Letter: Fluoride dangers

The FDA, which is infamous for its lack of action on many important issues, has moved to require a caution on fluoride containing toothpaste saying, “WARNING: Keep out of reach of children under 6 years of age. If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, seek professional help or contact a poison control center immediately.”

It is hard to believe that the smart people of Aspen and Snowmass choose to dose the purest drinking waters in the nation with a neurotoxin. Fluoride is only effective when used topically, as in toothpaste.

Carbondale runs the water that comes from Aspen and Snowmass through a reverse osmosis filtration system that rids it of the neurotoxin fluoride. Thank God Carbondale is smart enough to not succumb to the industry lie.
