One need to only look to the U.S. Public Health Service recommendation on fluoridation (July-August 2015) to see that there is no evidence that community water fluoridation causes a myriad of health issues. As the U.S. has been fluoridating water systems for 70 years, we have yet to see any evidence of these claimed ill health effects in communities that fluoridate their water. Hundreds of organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the American Public Health Association, support community water fluoridation as a proven public health intervention.. Dental disease is the most common childhood disease and is associated with diabetes, adverse pregnancy outcomes, heart disease, and lost school and work hours. Fluoridated water decreases tooth decay by nearly 25% in children and adults, and it saves communities money by reducing costs and lost work hours spent on repairing tooth ...
A new Australian study confirms that lifetime access to community water fluoridation (CWF) is associated with reduced tooth decay for adults - at least in the age groups 15 - 34 years and 35 - 44 years. The study is reported in the paper: Do et al., (2017). Effectiveness of water fluoridation in the prevention…
The Concord Board of Health believes that the overwhelming body of scientific evidence and studies show that community water fluoridation is a safe and effective public health measure to prevent tooth decay.
New scientific evidence for the effectiveness of community water fluoridation (CWF) is appearing all the time. So that is hardly news - but I just thought it worth mentioning this latest example from Korea because I get told again and again that there is no evidence to show CWF is effective in improving oral health. This…

The group calling for an end to water fluoridation in Peel and challenging the longstanding practice in court, has brought fluoride and fluorosis expert Dr. A.K. Susheela from New Delhi to speak at a public event this week and convinced regional council members to hear a presentation from the professor.. Susheela is scheduled to be keynote speaker at a public presentation Wednesday (Oct. 12) in Oakville.. The event is organized by the Concerned Residents of Peel to End Fluoridation.. The community organization is chaired by Mississauga resident Liesa Cianchino, who launched the ongoing court challenge against the region and provincial government two years ago to stop water fluoridation in Peel.. Wednesdays presentation, entitled The Harmful Effects of Fluoride on Human Health, is at Le Dome, 1173 North Service Rd., from 7:30-9:30 p.m. Tickets at the door are $20.. Thursday at 8:30 a.m., Susheela is also scheduled to speak to the Region of Peels Community Water Fluoridation Committee, which is ...
On April 16 at the annual town election the voters of Oak Bluffs will face a ballot question asking whether the fluoridation of the town water supply should continue or be discontinued. Fluoride, a naturally occurring mineral, has been added to the public water supply in Oak Bluffs continuously, for the last 24 years, since April 1991.. The usefulness (for decreasing tooth decay) as well as the safety of community water fluoridation has been proven by careful review of scientists in the United States for 70 years. In 1945 the U. S. Public Health Service adjusted the fluoride in the city of Grand Rapids, Mich., from a naturally occurring trace level to one part fluoride per million parts of water. Shortly thereafter, two other U.S. cities and one Canadian city were artificially fluoridated, with three nearby and similarly sized cities not fluoridated, in carefully controlled trials. These controlled studies of the usefulness and safety of community water fluoridation continue to this present day. ...

Community water fluoridation (herein called simply "fluoridation" or "water fluoridation") is the precise adjustment of the concentration of the essential trace element fluoride in the public water supply to protect teeth and bones. In 1945 Grand Rapids, Michigan, became the first city in the world to fluoridate its public water supply. Since then, communities throughout the United States have adopted the practice. Water fluoridation is similar to food fortification and enrichment, which encompass the addition of iodine to table salt; vitamins to fruit drinks, milk, and various kinds of pasta; and vitamins and minerals to breakfast cereals and bread. Water fluoridation is the perfect public health intervention, particularly for children. Whole towns are protected in a nondiscriminatory manner. The protection is continuous and effortless to obtain. The fluoride in the water is incorporated into the enamel of developing teeth in children below the age of 16, making their teeth more resistant to ...

Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally and it is known to strengthen the tooth enamel as well as prevent dental cavities.. Why is fluoride routinely added to public water supplies?. Almost all naturally occurring water sources contain fluoride but its level is too low to effectively prevent the teeth from decaying. Over 70 years ago, scientists began to perform tests in order to find out if adjusting the concentration of fluoride in water would enhance the general oral hygiene of the society. This project was referred to as community water fluoridation.. In the 1930s, it was noted that the severity and occurrence of tooth decay was much lower among people whose water contained higher level of natural fluoride which made other cities like Grand Rapids, Michigan to start adding fluoride to their water supply. Today, over 204 million people in the United States of America alone live in places where fluoride is added in the water supply.. ...

There are 2 comments on the hsionline.com story from Sep 24, 2012, titled Public water fluoridation is a hot issue in two large U.S. communities. In it, hsionline.com reports that: A few days ago, I told you about the Portland, Oregon, fluoride controversy. City officials claim that public water fluoridation is the only solution to the local dental crisis. So when it came time for a vote of the City Council last week, how do you suppose that went? Mayor Sam Adams said, The science is on the side of fluoridation. A recent Harvard study linked high levels of water fluoridation to lower IQ scores in children. And even the CDC admits that excess fluoride exposure causes dental discoloration or damage in about 40% of U.S. children. There s science for you.

If you are concerned about toxicity of fluoride and health risks of water fluoridation, the Fluoride Action Network has a wealth of information on the subjects in its webpages. Fluoride Action Network In August 2007 the Fluoride Action Network published a joint Statement of over 600 professionals expressing concerns about water fluoridation and calling for an end to the practice. PROFESSIONALS STATEMENT CALLING FOR AN END TO WATER FLUORIDATION ...
While another member of the Assembly suggested opponents of the measure were worried about the financial implications of fluoridation, the Review-Journal reported: "Angle said she simply does not like fluoride." Angle added she believed most fluoride used in water supplies could contain "lead, arsenic, [or] mercury.". Heres what the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has to say on the matter:. "For 65 years, community water fluoridation has been a safe and healthy way to effectively prevent tooth decay. CDC has recognized water fluoridation as one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century." ...
In a letter to JAMA Internal Medicine published earlier this year, two political scientists from the University of Chicago reported that 12% of Americans agree with the statement: "Public water fluoridation is really just a secret way for chemical companies to dump the dangerous byproducts of phosphate mines into the environment" (JAMA Int Med, May 2014, Vol. 174:5, pp. 817-818).. Perhaps more disturbing, fewer than half of respondents disagreed with the statement, which means there is an urgent need to steer people toward reliable sources of accurate information, so they can play an informed role in decision-making around this crucial aspect of the public health infrastructure.. Reliable sources of information. The CDC is an excellent place to start. The agencys "Community Water Fluoridation" frequently asked questions explain how fluoride works when added to drinking water and topical products such as toothpaste, and discusses the potential adverse effects from overexposure in clear and ...
Response: Community water fluoridation remains a controversial public health measure. There have been continued debates about both its effectiveness in the prevention of dental caries and also its safety. Previous studies have suggested that there is an association between fluoride ingestion and the incidence of hypothyroidism few population level studies have been undertaken. In April 2014 Public Health England published a monitoring report that used secondary analysis of routine health statistics to identify whether water fluoridation in England was associated with any adverse health outcomes. While hypothyroidism data is available this was not included in their monitoring report. In England approximately 10% of the population lives in areas with community fluoridation schemes and hypothyroidism prevalence can be assessed from general practice data. Tt examine whether there is a relationship - as suggested in smaller studies - we used a cross-sectional study design using secondary data to ...

