ADA Study Confirms Dangers of Fluoridated Water

A new study published in the Journal of the American Dental Association confirms fluoride as a toxic substance that actually destroys teeth, particularly those of developing young children and babies.

Natural News reports:
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."

Of course, if you would have been reading Murray Rothbard, you would have known about the fluoride scam decades ago. He was warning us all in 1993!

And Rothbard nailed what was behind the push to put fluoride in the water.
There is an instructive lesson in this little saga, a lesson how and why the Welfare State came to America. It came as an alliance of three major forces: ideological social democrats, ambitious technocratic bureaucrats, and Big Businessmen seeking privileges from the State. In the fluoridation saga, we might call the whole process "ALCOA-socialism." The Welfare State redounds to the welfare not of most of society but of these particular venal and exploitative groups.



  1. Don't forget that General Ripper warned us about the evils of fluoridation as well. Was HE ever laughed at...

    In the Recommendations for Using Fluoride to Prevent and Control Dental Caries in the United States, CDC, August 17, 2001: "The laboratory and epidemiologic research that has led to the better understanding of how fluoride prevents dental caries (tooth decay) indicates that fluoride's predominant effect is posteruptive and topical and that the effect depends on fluoride being in the right amount in the right place at the right time. Fluoride works primarily after teeth have erupted, especially when small amounts are maintained constantly in the mouth, specifically in dental plaque and saliva." Thus, swallowing fluoridated water has no benefits in regard to tooth decay.

    Swallowing fluoride can lead to a condition known as enamel fluorosis or mottled teeth. Again from the same CDC report: "Fluoride ingested during tooth development can also result in a range of visually detectable changes in enamel opacity." Thus, swallowing fluoride may cause the body to produce less enamel that protects the teeth.

    1. I am an advocate of removing Fluoride from all public water supplies. However your interpretations of this CDC report are incorrect.

      If you read this report you will see they constantly recommend fluoride in water as safe and effective, and they do say swallowing it is beneficial.

      Also, the statement "... result in a range visually detectable changes in enamel opacity" do not equate to your conclusion "... swallowing fluoride may cause the body to produce less enamel that protects the teeth.". The opacity, or the level of transparency of the enamel is not a result of less enamel, and in fact opacity is reduced often due to thicker layers of a translucent substance, however in this case it is referring to the condition of permanent brown stains on the teeth due to dental fluorsis.

      Uncontrolled dosage of a toxic substance through medicating public water supplies is criminal, regardless of the efficacy of this medication, therefore we have to be cautious in our criticisms to insure 100% accuracy in our statements or suffer losing the trust of those we are trying to convince.

  3. Bob - Any insight into how Rothbard removed the stuff from his water?

  4. If it does this to teeth, I wonder if other parts of the body are affected? Bones, for instance.

  5. The postings above ignore the CRUCIAL difference between the extent of harm from either fluorosilicic acid (H2SiF6) or sodium silicofluoride (Na2SiF6) -- used for over 90% of artificial water fluoridation in the U.S. These compounds leave silicate residues that increase absorption of lead from environmental exposures & inhibit acetylcholinesterase (as demonstrated by Westendorf). These neurotoxic effects reduce function of dopamine (a key neurotransmitter in learning and behavioral inhibition). Where silicofluorides are used in water fluoridation, extensive studies by Coplan&Masters show there are higher blood lead levels and increases in violent crime, substance abuse, and learning deficits.
