This issue is somewhat different because so much of this newsletter is dedicated to ending public water fluoridation. As a local, family run business, issues of grave concern to health bring us to our feet and present us with an opportunity to promote change that secures health for the future. There are many such important issues, however, none is more avoidable than the harms from fluoridation. All we need to do is stop doing it.

Water, dihydrogen oxide, is our essence, it is formless and transparent- it can scald or freeze a person. It is tasteless and odorless. Water seems unaware of the rules of chemistry or physics- its very nature is perplexing. Yet we are composed of 65% water and a tomato is almost entirely made up of water, 95%. Water molecules are ever changing their molecular partners billions of times per second, tightly enough to flow as a stream and loosely enough that you can dive into a pool of water. When it freezes instead of shrinking it increases in volume by 10%, and has the strangest physical ability to freeze at 32 degrees F and boil at 212 degrees F.

Without water we would soon dehydrate and be a skeleton. Without water we would be lost. In California we have tried to maintain the purity of this incredible substance through Proposition 65 -  Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 In it the State of California has come up with many toxic chemicals, that if found in the water, require labeling that there is a risk using the water. On that list are a few derivatives of fluorine but not fluorsilicic acid explicitly- of course it should be on that list, especially when you consider much of the fluorsilicic acid is coming from China and with it apparently lead and arsenic which are on the top of the list of Prop 65. Yet the District Water Boards seem to have no toxicology reports for what they are adding to the water- nor do they seem concerned to know- a grave problem when it comes to our health. 

So please excuse my urgency to change this situation, but when you find out the truth you can't just do nothing.

There is a March and Symposium on March 22nd, 2013 - also World Water Day - sponsored by FluorideOut.org of which I have become a member, to bring public light and action to this important issue.

Please join me and others to make this issue heard and resolved to our healthful benefit.

Health & happiness,

Michael

Four Little Pills That Make a BIG Difference!

Serraflazyme                      R-Lipoic 50mg                  Organic Germanium 100mg                   GH3 Gerovital H3 

Cardiovascular Research / Ecological Formulas Serraflazyme An article written in Natural News along with references reports of a 2008 study that compared Serratiopeptidase and its anti-inflammatory activity with 2 human pancreatic proteolytic enzymes (trypsin and chymotrypsin) and aspirin. Although all groups were effective at reducing inflammation, serratiopeptidase was the most effective. (6) It was also proven to be effective at reducing swelling and pain intensity in individuals with carpel tunnel and sprained ankles.(7-8) Other studies have shown similar anti-inflammatory effects after oral surgery was performed.(9)

A 2006 study looked at the role serratiopeptidase has on improving immunity. This experimental animal study involved implanting a biofilm-forming bacteria (Staphylococcus epidermis) into a group of rats. The group given serratiopeptidase was highly effective at eliminating this infection. The researchers credited the antibiofilm properties of this specific enzyme as being the key factor. It is also hypothesized that this enzyme may be used to make antibodies more effective. (10)

This nutrient also has a controversial background indicated by Wikipedia. The information of wikipedia is public and in the nutrient arena often one sided but always interesting.

Tierra Mega Nutrients Gerovital GH-3 this is the original Dr. Ana Aslan formula developed in Romania and used throughout the world. Us Presidents such as President Kennedy and President Reagan visited and used the product for its special benefits. For more information to read click here presented in Wikipedia- keep in mind that all research was done in Romanian and Russian and not English. Although there are not recognized studies in English it appears that she was fully recognized and appreciated throughout the world for her work.

Jarrow Germanium GE-132 a rare element usually thought of as something used in microprocessors, became known as a valuable nutrient? It happened because of the curiosity and insight of one man, Japanese scientist, Dr. Kazuhiko Asai. After discovering the biologic value of Bis-Beta Carboxyethyl Germanium, "Organic Germanium Complex", also called Ge-Oxy 132, he set-up the Asai Research Institute and Clinic in Tokyo, Japan, to conduct clinical trials.

People were treated with Dr. Asai's Organic Germanium (Ge-Oxy 132) at dosages ranging from as low as 50 mg. to as high as 3000 mg. (3 grams) per day. Read the full article for the amazing actions of this nutrient.

Intensive Nutrition r-Lipoic Acid  contains the “R” form of Alpha Lipoic Acid, a well known antioxidant formula that is believed to help delay the onset of aging as well as act as a potent antioxidant in the brain. Most Alpha Lipoic Acid is a racemic mixture of both “S” and “R” forms of Alpha Lipoic Acid. Intensive Nutrition’s R-Lipoic contains only the “R” component of Alpha Lipoic Acid. The “R” form is the biologically active component of Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) which means that it is the only form that one’s body can absorb and synthesize. In addition, “R” Lipoic formulas are TEN TIMES MORE effective than racemic ALA products.

