Message Subject IMPORTANT! - Fluoride Linked to #1 Cause of Death in New Research
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
Not going to read 7 pages of anti-fluoride idiocy. I read the original research paper. They were studying the effectiveness of using a fluoride tracer with a CAT scan in order to image atherosclerosis.

But whatever, some moronic website misreads a research paper, puts out a flat out incorrect headline and you morons eat it up.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8954905

You have a poor ability to abstract and deduce from evidence, not to mention a lack of rudimentary reading comprehension skill.

But the researchers did not, for they cite in their conclusion...

CONCLUSION: sodium [¹⁸F]fluoride PET/CT might be useful in the evaluation of the atherosclerotic process in major arteries, including coronary arteries. An increased fluoride uptake in coronary arteries may be associated with an increased cardiovascular risk.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8951556

Yeah, I'm such a bad reader and thinker that I managed to become my class valedictorian and am read by tens of thousands of people worldwide in my field.

In any case, the increased uptake once again refers to the tracer they are using - fluoride. In other words, if someone has calcification occurring in their coronary arteries then that is probably a risk factor for heart disease.

Fluoride binds with calcium. That's why they are using it as a tracer for CAT scans. They inject you with it so it will bind with any calcification deposits and then scan you.

If the CAT scan shows increased uptake of that tracer in your coronary arteries then chances are you have calcification going on there and are at risk for heart disease.

Of course, if you weren't a grade A moron you would've read it properly instead of twisting their words to fit your fantasy.
