Many medical authorities warn that excess fluoride has been linked to a myriad of health problems including heart ailments, Alzheimer's, bone disorders, and cancer.
But did you know that you can get the mineral from sources besides toothpaste and fluoride-supplemented drinking water?
Many products contain fluoride, including tea, wine, soda, infant formula, and foods with soy.
"Fluoride is a very powerful cardiac poison," warns Russell Blaylock, M.D., renowned neurosurgeon and author of 'The Blaylock Wellness Report.'
And it's even more detrimental when it is combined with aluminum, says Dr. Blaylock. Aluminum is sometimes added as a clarifier to water supplies along with fluoride. "The two combine to create a brain toxin that's powerful in incredibly small concentrations," he tells Newsmax Health.
