This is How Science Happens – No Joke

I wish this was an April Fools joke… 60 years of debate on water fluoridation from conspiracy theory to scientific proof.

…makes you wonder what other conspiracy theories we unscientifically deride and dismiss to our ultimate detriment, doesn’t it?

Whatever happened to the precautionary principle?

Prove its safety and benefit before putting it into the water, please. Thank you.

  1. Wow-it is scary. Makes you feel like you’re a variable in a science experiment and the outcome is not always to your benefit. I remember growing up hearing about the value of fluoridation in our water, and ended up with erosion in the enamel of my teeth! That would have been in the 1950’s.
