An alarmist entry in the already alarmist pantheon of anti-fluoridation literature, a genre which began to flourish within weeks of the first appearance of artificially fluoridated drinking water in the 1940s. The authors claim that fluoride is a "cumulative enzyme poison in a class with arsenic and cyanide...1000 times more toxic than sulfur dioxide;" and that water fluoridation was developed not to protect children's teeth, but to provide a profitable outlet for waste products from the fertilizer industry. Together with the appropriately sensational prospectus.
