FLUORIDE, FREE RADICALS AND CANCER INCIDENCE IN EUROPEAN REGION
The Republic of Ireland is the only European Country with a Mandatory policy of Artificial Fluoridation of Drinking Water.
The U.S National Academies, National Research Council Scientific Committee stated in 2006 that Fluoride increases inflammatory responses in humans, causes cellular oxidative stress, increases the production of free radicals in the body and impairs immunity.
It is an accepted scientific fact that excessive FREE RADICALS cause cellular mutations increasing the risk of developing cancer.
It is also accepted that inflammation is a risk factor for many cancers.
Fluoride is also an inhibitor of melatonin, an important free radical scavenger. Reduced melatonin production from fluoride exposure further increases the risk of developing cancer.
According the World Health Organisation the Republic of Ireland has almost twice the cancer incidence of the European Region.
