Drop of Water Onto Surface of Water Is Fluoride Overdose Possible?

Water is for everyone, fluoride is not.

How much fluoride are you already swallowing?

Many beverages, baby foods, cereals, and juices are processed with fluoridated water, and vegetables having been sprayed with fluoride-based pesticides and fertilizers already contain unsafe levels of fluoride far above the amount suggested for artificial water fluoridation - 1 part per million (1 mg per liter of water).

In addition, it is impossible to control the amount of water any single individual drinks; therefore, it is impossible to control how much fluoride adults, children, and infants ingest.

Therefore - overdosing is inevitable.

The following tables of common U.S. foods and beverages tested by various
laboratories will show how easy it is to overdose on fluoride in most diets.
