Flouride linked to Cancer
« on: 17/02/2006 12:40:42 »

Fox 25 News in the U.S. covered the Chester Douglas osteosarcoma  cover-up story yesterday -

Rat poison sold to us as a preventative measure for tooth decay, also leads to fluorosis of the teeth, causing highly accelerated tooth decay, now is linked to bone cancer. I smell a few peppermint law suits brewing. :D

"The explanation requiring the fewest assumptions is most likely to be correct."
K.I.S. "Keep it simple!"

Not the kind of report that impresses me one way or the other.

As has been said, there have been lots of question marks in the past with regard to fluoride in water (even questions I have heard pertaining to chlorine in water), but the report you pointed to was more concerned with character assassination and conspiracy theories than with looking questions of biology and epidemiology.
