Fluoride and Chloride contaminate tap water… AND your health!
Most of us don’t think twice when we turn on the tap for a drink of water.
However, it’s important to be aware of your water’s purity and cleanliness, because contaminated tap water is easier to come by than you might think.
How is my tap water contaminated?
Different germs and chemicals may contaminate your drinking water for a variety of reasons.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the most common sources of contaminants include:
- Naturally occurring chemicals and minerals from the ground (arsenic, radon, and uranium)
- Local land-use practices (fertilizers, pesticides, livestock operations)
- Nearby manufacturing businesses
- Sewer overflows and septic systems.
Chemically contaminated water is a common source of both acute and chronic illness. Possibly the WORST contaminants are…
Fluoride and Chloride ~ Dangerous in the Long Run
The Most Ingested – and the MOST TOXIC Substances!
Most of us have municipal water, and it’s mediocre at best – full of contaminants like fluoride and chlorine, naming only two. These chemicals are routinely added to your drinking water, supposedly to make it clean and healthy – BUT…
After drinking fluoride and chlorine in tap water over your whole life as most of us have, they may be the source of your ill health.
This may surprise you – I know it surprised me!
Fluoride is an acute toxin with a rating higher than that of lead. ” Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products” (5th Edition, 1984) states “lead is given a toxicity rating of 3 to 4, and Fluoride is rated at 4 (3 = moderately toxic, 4 = very toxic).
On December 7, 1992, the EPA Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for lead was set at 0.015 ppm – MCL for fluoride is currently set for 4.0 ppm – over 250 times the permissible level of lead.
That’s Crazy! And there’s more…
Current total Fluoride intake is now estimated to be between 5 and 7 mg/day in “optimally fluoridated” areas.
Contributing to your Toxic Load and Degenerating Health…
Other Sources of Fluoride
Your fluoride intake is divided between drinking water (in fluoridated areas), and other commercially produced water-containing food and beverages.
If you stop to think about it, pretty much everything in your grocery store has some commercial water in it – containing fluoride and chloride. This means that even if you drink pure well water, fluoride may be endangering your health from other sources.
Fluoride is in toothpaste, mouthwash, dental treatments, pills, juice, soft drinks, canned food, commercial fruit and vegetables, and some non-stick coated cookware.
Even if you have a garden and grow your own food – are you watering it with contaminated tap water?
You’re getting substantially more fluoride than from just your tap water.
Toxic Effects of Fluoride
Half of all ingested fluoride remains in your skeletal system – all your bones – and accumulates with age.
The US Public Health Service has stated that fluoride makes your bones more brittle and dental enamel more porous. Several recent epidemiological studies suggest that only a few years of drinking fluoridated water will increase your risk of bone fractures. Bone fluorosis (joint pain and arthritic symptoms) can be a precursor to fractures.
Even the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says when fluoride is present in higher concentrations than is legally allowed in drinking water, health problems can occur, especially for children.
Clearly, your fluoride intake is higher than you think – and more than what’s safe.
Toxic Effects of Chloride
Chlorine is added to tap water to kill pathogens like bacteria. It ALSO kills the good bacteria in your digestive system, leading to compromised digestion, immunity and overall poor health.
By itself, chlorine is relatively benign, and is added to keep us free from infectious diarrhea. But it reacts with organic materials that are already dissolved in water, forming chemical DBPs (disinfection by-products) that are over 100 times more toxic than chlorine – dangerous, carcinogenic Trihalomethanes, according to Dr. Joseph M. Price, MD…
Numerous epidemiological studies support the concept that water chlorination increases cancer risks. “Chlorine is the greatest crippler and killer of modern times. It is an insidious poison”. ~ Dr. Joseph M. Price, MD, in Moseby’s Medical Dictionary
Results from studies of people drinking chlorinated water over long periods:
- 21% risk increase for bladder cancer
- 38% risk increase in for rectal cancer
- The residents of a small town in Pennsylvania ate diets rich in saturated animal fats and milk had no heart attacks – until they switched from mountain spring water to fluoridated water.
- Research from the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands discovered that people who swam in chlorinated pools or polluted waters as children had 2.2 to 2.4 times the risk of developing melanoma compared to those who did not swim in chlorinated waters.
- Male smokers who drank chlorinated tap water for more than 40 years had double the risk of bladder cancer as smoking males who drank non-chlorinated water.
According to the U.S. Council of Environmental Quality,
“The cancer risk to people who drink chlorinated water is 93% higher than those who don’t.”
Americans are drinking 300 to 600 times what the Environmental Protection Agency considers a safe amount – pretty scary!
Now that we’ve established the necessity to create better tap water, here’s how…
Two Ways to De-contaminate Your Tap Water
1. Avesa Water System
Energized Water with NO waste
Energized water has its molecules restructured, that means returned to their original, pure and super-hydrating state like a fresh mountain spring.
Get rid of chlorine and health risks.
Protect your intestinal flora and overall health.

The Best Value In Water Filtration
For mere pennies a day, you can have alkaline-balanced, clean, delicious water for the rest of your life!
Enjoy healthy water that carries a spiritually uplifted energy! Crystal Boost Technology uses pure quartz crystals from deep within the earth, to erase your water’s negative memory. Then it gives your water a vortex spin that actually lifts the vibrational quality of the water.
Either on your counter or below, to get both alkaline and acidic water from your tap: filtered, pH balanced and energetically harmonized – Energized!
The Avesa Water system removes unwanted contaminants (not including fluoride), then structures – or Energizes – your water. If you need to remove fluoride also, you will need to replace the Avesa Water Pre-Carbon Filter with a fluoride-removing filter. Filters are easy to replace, and available in home building supply stores.
2. AlkaZone Water Ionizers
Ionized water gives superior hydration, alkalizing potential and antioxidant properties.
Gives both alkaline and acidic water from your regular tap water.
Separated alkaline water from acidic water so you can drink the alkaline, and bathe/shower and wash with the acidic water.
People who are deficient in excess electrons (alkaline, electro-negative, antioxidant) will benefit from drinking the alkalized water in multiple ways.

For typical family use.
Water Ionizer BHL-4200
Superior Two-Stage Filtration and high Alkaline and Structured water flow for hydration, alkalizing potential and antioxidant properties.
