Fluoride: Drinking Ourselves to Death?
Fluoride is more toxic than lead and only slightly less toxic than arsenic. Yet it is routinely added to the drinking water of five million people in Britain and more than two and a half million people in Ireland. They are given no choice. If someone were to tell you that you were being subjected to a known poison, without your consent, that the substance could lead to an increased risk of cancer and osteoporosis, and that it was used as a commercial rat poison, you would probably think they were mad. And if they averred that this medication was being administered today with the full knowledge and co-operation of government and the medical profession, you would be sure they were mad. Yet this is happening to millions of people in Britain, Ireland and other countries today, for that poison is fluoride.