Related Policies. APHA Policy Statement 97-06: Evidence-Based Dental Care1 APHA Policy Statement 2008-7: Community Water Fluoridation in the United States2. In addition to promoting fluoridated water and fluoridated toothpaste, fluoride varnish programs should be established or expanded to reach underserved populations at high-risk of tooth decay. Dental caries, commonly known as tooth decay (the process, as distinguished from the cavity, the final phase of the process), affect people of all ages. Although tooth decay can be prevented or controlled, 28% of all US children ages 2 to 5 years have dental caries in primary teeth (20% of all children in this age group have untreated caries); 54% of children ages 2 to 11 years living at less than 100% of the Federal Poverty Level have dental caries in primary teeth (33% of all children in this age group have untreated caries)3; 23% of 6 to 11year olds living at less than 100% of the Federal Poverty Level have untreated permanent tooth caries.3 In ...
Will the U.S. EPA ban water fluoridation after they have received a petition detailing the risks of water fluoridation to human health?
The campaign run by FAN and "We Are Change Colorado" has gained enough traction that Colorado public health director Larry Wolk and Gov. John Hickenlooper launched a counter-attack before the hearing. They issued a statement recommending that all communities add fluoride to water supplies.. Today about 72 percent of Coloradans on municipal systems receive water containing natural or added fluoride.. "More than 70 years of research has proven that community water fluoridation is a safe, effective and inexpensive method of improving the oral health of all Coloradans," their statement said.. Activists contend fluoride is "neurotoxic" and weakens bones. They say children are grossly over-exposed. Too much sugar, not lack of fluoride, is the problem, Connett said. They denounced government assertions that fluoride is necessary to prevent tooth decay as propaganda.. Since the 1950s, utilities have been adding fluoride - even in Denver, where raw water naturally contains fluoride. (Aurora Water does ...
An internationally recognized scientist and dental researcher, Dr. Herschel S. Horowitz was born in Detroit, Michigan and earned his DDS and MPH from the University of Michigan. He was a pioneer in clinical trials, fluoride research and prevention of oral diseases and conditions. While his primary research focus was on dental caries (tooth decay) prevention though the application of different kinds of fluoride and dental sealants he also paved the way for studies of cost-benefit and cost effectiveness and addressed key issues related to scientific research ethics. He wrote with passion and candor and had a high moral commitment to his field and the communities he served. He was a major advocate for community water fluoridation and dedicated substantial time in the United States and abroad elucidating its health benefits to a variety of audiences.. Immediately after graduating from dental school Dr. Horowitz served in the US Army in Japan as a clinical dentist. Upon his return he provided dental ...
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Dietary Reference Intakes, which is the "highest level of daily nutrient intake that is likely to pose no risk of adverse health effects" specify 10 mg/day for most people, corresponding to 10 L of fluoridated water with no risk. For infants and young children the values are smaller, ranging from 0.7 mg/d for infants to 2.2 mg/d.[44] Water and food sources of fluoride include community water fluoridation, seafood, tea, and gelatin.[45] Soluble fluoride salts, of which sodium fluoride is the most common, are toxic, and have resulted in both accidental and self-inflicted deaths from acute poisoning.[4] The lethal dose for most adult humans is estimated at 5 to 10 g (which is equivalent to 32 to 64 mg/kg elemental fluoride/kg body weight).[46][47][48] A case of a fatal poisoning of an adult with 4 grams of sodium fluoride is documented,[49] and a dose of 120 g sodium fluoride has been survived.[50] For sodium fluorosilicate (Na2SiF6), the median ...
National and International Organizations That Recognize the Public Health Benefits of Community Water Fluoridation for Preventing Dental Decay
Act your age." Did adults ever use this phrase when you were growing up? Now that youre the adult, you can decide how old you want to act. Some say age is just a number or that youre only as old as you feel. Theres some truth to these statements. But regardless of how old we are - or like to think that we are - practicing good health habits can maximize our quality of life.. As the baby boom generation enters retirement, here are some tips to promote a positive and healthy lifestyle. At Delta Dental of Iowa we coordinate and support several efforts focused on healthy aging.. Supporting Lifelong Smiles. According to the Centers for Disease Control[1], Americans are keeping their natural teeth longer, so its even more important to take care of our teeth and smile with confidence throughout our lifetime. Some baby boomers may have grown up in a time before widespread community water fluoridation and good preventive dental care were the norm.. The Delta Dental of Iowa Foundation has committed ...
June 22, 2012. A small Pennsylvania town that was in the process of ending its water fluoridation program appears to be reversing course, all because of a few local, and very vocal, residents that literally begged township supervisors to keep poisoning their water with toxic fluoride. According to the York Daily Record, a 4-1 vote by West Manheim Township supervisors to end water fluoridation has now been reversed, which means West Manheim Township could remain the only municipality in York Water Companys entire service area that fluoridates its water supply.. Typically it is city officials or government mandates that are responsible for trying to force water fluoridation on the public, while local residents are usually the ones petitioning officials not to illegally mass medicate their community with fluoride drugs. But in West Manheim Townships case, widespread local ignorance about fluorides toxicity appears to have created a situation where city officials are the ones fighting against a ...