When Will WE End Public Water Fluoridation?

It took over 40 years before the dangers of lead to health and the environment was
acknowledged and banned from the gasoline used in our cars. The US banned lead in indoor
paint 44 years after most of Europe. Lead was not removed from food containers until 1993.
It wasn’t until 1938 that radioactive minerals were banned from being added to toothpaste.

When will it be that fluoride/fluorine will be banned from public water and as an additive
to toothpaste? When will public water fluoridation be recognized for its dangerous toxicity
to health and the environment? When will it end?

Join us on this local, regional, national movement to ban water fluoridation.
In the last 60 years over 70% of the US is now using fluoridated water based on early
statistical studies of the industry that has its financial wealth tied into water fluoridation.
Just like the lead studies that had been funded by the manufacturers of lead additives and
that financially benefitted from its addition to gasoline were wrong; Science today proves
water fluoridation is wrong and bad for health and bad for the environment!

It must be stopped! Learn the truth, the proven science of water fluoridation from the
last 20 years. Forget all you think you know of its benefits from the past. The truth tells a very
different story.

Learn, become active and share this knowledge to protect yourself, your family, your
environment, your community.

Join us March 22nd, 2013 and into the future to ban water fluoridation.

URGENT: From the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration):

  •  ''Warning: Keep out of the reach of children under 6 years of age. If you accidentally swallow more than used

for brushing, seek professional assistance or contact a Poison Control Center immediately.''

  • If you are feeding a baby formula as its main diet avoid fluoridated water; otherwise excessive amount of

toxic fluoride could easily occur.

A Rebuttal of the… 10 Reasons to Fluoridate Public Water From The American Dental Association

1.       Single most effective public health measure to prevent tooth decay. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has proclaimed community water fluoridation one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Ten Great Public Health Achievements – United States, 1990-1999.” MMWR 1999;48(12):241-3.

Quite the contrary… "When historians come to write about this period, they will single out fluoridation as the single biggest mistake in public policy that we've ever had."

- Paul Connett, PhD, Biochemistry

"Water fluoridation is the single largest case of scientific fraud, promoted by the government, supported by taxpayer dollars, aided and abetted by the ADA and the AMA, in the history of the planet."

- David Kennedy, DDS President International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology

Fluoridation is the greatest fraud that has ever been perpetrated and it has been perpetrated on more people than any other fraud has."

- Albert Schatz, PhD Nobel Laureate for discovering streptomycin
quoted in Sutton's Fluoridation:The Greatest Fraud

Where fluoridation has been discontinued in communities from Canada, the former East Germany, Cuba and Finland, dental decay has not increased but has actually decreased (Maupome 2001; Kunzel and Fischer,1997,2000; Kunzel 2000 and Seppa 2000).

2.    Natural. Fluoride is already present in all water sources, even the oceans. Water fluoridation is simply the adjustment of fluoride that occurs naturally in water to a recommended level for preventing tooth decay.

The level of fluoride put into water (1 ppm) is up to 200 times higher than normally found in mothers' milk (0.005 – 0.01 ppm) (Ekstrand 1981; Institute of Medicine 1997). There are no benefits, only risks, for infants ingesting this heightened level of fluoride at such an early age (this is an age where susceptibility to environmental toxins is particularly high).

3.     Similar to fortifying other foods and beverages. Water that has been fluoridated is similar to fortifying salt with iodine, milk with vitamin D, orange juice with calcium and bread with folic acid.

Absolutely ridiculous! No, fluoride is not similar to fortifying food with nutritional nutrients. Vitamin D, calcium, folic acid and iodine are all considered nutrients necessary for health. Fluoride does not have that status. It is considered a toxic chemical used for rat poison.  Fluoride is not an essential nutrient (NRC 1993 and IOM 1997). No disease has ever been linked to a fluoride deficiency. Humans can have perfectly good teeth without fluoride.

Also, according to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR 1993), and other researchers (Juncos & Donadio 1972; Marier & Rose 1977 and Johnson 1979), certain subsets of the population may be particularly vulnerable to fluoride's toxic effects; these include: the elderly, diabetics and people with poor kidney function and  those who suffer from malnutrition (e.g. calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, vitamin D and iodide deficiencies and protein poor diets) (Massler & Schour 1952; Marier & Rose 1977; Lin Fa-Fu 1991; Chen 1997; Teotia 1998). Those most likely to suffer from poor nutrition are the poor, who are precisely the people being targeted by new fluoridation programs.

