There are many other helpful websites but the sites above are a good place to start, especially with regard to the health effects of fluoride and forced fluoridation. If you want to fight forced fluoridation, I recommend also looking for local activist groups and sources of information if you haven’t already. If you want to read journal articles, you can find a large number via the Fluoride Action Network’s Study Tracker and the Fluoride Journal. There is also Google Scholar.

The next page lists books and other sources from 1916 to 2004.