Water fluoridation is a controversial subject in Britain, with concerns about long-term effects while others believe it will prevent tooth decay.
The Fluoride Action Network (FAN), along with a coalition of environmental and public health groups has filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in response to their denial of a petition under Section 21 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) seeking a ban on water fluoridation.. This lawsuit is an unprecedented opportunity to end the practice once and for all in the U.S., and potentially throughout the world, based on the well-documented neurotoxicity of fluoride. You may read the official complaint here. According to FANs attorney and adviser, Michael Connett: "This case will present the first time a court which will consider the neurotoxicity of fluoride and the question of whether fluoridation presents an unreasonable risk under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). And, in contrast to most other legal challenges of Agency actions, TSCA gives us the right to get the federal court to ...

People drink and use water every day. The majority of Americans are provided with high quality drinking water. About 90% of people in the U.S. get their water from a community water system versus a smaller water supply such as a household well. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency sets regulations for treating and monitoring drinking water delivered by community water systems. Currently, there are water quality standards and monitoring requirements for over 90 contaminants. Drinking water protection programs play a critical role in ensuring high quality drinking water and in protecting the publics health. Because people drink and use water every day, contaminants in drinking water have the potential to affect many people. The number of people served by a community water system varies from at least 25 people to hundreds of thousands. Community water systems in the U.S. provide among the highest quality drinking water in the world. However, some contaminants are present at low levels, and it ...

Dirty Politics takes on a different hue as the DHB pushes to contaminate the Public water supply - Minister of Health, Dr Coleman, signed into law a Regulation which exempts all chemicals containing fluoride from being considered medicines if they are delivered via the public water supply - Fluoride has recently has been classified as a neurotoxicant
Dental issues in the later half of the 20th century in America were a serious issue. Upwards of 90% of those aged 12-17 during the 1960s had at least 1 cavity in a permanent tooth. Adults fared much worse with 18 affected teeth during that same period. The United States first added fluoride in water during the 1940s in Michigan. By the 1960s more than 50 million people were part of the water fluoridation program. When we look at news about water contamination affecting whole communities, the idea that we are intentionally putting chemicals in water can sound nefarious.. Except the concept isnt all that strange. Fluoride is a naturally occurring element found in seawater, fresh water, and our food. Brewed teas, for example, can have 10 times more fluoride than a raw tomato which is already higher than many other products.. The American Dental Association writes: "dental decay is the most common chronic childhood disease with more than 16 million children suffering from untreated tooth decay in ...

