Why Dr. Weil Is Dead Wrong About Fluoride

dr-weil-wrong

I have to admit, I found this to be truly shocking.

Here’s what happened. I have received emails from several Savers regarding Dr. Andrew Weil’s differing opinion on fluoride. While I respect him for being an advocate of natural health and commend him for doing a lot of good, I vehemently disagree with his stance on fluoride.

The dangers of fluoride ingestion are scientifically backed. It’s a fact, not hearsay, that fluoride harms your bones and your health.

So I am surprised that Dr. Weil continues to recommend using fluoride as a ‘healthy’ additive to water and toothpaste.

He has even gone so far as to say that “concerns about fluoride are overblown.”1

Nothing could be further from the truth. If anything, we’re not sounding enough of an alarm.

Dr. Weil Refuses To Accept Evidence That Fluoride Is Harmful

In a 2002 Q&A, Dr. Weil addressed the issue of drinking fluoride. He claimed that the addition of fluoride to the public water supply prevents tooth decay. He even went so far as to blame bottled water for increasing the risk of cavities in children, and recommended using fluoride-containing toothpaste.

But the evidence clearly refutes these claims.

First of all, fluoride is toxic, period. It is the nature of the substance; drinking more may increase the toxic effects, but it doesn’t make it more or less toxic in nature.

Secondly, adding fluoride to municipal water systems does not actually prevent tooth decay. In fact, the opposite is true. (I’ll explain in more detail later.)

Thirdly, fluoride in toothpaste is just one more source of exposure to this harmful substance. Some swallowing of toothpaste is inevitable, and moreover, the mucous membranes of your mouth are capable of absorbing materials directly into the bloodstream.

Even the mainstream media has caught on to the dangers of fluoride, publicly calling into question the practice of adding fluoride to the public water supply.

In 2009, Dr. Weil was asked again about fluoride, and he declared that his views had not changed despite new evidence that fluoride was shown to cause cancer in dogs and bone cancer in children.

Fluoride Is So Dangerous That I Regularly Warn Savers Against It

I think it’s so important to get the word out about fluoride that I wrote The Missing Link, a report on the dangers of fluoride in drinking water. This detailed report is included free with the Save Our Bones Program, because I felt it was crucial to inform Savers of the detrimental effects of fluoride on bone health and overall health.

Evidence-Backed Science: Fluoride Is Detrimental To Bone Health

Here are some of the scientific facts that will help elucidate why Dr. Weil is wrong.

Fluoride weakens bone and increases fracture rates. As far back as 1975, studies show that the experimental use of fluoride to treat osteoporosis destroys bone integrity and strength. Vertebral, pelvic, and femoral fractures were the most commonly reported types in the studies, and many of the fractures were spontaneous (without any actual trauma to the bone).

“…fluoride treatment can increase the risk of hip fracture in osteoporotic women,”2 a 1989 study concluded.

And in 2002 (the same year Dr. Weil first announced his pro-fluoride stance), another study observed that “Vertebral fracture rates and peripheral bone density changes…demonstrate that NaF administration is capable of increasing vertebral fracture rates and of increasing peripheral (nonspinal) bone loss.”3

There have been countless studies on fluoride showing the same trend of weakened bones and increased fracture rates between 1975 and 2002.

Ready For This? Fluoride Is Not Even Good For Teeth!

It amazed me to learn that way back in 1957, Konstatin K. Paluev, an engineer of research and development, gave a presentation that exposed the falsehood of the the claim that fluoridated tap water reduces dental decay by 65%. Paluev declared this a “statistical illusion,”4 because it was based on very young children whose teeth had not even come in! The original investigators claimed non-existent teeth as cavity-free teeth.

And once the children who were observed in the original investigation actually got their teeth (the fluoride itself may have caused a delay in tooth eruption), the rate of cavities was the same as those in non-fluoridated areas.

Very devious, but unfortunately, the notion that fluoride in tap water prevents cavities is persistent among the majority.

