Recording of presentations

Dear Mr. Stephanson and City Council Members:

The CDC, EPA, and Surgeon General say fluoridation is effective and does no harm. Three fluoride defenders last week endorsed fluoridation, but they offered no evidence.

Endorsements prove nothing. Scientific and medical journal articles are proof. And admissions of harm made by the CDC, ADA, and AMA are evidence. I am delivering the evidence to you today.

The CDC, the main promoter of fluoridation, admits the following:

[L]laboratory and epidemiologic research suggests that fluoride prevents dental caries predominately after eruption of the tooth into the mouth, and its actions primarily are topical for both adults and children

http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm4841a1.htm

If you want to avoid sunburn, would you eat your sunscreen? No? Then why would you drink your fluoride?

So why do we fluoridate? There are two reasons. First is the myth that it is good for teeth. Second is to offload millions of gallons of toxic waste. The EPA in 1983 admitted this.

http://fluoride-class-action.com/wp-content/uploads/rebecca-hanmer-epa-silicofluorides-the-sollution-for-fluoridation-and-pollution-3-30-83.pdf

The fluoride used by Everett is the cheap, commercial, toxic waste silicofluoride that comes from phosphate fertilizer production. Tom Thetford admitted that Everett uses silicofluoride.

http://fluoride-class-action.com/wp-content/uploads/everett-utilities-tom-thetford-everett-does-not-have-a-full-assay-of-scrubber-liquor-7-2-9-Refusal-to-Provide-Full-Assay-7-2-9.doc

Everett let out a bid for 500 tons of silicofluoride per year.

http://fluoride-class-action.com/wp-content/uploads/everett-fluoride-specifications-20071.doc

NSF explains that silicofluorides come primarily from phosphate fertilizer production.

http://fluoride-class-action.com/wp-content/uploads/NSF-fact-sheet-on-fluoride-2008.pdf

George Glasser explains that the phosphate ore contains heavy metals, lead, arsenic, fluoride, uranium, polonium, and pretty much every element on the periodic table.

http://fluoride-class-action.com/wp-content/uploads/george-glasser-fluoride-and-the-phosphate-connection.pdf

CDC and EPA in January proposed to lower fluoride added to water to .7 ppm, a 30% reduction. They did this because of the Beltran-Aguilar study, which showed that 41% of kids 12-15 had some level of fluorosis. And 8% had moderate fluorosis (brown spots) and 3% had severe fluorosis (brown spots with pitting).

http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/databriefs/db53.pdf

There are around 15 million kids age 12-15 in the US. So 6 million would have some level of fluoridation, 1.2 million would have moderate fluorosis, and 450,000 would have severe fluorosis.

The monetary damages for veneers for these kids would be around $50,000 over the course of their lives.

This is a perfect class action or mass toxic tort case. CDC admits liability and admits the number of kids are permanently marred.

CDC wants to lower fluoride added by 30%. That would reduce the percentage of kids with all levels of fluorosis from 41% to 28%. It would lower the percentage with moderate fluorosis from 8.6% to 6.0%, and the percentage with severe fluorosis from 3.6% to 2.5%.

Why are any levels of fluorosis tolerated? Water districts could make fluoridated salt available for those who insist on consuming their fluoride or just advise people to swallow their toothpaste. Why impose fluoride on everyone?

Certain populations are more susceptible to harm from silicofluorides – kidney patients, diabetics, those who drink more water than average, and infants. Infants drink 2.5 to 4.0 times as much fluids as adults. Mother’s milk is best because it is fluoride free. But when babies are on formula mixed with fluoridated water, they are harmed.

The American Dental Association recommends that formula not be made using fluoridated tap water on a regular basis.

http://fluoride-class-action.com/wp-content/uploads/american-dental-association-jada-ada-org-infants-formula-and-fluoride-1-2007.pdf

CDC makes the same recommendation.

http://www.cdc.gov/fluoridation/safety/infant_formula.htm

Why do ADA and CDC recommend that infants keep fluoride consumption low? They admit that it causes fluorosis.

