Caries Preventative Already Has One Rap Against It
The NTP’s findings will make it difficult for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) not to classify fluoride a carcinogen, thereby terminating 40 years of public-water fluoridation in the United States.
Don’t Drink the Water? Brush your teeth, but the fluoride from your tap may not do much good — and may cause cancer
Government researchers have new evidence that casts doubt on the benefits of fluoridation and suggests that it is not without risk. The most incendiary results come from the National Toxicology Program (NTP), which in 1977 was ordered by Congress to determine whether fluoride causes cancer. This week NTP plans to release data showing that lab rats given fluoridated water had a higher rate of a rare bone cancer called osteosarcoma.
Fluoride Linked to Bone Cancer in Fed Study
Fluoride appears to have caused bone cancer in rodents in a recently completed National Toxicology Progran (NTP) study, and the chemical is now at risk of being classified a carcinogen, according to internal documents and statements obtained from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Harvard/Bone Cancer Files
Overview In 2005, the National Institute of Health (NIH) began an investigation into scientific misconduct at Harvard Dental School regarding an ongoing NIH-funded study on fluoride and osteosarcoma. The NIH launched the investigation following a request from the Environmental Working Group, which based its request on documents unearthed by FAN researcher Michael Connett. The documents suggested that Dr. Chester Douglass, a Colgate-affiliated advocate of […]
Fluoride & Bone Cancer: Is Harvard Professor Hiding a Link?
Did a Harvard dental professor, who moonlights as a consultant to Colgate, suppress evidence linking fluoride to bone cancer in children? To see the documents that sparked the investigation, as well as documents that FAN has since received under the Freedom of Information Act, click here.
Harvard’s Statement on Chester Douglass/Scientific Misconduct
Statement Concerning the Outcome of the Review into Allegations of Research Misconduct Involving Fluoride Research BOSTON-August 15, 2006-The Harvard Medical School and School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) review of Chester Douglass, DMD, PhD, professor of oral health policy and epidemiology at HSDM, has concluded that Douglass did not intentionally omit, misrepresent, or suppress research findings […]
According to the National Toxicology Program (NTP), “the preponderance of evidence” from laboratory studies indicates that fluoride is a mutagen (a compound that can cause genetic damage). A chemical that can cause genetic damage is one that can likely cause, or contribute to, the development of cancer. While the concentrations of fluoride causing genetic damage in laboratory studies […]
