How many decades did we hear from the scientists who worked for industry that cigarettes weren't addictive, even in the face of mounting research.

No one died after smoking one cigarette, or one pack, or one carton but after twenty years, cancers started to "mysteriously" appear. We were told these deaths were unrelated to smoking. New science revealed the mystery.

The American Cancer Society states the "During 1995, approximately 2.1 million people in developed countries died as a result of smoking. Tobacco use is responsible for nearly one in five deaths in the United States. But it was 100% safe just a few years ago.

In the 1950's, 19,293 dentists advised us that smoking was o.k. - we're professionals, trust us. Earlier scientists for the government approved DDT was safe and effective. Around that same time water fluoridation was also said to be safe.

Mainstream scientists were wrong about tobacco and DDT.

Scientists and government agencies approved a variety of chemicals and drugs and told us they were extensively tested and were safe.

They include asbestos, DDT (pesticide), PCB (industrial chemical ), Lead (paint and gasoline additive), MTBE (gasoline additive), Dioxin (pesticide), Agent Orange (defoliant), Dalkon shield (contraceptive), Thalidomide (pregnancy anti nausea drug).

You be the judge as to how safe fluoride it is for your children and families - that's the only sensible thing to do, afterall, you betting their long term health.
