Looks like the citizens of Yorktown have benefited by taking the fluoride feed system off line. Many countries in Europe have stopped putting fluoride in their drinking water. This includes: Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Scotland, Iceland and Italy. It has been found to be a carcinogen and affects the brain (source: fluoridealert.org/issues/health/brain). I have tried on two occasions to warn the town council of the danger of fluoridation but to no avail. If you want to fluoridate your teeth, then do so.
I remember back in the day going to the dentist for fluoride treatments. The dentist would swab the fluoride on the teeth and tell me NOT to swallow. I repeat, not swallow. Even back then they knew something about the danger of swallowing the stuff.
Two good things come from this system failure. One, we are saving taxpayer money and number two, we are not poisoning ourselves. Adults do not need fluoride. By the way, it is very difficult to filter out. Most water filters, including some of the best, can’t.
Is fluoride toxic?
Fluoride is a highly toxic substance. In terms of acute toxicity (i.e., the dose that can cause immediate toxic consequences), fluoride is more toxic than lead, but slightly less toxic than arsenic. This is why fluoride has long been used in rodenticides and pesticides to kill pests like rats and insects.
Ask yourself this question: Do we really need it in our drinking water?
