Letter: Fluoride benefits

Peter,
If you read the finding of the article you sited, you would find that "The Centre for Health Services, University of Kent has found a clear association " did not find that at all. That is yours or someone else's misrepresentation of what was written. It was a "cross-sectional study design using secondary data to develop binary logistic regression models of predictive factors for hypothyroidism prevalence at practice level using 2012 data on fluoride levels in drinking water," so no control, no actual test done, just analyzing some data. There is no correlation (association) within this study of flouride and hypothyroidism.
This is not much different than you sitting in your house unable to see outside, and hear the sound of a dog barking and then going outside and upon seeing a dog say "That was the dog that barked". You don't know that was the dog that barked, you can only surmise it might be, maybe there was another dog that barked, and then ran away before you went outside. Maybe someone was playing dog noises on a stereo, maybe a noisy car drove by, that somehow made a sound that sounded just like a dog barking, maybe someones Minah bird escaped and landed on your porch, and the only thing it did was bark like a dog. My point is unless a study, with controls is done you cannot correlate the findings of this report to be ones that show a cause and effect from fluoride.
The Study showed "We found that higher levels of fluoride in drinking water provide a useful contribution for predicting prevalence of hypothyroidism. " This does not mean that fluoride is what causes the midlands area to have higher cases of hypothyroidism, just that it was found to be an indicator. Maybe there is something else in the water, or maybe it is coal burning plant and they breathe in something that causes hypothyroidism, or some other activity that occurs there.

22-year-old Lawrence man sentenced to 25 years to life for raping child he met on Facebook

If he had gone to trial, he would have had many more charges against him, a few of which together would mean he would never get out of jail, now he stands a chance of getting out.

Kansas attorney general asks state Supreme Court to block same-sex marriage licenses after first wedding performed

Also, it seems like you are devout Bible worshiper, have you been working on Deuteronomy 17:2-7?

Kansas attorney general asks state Supreme Court to block same-sex marriage licenses after first wedding performed

On the question asked; "Where exactly did Jesus clearly say that "marriage is between a man and woman."
Both of your answers fail, Jesus didn't say this, it starts with "The Lord God said..."
Next, no where in it does it say anything about 'marriage', It says 'united' "and they will become one flesh", this seems to mean the happy couple can create a baby (one-flesh from two).
I think you need to read your own posts and live by what you are telling others:
"So again please spend more time worrying about your business and less about what others may or may not be doing."

How important is it for students to learn cursive writing?

So people will print their signatures in the future? Sad.

KU journalism professor Guth placed on leave as school reviews comment he made on Twitter on shootings

I think as you get older, especially after 40 to 50, you'll recognize that although the legal age of majority is 18 in the US, the real maturation age, particularly that of brain development, is 25 or older.. Damn Kids.... :)

I disagree. I think more people have been killed by words, as they are the basis for the problem and the 'solution' to the problem.

Lawrence city commissioners narrowly approve ban on porch couches

Mike Amyx and Jeremy Farmer will be getting my vote next election. Not the others, I'll vote for anyone else.
Ridiculous waste of our money, when so many other things are more important.
