Distilled Water Bad for Teeth


Bottled water doesn't have added Fluoride

Many folks are using bottled water instead of tap water to drink.  This means their children are not getting the benefits of fluoridation for their teeth--since bottled water doesn't have added Fluoride.

A report by the Australian Dental Association has found that the lack of enamel-strengthening fluoride in bottled water is a major factor in the high level of tooth decay in children.

A study conducted by the Australian Research Centre for Oral Health, Adelaide, Australia, found that permanent tooth decay in 14- and 15-year-olds increased by 71% in the 6 years until 2002. The increase in tooth decay coincided with the rise in popularity of bottled water and sports drinks in the mid 1990s.

Even the New Zealand Artesian Wells were adversely affected by the Radioactive Fallout from the French A- Bonb Tests.

The massive increase in decay reversed improvements in dental health after fluoride was introduced to water systems in the early 1970s. One researcher also blamed sustained-release sugary foods, such as boiled sweets and lollipops, for the increase in tooth decay.




Distilled Water has no minerals in it.  If distilled water contacts you tooth it sucks out the minerals from the enamel surface and starts to thin the enamel and accelerate its destruction.

Small communities in mountainous regions sometimes got their water supplies from melting glaciers and snow.  If the melted ice did not have the opportunity to flow underground, it was essentially distilled water.  And the people who drank it day-in, day-out, experienced high levels of tooth decay and early tooth loss. 

Xenia, Ohio has voted in the past to exclude fluoride in their public water supply
