Okay - I usually don't get political, but this is important. We NEED to fight the attempted forced fluoridation happening in Portland. You can do something very simple to help stop this. Take 1 minute to sign this petition, and then pass the link on to friends and family to spread the awareness
Did you know...the Oregon government (a panel of only 5 people) are trying to push fluoridation without allowing the people to vote on it? This is usurping your democratic rights. Read more here.
Here's a little infographic of the possible dangers of fluoride:
It especially targets susceptible populations such as babies, pregnant women, nutritionally deficient people, and those already struggling with health issues (such as those with diabetes and/or kidney disease). The evidence is uncertain at best, despite popular arguments. Compulsory mass medication is dangerous, and banned in forward-thinking countries such as Sweden, Germany, Japan, and many more. See list in this link.
"Despite dental pressure, 99% of western continental Europe has rejected, banned, or stopped fluoridation due to environmental, health, legal, or ethical concerns.
Only about 5% of the world population is fluoridated and more than 50% of these people live in North America. The Danish Minister of Environment recommended against fluoridation in 1977 because "no adequate studies had been carried out on its long-term effects on human organ systems other than teeth and because not enough studies had been done on the effects of fluoride discharges on freshwater ecosystems."
If you want to prevent cavities, improve your health through diet and lifestyle, and by with the preventative measures of brushing and flossing.
I'm happy to help you with this too!
