Benefits of Fluoride Water Testing

  1. Health Assurance: Regular testing helps maintain fluoride levels within the recommended range, preventing potential health issues associated with overexposure.

  2. Regulatory Compliance: Ensures that water suppliers meet regulatory standards and guidelines set by health authorities.

  3. Consumer Confidence: Provides peace of mind to consumers about the safety and quality of their drinking water.

  4. Preventative Action: Early detection of high fluoride levels can lead to timely corrective measures, safeguarding public health.


Harmful Effects of Excessive Fluoride

While fluoride has proven dental benefits, excessive exposure can lead to adverse health effects. Key concerns include:

  1. Dental Fluorosis: Characterized by changes in the appearance of tooth enamel, such as white spots or streaks, and in severe cases, brown stains and surface pitting.

  2. Skeletal Fluorosis: Long-term exposure to high fluoride levels can cause joint stiffness, pain, and even changes in bone structure.

  3. Neurological Effects: Some studies suggest that high fluoride exposure may impact cognitive development in children.

  4. Thyroid Function: Excess fluoride can affect thyroid function, leading to potential metabolic and hormonal imbalances.


Fluoride is commonly added to various products in an attempt to help prevent dental cavities. Here are some items that often contain added fluoride:

  1. Toothpaste: Most commercial toothpaste brands include fluoride as a primary ingredient to help strengthen tooth enamel and prevent decay.

  2. Mouthwash: Fluoride mouth rinses are available over-the-counter and by prescription to enhance dental health.

  3. Drinking Water: Many municipalities add fluoride to their public water supplies as a public health measure to reduce the incidence of dental cavities.

  4. Beverages: Any drinks made with fluoridated water, such as tea, coffee, and certain bottled beverages, may contain fluoride.

  5. Processed Foods: Foods and beverages processed with fluoridated water, including soups, sauces, and canned vegetables, can contain fluoride.

  6. Infant Formula: Some infant formulas are mixed with fluoridated water, which can contribute to fluoride intake for infants.

  7. Dental Products: Professional fluoride treatments, including gels, foams, and varnishes, are used by dentists to provide extra protection against cavities.

By being aware of these sources, consumers can make informed choices about their fluoride intake and ensure they maintain a healthy balance.





Does my body absorb fluoride and other chemicals while bathing or showering?

Yes, your body can absorb fluoride and other chemicals while bathing or showering. Here's how this occurs:

  1. Skin Absorption: Your skin can absorb chemicals present in the water. While the skin is a relatively effective barrier, certain chemicals can still penetrate through it, especially if they are small enough or if the skin barrier is compromised.

  2. Inhalation: During a hot shower, steam is produced, and you can inhale chemicals present in the water. This is particularly relevant for volatile compounds like chlorine or chloramines, which can be released into the air and breathed in.

  3. Open Wounds or Irritated Skin: If you have cuts, abrasions, or skin conditions like eczema, the absorption rate of chemicals through your skin can increase.

Fluoride Absorption: While the absorption of fluoride through the skin is generally considered minimal compared to ingestion, it is still a potential route of exposure. Fluoride in water can be absorbed through the skin, especially during prolonged contact, like taking long baths or showers.

Other Chemicals: Apart from fluoride, there are other chemicals commonly found in tap water that can be absorbed through bathing or showering:

  • Chlorine: Added to disinfect water, chlorine can be absorbed through the skin and inhaled in the form of steam.

  • Chloramines: These are formed by the reaction of chlorine with ammonia and can also be absorbed through the skin and inhaled.

  • Heavy Metals: Trace amounts of metals like lead, copper, or mercury can be present in water and absorbed through the skin.

  • Pharmaceutical Residues: Trace amounts of pharmaceuticals can sometimes be found in water supplies and may be absorbed through the skin.


Minimizing Exposure: To minimize exposure to these chemicals while bathing or showering:

  • Use a Water Filter: Install showerhead filters or whole-house water filters designed to reduce chlorine, chloramines, and other contaminants.

  • Take Shorter Showers: Reduce the time spent in the shower to lessen the duration of exposure.

  • Use Cooler Water: Hot water can open pores and increase absorption; using cooler water can help reduce this.

By being aware of these potential routes of exposure, you can take steps to reduce your contact with fluoride and other chemicals while bathing or showering.

  • How often should I repeat EMF testing?
    The frequency of EMF testing depends on your circumstances. It may be necessary to retest if you make changes to your environment or if new EMF sources are introduced.
  • Are there any health risks associated with EMF testing itself?
    EMF testing does not pose any known health risks. It is a non-invasive process that simply measures existing EMF levels in your environment.
  • What should I do if EMF levels are found to be high?
    If high EMF levels are detected, you may consider taking steps to reduce exposure. This could involve rearranging furniture, using shielding materials, or, in extreme cases, relocating.
  • What types of EMF sources are typically tested?
    EMF testing covers a range of sources, including power lines, electrical appliances, Wi-Fi routers, cell phone towers, and more.
  • Who should consider getting EMF testing?
    Anyone concerned about EMF exposure, especially those living near power lines, using electronic devices extensively, or experiencing unexplained health issues, should consider EMF testing.
  • How long does an EMF testing session take?
    The duration of an EMF testing session depends on the size of the area being tested and the complexity of the environment. It can range from a couple of hours to a full day.
  • How is EMF testing conducted?
    Trained technicians use specialized equipment to measure EMF levels. They may use meters or analyzers to assess magnetic fields, electric fields, and radiofrequency radiation.
  • Are EMF levels higher indoors or outdoors?
    EMF levels can vary significantly depending on your location. Certain indoor spaces with electronic equipment may have higher EMF levels, but outdoor sources like power lines and cell towers can also contribute to exposure.
  • What is EMF testing, and why is it important?
    EMF testing, or Electromagnetic Field testing, assesses the levels of electromagnetic radiation in your environment. It's important to ensure your exposure to EMF is within safe limits, as prolonged exposure can have potential health effects.
  • Can EMF testing help diagnose health issues?
    EMF testing can identify elevated EMF levels, but it cannot diagnose specific health issues. If you suspect health problems related to EMF exposure, consult a healthcare professional.
  • Is EMF testing necessary for everyone?
    EMF testing is not necessary for everyone. It is recommended primarily for those who have concerns about EMF exposure or who are experiencing health issues they suspect may be related to EMF.
  • What are safe EMF exposure levels?
    Safe exposure levels vary depending on the type of EMF and frequency. EMF testing helps determine if levels are within the recommended safety limits set by relevant regulatory bodies.
  • Can I conduct EMF testing myself using consumer-grade meters?
    While consumer-grade EMF meters are available, professional EMF testing is more accurate and comprehensive. Trained technicians have the knowledge and equipment to provide a thorough assessment.
  • Is EMF testing expensive?
    The cost of EMF testing varies depending on the scope of the assessment and the location. It is an investment in safety and peace of mind, and prices can vary accordingly. Our standard EMF Testing cost for a residential property is about $199
