First mayoral candidate in Grand Rapids files papers, wants fluoride out of water
George, 63, says he has talked to Grand Rapids leaders about removing fluoride from the water, but they haven’t done anything about it.
“I think this is a big issue and, quite frankly, I have no political future to worry about,” he said. “I’m worried about the people of Grand Rapids. I think we’re doing them harm.
“If I win I can for sure do something about it, and even if I lose there’s going to be (people becoming aware of fluoride) who start asking questions. I look at this as a no-lose proposition.”
The city briefly considered an end to water fluoridation in 2008, for example. And Third Ward Commissioner Senita Lenear last fall broached the idea again

Fluoride in Water. Bill would give Maine Customers Final Say
Labbe, who has worked for public water systems for nearly 40 years, wouldn’t say whether he is anti-fluoride or believes fluoride is dangerous to drink.
“I am not going to answer that question,” Labbe said after a long pause. “I am pro information.”
Town boards would no longer be allowed to block petitioners from putting the question to water district voters.

If you ever read Hound & Gatos Food labels, you will notice that they are 100% real meat and all ingredients originate in the United States. Fluoride is never good for animals, so Hound & Gatos never uses fluoridated water in their pet food products. These are just some of the reasons that they have been awarded the “Most Trusted Pet Foods” award two years in a row.
