There’s good news on the fluoride front in New York City this week, but your help is needed there (and also in San Diego). Councilor Peter Vallone is introducing a bill to the New York City Council that would end fluoridation in NYC. We need help from all our New York City readers to support this effort to protect the safety of the NYC water supply and remove this toxic chemical from the tap water there.</p> If you live in NYC, please sign this petition from the Fluoride Action Network:
Fluoride is a poison
As you may already know, the fluoride that’s dumped into the water supplies in cities like NYC is actually derived from the toxic byproducts of the phosphate mining industry. Twenty-four studies have now been publishing linking fluoride to low IQs in children, including a recent study that showed water fluoridation strongly correlated to a statistically significant reduction in children’s IQs (http://www.prisonplanet.com/fluorid…).
Also, if fluoridated tap water is used to create infant formula, this can cause a toxic overdose of fluoride in infants, delivering up to 200 times the fluoride level of breast milk and causing fluoride poisoning (http://www.naturalnews.com/030123_f…). This can lead to cancer, tooth discoloration and neurological harm, among other side effects.
Oppose fluoride in San Diego
The city of San Diego is right now threatening to add fluoride chemicals to another section of the city, affecting 1.4 million residents there. If you live in San Diego, please help us oppose this fluoridation plan by taking action now with this petition (urgent deadline, please act today):
These petitions are being organized by the Fluoride Action Network (www.FluorideAlert.org), where the executive director professor Paul Connett leads a science-based effort to eradicate fluoride chemicals from our water and thereby protect the health of our families and children.
He’s the author of The Case Against Fluoride – How Hazardous Waste Ended Up in Our Drinking Water and the Bad Science and Powerful Politics That Keep It There (http://www.amazon.com/Case-Against-…).
This book is packed with information, citations and the scientific evidence on why fluoride is extremely dangerous for humans to ingest in the quantities currently being used in municipal water supplies. Highly recommended reading.
