babyformula 220x137 Water Fluoridation Persists Despite Being Unhealthy for Infants

Recently, the Senate has taken up an issue that may actually benefit the general public – this time specifically, it’s regarding the mass medication that is omnipresent in everyone’s water supply, sodium fluoride. The largest state legislature in the US recently passed a bill that requires all water bills to warn parents with infants of the dangers revolving around fluoride and water fluoridation- but only associated with infancy and excluding just about everyone else, to no great surprise.

Fluoride Exposure to Infants is Unhealthy, Water Fluoridation Persists

The warning reads as follows:

“Your public water supply is fluoridated. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, if your child under the age of 6 months is exclusively consuming infant formula reconstituted with fluoridated water, there may be an increased chance of dental fluorosis. Consult your child’s health care provider for more information.”

The primary cause for this action is because of a heightened risk of dental fluorosis in children –  basically a fluoride overdose. What they don’t tell you is that the ‘medication’ also affects the many other organ compositions in your body, not just your teeth, and not just for infants. Generally the CDC will support water fluoridation but this action warning in particular strikes a chord with the agency, forcing it to admit that fluoridated water mixed with baby formula is dangerous for the teeth which are supposed to be developing.

The CDC’s website suggests that:

“Recent evidence suggests that mixing powdered or liquid infant formula concentrate with fluoridated water on a regular basis may increase the chance of a child developing … enamel fluorosis [...] in children younger than 8 years of age, combined fluoride exposure from all sources – water, food, toothpaste, mouth rinse, or other products – contributes to enamel fluorosis.”

This may be a step in the right direction, and thankfully New Hampshire is leading the charge with their recent mandate. Soon enough other states will take the reins into their own hands and change their own water fluoridation rules – at least that is the prevailing idea.

If you didn’t already know, there is a compiled list of facts that everyone should know about the so-called medication that everybody – infants and adults alike – are taking part of:

  • Since infants rely primarily on liquid foods and are very small in size, they receive the highest doses of fluoride if bottle-fed. Fluoride exposure could be as much as 175 more for a baby fed formula compared to a breast-fed baby.
  • Fluoride is not required by any bodily process.
  • Water fluoridation can not replace adequate nutrition or lack of access to dental care, and therefore is not a sound solution in general.
  • Water fluoridation is a violation of your individual right to informed consent to medication.
  • The chemicals used to fluoridate water supplies are largely hazardous by-products of the fertilizer industry and have never been required to undergo randomized clinical trials for safety or effectiveness by any regulatory agency in the world.
  • Vitamin D rises above fluoride as a solution on how to prevent cavities.
  • Fluoride for purposes of reducing tooth decay is classified as an “unapproved drug” by the FDA.
  • Ingesting fluoride has been found to damage soft tissues (brain, kidneys, and endocrine system), as well as teeth (dental fluorosis) and bones (skeletal fluorosis).

From around the web:

    If using a product that needs to be reconstituted, parents and caregivers should consider using water that has no or low levels of fluoride.crystal meanings

  • Fluoride Free Florid

    Topical applications may be fine but everyone should reconsider ingesting it through the tap water. Approximately 75% of Florida residents are being forced to ingest fluorosilicic acid by the municipal governments. The FDA has approved 3 fluoride compounds to be used in toothpaste but has NEVER approved of the toxic waste (fluorosilicic acid) that they are polluting our drinking water with.

    Please join us in our effort to stop the practice of putting toxic chemicals in our tap water.

    You know why they're doing this NOW? Because they want to add statins to the water. Statins and fluoride together are damn near lethal (in certain percentages or quantities or whatever you want to call it) and they certainly can't go that far, so they must eliminate one. The one to eliminate is the one that DOESN'T bring in billions of dollars every year for bigPhrma. It's not about our safety or even the safety of a baby, because the babies are the ones they want on statins. If you think I'm kidding, do some research and you'll find it absolutely true. Start the kids on statins as babies and they'll be "healthier" (you know, they don't NEED all that cholesterol because it's dangerous)!! Except that cholesterol is extremely necessary for baby brains and baby eyes and baby nerves, but nevermind all that.

    This is the mindset of our medical industrial complex. Total insanity.

    It's a start, I guess. Hopefully it will lead at least somebody to wake up and research this poison.

  • Jon Carlson

    Read all about the conspiracy against America since, since water was fluoridated. Not an accident. Not ignorance.

    I would not even call it a "medication" since when is a hazardous, waste product that is MORE toxic than lead considered a medication? Let's call it what it is, poision.

    Jwillie6 said it quite well. The fluoride we are being subjected to is not the natural form, calcium fluoride, but an artificial chemical compound sodium fluoride.

    It has obviously been proven decades ago that this stuff is toxic yet people are still consuming it thinking that it is just a swell thing for the teeth but it is not.

    People think that fluoride was the reason dental health improved but what really improved overall dental health was educating children on dental hygiene. You know, brushing, flossing and cutting way back on sugary stuff and having at least a yearly visit to the dentist helps greatly too.

    Also fluoride also damages the digestive flora in the intestinal tract as well. Nasty stuff which is why I try to use distilled water for all my cooking and drinking needs.

    We don't need the fluoride and shouldn't be forced to consume it. If you want it then you can ingest it yourself but don't demand that the rest of us be forced to take it too. We have enough pollutants and toxins to deal with as it stands.

