EPA Calls for Reduction in Fluoride in Drinking Water

Monday, March 7th, 2011

For decades, fluoride has been added to drinking water helping to prevent cavities and fight halitosis and tooth decay in the United States. Recently the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have officially stated that only the minimum requirements of fluoride should be added to drinking water, reducing the current amount.

Along with our water supply, fluoride is found in many oral care products. According to the EPA, fluoride is used to prevent tooth decay by slowing the loss of tooth enamel. Just a small amount between 0.7 and 1.2 milligrams is effective. The EPA and HHS are now suggesting the acceptable level of fluoride in drinking water should be at the minimum of 0.7 milligrams per liter.

The reason for this change is the increasing amount of fluoride that is available through dental cleanings, oral care products such as toothpaste, and tap water.

One of the results of tooth decay is bad breath. When halitosis is prevalent, fluoride in drinking water may do little to help with curing bad breath. While it is important to be hydrated to avoid dry mouth, maintaining a healthy oral care routine is very important. TheraBreath products are guaranteed to stop bad breath. After all, if just drinking water eliminated bad breath and cavities, dentists would be out of business!

Also consider trying an oral care probiotic that can help your body’s ability to resist cavities, sore throats, ear infections, tonsil stones, bad breath and more.

Huge Tonsils!!!!!Many people who suffer from bad breath are urgently seeking the reason for their bad breath. There are many theories about how bad breath arises and one common myth is that it comes from the stomach, but this is just a myth – it is not fact. The truth is that the majority of bad breath comes from the back of the tongue. However, there is a connection between your tonsils and bad breath too.

Before we discuss tonsils and bad breath, you need to have a good idea of whether that is your problem. There is a very small chance that your tonsils are the source of your bad breath. In fact, 80-90% of bad breath is due to bacteria on the tongue and only 3-5% of bad breath is a result of the tonsils. Therefore, before you jump the gun and begin suspecting your tonsils, there are a couple ways to rule out your tongue.
