Armfield & Spencer (2004): Consumption of Nonpublic water: Implications for Children’s Caries Experience
In this 2004 study by pro-fluoridation researchers in Australia, children with lifetime exposure to fluoridated water had no reduction in tooth decay of the permanent teeth when compared to children who had never lived in fluoridated communities.
No Link Found Between (Low-Fluoride) Bottled Water and Tooth Decay
Over the past decade, there has been a steady drumbeat of press warning of the risks from drinking bottled water. The idea — kept alive by press releases from dental associations — is that because most bottled waters have low levels of fluoride, people switching from tap water (which is usually fluoridated) to bottled water will not receive a […]
Fluoride Content of Bottled Water
As with other fresh water supplies (e.g., spring water, lake water, river water), bottled waters have low levels of fluoride. Fresh surface water contains an average of just 0.05 ppm. To put this in perspective, artificially fluoridated water (using industrial-grade fluoride chemicals) contains 0.7 to 1.2 ppm fluoride, which is 14 to 24 times more than the […]
