Reveals Controversial Fluoride Issue Reveals Controversial Fluoride Issue

The Fluoridegate scandal continues to unravel. All water fluoridation legislation should be repealed in all states that enact fluoridation. Generally people with built-in biases in support of fluoridation have been controlling the discussion about harm from fluorides. The Centers for Disease Control has clearly been trying to preserve fluoridation at all costs, but the facts about fluoride harm are coming out anyway.

This is a civil rights issue. No one should be subjected to drinking fluoride in their water, especially sensitive groups like kidney patients and diabetics, babies in their milk formula, or poor families that cannot afford to purchase unfluoridated water. Black and Latino families are being disproportionately harmed.

Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood supported “birth control water.” There is supporting evidence that shows that in some cases fluoridation negatively impacts the human reproductive systems.

I encourage everyone to take a moment and write to their state’s governor and legislative leaders. Tell them to hold grand jury investigations and hearings on Fluoridegate. For people who live in Georgia, please send a brief note to Governor Deal at this webpage: and email your legislators at:

  1. Hello. I am the Colorado State representative for Fluoride Action Network. I just wanted to take the time to applaud your efforts to halt the irresponsible and dangerous practice of water fluoridation. Like yourself, I am a Christian and I feel it is our responsibility to love on our neighbors by protecting them from harm. We truly need your continued vigilance in this arena! Many thanks to a fellow warrior. – Lisa

  2. Dear Alveda King,

    Thank you so much for speaking out about the fluoridation scandal. As a 17 year activist on the issue, I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to have the help of highly respected leaders such as yourself and your family.

    It has been difficult to know about this information for so long and to realize that it is precisely the tooth decay of poor children that has been used to sell dangerous fluoride compounds into the nation’s drinking water systems. Perhaps the following will be of interest to you.

    Baby Bottle Tooth Decay aka Early Childhood Caries:

    After decades of promoting water fluoridation for the sake of disadvantaged children, the University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry announced on December 18, 2008 they had received a record $24.4 million from the National Institutes of Health to fight early childhood caries, also known as “baby bottle tooth decay” or “nursing caries”. Published literature has long noted fluoridation’s failure:

    Auge, K. Denver Post Medical Writer. Doctors donate services to restore little girl’s smile. The Denver Post, April 13, 2004. (Note: Denver, CO has been fluoridated since 1954.)
    “Sippy cups are the worst invention in history. The problem is parents’ propensity to let toddlers bed down with the cups, filled with juice or milk. The result is a sort of sleep-over party for mouth bacteria,” said pediatric dentist Dr. Barbara Hymer as she applied $5,000 worth of silver caps onto a 6-year-old with decayed upper teeth. Dr. Brad Smith, a Denver pediatric dentist estimates that his practice treats up to 300 cases a year of what dentists call Early Childhood Caries. Last year, Children’s Hospital did 2,100 dental surgeries, many of which stemmed from the condition, Smith said, and it is especially pervasive among children in poor families.

    Shiboski CH et al. The Association of Early Childhood Caries and Race/Ethnicity Among California Preschool Children. J Pub Health Dent; Vol 63, No 1, Winter 2003.
    Among 2,520 children, the largest proportion with a history of falling asleep sipping milk/sweet substance was among Latinos/Hispanics (72% among Head Start and 65% among non-HS) and HS Asians (56%). Regarding the 30% and 33% resultant decay
    rates respectively; Our analysis did not appear to be affected by whether or not
    children lived in an area with fluoridated water.

    California Department of Health Services, Maternal and Child Health Branch, 1995; Our Children’s Teeth: Beyond Brushing and Braces.
    33% of Head Start children and 13% of non-Head Start preschool children had Early Childhood Caries/Baby Bottle Tooth Decay (BBTD).
    1) In non-fluoridated urban regions, 40% of Hispanic preschool children had BBTD.
    2) In fluoridated urban regions, 45% of Asian Head Start preschool children had BBTD.

    Barnes GP et al. Ethnicity, Location, Age, and Fluoridation Factors in Baby Bottle Tooth Decay and Caries Prevalence of Head Start Children. Public Health Reports; 107: 167-73, 1992.
    By either of the two criterion i.e., two of the four maxillary incisors or three of the four maxillary incisors, the rate for 5-year-olds was significantly higher than for 3-year-olds. Children attending centers showed no significant differences based on fluoride status for the total sample or other variables.

    Kelly M et al. The Prevalence of Baby Bottle Tooth Decay Among Two Native American Populations. J Pub Health Dent; 47:94-97, 1987.
    The prevalence of BBTD in the 18 communities of Head Start children ranged from 17 to 85 percent with a mean of 53%. The surveyed communities had a mixture of fluoridated and non fluoridated drinking water sources. Regardless of water fluoridation, the prevalence of BBTD remained high at all of the sites surveyed.

