RE: Brittle Bones and HFSA-Fluoride
2 years ago, I was content to ignore all the controversy surrounding fluoride in the water, but not anymore. Now that I know that HFSA is the product used, and that it makes bones brittle, I worry about getting up there in age and having my bones break due to a fall.
It is very reasonable to have a moratorium on this product because the supplier will not provide the listing of contaminants or proof their product is safe for all consumers. That speaks volumes.
I hope the city voters really think seriously about this Measure A and vote YES because I can’t vote since I live in the County. I pay for the water. I didn’t vote to put fluoride in. I can’t vote to get it out. This seems very inequitable to me.
I want to thank Roger Gitlin, running for Supervisor First District, and Councilwoman Donna Westfall for endorsing Measure A. I can’t vote for them either, but I wish I could.
