Danger Of Fluoride in Drinking Water.

'Chocolate' Toothpaste To Fight Tooth Decay?   

Our regular readers know that fluoride is one of our pet hates here at Agora Health. The fact is, that fluoride used in our drinking water is a by-product of the fertilizer industry. Decades ago, someone got the bright idea to add unusable fluoride to our water supplies. They hyped it as healthy, and a trusting public bought it.

Apart from our drinking water, this toxic by-product is also in our toothpaste and even in some bottled waters... all as a result of the mainstream's misconception that it protects our teeth, when in fact it can cause dental fluorosis.

Tasty, safer and much more effective

Dental fluorosis is a discolouration of teeth, caused by exposure to excess fluoride. In fact, the US Centres for Disease Control (CDC) actually admits that about 40 per cent of US children have some level of dental fluorosis.

But that's not the worst of it. Recently, Harvard researchers examined more than two dozen trials that studied cognitive function in children and fluoride exposure. Results show that children who live in high fluoride areas have significantly lower IQ scores than children in low fluoride areas. Animal studies have also already suggested that fluoride might be neurotoxic.

Simply put, this stuff is anything but good for your teeth and your health.

Avoiding fluoride is near impossible (it is in our drinking water after all), but this doesn't mean you have to settle for fluoride-laden toothpastes. Luckily, fluoride-free toothpastes are widely available at alternative health food stores and even in some supermarkets.

In recent years, several studies have also shown some unexpected candidates to help prevent tooth decay and improve your overall oral health.

A few years ago, I told you about Irish researchers who found that enzyme-enriched coconut oil showed an ability to inhibit the growth of most strains of bacteria, especially the bacteria that cause tooth decay — Streptococcus. The researchers suggested that coconut oil could be used in dental care products in the future. They also found that coconut oil attacks the yeast which causes thrush.

In a separate study, UK researchers studied Bacillus licheniformis — a microbe enzyme found on the surface of seaweed. It was found to protect the areas between teeth where plaque can gather despite brushing. The lead researcher, Dr Nick Jakubovics, explained that traditional toothpastes work by scrubbing off bacteria containing plaque — but that's not always effective — which is why people who religiously clean their teeth can still develop cavities.

Instead of removing the plaque entirely, Dr Jakubovics believes the seaweed enzyme could strip away the harmful bacteria, like Streptococcusmutans, that cause tooth decay. He added: "Ultimately we hope to harness this power into a paste, mouthwash or denture-cleaning solution."

The latest study tested toothpaste with a cocoa-based extract. The results showed that the cocoa-based extract was more effective than fluoride in fighting cavities.

The researchers found that the 'chocolate' toothpaste was more effective than fluoride toothpaste in remineralizing dentin. Dentin is the bone-like material that your tooth enamel protects.

These alternatives all seem like a win-win. You protect your teeth AND you do it without fluoride, which is just unnecessary and potentially dangerous junk. If you want to learn more about ways to protect your teeth and improve your oral health, follow this link:

I think it's effective. We can also use some alternatives like coconut oil teeth whitening for mouth cleansing as well.
