Fluoride is an inorganic, monatomic anion of fluorine, whose salts are typically white or colorless. Fluoride salts typically have distinctive bitter tastes and are odorless. In 1945, Grand Rapids became the first city in the world to fluoridate its drinking water. The Grand Rapids water fluoridation study was originally sponsored by the U.S. Surgeon General but was taken over by the NIDR shortly after the Institute’s inception in 1948. The film investigates the theory that the addition of fluoride to our drinking water is not as beneficial to dental health as originally thought, and may, in fact, be one of the causes of a cornucopia of neurological diseases that have arisen over the last several decades in America.
