ask LADWP to remove fluoride from our drinking water!

We don't want fluoride in our drinking water. If desired for dental purposes, it is abundantly available in toothpastes and mouthwashes, so it is unnecessary to put it in everyone's drinking water. According to the University of Iowa College of Dentistry, It is also abundant in our food supply, from produce to meat to beverages. It is well known that too much fluoride is toxic, and because it is so ubiquitous in our lives, many are getting quite substantial doses that exceed recommended safe limits. And many of us would rather not ingest fluoride at all, as it has been linked, even in small doses, to decreased IQ and bone damage.
