water tapWhy are some states simply ignoring the latest studies, and passing new laws that will hurt your teeth and harm your health? Action Alert!

Water fluoridation was introduced to the United States in the 1940s as a way to use waste product from the manufacture of aluminum, a waste product that was expensive to dispose of and which was harming cattle and farmland. Since then, the federal government has taken the stance that the fluoridation of drinking water, which conveniently disposed of the waste, is vitally important to help prevent tooth decay; the CDC called it one of the ten great public health achievements of the 20th century. But the the latest scientific studies have finally made the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) change their tune on how much fluoride is safe.

The data indicates that dental fluorosis—damage to the teeth from fluoride, ranging from lacy white markings or spots on the enamel to staining and pitting of the tooth surface—happens when fluoride levels are too high. Water is only one of several sources of fluoride. Other common sources include dental products such as toothpaste and mouth rinses, prescription fluoride supplements, fluoride applied by dental professionals, and exposure through our food, which is often sprayed with fluoride-based pesticides.

Today the fluoride in your water mostly comes from the phosphate fertilizer industry—but it’s still toxic waste, containing other byproducts such as arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury. And two studies show that fluoride increases the accumulation of lead in bone, teeth, and other calcium-rich tissues, transporting heavy metals into areas of your body they normally would not be able to go—like your brain.

Another study revealed that prolonged, high intake of fluoride can increase the risk of brittle bones, fractures, and crippling bone abnormalities. Longtime readers may recall our 2008 article on the effects of fluoride on teeth and bones (harming kidney patients worst of all); we also noted that fluoride is a known neurotoxin, and can have detrimental effects on the thyroid, which could affect intelligence.

Moreover, fluoride can combine with other chemicals in the water to make them even more harmful. For example, when chloramines combine with the fluoride in water, they work together to extract lead from old plumbing systems, which leads to the accumulation of lead in the water supply.

EPA and HHS now recommend the level of fluoride in drinking water to be set “at the lowest end of the current optimal range”—that is, no more than 0.7 milligrams of fluoride per liter of water instead of the current recommended range which goes as high as 1.2 milligrams.

Despite studies so compelling that the federal government has started back-pedaling, the states of New Jersey and Vermont are attempting to mandate the fluoridation of water supply. Unfortunately, the New Jersey bill is very close to being passed. By contrast, Illinois and New Hampshire have introduced bills to prohibit fluoride in drinking water.

In New Jersey, both S959 in the Senate and A1811 in the Assembly are on red alert—they have been reported out of committee and are already on the floor, so they can be voted upon at any time. These bills mandate the fluoridation of water. At minimum, this is a freedom of choice issue—citizens should be able to choose whether they want to ingest fluoride or not. Write your legislators and ask them to oppose these bills—take action now!

In Vermont, H615 (currently in the Health Care Committee) contains many provisions to do with oral care—so we are specifically opposing section 108a, which mandates fluoridation of water. It requires that any municipality, government agency, or other entity that owns or controls a water system shall maintain fluoride in the water supply. Write your representative and request an amendment to strike out that part of the bill—take action now!

In New Hampshire: HB1529 would amend current law to say, “No fluoride, nor any chemical containing fluoride, shall be introduced into the public water supply,” as well as other specific provisions against the the use of herbicides within ten miles upgradient (that is, uphill) from a water intake of a domestic water supply. Write your representative and express your strong support for this bill—take action now!

In Illinois: HB5383 would do one thing: repeal the current fluoridation mandate. The bill is now in the Environmental Health Committee. Write your representative and express your strong support for this bill—take action now!

    90% of municipalities do not add Sodium Fluoride NaF, They add Fluorosilicic Acid H2sif6, a waste by-product of the Phosphorous Industry. Sold mostly by Mosaic, Inc in Florida. Only 3% of the cities in the US actually use the FDA approved Sodium Fluoride, that was until Fluorosilicic Acid was introduced as a much cheaper alternative. There are only 2 ways companies like Mosaic can dispose of this chemical. One is by paying $1.40 per gallon at a special Hazardous waste dump, or in our municipal drinking water….which we pay them for!. Try and find a study on the safety of Fluorosilicic Acid by consumption to humans.

