Fluoride Safety?

“Dangerous Fluoride,” from the CBS affiliate in Atlanta, Georgia at

Neither the ADA nor the CDC could provide answers to the CBS news team. They cannot deny that fluoridation increases the risk of dental fluorosis – a problem in the United States. Their own figures show that at least 32% of American children suffer from this condition. Moreover, even though they have advised that fluoridated tap water should not be used to make up baby formula, they have not taken aggressive steps to get this message out to parents. Nor are they warning vulnerable sub-groups of the population that they are more vulnerable to fluorosis than others.  I have seen statistics of how Americans dental health has gone up…along with every other country that does NOT fluoridate their tap water.  It appears that dental health has gone up because of frequency of brushing and understanding the causes of tooth decay.