4.     Prevents dental disease. It is the most efficient way to prevent one of the most common childhood diseases – dental decay. An estimated 51 million school hours are lost each year due to dental-related illness. 

Gift, H.C. “Oral Health Outcomes Research: Challenges and Opportunities.” In Slade, G.D., ed., Measuring Oral Health and Quality of Life. Chapel Hill, NC: Department of Dental Ecology, University of North Carolina 1997;25-46.

No. There have been numerous recent reports of dental crises in US cities (e.g. Boston, Cincinnati, New York City) which have been fluoridated for over 20 years. There appears to be a far greater (inverse) relationship between tooth decay and income level than with water fluoride levels. Some recent studies have found that tooth decay actually increases as the fluoride concentration in the water increases (Olsson 1979; Retief 1979; Mann 1987, 1990; Steelink 1992; Teotia 1994; Grobleri 2001; Awadia 2002 and Ekanayake 2002).

5.   Protects all ages against cavities. Studies show that community water fluoridation prevents at least 25 percent of tooth decay in children and adults, even in an era with widespread availability of fluoride from other sources, such as fluoride toothpaste.

*Griffin S.O., et al. “Effectiveness of Fluoride in Preventing Caries in Adults.” J Dent Res 2007;86(5):410-415.

** Task Force on Community Preventive Services. “Promoting Oral Health: Interventions for Preventing Dental Caries, Oral and Pharyngeal Cancers, and Sports-related Craniofacial Injuries: A Report on Recommendations of the Task Force on Community Preventive Services.” MMWR 001;50(RR21):1-13. View information at thecommunityguide.org/oral/fluoridation.html and cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/rr5021a1.htm

No, extreme caution with infants and young children as required by the FDA and CDC. Fluoridation's role in the decline of tooth decay is in serious doubt. The largest survey ever conducted in the US (over 39,000 children from 84 communities) by the National Institute of Dental Research showed little difference in tooth decay among children in fluoridated and non-fluoridated communities (Hileman 1989). According to NIDR researchers, the study found an average difference of only 0.6 DMFS (Decayed Missing and Filled Surfaces) in the permanent teeth of children aged 5-17 residing in either fluoridated or unfluoridated areas (Brunelle and Carlos, 1990). This difference is less than one tooth surface! There are 128 tooth surfaces in a child's mouth. This result was not shown to be statistically significant. In a review commissioned by the Ontario government, Dr. David Locker concluded:

"The magnitude of [fluoridation's] effect is not large in absolute terms, is often not statistically significant and may not be of clinical significance" (Locker 1999).

Fluoride toothpaste is required by the FDA and CDC to print on every package- ''Warning: Keep out of the reach of children under 6 years of age. If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, seek professional assistance or contact a Poison Control Center immediately.'' The Center for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration did not back down from the immense commercial pressure to remove the warning because all the scientific studies prove fluoride is dangerous and not an essential nutrient.

6.    Safe and effective. For more than 65 years, the best available scientific evidence consistently indicates that community water fluoridation is safe and effective.

No, and no studies to prove it! Fluoride is a cumulative poison. On average, only 50% of the fluoride we ingest each day is excreted through the kidneys. The remainder accumulates in our bones, pineal gland, and other tissues. If the kidney is damaged, fluoride accumulation will increase, and with it, the likelihood of harm. Fluoride is very biologically active even at low concentrations. It interferes with hydrogen bonding (Emsley 1981) and inhibits numerous enzymes (Waldbott 1978). When complexed with aluminum, fluoride interferes with G-proteins (Bigay 1985, 1987). Such interactions give aluminum-fluoride complexes the potential to interfere with many hormonal and some neurochemical signals (Strunecka & Patocka 1999, Li 2003).Fluoride has been shown to be mutagenic, cause chromosome damage and interfere with the enzymes involved with DNA repair in a variety of cell and tissue studies (Tsutsui 1984; Caspary 1987; Kishi 1993 and Mihashi 1996). Recent studies have also found a correlation between fluoride exposure and chromosome damage in humans (Sheth 1994; Wu 1995; Meng 1997 and Joseph 2000). Fluoride forms complexes with a large number of metal ions, which include metals which are needed in the body (like calcium and magnesium) and metals (like lead and aluminum) which are toxic to the body. This can cause a variety of problems. For example, fluoride interferes with enzymes where magnesium is an important co-factor, and it can help facilitate the uptake of aluminum and lead into tissues where these metals wouldn't otherwise go (Mahaffey 1976; Allain 1996; Varner 1998).Rats fed for one year with 1 ppm fluoride in their water, using either sodium fluoride or aluminum fluoride, had morphological changes to their kidneys and brains, an increased uptake of aluminum in the brain, and the formation of beta amyloid deposits which are characteristic of Alzheimers disease (Varner 1998).

