FAN one step closer to removing fluoride from public water supplies

Six-hundred physicians, dentists, scientists and environmentalists cosign report submited to Congress calling for end to fluoridation

By The Fluoride Action Network

A statement asking Congress to end water fluoridation in the United States has been released by the Fluoride Action Network (FAN). Over 600 professionals, including a Nobel Prize winner, officers in the Union that represents Environmental Protection Agency professionals, and members of the National Research Council panel on fluoride’s toxicology, have signed the statement.

The report urges Congressional members to "recognize that fluoridation is outdated, has serious risks that far outweigh any minor benefits, violates sound medical ethics and denies freedom of choice."

It cites eight recent events that call for an urgent end to water fluoridation. Among them:

• A 500-page review of fluoride’s toxicology by the National Research Council of the National Academies, published in 2006.

• Evidence from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found 32 percent of U.S. children have dental fluorosis, caused by fluoridated water.

• The American Dental Association’s 2006 policy change, which recommends not giving fluoridated water to infants for the first 12 months of life.

• A Harvard University study that found a five- to seven-fold increased risk of osteosarcoma (bone cancer) among young men who were exposed to fluoride between the ages of 6 and 8.

• The CDC’s recognition that fluoride is beneficial in reducing tooth decay when it’s applied topically, not taken systemically.

The statement calls for members of Congress to sponsor a new congressional hearing on fluoridation that requires those who continue to support water fluoridation to provide scientific basis, under oath, for their continued recommendations.

According to one of the statement’s signers, Dr. Arvid Carlsson, winner of the 2000 Nobel Prize for Medicine, "Fluoridation is against all principles of modern pharmacology. It’s really obsolete."

A failed experiment

Water fluoridation is just one of many public health policies that time has proven to be a failure in terms of public health, but resoundingly successful in terms of setting people up as candidates for medical intervention and retarding their mental function for political purposes. The key to pressing the advantage FAN has gained to the point that the idiotic era of water fluoridation will come to an end, is you and me. Go to FAN’s website. Take advantage of the materials available, network with other communities that have or are in the process of removing fluoride from their town’s water supply. There are wheels here that do not need to be reinvented.

As we begin to reawaken as a nation, through 9/11 truth and the Ron Paul Revolution (see pages 6-9) we will be needing our wits about us. Systemic doses of fluoridate, as delivered in parts per million through tap water, makes people more passive, lowers intelligence, depresses immune function and is a known carcinogen. It also makes bones more brittle and causes arthritic-type symptoms.

Though many people still believe that fluoridated water prevents cavities, the state of Americans’ dental health disproves the claim. It is also known that, if fluoride has any beneficial effect, it would be in topical application on dental surfaces only. That would mean that water is being fluoridated to make us sick and stupid, not protect our teeth.

The fluorides added to drinking water are a waste product of phosphate fertilizer manufacturing and aluminum production and have never been subjected to toxicological testing to determine safety. Fluoride is not FDA approved; the EPA considers it an environmental hazard.

The addition of fluoride to drinking water has been a huge experiment that must be concluded as a total failure. To understand the entire subject on a level that will steel you for activism, read the book "The Fluoride Deception" by Christopher Bryson (see ad page 21)

In the meantime, Dr. Joseph Mercola suggests we protect ourselves from fluoride by using only non-fluoride toothpaste and not receiving fluoride treatments from dentists. If you live in a community that fluoridates the water, you can remove the fluoride with a reverse osmosis filter. Be sure you’re filtering not only the water you drink, but also the water you use to wash vegetables, make ice cubes and cook with.
