Even the American Medical Association once told the truth about fluoride:
“Fluorides are general protoplasmic poisons, probably because of their capacity to modify the metabolism of cells by changing the permeability of the cell membrane and by inhibiting certain enzyme systems.” - Journal of the American Medical Association, Sept 18, 1943, Editorial
Yet, somehow Big Industry has convinced the world, through brainwashing the American Dental Association and health authorities in every nation, as well as lying to politicians, that fluoride is safe:
“As a toxicologist involved in fluoride research for over ten years, I was stunned by the Calgary Regional Health Authority’s glib comments proclaiming water fluoridation safe. The ‘fifty years’ of studies about fluoride safety, do not exist. The “ongoing intensive research on fluorides and fluoridation’, does not exist, certainly none investigating safety.” - Dr. P. Mullenix, Ph.D.
“I am neither for or against fluoride,” Goebel-Canning said. “I will support what is best for the citizens of the county and respect the decision of the county commission.”
Many residents of Florida have been against mandatory water fluoridation, nonetheless a nearby county decided to fluoridate their water when Brooksville City Council members voted 4-1 last year to add the chemical to the water. There was vigorous debate leading up to that vote, but apparently it fell on deaf ears.
Three county commissioners of Hernando have decided not to fluoridate the water supplies, similar to Dallas, TX, which is considering ending 5 long decades of city water fluoridation.
