I am not an alarmist and I DO believe that the City of Beaumont does a good job in making sure that when the Water Department adds FLUORIDE into our drinking water, it makes certain that the levels added do not exceed the recommended dosage prescribed by TCEQ and other regulatory authorities. However, given the choice, I would rather FLUORIDE not be added to the water I am drinking that is provided by the City of Beaumont. Why?
For starters, you can Google information produced by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, which outlines the potential for serious and sometimes fatal consequences from the ingestion of too much fluoride. The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology is a global network of dentists, health professionals, and scientists who research the bio-compatibility of dental products, including the risks of mercury fillings and fluoride. It is a proven fact that FLUORIDE is hazardous and can cause toxicity. I acknowledge that there is a huge debate that rages on the subject between the dentists affiliated with the American Dental Association and those affiliated with IAOMT. I am not going to wade into that debate because it is extremely controversial and you can find experts and opinions on both sides of the issue.
