Stop Fluoridating Our Water!

Bob our water is our life. We are the newborns,(The American Dental Association (ADA), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) have now issued recommendations that infants under six months of age should receive no fluoride supplementation.} We are the aged,  We do know that the use of 

drinking water containing as little as 1.2 to 3.0 ppm of fluorine will cause such 

developmental disturbances in bones as osteosclerosis, spondylosis, and osteopetrosis, 

as well as goiter, and we cannot run the risk of producing such serious systemic disturbances in 

applying what is at present a doubtful procedure intended to prevent development of dental 

disfigurements among children ... because of our anxiety to find some therapeutic procedure that 

will promote mass prevention of caries, the seeming potentialities of fluorine appear speculatively 

attractive, but, in the light of our present knowledge or lack of knowledge of the chemistry of the 

subject, the potentialities for harm far outweigh those for good."
