When the US Public Health Service endorsed water fluoridation in 1959, there was little evidence of its safety. Now, six decades later and after most countries have rejected the practice, more than 70 per cent of Americans, as well as 200 million people worldwide, are drinking fluoridated water. The Centre for Disease Control and the American Dental Association continue to promote it - and even support mandatory state-wide water fluoridation - despite increasing evidence that it is not only unnecessary, but potentially hazardous to humans.
In this book, the authors take a new look at the science behind water fluoridation and argue that just because the dental and medical establishments endorse a public health measure does not mean it is safe. And from an ethical standpoint, they say, water fluoridation is a bad medical practice: individuals are being forced to take medication without their informed consent; there is no control over the dose and no monitoring of possible side effects.
