Cathy Justus: Municipal water fluoridation killed my championship show horses

Wayne and Cathy Justus had been raising show-quality quarter horses in California for years, and had a wall full of blue ribbons to show for it, when they decided to move their operation to Pagosa Springs, CO to take advantage of the clean water that would ensure the continuation of their success as breeders. The clean mountain springs and high pastures seemed perfect.
Their horses had never had health problems, but that stopped abruptly when Pagosa Springs added silicofluorides to the municipal water supply, the main source of water for the horses. The horses began to display numerous and diffuse symptoms that they were unable to classify, and, worse, baffled their veterinarian. Colic, Cushing’s syndrome, foals dying, mares dying. Eventually, they lost six beautiful show horses and four dogs, and there was no explanation.