Evidence against compulsory fluoride exposure goes back even further. In 1937 (yes, you read that right!) a study was published showing a connection between the incidence of dental cavities and low Vitamin D levels.5

Researchers observed that the incidence of cavities rose in the winter and fell in the summer, and…

…“The marked effect of vitamin D, however, together with observations on the effect of season and exposure to ultraviolet light lend much support to the thought that the calcium-phosphorus-vitamin D interrelationship plays a specific role in processes of tooth growth and preservation.”5

Considering that the FDA classifies fluoridated toothpaste as a drug, this is yet one more piece of evidence that nutrition, not drugs, are what leads to optimal dental, bone, and overall health.

Last But Not Least, Fluoride Is Extremely Harmful To Your Overall Health

When I wrote the Save Our Bones Program, I recognized the importance of a whole-body, whole-person approach. A healthy body is vital for building strong bones, and fluoride undermines some very important body systems.

  • Kidney health is greatly damaged by fluoride. “…fluoride should be given at a lower dosage, if at all, to patients with even mild renal failure,”6 concludes a 1983 study. Savers know that healthy kidneys are critical for maintaining and building bone, because they are major detoxification organs.
  • Research has shown that fluoride causes gastrointestinal problems ranging from nausea, vomiting, dyspepsia, and abdominal pain to internal hemorrhage.7,8
  • Decreased mental capacity and diminished IQ in children have been traced to fluoride ingestion, according to a well-known Harvard meta-analysis involving 27 studies. What I find most disturbing about this is that the amount of fluoride in the studies was equivalent to what average tap water-drinkers ingest on a regular basis.

    For example, in seven of the studies, the amount of fluoride ingested was between 2.1mg per liter and 4mg per liter (this is what 1.4 Americans drink every day in their tap water).

    The Harvard researchers noted a study showing reduced IQ in children who drank water with a mere .88mg per liter, the “optimal” fluoride level added to the tap water of more than 200 million Americans.

  • Slow thyroid (hypothyroidism) has been linked to fluoride ingestion, and like the reduced IQ studies, research has shown reduced thyroid activity at relatively low levels – 2 milligrams of fluoride a day.9 But drinking fluoridated tap water can mean you’re ingesting more than 6 milligrams a day.

I mentioned above that the FDA actually classifies fluoride toothpaste as a medication. Isn’t it appalling that drinking tap water means you’re ingesting medication without your consent!

Avoiding Tap Water Is Crucial

Regardless of what Dr. Weil and others may say about fluoridated tap water, I firmly maintain that it’s a bad idea. Distilled water with a few drop of lemon juice is the purest, most bone-healthy form of water that you can drink.

If you want to avoid hauling heavy containers home from the store, I encourage you to consider the Waterwise 8800. It’s a countertop distiller that I use in my own home, and I am absolutely delighted with the results.

And if you haven’t yet, I encourage you to learn more about the Save Our Bones Program which goes way beyond just fluoride and tap water. It will become your ultimate resource and step-by-step ‘how-to’ guide on how to rebuild your bones naturally and scientifically. It is my unwavering conviction that arming yourself with scientifically-backed knowledge is vitally important to your bone health. That’s one of my major motivations here with Save Our Bones.

One Final Thought On Fluoride

When I recently visited southern Colorado for a few days, it was hummingbird season. So I decided to put out a feeder with some nectar to attract these beautiful birds. When I read the label on the nectar bottle, I realized that it made a curious claim.

See it for yourself – here’s the picture of the bottle I got. Look at the text below the white arrow:

So at least we can rest assured that the hummingbirds won’t be consuming fluoride!

Your friend,

    Tom’s of Maine makes some toothpastes w/o fluoride.
    You may need to look in the section where kids toothpastes are located. I found some at Whole Foods.

    A chemist (Dr. Judd?) said glycerin will prevent the teeth from re-mineralizing and probably ALL toothpastes and most tooth powders contain it.

    Not sure. Most of the time I just use water, with toothpaste some times.

    I had baking soda cause a white filling on a front tooth to discolor and fall off so won’t use that again. My dentist did not think the baking soda caused it. The filling was FINE until I used baking soda, though.

  2. Abigail August 25, 2014, 9:41 pm

    Hi V, thank you for caring for people and for us, your dear friends. I do not believe most of what that doctor talks about, and he is so dead wrong about fluoride. For a very long time, I stopped using that poison. I use a little baking soda occasionally, but most of the time, I use a tiny bit of golden seal. A few times I did get a natural toothpaste to buy, but that is an item that is not always available in the health food store in this Island. You are always a winner, and the good you do, will come back to you, so thanks for sharing as you always do, and thanks for personally being a blessing to me. In time to come, I will get the recipes. God bless.

