Urgent Bulletin: Study Shows Fluoride ‘May Not Prevent Cavities’

The Cochrane Collaboration uncovered one interesting study in particular. In 2001, a report found that amongst two adjacent British Columbia communities, one of which ceased water fluoridation and the other remained constant, the community that stopped water fluoridation actually saw rates of cavities amongst schoolchildren decrease. This study is one of many that prove fluoride has no effect, or potentially a more detrimental affect, on tooth decay in children. Read more about this ground breaking study.

U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Admits Fluoride May Harm Teeth

Fluorosis—a permanent discoloring of the teeth—is on the rise amongst teenagers, affecting a reported 41% of young boys and girls. In response to this statistic, the United States Department of Health and Human Services concedes that the fluoride content of public water should be lowered to about 0.7mg/L, a full 30% lower than the current legal threshold maintained by many communities in the U.S. Uncertain of the long-term effects, the Department of Health and Human Services says a follow-up evaluation will be conducted in 10 years to evaluate the impact the recent change has on the rate of fluorosis amongst America’s children.
