Remember just do what you can when you can, and that is about a thousand times more than most people do on anything!!!!

...we¹re going to need thousands of signatures to make an effective impression, so PLEASE help spread the word by emailing the petition to as many friends and like-minded groups as possible.

It is simple, it is quick and it is really important!

Infants & Fluoride: New Warning from Dentists

EWG: In a little-noticed but dramatic turnaround, the nation's leading fluoride advocate, The American Dental Association (ADA), issued an alert on Nov 9th urging parents to avoid fluoridated water when reconstituting infant formula.

Dentists are worried that fluoride exposure at this age will permanently damage teeth, not protect them. A growing body of research also links fluoride to weakened bones, reduced thyroid activity, and possibly bone cancer in boys.

The advice, however, has gone largely unheeded. Nursery Water, the nation's leading fluoridated water for babies, still markets its product nationwide at Wal-Mart and other major retailers.

Dental Association Says Fluoride in Water Mottles Babies' Teeth


Ask Wal-Mart to Stop Selling Fluoride "Nursery Water" to Infants

On November 9th, 2006, the American Dental Association (ADA) issued an alert advising parents to avoid fluoridated water when reconstituting infant formula. ADA's advice, however, has been mostly ignored by the media.

Nursery Water, the nation's leading fluoridated water for babies, still markets its product nationwide at Wal-Mart and other major retailers.

Help us stop this unsafe practice by signing this online petition to Wal-Mart.

Dear Mr. Degn,

We are writing to bring to your attention a recent health advisory from the American Dental Association (ADA) that raises serious health concerns about the safety of a product ‹ Nursery Water ‹ currently being sold at Wal-Marts across the country, and to request that, in line with this ADA advisory, Wal-Mart stop the sale of this product immediately.

Nursery Water is a form of fluoridated bottled water that is specifically marketed for babies. The product's packaging advises parents to use Nursery Water to reconstitute infant formula and other infant foods. Recent scientific developments, however, have raised concerns about the safety of fluoridated water for infants.

Citing a major 2006 review of fluoride safety by the National Academy of Sciences, the ADA advised parents and caregivers on November 9th of this year, to not give infants fluoridated water in their formula or food. According to the ADA, consumption of fluoridated water puts a baby at high risk for dental fluorosis (a defect of teeth that causes staining and sometimes corrosion of the enamel.) The ADA's statement followed an October 14th decision from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that bottled waters with added fluoride cannot claim to reduce the risk of cavities for infants.

This advice is all the more striking as the ADA is the nation's leading advocate of water fluoridation. We are concerned, nonetheless, that without further action on the part of retailers and consumer organizations, the public will not be made sufficiently aware of this important change in health recommendations and will continue to put their babies at risk by using this product as currently directed on the label.

We understand that removing a product from your shelves is a significant action but in this case it is clearly justified given that the nation's leading dental authority advises against the precise intended use of the product. We appreciate the leadership role that Wal-Mart has taken on a broad range of environmental and consumer health issues, and we look forward to your removal of this unsafe product from your stores

Subject: Re: Nursery water - Digging a deeper hole

About a month ago I went onto Nursery Water's website and they referenced "Ask Dr. Sears" in their fluoride statement regarding their product, "Nursery for Infants". I went onto that website, and on the "fluoride" page one of the statements under "Using Fluoride Supplements Safely" is: Breastfed babies do not need additional supplies of fluoride. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that fluoride supplements not be given to infants younger than six months of age because of the concern about fluorosis in this age group.

So how can the makers of Nursery Water, with any conscience, put fluoride in the water and market it to infants?! Even the AAP's "recommended supplementation chart" on that page concerns only infants and children 6 months of age and older, implying that infants younger than that should receive no fluoride. To me, this directly contradicts Larry Yost's statement below, "Fluoride, in a concentration of 0.7 parts per million (ppm), is the minimum level of fluoride needed in water without additional fluoride supplementation." It's certainly not the level needed for infants under 6 months!

I wrote Nursery Water and asked them about the AAP's recommendation that infants not receive fluoride and my concerns about the fluoride in Nursery Water for Infants and never got a response. I don't see how they can continue to logically defend their product, although based on the response below they continue to do so.

Perhaps a letter from a lawyer pointing out some of the inherent safety issues with their product might get their attention.

Today Crystal Harvey (hooray) from Arkansas received this letter from Larry Yost (where have I heard that name before?) Any thoughts on our response to this before I circulate it as a bulletin?


DS Waters, LP

Dear Ms. Harvey,

Your comments regarding the safety of fluoride in our Nursery Water is something we take quite seriously. As a supplier of bottled water. We would not ever knowingly distribute a harmful product. Consequently, the level of fluoride in our Nursery Water, or other fluoridated water products, do not pose any negative health effects.

The fact is, despite a few vocal, non-science based fluoride-opponents, fluoride supplementation in water is and has been supported by groups and panels of expert scientists, physicians and dentists in America. Fluoridation of the water supply has been heralded as one of the greatest public health advances of twentieth century America.

Nursery Water is specifically formulated for infants and young children and uses distilled water as its base. Fluoride, in a concentration of 0.7 parts per million (ppm), is the minimum level of fluoride needed in water without additional fluoride supplementation. This follows guidelines set by the American Academy of Pediatrics, Committtee on Nutrition, Pediatrics, 1986. Fluoride is added to help strengthen developing teeth. Nursery water also complies with FDA Standard of Quality for Bottled Water as designated in the Code of Federal Regulation.

In the United States, the optimum concentration for fluoride in the water has been established in the range of 0.7 to 1.2 parts per million. Most community drinking water supplies have fluoride added at a level of 1.00 parts per million. As stated previously, the concentration of 0.7 ppm fluoride in Nursery Water is below the concentration found in most municipal drinking water. This lower level (0.7) reduces exposure to fluoride for infants who may ingest higher levels of fluoride from their diet. You may be surprised to learn that some grape juice has fluoride content as high as 1.7 parts per million, according to a report by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and even at that level, the CDC has issued no health concerns.

The effectiveness of water fluoridation has been documented for than 50 years, and a 15-year landmark study study has determined that children who consumed fluoridated water from birth had 50 to 63 percent less tooth decay than children who consumed non-fluoridated water.

We hope this puts your mind at rest about Nursery Water and that like the families who use this product daily with their infants without any health concerns, you can have confidence in our product.

Readers' Comments

Fluoride is a naturally occuring element and is safe and effective when used in the correct amounts. Anything can be toxic to the body in the wrong quanties. Water can kill if too much is ingested. 100 Oxygen will kill a person if given over a long enough period of time. I urged people to get all of the facts before making a decision about anything. Half truths do nothing to benefit anyone

I have a hugh amount of "science based" studies. These studies prove what has been known since the 1920's. Flouride is highly toxic, and has been used to forcibly medicate Americans. I highly recommend people search the MSDS on 'Flouride'. To knowing poison infants is the epitomy of evil and sinister. The company that marketys Nursery water is intending to fulfill the New World Order's eugenics plan.

would like to know if giving a baby nursery water if it can cause the babies teeth to be a different color! I know of a baby that has been giving this from the start and he is now almost nine months.(Have you heard of any other people that have said anything as to the color of the baby's teeth or do you have any pictures to share.) Thanks
