fluoridated water causes cancer

Bob Woffinden reports in this article from today's issue of The Observer that fluoridated water causes bone cancer in boys.
Dr Vyvyan Howard, senior lecturer in toxico-pathology at the University of Liverpool, has studied the new material.

'At these ages the bones of boys are developing rapidly,' he said, 'so if the bones are being put together abnormally because fluoride is altering the bone structure, they're more likely to get cancer. It's biologically plausible, and the epidemiological evidence seems pretty strong - it looks as if there's a definite effect.'
The data which shows the link is found in Dr. Elise Bassin's doctoral dissertation on research done at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Bassin says in the article that her work is currently going through the peer-review process and that she hopes it will be published soon.
