The raison d'etre of this website is to provide you with hard scientific information which may help you make informed decisions in your quest for health (so far I have blogged concise summaries of over 1,500 scientific studies and have had three books published).

My research is mainly focused on the effects of cholesterol, saturated fat and statin drugs on health. If you know anyone who is worried about their cholesterol levels and heart disease, or has been told to take statin drugs you could send them a link to this website, and to my statin or cholesterol or heart disease books.

This study examined the effects of fluoride levels in drinking water and the incidence of bone cancer in children under 20 years of age. Data was used from 11 hospitals and 103 cases of bone cancer reported. These were matched against 215 controls.

The study found:
(a) For males exposure to high levels of fluoride in the drinking water was associated with increased rates of bone cancer at all ages. This peaked at age 7 where there was a 446% increased risk.
(b) The association for females was much less pronounced.
