Help needed on worldwide survey of fluoridation
Dear All, In view of the fact that the American Dental Association, despite its very deep pockets and large staff, is unable to do an accurate assessment of the fluoridation status of countries worldwide, we with our miniscule budget and no staff, would like to attempt to get the record straight. But we need your […]International
Fluoridation: Key Moments in Ending an Indefensible Practice
As we have reached IFIN #600, and it is a Sunday, I thought it would be an appropriate time for a little reflection. Here is a short essay. Paul Connett ———————————————————————— FLUORIDATION: KEY MOMENTS IN ENDING AN INDEFENSIBLE PRACTICE. There have been many important moments in the long battle to end water fluoridation: the practice […]International
Anti-Fluoridation Worldwide – Update
Dear All, While this battle at times seems overwhelming, it is useful to take stock how far we have come over the last few years. Michael (webmaster for the Fluoride Action Network webpage http://www.fluoridealert.org) has been reviewing recent fluoridation campaign activities around the world and prepared the following list of events. With so much going […]International

Fluoride in drinking water increases the risk of hip fracture in women
NEW YORK, PRNewswire/ — Fluoride in drinking water increases the risk of hip fractures in women, according to an October 1999 American Journal of Epidemiology study. This corroborates several studies revealing a positive fluoride/hip fracture association. Furthermore, other studies dismissing a fluoride/fracture link may be flawed because they weren’t gender or hip-fracture specific, report authors […]International
ALCOA Warns of Cancer Risk
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Aluminum manufacturer Alcoa is warning thousands of past and present employees that they may face a greater risk than previously believed of developing lung or bladder cancer. Recent industry studies, including one by Canadian aluminum producer Alcan, found that exposure to coal tar pitch used in aluminum-smelting may be more likely to […]International Aluminum Industry
Defluoridation of drinking water with pottery: effect of firing temperature.
Abstract Excessive fluoride (F) in drinking water should be removed, but simple, inexpensive methods of fluoride removal are not readily available. This study examines the F(-)-binding capacity of clay and clayware, especially the effect of the firing temperature on the F(-)-binding process. A series of pots were made from ordinary potter’s clay and fired at […]International Water Treatment
Aluminium phosphate for the defluorination of potable water
Abstract In this paper, a new method for the defluoration of potable water is described. In the proposed method, aluminium phosphate is used as a matrix of the stationary phase which can adsorb fluorides or exchange with fluorides selectively and reduce the concentration of fluorides in natural water to an allowable level. We have repeated […]International Water Treatment
Aluminium and fluoride in the water supply and their removal for haemodialysis.
Abstract Aluminium and fluoride in the water supply and their removal for haemodialysis have been investigated in the Trent Region, U.K., and wide variations noted. The efficiency of removal of these elements from the mains water supplying home haemodialysis units by different water treatment systems currently installed has been assessed and a follow-up study performed […]International Water Treatment
