And what does the CDC say is “excessive amounts of fluoride”?
Well, it gets tricky. A supplement of 0.25 mg fluoride or more per day should not be given to infants due to increased risk of developing dental fluorosis, which is undesirable. Fluoride toothpaste should not be used on toddlers or young children because they may swallow 0.25 mg or more of fluoride, causing dental fluorosis, which is undesirable. Tap water or bottled water that contains more fluoride than 0.3 mg/L used to reconstitute infant formula powder as sole source of infant nutrition may provide 0.25 mg or more of fluoride, which may increase risk of dental fluorosis, which is undesirable. Parents/caregivers whose tap water is artificially fluoridated or naturally high in fluoride should consult with dentist or pediatrician and make an informed choice regarding the risk (dental fluorosis, which is undesirable) to their child.
However, the CDC says 0.7 ppm fluoride in public water artificially achieved with the addition of unregulated and unapproved industrial chemicals, is “optimal”. Fluoridation at 0.7 ppm is not a risk to children or anyone even though it provides a “supplement” of about .7 mg of fluoride per day to an average bottle fed infant; and very mild/mild cosmetic dental fluorosis is not a “risk” but “expected” from water fluoridation, justified, and perhaps even desirable.
So, the CDC’s position is clear: 0.25 mg per day from purified, regulated and approved-for-purposes-claimed NaF in pill, drop, bottled water or toothpaste is BAD and dental fluorosis caused by this is BAD. But 0.7 mg/day from AWF from contaminated FSA never approved for human use or ingestion is GOOD and dental fluorosis caused by this is EXPECTED and not a risk.
And if you want to use democracy to correct this, you’re out of luck. The CDC is owned and run by the producers of fluoride pollution and fluoride drugs, the final arbiters with supreme power to suppress all evidence, control scientific inquiry, muzzle victims and deny human suffering, way beyond the reach of petition, vote, Senate, Congress or President. Except maybe if Ron Paul wins Super Tuesday. Yeah.
CDC Reveals Fluoridation Risks
Excerpts: There are some downsides of fluoridation, even according to the CDC.
According to the CDC, children under age 8 and younger exposed to excessive amounts of fluoride have an increased chance of developing pits in the tooth enamel. Excessive consumption of fluoride over a lifetime may increase the likelihood of bone fractures, and may lead to pain and tenderness of the bone, a condition called skeletal fluorosis. According to the EPA, it is likely that some children 8 and younger are exposed to too much fluoride, at least occasionally while their teeth are forming, because of their high fluid intake relative to their body weight and/or because of high natural levels of fluoride in their local drinking water.
