The 20 minute entertaining feature preceding the film FLUORIDEGATE, is up beat and though the subject matter is sad it keeps you smiling. But FLUORIDEGATE on the other hand is nothing to smile about especially if you believed that the EPA, Environmental Protection Agency, had your welfare, as their prime interest to protect. The scientists who do appear in the film, are concerned about your health and outline all the perilous facts abouthydrofluosilicic acid (fluoride) one of which is the issue of "forced medication", the other gruesome news is that fluoride is considered a hazardous waste when found in fertilizer. Enough, see the film and then visit your state representative.
