Can inorganic compounds like fluoride and chlorine be absorbed through skin and inhaled? What are your expert opinions?
Clearly supported: In 1997, the EPA concluded that a person can absorb more contaminants from bathing and showering than from drinking polluted water. Studies done by Brown, Bishop and Rowan in the early 1980s showed that an average of 64 percent of the total dose of waterborne contaminants (including fluoride) are absorbed through the skin. A study by British researchers at the Health and Safety Laboratory in Sheffield published in the February 19, 2000 issue of Human Experimental Toxicology suggests that toxicants such as fluorides can be stored in the skin and released over a period of time. The failure to account for inhalation and dermal exposures to fluorides is the most significant flaw in Fluoride research. It invalidates all dosage conclusions based solely on ingestion. Among other health hazards, Fluoride also increases your risk for cancer: ...Read more
