Fluoride in Food

by Sarah on October 23, 2009

If you are like most people who’ve experienced a natural health awakening over the past few years, (or maybe you’re still in yours – after all, education is a lifelong process!), you are aware of the dangers of fluoride, and you have  taken steps to remove it from your water supply.

To recap, sodium fluoride (not calcium fluoride, which is naturally occurring and remarkably safe) is an industrial toxic waste product that is regularly (and legally) dumped into U.S. public water supply. In other words, a chemical that must be handled with gloves and extreme caution in the lab is freely ingested by millions of people every day.  This realization is quite alarming when you consider that sodium fluoride contributes to “fluoridosis” (a grisly degeneration of the bones), several cancers, and the typical zombie-like, apathetic mindstate of the general population.

So you know you don’t want fluoride in your water. You avoid bottled water (basically packaged & sold tap water), you certainly never drink from the tap, and you’ve installed a home water-filtration system to ensure fluoride is out of sight, out of mind. But is it?

Consider this: if you are eating virtually any processed food or beverage, you are still ingesting fluoride (among a cocktail of other dangerous chemicals, including high fructose corn syrup, food colorings, “natural flavoring”, and more). Water is used to create a variety of processed products – and you can be sure that the company isn’t as strict about its water purity as you are.  From the link above, here are common foods that contain fluoride, and how much:

  • Minute Maid OJ, 0.98 – 1.20mg/l
  • Gerber’s Graduate Berry Juice, 3.0mg/l
  • Classic Coca Cola, 0.82-0.98mg/l
  • Diet Coke, 1.12mg/l
  • Snapple, 0.29mg/l
  • Lipton Ice Tea, 0.56 mg/l
  • Kellogg’s Fruit Loops, 2.1mg/kg

Even fruits and vegetables can have fluoride content, if they are watered with water that contains fluoride. Of course, how do you know? An apple at the big box grocery store is thousands of miles from whence it came. This is another situation in which asking the manager won’t help, either.

Once again, the safe solution is to intimately know the source of your food, and don’t eat it if you don’t trust it. Buy from a farmer’s market, where you can ask questions directly to the grower. (That’s what I love about the dairy farm – they use well water, so there’s no fluoride on the property, and more importantly, my milk and eggs :) )

Invest in a quality portable water container and don’t leave the house without it. Extreme, maybe, but you can take it in steps. Just remember – there IS a war for your mind, body and soul, and you gain significant advantage by rightly taking control over what you put into your body. (The same way you can and should control your thoughts to improve your mental state naturally, not with drugs).

The more you can choose whole, fresh foods, and avoid choosing factory foods, the more confidence you can feel that fluoride and other deleterious chemicals are out of your life, for good.

Thanks for sharing this information! It’s scary to have such a dangerous product in our water and many people consider it perfectly safe. Thanks for also shedding light on some of the other places it can be found- it seems you can never be too careful these days.

Yeah, I would love to get to the point where I am never buying ready-to-eat food again (that means vending machines, fast food, most restaurants in general, gas station snacks, etc) … and work only with all raw materials. Time consuming yes, but it’s really the only way you can have control over what’s in your food. I think having an indoor garden, to sustain your fresh produce intake over the winter, is an idea worth exploring… :)

Another way to control your fluoride intake is through political activism. If everyone contacted their legislators and told them to reject fluoridation, it would stop tomorrow. People spend too much time and money trying to avoid the fluoride put into the water when they can help themselves much more easily by stopping water companies from adding it in the first place. If every community did this, we wouldn’t have to worry so much about the fluoride content of foods

Many communities have stopped or rejected fluoridation – often started by one person and a petition.

Those of us that do watch our levels of Injested poisons are only looked at as the dummies in the crowd. However, 90% of the population can’t answer 4 in 12 questions regarding current events or geography or civics questions correctly. The US Government has done this willfully and with the intent to dumb the population. I expect Morons to respond in the negitive. So have at it!

I’m just happy to have been drinking from a well all of my life even though I think some fluoride is good for our teeth :)

Hi Sarah,
Thank you for the awesome article. I have a question. I was wondering the items listed on the f-for food link, are these items which contain sodium fluoride? Im aware not all fluorides are bad for you, yet sodium fluoride is fairly harmful. Thank you so much. Hope to hear back from you soon.
Blessings,
Sarah :0)

Hello Sarah, and all, thank you for visiting and commenting on this issue. It is so encouraging to see so many of us awakening and becoming proactive about our choices and how they shape the world we live in.

Sarah, regarding your question specifically: Typically the sources of non-harmful fluorides, such as calcium fluoride, are from organic (animal or vegetable) sources, whereas the fluoride foods listed here are processed, mass-marketed foods and beverages, which really aren’t so much food as they are lab-created chemicals disguised to resemble food, with a covert mission to destroy the body, mind and spirit once inside. Look at the water the manufacturer uses to make the product. Do they filter it? You could contact them to find out, let them know that you know and care about the issue.

For me, I feel most secure in growing and preparing the food myself (or in community with like-minded people), knowing in full confidence that the food was grown and tended with love, not treated with chemicals or shipped thousands of miles or otherwise handled by people with negative energy. This is a vital part of the ascension process; our bodies will reject the low-vibe “food” and it’s important that we have vital, real food to offer our bodies instead. So that’s another way you can test your food for sodium fluoride or any other harmful chemical: see how you feel after eating it, or not eating it. Your body is a universe of wisdom, so take care of it and let it take care of you.

Regarding Chrissy’s comment about teeth: if you search “dental fluorosis”, and deprogram all the ADA propaganda from your brain, you will find that there is no benefit of fluoride in the body whatsoever. Fluoride actually contributes to decay and mottling of the teeth, is carcinogenic (it causes cancer), it calcifies the pineal gland, it is the main ingredient in rat poison and as Michelle discusses in the follow-up article, it makes us too complacent to care about what is being done to us. It is truly a crime against humanity.

If you really care about dental health, you will work on it from the inside out. Just as with skin care, tooth care is much more about what you put into your body than it is about topical treatments. Eat an organic, raw food diet, and supplement with omega-3 and 6 (hemp oil is a good source if you’re vegan), along with calcium, vitamin D, vitamin K2, and phosphate. Oh, and wash it down with spring water! :)