Public water fluoridation is a common policy for improving dental health. Fluoride replaces the hydroxyls of hydroxyapatite, thereby improving the strength of tooth enamel, but this process can also occur in other active calcifications. This paper studies the effects of water fluoridation during the course of vascular calcification in renal disease. The effect of fluoride was studied in vitro and in vivo. Rat aortic smooth muscle cells were calcified with 2mM Pi for 5 days. Fluoride concentrations of 5-10 μM--similar to those found in people who drink fluoridated water--partially prevented calcification, death, and osteogene expression in vitro. The anticalcifying mechanism was independent of cell activity, matrix Gla protein, and fetuin A expressions, and it exhibited an IC50 of 8.7 μM fluoride. In vivo, however, fluoridation of drinking water at 1.5mg/L (concentration recommended by the WHO) and 15 mg/L dramatically increased the incipient aortic calcification observed in rats with ...
Many people are coming to realize that far from improving dental health, the fluoridation of municipal water and many store bought foods and drinks is actually detrimental to our overall health.
On 14 May, the RRC voted to remove fluoride from public water supply in the area without any consultative process with the public. The information put forward in support of the move was inaccuarate and no health professionals were invited to address the meeting. I believe the community should be entitled to have a say in their own health care ...
However this is as sensible as stating that a decrease in road mortality is solely due to seat belts or education or roadside safety infrastructure (ie. stop signs, round-abouts, traffic lights etc) or non-tolerance to substance abuse and not because of all these factors collectively. Yet, clearly, it is a range of factors that are mutually supportive to maximise road safety.. The same is true of dental health and water fluoridation.. As anti-fluoridation advocates rely upon the NSW 2007 dental health survey, we can safely assume they support its findings and even within this report, on page 27, we find that an additional 13% of children in fluoridated areas were free from dental caries compared to children from non-fluoridated areas.. Looking at data from Ireland (collected from CAPP), the same downward trend in prevalence of dental caries can been seen in fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas, however, in fluoridated areas, this rate is persistently lower than in non-fluoridated areas ...
I attach for your information two major reviews commissioned by the public health authorities in the UK and New Zealand both of which conclusively endorse fluoridation as a safe and effective policy, essential to better oral health, and which also dismiss many of the alarmist claims made by opponents of fluoridation who suggest links with medical conditions or diseases without any credible basis.. You will also find attached a document prepared by the National Cancer Control Programme on fluoridation and the effects on health as well as an important study which shows the clear health benefits arising from fluoridation in the Republic of Ireland in contrast to Northern Ireland where fluoridation has not been introduced. Finally, we have attached a document prepared by the Irish Expert Body on Fluorides and Health in response to queries raised by members of the Environment and Engineering Strategic Policy Committee, Dublin City Council in 2013.. Fluoridation has been described as one of the ...
The only real solution is to stop the archaic practice of water fluoridation in the first place. Fortunately, the Fluoride Action Network has a game plan to END water fluoridation, both in the United States and Canada. Clean, pure water is a prerequisite to optimal health. Industrial chemicals, drugs and other toxic additives really have no place in our water supplies. So, please, support the anti-fluoride movement by making a donation to the Fluoride Action Network today ...
The following letter was received by the Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research, Milwaukee Wisconsin, on 2 October 1954, from Mr. Charles Perkins, a chemist: "I have your letter of September 29 asking for further documentation regarding a statement made in my book, The Truth About Water Fluoridation, to the effect that the idea of water fluoridation was brought to England from Russia by the Russian Communist Kreminoff. "In the 1930`s, Hitler and the German Nazi`s envisioned a world to be dominated and controlled by a Nazi philosophy of pan-Germanism. The German chemists worked out a very ingenious and far-reaching plan of mass-control which was submitted to and adopted by the German General Staff. This plan was to control the population in any given area through mass medication of drinking water supplies. By this method they could control the population in whole areas, reduce population by water medication that would produce sterility in women, and so on. In this scheme of mass-control, sodium ...
The city is the largest in the country that still does not fluoridate it's water supply and the debate over the issue has sharply divided it's usually polite progressives. Citizens will go to the polls to vote on the issue Tuesday.

The debate over water fluoridation has prompted several questions from the European Parliament, from Ireland and the United Kingdom where intentional water fluoridation is still practiced. In order to obtain updated advice on the issue, the Commission considers it necessary to seek the advice of its Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks (SCHER) who should work in close collaboration with the Scientific Committee on Consumer Products (SCCP), EFSAs panel on dietetic products, nutrition and allergies (EFSA NDA) and EFSAs panel on contaminants in the food chain (EFSA CONTAM) who have previously delivered opinions on fluoride. In the preparation of this opinion, SCHER considered research articles and reviews published in peer-reviewed journals, reports from regulatory agencies and other organizations, as well as all papers submitted by different stakeholders following a public call on the internet for submission of relevant scientific information. The preliminary opinion was ...

Letter excerpt). …I was invited by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to speak before the Democratic House of Representatives in 2002, on the issue of healthcare. I was flown to Washington, and met with Rep. Earl Blumenhauer and Rep. Pelosi, because I had written a brief account of a personal healthcare crisis in my own family, which attracted their attention.. In summary, shortly after my software engineer husband and I moved into our new house with our two children, his company folded and he lost his job. Shortly thereafter, he was diagnosed with kidney stones, and we had to pay our entire college/life savings ($10,000) for his surgery. We were fortunate, of course, to be able to pay this bill at all, but my point is: I have certainly known poverty and healthcare problems, and I care deeply about health equity.. In this spirit, I am submitting to you that the recent vote by the City Council, although I am certain was seriously intended to provide health equity for lower income people who do not have ...
