American biochemist warning of the connection between cancer and fluoride.

Dean Burk was an American biochemist: [1] medical researcher, and a cancer researcher at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute and the National Cancer Institute. In 1934, he developed the Lineweaver–Burk plot together with Hans Lineweaver.[2]


In 1937, Dean became a co-founder of the US National Cancer Institute (NCI), and headed its Cytochemistry department for over three decades.[3]

“In point of fact, fluoride causes more human cancer deaths than any other chemical. When you have power you don’t have to tell the truth. That’s a rule that’s been working in this world for generations. There are a great many people who don’t tell the truth when they are in power in administrative positions. Fluoride amounts to public murder on a grand scale. It is some of the most conclusive scientific and biological evidence that I have come across in my 50 years in the field of cancer research.”
Dean Burk [4]


After retiring from the NCI in 1974, Dean Burk remained active. He devoted himself to his opposition to water fluoridation.[5][6] According to Burk "fluoridation is a form of public mass murder."[7] Dean Burk argued on Dutch television against a water fluoridation proposal which was before the Dutch Parliament in the Netherlands.[7] He was a supporter of laetrile.[8]
