Fluoride in drinking water

Fluoride in Drinking Water

Fluoride or Fluorosilicic acid is a corrosive chemical agent, derived from toxic gases produced in the manufacture of phosphoric acid & phosphate fertilisers, why is fluoride in our drinking water.

Fluoride induced thyroid dysfunction in rats

thyroid dysfunction

To assess the roles of dietary protein (Pr) and calcium (Ca) level associated with excessive fluoride (F) intake and the impact of dietary Pr, Ca, and F on thyroid function, 144 30-day-old Wistar albino rats were randomly allotted to six groups of 24 (female:male = 1:1).

Lower intelligence in children exposed to fluoride & arsenic in water

IQ

Recent evidence suggests that fluoride (F) and arsenic (As) in drinking water may adversely affect intelligence quotient (IQ) scores. Similar results were observed for Fluoride in drinking water and Arsenic in drinking water. The data suggests that children exposed to either Fluoride or Arsenic in water have increased risks of reduced IQ scores. Rocha-Amador D.et al.,Decreased intelligence in children and exposure to fluoride and arsenic in drinking water. Cad Saude Publica. 2007;23 Suppl 4:S579-87.

Flouride linked to low IQ in children - Does the benefit outweigh the risk?

Fluoride lowers iq in children

A new study has found that the protective shield fluoride forms on teeth is up to 100 times thinner than previously believed, raising the question about whether it actually works. Fluoride changes the main mineral in tooth enamel, hydroxyapatite, into a more decay resistant material called fluorapatite, but the new research found that this fluorapatite layer is only 6 nanometers thick, meaning it would take10,000 such layers to span the width of a human hair, which has scientists questioning whether a layer so thin, which is quickly worn away by ordinary chewing, can really can protect teeth from decay at all?

Regression analysis of cancer incidence rates & water fluoride

This may indicate a complexity of mechanisms of action of fluoride in the body, especially in view of the coexising positive & negative correlations with the fluoridation index. The likelihood of fluoride acting as a genetic cause of cancer requires consideration.

Flouride do the risks outweigh the benefits

flurosis teeth

A new study has found that the protective shield fluoride forms on teeth is up to 100 times thinner than previously believed. This raises questions about how this purported cavity fighter really works. It has long been believed that fluoride changes the main mineral in tooth enamel, hydroxyapatite, into a more-decay resistant material called fluorapatite.

New research however, has found that the fluorapatite layer formed in this way is only 6 nanometers thick, meaning it would take almost 10,000 such layers to span the width of a human hai, leaving the scientists question;

"whether a layer so thin, which is quickly worn away by ordinary chewing, really can shield teeth from decay".

Another new study shows that exposure to fluoride may lower children's intelligence.

"About 28 percent of the children in the low-fluoride area scored as bright, normal or higher intelligence compared to only 8 percent in the 'high' fluoride area ... in the high-fluoride city, 15 percent had scores indicating mental retardation and only 6 percent in the low-fluoride city."
