New York City Legislator Introduces Bill to Stop Fluoridation

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.

  1. Next up: iodized salt? As far as I can tell, it's actually beneficial.

  2. Most of Europe (16 countries) has considered and has rejected fluoridation and is 98% fluoride free. The WHO (United Nations) reports that they have a better tooth decay rate than any fluoridated country.

    However, several European countries allow fluoridated salt. I would not recommend using it, but it does have the virtue of being choice rather than forcing everyone to be medicated.

    If you want fluoride in your water, put it in your own glass of water; leave the rest of us out of it.

  3. Fluoride is a metal that the body does not metabolize. The people responsible for adding this to the nations drinking water should be jailed for crimes against humanity. non-metabolic metals accumulate in the tissue and distort the electro-chemical signals in the body. This makes people weak and stupid over time...Just what the government terrorists want.

  4. Isn't it strange, doctors cannot force one person to take a drug, yet the government wants to force everyone to be drugged with fluoride, a prescription drug, against their will and with no medical supervision, no control over how much you consume and no treatment for side effects.

    Fluoridation not only causes cancer, brittle bones, lowered IQ, etc., (see www.fluoridealert.org) but is an absolute waste of tax money. People only drink 1/2% of the water they use. 99 1/2% goes down the drain.
    For example, for every $1000 of fluoride chemical added to water, $995 would be directly wasted down the drain in toilets, showers, dishwashers, etc., $5 would be consumed in water by the people, and less than $0.50 would be consumed by children.
    Can you think of a more wasteful government program? Giving away fluoride tablets free to anyone who wants them would be far cheaper and certainly more ethical.

  5. I think the government is now taking Flouride out of the water supply because it has worked far too well at making their tax cattle weak and stupid. Our Owners want productive barnyard animals just like any farmer. They don't want their cattle just to give up like what happened in the Soviet Union.

  6. As long as the Private Bottled Water does not come the public water supply, as some do. A good filtration system may be more reliable and ultimately less expensive.

  7. What are real alternatives? Bottled water typically has fluoride added (most "private" bottled water is municipal resold), many filters I have checked do not eliminate fluoride. Well water properly tested or access to river/lake is physical option, however virtually outlawed legally in many areas.

  8. Bob: "Bottom line: Drink private bottled water. "

    Which are the private bottled water brands that have no fluoride? As far as I know like 989%+ of them have fluoride in them.

  9. Dr Mercolas site has much info on problems with fluoridation and which brands of water are purified or not from fluoridated supplys.

  10. Collect your own water through a water tank and purify it for drinking.

  11. First off, get some facts straight. Fluoride is not actually a metal, it is a non-metallic element. It was added to drinking water in an attempt to prevent cavities, nothing to do with "mind control."

    As for fluoride *causing* ailments, watch your wording. If the evidence of fluoride causing harm was that strong, it would have been out of the water supply years ago. As for Europe's improved cavity rates, don't discount confounding factors: do they have better dental coverage than we do, etc.

    Another note: if something is "scary," consider the reasons why it scares you. Could the author have an agenda in mind?

    Bottom line: I don't know enough about the research on fluoride to form an opinion, but it is always best to look at the facts and make up your own mind. Be sure to check out the credibility of the sources.

  12. @Anonymous posts #3 and 5: I see the "government program" has worked on you. You do realize that the "mind control" baloney has been around since the 1950's? Now instead of "The Commies are coming to get us!" it's "government terrorists".

    P.S. You couldn't pay me to take medical advice from "Dr." Mercola.

  13. Modern science indicates that ingesting fluoride does not reduce tooth decay. Fluoride is neither a nutrient nor essential for healthy teeth. Since it alters a body part in ways not intended by nature, fluoride is a drug. Fluoride, like all drugs, has adverse side effects and shouldn't be administered in the water supply with the dose regulated by thirst and not weight, health, age or need.

    NYC residents need to contact their city council members and the Mayor and tell them to voted in favor of this legislation to stop fluoridation which is currently costing about $20 million annually
