Fluoride is a natural mineral found in the soil that can sometimes penetrate into our water supplies.  You may have naturally occurring fluoride in your water, and sometimes municipalities add fluoride to water.   The addition of fluoride to drinking water began in the 1930s when researchers determined that people in areas with naturally fluoridated water had fewer cavities than people who didn’t consume fluoridated water.

Today, there is a growing concern about water with a high concentration of fluoride.  While fluoride can help reduce the incidence of tooth decay, too much fluoride may contribute to health issues.  Some studies show that excessive consumption of fluoride can cause a condition known as fluorosis which damages the teeth, joints, and bones.

If you want to know just how much fluoride is in your water, you need the TestAssured Fluoride Test Kit.  This is an actual lab test.  You will receive samples bottles, and a postage-paid package to return your water sample.  Your water sample will be sent to a certified laboratory for testing.

Description

While a certain amount of fluoride is necessary for your dental health, too much fluoride can be harmful.  Children who consume too much fluoride are susceptible to dental fluorosis which can cause spots and discolorations on the teeth.  Excessive fluoride can also cause skeletal fluorosis, resulting in painful joints and damaged bones.  In extreme cases, too much fluoride can affect the parathyroid gland, causing hyperparathyroidism.

Fluoride is naturally found in some water sources and is often added to municipal water supplies.  If you are concerned about the amount of fluoride that you and your family are consuming, you should test your water.  The TestAssured Fluoride Test Kit will provide you with accurate results from a certified lab.

The EPA has set an allowable limit for fluoride in drinking water.  Their maximum contaminant level (MCL) is 4.0 mg/L or 4.0 ppm. The EPA has set this level as a measure to prevent potential health problems. Using our Fluoride Water Test Kit is one of the simplest measures you can take to protect yourself and your family from the dangers of excessive fluoride consumption.
