Fluoride Concerns Finally Taken Seriously

Dr Mercola
Open, honest debate is crucial to furthering knowledge, resolving controversies and moving forward on important questions of public interest............................................

9. Journal Article Calls for Prohibition of Fluoridation
The Scientific World Journal published a review article by Dr. Stephen Peckham and Dr. Niyi Awofeso titled, "Water Fluoridation: A Critical Review of the Physiological Effects of Ingested Fluoride as a Public Health Intervention."
According to the authors, "Available evidence suggests that fluoride has a potential to cause major adverse human health problems, while having only a modest dental caries prevention effect. As part of efforts to reduce hazardous fluoride ingestion, the practice of artificial water fluoridation should be reconsidered globally, while industrial safety measures need to be tightened in order to reduce unethical discharge of fluoride compounds into the environment… coordinated global efforts to reduce adverse human health effects on fluoride need to start with ensuring that its introduction into water supplies is prohibited."
Additionally, in May 2014 the Irish Medical News published an excellent letter from Dr. Neville Wilson of the Leinster Clinic in Maynooth, titled, "We Must Question Mass Medication Without 'Benefit." In this letter Dr. Wilson asks a question that is being ignored by many thousands of doctors in the US and other fluoridated countries:
"Where is the physician who will impose a lifelong prescription for an untested potentially toxic substance, without proven clinical benefit, on a patient he/she has never met, interviewed or examined? Such dubious behavior would extract appropriate censure from the licensing authority of the physician involved, on the basis that it is unscientific, unscrupulous, unethical, and therefore unacceptable."

Water Fluoridation Is the Height of Arrogance

Retired Chemistry Professor Paul Connett, director of the Fluoride Action Network, has made a strong case for why dentistry should be done in the dental office… not via your water supply. He stated:10
"Organized dentistry, which includes the American Dental Association, the Oral Health Division of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state dental directors, is the only health profession that seeks to deliver its services via the public's water supply. The practice of artificial water fluoridation is the height of arrogance when one considers the following undisputed facts and scientifically supported arguments."
Dr. Connett, who co-authored the book The Case Against Fluoride, is recognized worldwide as a leader in the movement to eliminate fluoride from municipal water supplies, and I'm pleased to be working with him to achieve this goal. He recently compiled a comprehensive and eye-opening list of reasons why water fluoridation must be challenged. Here are some of the highlights:11
