Bottled Water FILLED with Fluoride

Brands to Avoid

“Fluoride seems to fit in with lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain drain,”Grandjean says. “The effect of each toxicant may seem small, but the combined damage on a population scale can be serious, especially because the brain power of the next generation is crucial to all of us.”

As with other fresh water supplies (e.g., spring water, lake water, river water), bottled waters have low levels of fluoride. Fresh surface water contains an average of just 0.05 ppm. To put this in perspective, artificially fluoridated water (using industrial-grade fluoride chemicals) contains 0.7 to 1.2 ppm fluoride, which is 14 to 24 times more than the average natural level.

Fluoride Health Problems

There is a lot of controversy surrounding the presence of fluoride in public drinking water (fluoridation). For starters, before fluoride was used to fight cavities, it was (and still is) used in insecticides and rat poison.

Fluorosis is a condition that wears down the enamal of the tooth, leaving behind white spots, making the teeth more vulnerable to cavities and decay. Fluorosis is a very real health condition that can affect both children and adults. More and more evidence is mounting against the use of fluoride, even in small amounts. But it doesn’t appear to be a critical issue according to the US Surgeon Generals, as the last 5 Surgeon Generals have supported the fluoridation of drinking water. Incidentally, the claimed health benefits almost always point to oral health. Fortunately, the CDC is calling for new labeling rules requiring manufacturers to list a product’s fluoride content, which we have found to be missing in some cases.

What is too much Fluoride?

Fluoride itself is actually required by our bodies in low doses. When consumed in high amounts, specifically the man-made fluoride that is in public drinking water, can cause problems.

An estimated 5-10g of sodium fluoride can be lethal for some adults. While fluoride provides benefits to your oral health, it can also come with adverse side effects, that vary in severity depending upon the amount of fluoride consumed. Excessive consumption of fluoride can lead to gastrointestinal discomfort. This can occur with doses 15 to 20 times lower than actual lethal doses (0.2-0.3mg/kg). Fluoride in exessive amounts can also cause problems in the formation bone.

For a list of bottled water brands that contain little to no fluoride, see Source: http://www.foodandourhealth.com

List of brands to avoid that are known to be high in fluoride:

  • Alhambra
  • Arrowhead
  • Belmont Springs
  • Crystal Rock
  • Crystal Springs
  • Deer Park
  • Diamond Springs
  • Hindley Spri
  • Ice Mountain
  • Kandiyohi
  • Kentwood Springs
  • Mayer Bros.
  • Mount Olympus
  • Nursery Water
  • Ozarka
  • Poland Spring
  • Pure Flo
  • Puritan Springs
  • Shenandoah
  • Sierra Springs
  • Sparkletts
  • Zephyrhills

The list contains data provided by the International Bottled Water Association that you can use to make sure you’re not feeding fluoride to yourself and your family.

Water Wednesday: 5 Facts About Water

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — admin @ 4:06 PM

Water Wednesday:  5 Facts About Water

Water keeps us hydrated, healthy, and energized but did you know there are other benefits to water? Our friends over at Young & Free Alberta shared an article a few weeks ago that had some good info on H20. Check out these 5 need to know facts about water that will help you with your overall health and wellness!

 

Drinking Water Keeps You Young

Drinking plenty of water is great for your skin. If you don’t drink enough water, you’ll suffer from dry skin. Water helps you and your skin by:

  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • If you don’t drink enough water, your body will try to retain it in order to conserve resources
  • This retention makes your skin puffy and can even lead to bloating

Drinking Water Helps You Lose Weight

There’s a reason why athletes and highly active people drink so much water! When you drink plenty of water, your kidneys don’t need any extra help, so your liver will be able to metabolize stored fat more efficiently. Drinking water flushes toxins from your body and prevents constipation. If you’re not drinking enough water, your liver will be forced to help your kidneys detoxify your body. PLUS:

  • Water suppresses your appetite
  • Drinking plenty of water also prevents fluid retention
  • Water also helps your body burn stored fat

Drinking Water Helps You Build Muscle

Plenty of water running through your body makes your muscles stronger!

  • Water carries oxygen to the cells of your body, including those of your muscles
  • Water enables muscles to work harder and longer before they feel tired

Drinking Water Makes You Smarter

Drinking water can increase your cognitive and nerve function.

