Evidence is pouring in. There is NO HEALTH BENEFIT to justify adding fluoride to municipal drinking water.
The COCHRANE ORGANIZATION systematically reviews primary research in human health care and health policy. It is internationally recognized as the highest standard in evidence-based health care resources. Cochrane Reviews are peer reviewed and updated regularly to incorporate new research to ensure that treatment decisions can be made on the most up-to-date and reliable evidence.
- “There is very little contemporary evidence, meeting the review’s inclusion criteria, that has evaluated the effectiveness of water fluoridation for the prevention of caries…”
- “We did not identify any evidence, meeting the review’s inclusion criteria, to determine the effectiveness of water fluoridation for preventing caries in adults.”
- “There is a significant association between dental fluorosis (of aesthetic concern or all levels of dental fluorosis) and fluoride level.”

If your city council is dumping fluoride into your municipal water system, tell them to stop. There are DANGERS to dumping fluoride in your water, especially where it affects your children. You’ll more fully appreciate the potential dangers if you take a few more minutes to read my previous Nugget on fluoride at the following link, click here: http://boom-qa.com/you-drink-a-neurotoxin-fluoride/