But there are other problems with fluoridation. Silicofluorides contain lead and leach lead out of brass pipes that contain lead. Today’s brass pipes are 8.0% lead. Before 1986 brass pipes were 30% lead or more.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brass

http://fluoride-class-action.com/hhs/comments-re-lead

Silicofluorides are especially bad at leaching lead out of brass pipes.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11233755?dopt=Abstract

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0161813X07000459

The problem is especially bad when the water is soft, meaning it contains little calcium, which is true of Everett’s snow melt water.

http://www.cdc.gov/print.do?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cdc.gov%2Ffluoridation%2Ffact_sheets%2Fengineering%2Fcorrosion.htm

It was a big surprise when it was discovered that tap water in Seattle schools was up to 1,600 ppb lead.

http://fluoride-class-action.com/wp-content/uploads/Seattle-schools-lead-woes-years-in-the-making-8-9-2004-1151261.php_.htm

http://www.seattlepi.com/lifestyle/health/article/Lead-tainted-water-in-Seattle-schools-stuns-1148516.php

http://www.seattlepi.com/default/article/Elevated-lead-levels-found-in-35-Seattle-schools-1219258.php

The MCL maximum contaminant level for lead is 20 ppb, and the MCLG maximum contaminant level goal is zero.

NSF says we should not worry because the lead level in the raw scrubber liquor is low, sometimes only .6 ppb, sometimes 1.6 ppb.

http://fluoride-class-action.com/wp-content/uploads/nsf-fact-sheet-fluoride-20001.pdf

The bigger problem is the lead that the fluoride leaches out of old pipes.

Federal law requires Everett to send out lead notices. Everett and all other cities ignore this law. In tort law that is called a per se violation, which makes it easier to prove negligence.

http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/42/usc_sec_42_00000300—g006-.html

What are the damages? Lead penetrates every cell in the body and is highly toxic. One of the effects of lead is to lower intelligence.        There are now 24 well structured scientific studies which show that fluoride levels in water correlate with lower IQ. That sounds like a good class action suit. We are dumbing down our own children and grandchildren.

http://www.fluoridealert.org/iq.studies.html

Finally I want to talk about the biggest scam of all, the way Everett is tricked into slowly poisoning its own people.

Washington law allows fluoridation only if the fluoride is NSF approved under the NSF 60 standard. WAC 246-290-220(3).

http://apps.leg.wa.gov/wac/default.aspx?cite=246-290-220

NSF is a trade organization. I will discuss in greater detail the scam that NSF is conducting. NSF states repeatedly in its 2008 NSF Fact Sheet on Fluoridation Chemicals[28]:

The NSF Joint Committee … consists of … product manufacturing representatives. … Standard 60 … requires a toxicology review to determine that the product is safe at its maximum use level and to evaluate potential contaminations in the product. … A toxicology evaluation of test results is required to determine if any contaminant concentrations have the potential to cause adverse human health effects. … NSF also requires annual testing and toxicological evaluation …. The NSF standard requires … toxicological evaluation.

http://fluoride-class-action.com/wp-content/uploads/NSF-fact-sheet-on-fluoride-2008.pdf

In the NSF 60 book itself NSF says the same thing.

http://fluoride-class-action.com/wp-content/uploads/NSF-60-excerpts2.pdf

However, NSF does not receive toxicological studies from the fertilizer companies, nor does it do toxicological studies itself. See an email which NSF sent me, telling me to ask the EPA for toxicological studies.

http://fluoride-class-action.com/wp-content/uploads/Blake-Stark-No-Assay-of-raw-Scrubber-Liquor.pdf

When Stan Hazan was put under oath, he admitted that NSF was not following its own rules and that there were no toxicological studies.

http://fluoride-class-action.com/wp-content/uploads/appendix-e-stan-hazen-deposition1.pdf

That is only a small part of the evidence. It shows that Everett has been defrauded, lied to, scammed, and sold a bill of goods.

The law requiring that fluoride be NSF 60 is not being followed by NSF. That alone requires that a one year moratorium be put on fluoridation until this matter can be sorted out.

Everett should be very concerned about legal liability, and the best way to reduce or eliminate liability is immediately to put a moratorium on fluoridation.

For more detail on these issues read the general overview sent to HHS at http://fluoride-class-action.com/hhs/report-card-for-hhs.
