Supporters of water fluoridation (Phillip Geary, Port News, 1 April) are fond of citing the opinion of generic “experts” and “professionals” as evidence of the goodness of fluoridation, much like the tobacco industry shamelessly cited “doctors” as supporting tobacco use.
As fluoridation is forced on us without consent, it is very worrying that the supporters of fluoridation seem absolutely unable to provide us with the scientific evidence on which their preferred opinions are supposedly based.
We invite anyone curious for better truth about this topic, to look on the internet at what is the pre-eminent fluoridation study available to date, namely the Cochrane Review (2015), which assessed all the relevant published research globally, since the beginning of fluoridation.
The Cochrane Review is without doubt the place to look.
The review’s ‘main’ and ‘key’ findings are very brief but very telling. They say fluoridation might reduce decay by just one cavity per child on average. But they confirmed there is no benefit to adults, no benefit to socio-economically deprived children, and that fluoride is directly causing increasing rates of damage to the teeth in the form of ‘dental fluorosis’.
To date, 58 studies including several multi-million, US-Government-funded studies, show that fluoridation chemicals damage the developing brain of the fetus infant and child.
That result is a very far cry from what fluoridation supporters would like us all to think, and hardly warrants blindly continuing to assume fluoridation is worth forcing on everyone.
