Can drinking water make you fat? Can antibiotics make you fat? What if you only drink bottled water? Cook in non-stick pots and pans? There is more than one answer to these questions, but researchers have uncovered a startling link between drinking water and endocrine disruption with subsequent weight gain. It is much worse than we ever thought. Why has this never come to light? Big greed and big liability. Read on . . . .
In 2006, The National Research Council published a report of the impact of Fluoride on the human body. This is what they said, “In summary, evidence of several types indicates that fluoride affects normal endocrine function or response….Fluoride is therefore an endocrine disruptor.”
The research goes all the way back to 1854 when Maumene linked goiter in dogs to exposure to fluoride. Subsequent studies have found goiter in areas that had sufficient iodine, but had fluoride in their water.
Between the 1920s- 1950s, medical doctors dosed their hyperthyroid (excess thyroid) patients with fluoride to successfully depress the thyroid. Doses corresponding to those consumed in fluoridated water areas were enough to reduce the Basal Metabolism Rate.
If fluoride calms down an overactive thyroid, then what would it do to a normal or underactive one? You guessed it. A recent study done in the Ukraine found that long-term consumption of fluoridated water (2.3 parts per million) showed elevated TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) and a decrease in T3. The conclusion was that excess fluoride in the drinking water was a risk factor of rapid development of thyroid pathology. These conditions were found in dosages that a child would reach by drinking 1-2 glasses of 1ppm Fluoridated water per day. Depending on your city, you have between 2-4 ppm fluoride in your water).
“The NRC committee concluded that fluoride can subtly alter endocrine function, especially in the thyroid – the gland that produces hormones regulating growth and metabolism.”
Fluoride has been found to be much more toxic to the enzymes of the body that regulate life and metabolism than uranium.
When you drink bottled water, not only are you drinking estrogen-mimicking plastic, but if the water is fluoridated, and many of them are, then you are not avoiding fluoridation’s effects.
“Dasani and Aquafina, which are nothing more than purified tap water, will most likely contain fluoride. Poland Spring, FIJI Water, Perrier, and Deer Park contain fluoride, and even boast its health benefits on their websites. Evian makes no mention of fluoride on its website either way.” If you are drinking natural spring water, the bottlers do not have to put fluoride on their label, if the waters naturally contain fluoride. They only have to disclose it if it has been added to the water. http://www.ehow.com/about_5370977_bottled-waters-contain-fluoride.html#ixzz2lKe14Phx
Many pharmaceutical drugs contain fluoride, because one of fluoride’s properties is that it makes whatever it is added to more potent. Common antibiotics like Cipro, and drugs like Prozac contain fluoride. There are many incidents of someone going to the doctor for strep throat or some other infection, being prescribed Cipro, then having chronic fluoride poisoning thereafter.
In fact, fibromyalgia has been linked to prescription fluorinated drugs. Think about this the next time your doctor wants to prescribe a fluorinated drug. Do you want to depress your thyroid? Depress your metabolism? Gain weight? Experience one of the many effects of fluoride poisoning? Ask your doctor to prescribe a non-fluorinated drug instead. You can find out which drugs contain fluoride, as many of them will contain an “FL” in their chemical name.
We will talk more about fluorinated drugs, about fluoride’s link to diabetes and heart disease, as well as kidney disease in upcoming newstips. Also in upcoming news tips, fluoride and your children, and fluoride’s effect on the golden years.
How can cooking in nonstick pots/pans make you fat? The majority of nonstick coatings are made of Teflon, which contains fluoride. When heated, Teflon pans can gas fluoride out into your kitchen. There is a well-known warning about keeping small animals out of your kitchen area while cooking in nonstick pans, as they may die immediately from the fumes.
So, if you think that your weight gain, lethargy, excessive tiredness, and inability to lose weight are your fault, they may be due to your unknowing fluoride consumption/poisoning. Your “laziness” and depression may be due to fluoride consumption. These are all common side effects of fluoride.

This is why we at Natural Plus Plus LLC tirelessly educate about fluoride. This is why we designed the only fluoride filter that we know of (and we have checked out lots of them) that will remove fluoride down to non-detectable levels at the kitchen sink. This is why our filters are large and costly. Other water filter manufacturers won’t go to the lengths that we have gone to protect you and your children from the effects of fluoride poisoning. So why would you waste money on a cheap filter that doesn’t do the same job as ours does?
