Fluoride Can Cause Cancer, Studies Show

There are 4 comments on the www.reuters.com story from Sep 15, 2011, titled Fluoride Can Cause Cancer, Studies Show. In it, www.reuters.com reports that:

Many published human and animal studies have reported an association between fluoride and various cancers, including valid and unrefuted scientific evidence that fluoride can increase the risk of osteosarcoma (a type of bone cancer) in boys and young men, reports the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) in its recent submission to the California Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA). (1)

OEHHA requested public comments on its recently-released document "Evidence on the Carcinogenicity of Fluoride and Its Salts," (2) where OEHHA states:
"multiple lines of evidence…appear to support several plausible hypotheses: that fluoride is incorporated into bones…where it can stimulate cell division of osteoblasts [bone-forming cells]...; induce genetic changes; induce other cellular changes leading to malignant transformation, and alter cellular immune response…thereby increasing the risk of development of osteosarcomas."

The California Carcinogen Identification Committee voted 6-0 that fluoride is not a carcinogen.

The committee's decision joins similar findings by the US National Research Council in 2006, the National Health and Research Council of Australia in 2007, the Department of Public Health of Scotland in 2008 and the European Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks in 2011.
