Some law-makers are trying to change that however, we cannot allow it!!
Then that explains it! All the fluoride previously applied to the towns and villages water supply is the Root Cause of the dummies living on the island! Now, the towns and villages can no longer blame the teachers for doing a poor job. Dummy living in your town - blame flouride! That's right, we can't allow it - we need the IQ level of Long Islander's to rise, not fall any lower than they already have!

WTF? How fall this island has fallen as to have this nonsense about toxicity,mottled teeth (yeah, if you drink the flouride rinse 4x a day instead of the 1x as it says on the bottle), etc. being tossed about as if it were FACT instead of conjecture.
Dummies, indeed.

Flouride also blocks iodine absorbtion which hurts the thyroid, as well as other areas of the body.

Yeah, my teeth are terrible - my sibs are fine. They spent their first years in Levittown with flouridated water and I spent my childhood in Huntington - no flouride.

My kids are getting flouridated water, flouride toothpaste, and flouride treatment 2x a year. And their molars are sealed.

Many cavities and root canals later, I'll take my chances with my kids.

I never gave the flouride drops though.

Never knew there were so many dentists, doctors and scientists on this board. Guess they all got their degrees from the Internet and studied under the renowned Doctor Google.

The internet is a big place and with a little internet research we can all find articulate arguments made by medical professionals FOR and AGAINST the use of fluoride. The information I have read on the subject has caused me to avoid it - that's MY decision - it's also the decision of the SCWA:
