New Jersey kids fed breast cancer drugs and fluoride

by | 4th, March 2012

THEY’VE been feeding the kids Tamoxifen in Chatham, New Jersey. It’s a breast cancer medication. And the good news is that none of the children has breast cancer. The other news is that the authorities had meant to give the young minds chewable fluoride tablets to stave off tooth decay:

“Fortunately, it’s very unlikely that this specific drug would cause any serious or adverse effects when used for only a short periods of time,” said Daniel Hussar, a professor with the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy at the University of the Sciences.

So. That’s ok, then. Inded, it might be better to chow down anything other than fluoride. As our pal 14 writes:

Sure, we’ve all been told fluoride is added to the water to promote strong teeth, but is it causing more harm than good? Claims about fluoride dangers are wide-ranging, everything from causing damage to the thyroid, to dental fluorosis, the reduction of IQ, to my personal favorite, being used as a dumbing down mechanism for the masses so we can be controlled by the government and turned into mindless zombie sheep.

Mind the water. Stick to the Coke.
