Hi moms, we recently moved to the country to a house with well water from a suburban house with city water. Both the pediatrician and dentist have recommended starting our preschool boys on daily fluoride tablets....thoughts? Thanks!
My dad gave me daily fluoride pills growing up. I have fluoridosis on my teeth and I have brittle bones. I had headaches daily for a stretch when I was in elementary school.
There is a meta-analysis that shows strong evidence that children with fluoride in their water suffer from lower IQs.
Wouldn't do it.
Here is the study from Harvard on fluoride IQ:
Medical professionals don't seem to have caught up to all the science out there on the dangers of fluoride.
I wouldn't do it either, I try my very best to limit the amount of fluoride we ingest, not easy, but at least I can control our drinking and cooking water. You are lucky to have unfluoridated water, most in the US are not so lucky.
