Letter to the Editor - October 25: Why pay for toxins?

A NEWLY published study in Harvard's The Lancet weighs in on the toxins causing autism and ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder) in our children.

Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai identify 10 neurotoxins, along with lead, arsenic, fluoride and chemicals we can't pronounce, as adding to the higher incidence of cognitive and behavioural disorders.

Why then are we still paying $65,000 every year to add fluoride to our water?
