In response to the letter "Don't let Q-C communities discontinue using fluoride":

As a Quad-Citian, a pediatric nurse for over 30 years and an upper cervical doctor of over 10, I can tell you standards of care have changed many times. A few decades ago, an ice pack, observation and an overnight hospital stay was the standard treatment for a head injury; now we have scans and MRIs to tell us more.

In the 1950s and the 1960s, it was standard to begin adding fluoride to our water supplies. It continues to this day, but as more and more communities become aware that the standard is changing, water fluoridation ceases. Recent research indicates ingesting fluoride not only has no effect on the number of cavities, but actually is toxic to the body and promotes white spots and streaks in teeth. This is called fluorosis.

There is overwhelming research and evidence indicating that now is the time to reassess our standard regarding the fluoridation process. Health organizations haven't yet caught up with recent research, therefore I encourage Quad-Citians to read it for yourselves.

Visit fluoridealert.org. Check out Fluoride Free Quad-Cities facebook page to learn more. Read the research done by HARVARD that indicates a lowering of IQ by ingesting fluoride. (Environmental Health Perspectives, July 20th, 2012). Investigate and explore the following link: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/08/07/effects-of-fluoride-to-children.aspx Read Dr. Paul Connetts book, "The Case Against Fluoride." Or watch the DVD, "Professional Perspectives on Fluoride," and remember with new research and information, standards of care change.
