Fluoride and its dangers


  1. Instead of spreading less tooth decay across the land, fluoridation spread dental fluorosis (fluoride-discolored teeth) into every nook and cranny of America. Even though the CDC reports up to 60% of
    adolescents are afflicted with dental fluorosis, 51% of them have

    Opposite to predictions, since fluoridation began in 1945:

    1) Tooth decay crises occur in all fluoridated cities.

    2) New dental professionals were created, e.g. dental therapists.

    3) New dental schools opened.

    4) Dental expenditures went up substantially, higher than the inflation rate.

    5) Poor children’s cavities are more prevalent, severe, occur earlier and more likely to be untreated.

    6) Despite dental spending growth, 42% percent of adults and 4 million children with dental problems could not afford dental care.

    7) More states had the need to hire Dental Directors

    8) Since the Surgeon General announced a silent epidemic of tooth decay in 2000, scores of government, dental and oral health groups formed having countless meetings, symposiums, webinars and conventions including one focused on the growing tooth decay rates in toddlers because "By age 5, about 60 percent of U.S. children will have had caries at some point" according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

    9) Because the CDC's oral health group can't prove fluoridation is safe for everyone, the CDC hired public relations firms to spin data to make fluoridation more attractive than science and government reports show it to be.

    10) 52% of new recruits have oral health problems needing urgent attention that would delay overseas deployment

    US Senator Bernie Sanders, in his 2012 report, “Dental Crisis in America,” says that 9,500 new dental providers are needed to meet the country’s current oral health needs and that tooth decay is the leading cause of school absenteeism

    Meanwhile, studies show fluoride has many serious adverse side effects see http://www.FluorideAction.Net/issues/health

    Emergency rooms are flooded with people in dental pain,
    costing taxpayers millions of dollars, because 80% of dentists refuse Medicaid patients, over 130 million Americans don’t have dental insurance. Many of those with insurance can’t afford dentistry’s high out-of-pocket costs. No American is or ever was fluoride-deficient. Too many are dentist-deficient.

    Four million Americans had to get dental care in hospital emergency departments, 101 of those patients died while in there, according to the Journal of the American Dental Association