    Good afternoon Vivian,
    Thank you very much for sharing this excellent
    information regarding fluoride.
    I purchased three weeks ago my first gluten and
    fluoride free toothpaste (spearmint) made in Canada.
    A 100% natural toothpaste with stevia, aerobic oxygen,
    and tea tree oil and others.
    Have a wonderful day and take care always.

        Enjoy!

        • EsterH August 24, 2014, 10:50 pm

          Marlene Villar, thank you for posting the website URL. Unfortunately, in the recent past I took a calcium supplement which contained an inorganic form of calcium–calcium carbonate. I am on a mission to avoid this “rock” which is added to lots of foods, beverages, and supplements, etc. So I read labels a bit more diligently now. I noticed one of the ingredients in this toothpaste is calcium carbonate so I will have to pass on this product. Please see Vivian’s article on Calcium: 7 Facts You Didn’t Know About Calcium, especially point #7. Here is the link for the article

    Good Evening Vivian And Everyone,

    I Want To Thank You All Very Much For Your Input On The Hazards Of Using Fluoride. It Was A Very Interesting Article.
    I’m Trying To Get Away From Using Fluoride Toothpaste, But My Significant Other Thinks What Ever The Dentist Tell Him Is The Truth. And Won’t Change His Ways. I Guess I’ll Just Have To Get Separate Toothpaste From Him.

    Vivian Please Keep Up Your Valuable Research. And Thank You Again For All You Do!

    LOVE TO YOU ALL,
    LESLIE (MS. L. CARMEL)

    Did you check to see what is used for coloring? Did you know just a simple solution of 1 cup sugar and 4 cup water…store extra in refrigerator, is the safest for hummingbirds? Do not use red. Hummingbirds are very smart and will recognize the food. You can also get red feeders rather than using that possibly toxic food.

  6. naseem August 22, 2014, 4:18 am

    Vivian, what do you recommend one should use to brush your teeth? What kind of non-fluoride toothpastes are available and recommended?
    Thanks for your input.

    • Marianne August 22, 2014, 12:26 pm

      Hi Naseem,

      Have you ever heard of oil pulling? it is an ancient ayurvedic technique used to heel bleeding gums, whiten teeth, and is over-all great for the health of the mouth and body. There are many great books and websites that talk about oil pulling and natural dentistry. Check out Nadine Artemis’ Holistic Dental Care: The Complete Guide to Healthy Teeth and Gums. I also recommend Dr. Mark Breiner’s Whole-Body Dentistry: A Complete Guide to Understanding the Impact of Dentistry on Total Health. If you all are really interested, check out the work of Weston A. Price, DDS.

      In my opinion and experience, dental care is very related to osteoporosis and osteopenia because if our bones are weak in the body, they are probably going to be weak in the mouth. I got “leaky gut” or intestinal permeability from being told by several doctors and physical therapists to keep taking Mobic, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, for way too long, and it did a number on my body. I subsequently found out that NSAIDS are truly poison, they stop your body from healing-especially the cartilage, and should not be taken on a regular basis. I went from osteopenia to osteoporosis in a short amount of time, even though I was taking Fosamax for 7 years, and no one asked “why.” They just wanted to put me on Reclast. That is when I said “No way” and started doing my own research. I found Vivian and several wonderful books like The Myth of Osteoporosis, and I started working with a naturopath/integrative medicine doc who asked “why.” I also avoided having to have my very severely arthritic hip replaced by doing prolotherapy. Again, no one in conventional medicine asked why I went from no sign of arthritis in 2007 to moderately severe arthritis in 2009. Vivian, your website is fantastic! :-) Thank you for informing us!

      • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA August 22, 2014, 3:28 pm

        Marianne, that is an incredible story, and I could not agree more about the NSAIDs!

