Reviews

"This intriguing personal account of one woman's experience with acne is a detailed case report that could have been published in the peer-reviewed literature. Using scientific deduction, careful observations, and self-experimentation--a process used by Nobel Laureates such as Barry Marshall, Werner Forssmann, and Ralph Steinman--Melissa Gallico figured out that the cause of her chronic acne was the fluoride added to her drinking water. The fact that other people who read her book also report that their acne cleared up when they switched to fluoride-free beverages and foods suggests this is an area that deserves rigorous clinical investigation." * Hardy Limeback, D.D.S., Ph.D., head of preventive dentistry at the University of Toronto (ret.) *
"This is an astounding piece of work and a 'must-read' for people wanting the true story about how and why and to what terrible effect the addition of fluoride to drinking water is having. As Gallico's riveting personal story attests, public water fluoridation is, in essence, a hazardous waste management tool that is damaging our health in ways we have yet to fully comprehend. Her deep research into this area and the clear, arresting manner in which she presents it is a valuable, even crucial, contribution to ending the antiquated and dangerous practice of adding fluoride to public drinking water." * Bill Hirzy, Ph.D., senior scientist at the EPA (ret.) *
"Melissa Gallico has authored an engaging book, one that is enjoyable to read despite the seriousness of the subject matter. As she notes, 'it doesn't take a degree in medicine' (or dentistry or science) to appreciate the importance of personal observations in matters of personal health, or to understand the potential consequences of one-size-fits-all medication of the public through the drinking water supply. Fluoride sensitivity (including dermatological, endocrinological, gastrointestinal, and other effects) has been in the medical literature for decades, unrefuted, and deserves the wider awareness that Gallico's work will bring." * Kathleen M. Thiessen, Ph.D., senior scientist at Oak Ridge Center for Risk Analysis *
"...it's hard to not get fascinated by the rabbit hole Gallico uncovers in The Hidden Cause of Acne. Readers will discover more about the science and process that went into fluoridization of our water supply, as well as the many unexpected places fluoride can be found in everyday life, like pesticides used on food crops, medicines, even wine. And readers who are long-term sufferers of adult acne may well benefit from having this new information." * San Francisco Book Review *
