WILL YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE RECEIVING A LITTLE LESS POISON THAN USUAL?
|| By FITSNEWS || For the first time in more than a half century the federal government is scaling back its recommended dosage of fluoride in public water supplies – something it should have done years ago given the abundant evidence attesting to the toxicity of the chemical.
According to new guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), municipal water supplies should be fluoridated at 0.7 milligrams per liter as opposed to 1.2 milligrams per liter. Why the reduction? Because people are getting too much fluoride – resulting in, well, fluoride poisoning.
“Studies have shown fluoride increases cancer risk, reduces IQs in children, causes arthritis symptoms and is an endocrine disrupter,” conservative author Bob Livingston wrote for his Personal Liberty website.
Livingston is absolutely correct on each of those points … in fact the government knew fluoridation was bad decades before it started encouraging it in the early 1960s, ostensibly to prevent tooth decay.
In South Carolina, a whopping 93.8 percent of those served by community water systems are receiving fluoridated water, according to 2012 data. That’s the ninth-highest percentage in the nation – well above the national average of 74.6 percent.
There is currently no state law governing water fluoridation. It is exclusively up to local governments to determine how much of the chemical to put into the water supply. In other words they don’t have to follow the new federal guidelines … they can keep right on poisoning you and your kids (without your consent) at whatever level they wish.