    So either way it is all right to take toxic waste and put it in our water so we have better health?

    Ever notice the warning on the box of toothpaste? It’s not printed on the tube, but on the box you throw away…… “If more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poision Control Center immediately.”

    Fluoride also helps with keeping the population complacent. Hitler’s scientific minds brought that little tidbit over to the U.S. when they defected here.

    What About the Report From the National Research Council?

    Anti-fluoride activists are talking a lot about a report done by the National Research Council (NRC) a few years ago. Supposedly, this report contains “new” information that highlights the “dangers” of community water fluoridation.

    That would be news if it were true. However, they are misrepresenting both the report and some recommendations which are being made by a few of the report’s authors. The report actually deals with how much naturally-occurring fluoride should be allowed in water before steps are taken to remove it. The current limit is 4 times the amount that is used for community water fluoridation.

    What about recommendations to lower fluoride levels being made by “the report’s authors?”

    You notice that they usually say these recommendations are being made by “the report’s authors” and not that the report makes those recommendations. In an effort to be absolutely fair, the National Research Council invited 3 panelists who disagree with water fluoridation to participate in writing the report. These individuals had the opportunity to make their best anti-fluoride case to the other 9 panel members. Their recommendations were rejected by the majority of scientists on the panel. Since the report came out, these 3 individuals have made many presentations advancing their point of view. While nobody disagrees with their right to make these presentations, anti-fluoride zealots are trying to confuse their individual opinions with the findings of the NRC report by saying that “authors of the NRC report reject fluoride” even though the report says no such thing.

    The NRC report was actually requested by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to help them in their periodic review of the safety of fluoride. To date, the EPA has not changed its regulations with respect to the amount of naturally-occurring fluoride in groundwater. They have made absolutely no recommendations regarding changes in community water fluoridation.

    Here is what the CDC – Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (a branch of the U.S. Public Health Service) – has to say about the NRC report: “The findings of the NRC report are consistent with the CDC’s assessment that water is safe and healthy at the levels used for water fluoridation (0.7-1.2 mg/L). CDC reviews the latest scientific literature on an ongoing basis and maintains an active national community water fluoridation quality…

      The first known instances of deliberate water fluoridation were in Nazi Germany ghettos and prison camps. Sodium fluoride was added to the human inmates’ water to sterilize them and to cause them to become docile, subservient subjects willing to comply with orders. Charles Perkins, a research chemist, wrote a letter to the Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research in 1954 about fluoride. In it, he stated that repeated ingestion of low doses of fluoride over a long period of time will destroy the areas of the human brain that trigger resistance to tyranny and unlawful coercion and control.” Fluoride Causing Premature Births

      “Fluoridation is the greatest case of scientific fraud of this century, if not of all time.” Robert Carton, PhD, EPA scientist

      “Our members’ review of the body of evidence over the last eleven years, including animal and human epidemiology studies, indicate a causal link between fluoride/fluoridation and cancer, genetic damage, neurological impairment and bone pathology. Of particular concern are recent epidemiology studies linking fluoride exposure to lowered IQ in children.” J. William Hirzy PhD, EPA scientist

      “A Harvard thesis has shown a connection between water fluoridation and a 700% increase in osteosarcoma in young men if they are exposed to fluoridated water during their 6th to 8th years.” Doctor Paul Connett

      “There is no disease that develops from a shortage of fluoride.” Doctor Paul Connett The Case Against Fluoride, Note fluoride contrary to popular opinion has NO function in the human body it is ingested like lead as an impurity and is rejected as best your body is able.

      Warning: Fluoridation of Water is Damaging Your Bones, Brain, Kidneys, and Thyroid

      “There was no significant difference in the decay rates of 39,000 fluoridated, partially fluoridated and non-fluoridated children, ages 5 to 17, surveyed in 84 cities.” National Institute of Dental Research 1987

      The Pasteur Institute and the Nobel Institute have already caused fluoride to be banned in their countries (France and Sweden). In fact, most developed countries have banned, stopped or rejected fluoridation. Note Norway, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Austria and the Netherlands also ban fluoride from their drinking water.

