I’m sure liberal Portland drinks bottled spring water.
this is probably mainly a left thing there...but it traditionally been a right thing too.
I do not want additives to my water...cept trace chlorine to kill any bacteria.....
They then analyzed possible associations with IQ measures in more than 8,000 children of school age;all but one study suggested that high fluoride content in water may negatively affect cognitive development.
The average loss in IQ was reported as a standardized weighted mean difference of 0.45,which would be approximately equivalent to seven IQ points for commonly used IQ scores with a standard deviation of 15.*
People will call you crazy for suggesting that there are people out there that would like nothing more than to kill as many Americans as possible any way possible. The thing is though, such people not only walk amongst us, they work in fields that give them access to things like our food, medicine, and water supply. Imagine if Major/Doctor Hassan had been in charge of water purification instead of an Army psychiatrist? I have an old friend who works in water purification for a large city. Security there is no freaking joke. Hassan demonstrates beyond any doubt that our enemy holds high positions within our infrastructure. what did he say when he started shooting? Allahu Akbar. And what did the sheep say when the shepherd led them to the slaughter house? Nothing.
We drink and cook with water directly from our Berkey. I’ve toyed with the idea of getting the fluoride filter as well, and I think I’ll order one when we replace the black filters.
Fluoridated water is just one more welfare benefit. We won’t be allowed to stop paying for it since it would hurt the poor and minorities, who never take their kids to the dentist.
Unfortunately not enough of us have yelled loud enough in our cities and towns to get it removed. It’s most definitely NOT good for you and should ALL be removed from drinking water all over the country but hey Big Pharma’s gotta make a living off of sick folks ya know?
Fluoridation should not be a blanket “yes or no” thing, for several reasons.
1) Many places already have plenty of fluoride in the water, so adding more is effectively overdosing people with it.
2) Fluoride, along with chlorine and bromide, are increasingly common in our diets and water, and tend to block the bodies ability to absorb iodine.
3) Fluoride is best applied directly to the teeth in toothpaste, not swallowed, and it is now ubiquitous in toothpastes. In the rest of the body it is unimportant at best, and can even be somewhat toxic.
I haven’t drunk unfiltered tap water since I was a kid. The chi water tasted like algae for years.
I don’t know how to feel about fluoride in water, I’m not sure it has much effect, positive or negative.
