Federal data reveals “even low levels of water or plasma fluoride exposure was associated with increased risk of dental fluorosis [white spotted, yellow or brown splotched teeth], writes Dong, et al., reflecting 2015-2016 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) in Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety (June 2021).
US Government officials claim fluoride chemicals added to drinking water supplies (fluoridation) at 0.70 mg/L safely reduces tooth decay while minimizing dental fluorosis. But fluoridation began in 1945 assuring that only 10% of children would develop dental fluorosis – and just the mildest mostly unnoticeable form. But now it's at 70% and increased in severity
Fluorosis is found even at water fluoride levels lower than .70 mg/L,(the level gov't wants added to water) reports Dong’s team. Widespread use of fluoride toothpastes and dental treatments, not available in 1945, could be contributing, they report.
8% of Calgary (Canada) 2nd graders have fluorosis even though fluoridation stopped 10 years asgo. (Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemilogy July 2021)
Dong’s team writes: “As more and more researchers indicate that even low to moderate exposure to fluoride is related to a number of adverse health effects in children such as neurotoxicity, changes in sleep cycle, alteration of kidney and liver function…So, in order to [protect] against the adverse effects by fluoride exposure in youngsters, children should be provided with alternative sources of [fluoride-free] drinking water.”
There is no dispute that too much fluoride is a bad thing. Fluoride is also high in tea, ocean fish, grape products, is in some medicines, and virtually all foods and beverages, according to the USDA. Over-ingesting fluoride damages bones (skeletal fluorosis) and children’s developing teeth, according to the FDA. Americans are rarely taught to limit fluoride intake.
And tooth Decay is epidemic, according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
