And I thought all the fluoride wackos lived in California!

What's next? Treating illnesses with homeopathic preparations?

What a stupid move! Class action law suit anyone for endangering dental health?

The science is on your side!

Hmmm. The Tea party was invovled? This was more about less government than the beneficial effects fluoride has on our teeth. Now the poor, who drink tap water and can't afford the dentist will have even more dental problems. Well done.

Purposely putting chemicals into drinking water because it is "good for us" is definitely not a government function. If a family wants fluoride for their children, they can purchase fluoride containing toothpaste.

A quote from a Pinellas Patriot:

"Who in their right mind wants any toxic substance put into their body," the Palm Harbor man said. "This is all part of an agenda that's being pushed forth by the so-called globalists in our government and the world government to keep the people stupid so they don't realize what's going on."
"They're tired of being medicated and controlled," he said. "This is the US of A, not the Soviet Socialist Republic."

Another poster gave me a good idea with the tinfoil hats. I'm going to do a brisk business selling them at the upcoming convention.

All the elderly people that I know in The Netherlands dealt with fluoride in the water for most of their life and they had good teeth. Both my parents have their own teeth and so did my grand mother until she passed away at the age of 91! My grand father had his own teeth when he passed away at the age of 80 and both my in laws had all their own teeth when they died in their late 70's.

So tell me where is the proof that it is unhealthy?

We were told to buy fluoride pills for the kids after it was removed from the water so basically the pharmaceutical industry made more money and I haven't seen one bit of proof that it was unhealthy!

Just another theory by some scientist who probably are on the pay list of a pharma ...comp. !

Just a bunch of crap!

Btw the teeth I mentioned for my family members and btw all their friends was a full mouth of teeth not just 2 or 3 teeth. The main issue is to brush your tetth very well a couple of times a day and visit a dentist on a regular base and don't eat too many sweets or brush adirectly after drinking certain stuff like Orange Jus.

It's really hard to believe that some people consider that a normal and logical thought process.

It's depressing to read this kind of comment. There are globalists, they are powerful, they do have an agenda, and I oppose them. However, fluoride is simply not part of that agenda. It's either good public health policy or a flukish relic of the Cold War which is mildly hurting us. That's it.

People may be coming to many conclusions as to why Pinellas County is dropping its Fluoridation program,i'd think it was just a cost cutting measure for the county..
