Blood Lead Levels and Dental Caries in School-Age Children
This article should come as somewhat of a shocker to those who have always supported water flouridation. Usually, these supporters are somewhat clueless as to the form that this flouride comes in. The hydrofluorosilic acid used is unquestionably regarded as a toxin, and yet communities blindly vote to put it in the water supply. Go figure. Anyway, it is well known that this toxin increases lead uptake in the body, mainly in children. This article supports the concept that the increased lead uptake due to the “flouridated” water leads to weakened teeth and greater cavities. Sound contrary to everything you’ve heard? Welcome to reality–water flouridation is, at best, a waste of money, at worst a toxic exposure to everyone drinking it.
