I saw a TV commericial that advertised "No Fluoride" in a product. I don't get TV so I only saw it once and don't remember the product. It may have been a product for young children, though.

Then, later, I came across this article at

http://www.westonaprice.org/Fluoride-Worse-than-We-Thought.html

Has fluoride been tested by people who do not have a financial stake in it?

``Many Americans are exposed to fluoride in the ranges associated with thyroid effects, especially for people with iodine deficiency,''

says Kathleen Thiessen, PhD, co-author of the government-sponsored NRC report.

``The recent decline in iodine intake in the U.S could contribute to increased toxicity of fluoride for some individuals,'' says Thiessen

I found these references at the bottom of the article:

http://www.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=11571

``Thyroid Function: Fluoride exposure in humans is associated with elevated TSH concentrations, increased goiter prevalence, and altered T4 and T3 concentrations.'' (Page 262)

``(The thyroid effects are associated with average fluoride intakes that) will be reached by persons with average exposures at fluoride concentrations of 1-4 mg/L in drinking water, especially the children.'' (Page 260)

YIKES: It is in Tea ! Aluminum, too. One more thing to communicate about with our sources. Now I have to trace how my brand of Green Tea is grown and processed.

Excerpt from grandmother's link above ( http://www.westonaprice.org/Fluoride-Worse-than-We-Thought.html ):

Tea

In their drive to fluoridate the public water supplies, dental health officials continue to pretend that no other sources of fluoride exist. This notion becomes absurd when one looks at the fluoride content in tea.

Tea is very high in fluoride because tea leaves accumulate more fluoride (from pollution of soil and air) than any other edible plant.49,50,51 It is well established that fluoride in tea gets absorbed by the body in a manner similar to the fluoride in drinking water.49,52

Fluoride content in tea has risen dramatically over the last 20 years due to industry contamination.

Recent analyses have revealed a fluoride content of 17.25 mg per teabag or cup in black tea, and a whopping 22 mg of soluble fluoride ions per teabag or cup in green tea. Aluminum content was also high--over 8 mg. Normal steeping time is five minutes.

The longer a tea bag steeped, the more fluoride and aluminum were released. After ten minutes, the measurable amounts of fluoride and aluminum almost doubled.53 . . . .

. . . The high content of both aluminum and fluoride in tea is cause for great concern as aluminum greatly potentiates fluoride's effects on G protein activation,72 the on/off switches involved in cell communication and of absolute necessity in thyroid hormone function and regulation. . . . .

I am allergic to the flouride in toothpaste and of course, the one the dentist puts on your teeth. It's a rare allergy, according to my dentist.

Had a BAD experience with it when I was about 15.

So I REALLY am against putting it in the water!!!

All Lyme patients need to read this article! Check out the symptoms of flouride "poisoning."

I was very upset to learn that when I had some mercury/silver amalgams removed that the dentist put a "fluoride shield" on my teeth before replacing the filling.

She thought she was doing something good but I was extremely upset. She didn't even ask me first...

Just a word of caution if you plan to get some silver fillings replaced.

Never knew that about the tea! I don't know if "organic" would be better. It seems to be absorbed from the water they use to water the plants.

You may have to research the location where the tea is grown to see if that's an issue. I'm not sure if that would make the tea toxic. Sometimes, plants have ways to balance the toxins with beneficial chemicals.
