ADA recommends using fluoride to poison infants as young as six months old

(NaturalNews) As millions of our readers know, we're not fans of dangerous fluoride here at Natural News. It's too bad that so many of our institutions are, however, especially because of the bad advice that they hand out to unsuspecting Americans.

Take the American Dental Association.

It's no secret that the ADA has been recommending the use of IQ-lowering fluoride for decades, but recently, the organization cast its net wider, and it is now calling on parents to begin using fluoride-filled toothpastes on their toddlers by the age of six months, according to a press release from the organization:

To fight cavities in children, the American Dental Association's (ADA) Council on Scientific Affairs (CSA) is updating its guidance to caregivers that they should brush their children's teeth with fluoride toothpaste as soon as the first tooth comes in. This new guidance expands the use of fluoride toothpaste for young children.

To help prevent children's tooth decay, the CSA recommends that caregivers use a smear of fluoride toothpaste (or an amount about the size of a grain of rice) for children younger than 3 years old and a pea-size amount of fluoride toothpaste for children 3 to 6 years old.


"For half a century, the ADA has recommended that patients use fluoride toothpaste to prevent cavities, and a review of scientific research shows that this holds true for all ages," said Edmond L. Truelove, D.D.S., chair of the Council on Scientific Affairs. "Approximately 25 percent of children have or had cavities before entering kindergarten, so it's important to provide guidance to caregivers on the appropriate use of fluoride toothpaste to help prevent their children from developing cavities."

Fluoride's history of harm

The phrase "appropriate use of fluoride" is ironic, given that even moderate fluoride ingestion has been found to be harmful. Let us count the ways:

-- Fluoride and obesity may actually be linked, according to historical research. Fluoride ingestion can reduce the function of your thyroid, which can lead to a condition known as hypothyroidism -- which can lead to weight gain [http://www.naturalnews.com].

-- The chemical has actually been linked to contributing to lower intelligence. Researchers from both Harvard University's School of Public Health and China Medical University in Shenyang, in a joint meta-analysis of 27 studies, found that there were "strong indications" that fluoride exposure, particularly among developing children, is highly problematic regarding proper cognitive development and brain formation [http://www.naturalnews.com].

-- The ingestion of fluoride has also been associated with bone cancer in boys. Britain's The Observer newspaper reported in June 2005 that a study by the Harvard School of Dental Health and British health organizations discovered a link between osteosarcoma and fluoride. "This is a very specific cancer in a defined population of children," said Richard Wiles, co-founder of the Washington, D.C.-based Environmental Working Group. "When you focus in and look for the incidence of tumors, you see the increase" [http://www.theguardian.com].

-- Research also links fluoride to brain damage. According to the activist group the Fluoride Action Network (FAN), in all, some 34 separate studies have found that, even at levels in U.S. water supplies, fluoride can harm brain development, while scores of other studies correlate fluoride to learning and memory impairment, fetal brain damage, altered neurobehavioral function and altered thyroid hormone levels. "Legislators who mandate fluoridation without carefully considering this research are doing a profound disservice to the health and welfare of their constituents," attorney Michael Connett of FAN said.

There needs to be a rethink of public policy regarding fluoride use, not more glad-handing of the issue by U.S. institutions.

"The question legislators should be asking themselves is, 'Do I wait until public health officials catch up with the scientific literature that now shows fluoride can cause serious neurological harm to children, or do I take my leadership role seriously and stop fluoridation immediately,'" said FAN Executive Director, Paul Connett, Ph.D. "I think the latter is the only ethical answer."
