Letter: Fluoride and thyroid trouble

With fluoridation of city water in the news lately, those who support this practice might consider the news that a study published in February in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health showed new evidence that people drinking fluoridated water have twice the amount of hypothyroidism as those drinking nonfluoridated water.

The scientists found their results credible and plausible to call for complete re-evaluation of water fluoridation.
