The Fluoride Deception

Sitting at the beach yesterday, I listened to some debate about the possible health benefits and possible dangers of choosing to add flouride to people's diet, through tablets or flouridation of municipal water supplies.

I decided to do some research for myself and while there was a volume of information in the form of articles and essays presenting it's pros and cons, I found this video was a most thorough explanation of the issue:

Christopher Bryson, an award-winning journalist and former producer at the BBC, discusses the findings of his new book The Flouride Deception.

EARLY REVIEW of The Fluoride Deception:

"Bryson marshals an impressive amount of research to demonstrate fluoride's harmfulness, the ties between leading fluoride researchers and the corporations who funded and benefited from their research, and what he says is the duplicity with which fluoridation was sold to the people. The result is a compelling challenge to the reigning dental orthodoxy, which should provoke renewed scientific scrutiny and public debate."

In Donora, Pennsylvania, the most notorious air pollution disaster in US history implicated Flouride in 19 deaths. According to Bryson, this incident was largely responsible for the start of the environmental movement and yet the cover up was so thorough that this is an unknown event to most environmentalists.
