Dental fluorosis from too much fluoride

I can think back to the time when I was a little kid and my mother would send me into the bathroom to brush my teeth. During that time we would use Arm and Hammer baking soda for brushing teeth. But as time went on man came up with what was considered to be a better way to get the job done and fluoride tooth paste started showing up in dental offices as well as at the market. I remember the first time that a dentist showed up at my school when I was about in the 2nd grade, he told us about the importance of brushing and being sure that we used a fluoride tooth paste. I remember running home to share with my mother what we had learned and to show her the new tooth brush and the small tube of tooth paste that we were given. I wanted to educate my mom about dental health but she just said that the baking soda worked just as well and it was cheaper than buying tooth paste for ten kids. Now all you see are different brands of fluoride tooth paste and fluoridated water everywhere. Why was what my mom taught me being replaced, is it just about sales and money or does someone else know better.

I decided to Google fluoride and see what I would find and the results were staggering. I came across information that made me feel a little scared as well as angry. Did you know that in the U.S. fluoride was only used in pesticides and rat poisons; this stuff was actually classified as a toxic waste. And now after many years of use in tooth paste and water the American Dental Association are telling parents not to give fluoridated water to babies because it can cause brain damage. Nice to know that this stuff hit the shelves before proper testing and is still there.

During my research I came across a site that is hosted by Dr.Phyllis J. Mullenix, before I share with you my findings I would like to share some of Dr. Mullenix credentials to add validity to the statements. She is a pharmacologist and toxicologist,Dr. Mullenix was Head of the Toxicology Department at the Forsyth Dental Center, this is a well known dental research institution affiliated with the Harvard Medical School. Using lab animals, a study on dental fluorosis was conducted. Putting fluoride in the drinking water of rats she expected to see no differences in behavior but she did. According to their scientific literature rats were suppose to be able to tolerate 175ppm fluoride in their drinking water; fluoride was not suppose to cross the blood brain barrier.But it did.

What does this mean:

It means that we are being exposed to levels of fluoride that we know will alter the behavior in rats. The rat study showed Dr. Mullenix the potential for " motor dysfunction, IQ deficits and/or learning disabilities in humans." She also shared information about 2 fluoride studies conducted in 1995-1996 from China showing IQ deficits in children who had been over-exposed by way of drinking water. Mindyou In my ignorance I could understand fluoride in tooth paste but why in drinking water. Our bones don't need to be fluoridated, have you ever seen a dental cavity in your bone. In other studies depression, concentration, headaches, confusion....showed up in reports involving fluoride and the central nervous system (CNS). Try Googling Codex and fluoride in drinking water and see what you come up with. I was shocked to see that fluoride was being used in infant formula, although I am not sure if it was stopped in 2007, Codex Alimentarius is still allowing it in the formula of sick children. What other effects are our bodies hiding because of the introduction of fluoride in drinking water or other liquids that we ingest. How can we continue to ignore the effects of fluoride and the CNS. We do not need fluoride in our tooth paste or our drinking water. THE CHOICE IS UP TO YOU!!!

Because dental fluorosis is considered a cosmetic effect the Federal Government is not required by law to do anything about it.
