The troubling, tangled web of inter-connected relationships among study authors, reviewers, journal editors and commenters of some of the studies most frequently referenced by anti-fluoridation activists. (PDF)  Initial associations were highlighted by Ken Perrott.

The authors, reviewers, editors and commenters of these studies work within a “Filter Bubble” that needs to be exposed and broken to prevent the ability of dubious studies to be published and promoted – unfortunately the bubble extends to include members of the public, most of whom are not qualified to personally evaluate study limitations.
 

 Authors and co-authors, Reviewers, Editors and Commenters of the  22 anti-F neurological studies listed below
The four studies singled out by Connett & referenced in Ken Perrott’s article above are red-highlighted in the list of studies.
Those who have contributed to more than four of the 22 studies are highlighted.
