Public floride, iodine and vitamin D

Maybe the Pinellas County Commissioners also do not themselves use iodized salt, seeing that too as some shadow-governmental plot. Worldwide, iodine deficiency affects two billion people and is the leading preventable cause of mental retardation. According to public health experts, iodization of salt may be the world’s simplest and most cost-effective measure available to improve health.

What about vitamin D? Very few foods in nature contain vitamin D. Fortified foods provide most of the vitamin D in the American diet.  In the 1930s, a milk fortification program was implemented in the United States to combat rickets, then a major public health. By the commissioners’ twisted logic, would they have us return to an era of twisted spines?

Why not burn some witches while they’re at it?

Ignorance is such a terrible thing to waste on politicians.
