Last night, at the fluoridation discussion there was a comment directed at me about responsibility. Seriously? I don't think we are the ones who need a lecture on responsibility. Please excuse me if when I wrote, "I received the annual water report from the city of Wautoma and it stated that our fluoride level is .1ppm, which is good! This would mean we are not adding this highly toxic carcinogen to our water supply. However, the Centers for Disease Control lists Wautoma as having a 1.1 ppm fluoride level. So which is it? I don’t really know and no one at the water department seems to either. I’m hoping to get an answer back today from the lovely lady from the water department. This is the same lady who sent me on a bit of a wild goose chase from the Department of Natural Resources to the Public Service Commission and now back to the City of Wautoma’s Water Department. Was this purposeful? I’m still unsure; but it is at the very most deceptive or at the very least incompetent." it was a bit harsh, but what would you guys call it? For over two years now I have been requesting annual reports from the city of Wautoma so I know what toxins are in my water. I am particularly concerned with the the fluoride. I actually called asking for the fluoride levels and instead of my question being answered I was sent a copy of the annual reports stating that the fluoride level was .1ppm. For over two years I believed my water was virtually free from this hazardous waste byproduct! I thought I had peace of mind knowing our family's bodies weren't being poisoned with this dangerous chemical. So imagine my dismay when I stumbled across the fluoride registry on the Centers for Disease Control's website and read that WAUTOMA WISCONSIN 54982 was fluoridating our water to 1.1 ppm! HUGE difference! I called the water company and asked about the fluoride in the water. I said that the CDC has Wautoma, WI listed at 1.1 and the water company's annual report has it listed at .1ppm. Which is it? Well, they didn't seem to know how much fluoride was in the water. To make matters worse, when I specifically asked if we fluoridate I was told "NO". It was only after I called back another time that I finally got the truth that, yes indeed, Wautoma does fluoridate to 1ppm! So when I said incompetent or deceptive, maybe I should have used the words irresponsible and negligent. For over two years my family has been unwittingly ingesting the very industrial waste byproduct we have been extra cautious not to ingest. We have since removed this noxious poison from our water, but many others are still drinking it; and even worse giving it to their newborn babies!
I'm sure you can understand my astonishment last night at the discussion when there was an implied reference to us (presumably meaning people who do not want to ingest dangerous, ineffective, and unnecessary chemicals) about "responsibility" by a water company official.... meaning... apparently we should all be responsible for knowing what we are putting in our bodies? Well, I could not agree more. There are no true health freedoms without responsibility. Unfortunately, since our health freedoms are being infringed upon because informed consent has been violated and our right to choose has been taken away from us by the water company, we have very little option! If anyone is being irresponsible with our bodies it is those fluoridators who have prescribed the public a medication available in an unregulated supply so that any unsuspecting victim may have as much fluoride as they want with unlimited access. Not having a fluoride warning label on the water bill? Neglecting to inform the public not to mix fluoridated water with baby formula so the child does not get an overdose? Yeah, I would call that irresponsible too. So when it comes to the matter of responsibility, YES, we want it!!! Please give it back to us!
