The Case Against Flouride

how hazardous waste ended up in our drinking water and the bad science and powerful politics that keep it there

By Paul Connett,a James Beck,b and H Spedding Micklemc

A review of The case against fluoride: how hazardous waste ended up in our drinking water and the bad science and powerful politics that keep it there by Connett P, Beck J, and Micklem HS summarises the historical, political, ethical, toxicological, and epidemiological scientific data behind drinking water fluoridation. The book concludes that, if proposed today, fluoridation of drinking water to prevent tooth decay would stand virtually no chance of being adopted, given the current status of scientific knowledge.
