Click here to read a Newsweek article that was just released today that shows the Cochrane Collaboration’s findings after they “reviewed every study done on fluoridation that they could find”.
Here are some snippets from the article, but you’ll want to read it in full. It’s got some great information from doctors and researchers!
“…Most scientists interviewed for this article don’t necessarily think fluoridation’s uncertain benefits justify its continuation without more stringent evidence, and argue for more research into the matter.”
“When you have a public health intervention that’s applied to everybody, the burden of evidence to know that people are likely to benefit and not to be harmed is much higher, since people can’t choose,” Sheldon says. Everybody drinks water, after all, mostly from the tap. “Public health bodies need to have the courage to look at this review,” says Sheldon, “and be honest enough to say that this needs to be reconsidered.”
“The Cochrane Collaboration, a group of doctors and researchers known for their comprehensive reviews—which are widely regarded as the gold standard of scientific rigor in assessing effectiveness of public health policies—recently set out to find out if fluoridation reduces cavities. They reviewed every study done on fluoridation that they could find, and then winnowed down the collection to only the most comprehensive, well-designed and reliable papers. Then they analyzed these studies’ results, and published their conclusion in a review earlier this month.”
“Overall the review suggests that stopping fluoridation would be unlikely to increase the risk of tooth decay, says Kathleen Thiessen, a senior scientist at the Oak Ridge Center for Risk Analysis, which does human health risk assessments of environmental contaminants.”
“The data suggest that toothpaste, besides other preventative measures like dental sealants, flossing and avoiding sugar, are the real drivers in the decline of tooth decay in the past few decades, Thiessen says. Indeed, cavity rates have declined by similar amounts in countries with and without fluoridation.”
See the chart below.
The governmental bodies that still claim it is “safe and effective” need to revisit the information regarding fluoridation. The public is now armed with more objective information on the subject. They are NOT buying this “safe and effective” propaganda that was meant to mislead us in the first place and used primarily to influence the audience.
The fluoridation issue is also causing a lot of environmental damage, so expect some action from individuals across the country.
