So my wife took our 9 month old daughter into the doctor's office for her checkup, my wife was told the county we live in does NOT have fluoride in the water supply......

Here I sit listening to her and am thinking GREAT, now I don't have to fear drinking our tap water when I mix iced tea or coolade.....

But wait, it get's better!!

She didn't tell me anything else, so we go out to the pharmacy to get a cream we got for her, she has 2 minor patches of dry skin we can't get cleared up, so the doc gave us a prescription moisturizing cream to put on her to clear that problem up...

So we pickup the cream, we get home and she takes it out of the bag, I see another box in there also and pulled it out, lo and behold it is FLUORIDE pills for a supplement.....

I asked my wife why she even bought these because I am not giving them to our daughter....She said she didn't buy them.......THEY WERE FREE!!!

She said the doctor told her we have to supplement her FLUORIDE pills for......Wait for it.........9 yes that is not a typo, 9 mother effin years!!!

So my wife, the average person who doesn't research this POISEN says to me, the doctor wouldn't prescribe it if it wasn't good for her.....
.......So needless to say the pills are in my possesion until she researches the topic....

Now, if she shows me a benefit to this I will reconsider my very strong approach of I will never give my daughter this poisen......BUT, if she finds out what I believe, then needless to say we will be switching doctors and throwing these fluoride supplement pills in the trash never to be seen again!!

What are your thoughts ATS? If you agree with the doctor, I would like some proof to substantiate your side, if not tell me I am not crazy and send some links so I can show the wife.......I showed her a couple that the government issued their statement to get rid of this from public water supplies because of the link to cardiovascular disease and lowered IQ in children.....

Got anything else for my defense??

This is pretty sick I must say. I'm so glad to live it the country side and have Fluoride free water but when I visit my friends and I explain to them I don't drink fluoride water they look at me like I have two heads!

I'm not sure if there is a study on fluoride affecting intelligence or whatever but from what I've seen children raised on fluoridated water end up dumber (harsh I know) than children raised on normal water. Just look around at most young people I bet almost all of them are raised on fluoridated water.

This has to be said and the information needs to be more widespread.

The doctors tried the same thing with us when my daughter turned two. My wife came home with the flouride and I threw it right into the trash. Needless to say she never brought flouride home again. The doctors are very pushy about it and that is quite annoying. It's almost as if they get paid extra to get us country folk to give in to their crap/ I like my clean well water just fine. I grew up without using flouride and I turned out just fine.

That's CRAZY..but you have done the right thing! Have your wife research first! I must have gotten really lucky with both my ped. and ped/dentist. Our ped. is very suspicious of our govt..and doesn't hardly ever prescribe anything. He told me some parents have stormed out of his office because he wouldn't prescribe antibiotics for their children's colds.

Our dentist is great too. He always ask first if we want the fluoride treatment. He always explains the pros and cons and even let us know that the use of fluoride is being debated in other countries. If you want the treatment he has you sign a waver. We NEVER get the treatment though. Pretty cool to know that I have doctors on the up and up.

Even if fluoride does help to make teeth stronger children don`t need it because they are going to lose those teeth anyways when their permanent teeth grow in.
I don`t think it`s worth the risk to poison yourself with fluoride just because it might make your teeth stronger, people can live just fine with dentures but I don`t think they can live just fine after poisoning themselves for years with fluoride.

I'd be bringing in the printoffs of what flouride is and does, to the doctor and ensuring he/her chooses to educate himself and quit endangering folk, or he would be known for being evil and avoided at all costs. Its a crimes against humanity.

It seems fluoride in water isn't even beneficial for teeth

Good for you ChrisF!

You have done the right thing and because of your research, will help not hurt.

I despise how some people fully trust these "medical" professionals without question.
It's almost as if there was nothing before them, no knowledge, no cures, nothing.
Humans just suffered with ailments and didn't survive for millenia without flouride!

I especially despise that it's free!
Good grief, the rage that would be unleashed if a doctor said that to me...

Something tells me you need to:
A: Inform your wife and doctors the horrors of supplemental flouride...
B: Find a new, better, more knowledgable doctor.

