Wast of time and money, IMO. Most people who know better don't drink the water here (no matter how safe the town says it now is). You can buy it flouridated just like you're buying it now.

How bout this: an alternative safe water source for the lack of water in the town already. THEN you can flouridate it. Baby steps.
Duh

Since you know better, why do you live in a town that knowingly lies to you? Are you really sure "you KNOW BETTER"? Sounds like you don't know better at all...

Because I've lived here too long and have too much invested in it at this time.

Please enlighten me then and tell me what you know about it. Clearly, I must learn. Find me that town to move to that doesn't lie. Tell me how flouridating the water will be a good thing.

Change my mind.

..and did you really need to quote me when I was the only person in the thread to respond too?
Duh

You have just answered your own question. What "investments" have you so rooted in Ashland. The devil you know?

Hell, I was taking showers 25 years ago in Ashland and knew that it was nasty dirty green water and wondered what color it would leave my hair. Yes, I lived there, AND I LEFT THERE.

But, I see in one message you tell someone to get off crack, and then in this message, you sound like you're on it yourself. Errrr, maybe it's the water.......
Lemme give you more

Critics say fluoridation carries health risks ranging from cancer to damage to the enamel of developing teeth and has questionable benefits.
ASHLAND NEEDS MORE CANCER RIDDEN RESIDENTS IN THEIR TOWN? WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED TO LEARN??????
Why do I quote you? One word, never mind. With my mother in mind, I'll be kind.

My investment in the town goes beyond your hair. I've lived here all my life, and have children here. Roots are formed beyond your bleached hair turning green. We knew not then what we are experiencing now. Those who have a home know it isn't that easy to pick up and sell.
Duh, lay off the bleach.

You sir, are either a jackass, or having been drinking Ashland's water for too many decades.

If you are fine with what the town of Ashland has "served you with", then you have (if not then, then certainly NOW), have certain disregard with what Ashland serves your children, and most likely grandchildren, then stay off topic boards like these. Take your medicine, suffer your consequences, i.e. your health, the health of you family, your children, and your grandchildren, and take your pride and your f'ing investment to an early grave.

Nothing is easy in life. Get over it.

Get off the bleach? Get off the toxins! After all, I never heard of someone getting cancer from bleaching their hair (not that I do, nor would ever be vain enough to do so), but apparently, the cancer ratio in your town, and the risks that you don't mind facing with fluoridation, you might as well dig your own grave.

BUT, HEY, AT LEAST YOU'LL DIE A TRUE ASHLAND RESIDENT.

Why don't you ask yourself one question, jackass?

How many town officials actually live in Ashland?

They are serving up their residents on a silver platter. You are just too toxic to realize that.

Enjoy your rest, six feet under.

Flouridating the water supply is, to me, an idea past its prime. If it is primarily children who will benefit, why flouridate your entire population? In the drinking supply, some people drink way more water than others and while I am not crying overdose, clearly they will get more than needed. I don't see why a once a year topical application isn't done in the schools, with the parent's permission. Or they can administer flouride drops to a GLASS a water for the children to drink at home if they want it. Perhaps some parents DO NOT want their kids getting it at all. Too many issues.

I have a cousin who for years spoke against flouride. He was a noted allergist. And one I respected highly for he treated many with allergies who were poor and could not afford treatment for their allergies. Given that I am sure if he felt these folks would benefit from flouride, he would have been supporting it and distributing it, but no. He fought against it. fOR OUR WELFARE.
Huh

Sounds like a wise man.