    Are you sure what is in the water is sodium fluoride? In ireland it is hydro fluorosilicic acid. a chemical soup waste product,. It contains Lead, Mercury, Arsenic and Radioactive materials A product that is not save to take orally.

    There is a big scandal, one day soon it will show itself in all its ugliness.

    It is not even new news, a discovery of late, amazingly many people know about it vaguely and certainly our politicians, government knows about it. Fine gael promised to clear it up, many Td’s campaigned, many organisations tried to campaign against it, Transition students demonstrated against it, private people like me wrote many letters to ministers, to no avail.

    98% of Europe voted against it, and many other country’s outside the European Union did the same.

    This year we again pay 5000000 to poison the water supply with Fluoride

    A chemical soup of waste product : hydro fluorosilicic acid . It contains Lead, Mercury, Arsenic and Radioactive materials A product that is not save to take orally, a product that is a poison in our body and should not be given to us as “mass medication” one dose fits all, in our water supply.

    The water supply that makes de baby’s milk, our tea and cheese and is the same water dosed with the same fluoride that is used to water the cows,

    The same water that runs in our drains with a product that is highly poisoned for the environment and highly corrosive to our pipes.

    By bringing it in to the country as a cosmetic it bypasses a lot of regulations.

    Many studies have been done on the fluoridation of water, books have been written , and it is very easy to find out its origin, a waste product of the fertilizer industry , the contents Lead, Mercury, Arsenic and Radioactive materials.

    Why we should not consume it , and all the diseases connected to it like:

    A long list of studies on cancer, how it effects your teeth, the white spots on your teeth are a sign of to much fluoride in your whole body!

    This is the scandal, Our government is not there to protect this country and its people! Our government willingly knowingly pay 5000000 eu to Spain to poison a lot of people, and make us pay for bad water you would surely not give to a baby in its bottle, drinking ourselves to death. Eventually this hydro fluorosilicic acid will make us all sick, if 50% of young people have dental fluoroses ,

    I hope many people will go and have a look on the internet to find out for themselves the real story, and tell your friends and family, or write a letter.

    Another update on the fluoridation of our water supply that might finally make you decide to act on this problem.

    Your not dealing with a benign substance, there is much to much risk and to little benefit says Dr.William Hirzy, vice president of the EPA Union.

    Who is responsible, who is the doctor making sure we are not getting to much?

    In the you tube dvd I sent you it shows how over 2000 medical, scientific, and environmental professionals are calling for an end to water fluoridation worldwide.

    Water fluoridation is the dispensing of a drug, a way of delivering a medicine, this is not chlorine or any of the other chemicals that are used to treat the water

    to make it save! ( Brent foster Oregan Sierra club)

    There is absolutely no drug on the market that is given in a one dose fits all situation (Dr. Phyllis Mullenix, Pharmacologist/ Toxicologist).

    Even if you have a fix dose of a drug, the individual responds differently to one and the same dose, in this case you have it in the water and people drinking different amounts of water so you have big variations in the consumption (Dr. Arvid Carlsson, Nobel laureate in medicine).

    Again, who is the doctor making sure we are not getting to much?

    The problem is a obvious one of consent, a basic of medical ethics ( Earl Baldwin, British House of Lords).

    Fluoride is not made to be ingested!

    If you look at the world health organization data base, for 12 year olds, the tooth decade is coming down in the non fluoridated European country's as it has

    been coming down in American fluoridated areas. There is no difference!

    The ADA; "if using a product that needs to be reconstituted, parents and caregivers should consider using water that has no or low levels of fluoride."

    Nature has found a way to keep fluoride away from infants (breast milk) and we are circumventing that ( Dr. Vyvyan Howard, Fetal Patho- Toxicologist)

    I think parents should know that fluoride is a extremely active chemical if it comes into our body, affecting brain development (Dr. Paul Connett, Environmental Chemist) . Young kids, especially, the blood brain area is not fully developed and when they drink a formula with fluoridated water they are

    getting to much into their developing brain (Dr.William Hirzy, vice president of the EPA Union.)

    We are at the moment looking for a way to bring a case against the fluoridation of the water supply to court, after 12 years of research and writing to our

    government and receiving many broken promises and a lot of misinformation back, We can see no other way.

    If you did not receive the DVD in my last e-mail, this is the place to look it up on

    you tube, I recommend you take time to watch it:

    People should not be forced to consume a drug against their will. It's time to retire fluoridation because it doesn't work, wastes money and is harmful to health. Drinking it to prevent tooth decay is like drinking sunscreen to prevent sunburn.

    Fluoride is neither a nutrient nor essential for healthy teeth. It is one of the most poisonous substances on Earth. No adult has ever walked out of their doctor's office with a prescriptlion for the fluoride drug because the body has no known use for it. The industrial toxic waste fluoride used (Hexafluorosilicic acid) cures nothing and heals nothing and has never been tested or approved by FDA (in the USA) as safe and effective for human ingestion. This chemical will burn through concrete, and if a worker put his hand in it, he would quicky die.

    The company CEO would be arrested immediately if they dumped their toxic waste fluoride into a river. The only way they can do it legally is to run it through the community drinking water system first. It is an absolute insane condition.
