Pinellas dentists work to get fluoride back in water supply: Will the Sheep Let Them?
Bob Tuskin- “After years and years of dentistry pushing this poison, it becomes tougher and tougher for them to concede. But as many of my listeners/readers know, the only thing I’m interested in is truth. The truth about fluoride is clear; it calcifies the pineal gland, causes cancer, lowers IQ, and so many other problems come from this waste bi-product. I applaud the folks in Pinellas county for the work you have done and have no fear because no matter how much propaganda comes from the various fluoride special interest gruops, you fine activist have the TRUTH on your side!”

A pair of Pinellas dental associations are working together to get fluoride put back in the water supply, and they’re exploring a range of options to that end – including a countywide referendum on the November ballot.
Earlier this year, the Pinellas County Commission voted narrowly to take fluoride out of the water. Some observers said it was the result of effective work by those associated with the tea party, some of whose members equate fluoride with government intrusion into people’s lives.
The fluoride is expected to be out of the water supply starting Jan. 1.
Dentists were outraged. They say the scientific evidence in support of fluoride is more than substantial, and that the chemical is especially crucial for the dental health of young children, who might not have access to routine quality dental care.
“It was just amazing to see,” dentist Ed Hopwood said of the commission vote. “We felt like we didn’t need to be there because the evidence was so overwhelming…We were quite frustrated.”
Hopwood is now the fluoridation committee chairperson of the Upper Pinellas County Dental Association, which is working with the Pinellas County Dental Association to get the fluoride put back in.
