The U.S. Public Health Service endorsed water fluoridation in 1950 during the wild west days of the nuclear bomb industry's reckless releases of fluoride compounds into US communities. At the time there was little research into the safety of fluoridating Public water supplies, but the new standard of allowed exposure protected industry from law suites and allowed nuclear bomb making to proceed. Now, six decades later and after most countries have rejected fluoridating Public drinking water more than 70 percent of Americans, as well as 200 million people worldwide, are drinking fluoridated water. The Center for Disease Control and the American Dental Association continue to promote fluoridation--and even mandatory state-wide water fluoridation--despite increasing evidence that it is not only unnecessary, but potentially hazardous to human health and intelligence.
