Tax Fluoridation

Place a tax on fluoridated water sufficiently high as to pay for all medical costs for the diseases it causes, such as hypothyroid disease, Alzheimer's disease, fluorosis, and weakened bones.

Why is this important?

Fluoride is a vicious poison that is alleged to prevent tooth decay, but which only works topically (see ). I now must take thyroid pills for the rest of my life because of it, and my circadian rhythm disruption is pobably because of it. Dental costs are higher in fluoridated areas pobably because of the high cost of correcting fluoridosis.
