Fluoride exists naturally in water. Several of the posters seem to be unaware of this. They also ignore the fact that not a single major medical/health organization opposes community water fluoridation. The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Dental Association, the Mayor Clinic, the Institute of Medicine and a host of other highly respected organizations that have examined this issue ALL support water fluoridation. That's because they focus on what the science says -- and not on the wild, unsubstantiated claims made by a handful of websites.
Look closely at the websites that attack fluoridated water. Many of them also attack vaccines, claim 9/11 was an "inside job," etc. The anti-fluoride conspiracy crowd is so paranoid and fearful that they'll attack a proven health practice that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has called one of the "great public health achievements of the 20th century."Jul 3, 2012
