Bryson reveals a labyrinth of connecting conspiracies buried within by the military, industry scientists and public health officials who suspiciously rallied to cover key information about fluoride's potential for human harm. Bryson shows us how it is not only fluoride's use in dentistry which is poisoning the public, but its presence in air pollution damagies our central nervous systems and possibly causes a host of illnesses, including arthritis, cancer and Alzheimer's. A disturbing yet gripping read which instills a dark sense of doubt in any reader.

Speaking of Fake News: how many, many times does one hear anyone raising actual Science, and Real Scientific Processes, being cast as a tin foil hat weirdo, by those lesser, robotic followers of the dictum: Obey Authority?
I mean, read the frigging research protocols sometime, yea great unwashed masses!
I don't know how many times I've read something in the Fake News over the past 50 or so years, then read the protocol and found there was no connection between the // reporter's \\ assertion, and the actual FACT! [And yes, facts, like politicians' voting records, are really, really important!]
Yes, there was no sound reason to add fluoride, and the recent most valid scientific study just cited this year, again reiterated that fluoride is found to have no effect in teeth health and cavity prevention! Those who called the anti-fluoride critics nuts for ever so long, never paid any attention in their science classes, assuming they ever took any . . . .

This should be on everyone's "MUST READ" list. This book will shock you, as you will learn how aluminum and other industries plagued by the issue of fluoride pollution were able to avoid massive lawsuits by the simple trick (scam!) of adding fluoride to the drinking water of various municipalities under the guise that it's good for the teeth (it's not!). Various companies were facing a number of lawsuits of workers exposed to fluoride and it really started due to the Manhattan Project. That's right, fluoride was a huge part of the A-bombs and it is believed caused more deaths and injuries than the nuclear aspect. Other things which have been banned which is made by fluoride include freon gas and Teflon. Can't more highly recommend this book, you will be disgusted by our government after reading this though!!!

A wake-up call to all of us!! This book is more than 10 years old... and we're still debating the issue of fluoride in our public drinking water!!?? A must read for anyone concerned about the health of all of us and our planet... and the history of why public poisoning is part of Government policy. Five Stars
