Oftentimes it seems like we are the lone heretic ranting and raving about the toxic dangers entering in our food and water. Last spring, we published an article about the hidden dangers that occur when Fluoride is added to our drinking water. If you missed the article, click here to read it.
Well, on Friday, Jan 7th, federal health officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finally admitted that American’s are getting too much fluoride, and for the first time in nearly 50 years, reduced the recommended level from 1.2 parts per million to 0.7. That’s a reduction of nearly 50%!
While we applaud the Fed’s decision to lower the recommended levels, the only acceptable level of fluoride in our drinking water is no fluoride at all!
Read today’s article, watch the highly informative video and then take the next step to protect your family with the purest water on the planet right in your kitchen.
U.S. says too much fluoride in water
January 7, 2011, Associated Press
By Mike Stobbe
ATLANTA (AP) — Fluoride in drinking water, credited with dramatically cutting cavities and tooth decay, may now be too much of a good thing. Getting too much of it causes spots on some kids’ teeth.
A reported increase in the spotting problem is one reason the federal government will announce Friday it plans to lower the recommended levels for fluoride in water supplies, the first such change in nearly 50 years.
About 2 out of 5 adolescents have tooth streaking or spottiness because of too much fluoride, a surprising government study found recently. In some extreme cases, teeth can even be pitted by the mineral, though many cases are so mild only dentists notice it.
Health officials note that most communities have fluoride in their water supplies, and toothpaste has it too. Some kids are even given fluoride supplements.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is announcing a proposal to change the recommended fluoride level to 0.7 milligrams per liter of water. And the Environmental Protection Agency will review whether the maximum cutoff of 4 milligrams per liter is too high. The standard since 1962 has been a range of 0.7 to 1.2 milligrams per liter.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the splotchy tooth condition, fluorosis, is unexpectedly common in kids ages 12 through 15. And it appears to have grown much more common since the 1980s.
Fluoride is Still Poison!
This action by the CDC is a step in the right direction, but it doesn’t go far enough in my opinion – or that of industry watchdogs like Fluoride Action Network at www.fluoridealert.org.
Professor Paul Connett, Executive Director of Fluoride Action Network said in an interview with NaturalNews:
“It’s a good start that they’ve finally recognized that after 65 years they needed to lower the ‘optimal’ level of fluoride. It should have happened years ago. The bad news is that the CDC and ADA are still trying to maintain that the only issue of concern is dental fluorosis [while] they are trying to ignore all the other health concerns.”
Professor Connett went on to say, “If they were really serious about reducing dental fluorosis, they would stop fluoridated water altogether. But short of that, if they were really serious, then the next best thing would be to warn parents in fluoridated communities not to use fluoridated tap water to make baby formula. That’s the most practical thing to do.”

- Mother’s breast milk contains less than 0.005 parts per million of fluoride, while infant formulas typically contain fluoride at 1.0 parts per million – that’s 200 times greater!
- A 2006 review in The Lancet describes fluoride as “an emerging neurotoxic substance” that may damage the developing brain.
- Fluoride is known to interfere with basic functions of nerve cells in your brain.
- The National Research Council has identified fluoride as an “endocrine disrupter” that may impair thyroid function.
- Research from Harvard University has found a possible connection between fluoride and bone cancer.
- According to Professor Connett, over 23 human studies and 100 animal studies link fluoride to brain damage.
