Researchers Uncovering Mechanisms Behind Fluoride's
For Further Information Contact
Fluoride, the "Golden Child" of dental professionals around
the world, seems to have a "dark side" that few outside a very specialized field
of the scientific community are aware of. As disturbing as it may be, fluoride
apparently has the ability to cause DNA damage and even "cell death" to human
In a new study, researchers from the National Institute for
Environmental Studies in Japan note that "Even though fluoride toxicity is
increasingly being considered to be important, very little information is
available on the mechanism of action of fluoride."
Lead researcher Dr. C. Anuradha, in comments to the Optimal
Wellness Center, explains that "fluoride in general is harmful to any type of
cell. We have seen that fluoride causes cell death in other non-cancerous cells
but however the mode of death has been found to be different."
