Cities Begin To Question Water Flouridation


Natural News Writes:

"I think this pattern has been growing because there is better environmental health research that draws connections between low levels of chemical exposure and changes in our bodies," said Dr. Howard Hu of the University of Michigan. "As the research has become more sophisticated, it shows that environmental toxicants can do other things beyond just kill you: they can stunt your growth, change behavior and increase the risk of cardiovascular disease."

It can be something else to keep up with, but we have to be aware of the dangers so we can prepare ourselves and others by seeking and creating alternatives.
