CDC and ADA Now Advise to Avoid Using Fluoride

Story at-a-glance -

  • In 2010, a study once again found, contrary to what most people have been told, that fluoride is actually bad for your teeth. The study found increased fluorosis risk among infants fed infant formula reconstituted with fluoride-containing water, as well as for those using fluoridated toothpastes
  • The CDC responded by issuing a warning on their website to parents of infants about the risk of fluoridated water and fluorosis. However, they continue to deny the severity of the problem, calling fluorosis "cosmetic only"
  • Fluorosis can damage not only your teeth but also your bones and other tissues. It is simply more visible on your teeth
  • Countless studies have shown the damaging health effects of fluoride, from brain damage and lowered IQ, to hyperactivity to impaired thyroid function, and even cancer
  • Find out what you can do to decrease your fluoride exposure from your drinking water and foods, and how you can support the Fluoride Action Network in advocating against water fluoridation
