Topsfield resident Jeffy Demeter believes there is a toxin in the water—fluoride.
Jeffy Demeter is petitioning to have fluoride taken out of Topsfield water. Wicked Local Photo / Kathryn O'BrienDemeter is part of a growing coalition of people in Massachusetts, and throughout the country, who are questioning the addition of fluoride to public water supplies. Fluoride has been in the Topsfield water supply since 1953, when Town Meeting voted to add it because of its oral health benefits. Today, the compound is still used topically by dental professionals, but Demeter likens it to a poison when ingested regularly.
Three years ago, she began learning about the possible negative effects of fluoride, and this summer she took action in her hometown.
"I thought, there’s no better time than now," Demeter said. "This issue has to be decided by local governments. That’s how it got into the water, and that’s how we’re going to take it out."..................
