Fluoride violates my freedom

By From page A14 | September 29, 2013

Fluoridation is not for me — and of no benefit to my health. I grew up in Wilmette, Ill., where they put fluoride in the water in the 1950s. It made no difference. I still had my share of cavities. The dentist coated my teeth with the stuff and still it made no difference.

There are alternatives to mass medication to water fluoridation and it violates my freedom of choice.

This is just like the scam of PG&E’s “smart meters,” saying they’re good but the reality is, there are no controlled studies. The bad effects of smart meters and fluoride outweigh the good.

The main predictor of dental disease is poverty, not the level of fluoride in the water.

Finally, it is too expensive. I know the city wants our money, but guess what? The money to pay the city is running out!
