This interesting three-minute video from a Tennessee TV station reviews the major problems of water fluoridation with a number of experts and residents. They're so concerned about fluoridation, they've asked Gov. Phil Bredesen (D) to remove it from their state's drinking water.
The problem with fluoride has become especially acute among babies, according to the video report, as the American Dental Association has recently recommended mothers not use fluoridated water in their child's formula, further evidence the recent Iowa Fluoride Study revealed grave concerns about this harmful chemical.
It's been a long time in coming, but the news media -- seemingly tone deaf and out of touch about many health concerns -- may be finally recognizing and understanding the risks associated with drinking fluoridated water.
As far as I am concerned, considering that kids are being harmed by the toxicity of fluoride in their bones and teeth, you have more than ample reason to eliminate fluoride from your home and all your drinking water. However, should you remain skeptical, I urge you to check out my fluoride links page that goes into great detail documenting the clear and incontrovertible evidence that fluoride in drinking water is toxic.
There may be a justification to use fluoride topically to limit the spread of cavities but there is no question that it always be avoided in drinking water. The problem with using it "topically" is that invariably some of it is absorbed into the body where it can only cause harm.
Another reminder, 11 EPA employee unions requested a moratorium on fluoridated drinking water some 18 months ago and asked the agency to recognize the cancer risks associated with such programs.
This is a great video to learn more about the poison many Americans invite unknowingly into their homes, and I would strongly encourage you to watch it as a substitute for one of your normal TV shows. This will be a FAR more productive use of your time.
