HHS issues final recommendation for community water fluoridation
Adjusted level seeks to maintain dental health benefits of fluoride
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services today released the final Public Health Service (PHS) recommendation for the optimal fluoride level in drinking water to prevent tooth decay. The new recommendation is for a single level of 0.7 milligrams of fluoride per liter of water. It updates and replaces the previous recommended range (0.7 to 1.2 milligrams per liter) issued in 1962.
The change was recommended because Americans now have access to more sources of fluoride, such as toothpaste and mouth rinses, than they did when water fluoridation was first introduced in the United States. As a result, there has been an increase in fluorosis, which, in most cases, manifests as barely visible lacy white marking or spots on the tooth enamel. The new recommended level will maintain the protective decay prevention benefits of water fluoridation and reduce the occurrence of dental fluorosis.
“While additional sources of fluoride are more widely used than they were in 1962, the need for community water fluoridation still continues,” said U.S. Deputy Surgeon General Rear Admiral Boris D. Lushniak, M.D., M.P.H. “Community water fluoridation continues to reduce tooth decay in children and adults beyond that provided by using only toothpaste and other fluoride-containing products.”
For the past 70 years, communities across the United States have found that fluoride in their public water systems significantly improved their residents’ oral health. Fluoride occurs naturally in most water systems, but often at levels too low to prevent tooth decay. The practice of adding fluoride to a community’s water system to reach the optimal level for preventing tooth decay has grown steadily over the years. Nearly 75 percent of Americans who are served by public water systems receive fluoridated water.
Community water fluoridation has led to such dramatic declines in both the prevalence and severity of tooth decay that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention named it one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century. (NOTE BY EDITOR – This is blatant BS. In 2011 – 43% of the nations teenagers had dental fluorosis. The first sign of fluoride poisoning.)
“Community water fluoridation is effective, inexpensive and does not depend on access or availability of professional services. It has been the basis for the primary prevention of tooth decay for nearly 70 years,” said Dr. Lushniak. (NOTE BY EDITOR – More BS. Particularly in light of studies that show minorities like Blacks and Latins are harmed more than Whites by ingesting this poison.)

(NOTE BY EDITOR – If you teach children to eat well and brush their teeth, they will have better dental health.)
COMMENTS BY EDITOR, DONNA WESTFALL: In 2011, the recommendation was to lower “optimal” fluoride down to .7 ppm. The Crescent City, City Council did that in a 3-2 vote. Why did it take our Federal government another 4 years to finally make it official?
Could this announcement be coming on the heels of two recently released studies because proponents of water fluoridation might be trying to turn our attention away from the current research? One study is mentioned in this Newsweek article explaining that water fluoridation may increase the risk of underactive thyroid disorder (hypothyroidism). Another study, the first one ever to examine the relationship between exposure to fluoridated water and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) prevalence, was released around the same time. This means that our children and grandchildren could be harmed by fluoride.
Even at .7 ppm, infants are severely overdosed if they are fed formula made from powder and tap water. Diabetics and people on home dialysis, labourers, nursing mothers, athletes and anyone taking fluorinated medications.
Our Federal government is just 53 year late on realizing the harm of too much fluoridation. I hope it doesn’t take them another 53 years to stop this outdated practice altogether.
The question remains why is the government protecting fluoridation at all costs?
4 thoughts on “More BS from Dept. of Health & Human Services”
The editor leaves us with the remaining question WHY IS THE GOVERNMENT PROTECTING FLUORIDATION AT ALL COST?
I want my community to ask and know WHO IS THE GOVERNMENT?
HOW do I participate in the decisions my government makes?
WHERE can I go to complain about the illegal or unethical actions of my government.
How can I create new policies?
I want my community empowered with “Protecting Our Freedom Skills” and keeping the LOCAL government TRANSPARENT is to protect all of us from having our freedoms taken away. Having our government declare martial law to PROTECT THE CITIZENS.” THIS CAN”T HAPPEN HERE? Yes, it can, and it is!
I watched US ATTORNEY GENERAL ROBERT KENNEDY ORDER our armed national guard walk two BLACK AMERICAN STUDENTS into Alabama’s segregated school.
