To Johnny Johnson

JOHNSON: "Effective: It reduces cavities by at least 25% or more for everyone, regardless of color, socio-economic status, religion, ethnicity, or education."  

You've been asked this many times now, and are always unable to provide the evidence:  

Provide ONE scientific study which show this effectiveness of water fluoridation, and which has accounted for established confounding factors such as race, gender, age, total intake, tooth eruption, brushing and other oral hygiene factors, socio-economic status, etc..

Response - Johnny Johnson

That's funny. Ask for one reference, move the bar. Ask for another study, move the bar. 

What's next, asking for a study that was done on the 4th Sunday in every other month, but only of it's a full moon?

Response - Paul Melters

Isn't it odd how you are trying to wiggle out of this again? 

Just ONE reference is asked for. 

If you have such "overwhelming evidence" and "countless studies" - then surely this will be no problem for you? 

Again: 

Provide ONE scientific study which show this effectiveness of water fluoridation, and which has accounted for established confounding factors such as race, gender, age, total intake, tooth eruption, brushing and other oral hygiene factors, socio-economic status, etc..

Response - Johnny Johnson

The Community Preventive Services Taskforce evaluates this type of literature and produce Community Guides for government and healthcare agencies to refer to for science-based outcomes. It is this group that you should look to for their evaluations of the credible literature.

Response - Paul Melters

I am asking YOU to back up your claims.

You accuse everyone who questions fluoride safety of abusing the "science". 

Now let's see who is really abusing it, shall we? 

Where are these "countless" studies? 

You wrote:

"Effective: It reduces cavities by at least 25% or more for everyone, regardless of color, socio-economic status, religion, ethnicity, or education." 

Again: 

Provide ONE scientific study which show this effectiveness of water fluoridation, and which has accounted for established confounding factors such as race, gender, age, total intake, tooth eruption, brushing and other oral hygiene factors, socio-economic status, etc..

Response - Johnny Johnson

BTW, do you have credibly conducted scientific literature you'd like to share with the parameters you're asking for, which shows overwhelmingly that fluoridation isn't effective?

Just sayin' prove it ain't so only goes along with your conspiracy tactics.

Response - Paul Melters

Don't come with another straw man. 

Just ONE reference is asked for. 

If you have such "overwhelming evidence" and "countless studies" - then surely this will be no problem for you? 

Again: 

Provide ONE scientific study which show this effectiveness of water fluoridation, and which has accounted for established confounding factors such as race, gender, age, total intake, tooth eruption, brushing and other oral hygiene factors, socio-economic status, etc..
