A drug, as defined by the FDA is an article
(other than food) intended to affect the structure or any function of the body of man or other animals.
Given this definition, fluoride is a drug; and we are being drugged by our cities and towns, who put fluoride in our water supply. Who gave them the right to say that every single person needs this drug? Who gave our town officials a medical license?
Fluoride in Water is Dangerous
The fluoride used to treat our water isn’t good quality, pure fluoride; instead, it’s chemical byproducts and includes other undesirables such as arsenic, lead, and chromium, which are all known carcinogens.
Even worse, the FDA hasn’t approved the use of fluoride in water. Fluoride is an unapproved drug because nobody knows how much of it is safe. If it isn’t known how much is safe, why is it being added to our children’s water, toothpaste, mouthwash then again every six months at the dentist?
Fluoride was first declared as necessary for preventing tooth decay 50 years ago. But do scientific studies from that time really meet scientific standards? After all, 50 years ago, scientific studies proved that cigarettes don’t cause lung cancer, something we all know to be false. Also, as a result of everyone wanting to protect their teeth from decay, fluoride is added to everything! No new, recent studies have been conducted by the FDA to test the effectiveness of fluoride or any possible side effects. Yet it’s put in our water supply.
Other countries (who seem to be smarter than the US as far as chemicals and food additives) have done research that we’ve neglected to do. Studies in China, for example, have shown that children exposed to Fluoride in their drinking water had a lower IQ than those who weren’t.
The addition of fluoride in our drinking water simply isn’t necessary. Our children are already overexposed to an abundance of fluoride in the foods they eat, the fluids they drink, and the products they use to clean their teeth.
When is the government going to realize that they need to step up and PROTECT its citizens, not ignore all the unhealthy food additives and chemicals that they’re exposing us and our children to?
