Dental Fluorosis or Skeletal Fluorosis

Dental fluorosis is a common disorder, characterized by hypomineralization of tooth enamel caused by ingestion of excessive fluoride during enamel formation. Skeletal fluorosis is a bone disease caused by excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones. In advanced cases, skeletal fluorosis causes painful damage to bones and joints.
  • osteosarcoma

    Our exploratory analysis found an association between fluoride exposure in drinking water during childhood & the incidence of osteosarcoma among males but not consistently among females. Further research is required to confirm or refute this observation.

  • A natural construction of ceramic & charcoal, removing up to 99% of bacteria & suspended solids (including microplastics & heavy metals), bad taste and odours. Bone charcoal has a high calcium content naturally displacing fluoride.

  • top view water filter 76x130

    Gravity fed eco water filters provide healthy, clean, safe & great tasting drinking water from tap, well, river & rain supplies, retaining the healthy minerals. Doesn't use electricity, constructed of stainless steel, avoiding the use of plastics where possible. Costs from 2€ a week (less than a cup of coffee) or 3c p/ltr. Make the change from plastic water bottles or plastic construction Britta type filters.

  • Dental fluorosis

    Significantly more mottling was found in the optimal fluoride area, according to both indices, although the TF index demonstrated the difference more clearly. The social class had no effect on the prevalence of mottling in the optimal fluoride area. A total of 600 children aged 8-10 years, in three groups of 200 each, formed the study group.

  • 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."

  • 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?

  • toxic toothpaste fluoride

    The new recommendations based on topical rather than systemic fluoride application are better for preventive, toxicological, psychological and didactic reasons and should be implemented as soon as possible.

  • 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 Poison

    Hexaflourosilicic acid is a toxic & corrosive industrial waste by-product derived from the scrubbings of the factory chimneys of the super-phosphate fertiliser industry, why is this fluoride being added to our water?

  • 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).

  • Fluoride Medicating the masses

    What is fluoride & where does it come from?. Water fluoridation is a controversial technique whereby fluoride is added to the public water supply because of the purported dental health benefits.

  • Fluorosilicic acid is the most corrosive chemical agent known to man. It is derived from toxic gases produced in the manufacture of phosphoric acid & phosphate fertilisers. Ireland is one of the only countries in Europe to fluoridate it’s water supply. 98% of Europe either stopped, rejected or banned it. 

  • Sunil Gupta

    The issues related to fluoridation of water or fortification of toothpaste with compounds of fluorides are controversial. Fluoride is stored mainly in the bones, where it increases the density and changes the internal architecture, makes it osteoporotic and more prone to fractures.

  • 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.

  • hypothyroid

    Hypothyroidism is caused by insufficient production of thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland. Cretinism is a form of hypothyroidism found in infants.

  • Kidney stones

    Kidney stones (ureterolithiasis) result from stones or renal calculi in the ureter. The stones are solid concretions or calculi (crystal aggregations) formed in the kidneys from dissolved urinary minerals.

  • Obesity is an issue of health. Excess weight in terms of complementary medicine is seen as an excess condition of toxicity that needs to be eliminated. If you don't believe me carry around a ten-kilo bag of potatoes for a day and you will soon realise the strain this places on your heart.

  • 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.

  • flurosis

    Endemic skeletal fluorosis is a chronic metabolic bone & joint disease caused by ingesting large amounts of fluoride either through water or rarely from foods of endemic areas. Fluoride is a cumulative toxin which can alter accretion & resorption of bone tissue. It also affects the homeostasis of bone mineral metabolism.
