San Diegans for Safe Drinking Water

San Diegans for Safe Drinking Water

I can't make it but this is an important issue for us...

Our next San Diegans for Safe Drinking Water meeting will be held in Hillcrest at the Joyce Beers Community Center on Saturday, January 28th from 2pm to 4pm. The center is located at 3900 Vermont St. 92103, near the Von's / Trader Joe's shopping center. There is plenty of free underground parking at the shopping center. The meeting agenda will include presentations, videos and discussions covering two main topics: First, effective filtration techniques at home; and second, what steps we can take to achieve an honest investigation into the matter of Industrial Fluoridation. You are making a difference with your letter writing, e-mails and phone calls so thank you! Keep it up but remember to keep your comments civil, fact based and demand “DUE DILIGENCE” from our City officials whom we are paying with our tax money! They work for us – why are we being subjected to this “solution to pollution”?

In the case of potatoes--the nation's most popular vegetable--they're treated with fungicides during the growing season, then sprayed with herbicides to kill off the fibrous vines before harvesting. After they're dug up, the potatoes are treated yet again to prevent them from sprouting. "Try this experiment: Buy a conventional potato in a store, and try to get it to sprout. It won't," says Moyer, who is also farm director of the Rodale Institute (also owned by Rodale Inc., the publisher of Prevention). "I've talked with potato growers who say point-blank they would never eat the potatoes they sell. They have separate plots where they grow potatoes for themselves without all the chemicals." READ MORE
