William Grogin stated “there are not intelligent, educated, scientifically trained, medically trained professionals concerned about water fluoridation. There are people who know nothing about the topic and those conspiracy theory nuts who think that the Jews blew up the World Trade Centre. Which group are you in?”

There are 14 nobel laureates in medicine and chemistry who have all campaigned to end water fluoridation on human health grounds. In addition leading academics including medical and scientific professors from the worlds top universities have all signed a petition to ban water fluoridation.

Willian Grogin obviously hasn’t a clue what he is talking about and belongs in the category that will believe anything that he is told regardless of the scientific evidence. By the way Harvard did publish in a peer reviewed cancer research journal that children were at a sevenfold increase of getting Osteosarcoma and the National research council of the united states of america did find that fluoride effects the thyroid gland and that a sub group of the population were hypersensitive to fluoride causing them general ill-health. In the past 3 years there has been many peer reviewed studies that show Fluoride to be a neurotoxin, which might explain why ireland has more than twice the global average of neurological disease.

Also note that less than 35% of public water supplies are fluoridated in canada, the south island in NZ do not fluoridate and about 60% of USA fluoridate, in fact over 300 local councils and cities across america have banned it in USA in the past 10 years. Ireland is the most fluoridated country in the world. Furthermore international public health organisations and professional medical and dental associations have advised that no infant should be exposed to fluoride in their diets and in countries outside of Ireland (including the United States of America and Canada) parents are warned by public health officials not to feed their infants fluoridated drinking water, as it causes long term physical harm. Learn the facts and less ignorance/arrogance please.
