“I think people don’t understand the importance of a fluoride test,” says James E. Williams, M.D., a pediatric dentist who has studied dental fluoridation in the U.S. and elsewhere for decades.
“We use them to identify dental fluorides in water, but we do it without understanding how they work.”
He is the founder of Fluoride Action Network, an advocacy group.
“If you don’t know how it works, how does it work?”
Dr. Williams says he has seen patients with dental fluorosities, including those who are sensitive to the poison.
“And then I had patients who have high emotional intelligence who have dental fluoroses.
That is very rare.
And yet they get diagnosed.”
