Fluoride So Safe US Government Lowers Safe Level

Posted on May 15th, by Danny in Fluoride History, Fluoride Side Effects. 7 comments

On April 27, 2015, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) released a statement stating the recommended level of fluoride will be lowered across the United States. For the past 50 years, the US government has consistently stated that fluoride is safe at 1.2 ppm with the lowest recommended amount being 0.7 ppm. However, the new level will reduce the maximum safe amount to the previous lowest recommended dose at 0.7 ppm.

With the US government changing their official position on water fluoridation overnight, several issues come to mind:

1) The government is all but admitting that they have been over-fluoridating the American people for the past 50 years. Changing the recommended amount of fluoridation chemicals being added to the water supply should be a red flag to anyone who believes fluoride is safe. Why would the government change their position if fluoride were 100% safe for ingesting?

2) How are they determining “safe” levels for fluoride to be 0.7 ppm when everyone drinks a different amount of water?

3) Why is 0.7 ppm now the “magic number” for recommended amounts of fluoridation chemicals in the drinking water supply?

In Toronto, our government is putting 0.6 ppm of fluoridation chemicals in the water supply. Interestingly,this is down from 1.2 ppm in 1999 and 0.8 in 2005. At the time, both of these levels were considered to be “safe and effective.” So safe and effective that they lowered the level. What changed? Perhaps the realization that people were being over-fluoridated and thus harmed became too apparent to continue the official narrative.

This question is important when determining whether fluoride should be allowed in the water supply in the first place.

The DHHS and municipal governments here at home rarely make changes to their policies, particularly when they have consistently stated that fluoride is a completely harmless substance for decades. Lowering the level strongly shows their lack of authority in the matter, and degrades the possibility of continuing trust, knowing we have been lied to since artificial fluoridation’s inception.

Attempting to make a scientific estimation for the appropriate amount of fluoride is an impossible task, thereby leaving the risk of fluoride overdose a strong possibility. This latest statement proves that fluoride is a dangerous substance that should not be allowed into the water supply. Now it would seem, the government has realized the harm that has been done to the general population and has decided to make a drastic transformation to previous policy.

What level of fluoride will be considered “safe and effective” tomorrow?

  1. It appears that “endfluoridetoronto” has so little confidence in its position that it utilizes censorship of comments rather than presenting facts and evidence.

    Oh, well, not surprising in the least. When one has no defense for his erroneous opinions, censorship of the facts is often all that is left.

    History is littered with the abject failures of those who believed that suppression and censorship would further their “cause”.

    Good luck with that tactic!

  2. “Lowered”? “Changing official position overnight”?


    The optimal level of fluoride in drinking water is that level at which maximum dental decay prevention will occur, with no adverse effects. This optimal level was originally set by the US Public Health Service in 1962, as a range of 0.7 ppm to 1.2 ppm. It was set as a range in order to allow for different amounts of water consumption between different climates. Recent scientific evidence has demonstrated that, due to air-conditioning and other modern amenities, there no longer exist any significant difference in water consumption due to climate differences. Thus, there is no longer a need for a range. In recognition of this fact and of the greater availability of fluoride now, than when the optimal was originally established, the CDC, in 2011, recommended that the optimal range be consolidated into simply the low end of that range, 0.7 ppm. After several years of careful study and consideration as to whether this consolidation would significantly reduce the dental decay prevention of fluoridation, the US DHHS determined that it would not. Thus, in keeping with the original goal of providing maximum dental decay protection while minimizing any risk of adverse effects, the US DHHS recently announced that the optimal recommendation had been officially consolidated into the low end of the previous optimum range. The current optimal level is 0.7 ppm, the level at which most water systems have been fluoridating for years, anyway.

    • They lowered the recommended level Steven.

      Steve I wonder about you… I downloaded your past 12 months of Disqus comments (https://disqus.com/by/steve_slott/) and noticed that in Disqus alone, you wrote over 400,000 words in one year. That is the equivalent of writing 6-7 full novels in Disqus comments alone which does not include facebook, independent blogs, newspaper articles, and more. By comparison, my average blog post is 400 words. So in one year you could have written 1,000 blog posts, almost 3 a day… From Disqus comments alone.

      How would a real DDS have time to write that much? Are you not practicing anymore? Do you troll fluoride posts full-time now and copy and paste your responses? Or is “Steve Slott DDS” a team of trolls and if so who is funding you?

      Nothing you say will ever change the fact that in a true democratic society, each individual has the right to informed consent. I could not care less about what you think is right for me Steve. I make my own decisions.

      But there is great news for you Dr. Robot Slott. Since you love fluoride so much, after we get the toxic waste out of water supplies across the world, fluoride tablets will still be available to you for consumption on a daily basis for the rest of your life, taken “X” times daily with every single glass of water you drink.

      Welcome to http://www.endfluoridetoronto.com Steven.

      Bottoms up.

      • Wonderful answer to the robot Steve Slott. I wonder how much he gets paid for all his comments on saying Fluoridation is safe and effective when there are no toxicology studies and no respect for individual rights along with studies showing fluoridation is not effective while topical application if you want the poison in your mouth is.