Keep up the good fight!

I can honestly say that i knew a man that made false teeth
so i asked him about FLUORIDE and he told me to limit the amount
as much as possible as it does us NO GOOD at all.

his workshop was in the ind est just by the park ,and by the big arch over the road
sorry i cant remember his name ,but i do know he now works from home

My wife was pregnant with our second child, the doctor did an RH factor test. The test results came back high. The doctor recommended a specialist and said there was something wrong with our baby. We go to the specialist and he assures us that the test can be wrong and he will run it 3 more times to be sure. He runs the tests and sets up an appointment to discuss the results. The man is literally crying. He said our baby would be born deformed.
spina bifida, etc. We tell him that we don't believe in abortion and will take what we get. He wants to do an amniocentesis,which we declined. I had a friend who worked at the Childrens Hospital in Houston and asked him to get me all the information he could on this RH factor test. A week later he hands me about 20 pages of information on it. It was a real eye opener. The reserach showed that if the RH test came out high that there was a 1 in 10k chance that the baby was abnormal. It also stated that 1 in 500 women miscarry after an amniocentesis. It stated that if the baby's and mothers blood type were the same that the test would come out high. We made an appointment with the so called specialist and i tossed the RH factor research papers on his desk with the important info highlighted. He read it and said " I didn't know that!" She was born perfect, I am now a grandfather!
I don't think he did it on purpose. I think doctors are guilty of not really keeping up.

I couldn't agree more.....I wasn't there when this went down, I was at work....

Believe me, the doc is going to get an earful when I go to her next appointment!!

I was fuming my wife wouldn't listen to me.....She said everything from she will call a dentist to see if it is good.....I told her not to do that!

She just keeps saying you and your conspiracy mind.....
......BLA BLA BLA........This is serious and is harmful to our daughter.....Conspiracy or not, there is NO need for this crap, people got along just fine without it......

FREE? Ye Gods.Chuck that bag of fluoride pills in the garbage,where it belongs,i would if i were you.You are very fortunate to have unfluoridated drinking water,i also have that blessing.Our tapwater comes from a nearby artesian well,with just a bit of chlorine added-THE most delicious water imaginable.When i go visit my friend in town,i almost gag on the bitter,vile tasting water they have-i usually remember to take cooldrink along.
In fact next time im in the provincial capital,im going to look for fluoride-free toothpaste,this thread reminded me to make a note of that.

I am almost speechless after reading your post, you have every reason to be cautious with this known and proven toxin.

Search ATS for Fluoride and you will be reading for a very long time indeed.

You will find me in a lot of those threads and It is obvious where I stand on this issue.
Where we live people are buying Reverse Osmosis filter systems just to escape the very same poison that is in those pills your doctor sent home with your wife.

S&F For keeping this subject up front and center on ATS

Oh i assumed you have country water-well i really hope that is correct,that your county dont have its water fluoridated.

Don't give it to her.

Fluoride is being discredited on a regular basis with study after study and anecdotal testimony.

There is every reason to believe that fluoride doesn't even help tooth care, too much can cause holes in the teeth.

Hmm, I guess my 4 grandparents, who are all closing in on their 80s, should probably be dying a horrible death because of fluoride right now?

Ohh, the horror of fluoride!

I completely understand your frustration!
My ol' lady seems to comment quite the same way.
But as with most quarrels, a bit of research goes along way.
It always seems that she wants to believe a "professional" over her own opinon.
Or mine, for that matter, even if I show documents negating the advice.

I really don't care who says what.
Flouride is bad and only helped to sedate the prisoner Jews.
It doesn't help humans whatsoever...

I am still shocked as to why the prescription is FREE for 9 years!

(My thoughts are that "they" need more a complacent future...not curious)

Not to be rude, or cruel, but are you guys 'poor' ? Do you look or present yourselves as poor, lower class people? Do you walk in with packs of cigarettes sticking out of your pockets or the smell on you?

Just asking because I have a thought on this.

Edit to say, of course you would not give her the fluoride right?
