    In the video, you said you don’t understand the forces which are killing reefs everywhere but Cuba. I’ll explain. Everywhere the reefs are dying the water is fluoridated using hydrofluorosilicic acid, a toxic waste from the smoke stacks of fertilizer and or aluminum plants. It contains 23% sodium fluoride (rat poison), lead, arsenic, mercury, barium, cadmium and palonium 20. 95 of this poisoned water goes into our rivers, along with runoff from agricultural pesticides containing more rat poison. So, our rivers are perpetually poisoning our oceans.

    Cuba no longer uses these poisons in its water or agriculture. Hence the lush living reefs.

    In the video, “Cubam An Accidental Eden,” it was said we don’t understand the forces which are killing reefs everywhere but Cuba. I’d like to answer that question.

    Everywhere the reefs are dying the drinking water (on the land) is fluoridated using hydrofluorosilicic acid, a higly poisonous waste by-product from the smoke stacks of fertilizer and or aluminum plants. It contains 23% sodium fluoride (rat poison), lead, arsenic, mercury, barium, cadmium and palonium 20. It’s estimated that 95% of this poisoned water goes into our rivers, along with runoff from agricultural pesticides containing more rat poison. So, our rivers are perpetually poisoning our oceans.

    Cuba no longer uses these poisons in its water or organic agriculture. Hence the lush living reefs.

    Why doesn’t the slow, perpetual poisoning of hundreds of millions of people not justify an expose? Don’t you care about us? Aren’t your own children exposed to this systemic poisoning? Don’t you care about the health of our land, rivers and oceans? What’s wrong with you people? Grow a conscience!
