Maybe this is old information for you, but I hadn’t seen anything on the list about it. Discovered this last night on our local TV station, HOMTV which covers Haslett (my community) and neighboring Okemos collectively Meridian Township. I’ll include the link to the short video on it. There was a whole distorted propaganda pitch by a Barbie looking floozy, with just as false platinum tresses representing the Pro side.
MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - Last week the Michigan Department of Community Health gave out Fluoridation Equipment Grants to eleven cities in Michigan. The grant money was a donation from the Delta Dental Foundation.
The grant will go to updating old fluoride pumps at water treatment plants. Fluoride was first added to public drinking water back in the 960's. The first city in the world to have fluoridated water was Grand Rapids, Michigan. The results were impressive, there was a 60% reduction in cavities in children.
Fluoride protects against cavities by making the enamel harder so acid and bacteria can't penetrate the tooth and cause decay. Tooth decay is the most common childhood disease.
It is important that the new pumps work well because too much fluoride can have a negative effect. Dental fluorosis is too much fluoride in the diet and can cause streaks and mottling on teeth. However, too little fluoride in the diet causes weak enamel, scientists have found the perfect balance of .7 parts per million.
Heat doesn't effect the fluoride so if you use the water to make your tea or coffee, you will still receive the healthy benefits.
MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - You can't see it, smell it or taste it but it will help keep you healthy. Find out what is in our drinking water on Meridian Magazine
I couldn’t get the video to come up on that page, but first saw it as one of those 9 video “after-viewing” suggestions that came up on a HOMTV Epilepsy segment, a short YouTube that I’d been watching. For what it’s worth, I ended up Googling “fluoride + epilepsy” and that brought up a whole other issue, not relevant here.
I don’t know if you will have the same problem with the video, but here’s the link to the HOMTV epilepsy page in the event the grant piece is included there again. The videos appear to be random but somewhat related.
Decided to see which 11 communities were chosen and how much they received. Here are a few more links to that information:
I found only a brief mention of the grant in the July Township Council minutes with no details.
With such a substantial financial infusion, a corporation’s credibility like Delta Dental’s is enhanced greatly and they appear as generous supporters of a “good and right” dental health program to the average brainwashed sheeple. If I thought it would be a difficult campaign to influence our local Township Council to stop fluoridation prior to that grant, it would appear to be an even more monumentally improbable notion now. Sigh……