  7. Romeo Madrid August 22, 2014, 12:45 am

    Dear Vivian,
    I am one of those people who admire and support your international cause. I admire your boldness with ample humility in answering and refuting wrong information as well as biased and unreliable research. Even if you are vehemently against an issue, you are still confidently and repectably cool in your choice of words.
    You also had a very good conclusion by mentioning the nectar bottle that supports the health o even these innocent hummingbird.
    Respectfully yours,
    Romy Madrid

  8. Marianne August 21, 2014, 8:09 pm

    Thank you for a very informative article, Vivian! Misinformation is a huge problem in the world today, and thankfully, there are people like you whose mission is to clear up the confusion. So glad that you can undo some of the damage that the Dr. Oz Show is doing to people. I was appalled when he recommended lap band surgery to obese people who supposedly had failed to lose weight numerous times. No mention of why they failed to lose weight. I suggested that they try Dr. Fuhrman or Dr. Hyman’s approach. The point being, his show has to get commercial sponsorship and is not always within his control. Also, Dr. Weil, while promoting “holistic” or “alterative” medicine, he is basically still under the conventional allopathic medical model most of the time. He just seems to know more about herbs and botanical medicine than most doctors.

    Besides fluoride, we still need to get dental professionals to get rid of the mercury ( and know how to do it when needed). My dental assistant told me last time that she has “done a lot of reading and there really is no problem with mercury.” That was very scary! She has gall bladder disease; mercury reportedly poisons the gall bladder.

    Vivian, thanks again for all of the great work that you do!

    P.S. Dr. Michael Murray, a wonderful naturopathic physician, did a telomere webinar last night in which he said he is “not a big fan of bisphosphonates” and “bone density is overrated,” and the focus should be on “the organic protein matrix of the bone” meaning the collagen and connective tissue which makes up 40% of the bone, like the 2 by 4’s holding up a house. He would love this program, Vivian!

    • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA August 22, 2014, 7:32 am

      Marianne, thank you for sharing your informative opinion! You are definitely asking the right questions and unafraid to find information for yourself. Keep it up! :)

  9. su August 21, 2014, 2:17 pm

    I have purchased and use many of your suggestions and have encouraged my friends to follow your ideas too!

    On this issue of non-fluoride toothpaste, unfortunately I have a bone to pick with you!!

    Some months ago, I started using non-fluoride toothpaste. BUT, lo and behold, within a few months, I have developed decay, a breakage, etc. In all my life, (60 odd yrs) never had a dental problem!

    I went back to my fluoride toothpaste. Maybe it is too late!

    • Bob , Retired Nurse August 22, 2014, 10:02 am

      I too have broken teeth . But they come from many many years of dentists drilling big holes because that was the only way they knew how to get rid of the diseased parts of the tooth. This last 20 years we have carbon block filter which filters our 99.5% of impurities But because Fluoride has a very small molecule . smaller than some minerals. It goes through the filter. So I have a 2nd filter with special mountain stones which absorb Fluoride. laboratory tested . I use fluoride free tooth paste for many years. It was just a coincidence you teeth had problems . ### The Fluoride in Tap water is Fluorosilicic acid. a by product of the fertilizer and aluminium industries. The fluoride found in the ground in very small amounts and is “Calcium fluoride” and it binds Phosphorus and Calcium together. The benefit to teeth for this would be more due to the calcium . But community surveys found the benefits were very small. In Australia the dentists started lining the natural deep fissures in childrens teeth with silicone. which prevented food being stuck in there so reduced caries. as the child grew the fissures grew more shallow and the silicone was broken out by chewing. But they could brush properly by then ..

      • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA August 22, 2014, 3:25 pm

        Fascinating, Bob! Thank you for your insights.

    • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA August 22, 2014, 7:30 am

      I am sorry you experienced those dental issues, Su! They could have been caused by any number of factors. I hope your teeth are on the mend and that you’re free of pain!

    • liz August 21, 2014, 11:24 pm

      I have been avoiding fluoride for at least three years and my dentist is impressed with the good checkups I have. Maybe you have not given it enough time. Remember with all the years we have been putting poison into our bodies it will take longer than two or three months to correct the problem. I have been on Vivian’s program for three years plus and have all the confidence in the world in her teachings. I know without a doubt that I am a more healthy person by following her plan.

