This Food Has 180 Times the Fluoride of Drinking Water

But, according to Green, you also need to make sure you have certain nutrients in your system. These three will help bind the free fluoride ions, allowing it to be excreted from your body more effectively:

  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Vitamin C

Join the Fight to Get Fluoride Out of Drinking Water

In summary, it would seem like most rational people would conclude you should avoid using fluoride for its “preventive” benefits. You can easily choose not to take fluoride supplements or buy fluoride-free toothpaste and mouthwash. You can also dramatically reduce your fluoride exposure by opting for organic foods, on which fluoride-based pesticides are not permitted to be used. However, you’re still going to be stuck with whatever your community puts in the water, and as discussed, it’s very difficult to filter out of your water once it’s added. Many do not have the resources or the knowledge to do so.

It’s really time to stop the archaic practice of water fluoridation.

Earlier this year I joined forces with Dr. Paul Connett to help put an END to water fluoridation in the U.S and Canada. The Fluoride Action Network has a game plan to do just that. Our fluoride initiative will primarily focus on Canada, since 60 percent of Canada is already non-fluoridated. If we can get Calgary and the rest of Canada to stop fluoridating their water, we believe the U.S. will be forced to follow. I urge you to join the anti-fluoride movement in Canada and the United States by contacting the representative for your area below.


Contact Information for Canadian Communities:

  • If you live in Ontario, Canada, please join the ongoing effort by contacting Diane Sprules at
  • The point-of-contact for Toronto, Canada is Aliss Terpstra. You may email her at
  • The point-of-contact for the Peel region in Ontario, Canada is Rob Brewer. You may email him at Also see Fluoride Free Peel’s Facebook page.


Contact Information for American Communities:

We’re also going to address three US communities: New York City, Austin, and San Diego:

  • New York City, NY: The anti-fluoridation movement has a great champion in New York City councilor Peter Vallone, Jr., who introduced legislation on January 18 “prohibiting the addition of fluoride to the water supply.”

A victory there could signal the beginning of the end of fluoridation in the U.S. If you live in the New York area, I beg you to participate in this effort as your contribution could have a MAJOR difference. Remember that one person can make a difference.

The point person for this area is Carol Kopf, at the New York Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation (NYSCOF). Email her at Please contact her if you’re interested in helping with this effort.

Though I think I read this the first time round, knowing that I'm sensitive to fluoride, this was good to read again.

One of the reasons you really do want to try and purchase organically anything that has a high water content, like fruits, lettuces, tomatoes, peppers, etc. Because even if you wash off everything from the outside, the plant still takes up whatever is in the soil and uses it in its tissues. And yes, Terri M., one of the reasons wine can give you a headache is the sulfites and other chemicals that still reside in it.

Thanks for the heads up, doc :)

If grapes are so full of flouride, I guess that means that wine is too????
