higher prevalence of ADHD,” and it seems like more than just a fluke: the trend even “held up across six different years examined.”
