Fluoridation May Not Prevent Cavities, Scientific Review Shows

But the scientific rationale for putting it there may be outdated, and no longer as clear-cut as was once thought. Water fluoridation, which first began in 1945 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and expanded nationwide over the years, has always been controversial. Those opposed to the process have argued—and a growing number of studies have suggested—that the chemical may present a number of health risks, for example interfering with the endocrine system and increasing the risk of impaired brain function; two studies in the last few months, for example, have linked fluoridation to ADHD and underactive thyroid.

Others argue against water fluoridation on ethical grounds, saying the process forces people to consume a substance they may not know is there—or that they’d rather avoid.

82 Percent of Patients Managed to Avoid Root Canals Using These Ancient Medicinal Herbs

This is an area where concrete information is hard to come by, but one little known study involving a carefully mixed blend of unique Tibetan herbs traditionally used to supercharge the patient’s circulation is raising eyebrows… Tens of thousands of people submit to their dentists’ advice each year and spend countless dollars on treatment for root canals each year, even though many holistic health researchers question the safety of such procedures. Root canals leave millions of harmful bacteria trapped under the tooth surface and have been linked to higher rates of heart disease, stroke, and many other serious issues, which is why I decided to go a different route than my dentist recommended.

July 25, 2012 — For years health experts have been unable to agree on whether fluoride in the drinking water may be toxic to the developing human brain.

Impact of fluoride on neurological development in children

Extremely high levels of fluoride are known to cause neurotoxicity in adults, and negative impacts on memory and learning have been reported in rodent studies, but little is known about the substance’s impact on children’s neurodevelopment. In a meta-analysis, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang for the first time combined 27 studies and found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children. Based on the findings, the authors say that this risk should not be ignored, and that more research on fluoride’s impact on the developing brain is warranted. The study was published online in Environmental Health Perspectives on July 20, 2012. * This sentence was updated on September 5, 2012.

Community water fluoridation was initiated in the USA in 1945 and is currently practised in about 25 countries around the world; health authorities consider it to be a key strategy for preventing dental caries. Given the continued interest in this topic from health professionals, policy makers and the public, it is important to update and maintain a systematic review that reflects contemporary evidence.

Top Cancer Researchers, Harvard, EPA Agree: Fluoride Causes Tumors, Lowers IQ. Top Cancer Researchers, Harvard, EPA Agree: Fluoride Causes Tumors, Lowers IQ by DR MERCOLA A recently published Harvard University meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has concluded that children who live in areas with highly fluoridated water have “significantly lower” IQ scores than those who live in low fluoride areas.

In addition, parents have been routinely encouraged to give their kids cavity-fighting fluoride treatments when they visit the dentist. Beginning in the late 1940s, aided by mass industry lead lobbying campaigns, the government encouraged municipal water authorities to add fluoride to their community’s drinking water. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), approximately 70 percent of the U.S. population ingests fluoride through their community drinking water today and they want this percentage to continue to climb.

This is in stark contrast to other developed European nations were fluoride is rarely added to drinking water – Britain provides only about 10 percent of their population with fluoridated water. Dr Joseph Phillips explains The Blotting Technique for healthier teeth and gums.
