If you live in a developed country, you may have fluoride literally everywhere. There is fluoridated water, milk fluoridation, salt fluoridation, and fluoride in your toothpaste. In years past, this was heralded as one of the greatest achievements of the 20th century, because fluoride, a natural mineral that is abundant in nature, is associated with fewer dental cavities.

However, in recent years, fluoride and the practice of adding it to everything has come under fire, and now fluoride is hotly debated.

Personally, I don't pay much attention to it. I'm smart enough not to swallow my toothpaste, and while I use a water filter at home and sometimes drink bottled water while on the road, I never give any thought to it's flouride content. In short, I am not worried about fluoride toxicity in the slightest.

However, I do speak with those who take avoiding fluoride very seriously, being sure to not drink fluoridated water nor use fluoridated toothpaste.

I'm just curious, are you avoiding fluoride, or not giving it much thought like me?

At the moment, it seems that it is going to be pretty difficult to avoid it. I can't even say that I should stop using my toothpaste because it contains a little bit of fluoride. It doesn't work that way at all.

Well if you were concerned about fluoride, there are several fluoride-free toothpastes you could choose...


And of course, there is the good ole traditional baking soda and peroxide method that people use to use for years and years.
