Study title and author:
Fluoridation and cancer: The biology and epidemiology of bone and oral cancer related to fluoridation.

This study examined the link between bone cancer and fluoridation. Using 3 different data bases Yiamouyiannis found:
(a) The oral cancer rate for males under 20 was up to 60% higher in fluoridated areas compared to non fluoridated areas.
(b) The bone cancer rate for all males was about 50% higher in the fluoridated areas compared to the non fluoridated areas.
(c) The bone cancer rate for males under 20 was about 100% higher in the fluoridated areas compared to the non fluoridated areas.
Yiamouyiannis concludes: "These findings indicate that fluoridation is linked to an increase in bone cancer
and deaths from bone cancer in human populations among males under age 20 and that this increase in bone cancer is probably all due to an increase in osteosarcoma caused by fluoride".
Recipe of the day
|Food Mall: Pork Loin|
½ lb shrimp, tails removed and de-veined
