Research has shown that fluoride intake negatively affects numerous organs and physiological processes, including the bones, thyroid, cardiovascular system, kidneys, liver, breast, and immune and reproductive function. Numerous studies indicate that fluoride affects these organs and physiological processes by inducing free radical production resulting in oxidative damage.1-3 This is also apparent in the association between cancer rates and fluoridation of water supplies. Data indicates that increased water fluoride levels are associated with increases in several types of cancer including cancer of the oral cavity, pharynx, colon, rectum, liver, gallbladder, urinary organs, brain, Hodgkin’s and Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, melanoma and leukemia.4
