About Fluoride

What is Water Fluoridation?

Unlike all other water treatment processes, fluoridation does not treat the water itself, but the person consuming it. It’s outdated, unnecessary, and harmful.

Sources of Fluoride

Fluoridated water is the largest source of exposure for most people, but it is not the only source of exposure to fluoride.

Health Effects of Fluoride

Fluoride is a highly toxic substance that can cause a range of adverse health effects. Certain members of the public are at particularly high risk of harm.

Evidence of Overexposure:Dental Fluorosis

Fluorosis is a defect of tooth enamel caused by too much fluoride intake during the first 8 years of life.

Thousands of Professionals Call for End to Fluoridation

A growing chorus of medical and scientific experts are warning about fluoridation. Over 4,800 have signed FAN’s Statement Against Fluoridation.
