Fluoridation does more harm then good, say 500 Dentists

> Dear Friends,
> Unfortunately dentist today still are brainwashed during their studies that
> fluoridation is preventing tooth decay. Give a print out of this to your
> dentist. Avoid any tooth-paste that contains fluoride like Colgate! I
> surprised that USA still has fluoridated water, they have stopped that in
> Switzerland for example long ago. This facts are known since over 15 years!
> Similar it is known that Chlorination is bad for health and creates more
> harm than good. There are alternate ways to purify public water, but it is
> more expensive. For that reasons in almost all places the authorities keep
> their eyes closed and continue chlorination of drinking water. DON'T DRINK
> not sure whether they add fluoride as well in Delhi water.) You can get rid
> of it by cooking it long enough and/or most filter are removing the
> chloride. Even to swim in chlorinated swimming-pools is not advisable. (The
> skin is anything else then a closed shell, it takes more in then we commonly
> assume!) Also there are alternate systems with peroxide for pool water, but
> it is more costly then per-chlorides.
> Now read on, I pasted also the health risks at the end.

End Fluoridation, Say 500 Physicians, Dentists, Scientists And
> Environmentalists
> 10 Aug 2007
> In a statement released recently, over 600 professionals are urging
> Congress to stop water fluoridation until Congressional hearings are
> conducted. They cite new scientific evidence that fluoridation, long
> promoted to fight tooth decay, is ineffective and has serious health risks.

> Signers include a Nobel Prize winner, three members of the prestigious 2006
> National Research Council (NRC) panel that reported on fluoride's
> toxicology, two officers in the Union representing professionals at EPA
> headquarters, the President of the International Society of Doctors for the
> Environment, and hundreds of medical, dental, academic, scientific and
> environmental professionals, worldwide.
> Signer Dr. Arvid Carlsson, winner of the 2000 Nobel Prize for Medicine,
> says, "Fluoridation is against all principles of modern pharmacology. It's
> really obsolete."
> Paul Connett, PhD, Executive Director of the Fluoride Action Network (FAN),
> announced that an Online Action Petition to Congress in support of the
> Professionals' Statement will soon be available at FAN's web site,
> "The NRC report dramatically changed scientific understanding of fluoride's
> health risks," says Connett. "Government officials who continue to promote
> fluoridation must testify under oath as to why they are ignoring the
> powerful evidence of harm in the NRC report," he added.
> An Assistant NY State Attorney General calls the report "the most
> up-to-date expert authority on the health effects of fluoride exposure."
> The Professionals' Statement also references:
> -- The new American Dental Association policy recommending infant formula
> NOT be prepared with fluoridated water.
> -- The CDC's concession that the predominant benefit of fluoride is topical
> not systemic.
> -- CDC data showing that dental fluorosis, caused by fluoride
> over-exposure, now impacts one third of American children.
> -- Major research indicating little difference in decay rates between
> fluoridated and non-fluoridated communities.
> -- A Harvard study indicating a possible link between fluoridation and bone
> cancer.
> -- The silicofluoride chemicals used for fluoridation are contaminated
> industrial waste and have never been FDA- approved for human ingestion.
> The Environmental Working Group (EWG), a DC watchdog, revealed that a
> Harvard professor concealed the fluoridation/bone cancer connection for
> three years. EWG President Ken Cook states, "It is time for the US to
> recognize that fluoridation has serious risks that far outweigh any minor
> benefits, and unlike many other environmental issues, it's as easy to end as
> turning off a valve at the water plant."
