50 reasons to oppose fluoridation

Dr. Paul Connet, Ph.D. of St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY offers 50 reasons to oppose fluoridation as listed below and the statements are slightly edited.

1.  Humans don’t need fluoride to have good teeth;

2.  Fluoridation is unnecessary. Most Western European countries are not fluoridated and they have experienced the same decline in dental decay as the U.S. where a majority of cities are fluoridated;

3.  Fluoridation’s role in the decline of tooth decay is in serious doubt;

4.  Where fluoridation has been discontinued in communities in Canada and other countries, dental decay has not increased but actually decreased…

7.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention acknowledges findings by many leading dental researchers that fluoride does not have to be ingested to have a protective effect, which is topical, but not systemic. Since swallowing fluoride is unnecessary, no reason exists to force people (against their will) to drink fluoride in their water supply;

8.  The FDA has never approved any fluoride product designed for ingestion as safe or effective…

12.  Fluoride is a cumulative poison, and only 50 percent of this mineral ingested daily can be excreted through the kidneys…


Environmentalists push EPA to reconsider fluoride and/or fluoride levels in water. At the Los Angeles Times: here.
