From the July 2008 Idaho Observer

The Chinese news agency Xinhua reported July 10, 2008, that "Nearly 70 percent of U.S. residents who get water from community water systems now receive fluoridated water, according to a report published Thursday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)."

The report, Populations receiving Optimally Fluoridated Public Drinking Water—United States 1992-2006, stated the percentage of fluoridated Americans increased from 65.8 percent in 1992 to 69.2 percent in 2006.

fluoride, at or near levels added to U.S. water supplies,
present potential risks to the thyroid gland, according to the

fluoride/thyroid literature.(A)

Fluoride, in the form of silicofluorides, injected into 2/3 of U.S.

BOSTON - Harvard University said it is investigating whether a dentistry professor who edits a newsletter funded by a toothpaste maker played down research showing an increased cancer risk from drinking fluoridated tap water.

The school will work with the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences to review Chester Douglass’ research into fluoride exposure and osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, Harvard Medical School spokesman John Lacey said.
