Fluoride Eats Windows Says Boardman Who Sided With Anti-Fluoride Activists
By Heather Callaghan, Editor
As people wake up to the true nature of fluoride added to the drinking water supply, expect to hear more of these bold voices at town meetings.
Despite what we’ve all been told about fluoride as a cavity preventative, it’s really an industrial-grade, waste byproduct of the fertilizer industry, called hydrofluorosilicic acid. Pictures have circulated social media even showing the corrosive chemical eating through metal.
Potsdam is a village in New York in St. Lawrence County. The village Board of Trustees there met last Tuesday to discuss whether the fluoridation equipment at the water treatment plant should be replaced or removed.

This made the board members begin researching fluoridation. However, the topic of the meeting was never supposed to be about the merits or demerits of fluoridating public water. That’s when the levy broke, so to speak.
A number of people concerned about fluoride showed up and seven of them spoke during the public comment period.
Watertown Daily Times reported:
Dean Laubscher, who has sent a number of emails with anti-fluoridation information to the trustees, addressed the board first. At one point, he held up a bag with two fluoride filters, which he said cost about $70.
“Not only do I pay for fluoride, I pay to remove it,” he said. “Tonight, I respectfully ask the village of Potsdam to immediately cease and desist the use of (fluoride) … for the health and well-being of our community.”
None of the public spoke in favor of water fluoridation. Not a one.
A citizen created an online survey about fluoride in the water and discussions at the meeting – her survey garnered 26 signatures in one day.
Matthew Sweeney said:
To me, it’s so simple — when I turn on the faucet on, I just want water. I don’t want anything added to it.
This is where things get interesting to this writer. I’m sure boardmembers are used to people voicing opinions that run counter to mainstream opinion. But rarely do you see a boardmember joining one of them!
After Sweeney spoke, trustee Stephen J. Warr spoke up to say “it eats windows.”
He admitted a little-known oddity about fluoride. He explained that the windows at the treatment plant were degraded due to the fumes of fluoride treatment in the public water.
Now that is something think about…
“I can’t speak for the rest of the board, they have to make up their own mind, but I’m on your side,” Mr. Warr concluded to the residents.
If you are a resident in the Potsdam, NY area, you may want to visit the next meeting where the issue will be on the agenda on Sept. 18.
