The water fluoridation controversy arises from political, moral, ethical, economic, and safety concerns regarding the fluoridation of public water supplies.
Public health authorities throughout the world find a medical consensus that water fluoridation at appropriate levels is a safe and effective means to prevent dental caries.
Fluoridated water contains fluoride at a level that is effective for preventing cavities; this can occur naturally or by adding fluoride.(Bordeaux Study JAMA 1994) • Fluoride Increases Infertility Infertility in women was found to increase with water fluoridation. Freiberg University was where Rockefeller chose to give the research grants for the ‘Golden Rice’ GMO product.Food and Drug Administration (FDA) scientists reported a close correlation between decreasing total fertility rates in women between ages of 10 and 49, and increasing fluoride levels. This was in 1987 when East Germany was still under Soviet control.Water fluoridation is the process of adding fluoride to the water supply so the level reaches approximately 0.7 ppm, or 0.7 milligrams of fluoride per liter of water; this is the optimal level for preventing tooth decay (1). population served by public water systems had access to fluoridated water (3).In 1945, Grand Rapids, Michigan, adjusted the fluoride content of its water supply to 1.0 ppm and thus became the first city to implement community water fluoridation. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) considers fluoridation of water one of the greatest achievements in public health in the 20th century.
