Fluoride & Osteomalacia
One of fluoride’s most well-defined effects on bone tissue is it’s ability to increase the osteoid content of bone. Osteoid is unmineralized bone tissue. When bones have too much of it, they become soft and prone to fracture — a condition known as osteomalacia. As shown below, fluoride has repeatedly been found to cause osteomalacia, in […]
Fluoridation, Dialysis & Osteomalacia
In the 1960s and 1970s, doctors discovered that patients receiving kidney dialysis were accumulating very high levels of fluoride in their bones and blood, and that this exposure was associated with severe forms of osteomalacia, a bone-softening disease that leads to weak bones and often excruciating bone pain. Based on this discovery, dialysis units were […]
New Facts on Fluoridation
[NOTE: The first quarter of this article from SATURDAY REVIEW – which is not reproduced below – covers the findings of a 1965 paper from the journal Archives of Internal Medicine, authored by Dr. Donald Taves of the University of Rochester.
