1.)Drink Rain Water (from tanks). This is difficult if you live in a town house, a home unit or a rented property.
2.) Use Reverse Osmosis Filtration ✹ This three-stage system (RO) needs regular servicing and wastes 2-4 times the saved water to continually wash the filtering membranes. (The cost to ordinary citizens for abandoning the public water system or purchasing expensive reverse osmosis or distillation equipment, is high, because simple filtration will not remove fluoride. This is an unfair burden placed on all segments of populations but especially the least able to afford it.)
3.)Use Steam Distillation. These systems produce clean water using electricity. Drinking distilled water may be helpful when detoxifying for a week or two but costly.
4.) Buy Bottled Water.
Bottled water is responsible for over 60,000 tones of greenhouse gas emissions every year. Only 35% of plastic PET gets recycled in Australia the rest becomes landfill. Many brands of bottled water are not fluoride free even if they are labelled ‘Spring Water’. Bottled water is less regulated than tap water, or wine. There is a push to fluoridate bottled water. We can presume this will solve the problem for the bottlers who would otherwise need to install and maintain R.O. filters in their bottling factories. •
• USA – As a packaged food product, comprehensively regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), bottled water labels must contain the name and place of business of the bottler, packer or distributor, and virtually all bottled water products provide a telephone number. With this information, consumers may contact the bottled water company directly to obtain information about the product. Bottled water companies must also follow fluoride labeling guidelines should fluoride be added to the product or be present at a naturally occurring level as set for the by FDA regulation (21C.F.R. §165.110(b).
5.)Move To A Town With No Fluoride In The Water.
Many Australians allergic to fluoride have moved to Queensland only to find that Queensland is now being fluoridated ! Thank you Anna Bligh
✹ ONLY a 0.0001 micron membrane will remove fluoride. The 0.0002 micron membranes which are being imported from Asia will not.

TOTAL AVOIDANCE IS IMPOSSIBLE:
Absorption Though Skin, Cleaning, Swimming, Showering, Bathing, (Bidet) and Clothes Washing will result in some assimilation through the skin. Boiling water will NOT remove fluoride; indeed it will increase the concentration. This will occur due to evaporation e.g. electric jugs, kettles and aquariums. (Do not top up you kettle or electric jug, empty and refill each time…)
BOILNG WATER WILL REMOVE CHLORINE BUT NOT FLUORIDES.
Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium, Iodine, Shilajit [60 minerals], Boron and Strontium, (not Strontium-90) these will need to be part of the diet of every one who is concerned about this problem. “Boron effectively counteracts symptoms of fluoride intoxication in humans (Zhou et al. 1987) and in experimentally poisoned rabbits (Elsair et al. 1980a, 1980b, 1981). Humans suffering from skeletal fluorosis experienced 50 to 80% improvement after drinking solutions containing 300 to 1,100 mg of borax/L daily, 3 weeks a month for 3 months (Zhou et al. 1987). Boron enhances sequestration of fluoride from bone and excretion through kidneys and possibly the intestinal tract (Elair et al. 1980a, 1981).
Borax is a compound form of boron, with oxygen and sodium attached. (However EXCESS BORON CAN CAUSE PROBLEMS. Conditions like ADHD, dyslexia, autism, asthma, allergies, cystic fibrosis, liver and oseophageal cancer can be triggered or made worse with excess boron. Boron increases estrogen and calcium levels and lowers B6, zinc, and blood glucose. Signs of toxicity are nausea, vomiting, lethargy, dermatitis and diarrhea. The antidote is extra vitamin B2. –
Tamarind (Tamarindus indicus) intake is likely to help in delaying progression
of fluorosis by enhancing urinary excretion of fluoride. [It Grows well in SE Qld.]
Turmeric shown to protect brain against fluoride poisoning.
Lycopene helps to minimize the toxic effects of fluoride. It is a carotenoid antioxidant that gives fruits and vegetables like tomatoes and watermelon a pink or red colour. It is more powerful than that of other carotenoids, such as beta-carotene. It’s found in tomatoes (especially cooked tomatoes), apricots, guavas, watermelons, papayas, and pink grapefruits.
Societies with poor diets are at greatest risk from fluoride damage, indeed nutrition explains the great variation in damage between individuals, especially variations of vitamin C status.
♦ (Bromide used in bread making and PBDEs [flame retardants] like fluorides are toxic antagonists of iodine and interfere with thyroid function. Fluoride was commonly used to treat HYPERthyroidism in the early and mid-1900s at doses commonly ingested by people today).
There are only preliminary estimates available regarding how much F. is absorbed through our skin and lungs when we stand naked in our shower or soak in the bath contaminated by fluoridated water – and then we pay for this indignity in our council water bill. –
The renal clearance of fluoride is high compared with other halogens.↓
