Poll Question: Fluoridated Water

Poll Question:  Fluoridated Water

Many years ago, fluoride was a part of Sheridan's water system, but then was removed. Now, there are some in town who would like to have fluoride put back into the water.

What is fluoride? Sodium Fluoride is a compound of fluorine that is a member of the Periodic Table of the Elements or Atomic Number 9. Fluoride is a naturally occurring element found in rocks, soil, fresh water and salt water. However the variety of types and sources of fluoride from pharmaceutical to industrial grade and how these substances are used, can bring about confusion on the issue of fluoridated water.

The issue prompted this week's Bank of Sheridan / sheridanmedia.com poll question: Do you support putting Fluoride into Sheridan's drinking water?

Let us know what you think. Cast your vote here: http://www.sheridanmedia.com/pol... and feel free to leave appropriate comments. Then be sure to tune in to the Jackson Electric Open Line this Friday at 9:10 on NewsTalk 930 KROE to hear the results.

Fluoridated Water

Just logged in, saw article & comments on flouridated water.

My father was a practicing dentist in Sheridan for many years and was among those who led the efforts to implent (or continue) flouridation in the Sheridan water supply. I still have distinct memories, as a child, of him being soundly criticized by others who opposed flouridation.

There is no subsitute for taking care of yourself thru, among other things, consistent oral hygene and annual or bi-annual visits to your dentist. At the time, flouridation was (and I believe; remains) among the best and easiest preventive treatment option to minimize cavities / tooth decay.

Name ONE sound toxicolorical study

"Sorry Doc, but fluoridated water is an extremely good idea with many studies and much science to back it up."

Baloney! Never mind the "many studies" pitch, PLEASE simply cite ONE peer-reviewed toxicological study--if one exists-- that demonstrates safety and effectiveness for sodium fluoride or any of the other HAZMAT-derived fluoridation agents "approved" for usage in our public water supplies.

Wary.

'fluoridation' - Economically ABSURD!, NOT Cost Effective!

In regards to prior Comments:
Regular Physicians not licensed to practice Dentistry? And expert Dentists not licensed to practice whole body medicine! … making comments and Claims unrelated to their respective ‘licensed practice’; such as, “It’s SAFE! It’s effective!”
‘Fluoridation’ is an economically absurd ‘medicant’ delivery system. Silicofluoride, illicitly used by government regulated Water Treatment Plants is an U.S.-EPA ‘regulated pollutant’ obtained from the ‘Hazardous Waste’ streams of phosphate ore processing plants. Illicitly, and unscrupulously Silicofluoride is being metered into our drinking/tap waters as a ’medicant’ unapproved by FDA, yet claimed by Dentists to be for ‘Better Oral Health’]. USA Pollution Laws are being violated! The Dentists need education to know the difference between pharmaceutical grade fluoride compounds vs. State(s) designated ‘Hazardous Waste’.
OK, here’s why ‘fluoridation is ‘cost ineffective’: URGENT! … Know that the AWWA [American Water Works Association] has reported in one of their ‘Water Conservation pamphlets’ that “Less than 1% of utilities treated water is ever consumed [e.g. swallowed] by human beings.” The rest goes to landscape watering, washing uses, and down drains.
So, think of this analogy to the AWWA statement…Would anyone purchase a bottle of 100 EXPENSIVE ‘medicant’ pills, take just one and throw the rest away into our habitats only to pollute our environments? Of course NOT!

Now, because there is a USA sourced shortage of Silicofluoride, chemical suppliers are IMPORTING ‘untested’ Silicofluoride from China for USA gov’t regulated Water Treatment Plants to meter TONS into our Drinking/Tap Waters.
“Swallowed fluoride is of insignificant benefit in preventing tooth decay!” Read this in a dental Journal science report ‘declaration’ in American Dental Association Journal, July 2000.

‘Fluoridation’ is the Worlds Most economically Wasteful, ‘dose uncontrolled’, illicit, illogical ‘medicant’ delivery system on the face of this Earth!

Education to prevent baby bottle tooth decay (bbtd) .. needed!
‘bbtd’ in toddlers is attributed to overuse and improper use of a baby bottle for feeding (e.g. leaving a baby bottle in baby’s mouth over-night, etc.)
Pediatric physicians, family doctors, school health nurses, head-start program directors, dental clinics need to educate & warn, soon to be parents, about ‘bbtd’ and prevention.
Data from the California Oral Health Needs Assessment ‘93-‘94 shows an equally high incidence of ‘bbtd’ in head start children living in both fluoridated and non- fluoridated regions.
Early tooth care education by Parents to Children is the main answer to preventing early childhood caries!
Parents should get updated Dental Care EDUCATION at:
• the Hospital during PreNatal Training Classes.
• at each appointment they might have with a Dentist.
• at annual PTA meeting headlining a special emphasis on Children’s Dental Care.
Water fluoridation does not reduce the incidence of bbtd!
NO! on ... fluoridation !

NEVER SWALLOW ANY FLUORIDE !

Latest Studies Show Fluoridated Water Is Bad For Health

People need to read the newest book on the subject--"The Case Against Fluoride: How Hazardous Waste Ended Up in Our Drinking Water and the Bad Science and Powerful Politics That Keep It There" by Drs. Connett, Beck, and Micklem. Fluoridated water is just a plain bad idea and there is very little good science to back it up, and plenty that show that it is largely harmful to your body.

Sorry Doc, but fluoridated

Sorry Doc, but fluoridated water is an extremely good idea with many studies and much science to back it up.

I found the website for your Institute for Resonance very entertaining. I see that your PhD is in sociology and you are not a medical doctor. The "research" your institute does is largely dedicated to studying crop circles. And let's not miss any of the links to buy your books, CDs, DVDs, calendar, and raw rice protein powder.

You are nothing more than a snake oil salesman.

What exactly is the science

What exactly is the science to back up your view and have you read any recent books on the subject? My background is in social statistics and I'm am not advocating you buy any of my books or other materials on my site (I haven't even included my URL here.) As a Ph.D. sociologist with university teaching experience, I can tell you categorically that the fluoride research you are basing your opinions on is flawed, in many ways. That's why I'm recommending that you read "The Case Against Fluoride" or Chris Bryson's excellent "The Fluoride Deception." Again, can you name a single recent study that supports your position? Yes or no? If so, what is it?
