Should I Avoid Fluoride?

By March 30, 2018Abby's Answers


We have been drinking fluoridated artesian water for years, ever since it was supposed to help my children with tooth decay. I just recently read of the dangers of fluoride. It sounds like we should stop. Is that true? Thanks.


Dear Myrna,
I can’t advise you specifically relative to your well water. I can share with you that I advise my clients to avoid fluoride, such as that in toothpaste. Many of my clients will use a reverse filtration system to help lessen fluoride levels for cooking and drinking. My family and my clients actively avoid fluoride.
