Canada - Fluoride not for everyone

Fluoride not for everyone
Posted By
In a letter to the editor (Sun Times March 23), Dr. Totten defends fluoride, while anyone who dares to criticize fluoridation is deemed to be incompetent.
Studies in China, India and Brazil, where there are high concentrations of fluoride in the soil, show the people living there have a low IQ. In other words fluoride intake affects the brain.
More than five million Americans are living with Alzheimer's Disease and many in Canada as well. Karl Roehrborn in his letter of March 12 describes how rats fed on 1 ppm of sodium fluoride or aluminum fluoride have higher levels of aluminum in their brain as well as amyloid deposits which are associated with Alzheimer's.
Those with Alzheimer's and their family and friends would not find Dr. Totten's remarks funny. They are looking for any means to avoid or lessen the symptoms of this devastating illness. Any study should be taken seriously as our health is important and should not be taken lightly. As with any food, treatment, or drug, one size does not fit all. One man's meat is another man's poison. From 1% to 4% of the population may have a sensitivity to fluoride.
In a city of 22,000 up to 880 people could be affected and many may not know that it is fluoride that is causing their problems.
For sensitive people to avoid drinking, cooking and bathing with fluoridated water must be extremely difficult and expensive. They may have to move out of the city, and those living outside of Owen Sound are fortunate that they are not forced to use fluoridated water.
Fluoridated toothpaste and other products containing this chemical are available to those who want it. Let the rest of us make our own choice.
In 1997, we may have been ignorant, but with all the news about the danger of chemicals, access to the Internet, and more concern for our well being, many of us are challenging old ideas, treatments and drugs.
We are trying to help ourselves to a better life.
Dr. Paul Connett, a director of the Fluoride Action Network and Dentist Dr. Bill Osmunson once believed in fluoride, but through their research found that this chemical is not suitable for the human body.
