I recently co-signed a letter along with activist Erin Brockovich to the Institute of Medicine/National Academy of Sciences and the Food and Nutrition board to end fluoridation. Read below for our link to the full letter as well as to Newsweek's recent coverage of the Cochrane Review, entitled "Fluoridation May Not Prevent Cavities, Scientific Review Shows".

Dr. Dan Eyink & Erin Brockovich Submit Letter to Institute of Medicine to End Fluoridation

It is the responsibility of the Institute of Medicine to base nutritional recommendations on up-to-date science and evidence, not dated dental endorsements. The April 27, 2015 letter cosigned by Erin Brockovich, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, Matthews & Associates of Houston, Dan Eyink, M.D.,  Jean Nordin-Evans, D.D.S., and Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D. of MIT, holds the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), Institute of Medicine (IOM), and Food & Nutrition Board accountable for all the science concerning the adverse health effects of dietary fluoride in the context of their 'safe and adequate' dietary reference intake values. Unless they act promptly, the NAS and IOM will be culpable for the harm caused by fluoridation. 
The Cochrane Collaboration is considered to provide the gold standard in evidence based reviews of health science by doctors and researchers. The authors found very little evidence that fluoride is effective in reducing dental decay, but did find evidence confirming that fluoridation increases fluorosis rates.

Newsweek then published an article by journalist Douglas Main on the Cochrane review, giving it widespread coverage in the US. The article is entitled "Fluoridation May Not Prevent Cavities, Scientific Review Shows." 

The following summary by Fluoride Action Network lists some key points from the article:

  • "The review identified only three studies since 1975-of sufficient quality to be included-that addressed the effectiveness of fluoridation in the population at large. These papers determined that fluoridation does not reduce cavities to a statistically significant degree", says study co-author Anne-Marie Glenny, a health science researcher at Manchester University in the United Kingdom.
  • One 2001 study covered in the Cochrane review of two neighboring British Columbia communities found that when fluoridation was stopped in one city, cavity prevalence actually went down slightly amongst schoolchildren, while cavity rates in the fluoridated community remained stable.
  • Studies that attest to the effectiveness of fluoridation were generally done before the widespread usage of fluoride-containing dental products like rinses and toothpastes in the 1970s and later, according to the recent Cochrane study. 
  • Nearly all these papers were flawed in significant ways. For example, 70 percent of the studies made no effort to control for important confounding factors such as dietary sources of fluoride other than tap water, diet in general or ethnicity. 
  • When it comes to fluoridation research, even the best studies are not high quality. Although this was already well-established, it doesn't seem to be well-known.
  • One thing the review definitively concluded: Fluoridation causes fluorosis.
  • But most scientists interviewed for this article don't necessarily think fluoridation's uncertain benefits justify its continuation without more stringent evidence, and argue for more research into the matter.

Salad Days - Homemade Vinaigrette Recipes


Salad Dressing

Homemade vinaigrettes are simple to make and healthier for you than store bought salad dressings. Many salad dressings contain high amounts of processed poly-unsaturated oils like corn oil, soybean oil, canola oil and vegetable oil - which you should avoid at all costs.



Honey Mustard Vinaigrette 


� cup red wine vinegar
1 tsp raw honey
2 Tbsp Grey Poupon mustard
� lemon, juiced
Pinch of thyme & marjoram
� tsp Celtic sea salt
� tsp cracked black pepper
� cup extra virgin olive oil 

Mix 1st seven ingredients with a whisk and then slowly stir in olive oil. Shake well, store in the refrigerator up to one month. Use with new potatoes, roast chicken or strong flavored meats and vegetables. 


Lemon Vinaigrette

2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
� lemon, juiced
1 tsp Celtic sea salt
� tsp white pepper
1 shallot, minced
8 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Mix 1
st five ingredients with a whisk and then slowly stir in olive oil. If you don't have all of the ingredients above, simply use an "almost empty" mustard container, add in olive oil and vinegar, give a good shake and you've got yourself a healthy salad dressing.



Enjoy the rest of your summer!
