CDC 2011/2012 statistics reveal low-income children’s tooth decay rates are increasing substantially – despite record numbers of children served fluoride from water, foods, dental products and medicines causing an overall alarming surge in fluoride-overdose symptoms – dental fluorosis (discolored teeth), reports the New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF)
Decay rates for children, living 100% below the Federal Poverty Level, are 40% in three- to five-year-olds; 69% in six- to nine-year-olds; and 74% in 13-15 year-olds, based on Federal data (2011/2012 NHANES) to be presented at an American Public Health Association Meeting 11/2/16).
Previous cavity rates (NHANES III 1988-1994) for similar children’s primary teeth were much lower – 30% of 2-5 year-olds; 42% of 6-12 year-olds and 34% of 15-18 year-olds’ permanent teeth.”Claims that poor children need fluoride are without merit or evidence,” says attorney Paul Beeber, NYSCOF President. “It’s the dental care delivery system that needs fixing. Low-income Americans need dental care not fluoride.”
