VLA COMMENT-CD RE: FLUORIDE: There may be a miniscule amount of natural fluoride that exists in the soils and is released just like other minerals. I wonder FLUORIDE being less toxic in its natural state than the much more reactive state that is in the fluoride compounds added to water. I have only seen positive effects from people drinking Fiji water – the benefits of getting rid of the aluminum are so great, and I see it as a time/toxicity equation. That a 3-6 month intensive course of Fiji water to lower the body burden of aluminum is of such benefit, that it does not need to be consumed forever to reap benefits, and there are other likely ways to protect against any miniscule fluoride exposure (like taking vitamin c and other antioxidants) that it is worth consuming it if aluminum toxicity is suspected. Our studies show that ALL people with a level of greater than 1mcg/g of dry brain weight have pathology that is associated with Alzheimer’s, or autism (depending on the age) and no brains examined with these levels were healthy. All healthy brains had less than 1 mcg of aluminum per gram of dry brain weight. It is not debatable anymore.
In addition, people with the aggressive form of MS excreted far more aluminum in their urine than healthy people, and when their aluminum body burden was reduced by drinking silica rich mineral water, they did not have any progression of their disease. The study was not designed to measure improvement in their condition, but we would have likely seen improvement if the study was designed with that outcome. A facebook group has formed called Fiji Water Detox and Epilepsy support Group and parents are reporting that their children are stopping or drastically reducing the number of seizures per day when consuming Fiji water (sometimes the kids had hundreds of seizures a day which stopped overnight when they started drinking Fiji). The benefits far outweigh any risks, and getting the aluminum out should be the highest priority for anyone dealing with a chronic, complex, inflammatory health problem.
