By drinking this water, low levels of fluoride go into the saliva, which reduces the rate of tooth decay and helps to prevent cavities as well. But is it safe?

There has been research in the United States and the United Kingdom that shows too much fluoride can be harmful to our health, and if you wish to remove it from your tap water the easiest way is by using a specific home water purification device or filter to remove the Fluoride.
