- Fluoride has been in America's drinking water since 1951
- Standardized test scores have been declining in America since 1953
- Tooth decay rates have been unchanged since 1949
- Fluorine has the highest electron affinity of any element in the periodic table, sporting an electronegativity of 3.98 and a cubic crystal stucture.
It seems likely that, in a burst of irony, local governments trying to save money may completely undermine the federal government's program of dosing its citizens with this highly toxic element. We can only wait and see if bad economic times lead to more freedom from forced medication.