  10. Lic August 21, 2014, 12:32 pm

    So often fame distorts one’s opinion. I never liked the hyped attitude of both Dr Oz nor Dr Weil.
    Pride precedes a fall. Humility is a great quality to be seeked when looking for the truth in science.

  11. Sandi August 21, 2014, 10:28 am

    I agree with you on Dr. Weil’s support of fluoridated water. He was on Dr. Oz a few days ago saying the same things (re-run show) and Dr. Oz who’s wife is a pro on these topics never challenged him so, that’s 2 doctors I’m not thrilled with right now! Why not teach all children good dental practices and would keep the population from a lifetime of ingesting fluoride?

    Fluorosilicic acid is a liquid by-product of phosphate fertilizer manufacture is the most commonly use (from Fluoridation wiki). Why are we allowing people to drink a by- product of phosphate fertilizer for 70-90+ years?

    I made sure my 2 boys brushed twice a day and one had zero cavities until he was a senior in college and the other one has 1 and he’s 25. Both wore braces and managed to brush their teeth throughout as well.

    They claim that it’s low income children who need fluoridated water. Low income familes can monitor their children’s brushing, it’s not that difficult for them to understand the correlation. My dentist said it’s the soda drinking people who have the most cavities. So, to support Coke, Pepsi, etc. companies, everyone has to drink fluoride every day for the rest of their lives whether they like it or not?

    I’m buying Whole Foods RO spring water at .99cents a gallon. We’re using it for drinking as well as cooking for now. Luckily, we’re empty nesters so, it’s doable. I don’t mind carrying the bottles from the store to home, I just see it as weight bearing for my bones!

    The 8800 system looks interesting. I used an RO system for years but it required buying expensive replacement filters and did not take out the fluoride.

    • Bob Retired Nurse August 22, 2014, 10:13 am

      Only 3 filters take out fluoride. :1. Reverse osmosis “Takes out all the beneficial minerals too.” 1, Certain mountain stones have an absorbing quality and can absorb fluoride. #3,Distillation .”takes out minerals too” Carbon block multi stage filters are excellent for 99.5% of impurities but fluoride has a very small molecule smaller than many minerals. so it gets through the carbon . … RO: .. should be able to use ceramic and reverse flush it to clean it. the same ceramic plate lasts forever. no replacement filter for those.

  12. linda August 21, 2014, 10:24 am

    These are the very people you trust and believe. People use their titles and fame to promote propaganda. It is financially lucrative for Dr. Weils’ and Dr. Oz to be on national TV to promote the use of fluoride. Shame on us as a race of supposedly intelligent free thinking humans. The majority of people in this world do not know how to think, evaluate and processes information for them selves. The general population are so busy living in a fantasy world that they truly believe the wealthy really care about them. We are all volunteer slaves to cooperate wealth. It is time to wake up! There is a fortune to made from unhealthy people not well ones. We are dispensable and replaceable. I do not think the wealthy ever cared about well being of their slaves and that is a fact.

  13. Julia Pierce August 21, 2014, 9:48 am

    Just this week, when I was at the dentist for a teeth cleaning, I had to remind them AGAIN, that I did not want a fluoride treatment. When the Dr. came in, to check my mouth, he said “I understand you do not use fluoride”. “That’s right” was my reply, “and I would appreciate it if you would mark my chart so I don’t have to explain myself each time”. This is the 3rd dentist I have had in the last 15 years, and each one has pushed the fluoride treatment. I, however, (with some thanks to you, Vivian) and sticking to what I have learned and believe.

    • Cindy August 21, 2014, 10:41 pm

      Kudos! I kept looking until I found a holistic dentist and am so glad I did. He’s very active in trying to alert his patients to the danger of fluoride. I find it such a shame that people like Weil have failed to keep up with the studies after making their reputation on how awake and aware they are supposed to be. Thanks, Vivian, for this article.

      • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA August 22, 2014, 7:32 am

        That’s great, Cindy! Holistic dentists can be hard to find. That’s fantastic that you discovered a dentist who shares your views!

    • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA August 21, 2014, 10:22 am

      Good for you, Julia! I admire your confidence. :)

      • linda August 21, 2014, 10:30 am

        It is good to hear that there are people whom stand for what they believe. I have and never will use fluoride not even in my tooth paste.

