I grew up in Mt.Uniacke where the Bill Lynch equipment was stored when not in use and that was fascinating , sometimes they would do things for Halloween ! It was fun to go to the Forum in Halifax and see exotic animals Brought from Florida by a Mr Frank Weed , Turns out my Mom knew him when she grew up in Florida ! Wow what a small world ! Thank you Mr Bill Lynch for great memories !

I'm certainly not sided one way or the other on this topic and can see both sides. That said I'm not sure why we are all ingesting (if on city water, which I am not...which leads me to ask ...should I be asking HRM for fluoride supplements if its so important), a foreign chemical for a health concern that is combated by regular brushing and flossing and cutting out the junk food. I live in Hammonds Plains and I'm on well water, my kids have only ever had fluoride at the dentist and to date with a 15 and 16 year old, we have had only one cavity. I don't necessarily think having the fluoride added causes any problems, but maybe we should add a lot more to our water...make it a liquid vitamin. They say vitamin D decreases the risk of heart disease, cancer and depression...can we add that too?
