Alaska fluoridation news:

Artificial fluoride: No longer in Fairbanks water (see second article)!

Fairbanks' Fluoride Task Force final report - it recommends halting fluoridation!

Palmer, Alaska fluoridates no more! 10/25/11

Decades of rural Alaska fluoridation programs (1960's thru 1990's) failed to improve the dental health of Alaska Natives

115 Alaska towns halted fluoridation after Hooper Bay's fatal fluoridation accident

The fluoridation chemical once added to Fairbanks' tapwater was 34 times more toxic than our groundwater's natural calcium fluoride content (compare rat lethal dosages - i.e. LD50)

"Trolling" for fluoride victims: Might Fairbanks taxpayers be liable for fluoridation illnesses?

Fairbanks reduced its fluoride concentration to 0.7 ppm, before halting its fluoridation program. See the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology's review of this "dosage"

Fairbanks' fluoridated tap water was supplied to at least 21,000 Borough residents not directly connected to city water. (Compare numbers in these links)