  3. Dear Dr. King:

    BLESS YOU for getting involved in this critical issue! For years now, I feel as if I’ve been beating my head against a brick wall….so many refuse to look at the latest research! One local utility attorney told me, in response to my alerting them to the dangers of adding fluoride / hydroflosilicic acid to the water supply…’the perception is that it’s GOOD, so we won’t be halting the use of it’!

    You’re also right about it being a ‘civil rights issue’. Dr. King, no system except a Reverse Osmosis OR distillation system will remove this tiny molecule from the drinking water….and ALL who can’t afford this expensive retrofit are victims of fluoridation. That encompasses struggling middle class folks of all races in addition to those you’ve already mentioned. God help us…we’re literally, slowly being poisoned.

    Please continue the fight until you’ve WON. YOU have a legacy of courage and persistence that is sorely needed here…bless you in your efforts and know that we pray for your success!

  4. Dear Alveda,
    Thank you so much for joining the team to stop fluoridation. I am the FAN National Spokesperson Against Fluoride Poisoning. Our town was artificially fluoridated for 20 years and we lost 8 horses and 4 dogs to chronic fluoride poisoning. The ailments we saw in our animals have been and are being seen in humans too, but the doctors and vets just aren’t taught the many and varied ailments that fluoride can cause.

    Your speaking out against fluoridation will save untold lives. I know God is directing all those working on the goal of stopping fluoridation with our actions and words and the result will be improved health in both humans and animals.

    Bless you for your willingness to get involved in this humanitarian effort. God is truly opening doors for the betterment of earth and it’s inhabitants.

  5. Had you thought of trying to interest Tavis Smiley in this issue? He could perhaps reach a wider audience ………..

  6. As FAN coordinator for the state of Texas and founder of Fluoride Free Austin, I thank and commend you for taking an outspoken stand against water fluoridation.

    Your comment that the facts about fluoride harm are coming out despite the CDC’s desperate attempts to preserve their fluoridation program is so true. It recalls the scene in The Wizard of Oz in which a little dog pulls aside a curtain to reveal the Wizard’s true identity. “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain,” he pleads, but it’s too late – everyone has noticed him by now.

  7. On behalf of Alveda,

    Why don’t you try and reach out to Tavis and ask him to watch Maafa 21. She has tried to reach out to him and he has not replied.

    God bless,
    Asst. to Dr. Alveda King

  8. Thank you Alveda for speaking out about the dangers of fluoride! I truly appreciate the stand that you are taking on this important issue. As a parent, I am greatly concerned about the harm that fluoride is causing my family.

    The reduction in fluoride levels that the CDC recently recommended is not sufficient as we will all continue to be overexposed to fluoride at 0.7 ppm. The only sane answer is to remove fluoride completely from our water. Using the water supply to mass medicate the population is unethical, period.

  9. Dear Dr. King,
    There’s another Fluoride problem that occurs with many patients other than ‘Spots on Their Teeth.’ A patient comes to the clinic with a toothache, no visible signs of caries, after an x-ray of the area, it is revealed that the tooth is hollow. When fluoride can do this to a molar tooth (the hardest part of the human body) what other invisible horrors are happening.
    Australians are also arguing with councils and Government to have the Fluoride Contaminants removed from our water supplies.
    Specialists here in Aust; have said that the rate of new Dementia Patients is now Overwhelming our ‘Health Systems.’ So it’s up to us again…. Get emailing folks…. My very best wishes in your quest, to correct the terrible wrong that has gone on for far too long …. Yours truly~Dorothy.

  10. Dear Dr. King:

    Good Morning! As the Florida State representative for Fluoride Action Network and President of Citizens for Sate Water in Clearwater, Fl. I would like to say thank you for joining the national fight against water fluoridation, a civil rights issue of the first order.

    We just got fluoride out of the water here in Pinellas County as of yesterday, affecting 700,000 people. We are now working on the other 300,000 in St. Petersburg. Do you have someone down here that would like to work with us? Let me know if we can be of service to you.

    We have all pushed on the “Rock of Truth” and it is rolling down the hill, picking up speed and mass, let us multiply the energy and the results.

    “Truth is to Fluoridation what the Iceberg was to the Titanic”

    When 200,000,000 in the USA are being drugged without knowledgable consent, by people who should know better and prevaricate to maintain their power, we have the equivalent of premeditated slavery-effectively of an entire populace. Some would liken this to Treason.

    God Bless and let’s bring this home!
