Ingesting fluoride over long periods of time could damage one’s health, especially the nervous system, according to a study published in Neurologia.
This study enhances the case of the New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation. Still, this information is not viewed as fact by all people who study fluoride.
Based on this study, children should avoid toothpaste that contains fluoride because children are more susceptible to the possible harmful effects than adults are. The information also indicates that the harm could take as many as two decades or longer to take effect.
