Fluoride Action Network


The findings of a Papago Indian with the second reported case of fluorotic radiculomyopathy in the United States are presented. Neurological deficits occurring in this entity as a manifestation of spinal cord and nerve root bony compression are described. This radiculomyopathy is rare but it is of regional importance since fluorosis is endemic to Arizona. The lack of any potential skeletal or neurological hazards from water fluoridation programs for dental caries prevention is stressed.
