A recap of what one learns from the wonderful book The Fluoride Deception by Christopher Bryson. Jon Rappoport wrote this article a while back, and it remains a very important summary.
Excerpt: In 1997, Joel Griffiths and Chris Bryson, two respected mainstream journalists, peered into an abyss. They found a story about fluorides that was so chilling it had to be told. The Christian Science Monitor, who had assigned the story, never published it.
Griffiths discovered hundreds of documents from the World War II era. These included papers from the Manhattan Project, launched to build the first A-bomb. Griffiths/Bryson write: "Fluoride was the key chemical in atomic bomb production...millions of tons...were essential for the manufacture of bomb-grade uranium and plutonium for nuclear weapons throughout the Cold War."
The documents reveal that fluoride was the most significant health hazard in the US A-bomb program, for workers and for communities around the manufacturing facilities. Griffiths/Bryson: "Much of the original proof that fluoride is safe for humans in low doses was generated by A-bomb program scientists, who had been secretly ordered to provide 'evidence useful in litigation' [against persons who had been poisoned by fluoride and would sue for damages]... The first lawsuits against the US A-bomb program were not over radiation, but over fluoride damage, the [government] documents show." A-bomb scientists were told they had to do studies which would conclude that fluorides were safe.
