Well, I just thought I'd drop in and share a fun little fact with you. Did you know that if your kids eat a bowl of cereal and drink a Coke, that
they will already be over the recommended dosage of fluoride by 130%?
Did you also know that fluoride is actually a byproduct of the aluminum smelting process, fertilizer, and pharmaceutical manufacturing? And did you
know that that the cost of disposing fluoride is pretty staggering? So, is it any wonder that it is entirely convenient for them to use our drinking
water supply for their fluoride dumping grounds?
There's more too, but I'll let you embark on your own journey to find out just how bad this stuff is. There is NO reason this stuff should be in
our drinking water. I'm sure you will agree after doing a little reading of your own.
In case you haven't really embarked on an internet search of fluoride yet, you can start here:
I didn't know that about cereal and soda....
It seems to me, that with so many things, we just take for granted that "everybody knows Fluoride is safe."
Look how long it took to prove Nicotine was bad for us -- almost as long as it is taking to prove that Marijuana is harmless.
We used to just assume that there was this basic decency and that our government wouldn't lie to us if it might hurt kids. Well how long did they not
bother to test Chinese toys for lead paint?
So, if it's expensive to pull Fluoride out of water and food -- which would seep in our water supply just from having so much of it in fertilizer.
Isn't it a lot more cost effective to just bribe a few officials and create some bogus studies?
I mean, we have ice caps melting, thousands of scientists saying there is global warming -- either THAT is a conspiracy, or a few Oil companies,
paying think tanks and Bill O'Reilly is a conspiracy to discredit the Global Warming theory. Either way -- SOMEBODY is getting paid to lie, and doing
it well enough that the "jury is still out." Me, I'm thinking its the Oil companies and right wing pundits because they lie all the dang time.
In general, I've lost faith in so much since Bush took office. The Fed, EPA, FDA, CIA, NSA, CDC, WHO, and all the three-letter agencies have become
merely shills for the groups they regulate or spy on, or bankrupt. If you want to sue for a defective drug -- well they got a pass by the FDA. If you
want to sue a coal plant for Asthma -- they got a clean bill of health from the EPA.
Fluoride may be fine as an industrial waste product from making Aluminum, but I'm damn sure now, that if it weren't -- it would be portrayed as the
cavity fighting wonder and everybody knows it is safe -- just as it is now. Don't worry our pretty little heads conspiracy theorists.
>> This is how societies crumble. Decent tax-paying family men like myself, stop believing anything they are told. If the EPA told me the sky was
blue, or the CDC said I need to inoculate myself with this required vaccine or I'm going to turn into a pig -- I'm not going to do it. I don't have
any guarantee what-so-ever that some flunk wasn't paid to lie to me.
>> This is why we have to prosecute so many BushCo crimes. And all the other abuses of the public trust.
