Massive Lawsuit May End US Water Fluoridation
The Fluoride Action Network (FAN) and other organizations are working hard to make some progress at eliminating one of the toxic daggers aimed at the hearts of people. Fighting one of the most uphill battles possible, the organization and several others have been trudging through the massive set-up that is the legal system, trying to end water fluoridation in the US.
Recently, Stuart Cooper, Campaign Director of the Fluoride Action Network published an article seeking support for their effort to end fluoridation with a lawsuit.
Medical/health and environmental groups including FAN are suing the EPA to end fluoridation. The EPA was served with a petition, and over 2,500 solid pages of scientific evidence documenting the dangers of fluoride.
The mainstream studies further proving fluoride’s ability to lower the intelligence of children consuming it were cited, along with over 50 human studies and 100 animal studies proving the neurotoxicity of fluoride.
Reading from the Fluoride Action Network director’s article:
“The Fluoride Action Network (FAN), along with a coalition of environmental and public health groups has filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in response to their denial of our petition under Section 21 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) seeking a ban on water fluoridation.
We believe this lawsuit is an unprecedented opportunity to end the practice once and for all in the U.S., and potentially throughout the world, based on the well-documented neurotoxicity of fluoride. You may read the official complaint here.”
It would be arduous and redundant to explain why people are opposed to water fluoridation, so lets take a look at a lesser explored aspect of the issue: the actual history of it. Reading from the transcript of a documentary about Big Pharma:
“In 1945, Grand Rapids, Michigan became the first city in the world to put fluoride into its water supply. The effort was pushed by NIH dental hygiene man H. Trendley Dean, inspired by research produced by Frederick McKay in the early 20th Century. The US Surgeon General sponsored fluoridation.
While McKay’s research mostly focused on the harmful effects of fluoride, his observation that it made teeth harder while turning them brown was enough to encourage Dean. Fluoridation is a textbook case of “involuntary treatment.”
The original fluoride researcher McKay was trying to learn why certain US towns had residents with brown stained teeth. His research brought him to the corporation town of Bauxite, Arkansas, where the aluminum industry’s byproduct fluoride was contaminating water, turning teeth brown.
He observed that just 5 miles outside of the corporation town, teeth were better. The town Bauxite was owned by the Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA).
When word reached the ALCOA’s chief chemist H.V. Churchill in Pennsylvania, he furiously sought to refute claims that his industrial byproduct fluoride was harmful.”
It’s the most unbelievably uphill battle possible to continue shouting the truth into the darkness, when it may well be hopeless anyway, but it’s something we have to do.
Please share this with as many people as possible.
