A covert good guy lowered the Fluoride levels in the town water supply.

Residents of a small community in Vermont were blindsided last month by news that one official in their water department quietly lowered fluoride levels nearly four years ago, giving rise to worries about their children’s dental health and transparent government — and highlighting the enduring misinformation around water fluoridation.

Katie Mather, who lives in Richmond, a town of about 4,100 in northwestern Vermont, said at a water commission meeting this week that her dentist recently found her two kids’ first cavities. She acknowledged they eat a lot of sugar, but noted that her dentist recommended against supplemental fluoride because the town’s water should be doing the trick.

4,100 should be a good sample size to see how removing an unnecessary toxin affects health. Note the CDC says it is toxic. Note that no one drank if before the 40s. Note the local sugar intake. Note that the US can’t even produce its own unnecessary toxins anymore.
