Dr. Arvid Carlsson, co-winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2000, "I would advice against fluoridation...Side effects cannot be excluded...In Sweden, the emphasis nowadays is to keep the environment as clean as possible with regard to pharmacologically active,and , thus, potentially toxic substances."
Dr. Flanagan, Assistant Director of Environmental Health, American Medical Association, "The American Medical Association is NOT prepared to state that no harm will be done to any person by water fluoridation. The AMA has not carried out any research work, either long-term or short-term, regarding the possibility of any side-effects."
Dr. Charles Gordon Heyd, Past President of the American Medical Association, "I am appalled at the prospect of using water as a vehicle for drugs. Fluoride is a corrosive poison wthat will produce serious effects on a long-range basis. Any attempt to use water this way is deplorable."
Dr. William Marcus, Senior Toxicologist at the Environmental Protection Association, "The EPA should act immediately to protect the public, not just on the cancer data, but on the evidence of bone fractures, arthritis, mutagenicity, and other effects."
Dr. F. A. Bull, State Dental Director of Wisconsis, "Water contains a number of substances that are undesirable, and fluorides are just on of them."
