One thought on “EVER-PREDICTABLE CITY COUNCIL CONTINUES MARCHING TO CDC’S TUNE”

  1. Getting Laura Presley on the commission should be near the top of the goals. Then tough questions may be asked of any supporter like the two dentists who spoke. They can be asked for specifics or if they consider the double damage for blacks and hispanics of any concern. They can be asked about delayed eruption being caused by fluoride overexposure and dental fluorosis severity being tied to fluoride toxicity and levels in bone.
    She can also ask who actually treats the poor kids on medicaid and about cosmetic repairs being a growing income source for dentists. Damage caused often by skyrocketing dental fluorosis. A major conflict of interest. Ask a dentist if they are qualified to diagnosis outside the oral cavity so how can they claim children do not get too much fluoride from all the many sources like food, drinks medications, pesiticides ,dental products and transdermal from baths showers and mouth lining. The 2006 NRC by a 12-0 vote found the 4ppm MCLG non protective- Every single expert said it is not safe but no real action was taken yet but for the slight decrease to .7ppm as the advised level.
    Laura Pressley can insure both sides have their feet to the fire. All your experts can then have further questions asked, not just 3 minutes and then shut up and sit down.
    I also think things must be made part of the public record and often email or give hard copy of each new study or comments for the record. Ignorance is not a defense- especially when you had the public record data proof.
