Fluoride Linked to Coronary Heart Disease

Fluoride Linked to Coronary Heart Disease

Dental fluorosis is a condition caused by too much fluoride, and it’s on the rise in the United States, despite the US government knowing about it for some time now. Though it can happen to anyone, the condition  (which ruins teeth) affects more children than adults, primarily because children’s teeth are still developing and more susceptible to fluorosis.

But did you know that dental fluorosis is also a biomarker for coronary heart disease?

When Will the Fluoride Poisoning Stop?

Per the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in 2010:  “Prevalence of dental fluorosis was higher among younger persons and ranged from 41% among adolescents aged 12-15 to 9% among adults aged 40-49.” That rate of 41% in  adolescents aged 12-15 increased from 22.6% back in 1986-87  (almost double).

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services planned in 2010  to lower the amount of fluoride allowed in water, though so far there has been no change to the amounts of fluoride added.

Today, the CDC still promotes fluoridation to water as well fluoride dental products.

Fluoride and Heart  Disease

In  2013, a study in Ireland was prompted over concern with that fluorosis might be linked with cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death in Ireland.

The study found that the concern was indeed justified:  “Dental Fluorosis is a biomarker for coronary heart disease (CHD). Professor Takamori’s research team observed that children with dental fluorosis have a higher incidence of heart damage and an increase in abnormal heart rhythm than those without fluorosis.”

In lieu of the evidence, will the government of Ireland stop their policy of mandatory fluoridation of the population of Ireland?

And regarding the US?

Dental Fluorosis in the United States

Well,  in summary:

In 2010, the US  government knew people were ingesting dangerous levels of  fluoride, knowing causing florosis in 40% of children (among other things) and now potentially contributing to the  increasing incidence of cardiovascular disease in the United States. Regulators  said the amount of fluoride in drinking water should be lowered. However…

  • 2011: There was no change to fluoride levels allowed in drinking water
  • 2012: There was no change  to fluoride levels allowed in drinking water
  • 2013: There was no change to  fluoride levels allowed in drinking water
  • 2014: We are still  waiting…

Meanwhile,  US dentists still promote the use of fluoride treatments,  fluoride toothpaste, and  fluoride mouthwash, despite  the evidence that it is linked to heart disease,  and  other illnesses.