    • Kit says:

      The CDC must be just so bewildered why Japan and 97% of the western European population — let’s just call it “Most Developed Countries” — do not consume fluoridated water, having rejected, banned, or stopped fluoridation due to environmental, health, legal, or ethical concerns.

      So WHO is still dumb enough to drink fluoride?

      In the U.S., about 70% of public water supplies are fluoridated. (

      Oh! It’s us.

      No wonder, though, check this out:

      “As of February 2015 …43 of the 50 human studies have found that elevated fluoride exposure is associated with reduced IQ. …The human studies, which are based on IQ examinations of over 11,000 children, provide compelling evidence that fluoride exposure during the early years of life can damage a child’s developing brain.”

      This article then breaks my heart with its reminder that “…before any of the studies finding reduced IQ in humans were known in the western world, a team of U.S. scientists at a Harvard-affiliated research center predicted that fluoride might be capable of reducing IQ in humans. (Mullenix 1995)”

      [In this forum Pam has also posted this name: Phyllis Mullenix, PhD, Founder of Toxicology Department, Forsyth (dental) Research Institute, Harvard Medical School. Check Dr. Mullenix’s interview out on the above-referenced site and on YouTube, too.]

      Could this be what those “crazy radicals” mean when they say our government is “dumbing us down”?

      Just as an aside about the futility of quoting or relying on the CDC, it also supports the killer vaccine Gardasil, and, btw, it’s billion $ industry, despite no real proof of its claims.

    Fluoridation: A Triumph of Science Over Propaganda
    Community water fluoridation (herein called simply “fluoridation” or “water fluoridation”) is the precise adjustment of the concentration of the essential trace element fluoride in the public water supply to protect teeth and bones. In 1945 Grand Rapids, Michigan, became the first city in the world to fluoridate its public water supply. Since then, communities throughout the United States have adopted the practice. Water fluoridation is similar to food fortification and enrichment, which encompass the addition of iodine to table salt; vitamins to fruit drinks, milk, and various kinds of pasta; and vitamins and minerals to breakfast cereals and bread. Water fluoridation is the perfect public health intervention, particularly for children. Whole towns are protected in a nondiscriminatory manner. The protection is continuous and effortless to obtain. The fluoride in the water is incorporated into the enamel of developing teeth in children below the age of 16, making their teeth more resistant to decay for a lifetime. It also promotes remineralization of early decay in adults and interferes with the life cycle of decay-causing bacteria present in the mouths of both children and adults.
    Water fluoridation is remarkably simple to implement and mimics nature: Virtually all sources of drinking water in North America naturally contain some fluoride. Fluoride levels in the United States are adjusted to about one part fluoride per million parts of water — a minute concentration.

    The Antifluoridationists
    While only a minuscule percentage of Americans opposes water fluoridation, an extremist minority urges avoidance of water fluoridation. These antifluoridationists or flurophobics falsely allege that it is unsafe, ineffective, or costly. They assert that exposure to fluoridated water increases the risk of contracting AIDS, cancer, Down’s syndrome, heart disease, kidney disease, osteoporosis, and many other health problems in children and the general popluation. But the overwhelming weight of scientific evidence confirms water fluoridation’s safety and effectiveness, and hundreds of peer-reviewed studies on fluoride have discredited antifluoridation propaganda. Almost at the moment Grand Rapids became the first community to adjust the fluoride content of its water supply, small groups of ill-informed people began objecting to water fluoridation. Early opponents included chiropractors, health food advocates,…


    • Pam says:

      I would refer you to the scientific works of Dr. Phyllis Mullenix, PhD. I do not believe you will continue the same lines of thought after having read this interview. At the very least I should hope it would give you pause to reconsider.


    • Kit says:

      Addressing the error in your opening statement re The Antifluoridationists, “While only a minuscule percentage of Americans opposes water fluoridation,” a fast Google search will instantly reveal you as wildly, insanely misinformed.

      That search will show city after city, county after county have resisted fluoridation, or are trying to, masses of Americans actively resisting and defeating fluoridation, some since it was first forced on us.

      As others have noted in this forum, most of the developed world, in fact, has either rejected fluoridation, or is in the process of removing it when it is naturally-occurring in the water supply.

