Using her FBI intelligence analyst skills, Melissa Gallico identifies fluoride as the root cause of the modern acne epidemic. Chronicling the existing acne research, she reveals where each study went wrong and what they missed. She shares her personal 20-year struggle with severe cystic acne not only on her face, but on her neck, chest, back, and even inside her ears. She explains how her travels around the world and her intelligence work helped her pinpoint exactly what was causing her treatment-resistant flare-ups--fluoridated water, foods, dental products, and the systemic build-up of childhood fluoride treatments. She details how to avoid fluoridated foods and beverages and explains how sources of fluoride work their way deeply into our daily lives through water as well as fluoride-based pesticides, pharmaceuticals, and common household products.
The author exposes the corrupt science used to convince people of fluoride's health benefits and examines the systemic toxicity of fluoride, including its anti-thyroid and neurotoxin effects, how it remains in the body for years, and how it can cause the symptoms of illnesses, such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and depression. She explains how to displace fluoride stored in your bones and tissues through nutrition and the careful use of iodine.
Offering a guide to freeing yourself from persistent adult acne, Gallico shows that it is possible to heal your skin even when dermatologists and their prescriptions have failed.

"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 *
