UK Against Fluoridation

Monday, July 31, 2017

Crazy advice for women from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists:

The ACOG says it is a "High-Risk Factor" if a woman lives in an area with "Inadequate Water Fluoridation." Therefore, ACOG advises women to take fluoride supplements.

The CDC Disagrees:
Based on the highest quality of criteria, there is "good evidence to reject the use of fluoride supplements for pregnant women," because there is "no benefit for their children." Furthermore, "No published studies confirm the effectiveness of fluoride supplements in controlling dental caries among persons aged >16 years." – CDC

Even the Australian Dental Association said:
"Fluoride supplements should not be taken during a pregnancy."

Worse: Fluoride supplements are prescription drugs that have never been proven safe or effective.

Research shows that the use of fluoride supplements (1.5 mg/day)
during pregnancy doubles fetal blood concentrations of fluoride.

The Preeclampsia Foundation recognizes the problem:
"For far too long, women have had a deficit of information about how the medications they need for other underlying health conditions can affect preeclampsia and their pregnancies... We need to take the next step forward in ensuring safe prescription drug use in pregnancy." – Executive Director

The Preeclampsia Foundation, however,
is ignoring placental fluorosis as a risk factor for preeclampsia.
