Ron Margolis, of Durango Colorado USA, has to be a scientist and an exceptionally intelligent one I might add. His irrefutable risk-benefit analysis definitely indicates fluoridation of drinking water is a huge medical error! His flawless letter to the editor states that high end objectively minded research groups enumerate a lengthy list of flouride caused maladies such as harm to developing brains of our youth leading to lower IQ’s, hypothyroidism, bone cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, endocrine system disruption, pineal gland calcification and fluorosis. The following is a direct quote from his sincere, informative, and loving letter to his hometown community:
These studies cry out for some sort of intervention on behalf of the citizens of our community. I do not see how we can just continue to dismiss these findings. Having read these studies, since 2010, and with the knowledge that most developed nations and over 90 percent of western Europe do not fluoridate their water, over 150 cities in North America and even a country (Israel in 2014) have chosen to abandon fluoridation of their water supplies as a measure of precaution, I would suggest that we follow their lead to protect our public health.
Utilizing a simple risk/benefit ratio, the benefits we may be getting from fluoridation, the reduction of dental cavities in our populace, simply do not outweigh the many potential harms that these studies suggest may well be caused by the fluoridation of our water supply. Let”s not take a chance with our precious health! Better to error on the side of caution.
