Attend flouride meeting

Letter to the editor

Posted: Wednesday, July 28, 2004

Hail freedom!

Hooray, we've retained the freedom to express ourselves in the Fourth of July Parade! Freedom rings!

How about the freedom to drink tap water free of forced medication 365 days a year?

Remember? You are still drinking fluoride. This FDA-unapproved medication is forced to your taps daily.

This is a violation of your basic human rights and several treaties for forced medication and medical treatment without informed consent.

Scientific research demonstrates that drinking water with added fluoride is unnecessary for healthy teeth. Research also demonstrates water fluoride is toxic to teeth, brain, bone, thyroid and is positively correlated to many types of cancer. See www.fluoridealert.org/health.htm, http://www.fluoridealert.org/health.htm, and http://www.fluoridealert.org/f-teeth.htm.

Will you let a minority force you to take a medication they believe it to be good for children's teeth?

If you would like your water free of added medication, come to the city Assembly chambers from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., Wednesday, July 28, and lend your public testimony to the Fluoridation Study Commission.

If you don't speak up for your freedom, who will?

Dr. Patrick Neary
