More than 15 years ago, Murray Rothbard pointed out the problems with fluoridation. He pointed out the immorality of adding fluoride to the water, that the science was bad, and that the entire fluoridation movement was engineered by the corporate elite.
Now a few NYC politcos are trying to end the fluoridation of water, largely because the science behind fluoridation is, as Rothbard argued, terrible.
On January 18, 2011, NYC Council Member Peter Vallone, Jr. introduced legislation (Int 0463-2011) “prohibiting the addition of fluoride to the water supply.” Five additional NYC Council Members have co-sponsored the bill (Council Members Cabrera, Crowley, Foster, Williams and Halloran).
Vallone writes on his website, “There is a growing body of evidence that fluoride does more harm than good.”
Recently, two federal government agencies admitted that US children are fluoride-overdosed and it's ruining their teeth and may be damaging their bones.(1) The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that over 41% of adolescents suffer with dental fluorosis - white spotted, yellow, brown and/or pitted teeth - 4% of it severe. (2) The Mayo Clinic, CDC and the American Dental Association advise that infant formula NOT be mixed with fluoridated water, but do little to educate the public about this dire warning.
More than 3,500 professionals (including 300 dentists) now urge that fluoridation be stopped, citing scientific evidence that fluoridation is ineffective and has serious health risks.
I'm not sure who the Fluoride Action Network is, but this is a very scary and informative video on fluoride. You won't be drinking water containing fluoride after this video. Also, notice the early government propaganda that was run in favor of fluoride in water.
Bottom line: Drink private bottled water.
