Why do people still consume and brush with fluoride when ADA and CDC advise against it?
Just because the FDA and dentist said so does not mean they are right.
They are a business, not all dentists are here to honestly care for their customers. Fluorosis infected patients bring in money, and thats what there here for. Even then, most customer caring dentists only practice what they are taught, not actually go and validate this info they were told even though they do not mean to harm their patients.
Btw FDA approves synthetic food coloring and preservatives in our food yet it is cumulatively toxic. How can you trust them?
Having your doubts now?

Um, the ADA DOES recommend using fluoridated toothpaste and drinking fluoridated water. The CDC does as well.
I have personally seen a very few--single digits only-- number of people who have had fluorosis in my years as a dentist. It is very rare when the water is at 0.7ppm (parts per million) fluoride which is the recommendation.
edit: "T" is hilarious. All of those compounds have oxygen in it too. We should ban oxygen! Seriously, take a chemistry class.

Water fluoridation began in 1945 and continues today despite the fact that it has never been FDA approved.
Sodium fluoride was sold before FDA safety and effectiveness testing laws were enacted in 1938 and 1962, respectively. So fluoride was exempt from scrutiny, or "grandfathered in," without any FDA human or animal studies. "The premise was that all pre-1938 drugs were considered safe," according to FDA correspondence.
The FDA has made plenty of bad decisions regarding our safety should they be blindly trusted?
Baycol, the drug that was pulled off the market because of muscle degeneration, is a fluoride product, Fen-Phen, the diet drug that got pulled of the market, the fluoride in it is what created the thickening of the heart valve. Rohypnol, the date-rape drug, is a fluoride product.

In Hawaii the drinking water are fluoride treated. No complaint nor anybody got sick, That is their conclusion, but the toothpaste w/ fluoride are still on the market., they are good in cleaning your teeth. That is the purpose in HI, when you drink water it cleans your teeth and mouth. Remember HI is an island and a state.

Because they don't know how harmful it really is, it calcifies the pineal gland.
