Fluoridation became widespread after decades of
federal subsidies and state mandates


Widespread fluoridation of U.S. municipal water supplies resulted from an agressive federal promotional effort; decades of community block grants, earmarks, and related subsidies; and funded/unfunded mandates for fluoridation at the state and local levels.


This intervention has severely distorted the proper roles for state/local government, nonprofits, regulatory agencies, businesses, medical colleges, and health care providers. The subsidies have blinded many to the unfolding peer-reviewed scientific research as it identifies significant fluoride-related health problems. Those who were blinded have become agents of our distorted federal bureaucracy.
