Is "consensus science" always correct?

"consensus opinion" from the medical community, including the American Dental Association, was that fluoride was a poison, and that laws should be enacted to remove as much of it as possible from our food and water supplies. So what changed? The latest report from the NRC (a research arm of the National Academy of Sciences) is now saying as little as 4 parts per million of the stuff can cause thyroid problems, osteoarthritis, and possibly even osteosarcoma in male children, if consumed over a long period of time. In other words, it looks like the pendulum is swinging back to the notion that fluoridation is NOT "safe and effective" after all. Other substances like leaded gasoline, ddt, and most recently Celebrex, have also fallen by the wayside. So why do the media still invoke "consensus science" so often?...

My Grandma's cat's weight problem.?

lost an ounce. I'm very worried about her. Her measurments are as follows, she is 24 inches long from her nose to the base of her tail, her circumference is 17 and 1/2 inches, and she's a medium sized cat. However please do not answer something like "Don't feed her at all that'll do it!" Because I do not find that funny, nor do I find helpful. Adult mature opinons would be most apperciated....
