Fighting Fluoride

A few years ago, the U.S. EPA’s Office of Drinking Water commissioned the government's National Research Council to examine the toxicology of fluoride. Their 506 page report unflinchingly faces up to the health-damaging effects of fluoride in public water.

But 269 million Americans out of a population of 304 million (88.5 percent) still get their water from public water systems, and 196 million (72.4 percent) drink, bathe and wash their clothes with fluoridated water. Promoters of fluoridation are even now pushing for mandatory statewide fluoridation in various states. Nonetheless, there is growing evidence that shows fluoride damages health.

Writing for Lew Rockwell, Dr. Donald Miller points out:

“The [National Research Council] panel concluded that the EPA's maximum and secondary maximum contaminant level goals for fluoride ... are ‘not protective of public health,’ particularly with regard to three things: dental fluorosis; skeletal fluorosis, which causes chronic joint pain and arthritis imitating osteoarthritis; and fractures ... Four years have elapsed since the NRC recommended that the EPA carry out more studies ... So far nothing has been done.”

And why is that? Because, according to Dr. Joel Kauffman, writing in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons:

“Proponents of fluoridation have censored most media, ignored intelligent discussion of fluoridation, slandered most opponents of fluoridation, and overturned legal judgments against fluoridation in a manner that demonstrates their political power.”
