I wish that I could say that I found the below posted photo somewhere on the Web, but sadly, it is my son. Dental fluorosis. Don't let your child
near those pills, OP.
When my spouse and I tried to determine how our son ended up with dental fluorosis, he admitted that as a child he would secretly swallow toothpaste
because he liked the taste of it even though he was told by us not to. No wonder the warnings not to ingest it are on the toothpaste label. If this
is what a pharmaceutical grade fluoride compound can do, just imagine what the unregulated, non-pharmaceutical compound HFSA (added to municipal
drinking water) does to our bodies.
There are many other sources of ingested fluoride that you have no control over (if you are even aware of them) besides what is added to the water, so
even if the doctor is providing you with a regulated dosage, truly, there is NO way to assure that your child is not ingesting toxic levels due to all
of those other sources.
Fortunately for my family, we are related to a dentist and have been spared the thousands of dollars in cosmetic dentistry costs to deal with my
son's visible disfigurement of his teeth. It is not easy to conceal. Bleaching was ineffective in his case and micro abrasion has improved it only
somewhat. This, however, does not address the possibility that there could have been some other forms of non-visible systemic damage done. The mere
thought of this kills me.
I took an active role in advocating against the use of HFSA in my community's drinking water. Sanity prevailed and its continued use was voted down.
Mere weeks ago, another neighbouring community also voted to discontinue its use of municipal water fluoridation resulting in an entire county that is
now fluoride free.
I implore you once again, OP, to NOT administer this poison to your child. I also strongly suggest that you never allow this child to use a fluoride
containing toothpaste. There are safer choices available without compromising dental health.
