        There are two undeniable scientifically proven FACTS when it comes to good healthy teeth…

        1.A HEALTHY DIET,
        2.DAILY DENTAL HYGIENE

        While my kid's dentists strongly suggest FLUORIDE for my monkeys, I couldn't help wondering if it's the best way of preventing the tooth decay.

        Enforced fluoridation will not prevent tooth decay, but it will destroy an essential aspect of consumer choice over the basic resource of drinking water. And, it could have a strongly adverse effect on the health of our children as well as adults.
        Tooth decay is caused by poor dental hygiene and high consumption of refined sugar products.
        Enforced fluoridation does nothing whatsoever to address either of these problems.
        If anything, it could even be counter-productive if people neglect dental hygiene because they think fluoride in their drinking water will solve the problem for them.
        Medicating everyone on the grounds that this will, arguably, help a small percentage of the population, is simply not logical.
        It's even worse when we consider the wealth of scientific evidence that fluoride can have nasty side effects ranging from cancer to cavities in tooth enamel.
        Fluoride is, in fact, highly poisonous and the following outlines the long list of health problems associated with it, with copious scientific references.
        ...hmmm. 8'|

        What's wrong with fluoride then?

        Scientific studies have shown:

        Fluoride is implicated in genetic disorders, cancer and low IQ levels in children

        Calcium levels in the body decrease as fluoride levels rise

        Fluoride induces pitting and cavity formation on the surface of tooth enamel (cavities distinctly different from those formed as a result of dental caries)

        Blood fluoride levels rise continuously with prolonged use of fluoridated toothpaste

        People who ingest fluoride risk problems as the muscles, connective tissues and bone tissue undergo degenerative changes.

        Fluoride is a known toxin.
        It is more toxic than lead and only marginally less poisonous than arsenic

        Fluoride is described by its manufacturers' safety data as a 'hazardous waste'.
        It is illegal to dump it at sea

        The content of a family-size tube of fluoridated toothpaste are enough to kill a 12.5 kilo child

        Fluoride consumption by human beings increases the general cancer death rate

        Fluoride exposure disrupts the synthesis of collagen and leads to the breakdown of collagen in bone, tendon, muscle, skin, cartilage, lungs, kidney and trachea

        Fluoride inhibits antibody formation in the blood

        Fluorides have a disruptive effect on various tissues in the body

        Fluoride confuses the immune system and causes it to attack the body's own tissues, and increases the tumour growth rate in cancer prone individuals

        Fluoride kills red blood cells and damages gastric mucosa, resulting in the symptoms of 'Irritable Bowel Syndrome'

        Fluorides are medically categorized as protoplasmic poisons, which is why they are used to kill rodents

        Fluoride is a cumulative poison… we excrete about half what we ingest. The rest is stored, mainly in the bones, where it increases the density but changes the internal architecture of the bone. This makes bones more brittle and prone to fracture

        I am not sure if I believe all this to be the true facts but if they are, I wonder why so many dentists and the medical studies suggest us to use it?

        That is hard to believe especially because i have read that with the introduction of floride many moons ago tooth decay has went way down.

        In fact i read that bottled water is not suggested because it is bad for your teeth with no flouride added to it.

        Interesting information Nan. I don't think the researchers every really know what they are talking about!

        I already knew that there was a controversy about this but from what I know fluoride can't hurt if taken in very small doses, like through toothpaste. However, I remember that somebody had the bright idea to add it into the tap water at some point to make people's teeth healthier! I don't remember the city right now, but there was a big scandal.

          Absolutely right there Johnny and I can't remember the city either.

                    Great topic wnanhee,  I think at this point it would be very difficult to admit  that it wasn't such a great idea because it is so widespread and commonplace and so many people are affected.    I don't agree with fluoridation and buy purified water at the refill stations at the store.  ( The main reason is because I think the tap water here sucks!!!)  I do think that we should be allowed to make our own choice(s).  (The liberal in me is showing).
