Dear Dr. Walensky,

 

This is an update to our May 3 letter to you with 35 more professionals added to the original list of 29 signers As of May 5, 2021, 64 professionals have signed this letter.

 

May 3, 2021

 

Dear Dr. Walensky,

 

 

First, let us congratulate you on your recent appointment as Director of the CDC. Like millions of Americans and others we wish you every success in your leading role in the fight against the COVID 19 pandemic.

 

With respect to this emergency we believe that it is critical that everything possible be done to maintain the public’s trust in the credibility of your agency. Hence the reason we are writing to you today.

 

We write as professionals who have experience in a wide range of arenas including academic research, medicine, dentistry, public health, public utilities, law, journalism, the environment and environmental health.

 

Most of us have spent many years involved in the debate over water fluoridation and have carefully studied the science dealing with the toxic effects of fluoride.

 

Neurotoxicity of fluoride

 

Of particular interest to us has been an ever-growing body of studies, beginning in the mid-1990s, that indicate that fluoride is neurotoxic.

 

To date, more than 67 human studies, most from endemic fluorosis areas in China, have associated lowered IQ with fluoride exposure. Promoters of water fluoridation have dismissed the relevance of these studies a) because of methodological limitations and b) because many (but not all) of these findings occurred at higher fluoride concentrations than those used in water fluoridation programs. Nevertheless, there has been general agreement that the findings have been remarkably consistent (Choi et al., 2012).

 

A very significant improvement in the quality of these studies occurred in 2017, when the first of four NIEHS-NIH funded studies were published (Bashash 2017 and 2018; Green 2019; and Till 2020). These were rigorously designed studies for which many potential confounders were controlled. In addition, fluoride exposures and cognitive outcomes were based on measurements made at the individual (as opposed to community) level.  For the first time, the studies included measurements made in pregnant women and their offspring. This was important because fluoride is known to cross the placenta.

 

Most importantly, the fluoride exposures in these studies were at levels commonly experienced by pregnant women and children in fluoridated communities in the USA. The weight of evidence now strongly suggests that fluoride is capable of damaging both the fetal and the infant brain at very low levels.

 

Presumably, such findings have been jarring for those who have enthusiastically supported water fluoridation and who have hitherto believed that the only harm caused by fluoride for those drinking fluoridated water was mild dental fluorosis (disrupted enamel formation which can appear as white spots or staining on teeth). Needless to say, damage to the developing brain is far more serious than damage to the tooth enamel.

 

The leaders of the Oral Health Division at the CDC appear to be in a state of denial on fluoride’s neurotoxicity. This was clearly illustrated at a recent event, which has triggered this letter to you.

 

CDC Oral Health director’s false statement

 

At a recent webinar (March 11, 2021) organized by the American Association of Dental Research (AADR) and the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), CDC Oral Health Director Casey Hannan responded to a question submitted to him about a week before the meeting. He claimed that the recent NIH-funded studies, discussed above, were conducted at levels much higher than currently used in water fluoridation programs. This answer was false and it is disturbing that it was issued in a prepared statement. A slip-up in an off-the-cuff comment might have been excusable.

 

Here is his exact quote:

 

“The NIEHS-published studies and others published around the world were looking at levels which are much higher than the recommended 0.7 mg/Liter (ppm) that the US has.” (Casey Hannan’s statement can be viewed on videotape at https://youtu.be/BmqPU9Ap_fA?t=2163 )

 

Contrary to Hannan’s assertions, the NIEHS-NIH funded studies were carried out at doses currently experienced in fluoridated communities. Specifically, these studies were either done in communities fluoridated at the CDC’s recommended level of 0.7 ppm (mg/L) of fluoride in water (Green 2019 and Till 2020) or in communities experiencing equivalent fluoride doses as measured in mother’s urine (Bashash, 2017 and 2018).

 

Hannan might simply claim that he was doing his job in carrying out the Oral Health Division’s mission of promoting water fluoridation as a method of fighting tooth decay in children. To our point, it is the way that the CDC’s mission has been carried out over so many years that concerns us. It has been highly biased and Hannan’s blatant mis-statement is just the latest example. Many of Hannan’s predecessors have repeatedly claimed that fluoridation is “safe and effective” without producing the studies that demonstrate safety and ignoring those that show harm.

 

The Oral Health Division’s biased promotion of fluoridation

 

We believe CDC Oral Health Division personnel have seen their task as simply promoting the benefits of fluoridation, and have repeatedly downplayed health risks posed by swallowing fluoride. We believe that this situation, in part, is due to the fact this small division of about 30 people has no specialists in tissues other than the teeth. None are specialists in neurology, neurotoxicity, bones, the thyroid gland, the kidneys, and other systems that have been found by the National Research Council to be affected by fluoride (NRC 2006). The Oral Health Division appears to employ no toxicologists.

 

While fluoridation is instigated at the municipal level (often against the express wishes of many citizens), local decision makers are often heavily influenced by the CDC’s enthusiastic promotion of this practice. Indeed, hardly a day goes by without some local official somewhere stating that the CDC considers fluoridation, “One of the top public health achievements of the twentieth century” (CDC, 1999).

