Food, Not Fluoride, Reduces Cavities
(CONTACT LETTER TO YOUR OFFICIALS INCLUDED)
Cavities occur in 66% of U.S. preschool children, and more often in the poorly nourished, according to the January 2004 Journal of the American Dental Association.
Those skipping breakfast and fruits and vegetables have more cavities, according to researchers, Dye et al.
Over sixty years ago, dental researcher Weston Price* examined various countries' inhabitants and their diets and reported that bad teeth and health are linked to poor diet.
"In their zeal to promote fluoride, dentistry, ignoring diet, may have helped create a billion-dollar toothpaste industry while enabling an appalling tooth decay national epidemic to fester and grow like the unfilled cavities in Medicaid patients who are often refused dental treatment," says lawyer Paul Beeber, President, New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation (NYSCOF).
Federal statistics back up the poor health/more tooth loss association, regardless of fluoridation levels.
For example, 87% of West Virginians drink fluoridated water; yet, they are the most toothless in the country. West Virginia is also one of the least healthy states for heart disease and diabetes, two diet-related diseases.
Conversely, in Utah, where only 2.8% of water supplies are fluoridated, residents lose the fewest teeth in the country due to decay and gum disease. Utah ranks as one of the best in state health rankings by United Health Foundation and are least likely to develop heart disease - a measure of obesity, hypertension and sedentary lifestyle. Utah is also one of four states with the lowest diabetes rate.
The Centers for Disease Control asserts that fluoridated water saves from $7 to $42 in dental care for every fluoridation dollar spent. However, after decades of water fluoridation, virtually all Americans consume a fluoridated food and/or water supply. Yet, "dental spending outpaces economic growth, continuing a trend," reports the American Dental Association.
New York State is 70% fluoridated but two very populous counties, Nassau and Suffolk (Long Island) are totally fluoridation free. In New York State 18.3%, lost 6 or more teeth due to decay or gum disease while only 16.2% of Long Islanders did.
New York City is 100% fluoridated, yet 20.9% of Brooklyn and 19.9% of Queens residents lost six or more teeth, more than non-fluoridated Long Island and partially fluoridated New York State.
Past news releases show that New York City poor children have more tooth decay than the national average.
Actually, dental crises appear in many fluoridated cities.

The meeting started with a strong pro fluoride stance form the City engineer. His lack of knowledge on chemistry of the toxic wastes used to fluoridate water could embarrass even a high school student never mind his own profession. He blatantly violated his "duty to public welfare" as... [read more]

Why Remove Fluoride From Phosphate Rock To Make Fertilizer
Here is a bit of history that illustrates why they feed us hydrofluorosilcic acid in our water. Show this to those who ask why should the authorities slow poison us! "One of the main reasons for processing the raw phosphate rock for agricultural purposes is because of the fluoride content – mainly in the form of fluorosilicates/silicon tetrafluoride. Back in the early part of the 20th century when industrial farming... [read more]
