Fluoride: Protected Pollutant or Panacea?
Are the claimed benefits of ingesting fluoride over-rated and
the risks to our health and eco-system under-reported?
Fluoridation proponents often assert that there is no legitimate scientific controversy over the benefits or safety of artificial water fluoridation. These web pages clearly show that controversy existed from the outset and continues to this day.

There are some Golden oldies here but most scientific content pre-dates 1998. For current info, visit:
Professionals who took up the torch in Calgary after I retired - bless their hearts: Dr Bob Dickson and Dr James Beck.
About me: I was actively involved to end fluoridation in Calgary from the end of 1988 to about 1999 and then briefly again in 2011 before Calgary Councillors voted to stop fluoridation. I was a desktop-publishing Editor from 1998-2002 for Fluoride, the journal of the International Society for Fluoride Research. I am officially retired as an activist and working in my new career as a Real Estate Agent.
For those of you just getting started to end fluoridation, may your path be easier than mine was. With heartfelt best wishes and blessings for your journey.
