Fluoride Deceoption

The Fluoride Deception reveals how military and industry scientists and public health officials buried information about fluoride’s potential for human harm, while promoting its use in dentistry. The Fluoride Deception reveals that fluoride pollution was the greatest legal threat facing the wartime Manhattan Project. And the book documents how a secretive group of powerful industries, who all faced extensive litigation for fluoride pollution, collaborated with the Institute of Dental Research to launder fluoride’s image. We’ll walk the cobbled streets of Donora, Pennsylvania, in the shrouded aftermath of the nation’s most notorious air pollution disaster in 1948, and meet the scientist who blamed -fluoride for the deaths. Today, that scientist joins a growing number of health experts who call fluoride a venomous and hydra-headed poison. They suspect its involvement in a host of modern illnesses, including arthritis, bone cancer, and emphysema, and a spectrum of central nervous system disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and the epidemic of attention deficit disorder sweeping America’s children.
