Having lived a good portion of my life in the US, I am very aware of the ongoing and the vast array of conversations about water. There are issues with drought, flooding, contamination, water rights and even stealing, but the conversation that many people neglect to have is the one about fluoridation. While I find myself disturbed by the fact that most people turn a blind eye to this use of fluorides in our public water systems, I am equally disturbed that municipalities do it at all.
Too often we blindly trust that our government has our best interest at the base of their decisions. Not to paint with too wide of a brush, but we all know only too well that that is not always the case. I don’t mean to sound overly cynical, but it often appears that their true interest lies in lead generation and alliances which promote their own self interests.
