Dr Susheela Interview (August 12, 2008)
An interview with Dr. A.K. Susheela on her work in India diagnosing and treating patients with fluoride poisoning of the soft tissues. With early diagnosis the early symptoms are easy to reverse. Western doctors are totally oblivious of this disease which may be impacting millions of people living in fluoridated countries with a plethora of common complaints.
