Federal data reveals "even low levels of water or plasma fluoride exposure was associated with increased risk of dental fluorosis [white spotted, yellow or brown splotched teeth]," writes Dong, et al., reflecting 2015-2016 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) in Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety (June 2021)
US Government officials claim fluoride chemicals added to drinking water supplies (fluoridation) at 0.70 mg/L safely reduces tooth decay while minimizing dental fluorosis. But fluoridation began in 1945 assuring that only 10% of children would develop dental fluorosis – and just the mildest mostly unnoticeable form. Over the decades, dental fluorosis increased in severity and incidence. Now it's at 70% and found even at water fluoride levels lower than .70 mg/L, reports Dong's team. Widespread use of fluoride toothpastes and dental treatments, not available in 1945, could be contributing, they report.
