The Kind of Water Matters
If you’re drinking filtered water out of your fridge or tap water, it has fluoride. Fluoride is shown to cause cancer, brain development issues and more.
The rule of thumb is to drink half of our body weight in water so imagine how much fluoride you’re consuming. Then add your toothpaste – it’s double trouble.
Some people (e.g., manual laborers, athletes, diabetics, and people with kidney disease) drink substantially more water than others.
Studies Show Fluoride Can Have These Effects
- Arthritic symptoms
- Affects thyroid function
- Damages bone
- May increase hip fractures in the elderly
- People with impaired kidney function are particularly vulnerable to bone damage
- May cause reproductive problems
You should use reverse osmosis water. That is the best kind of water that you can drink.
Keep that in mind next time you fill up your water bottle.
