How to remove fluoride from Water?


The Fluoride mineral occurs naturally on Earth and therefore we have varying levels of fluoride in the water we drink.  In many cities and towns across the UK, where the natural levels of fluoride are lower, our water is fluoridated to increase this level with the aim of reducing tooth decay.  In order to do this, the types of fluoride added to increase this level are delivered in the form of fluorosilicic acid, sodium fluorosilicate, and sodium fluoride.  There is much controvesy around these chemicals, what they actuallly contain, their toxicity, health & safety concerns, and how this is regulated - with contradicting expert reports on either side of the arguments.

Read on to find out how to remove fluoride from water and the best water filters to remove fluoride.

Is Fluoride bad for you? Why is Fluoride in water?

Over consumption of fluoride is recognised as being detrimental to your health and unsafe. You will most likely be aware that Fluoride is included in the majority of tooth pastes and therefore in some instances it is suggested that our families are over consuming fluoride which can lead to fluorosis & other health concerns. The effect of fluoride is clearly known given all the warnings on toothpastes to "only use a pea sized amount" and stating "do not swallow" and to seek medical advise if swallowed.

A small amount of Fluoride is recognised by dental professionals as helping to prevent tooth decay.  For this reason, it has been added to the water in areas that had poor dental health as a means to improve this.  However, the debate is around what chemicals are actually added to the water to acheive this, how is this regulated, and whether the improvement in tooth health outweighs any potential effects of over consumption that some reports suggest might be extremely detrimental to your health.
