Reject Fluoride Propaganda

Since reading the news of Portland considering adding fluoride to their water, the local editorial in the other paper in town again sounded the call for that to happen in Bend. If you look up fluoride info from Dr. Hardy Limebeck of Toronto, Canada you would find a dentist, biologist, and head of the school for preventative dentistry at the University of Toronto tell you the latest science. If you look up Cathy Justice, you would find out what happened to her horses and dogs after just a few years drinking the fluoridated water from the city of Pagosa Springs, Colorado a city that no longer flouridates [its] water.


Check the data from Europe where over 97 percent of the countries do not fluoridate the water, but still enjoy the same dental health as the U.S. Look up fluoride network online, check why more cities across the U.S have stopped adding fluoride (sic) to the water. Look on a tube of fluoridated toothpaste, it says if more then the amount needed to brush your teeth is swallowed, call a poison control center. Get informed; don't rely on old science or supposed experts.
