Subject: BEST-K-02-05-A - Translated studies

Re: National Research Council Committee:
Toxicologic Risk of Fluoride in Drinking Water; BEST-K-02-05-A

Dear Susan Martell,

Last year I sent the Committee two submissions on fluoride’s effects on the brain(1) and male reproduction(2). In these submissions I cited the following 19 studies and suggested to the Committee that they be translated.

Have any of these published papers been translated? If they have, I would very much like to receive a copy of each translated paper.

Please tell me what I should do to expedite this request.
