The Infectious Myth On “The Infectious Myth” host David Crowe will examine the questionable or outright false paradigms that infect our society.

October 14, 2014  

Paul Connett has worked harder and longer than anyone to oppose water fluoridation from a scientific perspective. He is a retired chemistry professor, and head of the Fluoride Action Network.


Paul and David talk about the history of water fluoridation, how it helped change the public perception of this common industrial waste product, and also how water consumers (that’s everyone) have successfully fought back against the practice. It is now found mainly in North America and Ireland, but is receding in most places. Recently it was banned in Israel and there are ongoing lobbying or legal actions in many remaining cities.


This episode discusses what are the major negative health effects of fluoride, especially the devastating impact on bones and joints, how children with levels of fluoride not much higher than the amount deliberately added to water, have lower IQs. And also the stupidity of carefully measuring the quantity of fluoride added to water, knowing that the amount of water consumed per person varies dramatically, especially when measured relative to body weight.
