Dear Editor

According to Dr Jeanette Young on the ABC News tonight, there is no evidence that the amount of fluoride used for water fluoridation has any detrimental health effects.  But Dr Hardy Limeback, recently retired Professor of Preventive Dentistry at Toronto University, states that dental fluorosis caused by water fluoridation is scarring our kids’ teeth for life.  He estimates that repairing all those teeth with objectionable fluorosis costs families (on average) more money than it costs to treat the dental decay that fluoridation supposedly prevents.

Also more than 40 recent studies that show fluoride has a detrimental effect on IQ in children, and in some cases at amounts similar to what is put into our water.  After reviewing 27 of these studies, a team of Harvard scientists concluded that fluoride’s effect on the young brain should now be a “high research priority.”

Clearly Dr Young needs to update her knowledge of fluoride’s health effects.

Yours sincerely
