Did the Federal Government Just Admit that Fluoride Damages Teeth?

Water Flouridation NukeAlex Pietrowski, Staff Writer

In response to a 4 year-old public proposal and 19,000 accompanying signatures from concerned Americans, the federal government has apparently decided to lower the recommended amount of fluoride added to public drinking water. For the last 50 years or so, our benefactors in Washington have advocated dosing the American public with sodium-fluoride as a public health initiative, ostensibly to reduce dental cavities.

With a recent public announcement, the government changed these dated recommendations and in the process essentially admitted that the science behind public water fluoridation is wrong, or perhaps even non-existent. Yet, instead of recalling or ending public water fluoridation, they merely tweaked the recommended dosage, which is makes absolutely no sense if the argument for fluoridation is supposed scientific in any way.

“Since 1962, the government has been advising water systems to add fluoride to a level of 0.7 parts per million for warmer climates, where people drink more water, to 1.2 parts per million in cooler areas. The new standard is 0.7 everywhere.” [Source]

The reasoning behind the change is just as unscientific as the justification for public fluoridation was in the first place. The government says that too many people in areas with public water fluoridation are contracting dental fluorosis, an unsightly decay of the enamel of the teeth caused directly by exposure to fluoride. The government notes that because of the prevalence of fluoride in so many other consumable products, we might not need so much in our water after all to protect our teeth…. at least in cooler climates, that is.

There was, of course, no mention of what impact the recent anomalies in the national weather are having on our thirst, and therefore by proxy, the amount of toxic fluoride we drink.

The dangers of ingesting fluoride are commonly known and well-documented, yet for some reason, the government has been unable to acknowledging or react to this truth, even though grass roots anti-fluoridation activists have been successful in recent years of removing fluoride from public water supplies in some major metropolitan areas. Concerned scientists, doctors and activists have for years known that fluoride does not actually prevent cavities, but that instead, it actually causes serious health problems including dental fluorosis, possibly cancer, it lowers IQ, and more. In fact, fluoride is classified as a pollutant, and there is no such thing as a disease caused by fluoride deficiency.

Fluoride is toxic at relatively small levels, as can be seen by the warning labels on most mainstream toothpaste brands. A pea sized amount of fluoridated toothpaste is enough to kill a small child, yet the federal government recommends adding it to drinking water. Also found in soaps, salt, mouthwash, and other products, fluoride is recommended by the American Dental Association as an important medicine in good dental health, and dentists have for decades been giving chewable fluoride and fluoride dental washes to children.

Fluoride is considered to be a medicine, yet unlike every other medicine, there is no attempt to ensure that proper dosages apply to the individual patient. If all public water is fluoridated and a child has a thirsty day, they simply consume more fluoride than is safely acceptable.

Fluoridation of public water is medication without consent and is to be considered a crime against humanity. It should be abolished entirely and immediately and those in the public who still feel that they’re teeth are in need of fluoride should get some from the pharmacy if they like.

It is simply not possible that fluoride can be both good for your teeth and bad for your teeth.

    It’s a sad commentary on the world when I have to pay to have clean water.

      Whoops, clean “pure” water. peace

  • Dear Dylan,

    Your comments are set up backwards allowing your first commenter to enjoy the first position in perpetuity. Please, reverse the order to give all comments the chance to be read. Thanks, Al Smith.

    • Al, I think I finally found the button to make this happen. Should be good to go now. Thanks for your persistence.


  • Again, like all articles about “fluoridation,” this one fails to mention the most diabolical and dangerous aspect of it. They don’t only add sodium fluoride which is a man-made class 1 poison (rat poison). They add fluorosilicic acid, a toxic waste cocktail from the smoke stacks of (now mostly Chinese) fertilizer plants, containing about 23% rat poison, LEAD, MERCURY, ARSENIC, CADMIUM, BARIUM, and POLONIUM. Most of these poisons are also carcinogens, with the latter three being known radioactive carcinogens. This is how they keep the cancer industry healthy!

  • Our children are being used by the government as guinea pigs in this ongoing experiment called fluoridation. Yesterday, 1.2 mg/L was safe. Today it isn’t. How many years did they know that before deciding to inform us. When fluoridation began, it was planned to only cause 10% of children to have very mild fluorosis (white flecks on teeth). Now up to 60% of adolescents have fluorosis – 3% of it is moderate/severe (yellow, brown and/or pitted teeth)

    HHS wrote in “Public Health” about lowering water fluoride levels “Following broad implementation of the new recommendation [0.7 mg/L] enhanced surveillance during the next decade will detect changes the prevalence and severity of dental caries and of dental fluorosis that is very mild or greater, nationally and for selected sociodemographic groups.”

    So we’ll find out in ten years if 0.7 mg/L fluoride works or not.

    However, fluorosis should not ever be the endpoint of fluoride poisoning. For example, we know know that fluoride accumulates in the brain, thyroid, kidneys, bones, etc. Over 40 studies link fluoride to lower IQ. The EPA lists fluoride as a neurotoxiin. The precautionary principle dictates that fluoridation be ended immediately all over the country.

    There is no dispute between those for and against fluoridation that too much fluoride is a bad thing. The concentration of fluoride in the water supply does not equate to an individual’s dose. Some people drink lots of water such as athletes, military, outdoor workers, dieters, diabetics, etc..

    Further what the HHS still doesn’t broadcast, in the hopes that it doesn’t hurt fluoridation, is the admission, buried down low in their report, that routinely mixing infant formula with fluoridated water (even at 0.7 mg/L) puts babies at unnecessary risk of developing dental fluorosis/

    Fluoride is neither a nutrient nor essential for healthy teeth. Consuming a fluoride-free diet does not cause tooth decay. Like all drugs, fluoride has adverse drug effects see http://www.FluorideAction.Net/issues/health

    This proves that the water supply should never be used to deliver a drug to an entire population and dosed based on thirst and not age, health, weight and need. The good news for dentists is that the government has handed them a new lucrative market – covering up those discolored teeth so that dentists can continue to ignore low-income folks. 80% of dentists refuse Medicaid patients. Organized dentistry lobbied to have dental benefits removed from Medicare and over 100 million Americans don’t have dental insurance.

    Modern science says that adding fluoride chemicals into Americans on public water supplies is ineffective at reducing tooth decay, harmful to health, unethical and a waste of money http://fluoridealert.org/researchers/professionals-statement/text/

    Artificially fluoridating water should end. It’s already caused way more damage than was ever expected.