  • The brain needs a lot of oxygen in order to function at optimum levels
  • H20 ensures that your brain gets all the oxygen it needs
  • 8-10 cups per day can improve your levels of cognitive performance by as much as 30%
  • Water ensures the body’s electrolyte levels remain high enough to allow your nerves to relay messages to and from the brain to the rest of the body

 

Drinking Water Is Good for Your Joints

One of the lesser known benefits of drinking water is that it helps keep your joints strong, healthy and lubricated.

  • Joints need moisture in order to remain strong and flexible
  • Water helps your joints by ensuring your movements are smooth and pain free

The best part of water? It’s FREE so there should be no excuse not to drink up! Aim to drink about 64 oz. per day. It may sound like a lot but it’s only 8 cups (1 cup = 8 oz.) It’s also the same amount of two Nalegene water bottles per day.

Why I Drink Only Pure, Distilled Water!

Filed under: Bragg Book Excerpts — Tags: — admin @ 5:00 AM

Excerpt from The Miracle of Fasting – Chapter 6

When I refer to fasting in this book, I constantly make the statement, “Eat absolutely no food and drink distilled water exclusively.” Distilled water is pure H 2O – which means it’s a compound of 2 parts hydrogen and 1 part oxygen. If you drink rain water, or the fresh juices of fruits and vegetables, remember that all of this liquid has been distilled by Mother Nature. If you drink rain water or snow water, there are no inorganic minerals in it. It is 100% mineral-free. If you drink fruit and vegetable juices, you are drinking distilled water plus certain nutrients such as fruit sugars, organic minerals and vitamins. But if you drink lake, river, well or spring water, you are drinking un-distilled water, plus the inorganic minerals that the water has picked up. Some of this water is known as hard water, meaning it has high inorganic mineral concentrations that can cause health problems. Now, let me give you a short lesson in chemistry. There are two kinds of chemicals – inorganic and organic. The inorganic chemicals are inert, which means that they cannot be absorbed into the tissues of the body. Our bodies are composed of 16 organic minerals which all come from that which is living or was alive. When we eat an apple or any other fruit or vegetable, that substance is living. Each has a certain survival time after it has been picked before spoiling. We prefer the vegetarian diet, but the same applies to animal foods, fish, milk, cheese and eggs if you eat them.

Hard, Inorganic Minerals Cause Problems!
Organic minerals are very vital in keeping us alive and well. If we were cast away on an uninhabited island where nothing was growing, we would starve to death. Even though the soil beneath our feet contains 16 inorganic minerals, our bodies could not absorb them. Only a living plant has the power to extract inorganic minerals from the earth. No human can extract the nourishment from inorganic minerals.

Many years ago, I was on an expedition to China when one part of the country was suffering from drought and famine. I saw with my own eyes poor, starving people heating earth and eating it for want of food. They died horrible deaths because they could not get one bit of nourishment from the inorganic minerals of the earth. For years I have heard people say that certain waters were rich in all the minerals. What minerals are they talking about? Inorganic or organic? These are inorganic and they are burdening their bodies with these inert minerals, which may cause the development of stones in the kidneys, gallbladder and stone-like acid crystals in the arteries, veins, and other parts of the body. I was reared in Virginia where the drinking water is called hard water. It is heavily saturated with inorganic minerals, especially sodium, iron and calcium. I saw many of my elders die of kidney troubles. Nearly all the people were prematurely old because the inorganic minerals would collect on the inner walls of their arteries and veins, causing many to die from hardening of the arteries, strokes and heart attacks. One of my uncles died at Johns Hopkins hospital when he was only 48. The autopsy doctors stated that his arteries were as hard as clay pipes because they were so stiff and corroded with inorganic minerals. Yet you will hear people say, “Distilled water is dead water. A fish cannot live in it.” Of course a fish cannot live in freshly distilled water for any length of time, because it needs the vegetation that grows in rivers, lakes and seas. Imagine you were shipwrecked while on a passenger ship going to Hawaii and you became a castaway in a lifeboat for days on the open sea. If the only water available was rain water, would you say, “Rain water is dead distilled water, I won’t drink it?” No, you would never say that. Of course you would drink pure rain water and survive until rescued!
