objective is keeping teeth healthy for the general population
Fluoride, a substance that's naturally found in water, preforms an important role in keeping healthy teeth by strengthening tooth enamel.
Nature puts enough in drinking water to do this job
Water fluoridation is adding fluoride compounds to water.
The process of adjusting the water's natural level to a level where it offers dental benefits.
It has been used to reduce tooth decay in communities for a decades.
Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel to resist the acid formed by plaque - whitish spots or flecks on their teeth or, in more extreme cases, dark streaks that look like decay
Research also shows that excess fluoride can have a wide range of negative health effects.
So we should be asking questions:
Is drinking fluoridate water for dental benefits - beneficial?
Is the water you drink, having a bad effect on you?
Many households are taking precautionary steps by installing water filters to avoid drinking too much of this chemical
Organic fluorine is present in vegetables, fruits, and nuts.
# Fluoride in water helps to prevent and can even reverse tooth decay
# More than 60 percent of the U.S. population has access to fluoridated water through public water supply systems.
# The optimal level of fluoride to prevent tooth decay is 0.7 milligrams per liter of water.
# Many studies, in both humans and animals, have shown no association between fluoridated water and cancer risk.
Health Canada continues to strongly support water fluoridation as a safe, effective and cost effective public health measure to help prevent dental cavities.
The safety and efficacy of water fluoridation has been frequently studied and continues to be supported by current science, and the beneficial effects of fluoride in the prevention of dental cavities have been well documented in scientific literature.
These benefits are recognized and endorsed by Health Canada and by more than 90 national and international professional health organizations including the Canadian Dental Association, the American Dental Association, the Canadian Public Health Association, the Canadian Paediatric Society, the Canadian Association of Public Health Dentistry, the American Public Health Association, the American Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council, the World Health Organization, and the World Dental Federation which represents one million dentists worldwide.
