FLUORIDE CONTENT OF BOTTLED WATER

Fluoride Action Network | August 2012 | By Michael Connett

bottled water

As with other fresh water supplies (e.g., spring water, lake water, river water), bottled waters have low levels of fluoride. Fresh surface water contains an average of just 0.05 ppm. To put this in perspective, artificially fluoridated water (using industrial-grade fluoride chemicals) contains 0.7 to 1.2 ppm fluoride, which is 14 to 24 times more than the average natural level.

Since most bottled water is derived from fresh surface water sources, it is not surprising to find that the levels in bottled water are generally very low. According to the USDA, the average level of fluoride in bottled water is 0.11 ppm. (USDA 2005). Less than 10% of bottled waters contain more than 0.3 ppm.Although some fluoride proponents claim that the increased use of bottled water could be an explanation for the increase in tooth decay being seen in young children today. This, however, is a dubious claim. As an American Dental Association spokesman, Dr. Jonathan Shenkin, conceded in August 2012, “there has been no research to show using bottled water causes tooth decay.” In fact, the limited research that has been conducted has found no relationship between bottled water consumption and tooth decay — a finding consistent with other recent evidence on the ineffectiveness of fluoridated drinking water.

Fluoride Levels in Bottled Water

The following are the recorded fluoride levels in several popular bottled water brands sold in the United States. If the bottled water  brand that you purchase is not included on this list, you can find out the fluoride level by calling the company, as this is information they should have readily available.

Got Fluoride?

Fluoride Health Problems

There is a lot of controversy surrounding the presence of fluoride in public drinking water (fluoridation). For starters, before fluoride was used to fight cavities, it was (and still is) used in insecticides and rat poision.

Fluorosis is a condition that wears down the enamal of the tooth, leaving behind white spots, making the teeth more vulnerable to cavities and decay. Fluorosis is a very real health condition that can effect both children and adults. More and more evidence is mounting against the use of fluoride, even in small amounts. But it doesn’t appear to be a critical issue according to the US Surgeon Generals, as the last 5 Surgeon Generals have supported the fluoridation of drinking water. Incidentally, the claimed health benefits almost always point to oral health. Fortunately, the CDC is calling for new labeling rules requiring manufacturers to list a product’s fluoride content, which we have found to be missing in some cases.

What is too much Fluoride?

Fluoride itself is actually required by our bodies in low doses. When consumed in high amounts, specifically the man-made fluoride that is in public drinking water, can cause problems.

An estimated 5-10g of sodium fluoride can be lethal for some adults. While fluoride provides benefits to your oral health, it can also come with adverse side effects, that vary in severity depending upon the amount of fluoride consumed. Excessive consumption of fluoride can lead to gastrointestinal discomfort. This can occur with doses 15 to 20 times lower than actual lethal doses (0.2-0.3mg/kg). Fluoride in exessive amounts can also cause problems in the formation bone.

  • Children under 6: (Toothpaste) – “A pea sized amount”
  • Adults: (Toothpaste) fluoride dentifrice (1,000 ppmF) or 1.0 g or more for adults

How to Remove Fluoride from Drinking Water

Reverse Osmosis Filtration
This process is used for purifying some, but not all types of bottled water. Reverse osmosis systems is typically not affordable for personal or general public use.

Activated Alumina Defluoridation Filter
A home water filtration solution. But it’s quite an expensive solution at approximately $30/filter and the filters require frequent replacement.

******************************************************

Distillation Filtration 
Commercial distillation filters that can be purchase to remove fluoride from water. While the fluoride can be removed from distilled water, it still may have other impurities that could prevent it from being unusable as drinking water.

Brita, Pur, and other Filters
These filters do not remove Fluoride. If you check the websites, and labels, the descriptions state that fluoride is left in the water after filtration.

Will Boiling Water Remove Fluoride?
No, this will only concentrate the fluoride rather than reduce it.

Will Freezing Water Reduce Fluoride?
No, this method has no affect on the presence of fluoride.

How to Reduce Fluoride Exposure

Check Water Bottling Labels for Fluoride
Read labels on bottles. Unless they are made with distilled or reverse-osmosis water, it was probably made with fluoridated public water.

Toothpaste without Fluoride

Consider using un-fluoridated toothpaste.
