On his show “How Safe is your Drinking Water?”, Dr. Oz actually talks about water fluoridation.
He introduces the topic by saying that if you don’t want fluoride in your drinking water, you can use a water filtration system to get it out. Dr. Oz uses Reverse Osmosis (RO) to remove fluoride from his family’s water! He explains that RO systems are affordable, compact systems that remove fluoride plus a list of other water contaminants. He even shows pictures of RO systems, stating, “They are a reasonable investment for a lot of families out there.”
Oz stresses to check with your local water company’s C.C.R. (Consumer Confidence Report) regarding the level fluoride in your drinking water.
It’s impressive that he strongly emphasizes that we’re giving our children far too much toothpaste, that they should never use more than a pea-sized dab of fluoride toothpaste.
Yep, you read it right. According to Dr. Oz, IF you severely limit the amount of fluoridated toothpaste you use AND totally remove fluoride from your drinking water, you can avoid dental fluorosis.
I’m impressed with ol’ Dr. Oz for sticking out his neck like that on national TV. Sure, he could have said to use NON fluoridated toothpaste – and who knows, maybe he wanted to say it. But at any rate, at least the man recommended that we:
Get the “F” out!!
That’s pretty ballsy of him, considering how strong the fluoridation proponents have proven to be. In the same “How Safe Is Your Drinking Water” show, Dr. Oz interviews Lisa Jackson, head of the EPA. Unfortunately Lisa Jackson still believes in adding fluoride to our public water supply. On the up side, she does say the EPA is considering lowering the level because of overexposure and the resulting dental fluorosis problem.
