Kangaroos poisoned by Fluoride

But! It must be added to your drinking water, cause it is good for you?

The EPA's Bruce Dawson says the fluoride is being absorbed by the nearby vegetation which is then being eaten by the kangaroos.

He says the fluoride poisons the kangaroos and makes lesions grow on their bones, which renders them lame.

"Once kangaroos have restricted movement [it] has a significant impact on their welfare. So this is something that needs to be managed and avoided."

He says there is not a lot of information around about the impact of fluoride on kangaroos.

  3. I'm around sweetie, just kind of burned out about all the nasty news lately (well - always).

    Just the mention of Israel is provoking the vomit response these days.

    And these poor kangaroos have now put me over the edge... ha ha

    You're doing a great job though, I see!! Keep it up - perhaps I will get around to doing something with my sad little blog...

    ;)

    Buffy getting the Barbie ready!

    Roo Steak!!!

  4. I know, what you mean, but, Israel has been in the news so much lately.

    I was going to not blog a single thing on them today and then boom, breaking news, Israel is set to become a natural gas exporter.

    Well, anyone who has been paying attention knows where that is coming from, clue, it does not belong to Israel.

    I saw someone made a comment, think it was yyc, no matter how much Israel does wrong, commits crimes, steals, cheats, wages war, assasinates, whatever.
    The government of Canada stands at the side of that country.
    Which speaks volumes for the government of Canada.
