nephew, Dr. E.H. Bronner (a chemist who had also been a
prisoner of war during WWII) in a letter printed in The
Catholic Mirror, Springfield, MA, January 1952:
"It appears that the
citizens of Massachusetts are among the 'next' on the
agenda of the water poisoners (...)
"As a research chemist
of established standing, I built within the past 22
years, 3 American chemical plants and licensed 6 of my
53 patents. Based on my years of practical experience in
the health-food and chemical field, let me warn:
fluoridation of drinking water is criminal insanity,
sure national suicide. Don't do it.
"Even in small
quantities, sodium fluoride is a deadly poison to which
no effective antidote has been found. Every exterminator
knows that it is the most efficient rat-killer. ...
Sodium fluoride is entirely different from organic
calcium-fluoro-phosphate needed by our bodies and
provided by nature, in God's great providence and love,
to build and strengthen our bones and our teeth. This
organic calcium-fluoro-phosphate, derived from proper
foods, is an edible organic salt, insoluble in water and
assimilable by the human body, whereas the non-organic
sodium fluoride used in fluoridating water is instant
poison to the body and fully water soluble. The body
refuses to assimilate it.
laboratory experimentation by conscientious, patriotic
research chemists, and actual medical experience, have
both revealed that instead of preserving or promoting
'dental health,' fluoridated drinking water destroys
teeth, before adulthood and after, by the destructive
mottling and other pathological conditions it actually
causes in them, and also creates many other very grave
pathological conditions in the internal organisms of
bodies consuming it. How can it be called a "health"
plan? What's behind it?
"That any so-called
"doctors" would persuade a civilized nation to add
voluntarily a deadly poison to its drinking water
systems is unbelievable. It is the height of criminal
"Fluoridation of water
systems can be slow national suicide, or quick national
liquidation. It is criminal insanity--treason!" Dr. E.H.
