Here Are The Facts About The
Fluoride In Himalayan Salt.
Donít confuse naturally occurring fluoride with man made chemical fluoride.
There are two kinds of fluoride.
Widely distributed in Nature, Fluoride makes up 0.03% of the earth's crust. It appears mainly in the form of the minerals cryolite (sodium fluoride) and fluorspar (calcium fluoride) which are made from the non-metallic hydrogen element fluorine and combines with other elements to form fluorides.
The trace element fluorine is also present in the body, almost entirely in bones and teeth, in the form of fluoride. Fluoride serves as a catalyst for both the mineralization of enamel on the developing tooth prior to emergence and for ongoing remineralization of surface enamel. Cavities are caused by bacteria, which multiply when food is ingested to produce
organic acids. Fluoride protects the teeth by changing some of the tooth crystal into a crystal that is less acid-soluble called
Fluoride is part of Nature's system for maintaining teeth, and occurs in very small amounts in many foods and natural water supplies.
The form of "fluoride" dumped into our drinking water is NOT naturally occurring sodium or calcium fluoride, but fluorosilicic acid, a liquid by-product of fertilizer manufacturing and is corrosive and highly toxic. The Material Safety Data Sheet warns "do not breathe
vapour...do not get in eyes [or] on skin." When heated, or when it
reacts with water or steam, fluorosilicic acid decomposes almost instantly into corrosive and toxic hydrogen fluoride as a gas or liquid.
The amount of fluoride from fluorosilicic acid that is present in drinking water supplies may even cause or contribute to cancer, genetic damage, mottling of the teeth, and neurological injury. It accumulates in our bones, making them more brittle and prone to fracture.
Sodium and calcium fluoride are present throughout nature and are, essential to health.
A laboratory test was done on Himalayan Salt, which found fluoride to be present in the salt at 0.1 part per million. Indeed, since fluoride is widely distributed throughout nature, one would expect to find a trace of fluoride in a natural, unrefined salt.
Fluoride is present in Himalayan Salt in the form and amount determined by Nature to be optimal to life. It also contains all other naturally occurring elements, including arsenic, uranium, plutonium, mercury, gold, and more. Recently, it was discovered that Himalayan Salt contained the element Promethium in minute amounts it is rarely found on Earth. Its
presence in Himalayan Salt was an important discovery as Promethium is only found in infants in the first three to four months after birth and is directly linked to the development of the body's immune system.
Although there is fluoride in Himalayan Salt, it simply cannot be equated to the fluoride found in tap water. Fluoride in tap water is a hazardous waste material that causes harm to the body; the natural fluoride present in Himalayan Salt is a beneficial material that contributes to the health of the body.
Unrefined Himalayan Salt Should Be The Salt Of Choice.
