Story at a Glance – Flouridation

December 3, 2011 8:29 am

  • In the past 13 months, 31 communities in Canada (10), New Zealand (2) and the U.S. (19) have voted to stop fluoridating their water supplies. The total number of people freed from forced fluoridaiton in this period is over 2.5 million. Meanwhile, councilors are pushing for the discontinuation of fluoridation in New York City.
  • Fluoride is a toxic drug. Fluoridating water is reckless, as you cannot control the dose ingested, or who receives it, and there’s no medical supervision. Water fluoridation clearly violates the individual’s right to informed consent to medicine
  • The Fluoride Action Network (FAN) urges communities to pressure local water departments to place a warning on the water bill, stating that parents should not use fluoridated water to mix baby formula. Other action items are also specified
  • There are now 25 studies showing that fluoride is associated with IQ reduction, even at fluoride levels as low as 0.3 to 3 parts per million, which overlaps the range in many American communities (0.7 to 1.2 ppm). FAN argues that it is reckless to expose a baby to up to 300 times more fluoride than present in mothers’ milk (0.004 ppm).
