I am not or have never been an “anti-fluoride “ activist. I have a medical background and many years ago I was familiarized, mostly against my own interest or desire, with the body of literature pertaining to fluoridation. The topic had not entered my mind for 15 years, until I saw recently where my water is going to be treated in opposition to a voter mandate. I decided that I would look into it, as I felt that it was a policy that is not being supported by sound science. I felt that it was not being supported by the usual disciplines of medicine, microbiology, pharmacology, etc.
