“Children under three should never use fluoridated toothpaste. Or drink fluoridated water. And baby formula must never be made up using Toronto tap water. Never. In fluoridated areas, people should never use fluoride supplements. We tried to get them banned for children but (the dentists) wouldn’t even look at the evidence we presented.” ~ Toronto Star
Apparently, we are to poison our babies, practically from birth. That is what the US Preventative Services Task Force is telling primary care physicians throughout the country. As a ‘cavity-fighting’ measure, these ‘professionals’ are supposed to coat emerging teeth in a baby’s mouth with fluoride, painting it on as a varnish.
Why any group would be tasked with poisoning young children with fluoride when it has been proven in countless studies to cause cognitive disorders, lowered IQ, and even bone and joint disease, is anyone’s guess. Harvard recently proved that fluoride was harmful to children:
“Choi and senior author Philippe Grandjean, adjunct professor of environmental health at Harvard Sschool of Public Health, and their colleagues collated the epidemiological studies of children exposed to fluoride from drinking water. The China National Knowledge Infrastructure database also was included to locate studies published in Chinese journals. They then analyzed possible associations with IQ measures in more than 8,000 children of school age; all but one study suggested that high fluoride content in water may negatively affect cognitive development.”
Yet pediatricians and other primary care doctors are to put fluoride on baby teeth as soon as they erupt.
Dr. Michael LeFevre said, “Only one in four preschool children is seeing a dentist, but most see a primary care clinician. Primary care clinicians can play an important complementary role in helping dentists keep children’s teeth healthy.”
What kind of person recommends fluoride for treating cavities if it will cause your baby’s brain to turn into mush? And since the ‘research is inconclusive, as to just how much fluoride should be administered’ – admitted to by USPSTF, then what business do they have telling doctors to administer it at all if they don’t know what levels are ‘effective’ and what levels are ‘harmful.’
Pediatric dentist Dr. Mary Hayes and a spokesperson for the American Dental Association welcomed the help from pediatricians, family doctors and nurse practitioners:
“It’s a good thing that dentistry and medicine are working hand in hand trying to attack decay in kids’ mouths.”
The task force also asks doctors to prescribe oral fluoride to baby’s with teeth if it has not been added to their drinking water.
Fluoride is Dangerous – Especially for Children
Kids are suffering from all kinds of diseases that weren’t common just decades ago. Fluoride is definately part of the problem. Disorders such as autism, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and dyslexia have soared, and this is due in part to the use of chemicals in municipal water supplies, and exposure to industrial contaminants such as lead, methylmercury, polychlorinated biphenyls, arsenic, herbicides, pesticides, and fluoride.
Children’s bodies cannot tolerate this onslaught of chemicals. Fluoride accumulates in their tiny bodies (along with these other toxins) and causes skeletal fluorosis. It is a creeping disease that eventually makes the bones of a five year old look that those of an 108 year old woman suffering from arthritis.
What’s more – fluoride in any form — drops, tablets, or vitamins — has never been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (as required by law since 1938), and a lethal dose of NaF (an artificial fluoride) is 50 times smaller than that of CaF2 (a naturally-occurring fluoride) according to Dr. Hardy Limeback, biochemist and Professor of Dentistry, University of Toronto, former consultant to the Canadian Dental Association.
Why would mothers and fathers put a toxic waste that comes from the semiconductor and phosphate fertilizer industries in their baby’s mouths? Why would a task force be sent to tell doctors to encourage parents to do this?
“Contaminated with arsenic, lead, barium, cadmium, and mercury, no analyses of fluorosilicic acid are performed at the source, and only rudimentary analyses are performed at water treatment plants prior to their injection into public water systems. In many artificially fluoridated areas, the lead and copper content of the water exceeds EPA/Safe Drinking Water Act standards. This occurs because of the caustic nature of fluorosilicic acid and its capacity to leach copper and lead from soldered pipe joints and brass fixtures.”

The American Dental Association has obviously ingested too much fluoridated water to think straight.
