I read two things this past week that I thought were important enough to pass on. First, something I failed to write about in my post regarding fluoride was why – if research confirms the dangers of fluoride – why do most American cities still have it in their water? Well, my friend at National Fork also wrote a thorough article on flouride and I thought answered this question beautifully. ”Unfortunately, while there are healthier ways to strengthen teeth, there may not be more profitable ways, at least not from the perspective of the chemical industry. Fluoride chemicals are well-known bi-products of various industrial processes, including the manufacture of synthetic fertilizers. The fertilizer industry is an outgrowth of the WWII chemical industry of the 1940′s, and disposal of fluoride waste chemicals has been a problem for these industries from the beginning. Disposing of them in the drinking water, and convincing the population that the chemicals are “good for you,” may be less expensive than treating them to make them safe. Don’t expect the media to alert people to the dangers of fluoride. Large industry draws large profits from the disposal of fluoride chemicals via the drinking water.“ To read the full post, please go here.
The second item that really caught my attention this week was Cheeseslave’s post on the benefits of magnesium and now that she has been supplementing with adequate amounts of magnesium, she has found that she doesn’t need deodorant. Please read her How I Quit Using Deodorant and What’s Wrong with Deodorant. Further, post on Are You Suffering from Magnesium Deficiency really got me to thinking about minerals in general in which I may be deficient. I know, add it to the list for things to do in 2012!
