Fluoride: It's a major health hazard for many

Dental groups want to see our public water fluoridated - but there's a group of people whose health will definitely be harmed by the move, and you may be among them

Dental groups want to see our public water fluoridated - but there's a group of people whose health will definitely be harmed by the move, and you may be among them.


While putting fluoride into our water produces dubious health benefits, people with chronic kidney disease will see their health deteriorate further. Sufferers are likely to develop skeletal fluorosis, a form of arthritic bone disease, fractures and, paradoxically, dental decay.


Many people have chronic kidney disease, but don't know it. In America, around 20 million know they have the problem - but the same number also has it without realizing it. This suggests that the disease afflicts around 14 per cent of the population.


The health concerns over fluoridated water are so serious that America's National Kidney Foundation has come out against it


The problem is that many foods, drinks and dental products such as toothpaste already contain fluoride, which is also increasing people's exposure to the chemical.
