Letter: Fluoride doesn’t prevent cavities, reader argues

By: Letter to the Editor

For the last half century we have been involved in an extensive experiment engaging the use of hydrofluosilicic acid (fluoride).

The claim by heath officials is that ingestion of this industrial waste is preventing tooth cavities to a majestic extent.

Three hundred million plus individuals in North America have been consuming this substance while three hundred million plus persons in Europe have not.

Anyone who appreciates statistical mathematics recognizes that accuracy rests on the number of entries into the statistical sample and the accumulation duration of those entries.

Most assuredly, our statistical sample yields an exceptionally accurate outcome, with more than 600-million entries over a 50-year period.

The end result, with Europeans having no more cavities than North Americans, unmistakably establishes the fact that fluoride ingestion is worthless as a deterrent of dental cavities.

It’s time that North Americans acknowledge this reality and terminate the costly and senseless tradition of water fluoridation.
