CDC to Parents: Never Ever Use Fluoridated Tap Water to Make Baby Formula

Two questions are at the forefront of the latest flouride controversy:

1.  Have the benefits of fluoride been hyped for the past 5 decades?
2.  Are infants and toddlers at increased risk for tooth decay and brain damage when fluoridated tap water is used to make their baby formula?

In the past few days, researched has surfaced to confirm that the answer to both these questions are yes.

In November of 2006, the American Dental Association (ADA) sent out an email to alert its members of their recommendation to parents to not use fluoridated tap water to make infant formula. A few days later, the CDC followed suit.

But neither of them openly informed the public!  Why they didn't notify the public is still a mystery, but why have the ADA and CDC both advised parents not to use fluoridated tap water in formula?

Fluorosis, which causes white spots and streaks as well as tooth decay, was their main reason why, but other reasons include reduced IQ and brain damage.

Additionally, science has emerged proving that fluoride doesn't protect your teeth at all from decay.  

[The study] has uncovered that the fluorapatite layer formed on your teeth from fluoride is a mere six nanometers thick. To understand just how thin this is, you'd need 10,000 of these layers to get the width of a strand of your hair! Scientists now question whether this ultra-thin layer can actually protect your enamel and provide any discernible benefit, considering the fact that it is quickly eliminated by simple chewing.

Is the risk of brain damage and lowered IQ worth the 6 nanometers?
