NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ – A recently uncovered document reveals that New York City infants are fluoride overdosed and risk fluoride-damaged teeth, especially when infant formula is mixed with NYC’s fluoride-laced public water supplies, reports the New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc.
To avoid moderate dental fluorosis (fluoride-damaged teeth) the Institute of Medicine (1997) recommends 6-month-olds and younger consume only 0.01 milligrams fluoride daily.
However, a freedom-of-information obtained 1988 report “A Study of Fluoride Intake in New York State Residents,” by Featherstone reveals that NYC 6-month-olds consume unsafe levels (0.4 milligrams daily from food and beverages). Nationally, fluorosis afflicts 41% of adolescents and is rising in prevalence and severity (CDC 2010).
- Comment: sadly, the damage is not confined to fluorosis. There’s also ADHD, IQ, Thyroid and Bone issues, and after all, it’s really hydrofluorosilicic acid, a poison.
- Comment: it’s not just New York City, it’s everywhere (including Grand Rapids) fluoridated water is consumed on an unregulated basis. How much fluoride did you drink today? What will the slow but steady accumulation your body is subjected to eventually do to you?
