Leading Cancer Researcher Opposes Water Fluoridation

Professor Samuel Epstein, leading cancer researcher, states that fluoridation of water reflects high receptivity to the fluoride industry, and indifference with significant public health penalties to the U.K. population. Fluoride used for this purpose comes from highly contaminated industrial grade fluorosilicic wastes; contaminants include heavy metals. Furthermore, there is significant experimental evidence that fluoride induces a dose-related incidence of bone cancer in rats. This is further supported by epidemiological studies incriminating fluoride and bone cancer in young men.


Dr Sam Epstein, Chairman of the Cancer Prevention Coalition, author of "The Politics of Cancer", and "The Politics of Cancer Revisited", strongly supports MP John Butterfill's Early Day Motion 1258, on FLUORIDATION OF PUBLIC WATER SUPPLIES 20.05.03, which states:

"That this House considers that the only chemicals which should be added to public water are those which are essential for its purification for public consumption; believes that the addition of medicines to public water supplies is a breach of fundamental human rights; and rejects any proposals to amend legislation to permit the addition of fluoride to public water supplies."

On 29 May 2003, Professor Epstein wrote:

"Fluoridation of water reflects high receptivity to the fluoride industry, and indifference with significant public health penalties to the U.K. population. I should further note that some 100 leading national and international cancer prevention scientists, and representatives of consumer and environmental organizations have endorsed the Cancer Prevention Coalition's opposition to fluoride in its The Stop Cancer Before It Starts Campaign Report.

"I strongly support EDM 1258 opposing fluoridation of water. Fluoride used for this purpose comes from highly contaminated industrial grade fluorosilicic wastes; contaminants include heavy metals. Furthermore, there is significant experimental evidence that fluoride induces a dose-related incidence of bone cancer in rats. This is further supported by epidemiological studies incriminating fluoride and bone cancer in young men.

"The imposition of fluoridation on the U.K. public presents a significant public health hazard. It should further be stressed that simple filtration will not remove fluoride. Expensive reverse osmosis units are required for this purpose. This would impose undue economic burden among lower socioeconomic groups, as also would the alternative of purchasing bottled water.

"It should further be noted that fluoride is currently added to the water supply of about 60% of the U.S. population. This is in sharp contrast to only 2% of the European population, which has much lower rates of dental caries."

Experts challenge Water Fluoridation
..."Fluorides are cumulative, and short-term studies are specifically designed by proponents in a weak attempt to circumvent biological data [ 13 ]. Research indicates that agencies like the AMA and ADA were reasonably honest about the issue prior to 1945, before corporate pressure apparently forced them to "get in line". According to the AMA on September 18, 1943, "fluorides are general protoplasmic poisons, with the capacity to modify the metabolism... [read more]

WHO Ignores Science, Questions - Recommends Toxic Fluoride
When the World Health Organization in its most recent issue of Drinking Water Guidelines recommends that fluoride should never be missing from our water, is it really doing the bidding of the Sugar Industry? Certainly dental caries is promoted by our consumption of sugar and sweets, including soft drinks, and the economic interests behind these junk foods are enormous. Fluoride provides a convenient "red herring" to put our attention on... [read more]

Fluoride Linked to Obesity Epidemic, Thyroid Trouble
Could it be that the obesity epidemic that is plaguing the US, the UK and other countries is linked to fluoride in drinking water? Dr Barry Durrant-Peatfield certainly seems to support that possibility when he says that "there is no doubt that fluoride is enzyme disruptive and one thing it affects is thyroid hormones", adding that "people can finish up with partial under-activity of the thyroid gland." But in addition... [read more]

The practice of dumping toxic-waste fluorosilicates into public water supplies in the name of fighting tooth decay has just received another damper.

Readers' Comments

I am allergic to sodium fluoride....they just recently put it in the water....I can't even touch this poison. I am packing in water by the gallons. I pay $3000.00 in property taxes....and am poisoned by the city!! I am camping out in my own home!! I can't even take a shower or wash clothes in this poison!! The real reason behind water fluoridation is not to benefit children's teeth. If this were the real reason there are many ways in which it could be done that are much easier, cheaper, and far more effective. The real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce resistance of the masses to domination and control and loss of liberty. Who is the government to dictate to me that I have to take this drug and in the amount they say? If my doctor wanted me to have this it would be prescribe to me in the dosage needed, which is ZIP!! As I am allergic to this poison!! I will have to sell my house and move...The city at least owes me a whole house filter system. Fluoridation is ALL about power and money!! The mayor of this city wouldn't allow equal time for the people opposing this matter to make comments and canceled air time just 1 minute before time to broadcast. People here have not done the research to know just how bad this crap is. They are so influenced by what the local dentists and doctors say about this that that is all it takes. They don't realize that the dentists will get rich on this. More cavities, more fillings, much more and bigger expenses to damaged teeth. My two daughters grew up with NO fluoride....they BOTH never had, not one cavity until in the mid twenties. Fluoride is POISON!!!! I cannot even touch it!!!

From a recent e-mail:

I've just finished putting articles from the links below into a Word doc, which I've attached. I had reasonable quality colour copies of the dental fluorosis photos that appeared in the first article. I hope you find it of interest.
