Please be aware of the dangers of fluoride consumption and exposure.

The notion that fluoride is beneficial is an antiquated one.
Fluoride is a pollutant - a by-product of copper, iron and aluminum manufacturing. The problem of how to legally dispose of fluoride was solved in the 1930's when a study (funded by one of the country's largest aluminum companies!) concluded that fluoride prevented tooth decay.

The FDA now requires that all fluoride toothpaste sold in the U.S. carry a poison warning that instructs users to contact the poison control center if they swallow more than used for brushing their teeth.

It's in the public water supply. See this link and click on different areas of Westmoreland County for information on the fluoride levels in those jurisdictions:

"The standard since 1962 has been a range of 0.7 to 1.2 milligrams per liter"

1.57 mg/L is what is listed for the town

The standard is now 0.7 with a recommended top of 2.0. It's been revised :) Want to read about it?

I'm getting a great pix in my head here. I am seeing ugly teethed people walking around twitching from the early adoptions of cell phones when they were pre-teens :) I SHOULD meet the light at the end of the tunnel first :)

Really, wtcsret? Ugly teeth? Seriously?

Health Ministry Finds that Fluoridation Does Not Reduce Tooth Decay
http://worldental.org/dental-news/health-mini...

Major dental researchers also concede that fluoride is ineffective at preventing pit and fissure tooth decay (JADA 1984; Gray 1987; White 1993; Pinkham 1999)

The worst tooth decay in the United States occurs in the poor neighborhoods of our largest cities, the vast majority of which have been fluoridated for decades.

Not to mention that water fluoridation violates the individual’s right to informed consent to medication.

All you have to do now is convince the CB taxpayers to pay the freight to REMOVE the NATURAL flouridation. I really wish you good luck with that one :) Have at it! I would recommend you buy your drinking water, That is a lot more likely solution for anyone who objects!

Really fluoride.. I think there more important things we could be worrying about... I for one am now worried about zombies as the cdc has http://www.cdc.gov/phpr/zombies.htm so..really I know it was meant to be informative but it reminders me of the State Farm commercial if it's online it must be true...I have been drinking the town water for years and at one point my dentist still had to get me to use fluoride (not in toothpaste) casue I wasn't getting enough... so before you go trying to freak out people do a lot more research from credible sources... For one if I used http://www.redorbit.com/news/health/111269357...
as a source in a research paper for college it would not be accepted as a creditable source... No real author to know if they are qualified to give information on the topic... Truthfully there's a lot of stuff that can hurt us not just what's in our water if your concerned about it get a filter or buy bottle water (i think it has fluoride in it as well though I'm not sure) but I did a quick search and found http://www.cdc.gov/fluoridation/fact_sheets/b...
so there are options available if you look for them... instead of trying to get it removed from the towns water...

Nearly all the fluoride dripped into municipal water supplies isn't naturally occurring fluoride at all. It's actually a combination of hexafluorosilicic acid and sodium silicofluoride.

These two chemicals are considered highly toxic by the EPA. They're actually classified as hazardous waste and when packaged for transportation, they must be labeled as poison and handled by workers wearing industrial safety gear.

Well your fluoride is natural so you would have to eliminate it rather then stop dripping. I am a product of the era and I still have all my teeth and am still "medium" sharp :) Look closely at your ADA/CDC pages for latest stance. It's a risk/reward kind of thing. I take rat poison to thin my blood (Now that is RISK) my reward is LESS chance of stroke :)

Anyone that has done an ounce of research would know that fluoridation is bad news. Yeah, you could look up what the CDC or ADA says about, but their opinion carries about as much weight as the American Beef Council telling you to eat more red meat!

The folks that speak out against fluoridation have nothing to gain in a financial sense (except for their health). The folks that speak in favor of it have financial incentives.

Think about it.
(from http://www.informationliberation.com/index.ph... )

Those who cannot afford fluoride filters for their tap water can (if they choose to) eliminate or reduce consumption of fluoride from other sources such as toothpaste, mouth rinse, bottled drinks and other processed foods made with fluoridated water, etc.

um I have done my research... in fact I needed more fluoride when I had braces and I have been drinking the town water since I was four (I'm not almost 30) I'm fine and healthy... I am even PRO fluoride (in safe amounts) and have no financial incentive to gain from it... but lets see while were on this health kick what else should everyone be worried about.
when you go outside you breath in pollution... lets see what else oh teflon is harmful but you may have some pans that are coated with it better toss those.. pull up the carpet they are most likely made with volatile organic compounds ( http://www.epa.gov/iaq/voc.html )... plastic food containers may contain BPA ( http://www.niehs.nih.gov/health/topics/agents... )... and last but not least if you have a humidifier and haven't cleaned it twice this week with bleach you may want to it contains bacteria.... pretty sure I could think of more....

Yes, there are health hazards all around us, but this thread is about Fluoride in the water supply in CB and Westmoreland.

If you choose to use fluoride, that's up to you. Just be alert to and aware of the side effects, which can include
Down Syndrome ( http://thyroid.about.com/cs/toxicchemicalsan/... )
Cancer
Genetic DNA Damage
Thyroid Disruption – affecting the complete endocrine system and leading to obesity
Neurological – diminished IQ and inability to focus, lethargy and weariness.
Alzheimer’s Disease
Melatonin Disruption, lowers immunity to cancer, accelerates aging, sleep disorders.
Pineal Gland, calcification, which clogs this gland located in the middle of the brain.
( http://www.wakingtimes.com/2012/08/28/a-fluor... )

Also, fluoride accumulates in the body over time, reaching toxic levels as a person ages.

Although the purpose of the NRC study and subsequent analyses is to advise EPA on the
adequacy of the fluoride drinking water standards, the evaluation of the available science and
exposure led HHS to propose to change recommended levels for community water fluoridation.
In 2011, HHS proposed that community water systems use a fluoridation level of 0.7 milligrams
per liter, which is the lower end of the current recommended range of 0.7 mg/L to 1.2 mg/L. The
new analyses may also be useful to states and communities that are assessing whether or not to
fluoridate their public water supplies.

Canadian provinces are making good progress in eradicating fluoride from their municipal water supplies. Here's hoping the USA follows suit!

Another one! Are you people for real?! FLUORIDE?! Why don't you put more effort into getting rid of the drugs being flushed either by the ill educated consumer or better yet the 50% of hospitals???? Are we not understanding that everything is already in our water supply?! The only real fix is ultra filters and UV! Don't listen to what the EPA and the GOV tells you! IT'S ALL LIES!! The bottled water you buy is JUST OUT OF A TAP! LOOK IT UP!
