Formula-fed Infants Receiving High Fluoride Burden
A new study from Ireland has added yet more reason why infants should not be given formula reconstituted with fluoridated tap water.
Breast-Feeding May Boost IQ
Children who were breast-fed exclusively for the first three months of life or longer scored nearly six points higher on IQ tests at the age of 6 than children who weren’t breast-fed exclusively, a new study has found.
The 2nd Citizens’ Conference on Fluoride: A Summary
According to Ralph Nader, “Attendance of scientists from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and three of the National Research Council’s panel members, among others, makes the Fluoride Action Network’s conference more than ordinary. The NRC’s review of the EPA’s safe drinking water standards and the Harvard study on fluoridation and osteosarcoma this past May provide contemporary material for opening the public debate further and deeper.”
Conference Highlights Fluoride Health Risks
New research indicates that fluoride damages the brain; that the chemicals used to fluoridate drinking water increase the levels of lead in children’s blood; that some humans are accumulating dangerous levels of fluoride in their blood and bone; that fluoride’s toxicity in humans is not confined to teeth and bone; and that – according to […]
An Examination of Statements by US Public Health Officials on Fluoride Toxicity: Part 1
The problem here is not simply that Kassler made a mistake. Everyone makes mistakes. The problem is that to make a mistake of this magnitude requires a breathtaking degree of ignorance, and by extension incompetence, on the subject.
An Examination of Statements by US Public Health Officials on Fluoride Toxicity: Part 2
In this bulletin, we address a statement about the alleged dose that causes skeletal fluorosis made by Colorado’s Dental Director, Dr. Diane Brunson.
An Examination of Statements by US Public Health Officials on Fluoride Toxicity: Part 3
In this bulletin, we address a statement about the alleged “toxic dose” of fluoride from Hawaii’s State Dental Director: Dr. Mark Greer.
Follow-up on Fluorosis/Tooth Decay
In response to yesterday’s bulletin, Dr. Robert Carton – the former president of EPA’s Headquarters Union in Washington D.C. – forwarded me an internal agency memo that was written in the midst of EPA’s deliberations on their Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for fluoride.
New study challenges old belief on dental fluorosis/tooth decay
A new study (1), published in the October issue of Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology, has cast yet further doubt on one of the long-standing beliefs in fluoride research. The study, which examined tooth decay and dental fluorosis rates in two areas of Ethiopia, found that as the severity of dental fluorosis increased, so too did the rate of tooth decay.
Fluoride & Oxidative Stress: Yet More Evidence
As with Dr. Guan’s team at the Karolinska Institute, Chinoy’s team found that fluoride increased the level of oxidative stress in brains of the fluoride-treated animals.
