Reduce Exposure to Fluoride

How to Reduce Exposure to Fluoride

When fluoride was first added to water in the 1940s in an experiment to prevent tooth decay, not a single dental product contained fluoride: no fluoride toothpastes, no fluoride mouth rinses, no fluoride varnishes, and no fluoride gels. In the past 60 years, as one fluoride product after another entered the market, exposure to fluoride increased considerably, particularly among children.

Exposure from other sources has increased as well, such as: infant formula, processed foods, soups, and beer made with fluoridated water, food grown with fluoride-containing pesticides and fumigants (buy organic!), bottled teas, raisins, fruit juices, wine, mechanically deboned chicken, and pharmaceuticals that leave a fluoride metabolite, to name a few. Taken together, the glut of fluoride sources in the modern diet has created a toxic cocktail, one that has caused a dramatic increase in dental fluorosis (a tooth defect caused by excess fluoride intake) over the past 60 years. The problem with fluoride, therefore, is not that we are receiving too little, but that we are receiving too much. 

Here are several FAN guides to help you reduce your exposure to fluoride. Please share them with friends and family: 

Fluoride Content in:

Of course, the very best way to avoid fluoride is to work with your friends and neighbors to get it out of your water - or keep it out of the water.  That requires organization and education.  We need education not fluoridation!

The Fluoride Action Network is committed to educating citizen around the world about the risks associated with fluoride in an effort to ultimately reduce exposure to the toxicant. With your help we can continue to develop more free educational materials and guidebooks in this pursuit. If you find these resources helpful and would like to see more developed, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution--why not give it to FAN instead of Uncle Same!

Breaking Bad. A Commentary

I was curious about the television show Breaking Bad.  Friends seem to like it so I watched the first four episodes tonight on Netflix.  

The show Breaking Bad may be great story telling, even classical but I have to say here that it is a direct reflection of a culture that is so sick that I find it hard to believe people actually enjoy this kind of masochistic sadistic horror.  Cancer is a time for forgiveness a time to let the body heal itself.  It is a time of self reflection and it is a warning to evaluate the way you think feel and heal.  The insanity of this might find its way into the life of a few people on the planet but it is not classical theater in my humble opinion and it is not something I would allow my children to watch let along my dog if I had them.

I watched the first four episodes.  I stopped immediately.  I wanted to take a shower, wash out my soul with detergent.  The death wish of this character and the relentless focus on chemotherapy radiation and surgery is disgusting and don't get me started on the death culture doctors in this flick.  Yes the show is about a man who wants things to turn out well especially for his family but the self destructive plot subplot theme are so saturated with negativity that Aristotle would spin in hs grave.  It is ridiculous and laughable to me.  I would not waste a second of my time putting my beautiful human spirit though watching this insane garbage.  Even though it is a good shock to the bored and lazy psyche, anyone who watches such garbage needs to lay under the stars and contemplate their life.  Even If you are into such drama on a wider scale it is psychologically damaging for our beleaguered culture and contains few if any redeeming qualities found in progressive societies or in good theater.  It is so base and so fictitious and so not like reality that I have to say that people who watch this stuff already have bought into a culture that is so very much not their friend.  They are so bored and lost that they let it surrounded them as they capitulate to it allowing it to dine upon a good chunk of their soul.  They can not fight their way out of it so they support it.  And this makes me sad for my friends and fellow Americans.  They are so lost so separated and have sunk so low they I can hardly believe it.

Go do something for somebody who would never have thought you could be so kind.  Don't waste your time on television.  It is not your friend.  And as for my friends who watch this.  I know your are good people but this show is beneath your dignity.  And that is, as they say, all I have to say about that.

A birthday rant. Animals and Truth

Aww shucks. Thanksgiving and my birthday are over and now it's back to the good old vegan routine of juicing and creating yummy dishes out of the billions of options cooked and raw cuisine can be. Eating .012% or less of the meat I used to consume makes me feel good when I greet an animal because I know none of them can speak up for their other earthlings that we magically convert into food by renaming them from the word "pet" to "livestock." Quite honestly I never cared about meat or where it came from until I got very sick and had to stop eating it and dairy too. I did not care afterwords either.

The Brass Teapot

I just watched the movie The Brass Teapot and I couldn't decide whether or not I have been manipulated by Hollywood or whether it had actual redeeming value. I guess this sometimes is what we are left with decide the subjective value of a story for ourselves. It's funny how that works…

It was an incredible movie filled with lessons that are very appropriate to the moment as I stand at the precipice of opportunity. I believe that the promises of 2012 are coming into focus with the simple synchronicity's we experience each day. They are gaining momentum, grabbing us saving us defending us teaching us each and every day of this incredible time in history. The quality of life is increasing, but not as we expect. The good souls around me are still experiencing difficulties and unusual situations even defeat but they are growing and the people around me that are greedy insincere and selfish they appear to be standing still and moving away into history like looking in the rearview mirror as we speed away.

It's an incredible time in history and if I'm not completely delusionary is a wonderful time to be alive.

More on Northern Baja Gerson Center - history and standing

We recently visited a new Gerson clinic in Rosarito Mexico.  We had heard about this doctor and decided to drive down to meet Dr. Patrick Vickers at his new state of the art luxury facility in Northern Baja Mexico about a half hour from San Diego.  Upon arrival we were met by a security guard who met us at his glass enclosed booth next to the electric gate through which we entered the facility.

What's apps/software/tools can't you live without?P

Scrivener, the word processor I've used for the last two books. Unlike Word, it doesn't crash every five minutes, and I can look at multiple docs at once in the same window. [It's] minimalist and great. [I use] Evernote for all research, saving webpages for offline reading, de-cluttering paper from the house, remembering wine labels, etc. The AeroPress, designed by the Stanford engineer behind the Aerobie, is the easiest way to get the perfect cup of coffee. Aim for 12g of coffee to 200g of water at 175-180 degrees F. Clean up literally takes two seconds. Uber has saved my ass more times than I can count. TaskRabbit I use to outsource the minutiae of life and save me approximately 10 hours a week.P

What did you learn from your neighbors when you were a kid?


I grew up living across the street from this guy. He and his beautiful German wife Zita were quiet unpretentious people and they had a couple nice kids who each summer bought up all the local watermelons and threw a big outdoor watermelon party. So much for that racist stereotype. Few things stood out about this family except that they knew good art, had remarkably good taste and always appeared to be in good health. As a kid you can learn a lot from your neighbors especially when your parents don't take particular interest in you. As was the case at my home.
