Editor:

Wondering when Santa Monica will allow pure H2O to flow out of our faucets and cease adding the difficult to remove toxic substance called fluoride.

If fluoride works at all to prevent cavities, it does so when applied topically.

If fluoride is for children’s teeth, why force it into adults as well?

Only Santa Monicans who are aware of these issues and can afford expensive water-filtration systems, can save themselves from a lot, but not all of the fluoride added to the water.

Please City Council members, do the research (unbiased) and stop pouring taxpayers’ dollars down the drain.

    Santa Monica City Council voted on it years ago…it had nothing to do with the state. Fluoride is industrial waste and a known carcinogen. Shame on Santa Monica for force medicating their population with this garbage….
