Fallout from fluoride reduction advisory continues

January 14, 2011

Local residents throughout the U.S. and elsewhere are following up on the recent Associated Press story [see Jan. 7 post on this blog] relating that U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has proposed a change in recommended fluoride level to 0.7 milligrams per liter of water and that the EPA will review whether the maximum cutoff of 4 milligrams per liter is too high.

Here’s an urgent note from our Fairbanks, Alaska correspondent, Douglas Yates:

“All added fluoride should be removed from Fairbanks water. The evidence of harm is overwhelming and the feds did not release the full story. Nothing about harm to infants; nothing about people with CKD; nothing about thyroid damage. Please say so [in letters to the editor of your local paper]. It’s important. Policy makers are keeping a head count. If you want a community that uses science to make public decisions; that does not mass medicate with unknown dosage; that reciprocates your respect, then speak your mind here. People are listening. It’s time.”