      Here’s a great example of the folly of defending fluoridation:

      900,000 people receive water from Portland, Oregon’s water supply. The citizenry beat four fluoridation proposals, beginning in 1956. In 2013, by a landslide victory of 61%-39%, citizenry again defeated fluoridation. Somehow the ordinance for fluoridation was enacted anyway. The “somehow” turned out to be dirty dealings, secret meetings with pro-fluoridation lobbyists, and a violation of city ordinance. The citizenry fought back, the ordinance overturned; and fluoridation did not occur.

      Another example is a southeast Pennsylvania county water supplier serving 385,000 people, which supplier, at customers’ requests, stopped buying Philadelphia’s fluoridated water and found another source that did not fluoridate.

      Clearly not only are citizens defeating fluoridation and misinformed-to-corrupt dealings to force it, but businesses are opting to satisfy the public opinion and ignore the lobbyists.

      Now, this, THIS makes me proud to be an American.


  6. Lou says:

    The solution to our “fluoride problem” starts IMO with the realization that it is primarily a POLITICAL problem. Yes it was sold as a “cavity solution”; yes the economic justification was sold as a way to dispose of toxic waste. These were subterfuges and straw men.

    The REAL reason fluoride was put in our water and will remain in our water is because it is a depopulation et al means DESIRED by the people who own HHS. Fluoride has thousands of ways to subtly steal years from your otherwise expected life span. When you or a loved one dies the role fluoride had in the death will not be apparent; this has been proven over the 50 years this poison has been PUT in our water.

    This graph, which HHS completely understands, is the beginning and end of the health question.

    As for the economic reason, do you know many communities are now IMPORTING their toxic fluoride waste products from CHINA? Yes because Chinese toxic fluoride waste is cheaper than local USA toxic fluoride waste.

    Once we understand the fluoride is in our water to slow kill us we may be able to mount an effective response.


    • Kit says:

      Importing toxic waste? EGADS. Thank you for this information, horrible as it is.

      Thanks for everything you’ve posted.


  7. Rashele says:

    Our children are being overfluorinated. There is fluoride in toothpaste and many other areas of consumption these days. To add fluoride to the water would be the same as drugging our society and drugging our children. As well as taking away civil rights to choose, and spending civilian tax dollars on something only the politicians want. So much for the politians promising to represent us when elected. This is not what people want.
    A posting I found discusses how fluoridation got started and that it has suppressive affects on the thyroid hormone.
    An unexpectedly pleasant surprise was the authors’ uncompromising criticism of water fluoridation. It takes a bold medical author (and publisher, for that matter), to so solidly slam fluoride, which though “currently touted as harmless enough to be put into the water supply, has been used in the past as a powerful medication to slow down overactive thyroid activity.” A citation to the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology backs up this most interesting statement. The authors clearly state that water fluoridation is a significant cause of low thyroid illness in millions of people. They also mention the curious origins of water fluoridation, first employed in Nazi concentration camps to allegedly “force inmates into submission.” (p 173) The authors’ unequivocal conclusion: “Do not allow your children to be treated with fluoride.” (p 175)

    This is just another method….and part of the depopulation agenda, compliments of the United States Government. it is the same premise as GMO’s and vaccines.

  9. Katherine says:

    For me, the CDC, FDA, and USDA are NOT standards. They have been allowing the addition of poisonous substances into food and the brainwashing of citizens for decades.

    I can’t believe that dentists are so insistent when it comes to fluoride treatment. I can’t believe I have been swallowing this neurotoxin obediently for years!

    Keep on educating us, ANH!!


    • Lou says:

      Dentists had better come up to speed quickly as they have surpassed Pediatricians as the most “clueless” of the Medical/Dental Industry.

      o Silver fillings contain 50% mercury
      o Dental X-rays irradiate the thyroid and head
      o Fluoride is a DEADLY poison which has NO function in a healthy human body
      o Root Canals create a deadly toxin creating machine in your mouth. If you die of any cancer the odds are overwhelming you have had a root canal.

      “There is a common dental procedure that nearly every dentist will tell you is completely safe, despite the fact that scientists have been warning of its dangers for more than 100 years. Every day in the United States alone, 41,000 of these dental procedures are performed on patients who believe they are safely and permanently fixing their problem. What is this dental procedure? The root canal. More than 25 million root canals are performed every year in this country. Root-canaled teeth are essentially “dead” teeth that can become silent incubators for highly toxic anaerobic bacteria that can, under certain conditions, make their way into your bloodstream to cause a number of serious medical conditions—many not appearing until decades later. Most of these toxic teeth feel and look fine for many years, which make their role in systemic disease even harder to trace back.” 97% of Terminal Cancer Patients Previously Had This Dental Procedure


  10. Julie Haddad says:

    I say thank you for your time and dedication to this critical cause. We are very pleased to see the bill written, sponsored, and being considered in the Enviromental Health Committee. Not only are we overdosed from our drinking water, flouride is present in any of our food supply packaged with a city water source. I am with hopes they will take head to this information brought forward and repeal the mandate so we can get on with removing it from all of our water sources. Our representatives are not exempt from ingesting this awful toxin, so there families are at risk as well. I would encourage anyone that is interested in educating themselves to read Dr. Dean Murphy’s book. “How Fluoride is Poisoning You” He is an amazing well respected doctor, who has spent many years of his life unfolding the inhumane effects of fluoride on our population.


    • Dez says:

      I take a lot of vitamin C and other vitamins and supplements. One of the ’side effects’ of vitamins is that they aid the immune system in removing heavy metals, poisons, and toxins from our body and storing them in the liver. Caffeine trigers the liver to dump the poisons in the stool and are eliminated from our body resulting in an almost black stool. A normal stool is brown. I live in oregon and my well water is very pure. The last two months I have been in Orange County California where the water is fluoridated. Every stool has been ‘black’ which is not normal for me. Do the research. All this information is available on the internet.


    • netace says:

      Also read Dr David Brownstein’s books on “Overcoming Thyroid Disorders” and “Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It”. Fluorine/fluoride and Bromine are 2 of the world’s most common toxins, next to mercury and lead, and are responsible for much sickness. Everyone needs to put a stop to fluoridation, as well as the use of bromine, in all areas of our lives. In the meantime, take iodine supplements daily to help your body rid itself of the fluoride and bromide poisons.

    Can you tell me if California pass any laws against the use of fluoride in the water and any other products like toothpaste


    • Seth says:

      No. To date no such law has ever been passed and all court challenges to remove Flouride have failed.


  12. Thank you so much for all you do to improve the Human condition. Thanx to groups like yours & each individual within them, we WILL eventually win this Information War against the elitist, corporatist bankster cartel; thus crushing their agenda for a “new world order” (i.e., a global dictatorship where Freedom becomes an unknown concept to the People).
    The People are Awakening exponentially to the insidious machinations of this globalist beast. Their Machiavellian-Hegelian dialectic methods are faiiling more & more.
    Resistance is victory….
    Our success is inevitable.
    Upon reaching a critical mass of well-informed. compassionate & motivated individuals- including those INSIDE the system, most importantly- we WILL prosecute these guilty conspirators & ALL their willing puppets for their myriad crimes against Humanity!!!

  18. Audrey Adams says:

    Don’t make the mistake of thinking that just because you don’t drink fluoridated water that you’re “safe”. You are not—there are countless other sources from food and beverages now that are very concerningly highl. Also, don’t assume that your filter protects you—standard household carbon filters like Britta or PUR don’t remove any of the fluoride. And finally, don’t discount exposure from your shower—depending on the other food, drinks and products you use, and depending on how you shower (time, temperature, water pressure), you could get as much as a third to a half of your toxic fluoride exposure each morning as you attempt to get clean.


  19. Michael Slater says:

    Please do not require the public waters to be fluorinated.


  20. Greetings.

    Good work with information and much appreciated.I will pass this on to the community we have served for 33 years (CN Certified Nutritionists).

    Note about Illinois. In the near future the American Dietetic Association ADA (new name, American Nutrition and Dietetic Association (ANDA) will be applying to increase their power in Illinois where their home office is located. I am not aware if they have submitted there bill as yet.

    As we all know since 1985 the ADA/ANDA has mounted efforts to get laws passed in every state basically giving them an exclusive in the dissemination of nutritional information and when possible even have the right to decide who they will accept as competitors.

    With funding from supporters like Coca Cola and Burger King they are able to maintain their extensive efforts, state by state.

    So, with the 4,000,000 or so professionals in the nutrition, health and life enhancement professions who would be forced out of their professions, some practicing disciplines involving nutrition that are thousands of years old it is important to take action to defeat the ADA/ANDA ACTS in their home state

    I plan to mount an “All Hands” effort to stop the ADA./ANDA from further expansion. Letting elected officials know that thousands of “Illinonians” and their friends outside of IL that the ADA/ANDA gets the message that they have done enough damage and so the bill they have prepared for 2012 doesn’t even get out of Committee.

    I am happy to keep you posted .

  26. Geraldine V says:

    35 years ago people in Europe were demonstrating against Fluoridizing their water supply because THEY did not consider it safe. When my Pediatrician in NJ suggested I give my children vitamins that included Fluoride because unlike NYC where it was in the water supply, that was not the case in NJ, I declined. He was shocked and predicted that my children would have poor teeth as a result and suffer much decay. My children are in their 30s and neither of them have EVER suffered a cavity. It has been known by the scientific community that Fluoride is harmful to the human body. It is criminal and it might be useful to do some research as to WHO pushed this use of Fluoride and put it in the water supply so that it caused so many people to suffer cancer and other deadly illnesses. Follow the money might be a good place to start.

  29. Doug Cragoe says:

    The government has not reversed it’s stance on fluoridation. No government agency at the state or federal level has done that.

    I would like to commend you on your excellent reporting because now we know about the mandatory fluoridation law in the Vermont legislature. It will be vigorously opposed .

    The New Hampshire bill has been completely rewritten. It no longer calls for stopping fluoridation, but it merely requires a warning on water bills regarding the fluorosis risk from infant formula made with fluoridated water. Many people in public health do not want parents informed about this risk. Last year in the New Hampshire legislature a similar bill required a warning on water bills was shot down primarily for that reason.


  30. Dr Sickels says:

    The evidence seems to say that topical use of fluoride (in toothpaste, dentists’ offices) may help reduce cavities, but that systemic use (in water) doesn’t.
    You’d think that with all the budgetary constraints these days, municipalities would be eager to drop their water fluoridation and save that money for something else.


  31. Greg Wilson says:

    Dunedin, FL has recently approved the purchase of a new fluoride tank to continue adding fluoride to the city’s water supply. The purchase is two years away.

  35. Lynn Kocal says:

    Just an update on Illinois’ mandated fluoridation. HB 5383 releases the mandate for public safety. The bill doesn’t prohibit the addition of fluoride, just makes it optional. It was entered as a bill because of an unfunded mandate. It just moved out of the rules committee to the environmental committee.

    Say a prayer for Illinoisans that we no longer have to have this poison in our water.

      A sound approach to making sure your body is fluoride free IMO is to DISPLACE the fluoride which may exist and does not belong n your body with IODINE which does belong in your body. This is almost never done because we as a nation are chronically low in iodine.

      A way to REMOVE Fluoride from your Body

      “Iodine therapy helps the body eliminate fluoride, bromine, lead, cadmium, arsenic, aluminum and mercury. Could this substitution of bromine for iodine have been carried out to increase diseases and thus create more need for pharmaceutical drugs?” Doctor James Howenstine, MD

      “Dr. Abrahams thinks that the correct quantity of iodine needed to maintain sufficient amounts of iodine in the body is 13 mg. daily. This is 100 times more than the government recognized RDA for iodine.” Doctor James Howenstine, MD

      “Iodine intake immediately increases the excretion of bromide, fluoride, and some heavy metals including mercury and lead. Bromide and fluoride are not removed by any other chelator or detoxifying technique.” Iodine and Chelation , Note iodine should also chelate chlorine

      Most of us are deficient in iodine. This deficiency allows the fluoride to displace what little iodine we have. Repleting your iodine along with CEASING fluoride ingestion, can drive out the fluoride out of your body. See (iodine Protocol), To replete your iodine you will HAVE to start thinking of milligrams of iodine NOT micrograms.


  41. Nothing new here, the Government has known for years about the toxic properties of Fluoride, and has allowed it’s use anyway. It is all about money, not your health, or well being.