I watched millions of Black Americans march on Washington to listen to MARTIN LUTHER KING’S “I HAD A DREAM.”
I watched President Kennedy,”Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country”. … John F. Kennedy. I then watched him get half of his head blown off every night on the news.
As we listened to Dion question “Where have you gone Abraham, Martin and John?” The promoters and protectors of civil rights have been assassinated. Some body does not want us to have rights or leaders that promote rights.
Many studies show fluoride decreases I.Q. and is used in anti depressants. Prozac is fluoxetine, thus “dumbing” down” our society and creating apathy. Only a fluoridated (“dumbied”downed) society could buy the reasoning for decreasing fluoride in the public’s water supply, since we get fluoride (“dumbing” down drug) in so many other products. Question, why we are not totally removing fluoride from the water supply and see if children continue to show signs of fluoridosis (fluoride poisoning) That would imply too much fluoride (the dumbing down drug) is being used as additives in our food supply. Remember, what fluoride does to our teeth is happening to our bones.
I watched my male senior class mates register for the draft, be inducted into the Army, or go to jail. The nightly news showed a journalist shoulder to shoulder with infantry in real time blowing up Viet Nam. I watched dead class mates return home in black body bags nightly. I watched Bush censure any videos of dead vets returning home from our invasion of the Middle East. I saw “America Love It or Leave It” signs held by older people and “Fighting for Peace is Like F#@cking For Virginity” held by “Long Haired Boys,” headlines Against Birth Control and the evils of promoting promiscuity, 13 year old girls dead from “back ally abortions” Doctors murdered for preforming legal abortions, Gay’s beaten up, “rolled” and left for dead, women given life sentences for shooting her drunken husband after he had severely beaten and raped her the police said there was no crime in getting drunk and a husband could not rape his wife.
I remember parents, spouses, children marching, protesting the since- less killings of the Viet Nam war and the power of the people ending the killing, and mangling of bodies and minds.
I remember a community and its News Paper “THE TRIPLICATE” belittling Donna Westfall’s efforts to make the city council be accountable for $43,000,000 for the WWTP and censoring her questioning the integrity of local leaders and their staff who lacked the integrity to fill out form 700, the conflict of interest form. The form that ends any questioning of stealing from the public. Donna, has created an on line news paper that does not censor ideas.
It is too bad the Triplicate does not follow her example.
The government had decades to show off their chemicals and GMO’s. They have also showed us their abilities in mind control. My aunt was killed on Egypt air when a co-pilot was taking a “hop” back to Egypt. Even though he was not on duty he became insistent that the captain take a break and he would pilot the plane (his regular job). As the pilot was walking down the isle the plane took a 90 degree dive to the ocean.
In spite of all their strength and efforts to over take over the controls the co pilot was able to turn off the engine. This requires the manipulation, simultaneously of two controls. The requirement of using two controls is a safety feature so the engine will not be turned off accidentally. The black box and fuselage were recovered, along with interviews regarding his resent actions confirmed the mind control scenario.
Several months ago I watched a documentary on Netflix. Dark legion #2 was about the incredible similarities of JFK Jr’s plane crash. Both went down off Martha’s’ Vineyard. Within miles of each other the fuselage of each plane showed the engines had been deliberately turned off. The CRASHES WERE WITHIN WEEKS OR MONTHS OF EACH OTHER.
Our gov. has been suggesting its citizens, for instance, eat GMO”s, be vaccinated even though there are reports of Mercury in the vaccine. There are no controlled studies performed. The ability to question the authorities is limited, in time and availability of an intelligent response from an educated person who is not being threatened or bribed.
With years of experience that left citizens feeling safe, and valued. I have lived long enough and I know how to read and google. Government, please remember the best advice given is that that is asked for. Please do not add anymore toxic waste to our water, our food or environment. And if you ever want me to trust you, work on your honesty and integrity.
The Del Norte Triplicate of April 28, 2015 front page article titled, “Splotchy teeth prompt feds to lower fluoride” The Associated Press reports, The government is lowering the recommended amount of fluoride in drinking water because some kids are getting too much. One study found about 2 out of 5 adolescents had tooth streaking or spottiness, said Deputy Surgeon General Boris Lushniak.
So glad to read this. The truth finally comes out.