7.      Saves money. The average lifetime cost per person to fluoridate a water supply is less than the cost of one dental filling. For most cities, every $1 invested in water fluoridation saves $38 in dental treatment costs.

Griffin S.O., Jones, K., Tomar, S.L. “An Economic Evaluation of Community Water Fluoridation.” J Public Health Dent 2001;61(2):78-86.

No. The costs to human health far greatly exceed the savings. Dental fluorosis is rampant and the dental costs to cosmetically hide its effects far outweigh the miniscule $38.00 savings. The US fluoridation program has massively failed to achieve one of its key objectives, i.e. to lower dental decay rates while holding down dental fluorosis (mottled and discolored enamel), a condition known to be caused by fluoride. The goal of the early promoters of fluoridation was to limit dental fluorosis (in its mildest form) to 10% of children (NRC 1993, pp. 6-7). A major US survey has found 30% of children in optimally fluoridated areas had dental fluorosis on at least two teeth (Heller 1997), while smaller studies have found up to 80% of children impacted (Williams 1990; Lalumandier 1995 and Morgan 1998). The York Review estimates that up to 48% of children in optimally fluoridated areas worldwide have dental fluorosis in all forms and 12.5% with symptoms of aesthetic concern (McDonagh, 2000). 

Since 1950, it has been found that fluorides do little to prevent pit and fissure tooth decay, a fact that even the dental community has acknowledged (Seholle 1984; Gray 1987; PHS 1993; and Pinkham 1999). This is significant because pit and fissure tooth decay represents up to 85% of the tooth decay experienced by children today (Seholle 1984 and Gray 1987). 

8.    Recognized by more than 100 organizations. The American Dental Association (ADA) as well as the U.S. Public Health Service, the American Medical Association, the World Health Organization and more than 125 national and international organizations recognize the public health benefits of water fluoridation.

ADA Fluoridation Facts Compendium. Available at ADA.org/4378.aspx

These organizations are basing their findings on the early studies conducted in 1945 -1955 in the US, which helped to launch fluoridation. Those studies are now heavily criticized for their poor methodology and poor choice of control communities (De Stefano 1954; Sutton 1959, 1960 and 1996; Ziegelbecker 1970). According to Dr. Hubert Arnold, a statistician from the University of California at Davis, the early fluoridation trials "are especially rich in fallacies, improper design, invalid use of statistical methods, omissions of contrary data, and just plain muddleheadedness and hebetude." In 2000, the British Government’s “York Review” could give no fluoridation trial a grade A classification – despite 50 years of research (McDonagh 2000).

Some of the earliest opponents of fluoridation were biochemists and at least 14 Nobel Prize winners are among numerous scientists who have expressed their reservations about the practice of fluoridation. The recent Nobel Laureate in Medicine and Physiology, Dr. Arvid Carlsson (2000), was one of the leading opponents of fluoridation in Sweden, and part of the panel that recommended that the Swedish government reject the practice, which they did in 1971.  

Also, the US Public Health Service first endorsed fluoridation in 1950, before one single trial had been completed (McClure 1970). There are many nations throughout the world that have rejected fluoridation, especially those that have high standards of education.

9.         Availability of fluoridation continues to grow. In the United States, 73.9 percent of the population on public water systems receive fluoridated public water, or a total of 204 million people.* This is an increase of almost nine percent from 2000. The Healthy People 2020 goal is for 79.6 percent of the population on public water systems to have access to fluoridated water.**

*CDC Reference Statistics on Water Fluoridation Status, cdc.gov/fluoridation/statistics/reference_stats.htm **Healthy People 2020, healthypeople.gov/2020/topicsobjectives2020/objectiveslist.aspx?topicId=32

Goals are greatly shifting as city after city fights to reject water fluoridation. Some succeeding such as Montreal, Witchita, Portland, Vancouver, Calgary, and many other small communities seek to end or reverse public water fluoridation through organizing, educating, and empowering people to influence policy makers and provide the truth about the dangers of public water fluoridation.Other succumb when the water boards are heavy financed by ADA grants.

