    The truth about fluoride is discussed a lot these days. Fluoride is another chemical that is found in our tap water to prevent tooth decay. According to the EPA, exposure to an excessive amount of fluoride over a person’s life may lead to an increased likelihood of bone fractures in adults, and may result in effects on bone leading to pain and tenderness. Most water supplies contain some naturally occurring fluoride. Fluoride also enters drinking water in discharge from fertilizer or aluminum factories. I would recommend that people go to the EPA website and read more about the types of chemicals that exists in our ground water, and how they actually impact our overall health. Just because the water appears clear, does not mean it’s healthy for us to drink.
