Flouride In Toothpaste


Is it true that fluoride in the toothpaste should be avoided for all types of blood type?


We live in an increasingly 'fluoridated' world. The fluoride in water and toothpaste is potentially harmful; the hydrogen fluoride in contaminated air far more so. Each year, tens of thousands of tons of hydrogen fluoride create an environmental hazard which can be 1,000 times more harmful than sulphur dioxide, a key, but rarely mentioned component of 'acid rain'.

Fluoride in toothpaste can be absorbed through the tissues of the mouth, as well as swallowed accidentally. Many prescription drugs also contain fluoride. None of these items are labeled to indicate the quantity of fluoride added to the daily dietary total. In essence, flouride can become a 'straw that breaks the camel's back.'

In the early days of water flouridation, the total intake for most adults was 0.02 mg/kg/day: About one to one and a half milligrams of fluoride daily. Today, the figure is 0.095 mg/kg/day, and from food and drinking water alone, more than 6 milligrams daily.

Thus, the amount of flouride we are getting simply through the environment, has long ago passed the amount necessary to protect bones and teeth.

The Ask Dr. D'Adamo internet advice column ran from 1996 to 2009, at which time Dr. D'Adamo's teaching and programming responsibilities no longer allowed him to devote time and resources to directly answering visitor questions. However we've recently reorganized this treasure-trove of material and made it again available to his readership. He occasionally posts new entries. These are marked with a NEW tag.
