IFIN BULLETIN #542: A bombshell to end fluoridation?

April 19, 2002.

Dear All,

I guess we have all been looking for a magic bullet to stop fluoridation. I think we have just found one, or rather I think we have a bombshell not a bullet! This bombshell was put on the table by the US Surgeon General (CDC), the fuse was lit in Toronto and it has just exploded in Vancouver!

Joan Kumpitsch has just forwarded to us the "explosion" in the latest newsletter ( #9) of Parents of Fluoride Poisoned Children (PFPC) <pfpc@sprint.ca>. This newsletter, which is very long, can be accessed at the above web site.

It may well spell the end of the fluoridation program as well as fluoridated toothpaste.

Here it is:

"Patents by the pharmaceutical company Sepracor disclose that concentrations of fluorides from fluoridated toothpastes and mouthwashes activate G proteins in the oral cavity, thereby promoting gingivitis and periodontitis, as well as oral cancer. Incomprehensibly, this vital information is being withheld from the public by all parties involved, including the company, at
least two well-known Universities, and numerous oral disease experts. This includes a much-decorated ADA scientist who was involved in setting the CDC recommmendations for fluoride intake in children, served as head of a Food and Drug Administration subcommittee that decides which dental products to make available to the public, and who chaired the panel on safe use of fluoride for the Centers for Disease Control (2001)."

This news came just a day after Dr. Hardy Limeback had sent me his analysis showing that the US Surgeon General's Oral Health Survey of the US indicates that as the percentage of people drinking fluoridated water in a state increases so does the rate of oral cancer. Specifically he found that "more men died of oral and throat cancers in the states where more communities were fluoridated". Dr. Limeback, as you may recall had for 15 years been the number one booster of fluoridation in Canada until two years ago. At that time he stopped and looked at the toxicology studies. He has spent the years since that time re-educating people and working to eliminate fluoridation.
