If your state does not participate, you can contact your community’s water provider (utility) to learn the fluoride content of your drinking water.

That's because federal environmental and health officials on Friday called for a reduction of fluoride levels in America's drinking water, the first recommended change in more than 50 years.

Since the days of World War II, when this nation prevailed by building the world’s first atomic bomb, U. public health leaders have maintained that low doses of fluoride are safe for people, and good for children’s teeth. Fluoride was the key chemical in atomic bomb production, according to the documents.

That safety verdict should now be re-examined in the light of hundreds of once-secret WWII documents obtained by Griffiths and Bryson –including declassified papers of the Manhattan Project, the U. Massive quantities of fluoride– millions of tons– were essential for the manufacture of bomb-grade uranium and plutonium for nuclear weapons throughout the Cold War.
