The Effects of Fluoridation

The Effects of Fluoridation

A lot of research has been done into the potentially harmful effects of fluoridation and we’ve provided some articles that show what it may be capable of doing. Today we’re spotlighting an older albeit still highly relevant press release talking about some reports published in the American Journal of Public Health.

The reports suggest that fluoridation may not be doing much in helping children with their oral health as disparities between children from different economic statuses becomes more apparent. Back in the 1940s, fluoridation was predicted to only cause dental fluorosis (which teeth flecks) in about ten percent of people. However, when the press release was published, reports showed more than fifty percent of adolescents were dealing with severe cases of fluorosis.

Also mentioned in the press release is some Journal of the American Dental Association research showing over sixty percent of poor children between the ages of six to eight and twelve to fifteen were dealing with primary and permanent teeth cavities, respectively.
