Breaking away from dental school dogma, more dentists are speaking out against fluoridation because fluoride chemicals, added to NYC’s water supply intending to reduce tooth decay, are actually a money-wasting health risk, reports the New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation (NYSCOF).
 
Seven NYC Council Members sponsored legislation (1) and residents are petitioning Mayor Bloomberg to stop fluoridation, to preserve money and health. Join them: 
http://www.change.org/petitions/stop-fluoridation-in-new-york-city  Pinellas County, Florida, legislators voted out fluoridation two days ago.
 
Hydrofluosilicic acid, a lead- and arsenic-laced chemical (2) left-over from making phosphate fertilizer (3) is NYC’s fluoride chemical of choice.  Fluoridation cost NYC approximately $25 million in 2008.(4)
 
Dentist Caree Alexander, a former Navy practitioner, then a private practice dentist for 20 years, says fluoridation is “totally ineffective and actually damaging as well.”(5)
 
Dr. Alexander says, “When I graduated from University, we weren’t given any information about where [fluoride] came from. We all assumed it was [pharmaceutical-grade] calcium fluoride.” 
 
Prominent NYC dentist and Huffington Post Contributor, Dr. Thomas Connelly writes, “I do not see the good in fluoridating our drinking water...To me, the ‘bad’ it can (potentially) do outweighs the good.”(6)
 
Dr. Andrew Harms, former President, Australian Dental Association, who once supported fluoridation says, “I deeply regret this…when I did read the science about 10 years ago, I started to get serious concerns.”
 
Dr. Harms says, “To my amazement, when I tried to raise the issue with the [Australian] Dental Association, whom I thought were interested in the science and … integrity, there was no interest. In fact there was a lot of pressure against me to say anything at all. There was a great concern about upsetting our principle sponsors, the toothpaste manufacturers, who heavily compromise our University,” says Harms in a video documentary, <I style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">Firewater. (7)
 
Dentist Hardy Limeback, PhD, University of Toronto Professor and Head, Preventive Dentistry, apologized for promoting fluoridation because toxicology research shows the purported benefits no longer outweigh the risks.(8)
 
Dentist Bill Osmunson, Fluoride Action Network spokesperson, promoted fluoridation for 25 years until his patients persuaded him to read the science, “It [was] like a knee in the gut,” he says. “Science has turned against fluoridation and we must stop adding fluoride to water.”(9)
 
Dentist David Kennedy, International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), past president and Fluoride Information Officer, says “Water fluoridation delivers a drug to infants at a level which would be gross malpractice if prescribed by a physician or dentist.” (10)  IAOMT is a network of dental, medical and research professionals which supports the effort to inform consumers about health risks from water fluoridation. 
 
Over 3790 professionals, including 324 dentists, signed a statement opposing water fluoridation. See statement:
http://www.fluoridealert.org/professionals-statement.aspx
 
Attorney Paul Beeber, NYSCOF President says, “The National Research Council reported that fluoride, even at levels used for fluoridation, can damage bones and teeth, disrupt thyroid function, be harmful to kidney patients and that studies linking fluoride to lowered IQ and cancer are plausible.” 
 
Dentist Jennifer Luke, PhD, says “My [published] work showed that fluoride accumulates in the human pineal gland and lowers melatonin production in animals. I find it extraordinary that no government promoting fluoridation has chosen to pursue these worrying findings.”(11)
 
Dentist and Doctor of Medical Science, Elise Bassin, published unrefuted scientific evidence showing that fluoride can increase the risk of osteosarcoma (a type of bone cancer) in boys and young men.(12)
 
About 250 communities have stopped fluoridation in recent years.(13)
 
“All New York State communities should stop fluoridation as soon as possible,” says Beeber.
