The individual heading the venture to remove fluoride from the water in 
California is a biochemist and knows what the chronic ingestion of 
fluoride does to the human body. Tell me what if anything does a dentist 
or their association know about the biological effects of fluoride on any 
part of the body other than teeth? This is a medical/scientific issue and 
it's been reduced to a political football because of the uninformed 
*opinions* of dental organizations. They have no expertise in 
toxicology, immunology, biochemistry, etc. Yet these are the same 
organizations which steadfastly claim that chronic exposure to fluoride 
in water, or the mercury which is contained in tooth fillings, is safe 
for the human body.

All truth passes through three stages. First it is ridiculed. Second,
it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident
