    Governor Jindal and the Legislature of Louisiana were repeatedly warned of fluoride's toxicity, poor research history, and the inadvisability of passing this law by hundreds of concerned activists from across the nation who have researched the issue for decades. It is illegal and unethical to mass medicate a population with no individual monitoring by qualified medical personnel, yet Louisiana joins multiple states that are now openly breaking their own laws. Dr. Paul Connett, an acknowledged expert in the field of fluoride has spoken against the insidious practice of fluoridation in front of the Louisiana Environmental Action Network and at multiple meetings across the state to inform citizens and the Legislature of how the science of fluoridation is very far from being resolved. Now, in addition to the mega oil spill that is ruining your coastline, you are working diligently to place a known neurotoxin in your drinking water, where the majority of your water will eventually be expelled into your creeks and rivers without ever being used by the very people it is meant to affect. You will soon be paying the phosphate fertilizer industry and China to get rid of their toxic waste for free. You've been duped by the biggest scam in U. S. history. Way to go, Louisiana!

    I think that was a smart move adding these dentists to the Flouride board. This governor Bobby is a smart man.
