Abolish the FDA


Tags HealthInterventionism

Not only should we abolish the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, we need to abolish the FDA as well since it recently approved the mass medication of Americans with a harmful substance. According to the American Dental Association, the FDA has now approved dental claims on bottles of fluoridated water which say that drinking fluoridated water may reduce the risk of dental cavities or tooth decay.

Of course, fluoride or no fluoride, a truly free society would have no federal FDA. For more on the FDA see Dale Steinreich.

For more on fluoride, see Murray Rothbard's "Fluoridation Revisited," or my contribution, "The Fluoridation Question." Or, if you want a doctor's opinion, see Donald Miller's "Fluoride Follies."
