Coal Burning and Fluoride Problems

The AFP reports that coal burning and too much fluoride is having devastating effects on rural Chinese. Benjamin Morgan has more:
In many developed countries, fluoride, which is often naturally occurring in water and also coal, is added to toothpaste and drinking water.

Since the 1960s many medical experts have believed that small amounts of fluoride helps prevent tooth decay and strengthen bones.

However, the claimed benefits have increasingly drawn fire from medical experts who say that there are no tangible health advantages to the human body.

Several European countries over the last five years have stopped public water fluoridation programmes amid questions whether the mineral does more harm than good.

How sad! Does Dr. Fuhrman have an opinion on fluoride prescriptions for kids?

According to Christopher Bryson, in his book The Fluoride Deception, the favored substance for fluoridating water now is uranium hexafluoride, which is produced in great quantities in nuclear weapons production. An article in the latest issue of Acres U.S.A. mentions that uranium hexafluoride is the same as depleted uranium. So that's what is coming out of your faucet.
