Letter: Let’s Play ‘What Is It?’

Now that the dog days of summer are here, here is a fun little quiz that can get us all to have an interesting dinner conversation. Let’s dive right in.

“What is it?”

It is a product the EPA’s National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory has classified as a “chemical having substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity.”

It is a product the FDA has never approved as safe and effective.

It is a product that is a toxic industrial waste product, which is also contaminated with lead, arsenic, radionucleotides, aluminum and other industrial contaminants.

Ready to guess what it is?

Well, the answer may be a little bit hard to swallow, but here it is:


Yes, lovable, cute lil’ fluoride which, we are told, is necessary for maintaining healthy teeth in our children and grandchildren, and it has just been added back into our water in Wellington.

Isn’t summer fun?
