How Chronic Fluoride Can Damage Mitochondria And The Gut Biome

Fluoride is a trace element, but it is found in our daily exposure more than a "trace". 

In small amounts, it appears to be okay

The problems with fluoride appear to be in chronic use of it over long periods of time, and/or being exposed to a high dose of it in a single instance. 

Apart from skeletal tissue and teeth, fluoride can cause changes in the kidneys, liver, thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary gland, testis, muscle tissues, stomach, brain, neurons, and immune system. 

I have mild dental fluorosis, probably from drinking too much fluoridated water, using fluoridated toothpaste, along with taking fluoride at the dentist to protect my enamel.

Are EMFs Dangerous? Unbiased Science-Based Review of Electromagnetic Fields

Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) are perceived as environmental stressors on living organisms.

But since man-made EMFs are a very new stressor for humans, our cells have not developed proper defensive mechanisms against them. 

For example, EMFs are classified as possibly carcinogenic (cancer causing) as is arsenic, chloroform, cigarettes, DDT, estrogenics, heavy metals, roundup, etc. 

It seems clear that we would not willingly expose ourselves to these other agents, so why would we expose ourselves EMFs?

Is it from digital dementia (using electronics to remember everything for us) or FOMO (fear of missing out)? 

In this post, to simplify everything, I'll try to stay away from quantum physics as much as possible. πŸ˜‰

I'll also show as unbiased of an opinion of EMFs as possible, but I do give you my opinion towards the end.

I'll also provide ways you can protect yourself from the downsides of EMFs.

Our workspaces are indoors, powered by fluorescent blue lights (which blue has its own negatives).

We only get sun rarely and it's either partial (such as through glass while driving to work) or too much (single sessions of long periods hanging out at the beach).

We also try to supplement for the sun by taking vitamin D hormone supplements, which is not as bioactive for creating the active form vitamin D.
