Use this as a tool when creating emails and letters to council members, First Five administrators and the Mayors office.  When we last spoke with Bob Filner (leading candidate in the San Diego’s Mayoral election) he was completely informed about the problem of fluoride.  In fact he educated us on the issue.  bob@bobfilnerformayor.com.  Test your new knowledge on Bob?  Get back to us if he answers at [email protected]

How fluoride is specifically defined officially by various agencies.  By Dr. Richard Sauerheber  8.24.12

13. The Department of Agriculture defines fluorides as pollutants.

while toothpaste is prohibited from being swallowed.
