Book Review: The Fluoride Deception

Author Christopher Bryson

Review by The Bioregulatory Medicine Institute

Book cover of the Fluoride Deception

Christopher Bryson's The Fluoride Deception is a meticulously researched and eye-opening exposé, encompassing 10 years of research, challenging the widely accepted narrative surrounding fluoride's safety and efficacy. Through extensive interviews, archival research, and scientific analysis, Bryson uncovers a troubling history of collusion between industry, government, and scientific institutions to promote fluoride as a beneficial substance while suppressing evidence of its potential harm.

The book argues convincingly that the push for water fluoridation was driven more by industrial and military interests than by public health concerns. Bryson reveals that fluoride, a byproduct of various industrial processes, including nuclear weapons production, posed a significant liability for powerful corporations and government agencies if deemed harmful. To avoid legal repercussions, these entities promoted the use of fluoride as beneficial.

One of the most disturbing aspects of Bryson's investigation is the suppression of scientific evidence. He recounts the story of Dr. Phyllis Mullenix, whose research on fluoride's negative impacts on cognitive function led to her dismissal from the Forsyth Dental Center. This example illustrates the book's broader theme of how dissenting voices in the scientific community were silenced or marginalized.

Bryson's journalistic background shines through in his narrative style, which reads "like a thriller" while it is a thoroughly researched book supported by extensive source notes and years of investigative reporting. He skillfully weaves together historical events, scientific studies, and personal accounts to create a comprehensive picture of what he terms "one of the great secret narratives of the industrial era".

The book raises important questions about the ethics of mass medication without individual consent and the potential long-term health consequences of fluoride exposure. Bryson links fluoride to a range of health issues, including bone deformities, hyperactivity, and various central nervous system disorders.

In conclusion, The Fluoride Deception is a thought-provoking and meticulously documented work that challenges readers to reconsider long-held beliefs about fluoride. It serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of scientific integrity and the need for ongoing scrutiny of public health policies.
