It used to be used as rat poison. It was a toxic waste, that some really good salesman convinced the government to put into our water supply.
They cite new studies suggesting fluoride leads to brittle bones, cancer, kidney disease, neurological problems and other ailments, including lower IQs. Proof positive if you ask me. I think I read that our national average is down 20 points from the 50's.
20 IQ points may not seem a lot to you... but I think if Americans had those IQ points, they wouldn't have put George Bush in office twice!
It baffles my mind that the government would add anything to our water supply. I say leave it up to the average American to decide for themselves how much Fluoride to consume... we'd get plenty from our toothpaste!
The government says the limit of a safe dosage of Fluoride for humans (the most you can consume) is 1 mg. per day.. yet in the same breath says that there are .25 mg of water in an 8oz. glass of water!!
And they also say you're supposed to drink 8 glasses of water a day!
Double the safe amount of fluoride .
Where is the outrage??
