A year ago we were contacted by Doug Cragoe about the CDC document and the false claims that fluoride was essential.

Mr. Cragoe wrote to the CDC on numerous occasions, trying to get this info corrected.

Today, we received the following email from him.

Subject: success - CDC changed their safety webpage


I wrote to you about your find early last year. https://www.cdc.gov/fluoridation/safety/ It looks like this webpage was changed about a month after I started complaining.

What it used to say:

The 2007 NRC Report on Earth Materials and Health: Research Priorities for Earth Sciences and Public Health

In this report, the NRC considered research issues related to the medical geology field on connections between earth science and public health, addressing both positive and negative societal impacts. This report identified fluoride as a mineral that can positively influence human health, and although earlier NRC reports were not conclusive in their opinions, this report concluded that fluoride was considered to be an element essential for human life based on its role in cellular functions involving metabolic or biochemical processes. The report further stated that fluoride in drinking water has two beneficial effects: preventing tooth decay (dental caries) and contributing to bone mineralization and bone matrix integrity.


What is says now:


The 2007 NRC Report on Earth Materials and Health: Research Priorities for Earth Sciences and Public Health

In this report, the NRC considered research issues related to the medical geology field on connections between earth science and public health, addressing both positive and negative societal impacts. This report identified fluoride as a mineral that can positively influence human health. The report further stated that fluoride in drinking water has two beneficial effects: preventing tooth decay (dental caries) and contributing to bone mineralization and bone matrix integrity.

Notice the “essential element” sentence is gone. A small victory.

Does the 2007 NRC report have high quality evidence that fluoride is good for bones? Or is that also invented?
