Fluoride Health Alert #11

Fluorosis

As you saw in Fluoride Health Alert #9, the cavity rate is declining in countries and towns which do not fluoridate as fast or faster than in those which fluoridate.

The former number one pro-fluoride promoter in Canada, Dr. Hardy Limeback, points out that skeletal fluorosis is a debilitating condition that occurs when fluoride accumulates in bones, making them extremely weak and brittle.* And what are the earliest symptoms of skeletal fluorosis?

"Mottled and brittle teeth. In Canada we are now spending more money treating dental fluorosis than we do treating cavities. That includes my own practice."

In the U.S, the California Dental Association claims that for "every $1 spent on fluoridation, $140 is saved on dental bills."

A white fleck on a tooth is an outward signal that the person has been poisoned by fluoride which has either been ingested, applied by a dentist or swallowed in toothpaste. Please click on the site below for a letter from David Kennedy, DDS who tells about the real human and financial costs of dental fluorosis in California.

* Four published studies in the Journal of the American Medical Association indicate that hip fractures are up in fluoridated U.S. cities, when compared to non-fluoridated cities.

I know that many of you have sent in letters to the Governor supporting Dr. Kennedy's appointment to the the new Dental Board of CA (FHA #8) and have even made additional copies of the letter and sent it to friends to fax. Also many of you have sent communications to Joe Simitian and Jackie Speier to enjoin them to look at the evidence for themselves (#9). Thank you.

If you have done neither of these, won't you please take a few moments and send this information off. It is a lot easier than going to a city council meeting and sitting for hours waiting to be heard! If you need another copy of #8 or #9, please e.mail me, or call.
