Fluoride in the water benefits us. It’s not a tool for the government to control our minds. Journalist Tory Shepherd knows that and wrote this piece to admonish those in the Australian government who are spreading misinformation and fear. That makes her a Dimland Radio science hero. Yay!
A few ads to comment on, because they bug me or I thought it could be funnier. Warning! I sing. Sort of.
What Skeptics Deal With
I posted a link on my Facebook page to a 20/20 piece done by John Stossel in which he exposes the snake oil salesman Kevin Trudeau as a liar and money-grubbing vulture. The first comment on my posting was by a troubled woman who believes that prescription drugs nearly killed her several times and that John Stossel takes bribes to skew his reports.
We skeptics were respectful, but we wanted her to back up her assertions. She called us lemmings and suggested we were lazy. She told us she didn’t have the time to waste and then unfriended me.
