Fluoride – good or bad. It’s an ongoing debate, but exactly what are the objections.
Fluoride is one of our planet’s natural minerals that supposedly builds healthy teeth and prevents cavities, and so authorities have deemed it wise to add it to drinking water and toothpaste. The question is, does it work? New scientific research seem to indicate otherwise.
The Cochrane Collaboration, a group of doctors and researchers known as the gold standard in comprehensive health reviews recently decided to chip in on this contentious issue. They sifted, reviewed and analyzed some of the most comprehensive, well-designed and reliable papers on fluoride research available on the www.
The final outcome was that they could find no proof that fluoridation contributes significantly to healthy teeth or cavity reduction, whether in grownups or babies.
Extensive studies done by the National Research Council (NRC) in 2006 uncovered even more serious issues and reported that “it is apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain.” They also expressed concern about fluoride’s possible contribution to dementia.
Not to be outdone researchers at Harvard published a “meta-analysis” in July of 2012 that 26 out of 27 studies revealed that fluoride exposure was associated with reduced IQ in children.
In March 2014, the prestigious medical journal The Lancet published a review stating that fluoride is a developmental neurotoxin that can damage the developing brain and cause disorders such as autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, learning disabilities and other cognitive impairments. The harm is often untreatable and permanent. The report also noted that “Fluoride seems to fit in with lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain drain”
Another little known fact is that fluoride has long been used in insect and rodent poisons. Until recent fluoride was only linked to dental health but recent research shows it can affect the bones, brain, thyroid gland, pineal gland and even blood sugar levels.
In the good old USA, where fluoridation is an official policy of the U.S. Public Health Service, it’s reported that 40 percent of American teens have mottled discoloured teeth, a condition known as fluorosis and is caused the by long-term ingestion of fluoride during the time permanent teeth are being formed.
Research done by Dr. Weston A. Price found that native tribes who were eating their traditional diet had nearly perfect teeth and almost 100 percent free of tooth decay even though they did not have toothbrushes, floss, toothpaste etc.
When these tribes were however introduced to sugar and white flour their perfect teeth, rapidly deteriorated. Latest research shows that your diet has the biggest impact on the health of your teeth. The simple act of limiting sugar and processed foods will ensure that your teeth and gums stay healthy and cavity-free naturally.
