The headline of Sunday’s paper: “Chinese Fluoride questioned” caught the attention of numerous people in our area.
One person in particular who is a government employee has direct contact with the bags of fluoride. The worker states without hesitation that the deadly international skull and bones are printed boldly on the bag along with the label: “PRODUCT OF JAPAN.” Mayor Jones has spoken with LAWCO and according to your article, “They are more afraid of Japanese fluoride than Chinese.” (p. 10).
Another point that might be clarified is support of the American Dental Association (ADA) for use of fluoride. According to Dr. Paul Connett, PhD and other researchers, the ADA issued a warning in November 2006 urging parents not to use water with fluoride to prepare infant formula. The original backers of fluoride, now speak differently on fluoride. In 2010 over 2000 dentists, doctors and other professional persons have signed a petition to ban fluoride in public drinking water. Anyone can check Fluoride Action Network (www.fluoridealert.org) to learn the truth about a known neurotoxin in our water. Most European nations refuse to use fluoride.
The subject was dealt with in a letter from Elizabeth Doyle, Chief of Human Risk Assessment Branch in the US EPA she wrote: “The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) prohibits EPA from requiring the addition of any substance (including fluoride) to drinking water for preventative health care purposes.” (July 9, 2009) Is this not sufficient evidence of error in adding fluoride to drinking water?
For those who do not wish to dig deeper for the facts, it is only necessary to look at the warning on a tube of toothpaste containing fluoride. It states: “Keep away from children. If more is swallowed accidentally than needed for brushing, consult your physician immediately or report to a Poison Control Center.”
Scientists know “fluoride” is actually a powder collected from scrubbers in industry that is put in bags or trucks, then sold to cities for adding to drinking water. If this product (of any nation) is too toxic for ocean or bayou dumping, how can it be put in our drinking water?
