I respectfully request the City of Tacoma cease poisoning the water supply of its citizens with Fluoride.

The savings will be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. This is especially important since the information about the disasterous effects of Floride is now known. Many nations in Europe ban the use of Fluoride due to its hazards to public health. Fluoride is a known poison. In humans as little as one-tenth of an ounce will cause death. The adverse effects are well documented in The Physician’s Desk Reference.

The FDA has not approved fluoride for internal use. A 1990′s study found that fluoridation does not reduce decay in permanent teeth of children. better nutrition, and hygiene of children does. We are putting into our drinking water the waste product of the aluminum industries. It is high time we removed this dreadful poison from the water.