10.    Endorsed by the American Dental Association. One of the most widely respected sources for information regarding fluoridation and fluoride is the American Dental Association. Learn more on the ADA’s website at ADA.org/fluoride.

Really? Let’s look at this in depth! Perhaps afterwards one will not share that sense of the most respected sources of fluoridation information. Consider the ten points offered by the ADA and their extreme weakness and lack of science. Consider their past information regarding water fluoridation. Consider the fact that you should not swallow more than a pea size of fluoride toothpaste which is about equal to one large glass of water, yet it's okay to drink bathe and cook with fluoridated water. Consider that 50% of that water is absorbed into your body. Consider the fact that it is impossible to get a toxicology report from your water district regarding the fluoride added or the companies or countries providing it.  Then consider the remarkable change that came over the ADA.

The American Dental Association and the US Public Health Service rejected fluoridation up until 1931 and recognized that fluoride caused dental problems and that every effort should be made to remove such contamination from drinking water. (Fluoride the Aging Factor, p 140)

In 1943, an article in JAMA described fluoride as a poison that damaged enzyme systems even at a concentration of 1 PPM. The article showed concern about 25,000 tons of fluorine released into the atmosphere every year from the phosphate fertilizer industry, (JAMA, Sept 18, 1943) {This is the provider of the fluosilicic acid currently used for water fluoridation in the San Francisco Bay Area. It also comes from as far as China.}

Then, the following year the Journal of the American Dental Association ran another article warning that fluoridated water caused osteoporosis, goiter, and spinal disease. They stated that "the potentialities for harm far outweigh those for good." (JADA, 1 Oct 1944).

ALCOA Aluminum, mega-giant producer of aluminum, was founded by Andrew Mellon, who was also appointed Secretary of Treasury.  ALCOA funded a top research facility known as the Mellon Institute. In 1931, a Mellon Institute report by Gerald Cox suggested that 1 PPM fluoride added to drinking water would be good for the teeth. That was it. No studies, no comparisons, no data. All previous research studies had shown that fluoride was toxic. The US Public Health Service (USPHS) at that time was under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of Treasury - Andrew Mellon, who also owned ALCOA.

The USPHS sponsored some research put out by their own Dr. HT Dean, manipulating data so that it "proved" that this same figure of 1 PPM resulted in reduction of tooth decay. So now there were two studies, one by Cox and one by Dean, both funded by agencies controlled by ALCOA, both supporting this arbitrary figure of 1 PPM fluoride that should be added to the water to lower tooth decay. Next sell it to the American Medical Association and the American Dental Association.

In 1944, ALCOA hired an attorney named Oscar Ewing at a salary of $750,000 per year. That same year Ewing was appointed to the Federal Security Administration. The USPHS was a division of the Federal Security Association. So now ALCOA's attorney was in a position to control the policies of the Public Health Service.

Edward L. Bernays, described by the Washington Post as the 'original spin doctor" was responsible for evolving the pro-fluoridation propaganda and disinformation machine. How anxious he was to put his uncle's ideas and methods of persuasion into action. (Dr. Y, p143) "Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. Our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of"- Bernays, (Propaganda). Bernays maintained that a well-oiled propaganda machine could make the public believe practically anything, even the exact opposite of what had been already proven by all existing scientific research. And this is exactly what Ewing needed in the case of fluoridation.

With help from "experts" of the Manhattan Project, like Harold Hodge, New York State politicians quickly learned which side their bread was buttered on. In May of 1945, the city of Newburgh, NY was the first to "try" fluoridation. In the total absence of scientific proofs, a toxic industrial waste could be passed off on the public as a nutrient with necessary health benefits, to the eventual tune of $10 billion per year and growing.

The rest is history except the truth must emerge as it did with leaded gasoline after 40 years of research funded by the manufacturers of lead additives that financially benefitted from its addition to gasoline were found wrong and unethical!  The US banned lead in indoor paint 44 years after most of Europe. Lead was not removed from food containers until 1993.

Now is the time to remove fluosilicic acid from our public water supply! As far as the ADA’s “respect for providing water fluoridation information”- there seems to be a wide chasm between the truth and fabrication.

Healthy Teeth and Nutrition

Deficient vitamin intake can cause problems for healthy teeth.Teeth and gums move through many changes as we age and often become diseased or distressed without us knowing.Preventing disease and easing the typical effects of aging can be accomplished by ingesting the right vitamins and minerals along with caring properly for your teeth and gums.Normal metabolism, balanced cell function and reinforced health affects the whole of the body and its processes and this includes your mouth.

