Did you know Australia is one of the few countries that uses fluoride in their drinking water. There are no proven health benefits to swallowing fluoride and there is very little research about the benefits to fluoride. Most countries in the world have chosen not to use fluoride in their water as it has been shown to be harmful to humans. There are currently no fluoride control agencies monitoring the exposure, side effects and long term health effects of fluoride world wide. Did you know that there has never been a single randomised controlled trial reported, to demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of fluoride?
Not only do we have concerns about unfiltered water due to fluoride at Garden of Vegan, but we are very conscious about the dangerous amounts of poisonous herbicides, toxic pesticides and chlorine that may also be present in our water ways.
There is a lot of misleading and conflicting information out there when it comes to water.
To avoid any chance of additional toxins and poisons from our water, we have fitted our kitchen with a state of the art reverse-osmosis water treatment system that we wash all our fresh produce with and use when cooking.
Reverse osmosis water, starts as normal tap water and goes through a carbon cartridge filter, undergoing a purification process which removes unwanted molecules and particles in the form of fluoride and sediment. It reduces 97% of all contaminants found in tap water.
