Fluoride debate simmers

Portland remains the largest city in the nation that does not add fluoride to its drinking water.

fluoridationists use words to deflect attention from the truth. For example Virginia implies fluoride is not a drug.

However, this is the definition of a drug from merriam webster:"according to the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (1) : a substance recognized in an official pharmacopoeia or formulary (2) : a substance intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease (3) : a substance other than food intended to affect the structure or function of the body

Fluoride IS a drug, period case closed! Fluoride is not required by the teeth or the body in any way. Consuming a fluoride-free diet does NOT cause tooth decay.

No human is, or ever was, fluoride deficient. The condition doesn't exist in nature. Read more
