January 8, 2017: “Fluoride: Poison On Tap”

The following link is to the excellent documentary, “Fluoride: Poison on Tap”. It is a recent film, about the many health issues relating to the fluoridation of city water, toothpastes, mouthwashes, medications, infant bottled water, and even foods. Here is the link:   https://youtu.be/GqstwfKGzPI.

Thirty-plus years ago in chiropractic graduate school my professors were totally against the ingestion of fluoride. They revealed their reasons for that, and encouraged us to avoid all sources of it if we cared about our health and that of our patients. I have since refused all dental treatments that included fluoride, for myself and for my children, and always purchase herbal non-fluoridated toothpastes. I avoid drinking city water due to my dislike of the taste and smell of chlorine, and with the increasing fluoridation of water supplies in our country, it makes even more sense. You may have seen me carrying bottled well water with me whenever I travel, or spring water, rather than drinking tap water. Many people haven’t understood my choices.

This movie presents more reasons than I ever knew to avoid fluoride sources. I hope you will take the time to watch it! Many towns and cities are reversing past decisions to fluoridate their waters; unfortunately, other towns and cities are adding it in for the first time, proud to be joining the rest of our country in what is believed to be a public health service. Your knowledge can create change in this area if you choose to get active in your community.

The CDC has lists for all cities and/or counties in each state, with the information of who does and does not fluoridate the public water supplies. Go to  http://fluoridealert.org/researchers/states/ for the State Database. Where it says ‘Select a Topic’, click on your state, and it then links you to the CDC site. Alternately, you can go straight to the CDC site, looking at ‘My Water’s Fluoride Home’ on this link: https://nccd.cdc.gov/DOH_MWF/Default/Default.aspx. For example, I type in Vermont, Windham County, and it shows me every city/village in the county, and I see that the only water supply that is fluoridated in Windham County is Bellows Falls. Check out where you live, and where your children, family, and friends live, and forward the video to those who might be interested or who live in a place where the water is treated!

To your health and well-being, always!
