Durham County is holding a hearing for citizens to air concerns about all matters having to do with the “Public Health.”  Here is the official public release.

Thursday, September 13 at 5:00pm in EDT at 414 E. Main Street, Durham, NC 27701

Since December 2011, I have been trying to convince the city council and members of the health department that Fluoride is a dangerous chemical, NOT a dental health benefit we should be thanking them for.  The movement has been slowly gaining steam all year and now we are reaching critical mass!

Tomorrow I will be attending the hearing to present evidence that Fluoride should be stopped IMMEDIATELY and I am happy to report that I will be joined by WTVD Channel 11 and their camera crew.  They will be there to capture footage specifically for a fall report on this very issue! So if you can, please join us to express your concern and demand a change in policy!

In addition to the announcement, I have included two clips from my past visits to the city council where NC Department of Health and Human Service’s own Kevin Buckholtz was brought forward to defend fluoridation of our public drinking water.   In his rebuttal, he actually admitted that

  1. Hydrofluosilicic acid can leach lead from piping systems and enter the bloodstream of those who drink the water – causing behavioral issues, learning disabilities, and negatively affecting IQ
  2. His own 11 year old daughter has mild dental fluorosis, the negative side effect to fluoridating our drinking water.

Even those who are supposed to be looking out for our best interest admit the negative side effects of Fluoridation – incredible!

NEW YORK, July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Harvard University researchers’ review of fluoride/brain studies concludes “our results support the possibility of adverse effects of fluoride exposures on children’s neurodevelopment.” It was published online July 20 in Environmental Health Perspectives, a US National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences’ journal (1), reports the NYS Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF)

“The children in high fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ than those who lived in low fluoride areas,” write Choi et al.

Further, the EPA says fluoride is a chemical “with substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity.”

Fluoride (fluosilicic acid) is added to US water supplies at approximately 1 part per million attempting to reduce tooth decay.

Water was the only fluoride source in the studies reviewed and was based on high water fluoride levels. However, they point out research by Ding (2011) suggested that low water fluoride levels had significant negative associations with children’s intelligence.

Choi et al. write, “Although fluoride may cause neurotoxicity in animal models and acute fluoride poisoning causes neurotoxicity in adults, very little is known of its effects on children’s neurodevelopment. They recommend more brain/fluoride research on children and at individual-level doses.

“It’s senseless to keep subjecting our children to this ongoing fluoridation experiment to satisfy the political agenda of special-interest groups,” says attorney Paul Beeber, NYSCOF President.  “Even if fluoridation reduced cavities, is tooth health more important than brain health? It’s time to put politics aside and stop artificial fluoridation everywhere,” says Beeber.

After reviewing fluoride toxicological data, the NRC reported in 2006, “It’s apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain.”

Choi’s team writes, “Fluoride readily crosses the placenta. Fluoride exposure to the developing brain, which is much more susceptible to injury caused by toxicants than is the mature brain, may possibly lead to damage of a permanent nature.”

Fluoride accumulates in the body. Even low doses are harmful to babies, the thyroid, kidney patients and heavy water-drinkers. There are even doubts about fluoridation’s effectiveness (2). New York City Legislation is pending to stop fluoridation. Many communities have already stopped.

Infant formula when mixed with fluoridated water delivers 100-200 times more fluoride than breastmilk. (3)
