Flouride- do the risks outweigh the purported benefits?

A new study has found that the protective shield fluoride forms on teeth is up to 100 times thinner than previously believed. This raises questions about how this purported cavity fighter really works.

It has long been believed that fluoride changes the main mineral in tooth enamel, hydroxyapatite, into a more-decay resistant material called fluorapatite. New research however, has found that the fluorapatite layer formed in this way is only 6 nanometers thick, meaning it would take almost 10,000 such layers to span the width of a human hai, leaving the scientists question;

"whether a layer so thin, which is quickly worn away by ordinary chewing, really can shield teeth from decay".

Another new study shows that exposure to fluoride may lower children's intelligence.

"About 28 percent of the children in the low-fluoride area scored as bright, normal or higher intelligence compared to only 8 percent in the 'high' fluoride area ... in the high-fluoride city, 15 percent had scores indicating mental retardation and only 6 percent in the low-fluoride city."
