The Battle Against Fluoridation
A 24-page pamphlet, Fluoridation Unmasked, has been printed in America by Miss Fanchon Battelle and we are trying to get some to sell over here; if we succeed, it will be notified in a future Gothic Ripples.
A Jew doctor named Irving D. Litwack, Health Officer for Long Beach, California, having formally recommended fluoridation of the municipal water supply as a means of improving the teeth of the community, Miss Battelle tackled him asking him to justify his recommendation by producing evidence of any experiments and tests on the strength of which it had been made. All she got in reply was in the usual phraseology of the fluoridation promoters who had coached Public Health Officers on the proper answers to give to critics of the scheme; these instructions had been given at the American Public Health Association Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, which Dr.Litwack had attended. It was clear from his reply that so far as public health was concerned, he was proposing not a remedy, but a dangerous experiment on the people.
