Our Daily Dose

Runtime: 20m | Release date: 2015

Hailed by the Centers for Disease Control as one of the top ten public health achievements of the 20th century, water fluoridation is something most of us assume to be safe and effective. But new science has upended this assumption, revealing that fluoride is a developmental neurotoxin and an endocrine disruptor. The CDC tells us that drinking fluoride decreases tooth decay, at best, by 25%. That is one-half to one cavity per person over a lifetime. Is one less cavity worth risking a child's long-term brain and thyroid health? It's time to rethink this very old practice.

In Our Daily Dose, filmmaker Jeremy Seifert lays out the dangers of water fluoridation informatively and creatively, highlighting the most current research and interviewing top-tier doctors, activists, and attorneys close to the issue. Through thoughtful examination of old beliefs and new science, the film alerts us to the health threat present in the water and beverages we rely on every day. This is an eye-opening look at how we have less control over our health than we may have thought.

Hi Cheryl! Fluoride is a drug put in our public water in an attempt to treat the disease of dental decay. However, we’re also exposing ourselves to high levels of toxic industrial fluoride, chlorine and other chemicals from other sources like water we use for our shower among other things. I also recommend you to watch Fluoride: A Friend Who Wants to Harm You for more information about Fluoride: https://www.fmtv.com/watch/fluoride-a-friend-who-wants-to-harm-you. ~ Jasmin

Great short video. Now I know why I have white stains on my teeth. Flouride linked to hypothyriodism. Will keep it in mind.

I tried filtering for a while, but now I buy reverse osmosis filtered water from Meijers or Whole Foods. It's inconvenient, but at less than 60 cents per gallon, I think it's cheaper than filtering, and I know it's pretty close to pure and delicious. You can also buy glass jugs if you don't want to store it in plastic. I use these: https://www.amazon.com/Home-Brew-Ohio-Polyseal-Capacity/dp/B01IHGRJG6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1495736705&sr=8-1&keywords=glass+jugs
