Question Fluoride & Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spaces in the spine that results in pressure being placed on the spinal cord and/or nerve roots. Although stenosis can develop without symptoms, it may produce numbness, tingling, pain and difficulty in walking, as well as a heavy/tired feeling in the legs. It is estimated that 250,000 to 500,000 Americans currently have symptoms of spinal stenosis.

Skeletal fluorosis is one cause of stenosis. In the advanced stages of fluorosis, the spine may develop extensive ligament calcifications and bony spurs (resembling spondylosis) which can press up against the spinal cord. Among patients with skeletal fluorosis, the cervical region of the spine is the most common site for cord compression. Fluoride-induced stenosis has been reported in the thoracic region as well. In thoracic cases, the spine can be compressed as a result of OLF (“ossification of ligamentum flavum”). Recent research from China has found that patients with OLF had significantly elevated levels of fluoride in their bone, indicating fluoride may play a causative role in the disease, even where signs of skeletal fluorosis may not otherwise be apparent. (Wang 2008).
