It is used to kill rats and insects. DANGEROUS if taken internally or inhaled. Dr. Leo Spira, M.D., New York, says: "It deprives the body of Calcium. Heart, diabetic and kidney patients are warned NOT to drink fluoridated water." CANCER: "The results of my experiment indicate that animals on treated (fluoriated water) developed cancer earlier than the controls — (those not drinking fluoridated water!") From a letter by Dr. Alfred Taylor, research scientist, in the Biochemical Institute, University of Texas. SMALL DOSAGE HIGHLY TOXIC: "Fluoride intoxication is. insidious and ACCUMULATIVE, especially when the daily dose is small, but Us effects are permanent and irreparable," says Dr. Charles Dillon. FLUORIDE IS A DANGEROUSiAND UNSCIENTIFIC EXPERIMENT: "It is unscientific and impractical to prescribe a toxic substance for the duration of your life, as ,an experiment, Whether we need it or not, against our will, and without being able to stop taking it if we want to do so," says Dr. C. A. Brusch, M.D., of Cambridge Medical Center, Mass. FLUORIDATION is the experimental MASS- MEDICATION of entire populations by the impregnation of entire water supplies of whole communities with METALIC fluorine compounds INCAPABLE of being assimilated as food, under conditions of duress, without cession or reasonable chance of escape." (Dr. Paul Manning.) SHALL WE BE GUINEA PIGS? Why poison our good water? If you feel you may be depriving some child of a benefit, forget it. The recent report (June 1, 1955) to the City of New York says that the City can buy proper daily dosage tablets for 20 cents (or less) per thousand, and the City can save 90% or more of the cost by giving each child tablets to be taken in his milk or water each day. In this way he gets only the proper amount and can stop taking fluoride when no longer needed. COMMITTEE AGAINST FLUORIDATION Frank C. Douglas, Chairman 6. •, An Invitation This is your personal Invitation to visit Blytheville'n oldest ready-to-wear shop.
