“Don’t drink the water,” that’s what Oliver Outerbridge is telling his neighbors.
It’s ironic because Outerbridge is a restaurant owner in Portland, Maine-a state which has some of the best tasting drinking water in the country.
“We are literally consuming a toxic substance,” Outbridge said, “we are medicating everyone.”
His issue is obviously not the taste, but what Portland adds to its municipal water – fluoride.
“[Fluoride] causes multiple diseases,” he said. “It’s been shown study after study to cause cancer as well as many other debilitating diseases.”
Outerbridge’s claims are echoed by anti-fluoride activists across the country, but are vehemently denied by most dentists and government scientists.
