Newburyport’s water department adds a Chinese fluoride waste product, the same one Amesbury citizens voted to take out of their water.
In March, The Lancet officially classified fluoride as a developmental neurotoxin, the same category as lead, arsenic and mercury.
Consider your teeth, your cavities, whether you have dental fluorosis. Consider thyroid dysfunction, diabetes, kidney disease, foggy minds and depression. Consider heart disease, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia and cancer, which are all systemic diseases that have increased steadily since water fluoridation was implemented nationwide in the 1950s. Fluorine, a halogen, is one of the most reactive substance on the planet, a toxic endocrine disrupter that bioaccumulates in the body, especially the teeth and bones.
We never knew this, hearing instead that fluoride was good for our teeth. But that was then and this is now!
Five decades have passed and the evidence and proof are overwhelming. Once we know, it is our joint responsibility to right the wrong. Let’s take fluoride out of Newburyport’s water.
