Patient discussion about threat

Q. What drug do you feel is the largest threat to our nation? There are lots and lots of drugs easily available to man kind. What drug do you feel is the largest threat to our nation?

A. Hydrofluosilicic acid which is a hazradous waste byproduct of the phosphate industry used to fluoridate water in two thirds of this country! Even if you don't have it in your community, processed foods mafe in cities that do will have it. I could list for days how this is a "drug".

However, all this is just a general advice - if you have specific question you may want to consult your doctor (e.g. a pediatrician).

Take care,
