All-star NFL Quarterback Warns Against Fluoride


Sorry Rams Fans, but the Patriot’s quarterback knows what it takes to win.  And fluoride-free water is one of his advantages; so instead of getting mad, campaign to remove fluoride from L.A.’s drinking water.

Tom Brady, the star veteran quarterback of the New England Patriots and now 6-time Super Bowl winner, has recently authored a book on staying healthy in which he mentions fluoride in water.

In chapter seven of his new book (The TB12 Method: How to Achieve A Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance), while discussing the importance of hydration, Brady acknowledges the risks of ingesting fluoride, advising readers to remove it from tap water by filtration.

He writes, “Tap water is water that comes from a municipal source. Depending on where you live, most sources of tap water contain fluoride, chlorine, and, in some cases, lead. Excessive amounts of both fluoride and chlorine have now been linked to a number of health risks. Drink tap water only if you filter it first, which gets rid of many impurities. Even when you use tap water for steaming vegetables, it’s better to filter it first.” [page 208]

Additional quotes from Brady on health:

-“Our bodies become toxic when we ingest toxic chemicals.” [page 224]

-“I chose to eat organic foods.” [page 218]

-“Whenever the media claims any of the dietary methods that I pursue are new age or even quackery, I tell them that some of the biggest advertisers on television and in the stadiums I played in are marketing all the wrong things.” [page 224]

-“Let food be thy medicine.” [page 219]
