The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued a startling report dated April 2015 that admits 2 in 5 children in America show signs of fluoride poisoning, (streaking, spotting or pitting of teeth due to dental fluorosis). The agency concluded that levels need to be lowered in municipal water supplies, reducing it to 0.7 milligrams per liter (the previous recommended upper limit was 1.2 milligrams per liter issued in 1962).
This ends over five decades of the U.S. government recommending up to 1.2 milligrams in every liter of water. But even the new lower levels are still more than enough to cause serious harm to children.
It's so rare to find any agency of the federal government actually doing anything that even resembles a good decision these days that the CDC's decision deserves some level of kudos.
Even though it doesn't end the destructive practice of poisoning the water supply with fluoride, it's a step in the right direction. But it doesn't go nearly far enough, say industry watchdogs.
"It's a good start that they've finally recognized that after 65 years they needed to lower the 'optimal' levels, it should have happened years ago." says Professor Paul Connett executive director of the Fluoride Action Network.
"The bad news is that the CDC and ADA are still trying to maintain that the only issue of concern is dental fluorosis and are trying to ignore all the other health concerns. 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."
It is unknown how many children in America and around the world have been poisoned by infant formula made with fluoridated tap water, but that number continues to grow each day that water fluoridation continues.
"All that's happening here is really a P.R. exercise to make it look as if they are addressing the public's concerns without really doing anything substantial. [They] give the message that they're going to choose a level which would allow the water fluoridation program to continue. That's a travesty of science and another example where these Washington based agencies are more interested in protecting a policy than in protecting the health of the American people.They've completely ignored all the IQ studies and the notion that fluoride damages the brain," Connett explains.
Connett isn't the only one hoping to see the CDC ban it outright. ABC News reported that Dr Griffin Cole, a dentist in Austin, Texas, said, "I still don't think it's enough, honestly," he said. "I don't think there should be fluoride in the water at all."
Fluoride is dangerous to your health - here's why...
Even though the CDC's decision still supports water fluoridation, it nevertheless sends a powerful message across the country that too much fluoride is dangerous for your health.
This should slap shut the mouths of at least some of the dentists and doctors who have been advocating this mass poisoning of our nation for the last several decades. But there's much more to this story that's not being reported anywhere else.
For the CDC to limit this to only 0.7 mg per liter rather than 1.2 mg per liter isn't exactly a huge victory as Connett explains. He believes it is actually an admission that the CDC supports the mass poisoning of the American people with a dangerous toxic chemical.
Interestingly, with this report, the CDC has decided that "too much" fluoride is bad for you, but "a smaller amount" is just fine for your health. The CDC has a moral and regulatory responsibility to ban fluoride from being dumped into municipal water supplies.
Let us hope and pray that this agency will soon rise to this moral standard and take action to protect the health of the American people rather than protecting the financial interests of the industry of conventional dentistry.
