The Ohio Department of Health's school-based fluoride mouthrinse program will be reinstated for the upcoming school year.
In the 2008-2009 school year, about 39,000 students from 150 elementary schools across the state participated in the program, which targets communities without sufficiently fluoridated water.
Prior to 1945 fluoride was considered a toxic waste that caused many law suits due to its improper disposal. It is the waste product of chemical fertilizers and aluminum processing. Fluoride is more toxic than lead and slightly less toxic than arsenic. Fluoride builds up in your body, in the bones. An excess of fluoride in the system can cause damage to the immune system, contribute to calcification of soft tissues, worsen arthritis and cause dental fluorosis in children, which is unsightly white, yellow or brown spots found on teeth.
Flouride is a poison
There are poison labels on every bag of flouride shipped in
Prior to 1945 fluoride was considered a toxic waste that caused many law suits due to its improper disposal.
Over ninety years ago, in 1908, Dr. Frederick S. McKay started his first investigations in Colorado Springs which involved examination and charting of the teeth of 2,945 local school children. Over the years, Dr. McKay personally authored over 40 papers regarding the cause of 'Colorado Brown Stain' (mottling) and the benefits of fluoride.
In 1935 to 1936 Dr. Trendley Dean was appointed by the United States Public Health Service (USPHS) to study fluoridated areas. He compared the populations of Colorado Springs and Pueblo to other cities and concluded in 1936 that water which contained one ppm fluoride cause mottling in its 'very mildest form' in ten per cent of the population. If the water contained 2.5 ppm fluoride, 75 to 80 per cent had mottling. Thus, he concluded, by keeping the fluoride content of the water at 1.5 ppm or less, mottling was unlikely to occur.

There is also evidence that fluoride can cause cancer and increase hip fractures.
According to generally accepted scientific knowledge, the ingestion of optimally fluoridated water does not have an adverse effect on bone health. Exposure to fluoride at levels considered optimal for the prevention of dental decay appears to have no significant impact on bone mineral density.
An excess of fluoride in the system can cause...
Many communities that fluoridate their water have amounts that could cause 3rd stage Crippling Skeletal Fluorosis
Common causes of fluorosis include inhalation of fluoride dusts/fumes by workers in industry, use of coal as an indoor fuel source (a common practice in China), consumption of fluoride from drinking water (naturally occurring levels of fluoride in excess of the CDC recommended safe levels), and consumption of fluoride from the drinking of tea, particularly brick tea.
Symptomatic skeletal fluorosis is almost unknown in the U.S., with about a dozen cases reported.
The FDA admits that there are no properly done double-blind studies that show that fluoride treatments are helpful
I found were, most dentists don’t take the time to study this topic
So why do dentists continue to push this??
Damage done to children’s teeth can require more cosmetic type dentistry and this is a big money maker for them.
And neither do the administrators at the Environmental Protection Agency, the ones who set the standards for drinking water. While fluoride is equal in toxicity to both lead and arsenic, the EPA s Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for fluoride is 4000 parts per billion (ppb) compared to 15 ppb for lead and 10 ppb for arsenic. It gets worse. Since its creation in 1972, the EPA has consistently ignored the mounting evidence against fluoridation, even raising the MCL from 2000 ppb to 4000 ppb in 1985 after a PHS panel of experts recommended much lower doses because of their concerns about fluoride's effects on the bones of children, on the heart, on dental fluorosis, and for the overall lack of scientific data. When a National Toxicology Program study (ordered by Congress in 1977) clearly linking cancer to fluoridation was released in 1989, the PHS and the EPA quickly formed a new commission to review the findings.
In the final report, the evidence of carcinogenicity was systematically down-graded, leading Dr. William Marcus, then Senior Science Advisor and Toxicologist in the Office of Drinking Water, to blow the whistle and release the true findings. His reward for doing the job he was paid for? The EPA fired him! Although Dr. Marcus eventually won his suit against the EPA, and was joined by the rest of his co-workers, the chemists, toxicologists, and science professionals at the EPA who came out against fluoridation in 1997

The EPA like the FDA like to fire the actual scientists who do their jobs and replace them with industry insiders who do theirs.
like aspertame and how that got passed.
eeee can you say Rumsfeldstiltskin?
