We know that many New Zealand children are receiving a toxic dose. At least 30% of children in fluoridated areas have some form of dental fluorosis. This is seen as white spots or disclouration of the teeth.
This is the first outward sign of fluoride poisoning. This is similar to the thin blue line on the gum (Burton’s Line) which signals lead or other heavy metal over-exposure or poisoning. It is medically negligent for fluoridation promoters to dismiss this serious side effect as merely “cosmetic.”
