Water fluoridation,, health risks and cancer The topic of water fluoridation has been an interesting one for many years now. Skeptics do argue that there’s no evidence to support the numerous claims of water fluoridation being harmful to our health however if this were true, why are towns all around the world coming together in order to ban this form of water treatment once and for all. Towns here in the UK as well as Australia, Canada and the U.S. have all been convinced of the harm that fluoride can have on our health, with Cancer a particular worry, and for good reason too.

During his career he discovered biotin, a chemical that’s necessary for cell growth and the production of fatty acids as well as the metabolism of fats and amino acids. He was also the head chemist at the National Cancer Institutes Cytochemistry Sector, as well as part of the National Institute of health under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. He received the highly regarded Hilderbrand Prize in 1952 for his work on photosynthesis as well as the Gerhard Domagk Prize in 1965 for procedures he developed that allowed us to distinguish between a normal cell and one damaged by cancer. He sadly died in 1988 as one of the most famous scientists of our time. An example of the quality of his work can be seen in the fact that his 1934 published works, “The Determination of Enzyme Dissociation Constants” is still one of the most frequently cited papers in all the history of biochemistry. As you can undoubtedly see, this man most certainly knew his science, which is why we find it hard to believe that it was a coincidence he left it until his much later years to speak up about his findings with regards to fluoride. The interview in which he released all the information he had on fluoride was recorded in Holland in the 1970’s.
