NEW YORK, Feb. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The federal government has proposed that water fluoride levels be lowered to 0.7 parts per million to stem the growing incidence of dental fluorosis (discolored and/or pitted teeth), which now affects 41% of adolescents ages 12-15.

Its researchers found that about half of all children in fluoridated areas have dental and sometimes skeletal fluorosis, much of it "worrying."
