Wow, good post although many new questions were advanced in the replies than inferences to the original post.
I'd like to throw in my two dollars(soon to be equaled to 1929 pennies-lol).
I'm in my early 20s and was diagnosed with ADD around 11yrs or so. Since then I have been prescribed Dexadrine or generically DextroAmphetamine- its
basically legal speed and I believe certain armies have issued it to pilots for long flights. I'm pretty hyper at times but never felt worthy of the
H in ADHD so I consider myself just ADD. I've always grappled with the BS of ADD and thought maybe I was just a slacky generation-whatever. I do
enjoy the feeling I get on speed pills(my only prescribed med) but it does almost seem conspiratorial how easily I've had access to it through the
years. My heart truely goes out to the children of today- they're exposed to chemicals and savage "vaccines" from day one and when they're f*cked
by 10 they're get more synthetic chemicals as a cure-real nice modern world.
I grew up in the same house until adulthood and we had tap water from the ground. After looking at a good deal of Fluoride info I concluded that it
was likely bad and at the least unnecessary. So I've since switched over to baking soda powder for the teeth. My guess is that ground or well water
in rural America hass relatively less fluoride than city water so I've wondered about my exposure as a youth. I do remember having to bite on that
fluoride foam thing at the dentist when I was young- absolutely terrible!
The original post was also interesting because I've never heard the tobacco-ADD link but I am a smoker since about 14yrs old. My parents never smoked
but I picked it up through peers. I could totally see a propensity for ADDers to not only pick it up but also satisfy those impulsive brain triggers.
I'm trying to quit but am interested in the nicotine benefits expressed earlier in the post. I'm always ranting about fluoride to my friends and
family and they always get me back by saying,"and your smoking ismuchbetter." Now I'll have at least some refutation there.
Now a city-dweller, Ive also switched over to the Reverse-osmosis gallon jugs from the grocery store but I'm paranoid to the extent that I'm not
entirely confident in those filling-machines. Anyone with info? Also those gallon jugs seem very shady. Why bother pouring clean-water into a jug
that's dirty and has Bph? Anyone?-DO those cheap gallon jugs have BPH?
I've entirely cut out soda/pop from my diet but do buy an occasional coffee which I totally assume has fluoride water. Also, I do like beer and put
faith in microbreweries for quality over the cheapies but I'd really love to see a beer bottled that said "brewed using only reverse osmosis
water." I'd probably buy that beer exclusively-forget the taste of the rockies. Ive read that Cheap wines are very high in fluorides and wish I knew
or had a reference to check the levels. Anyone?
Those of you with questions on how fluoridation became standard practice in US drinking water- I've read and heard that as a byproduct of metal
production(true) that the metal industry has lobbied with the ADA eliminate their waste via human consumption. If they're selling this crap to water
utilities rather than paying them to take it- they're making a killing!
I have read that in Mountainous parts of Western India and Pakistan the ground water is so heavily fluoridated naturally that the WHO has stepped in
But I think ATSers are wise enough or at least capable of entertaining the idea fluoride is in our water for ulterior reasons than tooth-decay
I believe its mostly for pacification purposes-Where else in the world could George Bush be re-elected and then this contrived 2008 election take
place? America baby. To Non-American ATSers- most Americans are the most zombied-out animate units on the planet; they are oblivious to the reality
around them and soon we'll see the price for this.
