Is Baby Water with Fluoride Safe for Infants?

Fluoridated water is allegedly good for teeth. However, the US government has recently warned that fluoride levels might be too high for public water (source: Wall Street Journal). Backed by a strong fluoride-free grassroots lobby, holistic dentists from across America are speaking out against the dangers of fluoridated water. The fluoride debate has garnered greater attention recently after the US Court of Appeals agreed to hear oral arguments in the Nymphos vs. Nestle case. Ms Nymphos claims Nestle is responsible for her daughter’s permanently discolored teeth (a condition known as fluorosis). Ms. Nymphos alleges her daughter developed fluorosis after drinking Nestle Baby water for many years, a product the company openly markets as a highly fluoridated water designed to improve children’s teeth and oral health.
