Fortunately tactics effective at scaring the public do not work in the scientific community. Pages of the EPA response summarize nine reasons presented in the petition that allege, "Purposeful fluoridation of drinking water presents an unreasonable risk to human health from neurotoxicity.
Since her ascension to the office of Governor, Des Moines Water Works has requested a meeting with Governor Reynolds on numerous occasions. While Governor Reynolds continues to refuse to meet with Des Moines Water Works, she has appeared or partnered in numerous events with the Iowa Farm Bureau and other commodity groups in her first 13 months in office.
One would think the Iowa Farm Bureau could deal with being ignored in a news cycle so long as they have the ear of decision makers in Des Moines and Washington D. As well as Rep.

Redated from March I was a Christian recently enough to remember what it felt like to really believe the Creator of the universe talked to me, to really believe I would go to heaven and unbelievers would go to hell, to really believe that prayer made a difference.. It sure felt like I really believed that stuff.
And other Christians tell me they really believe that stuff, too. Safe from the Sea is small in scope - a mere pages - but it is gripping in its messages and intensity. It begins simply: Olaf Torr, an officer and one of three survivors of a Lake Superior ore ship dubbed the Ragnarok that was lost in , is dying.
Two characters are discussing something but they're discussing two totally different things. Their actions and responses — vague enough to be applied to either topic — happen to match up so well, though, that neither notices for some time, if at all.
The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), agreed in , aim to halve the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation between and
