Happy Thanksgiving to All:

I like Wikipedia. I use it daily. I just donated $10 to Wikipedia. I also criticized Wikipedia:

I am the president of and the vice-president of

I am an attorney:

And I am a published author:

I use Wikipedia daily.

My only criticism is that your page on “fluoridation” is one-sided and at times grossly inaccurate.

“Although water fluoridation can cause dental fluorosis, which can alter the appearance of developing teeth, most of this is mild and usually not considered to be of aesthetic or public-health concern. There is no clear evidence of other adverse effects.

Both statements are false. See:

There is a Fluoridation Controversy page at It is equally lacking in objectivity.

When our scientific experts post anything critical of fluoridation, their comments are immediately deleted. On this subject Wikipedia is clearly lacking in objectivity. On this subject the site is clearly controlled by the chemical company profiteers who sell fluoride and their misinformed dental and medical supporters.

Send your feedback to Wikipedia. We should demand that Wikipedia be more objective.

    Fluoride is neither a nutrient nor essential for healthy teeth. It is one of the most poisonous substances on Earth. The industrial toxic waste fluoride used (Hexafluorosilicic acid) cures nothing and heals nothing and has never been tested or approved by FDA (in the USA) as safe and effective for human ingestion.

    Read the truth produced in the best scientific information on fluoridation here: ( You will see a petition signed by almost 4000 professionals, including hundreds of dentists, hundreds of doctors, and other medical researchers calling on governments everywhere to stop fluoridation.
    There are many large scientific studies there to show that drinking fluoridated water has no positive effect on cavity reduction and to show that it causes cancer, thyroid damage, broken hips from brittle bones, lowered IQ and other health problems.

    As a fluoridation advocate, I can tell you that you won’t get anything on Wikipedia which does not have very solid peer-reviewed sources, generally review articles, to back up what you want to post.

    I tried to get the Delta Dental data which showed that a cavity acquired as a young person in a molar costs (2003 dollars) over $2100.


    the moderator would not allow it because it was not published in a peer reviewed journal and further a specific authors was not listed to fix the responsibility for the information.

    Likely most of the anti-fluoridation stuff hasn’t cut the Wikipedia muster.

    Any public forum body that solicits funding from all and sundry is potentially susceptible to bending to the interests of the most generous funders, and can therefore hardly be relied upon for disinterested and unbiased information.
