COF-COF Media Release 25-Feb-2016 To The Canadian Press Regarding the 2016 McLaren et al Edmonton Calgary Fluoridation Cessation Study

COF-COF Media Release1) What does COF-COF think of the McLaren et al. Calgary-Edmonton study?

A fundamental scientific flaw invalidates the conclusions of the recent McLaren et al. fluoridation study concerning Calgary and Edmonton. Our attached graphs (see page 3), which contain both published and unpublished McLaren data, clearly evidence Calgary’s children’s teeth are better than still-fluoridated Edmonton. Moreover, inspection of how Calgary fares in both graphs shows no sudden change in dental caries following Calgary fluoridation cessation. Indeed, on both data graphs, one can observe unfluoridated Calgary’s dental decay is now approaching fluoridated Edmonton’s decay rates. One wonders how the McLaren researchers were able to imply risk from Calgary’s fluoridation cessation. read more
