Did you know, that Australia is one of the few countries in the world that uses fluoride in their drinking water?
There are no proven health benefits to swallowing fluoride, and there is very little research done on the effects fluoride has on your health. Most other Western countries have chosen to not use fluoride in their water, as there is sufficient evidence to show fluoride to be harmful to humans. In Australia, there are currently no fluoride control agencies monitoring the exposure, side effects and long term health effects of fluoride. Did you know that there has never been a single randomised controlled trial reported, to demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of fluoride?
It's amazing to think that we use this industrial waste from the aluminium industry to add to our town water supply. At Garden Of Vegan, not only do we have concerns about unfiltered water due to fluoride, but we are very conscious about the dangerous amounts of poisonous herbicides, toxic pesticides and chlorine that may also be present in the water ways that also find their way to our tap water.
There is a lot of misleading and conflicting information out there when it comes to water. So in the spirit of putting the best foot forward, and to avoid any chance of consuming additional toxins and poisons from our water, we have installed in our kitchen a state of the art 7-stage water filtration and treatment system. For every ingredient we use in all our meals, we will only wash, prepare and cook all our produce in pure filtered water.
