Water Fluoridation, Has It Outlived Its Usefulness?

For many of us, water fluoridation is a matter of everyday experience, and we generally take its presence in our drinking water and its value in cavity prevention for granted. The first public water fluoridation occurred in the U.S. in 1945. Today, 67 percent of American communities have public fluoridated water systems. In fact, water fluoridation has spread thruout most of the developed world and is considered one of the ten greatest public health interventions of the twentieth century.

 Water Fluoridation, Has It Outlived Its Usefulness?

Tap water fluoridation has been around for over 65 years. But is it more harmful than beneficial? Many countries have already banned its use, so why hasn't the United States?

Four myths about water fluoridation and why they’re wrong

Evidence gathered over 60 years about adding fluoride to drinking water has failed to convince some people this major public health initiative is not only safe but helps to prevent tooth decay. Myths about fluoridated water persist. These include fluoride isn’t natural, adding it to our water supplies doesn’t prevent tooth decay and it causes conditions ranging from cancer to Down syndrome.

Top Ten Reasons to Oppose Water Fluoridation

Hundreds of research articles published over the past several decades have demonstrated potential harm to humans from fluoride at various levels of exposure, including levels currently deemed as safe.

Campaign for Dental Health

The Campaign for Dental Health (CDH) was created to ensure that people of all ages have access to the most effective, affordable and equitable way to protect teeth from decay — water fluoridation. The CDH is a broad network of oral health advocates, health professionals, child and family organizations, and scientists who are working together to preserve our nation’s gains in oral health. It is our mission to provide the public and policy makers with the evidence-based information and tools they need to promote and protect this important public health measure.

Fluoride News Tracker

Tooth decay: a sad national epidemic caused by lack of dentists who care and not a fluoride need. Extensive lobbying, political maneuvering and expensive public relations campaigns by organized dentistry sway legislators to add fluoride chemicals into public water supplies, 2/3 of which already are, to benefit those whom dentists neglect. Protecting their high-salaried monopoly, dentists lobby against dental groups offering quality, cheaper fixes. Fluoride product makers benefit most.

Fluoride Facts: Sources, Exposure and Health Effects... Sources of human exposure to fluoride have drastically increased since community water fluoridation began in the U.S. in the 1940’s. In addition to water, these sources now include food, air, soil, pesticides, fertilizers, dental products used at home and in the dental office, pharmaceutical drugs, cookware (non-stick Teflon), and an array of other consumer items used on a regular basis. Most people are not aware of important fluoride facts about these sources. Exposure to fluoride is suspected of impacting nearly every part of the human body, and the potential for harm has been clearly established in scientific research.

International Society for Fluoride Research

The Society is an independent non-profit organization which promotes the sharing of scientific research on all aspects of inorganic and organic fluorides by hosting international conferences on fluoride research and publishing quarterly, online (ISSN2253-4083) and in print (ISSN 0015-4725), the open access journal Fluoride: Quarterly Journal of the International Society for Fluoride Research Inc.


Why does HHS think that 0.7 milligrams per liter is appropriate? HHS has reviewed extensively the scientific literature on the relationship between fluoride and oral health. The optimal level of fluoride in drinking water provides enough fluoride to prevent tooth decay in children and adults while limiting the possibility for children to develop dental fluorosis in teeth that are forming under the gums.
