UK Against Fluoridation

New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc.
Even More Researchers Acknowledge Fluoridation’s Lack of Effectiveness Data

“Fluoridated water [does] not seem, based on the existing literature, to hold sufficient evidence for the reduction of dental caries,” report Italian researchers in the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Dentistry (December 2016).

Sicca, et al. analyzed thirty systematic reviews on tooth decay prevention, from 2002 – 2015, and report “there is not sufficient evidence to determine whether the use [of] water fluoridation has a significant impact in the reduction of caries." Other scientists concur. For example, Swedish researchers, in "PLOS one," February 2015, reported a “systematic review concerned the caries-preventive effect of water fluoridation [MdDonagh]… was graded as low.”

In July 2012, Cagetti, et al. reported “Studies of the effectiveness of water fluoridation have been based on observational study designs… these studies are regarded as low in quality and the weight of the evidence derived from cross-sectional and observational studies can be questionable”

Fluoride's cavity-preventing foundation is based on human experimental studies which began in 1945. Errors and omissions in those studies were pointed out by dental researcher Phillip Sutton and others as early as 1959. Fluoridation uncertainty existed from the outset. Reasonable voices of scientific opposition were ignored, for example, that of respected physician, Dr. George Waldbott. See: http://fluoridedangers.blogspot.com/.../fluoridation...

So it's not surprising that 72 years after fluoridation began, reaching record numbers of Americans via the water, food and beverages made with that water, dental products (virtually all non invented when fluoridation began), fluoride in medicine and air pollution, dentists have been complicet in creating a new public health problem - fluoride overdose symptoms - dental fluorosis (white spotted, yellow, brown and/or pitted teeth) now afflicting 58% of US adolescents, according to federal data.

In 2015, the independent and trusted UK-based Cochrane group of researchers could not find any quality evidence that proves fluoridation changes the “existing differences in tooth decay across socioeconomic groups.” or that fluoridation cessation increases decay rates.

Fluoridation is one the biggest public health blunders of modern times, a political boondoggle, not supported by science. It must stop.

Americans are fluoride-overdosed and dentist-deficient. It's odd that a dentist is advocating fluoridating the poor (without any evidence of need) instead of rallying her profession to actually treat the poor.
