Because of the large increase in dental fluorosis (41% of teenagers), HHS says that water fluoride levels should be lowered to not exceed 0.7 mg/L (most California communities use a range between 0.7 – 1.5 mg/L).

Fluorosis Warnings For Infants
Infant formula fluoride warnings have finally hit the Bay Area! Members of Clean Water California were successful in convincing San Francisco and East Bay water municipalities to add a fluorosis warning to annual water quality statements.

Last March hundreds of our supporters from across the Bay Area gathered to March and Rally to End Water Fluoridation practices in California. We are deeply grateful to the expert leadership that joined us at the March and Rally in San Francisco.
Many thanks to Michael Connett (Fluoride Action Network), Dr. Richard Kunin (Society for Orthomolecular Health Medicine), Bill Osmunson, MPH, DDS, Arlene Goetze (No Toxins for Children), Dawna Gallagher (Clean Water Sonoma-Marin), Henry Rodriguez (LULAC), Jacques Durant (Sierra Club), and Michael LeVesque (Vitamin Express). Thank you to everyone who came out and made the event such a success.
Now we need to keep our momentum front and center and continue to educate and empower local residents about the risk of fluoride in our drinking water.
We will be rolling out our plans for the remainder of the year and encouraging everyone to step up and take on a role in our campaign to end the toxic practice of fluoridation in California.
Our goal of ending fluoridation in California is actionable and realizable. We appreciate your ongoing support and a DONATION of any size will help us educate and empower more Californians.Read more
