Guest Post: Fluoride in our water: it’s not just about our teeth (Part 2)

Listen to this post

Special to the Herald Times

RANGELY I In April, Rangely voters will vote on fluoridation of our drinking water to continue or to stop it.

Our message is simple from proved sources, fluoride prevents tooth decay when applied topically; fluoride is toxic to our physical health when ingested. It’s about awareness to facts/truth/proved studies, “drinking” fluoride does not reduce tooth decay, and it is toxic and causes physical disease. Our information is from Fluoride Alert, Wikipedia and other sources as provided. Educate yourselves on truth and vote NO for fluoride in our drinking water!


Is the fluoride pure? Fluoridation chemicals are not pharmaceutical grade quality, they are unpurified industrial by-products, and are known to contain elevated levels of contaminants, i.e. arsenic, lead, etc., these contaminants can be added into your drinking water.  *The term “fluoride” is a cover-up name for many of the toxic chemicals that make up fluoride, including lead, arsenic, aluminum, cadmium, fluorosilicic acid and even radioactive materials. The pure form of sodium fluoride is so toxic that by just consuming a small volume of it could kill you.…/natural-fluoride-versus-synthetic-fluoride-is-there-a-difference

What contains fluoride? Fluoride is now in toothpaste, mouthwash, beverages, processed foods, baby formulas, etc.; due to the many forms of ingestion besides drinking water our intake levels can be at toxic levels and continue to climb, which can be causing many health problems that the docs can’t figure out.     

Bottom Line:  It’s not safe to fluoridate drinking water — vote no.

We encourage you to do your own research — ask questions in your favorite browser: Is fluoride toxic? How do I avoid fluoride in beverages and food? How do I reduce fluoride exposure? Several sources speak to fluoride being toxic as a poison to our bodies;, Fluoride Action Network, Mercola — Take Charge of Your Health, Fluoride Toxicity from Wikipedia, Global Healing Center. The book, “The Fluoride Deception” by Christopher Bryson is interesting reading. Educate yourselves for health!

Read Part 1 


  1. None of the alleged arguments or studies provided by “Forced-fluoridation Freedom Fighters” prove drinking optimally fluoridated water has any harmful. The only studies provided by fluoridation opponents as alleged evidence all have one, usually more, of the following characteristics:
    1) The study referenced had nothing to do with drinking optimally fluoridated water (OFW);
    2) The study examined exposure to fluoride ions at far higher levels than found in OFW;
    3) Actual study conclusions were deliberately distorted, misused &/or misstated to fit anti-F propaganda;
    4) The study conclusions only suggested a possible weak correlation (or association), not a causal relationship;
    5) The study didn’t consider or adjust for numerous other factors potentially associated with the alleged risk, and it proved nothing;
    6) The study was unrepeatable;
    7) The study was demonstrably flawed and had significant limitations
    8) The claim was a complete fabrication.
