Only 5% of the world and only 3% of Europe uses fluoridation because many large studies show fluoridation is totally ineffective in improving tooth decay and is dangerous to health (See fluoridealert.org). The citizens of the few countries which fluoridate also have the distinction of having the highest rates of arthritis and thyroid disease, both side effects of excessive ingestion of fluoride.
Enlightened countries have rejected forced fluoridation — Belgium, all of the Scandinavian countries, France, Germany, Japan, Switzerland and so forth. Ninety-seven percent of Western Europe has rejected it on principle or for scientific reasons. Israel has now suspended fluoridation based on studies that showed it does more harm than good. Also rejecting it is Japan, China, and India.
The reason most of the world rejects fluoridation is that they have learned it is ineffective for teeth and dangerous to health, including cancer, thyroid & pineal gland damage, broken hips from brittle bones, lowered IQ, kidney disease, arthritis and other serious health problems.
