In reference to [“Protection or Poison? Food Policy Council Urges Asheville to Stop Fluoridating Water,” Sept. 9, Xpress], this article gives a good case for the U.S. to stop putting fluoride in drinking water.
Mayor [Esther] Manheimer said that because the fluoride was put in by a referendum, a referendum is needed to take it out, but a referendum will not work because the same big dirty money that put it in will come in in droves to prevent it from discontinuing.
Since it can be shown that fluoride is ineffective and harmful to our health, a case can be made to discontinue putting it in. There is considerable evidence that it is not only harmful to our health, but ineffectual.
