I'm not sure if lithium will ever be added to water supplies because I'm not sure if there's any point. It's already there, for the most part at least.

This would be funny if it weren't so scary.
What world am I living in???
1984 was supposed to be a book, not an instruction manual!!!
Can I get off of this ride now, I thnk I am going to puke!!
In 50 years people will scoff at the idea of having drinking water without added lithium, just the way they scoff at the idea of drinking unflouridated water.
"Flouride is good for your teeth, the Dentist told me so. It helps keep your teeth strong and white and healthy".
"Lithium is good for your brain function. It helps maintain a sense of well being and balances the chemicals in our brains, the Doctor told me so".
This is what our kids will be taught in Kindergarten.
This is what Doctors will support for healthy brain function.
This is a world I officially don't want to live in anymore!!!!
I don't like the fact that this is even being TALKED about!!!!
If this is a joke,......IT ISN"T FUNNY!!!!
If this is from an unreliable source......SCREW THEM for making me # my pants when I read the article!!!
Either way this pans out I don't care....I want out of this nightmare!!!!

What effect would the consumption of lithium have?
Despite uncovering what he thought was a public health breakthrough, Schrauzer was denounced for suggesting that supplemental lithium might offer a cure-all for myriad social woes.
"People were convinced I was trying to impose mass mind control," Schrauzer, now 80 years old and a professor emeritus at the University of California, San Diego and director of the Biological Trace Element Research Institute, told The Daily. "There was widespread ignorance about what lithium does and what we as scientists were proposing to do with it. There was then, and there is now"
