Effects of fluoride

Austin-City-Council-Fluoridation-June2015-Slide-5   “If liquid concentrate or powdered infant formula is the primary source of nutrition, it can be mixed with water that is fluoride free or contains low levels of fluoride to reduce the risk of fluorosis,” said the ADA in 2006. Griffin Cole made it clear that fluoride is “not a nutrient” but rather a hazardous chemical that’s damaging our communities’ youth. Human breast milk contains very low levels of fluoride, about 0.004 parts per million, compared to the 0.7 ppm thats normally present in tap water. Hydrofluorosilicic acid is not naturally occurring but rather is industrial waste that’s a byproduct of the phosphate fertilizer industry. Thousands of peer-reviewed studies dating back to the 1930s link fluoride to hyperthyroidism, arthritic symptoms, bone fracture, lower IQs and dental and skeletal fluorosis in children.
