Fluoride chemicals added to NYC's water supply were never safety-tested and are lead- and arsenic-laced industrial waste-products (hydrofluosiclicic acid). Fluoride overdose is rampant, discoloring children's teeth necessitating warnings by government health officials to avoid mixing fluoridated water with infant formula. Modern science indicates that ingesting fluoride does not reduce tooth decay and is harmful to health making water fluoridation a complete waste of taxpayers' money.

      Misinformed fluoridation promoters falsely assure unquestioning and confused legislators that fluoride-laced water is safe for everyone and no credible evidence proves otherwise. However, hundreds of studies and an abundance of evidence prove them wrong.

      Studies have shown that floride can do harm to people if ingested. Another reason is, because I don't feel the government has the right to dictate how me or my family take care of ourselves. We have the freedom of choice. Plus, its considered toxic waste.

      The government should not be forcing its citizens to consume medication such as flouride without their consent. Even if flouride were beneficial for dental health (which is highly debatable and controversial), there is much evidence that it has deleterious effects that far outweigh any dental benefits. Flouridation of water should be halted and people should be given the option to purchase flouride to add to their water in stores if they really desire to medicate themselves with this chemical industrial by-product. Furthermore, Hitler used flouride in water to pacify prisoners, not to improve their dental health.

      I have friends in NY, and when visiting them, I avoid all restaurants since they use water for cooking, drinking, etc, and don't care to ingest fluoride in any form. I don't even like to wash my hands there, since fluoride is absorbed by the skin.

      I see children who's bones are fracturing very easily. That didn't happen when I was a child. I am concerned for all the children who are being given this medication in doses far above the safe level. It's in the water, in the toothpaste, in the mouthwash, etc. The children are being overloaded with a known neuro-toxin. We must not do that to our beautiful children.
