"[Bryson's] research and consummate writing skill bring to light the shocking story of more than six decades of fluoride cover-up and deception. ... [He] presents its case in such a brilliant way and with such literary skill that it stands a good chance of becoming a cause célèbre for the general public to protest and demand action." —Washington Free Press
"This shocking anthology of incriminating stories and scientific discoveries is a must read for every consumer who owns a toothbrush." —E Magazine
"It is my sincere hope that Christopher Bryson's apparently thorough and comprehensive perusal of the scientific literature on the biological actions of fluoride and the ensuing debates through the years will receive the attention it deserves and that its implications will be seriously considered." —Arvid Carlsson, winner of the 2000 Nobel Prize for Medicine

I myself have the mottled teeth that result from excess fluoridation, and after reading this book, I realize that the whole constellation of health issues I have had (asthma, arthritis, thyroid dysfunction, bony joint growths) also happen to be the most common health effects of lower-level fluoride exposure. A couple of things I've often puzzled about before : the early age at which girls reach puberty these days, and the epidemic of thyroid dysfunction esp. among women (thyroid medication is the most widely prescribed medication today). This book says that low-level fluoride exposure does lower the age of girls reaching puberty, and that thyroid dysfunction is a hallmark result of too much fluoride exposure. So maybe therein lies the answer to these puzzles. It also causes neurological effects - and we certainly have plenty of neurological epidemics going on in this country as well! But this is me jumping to conclusions. The book does no such thing. It is reasoned, and simply lays out facts - albeit fascinating ones that pretty much no one knows. Somehow the whole history and real story of fluoride has been wiped from the American consciousness, and this book aims to change that. And a fascinating story it is. Really a page-turner.
In a race to develop atom bombs to counteract a perceived threat from its former ally, the Soviet Union, the United States broadened its nuclear development program through an unprecedented collusion between government and industry. In his farewell address to the nation in 1961, president Eisenhower warned that "we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the Military-Industrial Complex."
This complicity is seen clearly in the history of fluoride and the public relations exercise carried out by government and industry that fooled America into thinking this deadly chemical was good for a our teeth. As it turns out, fluoride, and its industrial counterpart fluorine gas, described by some as a "violent monster," is one of the most toxic chemicals on the planet inducing skeletal fluorosis, arthritis, thyroid problems, bone cancer, and hyperactivity in animals.
As Bryson explains, fluoride is a necessary ingredient in nuclear bomb production, as essential as uranium. In the 1940's, the U.S. government and corporate America were faced with a flurry of worker and citizen lawsuits about fluoride poisoning. Industry-sponsored research and clever spin control transformed the nation's perception of fluoride from a toxic chemical pollutant into a medical supplement dispensed in water.
Bryson documents how various industries funded studies that showed the dangers of fluoride to workers in metal fabricating plants, and nuclear bomb production-factories. The most damaging studies were kept hidden from public sight until recently.
Fluoride, ubiquitous in so many household products, turns out to be one of the most deadly known chemicals and has no safe place in our food supply. That the U.S. medical establishment supports adding it to our water only attests to the gigantic and criminal fraud that has been perpetrated upon the U.S. and a few other countries that advocate fluoridation. Bryson's book is one of the best I have ever read on any subject. Read it if you want to know the disturbing truth about the secret agendas of those who make public policy in America.
