ADA study confirms dangers of fluoridated water

ADA study confirms dangers of fluoridated water, especially for babies ... t=Abstract

Advocates of fluoridated water insist that the chemical additive is good for
teeth, but actual science routinely shows otherwise, including a new study
published in the Journal of the American Dental Association confirming fluoride
as a toxic substance that actually destroys teeth, particularly those of
developing young children and babies.

Infant formulas reconstituted with higher fluoride water can provide 100 to 200
times more fluoride than breast milk, or cow's milk.

When people are exposed to excessive levels of fluoride through sources like
drinking water, foods and beverages and even swallowed toothpaste, it often
results in a condition known as dental fluorosis. The internal uptake of
fluoride into teeth over time causes their enamel to become mottled and
discolored, the end result being damaged teeth that have essentially rotted from
the inside out.

Dr. Steven Levy, D.D.S., and his team found during their study that "fluoride
intakes during each of the first four years (of a child's life) were
individually significantly related to fluorosis on maxillary central incisors,
with the first year more important." They went on to warn that "infant formulas
reconstituted with higher fluoride water can provide 100 to 200 times more
fluoride than breast milk, or cow's milk."

In other words, young children have the highest risk of severe tooth damage from
fluoride, especially those that are six months of age or younger, a time during
which children's blood-brain barriers have not fully formed. Even low ingestion
levels cause the direct depositing of fluoride into the teeth, brain and other
bodily tissues and organs which, besides causing fluorosis, also causes
disorders of the brain and nervous system, kidneys and bones.

And the American Dental Association (ADA) has known that fluoride exposure
causes dental fluorosis since at least 2006, but the group has done nothing to
warn the 200 million Americans that live in communities with fluoridated water
to avoid its use in babies and infants. Many dentists still recommend that
children and adults not only drink fluoridated water, but even advise parents to
add fluoride drops to their children's drinking water if the family lives in
unfluoridated areas or drinks private well water.

Fluoride causes serious health problems

In 2006, a study published in The Lancet identified fluoride as "an emerging
neurotoxic substance" that causes severe brain damage. The National Research
Council (NRC) wrote that "it is apparent that fluorides have the ability to
interfere with the functions of the brain and the body by direct and indirect

About a month later, another study published in Environmental Health
Perspectives found a definitive link between fluoride intake and reduce IQ
levels, indicating once again that fluoride intake causes cognitive damage.

At Harvard University, researchers identified a link between fluoride and bone
cancer. Published 14 years after it began, the study found that the highest
rates of osteosarcoma, a fatal form of bone cancer, were occurring most in
populations drinking fluoridated water. The findings confirmed those of a prior
government study back in 1990 that involved fluoride-treated rats.

Kidney disease is another hallmark of fluoride poisoning. Multiple animal
studies have found that fluoride levels as low as 1 part per million (ppm) —
which is the amount added to most fluoridated water systems — cause kidney
damage. And a Chinese study found that children exposed to slightly higher
fluoride levels had biological markers in their blood indicative of kidney

The NRC has also found that fluoride impairs proper thyroid function and
debilitates the endocrine system. Up until the 1970s, fluoride was used in
Europe as a thyroid-suppressing medication because it lowers thyroid function.
Many experts believe that widespread hypothyroidism today is a result of
overexposure to fluoride.

Since fluoride is present in most municipal water supplies in North America, it
is absurd to even suggest that parents avoid giving it to their young children.
How are parents supposed to avoid it unless they install a whole-house reverse
osmosis water filtration system? And even if families install such a system,
fluoride is found in all sorts of food and beverages, not to mention that it is
absorbed through the skin every time people wash their hands with or take a
shower in fluoridated water. Perhaps these are some of the reasons why the ADA
has said nothing about the issue despite the findings.

There simply is no legitimate reason to fluoridate water. Doing so forcibly
medicates an entire population with a carcinogenic, chemical drug. There really
is no effective way to avoid it entirely, and nobody really knows how much is
ingested or absorbed on a daily basis because exposure is too widespread to
calculate. But political pressure and bad science have continued to justify
water fluoridation in most major cities, despite growing mountains of evidence
showing its dangers.

Ending water fluoridation is a difficult task, but concerted efforts by
citizens, local authorities, and even dentists, have resulted in some
significant victories. To learn more about fluoride, check out the Fluoride
