I remember the little paper cups our teachers passed out everyday to take our fluoride tablets. the health warnings were there, my parents had even signed a release so that I could participate in the program starting at age 6. Little did I know, that the fluoride treatments I was given was the same ingredient to rid rats, and roaches. I have left an amazing article to a link that talks about fluoride and the risks to public health through cross links. We are being poisoned, you know, by the people we would least suspect. http://www.fluoridation.com/atomicbomb.htm

Believe me I know. I've mentioned this a few times here at mylot and how fluoride is something that is everywhere and yet it is very dangerous. Society worries and complains about many things but doesn't even look at fluoride for the most part. For myself growing up I had well water, no fluoride in it, and I used baking soda to clean my teeth. I never had a cavity. My sister in the mean time was brushing three times a day with Crest with fluoride. She had tons of cavities. When I had to get braces the dentist stated I had to use a fluoride toothpaste. Not long afterwards I started to get cavities. Then I moved and we had fluoridated water. I started loosing my teeth due to holes forming in them. Yes I was brushing and all that we are supposed to do, it made them worse. I stopped and went back to using baking soda and it stopped. Here are a few more links for you to check out: http://www.fluoridealert.org/ http://www.sweetliberty.org/issues/health/flouridedangers.html http://www.eves-best.com/fluoride-dangers.htm This last one is very interesting because it talks about the dangers of using fluoridated water with infant formula. How the ADA even says not to use it because babies get too much in their systems.

ok, this is ticking me off, really bad! because I was reading that fluoride is more toxic than Lead, and in my town, they are doing away with all things lead, yet our water still has fluoride in it!But still, it explains a lot of things in my past, such as why I have avoided water all these years from the tap preferring bottled water, or other sources. SWEET! now, time to get word out!

Check your bottled water. Some of those have fluoride in them as well. Amazing isn't it? So many believe that it's good for us when really it's not.

Tap water cannot be believed, recently I heard from Italy they got a snake thru the water pipe.

Our water here in our place is safe because they put fluoride in it. But we are not really trusting it so we buy a filter for the water. Safety is important so we did it.
