It appears that some of the Village News readers are well informed on the dangers of drinking and bathing in fluoridated water. As I noted in a previous letter to the editor, FPUD has allowed the Metropolitan Water District to add fluoride to the water that is delivered to Fallbrook. Yes, Fallbrook residents are drinking fluoridated water and no one asked the residents of our community if they wanted fluoride (medicine) added to their drinking water.
As I said before, the voters in the city of Davis, California were asked to vote on the issue of fluoride. The voters decided not to have fluoride in their water; wise choice.
Some people responded to my first missive to the Village News, saying I was a “John Bircher” or conspiracy nut-job. That’s wrong, folks. My concern is fluoride is not really a medicine at all. It’s a by-product (waste) from the manufacturing of aluminum, fertilizers, etc.
Why wouldn’t the good people of Fallbrook at least be asked before something is added to their drinking water? What’s next? A community should be consulted before adding a controversial additive to their diet.
I, for one, believe that fluoride is not good for long-term health. As for fighting cavities, no conclusive proof has been made to that argument.
All I’m saying is that the people of Fallbrook do not need to be treated like morons and have an ingredient added to their water without their consent.
