Do you or your family have teeth that look like either of the pictures to the right? This condition is known as “dental fluorosis” and is caused by fluoride poisoning (lifetime cumulative overdose) from ingesting fluoridated water.

In addition to the cosmetic problems, “dental fluorosis” indicates accumulation of toxic levels of fluoride in the body that can lead to the following symptoms and diseases: hypothyroidism, depression, fatigue, weight gain, muscle and joint pains, increased cholesterol levels, heart disease, dementia, ADHD, bladder cancer, bone cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Lou Gehrig’s disease.

If you or anyone in your family has “dental fluorosis” or any of the above listed symptoms please report them to Joshua Strange at (707) 267-6109 or joshstrange@hotmail.com. All contacts will be kept strictly confidential. This information is part of an effort to further assess the impacts of water fluoridation on residents of Hoopa.
