Comment on: Water fluoridation 'a safe way of stopping tooth decay'

Fluoridation is a dismal failure in the US. After 70 years of fluoridation, 60 years of fluoridated toothpaste, a glut of fluoridated dental products (and in higher concentrations), a fluoride-saturated food supply and US children are fluoride-overdosed and dentist deficient but it's been good for industry. The global market for Toothpaste is projected to reach US$14 billion by 2020. Instead of spreading less tooth decay across the land, fluoridation spread dental fluorosis (fluoride-discolored teeth) into every nook and cranny of America. Even though the CDC reports up to 60% of adolescents are afflicted with dental fluorosis, 51% of them have cavities. Opposite to predictions, since fluoridation began in 1945: 1) Tooth decay crises occur in all fluoridated cities. http://www.FluorideNews.Blogspot.com 2) New dental professionals were created, e.g. dental therapists. 3) New dental schools opened. 4) Dental expenditures went up substantially, higher than the inflation rate. 5) Poor children’s cavities are more prevalent, severe, occur earlier and more likely to be untreated. 6) Despite dental spending growth, 42% percent of adults and 4 million children with dental problems could not afford dental care. 7) More states had the need to hire Dental Directors 8) Since the Surgeon General announced a silent epidemic of tooth decay in 2000, scores of government, dental and oral health groups formed having countless meetings, symposiums, webinars and conventions including one focused on the growing tooth decay rates in toddlers because 1/3 of 3-year-olds now have cavities. 9) Because the CDC's oral health group can't prove fluoridation is safe for everyone, the CDC hired public relations firms to spin data to make fluoridation more attractive than science and government reports show it is 10) 52% of new recruits have oral health problems needing urgent attention that would delay overseas deployment 11) dental socioeconomic disparities have increased. 12) The National Center for Health Workforce Analysis projects The national demand for dentists is projected to grow by 20,400 13) Between 2008 and 2010, more than 4,000,000 patients visited hospital emergency departments for assistance with dental conditions, accounting for 1 percent of all emergency room visits during such period and at a cost of $2,700,000,000. The United States spends more than $111,000,000,000 on dental care every year. US Senator and Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders, in his 2012 report, “Dental Crisis in America,” says that 9,500 new dental providers are needed to meet the country’s current oral health needs and that tooth decay is the leading cause of school absenteeism
