Fluoride is definitely harmful to people. The fluoride chemicals added to tap water are hydrofluorosilicic acid, sodium fluorosilicate, and sodium fluoride. These chemicals are industrial waste products that are collected from air pollution control systems. Due to the lack of processing, these chemicals are known to contain elevated levels of other contaminants, like arsenic. Fluoridated water consumption has been linked to brain damage and dental fluorosis, among other things.
In addition to fluoride, a prescription drug that was never approved as safe or effective by the FDA, many other chemicals are added to water by municipal water systems. These include substances like chlorine to disinfect the water, and limescale, to keep water from corroding pipes.
Personally, I use a Big Berkey water purifier to filter my water. It removes virtually all drugs, chemicals, pathogens, and other impurities from my drinking and cooking water. I would drink rain water, but I would run it through my filter first. I would not recommend drinking distilled water, because distillation removes minerals from water, which the water will then strip from your body. Also, atomizing chemicals like chlorine are still collected in distilled water.
Side note: These don’t have motors. They’re completely momentum/wind-powered and literally just wander around beaches unsupervised like giant abstract monsters.
these are both amazing and COMPLETELY TERRIFYING
