Fluoride and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) Removal

What is Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)?

 

Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) is a measure of the total concentration of dissolved solids. It is essentially a measure of harmful impurities, minerals, or anything dissolved in water that is not an H2O molecule. TDS in water can come from anywhere, including natural water springs, chemicals used to treat the water supply tanks, and even from your home plumbing system.

The common types of total dissolved solids, heavy metals and their chemical names include Aluminium, Cadmium, Arsenic, Chloride/Chlorine, Copper, Fluoride, Herbicides, Iron, Lead, Sulfate, and Mercury.

Fluoride in Drinking Water

Many developed nations do not fluoridate their water. Fluoridation of tap water is banned in most developed countries such as Europe, Japan, Korea, China and Russia. In western Europe, for example, only 3% of the population consumes fluoridated water. Only 11 countries in the world have more than 50% of their population drinking fluoridated water:

  • Australia (80%)

  • Brunei (95%)

  • Chile (70%)

  • Guyana (62%)

  • Hong Kong (100%)

  • The Irish Republic (73%)

  • Malaysia (75%)

  • New Zealand (62%)

  • Singapore (100%)

  • United States (64%)

Over the past two decades many communities in Canada, the USA, Australia, and New Zealand have stopped fluoridating their water supplies. In Israel, the Minister for Health announced in April 2013 the end of mandatory water fluoridation.

 

Fluoridation of tap water is banned in most developed countries such as Europe, Japan, Korea, China and Russia. Research also shows that fluoridation can cause slower development for children and affect their IQ or cause autism.

 

Fluoride which is more toxic than Chlorine is also most difficult to remove from tap water.

 

Yet, about 95% of water purifiers in the market cannot effectively remove fluoride as their filtration pores size is bigger than 0.0001 Micron. For fluoride and Heavy Metals removal, look out for Certified Reverse Osmosis membrane (0.0001 Micron) in compliance with USA NSF ANSI 58.

Harmful Effects of Fluoride

FROM STRAITS TIME ARTICLE : 

FLUORIDE LEVELS MAY POSE RISKS TO CHILDREN

 

Dr Wuang Shy Chyi, domain lead for water technology at Temasek Polytechnic's School of Applied Science, said that due to their natural sources, mineral water can contain trace amounts of elements. While some elements such as arsenic, can be beneficial in tiny quantities, Dr Wuang notes: "Some minerals, like fluoride, may also be present in quantities that are not acceptable to certain groups of people." These include infants and young children, who already get fluoride that is added to tap water.

 

A 2012 study by the Harvard School of Public Health found that children in high-fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ scores than those who lived in low-fluoride areas.

According to a 1991 American analysis, evidence shows that male rats that were given high fluoride content to drink for two years have an increased risk for bone tumour. This type of bone tumour is known as osteosarcoma. This risk was not witnessed or seen in female rats.

 

A 2006 Harvard University study have also found that boys have an increased risk than girls in developing osteosarcoma when exposed to fluoride drinking water.

 

This has caused worry for many consumers on the dangers of drinking fluoride water. Unlike fluoride products like toothpaste and mouthwash, which aren’t ingested, drinking water comes into contact with our organs.

 

Fluoride may be present in quantities that are not acceptable to certain groups of people like infants and young children, who already get fluoride that is added to tap water (Wuang, 2017).

Slows the growth development: Fluoridation can cause slower development for children and affect their IQ or cause autism. A 2012 study by the Harvard School of Public Health found that children in high-fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ scores than those who lived in low-fluoride areas.​

 

Dental fluorosis: Dental fluorosis occurs when you consume too much fluoride while having teeth that are still encased and growing under your gums. This is particularly common for young children who are still having their baby teeth. Children are also more likely to ingest toothpaste, which is also another concentrated source of fluoride. This may result in white spots forming on the external layer of your teeth, making your teeth look less aesthetically pleasing.

Skeletal fluorosis: Skeletal fluorosis is similar to dental fluorosis, but it involves the damage of bones instead of teeth. Early symptoms may cause joint pain. Over a longer period, skeletal fluorosis may further damage the bone structure and the skeletal system.

 

May cause cancer: Evidence shows that male rats that were given high fluoride content to drink for two years have an increased risk for bone tumours. This type of bone tumour is known as osteosarcoma. This risk was not witnessed or seen in female rats (PMC, 2018). Boys also have an increased risk than girls of developing osteosarcoma when exposed to fluoride drinking water (PMC, 2011).

 

Yet, fluoride is still a common element found in Singapore’s tap water This has caused worry for many consumers on the dangers of drinking fluoride water. Unlike fluoride products like toothpaste and mouthwash which aren’t ingested, drinking water comes into contact with our organs.

Does Boiling Water Remove Fluoride?

​The short answer is no as fluoride does not evaporate or boil easily as chlorine does. This chemical element’s boiling point is much higher. Also, the volume of water decreases as it boils, increasing the concentration of fluoride in the water.

How to Remove Fluoride from Water?

Fluoride Removal Filter - Water filters can help remove fluoride effectively. Pre-filtering is a process that is known to get rid of larger particles in your water supply. Small particles of dirt, sand floating around in your water usually gets filtered out at this stage of the filtering process.

 

The most effective filtration to remove fluoride and heavy metals are through the Reverse Osmosis process, using the USA NSF ANSI 58-certified 0.0001 micron pore size water filter. Only reverse osmosis (0.0001 micron) filtration can effectively remove fluoride and most contaminants.

 

Nano filtration (0.001 Micron) does not remove fluoride.

 

If you’d like to use water purifiers to remove the fluoride in your drinking water in Singapore, about 10% water purifiers in the market can only remove more than 50% fluoride from tap water. They lack the necessary fluoride removal water filters.

 

Meanwhile, Coral Pure Natural’s water purifiers remove up to 99.9% of fluoride in the water that you consume. Our Premium 8++ water purifier can achieve up to 95% fluoride removal with 0.0001-micron filtration while our latest Premium 9 water purifier can achieve 100% fluoride removal due to our fluoride removal water filters and reverse osmosis filtration.

Are you aware that more than 90% of the water purifiers and dispensers are unable to remove fluoride nor pass this Heavy Metals test?

One of the main reasons you should get a water system is to remove the Heavy Metals in your drinking water, which can be caused by corroded water pipings, incompetent maintenance of water storage etc. These Heavy Metals damages our DNA structure, affects cognitive functions & development, induces cancer and many other acute and/ or chronic disease, taking away the quality of our life.

 

HEAVY METALS ARE also part of the TDS in water. 

 

The best way to know if your drinking water is good enough is by running electrolysis water test, recognised by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) of the US as the simplest and most efficient water quality test for the presence of Heavy Metals. A short 30-60 seconds would do the job in letting you know what your drinking water contains. 

 

For Coral Pure's filtered water, we put it to the test and we’re proud to share that test shows abundance of rich natural alkaline minerals present in the water, turning yellow during the electrolysis, while other water samples turned black, indicating presence of Heavy Metals

Coral Pure filtered water remained yellow even after 2 rounds of Electrolysis conducted!

How Coral Pure Removes TDS & Fluoride From Water

TDS can be easily removed through the Reverse Osmosis process. Reverse osmosis is a method for treating water and wastewater by applying pressure to the water to filter out salt ions. This process removes up to 98% of TDS through its 0.0001 micron membrane.

 

Filtering harmful TDS can only be achieved by USA NSF ANSI 58-certified Reverse Osmosis (RO) Filtration, but only about 5% of water purifiers in the market incorporate RO system.
