The Hidden Cause of Acne: How Toxic Water Is Affecting Your Health and What You Can Do about It

We rated this book:


Adult acne is a relatively common problem in our society, but is it normal? Former military intelligence officer Melissa Gallico struggled with her own awful acne for years, trying every possible medication, changing her diet, even changing her laundry detergent, but nothing seemed to truly help. So, she applied her own investigative skills to the problem, and eventually zeroed in on an unexpected culprit: water. Or, rather, a certain chemical added to much of the water in our industrialized society–fluoride. Yes, many of us have heard of the controversy around fluoride, and whether you believe the chemical saves teeth or is a neurotoxin (or if you perhaps fall somewhere in between), it’s hard to not get fascinated by the rabbit hole Gallico uncovers in The Hidden Cause of Acne. Readers will discover more about the science and process that went into fluoridization of our water supply, as well as the many unexpected places fluoride can be found in everyday life, like pesticides used on food crops, medicines, even wine. And readers who are long-term sufferers of adult acne may well benefit from having this new information.

  1. Richard R Hudon

    Melissa Gallico clearly and convincingly identifies the use of fluoride as used in its many forms as the root cause of her acne. She surmises that most if not all chronic cases of acne in all age groups have the same cause as hers. She does a masterful job of debunking the erroneous science behind the decisions for the multitude uses of “fluoride” and the deleterious effects on human health and all biological life. Her recommendations for improving health outcomes go far beyond the pharmaceutical driven medical practices that provide no solutions for the hidden root causes of fluoride driven illnesses. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in improving their health outcomes.
