Fluoride Linked to Eye Disease, Study Shows

Fluoride contributes to degenerative eye diseases such as cataracts, age related macular degeneration (AMD) and glaucoma, reports DT Waugh in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (March 2019).

Although research has consistently shown that it is the topical application of fluoride to teeth, not the ingestion of fluoride that reduces tooth decay, you cannot avoid consuming fluoride when it’s added to public water supplies.

Tea-drinkers risk fluoride-damaged bones, studies show

Some teas contain more fluoride than EPA allows in public water supplies, which can do skeletal damage, according to research published in Environmental Pollution (Das, et al. 12/2017). It’s undisputed that excessive fluoride ingestion can cause many adverse health effects, not just to bones.

Fluoridation Uncertainty Persists, Researchers Report

While pushing through a country-wide fluoridation mandate last year, Israel’s policy-makers and public health officials ignored or denied valid evidence, produced by experts in their fields and respected science groups, showing that fluoridation science has not been settled according to researchers in the Journal of Risk Research, August 2016. The same is true of US fluoridationists.

Hidden Fluoride in Baby Food can Discolor Baby's Teeth

Babies risk dental fluorosis (discolored teeth) from unlabeled fluoride in infant foods, say researchers in the journal General Dentistry

Detectable fluoride levels, found in all 360 samples tested, is due to pesticides, fertilizers, soil, groundwater and/or fluoridated water used in processing, the researchers report.

Foods containing mechanically de-boned chicken and turkey were highest in fluoride because fluoride-saturated bone dust gets into the finished product.
