Mainstream media finally admits: Adding fluoride to water a ‘useless scheme’ with no benefit to public health

(NaturalNews) Fluoride, long added to our drinking water to improve oral health, is probably useless and even harmful to public health.

Its effectiveness is based on shaky science from the 1950s, yet big dental associations around the world keep promoting the addition of fluoride to our drinking water.

“The sad story is that very little has been done in recent years to ensure that fluoridation is still needed [or] to ensure that adverse effects do not happen,” says Dr. Philippe Grandjean, an environmental health researcher and physician at Harvard University.

A little bit of history

In the early 1930s the link was made between fluoride and both mottling – or tooth staining – and stronger, healthier teeth. By the mid-40s the U.S. Public Health Service was convinced that artificial fluoridation of drinking water to 1.0 ppm would provide better oral health without causing mottling from over-fluoridation.

Facebook and Twitter help spread misinformation and conspiracy theories, scientists conclude

Facebook and Twitter help spread misinformation and conspiracy theories, scientists conclude

Scientists hope that the findings could be useful for those that are looking to share accurate information, if it can help develop new ways of discussion that help people share information without getting it wrong.

The scientists conducted the research by looking at the way that two different kinds of information were spread online: conspiracy theories and other wrong information, and science news. Both had their own separate sets of people who tended to share information between themselves, the researchers found.
