'The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is now cracking down on fluoride levels and has set a new legal limit for the neurotoxin in bottled water. The previous standard allowed manufacturers to add .8 to 1.7 milligrams of fluoride per liter. The FDA’s new regulation will cap fluoride levels at .7 milligrams per liter. While the new regulation is a step in the right direction for protecting human health, it does not erase the fact that the FDA endorses the deliberate poisoning of bottled water in the first place.
This regulation does not apply to naturally-occurring fluoride in water sources. The FDA’s new regulation addresses imported and domestically packaged water that is intentionally spiked with fluoride. If fluoride consumption adversely affects childhood growth and intelligence, as documented by Harvard, then why does the FDA approve the addition of fluoride to the water that children and pregnant women drink? Instead of endorsing such an unhealthy practice, the FDA should try and stop companies from selling water with added fluoride and pull all these products from store shelves.
Science continues to prove that fluoride causes dental issues and neurotoxicity
Many scientists and environmental organizations agree that the FDA’s new legal limit for added fluoride is still too high for safe consumption. Christopher Neurath, the research director for the American Environmental Health Studies Project, conducted a study that showed the dark side of fluoride. When children consume too much fluoride while their teeth are developing, white patches may appear on their teeth. This condition is called dental fluorosis. Neurath’s new study found significant signs of dental fluorosis in 65 percent of the adolescents studied in the past decade. Nearly half of these cases showed “moderate to severe dental fluorosis.” According to Neurath’s studies, the FDA’s fluoride reduction efforts will do very little in combating dental fluorosis caused by intentional fluoridization of water supplies.'