THE VITAMINS


Healthy teeth and gums require a balanced diet and vitamin intake, however, there are several specific vitamins that are vital to healthy teeth and gums.These are A, C and D.

Vitamins A and D are fat-soluble vitamins.This means they are stored in the liver and adipose tissue of your body and are not easily excreted.Ingesting toxic levels of these vitamins is possible so do not add these as additional supplements to your daily vitamin intake without consulting a physician.

Vitamin A has a lot to do with the healthy formation of teeth and skin.It also aids in the formation and maintenance of mucous membranes and soft tissue, not to mention good vision.Vitamin A has a precursor called beta-carotene that has antioxidant properties.Antioxidant properties aid the body in dealing with chemicals called free radicals.Free radicals cause the body, in general, to decay.Eating foods rich in beta-carotene will help your teeth stay healthy.

Vitamin D is created in the body after exposure to sunshine.It only takes ten to fifteen minutes of exposure about three times a week to get enough sunshine to produce what your body needs in the way of Vitamin D.Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption and calcium absorption is necessary to develop and maintain healthy teeth and bones.Vitamin D also maintains healthy levels of the minerals calcium and phosphorous in the blood stream.It is essential for children to get adequate Vitamin D because it helps them to form strong bones and teeth.Vitamin D is often added to milk because children need so much more of it than an adults do.

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin.It is a vitamin that should be ingested daily.Water-soluble vitamins are washed out of the body once the body has what it needs.Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, promotes healthy teeth and gums, assists the absorption of iron and maintains healthy connective tissue.If you cut or scrape your skin, Vitamin C aids in the healing of those wounds.It also is an antioxidant.

THE MINERALS

Calcium, calcium, and more calcium, everyone needs adequate calcium no mater what age they are. This mineral is intimately involved in the building of bones and teeth. What do bones have to do with teeth, you may be thinking? Plenty.Your "jawbone" is the foundation your teeth live within.  If your jawbone is not healthy the chances are your whole mouth is not healthy.

In conjunction with calcium you need adequate levels of phosphorus.These two minerals work hand-in-hand to make your bones and teeth stronger.  Magnesium, Vitamin K and other minerals are also necessary to strong teeth.

WHAT TO EAT

All bodies need vitamins to promote growth and health.Some vitamins are needed because the body cannot make them at all or makes them in insufficient amounts so food intake must supply them.

To get your Vitamin A, eat dark green and yellow fruits and vegetables, eggs, low-fat dairy products, and liver.Vitamin D is taken into the body by eating egg yolks, fatty fish (like tuna and salmon, sardines and herring), and drinking fortified milk.Getting your daily Vitamin C can be accomplished by eating citrus fruits, tomatoes, melons, berries, red peppers, green peppers, and broccoli.Proper calcium in your diet can be provided by including yogurt or other dairy products, cheese, tofu, vegetables such as broccoli and peas, beans, enriched grains as well as seeds and nuts.

WHAT NOT TO EAT

Stay away from foods that are high in calories, salt, sugar, and the wrong kinds of fat such as fast foods or processed and pre-packaged foods.Most meals that fall into this category are deficient in essential nutrients and can pack on the pounds quickly.Salt and sugar interfere with the body's metabolism by altering insulin processes and blood pressure among other destructive behaviors.Tooth decay and gum disease should be watched carefully if you fill your diet with fast foods or processed foods.The sugars included in these foods can cause tooth decay to increase rapidly.

Help the re-growth of tooth enamel

If you want to regrow tooth enamel naturally, there are a few natural remedies that may help you remineralize your teeth to improve their appearance and strength. Dental enamel is the extremely hard outer layer of the tooth. It is generally said not to regrow, though studies are now beginning to question the absolute truth of this dental claim. However, the right nutrition and supplements can help you restore the minerals that make up dental enamel, such as calcium and phosphorus, that your teeth need to be healthy and strong.

Years of use, dental infections, cavities, acidic foods, coffee, tea, cigarettes, and other irritants can damage teeth, leaving them weak and unattractive. If you can improve your oral care practices and reduce the number of destructive influences on your teeth, you can begin to restore some of your mouth's original dental health.

Natural Remedies: Supplemental calcium and phosphorus can provide the teeth with the minerals they need. Vitamin D in particular, but also vitamins C and K2 likewise encourage re-mineralization of teeth. Additionally, black walnut tincture is said to help repair dental enamel.
