challenge the prevailing fluoride dogma of the day — and these are lies
that, fortunately, many people are learning to simply disregard. But one
of the more sneaky lies now getting repeated is the one which implies
that added fluoride chemicals are no different than the naturally

added fluoride chemicals are exactly the same as naturally occurring
fluoride minerals. (CONTINUE READING)