 

The CDC’s failure to adequately consider health risks posed by fluoride

 

We are concerned that the CDC’s failure to adequately consider the health risks posed by fluoride has left a gaping hole in CDC’s understanding of the consequences of fluoridation.

 

The loss of IQ points has lifelong consequences. For the individual, it has been estimated that a loss of one IQ point would reduce lifetime earnings by $18,000 (Grandjean et al., 2012). The losses observed in the NIEHS-NIH funded studies range from 3 to 9 IQ points for an increase of 1 mg/liter of fluoride in water and thus an estimated drop of 2-7 IQ points drop for a community fluoridated at 0.7 ppm. To put that into perspective, at the population level a shift downwards of 5 IQ points halves the number of very bright children (IQ >130) and increases by 57% the number of children needing special care (IQ <70). Both changes have enormous social and economic ramifications for the USA.

 

In addition, a major prospective cohort study from Sweden demonstrates a higher risk of hip fractures in post-menopausal women associated with long term exposure to natural fluoride at levels in water in the same range as America fluoridates its water [Helte et al., 2021].

Also, recent epidemiological studies conducted in the United States, using individual biomarker measures of fluoride exposure, have found an association between low to moderate fluoride intake and impaired renal and hepatic function [Malin et al., 2019], increased risk of hyperuricemia [Wei et al., 2021], as well as adverse effects on reproductive endocrinology in U.S adolescents [Bai et al., 2020].

 

Need for a pause in CDC’s promotion of fluoridation and a resolution of the safety issues surrounding fluoridation

 

When you and your staff have examined these recent findings, we hope that you will agree that there is an urgent need to put a pause on further promotion of fluoridation by the CDC – at least until these scientific issues have been very carefully reviewed by qualified CDC personnel who have had no prior association with efforts to promote this practice.

 

To this end, and looking even beyond fluoridation, we urge that you institute a special committee, or even a new division at the CDC to regularly review the scientific underpinnings of public health practices. Such reviews would look at neurotoxic and other effects that, in the context of public health policy, could expose the whole population to unacceptable risks. Reviews should be comprehensive and rigorous and be submitted to Congress on an annual basis.

 

As far as the Oral Health Division is concerned we believe that until the issue of these serious health threats has been resolved, the division should focus its resources on ways of fighting tooth decay without exposing the population to fluoride in the water supply.  As you know, most countries promote dental health without fluoridating their water.

 

There is a clear need to focus on dental care for low-income families, but we need to do so without compromising our children’s mental development. Federal, state and local governments need to provide better access to preventive dental care and early education for better diet and dental hygiene. The latter has proved very successful in Scotland (see the ChildSmile program).

 

Environmental Justice

 

Seen as a way of reducing inequities in dental care, fluoridation claims a noble purpose. Unfortunately, the effort has seriously backfired. Lowering IQ with fluoride exposure adds a further handicap to the mental development of children from low income families, especially those living in the inner city. The latter are already contending with a higher burden of lead pollution (see Fluoride Action Network’s 2015 report submitted to the Environmental Justice Interagency Working Group).

 

Immediate warnings needed for pregnant women and parents

 

As an immediate step, we urge you as Director of the CDC, to issue warnings to both pregnant women and parents of formula-fed infants to avoid fluoridated water and other sources of fluoride. A Cochrane Review in 2017 concluded that ingestion of fluoride during pregnancy conferred no dental benefit, so this is a situation where risks are being taken for no proven benefit. This point was made by two leading public health researchers (Bruce Lanphear MD, MPH, and Christine Till, PhD) along with Linda Birnbaum, PhD, former Director of the NIEHS/NTP (2009-2019), in an editorial published in Environmental Health News, Oct 7 2020.

 

Please put protecting our children above protecting an outdated practice

 

In summary, Dr. Walensky, we sincerely hope that the CDC under your new leadership will acknowledge the strong scientific evidence of fluoride’s neurotoxicity (and other health effects) and that you will put the welfare of our children and the overall health of our people at the forefront of the agency’s agenda.

 

Sincerely yours

“In late 2014, I developed a major health condition that resulted in disability. I was diagnosed with both Skeletal and non-Skeletal Fluorosis including but not limited to symptoms like major joint pain and inflammation, dizziness, Hypothyroidism, Brain fog, IBS and Fatigue. I was not able to perform daily tasks. After diagnosis, by avoiding city Fluoridated tab water and fluoridated dental products, my symptoms started to improve and after a few months of avoiding these sources I came out of disability. However, to this date, drinking a glass of fluoridated tap water or taking one shower with fluoridated tap water (at 0.7ppm) will trigger all the above-mentioned symptoms. Avoiding fluoride is extremely challenging. I cannot enjoy swimming in the community pool, going to a restaurant or dining at a friend’s house.”

“I have been a Dental Hygienist for 47 years.  I was taught at school that water fluoridation is very beneficial for the public.  I have since learned that fluoride is actually “hexafluorosilicic acid,” which is a toxic waste bi-product of the phosphate fertilizer industry. We were not taught the science about artificial water fluoridation.  We were not taught that fluoride (hexafluorosilicic acid) is a neurotoxin and no amount is safe. I do NOT want my children/grandchildren to be continually exposed to water fluoridation knowing that it can and will affect their minds and bodies.”
