Fluoridation by country - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fluoridation by country - Wikipedia

Water fluoridation is the controlled addition of fluoride to a public water supply to reduce tooth decay; and is handled differently by different countries. Fluoridated water has fluoride at a level that is effective for preventing cavities; this can occur naturally or by adding fluoride.

@patomahony1 @jwalshireland Jason, is it cos most other Euro countries don't have their water fluoridated

‘The level of tooth decay in young children is catastrophic’

‘The level of tooth decay in young children is catastrophic’ | fluoride-free water: the global  battle for safer water | Scoop.it
One-year-olds are having teeth extracted. It can be prevented, say experts
Shan Kelly's insight:
 Tackling TOOTH DECAY IN very young CHILDREN. 

There is no mention of  Ireland's mandatory fluoridation policy  in this article, which may mark some progress, and it contains  some evidence of progressive thinking on how IRELAND can tackle   the huge and growing problem of TOOTH DECAY IN very young CHILDREN. 
This report by dental experts advises  parents to  drastically cut down on the  huge number of  treats like  sweetened yogurts and follow on milk that Irish  children are given, and  reccommends a massive reform of Government-funded dental services  because some children are losing a huge number of  teeth to decay far earlier than they should  be.
 Experts say the  official figures on decay from the HSE are misleading and are actually far worse than reported.
 “Reports from the HSE claim that the number of cavities found in children under five has been reduced and the current average is 1½ cavities per child,” 
“However, this is not the reality as I see it, because in a group of, say, 20 children, 15 will have perfect teeth while the other five will have appalling levels of decay and  will  need to have eight teeth or more extracted at a very young age

Fluoride: Drinking Ourselves to Death?

Fluoride: Drinking Ourselves to Death? | fluoride-free water: the global  battle for safer water | Scoop.it
Fluoride is more toxic than lead, yet it is routinely added to the drinking water of Ireland and Britain. In Fluoride: Drinking Ourselves to Death?, Barry Groves presents an array of convincing and persuasive arguments that dismantle the commonly held belief that the fluoridation of water is beneficial to our health.The fluoridation of water has been used for the prevention of tooth decay for over fifty years. During this time little research has been done to ascertain whether it works. The chemicals used are classified as toxic industrial waste, yet no study has ever been conducted into their safety for human consumption. At the same time, research has uncovered serious side effects including death, cancer, skeletal fluorosis, osteoporosis, dementia, lowered IQ, kidney damage and even increased dental decay. Fluoride is only slightly less toxic than arsenic and all the evidence points incontrovertibly to the harm caused by fluoride to human, plant and animal life. Yet it is routinely added to the drinking water of five million people in Britain and more than two and a half million people in Ireland. Strongly opposed throughout the world, water fluoridation is far less widely accepted than its proponents would have us believe. Only two percent of the people of Western Europe have their water fluoridated — almost all of them within Britain and Ireland. Despite this, dental organisations lobby governments to compel everyone to ingest fluoride, whether they want it or not and without regard to possible harm. The vast majority of dentists maintain that the fluoridation of water is not debatable. In this book, Barry Groves assembles evidence to refute every single argument made by the dental establishment in favour of fluoridation. This carefully researched and persuasively written book demonstrates that the case for fluoridation of water is based on poor science and dogmatic ignorance rather than on any scientifically proven benefit to public health. His conclusions are truly alarming for everyone concerned with their own health, that of their families and of society in general.Fluoride: Drinking Ourselves to Death?: Table of ContentsIntroductionWater FluoridationFluoride and Water SafetyCancer and FluorideSafe Limit for FluorideResearch into FluorideFluoridation and High Infant MortalityFluoride as a Cumulative PoisonFluoride KillsPeople at Risk from FluorideEPA Scientists and FluorideSupport for Fluoridation Diminishes in AmericaThe Totality of FluorideThe Ethics and Legality of FluoridationDental FluorosisThe Dose Makes the PoisonFluoride-Related Bone Problems, Part OneFluoride-Related Bone Problems, Part TwoThe Death of ScienceThe Poor and Fluoride ToxicitySugar and Truth DecayMoney Down the DrainThe History of Water Fluoridation, Part OneArsenic and Old LiesThe History of Water Fluoridation, Part TwoDentrifrice — or Rodenticide?