  14. Charlotte August 21, 2014, 9:37 am

    Vivian,

    I wholeheartedly agree with you and I am also surprised at Dr. Weil! I also thought he was smarter than that. Dr. Oz has been called out on other issues as well so it goes to show you that the experts are not always that. I believe that it is easier for people to believe what a Doctor tells them, after all the Docotrs should know what they are talking about! The fact is most Doctors do not have time to read all the research out there. They are too busy to stay up to date on every issue. It is up to us as Savers to get the word out and I try every day. Thank you for all your valuable research and information. I know you cannot always believe everything on the internet but I have found your information to be right on.
    Keep up the research so we can remain informed consumers.

    Charlotte

    • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA August 21, 2014, 10:23 am

    What about reverse osmosis water? When in Florida we buy 25c a gallon out of a machine. The tap water in Florida tastes awful.!

    • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA August 21, 2014, 10:23 am

      Reverse osmosis is a healthful option too, Rosemarie. :)

  16. Ineke August 21, 2014, 8:56 am

    Thanks again Vivian for the correct information. I got your message about the dangers of flouride some time ago and did a bit of research myself. There is as much information about the harmful effects as there is about its supposed benefit. We have been distilling our water for quiet a while now, I even take my own water to work and love the clean taste. Your comment about the link between hypothyroidism and flouride is very interesting. I would love to hear that a lack of flouride can help to reverse the thyroid disease, any news on that please.
    Regards
    Ineke from Australia.

  17. L.D. August 21, 2014, 6:29 am

    Good Day Everyone, I saw Dr. Weil on Dr. Oz a few days ago and was shocked when he touted the good things about Fluoride. One thing for everyone in our community to remember is, “Don’t believe every word you hear even from alleged experts”. The medical profession have often been deceived right along with us. Some folks will buy whatever television is selling. Just think of all the poisonous foods advertised for hours on end everyday. Gee, and they wonder why 65% of the US are overweight or, obese with horrible health problems.. Some Savers challenge Vivian at times and I believe she doesn’t mind at all. If we question and ask, we will get the answers we need. Thanks Vivian, I believed what he said was a crock, and happy you agree. Have a great day everyone…

    • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA August 21, 2014, 9:09 am

      Thanks for your feedback, L.D. This is why I research relentlessly – it’s sometimes hard to hear the truth with all the “expert” distraction! ;)

  18. Trudy August 21, 2014, 5:34 am

    Hi Vivian
    I wished your article would be published in Australia where we are exposed to fluoride in our drinking water. The medical ‘experts’ claim that is essential in order to improve dental health! They quote statistics from certain towns where dental health has supposedly drastically increased since fluoride was introduced into drinking/tap water. No mention, of course, about the detrimental ‘side effects’, the impact on bones, general health etc. How come that educated people – doctors, dentists etc. – can be so ‘blind’, ignoring the facts?!
    Don’t they do any research and accept the findings?! I am shocked by this kind of ignorance!!!! They seem to have the monopoly of wisdom.
    Thanks, Vivian, for your great work; it’s greatly appreciated.
    Kindest regards from Australia where I try to spread your message

      SIGH !!!! The Drug companies came in about 90 years ago. They hold a very strong hold over allopathic medicine with propaganda. we had a new drug her in Australia 18 months ago that was making people sick . The Drug company commissioned a clinical trial by a private company with the secret issue. ” Make sure you find in our favour.” it came out later. The same with Fluoride . Waste product . Just happened That an ex: from a fertilizer company was having golf with a friend a doctor. Told Him about the huge wast product from the ore they melted to extract the minerals. How to get rid of it. ?? one of them had an idea . Is it useful in medicine. He remembered scientists in a western state of US were analysing ground minerals. found Calcium Fluoride actually bound Calcium and Phosphorus together. which are good minerals. So the put a submission to government with a lot of exaggerations and falsities it. it. so the first city had SODIUM fluoride added to their water. The waste product also had other waste chemicals in it. ..I believe Hitler put it in the water to the general population . Much higher amounts. But the elite had clean drinking water. ??

      I know it’s frustrating, Trudy, but thankfully this information is available all over the world thanks to the internet! :) I hope some of the “educated people” you mentioned will educate themselves with the truth about fluoride!
