Some of us don’t want our water fluoridated

Don’t condemn all people who purchase bottled water, since the fluoride compound that is added to Erie County drinking water can cause adverse effects to our health, such as painful arthritis symptoms. Therefore, it’s necessary to buy plain, clean water without the additional fluoride. Our other alternatives are to install an expensive filtration system (Brita filters do not remove fluoride) or move to one of the many communities that have rejected fluoridation.

How did hydrofluosilicic acid, a byproduct of the fertilizer industry, become the fluoride of choice for our water supply? View on YouTube, “The Fluoride Deception: An Interview with Christopher Bryson,” an award-winning journalist, for the explanation.

Actually, clean water and topically applied fluoridated toothpastes are really all we need for healthy teeth. Brush and rinse, but never swallow, as the label warns.
