Nursery Water - With Added Fluoride!Submitted by think4yourself on Tue, 01/27/2009 - 00:55
Today I was at Wal-Mart, and was walking down the aisle when I saw gallon bottles of water for infants, called "Nursery Water".
"With Added Fluoride" it advertises on the front.
To help prevent tooth decay.... in babies?
I was shocked and disgusted to see such a think. I took a bottle of it to the Customer Service and made a complaint.
I did a search on the product when I got home.
The producer's web site: NurseryWater.com , which links to this web site that attempts to debunk "antifluoridationists". However, it doesn't substantiate a good reason for adding fluoride except for "preventing dental caries", which is already debunked by the fact that where fluoridation occurs there isn't actually seen an improvement of dental health.
So why live up to such scrutiny and still push the product? Why do they want our babies to drink fluoride, even when they don't even have teeth? Why are they so determined to add this to drinking water? Because they claim, it is a natural mineral that you "need".
I encourage you to stand against water fluoridation and products such as "Nursery Water".
Also, here is a petition you can sign to ask Wal-Mart to stop selling this product:
