Top Scientist: Fluoride Already Shown to Cause 10,000 Cancer Deaths

By Anthony Gucciardi

Water fluoridation is a highly controversial topic, with many individuals voicing massive concern over the practice. In contrast, some stick to the concept that there isn’t any association between fluoride and any real negative effects. Fluoride, however, is indeed a toxic substance, and has been tied with numerous health complications in well-established research. Fluoride can be found in many water supplies, toothpaste, and even food at alarming levels. While it may sound shocking to many, some research is even drawing a close connection between fluoride and an increased cancer risk.

One paper entitled Fluoride – A Modern Toxic Waste says the following:

“Yiamouyiannis documents research showing that fluoride increases the tumor growth rate by 25% at only 1 ppm, produces melanotic tumors, transforms normal cells into cancer cells and increases the carcinogenesis of other chemicals. For the original references to these studies, refer to Yiamouyiannis’ pamphlet, Lifesavers Guide to Fluoridation

In 1997, it was shown that fluoridation caused about 10,000 cancer deaths in epidemiological studies by Dr. Dean Burk, former head of the Cytochemistry Section at the National Cancer Institute and Yiamouyiannis. Despite the findings occurring in 1997, they were not reluctantly released until 1989. After analyzing the study results in rats, it was found that animals who drank fluoridated water:

  • Showed an increase in tumors and cancers in oral squamous cells.
  • Developed a rare form of bone cancer called osteosarcoma.
  • Showed an increased in thyroid follicular cell tumors.
  • Developed a rare form of liver cancer known as hepatocholangiocarcinoma.

Other research resurfaced by Dr. Dean Burk, former chief of cytochemistry at the National Cancer Institute for 30 years, also shows that fluoride increases the cancer death rate. Dr Burk refers to a study conducted which compares the 10 largest U.S. cities with fluoridation and the 10 largest without. What researchers found was that following fluoridation, deaths from cancer went up immediately- in as little as a year.

To reduce fluoride levels to a the greatest degree, activists must demand that the government stop fluoridating the water supplies. Water fluoridation has not only been linked to an increased cancer risk, but a decreased IQ in children. In fact, the findings forced the government to call for lower fluoridation levels nationwide. Until water fluoridation comes to a halt, the easiest way to reduce fluoride exposure is to invest in a reverse osmosis water filtration system. Drinking distilled water for 3-6 months may also reduce the soft tissue fluoride levels, but not bone levels. Soft tissue fluoride levels cause the greatest health problems.

    Thank you very much for all of your works, this site really honor its name very well. Keep on doing what you do best: opening eyes and minds!!!!

  • 1997 and released in 1989?

    Despite the findings occurring in 1997, they were not reluctantly released until 1989. I think you may have a typo here. I am interested in all you write.

      Thanks for picking this up Oscar. We’ll have the date(s) corrected once we confirm with the author.

    My children’s dentist and doctor have both prescribed fluoride pills for my daughters because we have well water. Is this something I need to stop giving them?

  • Picker22

    Well that certainly is a “different view.” Dr. Y also believed that AIDS was not from the HIV virus . .another different view.

    Y’all might want to read the proceedings which recently let to the California Carcinogen Identification Committee to decide that fluoride is not related to cancer.

    They are the folks that recently make Coke either change the formula or label their bottles as containing a carcinogen. That committee dances to no one’s tune other than legit science.

    New research has shown that fluorotic teeth (the only known side effect from water fluoridation) resist cavities.

    My advice to Becca is to stick with her doctors and physicians. . solid advice.

    Many people forget that these dangerously corrosive and cumulative hazardous waste pollutants known as fluorosilicic acid/silicofluorides and co-contaminants of mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium etc., are added to the water supplies, hence also contaminating all our drinks, beer, foods, et al, anything that is grown, produced or manufactured using ‘fluoridated water’:-
    Also it is appalling how any human being would want to consume these dangerously corrosive and cumulative hazardous waste pollutants and also even more appalling and brings into serious question, the integrity and agenda of any Government inflicting this on an entire population.

    Raw fluoridation chemical analyses of South Australia’s drinking water, listed below. This data has been scanned from original documents provided to Sapphire Eyes Productions by Dr. Andrew Harms & Ann Bressington. These documents show the toxic, heavy metal contaminants contained in the chemicals used to fluoridate your drinking water. These include lead, arsenic, mercury, uranium & more. ‘FIRE WATER’ FILM SOURCE:

    With the scourge of cancer devouring so many of our population I know who I believe:-
    FLUORIDE CAUSES CANCER – Dr John Yiamouyiannis “Our studies show that cancers of the gastrointestinal tract, kidney, bladder, breast and ovaries are those primarily associated with fluoride intake.” John Yiamouyiannis PhD, Cancer Control Journal, Vol. 5, no’s1 + 2, p. 75.

    I suggest you follow these two links to learn more about Dr. John Yiamouyiannis: – and:

    Dr. Yiamouyiannis was featured in a 1979 Consumer Reports article on fluoridation and he was criticized heavily in the article. He sued the Consumer Union for slander, and the suit was thrown out of court. He died of colo-rectal cancer at the age of 58, refusing all conventional treatment, instead heading to Mexico for laetrile and vitamin treatments.
    Fluoridation is recognized by over 100 medical, dental, and scientific organizations from around the world as safe and effective and a sound public dental health policy. The opponents to fluoridation have yet to convince one of these respected organizations to change their position and call for an end to fluoridation.
