Having read that article I feel that there is a word missing from your post.
As in there MIGHT be a link between fluoride and cancer.
There is also a link between toast and cancer.
And bacon, and ham, and...
What that article is saying is that there is a yet to be peer reviewed dissertation paper
that suggests with an unspecified level of confidence that there is an unspecified increase
in risk of a vary rare form of an already very rare disease.
Childhood cancer is very rare (circa 150 cases per million in the uk, or 0.015😵
the cancer of this study accounts for 3% of childhood cancers (0.00045% of kids)
So even if this caused a massive 50% increase in risk of kids getting this cancer
you are talking about an extra 0.000225% of kids getting cancer.
Or 2.25 kids per million. Or at a mortality rate of 50% 1 extra child death per million kids.
Assuming (and it's a big assumption) as I say that this causes a massive 50% increase in risk.
Now I personally don't believe in fluoridation of the water supply as it means those of us that
use fluoride toothpaste get a double dose. And fluoride can certainly cause health issues in
large enough doses.
But the article you linked to is lacking in perspective. And almost all of the relevant details.
