Costs for school water fluoridation are similar to those of any public water supply system serving a small population (i.e., 1, persons). In , the average annual cost of school water fluoridation was $ per student per year (range: $$) (Garcia,). In dollars, this cost would be $ per person (range: $$). Despite their near unanimous rejection of water fluoridation, the countries of western Europe have experienced the same decline in tooth decay as the heavily fluoridated US - and today enjoy, on average, the same rate of tooth decay.

  It is believed that fluoridated drinking water can reduce cavities significantly and also tooth decay up to 90%. As per The WHO or World Health Organization, the benefits of fluoride in drinking water or water fluoridation are best for the economically poor individuals, who frequently do not have access to sufficient effective dental care. Fluoride is not required in all drinking water sources in the United States, but the levels of fluoride in water are regulated by several government agencies. Starting in , the United States Public Health Service (PHS) recommended that public water supplies contain between and milligrams of fluoride per liter (mg/L) of drinking.

In recent years public concern about water fluoridation has intensified. There has been a lot of debate on whether or not it is linked to a number of health effects. Community water fluoridation at a level of 1 ppm began in Ireland in as a measure to prevent dental caries. A major review of Ireland’s water fluoridation policy in showed. ADA Applauds USPHS Final Recommendation on Optimal Fluoride Level in Drinking Water The American Dental Association (ADA) commends the Department of Health and Human Services for announcing the U.S. Public Health Service final recommendation for the optimal level of fluoride in community water systems. The agency’s recommended ratio of fluoride to water, newly calibrated at .

FLUORIDE: THE FREEDOM FIGHT outlines the issues at stake and relates the history of what happened in one European country when a small band of objectors took on the power of governmental bureaucracy over the subject of fluoridation in water Moolenburgh was born in.

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

Fluoridated water operates on tooth surfaces: in the mouth it creates low levels of fluoride in saliva, which reduces. A paper reported a median fluoride concentration in European bottled water of mg/L, taken from samples, compared to mg/L for European tap water, from samples.

A book chapter frombut based on the same data, reported that the median fluoride concentration in Experience on water fluoridation in Europe. book bottled water from locations (with the.

In Europe, Ireland and some regions in Spain and the UK currently add fluoride to drinking water, at levels ranging from to mg/L. People’s exposure to fluoride varies a lot, depending on levels in water, what toothpaste they use, and other factors like use of mineral water and some kinds of tea.

Although the U.S. Centers for Disease Control hails water fluoridation as one of the “top ten public health achievements of the twentieth century,” most of the western world, including the vast majority of western Europe, does not fluoridate its water supply. At present, 97% of the western European population drinks non-fluoridated water.

The early studies reported reductions in decay experience of the order of 50% or more. That was at a time when fluoridated water offered the only significant source of fluoride. 22 rows  As the following table shows, only 3% of the population in western Europe is currently.

Israel recently announced a ban as well, as have parts of Africa. In Europe, only Ireland (73%), Poland (1%), Serbia (3%), Spain (11%), and the U.K.

(11%) fluoridate their water supplies according to the Fluoride Action Network. Because the United States does not take similar actions, and fluoride has been linked to cancer risks and a risk of lower IQ in children according to a recent Harvard.

In the U.S.A. 29 of the 30 largest cities have fluoridated water supplies (Portland defeated proposals for the 4th time to add fluoride to the water supply in ). Only 3% of Western Europe consume fluoridated water as of opposed to naturally fluoridated water,and to determine the impact,if any,of the level of water in fluoride exposure,especially in children,need to be tracked.

Research recommendations on caries include the need to study the impact of water fluoridation on. WHO established a guidance value for naturally occurring fluoride in drinking water of mg/L based on a consumption of 2 L water/day, and recommended that artificial fluoridation of water supplies should not exceed the optimal fluoride levels of mg/L (WHO ).

Fluoridated water reaches 12 million Europeans, mostly residents of Great Britain, Ireland and Spain. Fluoridated milk programs reach millions of additional Europeans, mostly in Eastern Europe.

Salt fluoridation is the most widely used approach in Europe. Drinking water fluoridation is not prohibited in Finland but no municipalities have turned out to be willing to practice it.

Water suppliers, naturally, have always been against dosing of fluoride chemicals into water.” (Leena Hiisvirta,Chief Engineer, Ministry. Norman Tinanoff, in Pediatric Dentistry (Sixth Edition), Optimally Fluoridated Water. Community water fluoridation is the most equitable and cost-effective method of delivering fluoride to all members of most communities.

Water fluoridation at the level of to mg fluoride ion/L (ppm F) was introduced in the United States in the s. Water fluoridation is the controlled adjustment of fluoride to a public water supply to reduce tooth dated water contains fluoride at a level that is effective for preventing cavities; this can occur naturally or by adding fluoride.

Download file to see previous pages Questions concerning the health impact of fluoride have been raised by various experts arguing that water fluoridation carries with it significant health risks which may not be easily managed in the long run.

This paper will provide an analysis of the health impacts and the current health situation in relation to the use of fluoride in the water, mostly in. THE FACT IS: THERE ISN'T ONE PEER-REVIEWED DOUBLE-BLIND STUDY ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD THAT SHOWS THAT WATER FLUORIDATION WORKS AND THAT IT IS PERFECTLY SAFE.

In their recent review of water fluoridation, the EU (European Union) Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks highlight that young children are likely to exceed the upper tolerable limits for fluoride consumption in areas with water fluoridation greater than ppm and using fluoride toothpaste, although the estimates of.

You cannot choose whether you have fluoride in your water. Fluoride is a mutagen and may cause cancer. Studies in the USA show that fluoride may make you less intelligent. Fluoride. does not prevent all forms of tooth decay. 98% of Western Europe has rejected water fluoridation.
