Doctor's Note

What may be the best source of hydration for kids? See my video Does a Drink of Water Make Children Smarter?

Might tea also cause dehydration? Check out Is Caffeinated Tea Dehydrating? 

Beyond cosmetic issues, what should we eat and drink to keep our mouth healthy? See my videos Plant-Based Diets: Oral Health and Plant-Based Diets: Dental Health.

What was that about cranberries keeping bacteria from sticking to the wall of the bladder? See my last video, Can Cranberry Juice Treat Bladder Infections?

The mouthwash video I reference is: Don’t Use Antiseptic Mouthwash and the fluoride toxicity case report at Overdosing on Tea.

What about all those folks that say fluoride is a poison to be avoided at all costs? I offer my brief two cents in the Q&A The Dangers of Fluoride? There are elements for which there is no safe level of exposure. I explore a few in my next video, Fukushima and Radioactivity in Seafood.

For more context check out my blog: Tea and Flouride Risk

    What do you think of fluoride in toothpaste? Do you think we should stop using fluoride containing toothpastes? What do recent studies show? Thank you!

    • Nibiskusse

      Oh sorry, I just saw your Q&A on the Dangers of Fluoride.

    Hang on, are Yamanaka et al concluding that cranberry juice selectively inhibits adhesion of pathogenic bacteria but not beneficial bacteria?

    Fluoridation Opposition is Scientific,Respectable & Growing

    Over 4,600 professionals (including 365 dentists and 566 MD’s) urge that fluoridation be stopped because science shows fluoridation is ineffective and harmful. See statement: http://www.fluoridealert.org/researchers/professionals-statement/text/

    Nobel Prizewinner in Medicine, Dr. Arvid Carlsson, says, “Fluoridation is against all principles of modern pharmacology. It’s really obsolete.”
