This is just a friendly email to remind you that I’m still eagerly awaiting your review of the new book by Connett et al. Please be sure to let the world know as soon as you publish your review. If it happens to be as well-referenced and detailed as your recent contribution to the field, I’m sure you’ll once again have your readers clamoring for your real email address.
Back to the Connett et al book for a moment – here’s what some other reviewers have said already:
water-and questioned whether they should. Written with clear
and easy-to-read prose, and supporting citations, The Case Against
Fluoride carefully lays out the arguments against ﬂuoridation and
reasons why it should be discontinued. The authors examine the
evidence on ﬂuoridation and conclude convincingly that it should
now be considered ‘harmful and ineffective.
–Dr. Hardy Limeback, Professor and Head of
Preventive Dentistry, University of TorontoSweden rejected ﬂuoridation in the 1970s, and in this excellent
book these three scientists have conﬁrmed the wisdom of that
decision. Our children have not suffered greater tooth decay, as
World Health Organization ﬁgures attest, and in turn our citizens
have not borne the other hazards ﬂuoride may cause. In any case,
since ﬂuoride is readily available in toothpaste, you don’t have to
force it on people.
–Arvid Carlsson, Nobel Laureate in Medicine
or Physiology (2000) and Emeritus Professor of
Pharmacology, University of Gothenburg
As a Health Reporter, Tory, I’m sure you’ll set the record straight in an intellectually rigorous and scientific manner, explaining why the above reviewers are so terribly misguided and unqualified to make such claims. After all, Tory, as we all know, you are the expert. And, humble little me, I wouldn’t be so bold as to put words in your mouth.
I have no doubt you will blow the planet away with your utter brilliance, backed with a depth and breadth of knowledge of subject matter so rarely seen in journalists these days.
