Fluoride Could Be Causing Your Heartburn

Fluoride Could Be Causing Your Heartburn

By now, most people reading these posts are aware that adding fluoride to drinking water is not such a great idea. Aside from the dubious benefits to teeth, fluoride is a known toxin. According to the Fluoride Action Network, ingestion of as little as 1 per cent of a tube of toothpaste can produce acute fluoride toxicity in a young child.

Every year, U.S. poison control centers receive thousands of reports related to excessive ingestion of fluoride dental products, which include toothpastes, mouth rinses and supplements.

Fluoride Could Be Causing Your HeartburnThe story of the addition of fluoride to municipal drinking water is not pretty, and now it turns out that many symptoms of indigestion and excess stomach acid may be related to fluoride toxicity. Fluoride is turned into hydrofluoric acid by digestive juices and this can have a corrosive effect on the lining of the gastrointestinal tract. In addition, scientists at The All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi have published research in the Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology that fluoride itself can create changes in digestive tract cells. Substances that create structural changes in biological cell systems are clearly problematic and to be avoided.

If you’re one of the unlucky folks living a municipality that is fluoridating their water (according to a 2002 study cited on the US Center for Disease Control website, that includes 67% of the United States population), it may be a good idea to use a fluoride filtration system. The two most commonly used are activated alumina and the SIR-900 which is a synthetic aluminum oxide. Cheap charcoal filters do not filter out fluoride, but reverse osmosis water and distilled water are typically free of the troublesome chemical compound. And, if you have problems with indigestion or unexplained production of excess stomach acid, drinking fluoride-free water may be especially beneficial.
