Lunacy

Almost 70 years after the first cities started fluoridating their water supplies, more than 90 percent of Americans still get cavities.

If that weren’t enough to ban fluoride, there’s this: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently added fluoride to its list of developmental neurotoxins—chemicals that interfere with normal brain development in utero and in children (though the agency claims the levels found in drinking water are “safe”).

In 2006, the National Research Council of the National Academies (NRC) determined that fluoride is an endocrine disruptor that damages the thyroid.

And still . . . cities are fluoridating water. Like the video’s narrator says: lunacy.
