Hundreds of brave dentists speak out against water fluoridation

Source:  Natural News

It takes a special kind of humility for a medical professional to admit that something he or she was taught in medical school, and has long since clung to as fact, is actually false. But a growing number of dentists from around the world, many of whom formerly supported water fluoridation, are now boldly speaking out against it as a long-held, unsubstantiated medical dogma purported to prevent tooth decay, but that actually damages health and provides no legitimate oral health benefits.

Recently, there has been intense pressure in many communities to remove fluoride chemicals from water supplies. Particularly in the US where fluoridation is quite common, many local residents have been sending information about fluoride’s dangers to their city council members, and even attending and speaking at meetings.

But what is often missing from reports about anti-fluoridation efforts is the fact that many medical professionals, including dentists, are also in agreement that fluoride ingestion is dangerous. In other words, these are not just concerned citizens without medical degrees that are raising an issue, but they are people that have been extensively educated in oral health.

“When I graduated from University, we weren’t given any information about where [fluoride] came from,” says Dentist Caree Alexander, a former Navy practitioner who also had a private dental practice for 20 years, in the documentary FIRE WATER: Australia’s Industrial Fluoridation Disgrace. “We all assumed it was [pharmaceutical-grade] calcium fluoride.”

Other prominent dentists that have spoken out against fluoride include Dr. Thomas Connelly from New York City; Dr. Andrew Harms, former president of the Australian Dental Association; Dentist Hardy Limeback, PhD, from the University of Toronto’s Department of Preventive Dentistry; Dentist Bill Osmunson from the Fluoride Action Network (FAN); and Dentist David Kennedy from the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), just to name a few.

“My [published] work showed that fluoride accumulates in the human pineal gland and lowers melatonin production in animals,” says Dentist Jennifer Luke, PhD. “I find it extraordinary that no government promoting fluoridation has chosen to pursue these worrying findings.”

Beyond simply ignoring the science surrounding fluoride’s dangers, the US government and its media pawns routinely take the offensive against those opposed to water fluoridation, slandering them as paranoid conspiracy theorists. But there is no denying that thousands of medical professionals, including dentists, are adamantly against it as well.

More than 3,790 professionals, 324 of which are dentists, have already signed FAN’s Call for an End to Water Fluoridation, which you can view here:

    Hey AwareAmerican, Awesome blog. I will post a link on my facebook page.

  2. Inertia is a strange thing. When it’s moving in the right direction, it’s wonderful. The other side of the coin is that it has taken this long, under tremendous weight of evidence, to get the ball rolling up this hill. I have never understood how anyone could flunk Chemistry so badly, and still be in the medical profession.

      • I was thinking of social inertia generally, and what it takes to get people moving toward the truth. My train of thought is non-linear, so I often find myself moving between the literal and simile, with very little background in context. It makes my friends crazy, conversationally.

        • Haha… that’s hilarious, I find myself doing that sometimes… because speech is linear and deep thought isn’t, it’s like trying to talk about bread when you’re thinking about ALL food… or something along those lines, lol, can’t think of another example at the moment. Hey, did you know that this whole time, I thought your thumbnail picture was of FED Chairman Bernanke until just now when I moved my cursor over the pic and it zoomed in to show me more detail? I’m probably the only one who thought that though.

          • I have never been mistaken for Helicopter Ben. If I was, I could probably get sa limo to anywhere, just for the asking. It would be just my luck that I would encounter an entire crowd of people with common sense. They would chase me down the street, throwing rotten produce at me. If I looked in the mirror, and made the same mistake, I would want to join them.

          • Lol…sorry ’bout that! Haha, it’s almost the same pose as THIS popular Bloomberg.com shot of him. With a small thumbnail picture, and at a glance, kinda looks like Bernanke but not really. Again, sorry, no offense intended.
