Poisoned Horses

    To Whom It May Concern:
    I have been a city councilwoman in a small (under 30,000 population for the county) Northern California town (Crescent City, part of Del Norte County) for the past 4 years. On November 6th, after 44 years of water fluoridation, a moratorium was voted in to stop fluoridation until our supplier can provide the following: proof that their product is safe to all consumers along with toxicological reports and a listing of contaminants. They can’t and they won’t. How do I know? I sent them and every other supplier in the US, Canada and Mexico letters via certified mail last year and not one responded. Also, several months ago, I called up UNIVAR (formerly Basic Chemical Solutions, the supplier of HFSA/fluoride to our city water department) and asked the same questions. They continued to be non-responsive. Even the NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) has said during Congressional hearings in 2000 that they do not run all the tests required.

    This much we know. Infants should not be drinking formula mixed with fluoridated water. Our Centers of Disease Control (CDC) as well as the American Dental Association (ADA) both came out and made this known several years ago. The reason is because it may cause dental fluorosis, the first visible sign of fluoride poisoning. 41% of our nation’s teens are over-fluoridated suffering with dental fluorosis, the first visible sign of fluoride poisoning. I refer to the National Research Council 2006 report. And to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) statement issued in 2011, which suggested that the parts per million (ppm) be reduced to .7 ppm.

    Also last year, we had a 17 yr old boy die of osteosarcoma, linked to HFSA (Hydrofluosilicic acid) fluoride. This is a very rare form of bone cancer. We have had hundreds and hundreds of our people suffer from thyroid disease, diabetes kidney disease, seizures, seniors with bone fracture, heart disease and more…. all linked to prolonged ingestion of HFSA/fluoride.
    State by State, our governors are looking at issuing warnings to parents about the hazards of HFSA/fluoride. Infants drinking formula mixed with fluoridated water get 200 times more fluoride than from mother’s milk. HFSA is a neurotoxin and passes the blood brain barrier. Harvard released their study in July ’12 showing as much as a 10 point drop in IQ due to HFSA/fluoride with increased mental retardation.

    If you look at the American Cancer Society’s (ACS) web statistics, you’ll see that Del Norte County was 34th in the nation for cancer, while Brookings, Oregon, Curry County (another small seaside town just 30 minutes north of us) was 765th in the nation. Their town has never fluoridated. We have 1.3 deaths per week due to cancer, and the local ACS chapter has predicted twice as many cases this coming year.

    In addition, the cavities rate in our children is 70%, with high obesity, low test scores and high teen pregnancy rates. Girls enter puberty 2-3 years earlier in fluoridated areas vs non-fluoridated areas.

    The CDC and ADA also came out that ingesting fluoride is not effective. Instead they recommended topical application.
    The fact that your government spends millions of dollars adding this toxic industrial waste product is a waste of precious resources which could be better spent.

    Finally, my own personal opinion is that I believe it is absurd for any medication to be put into the drinking/bathing water. If your water departments are anything like ours, then they are dispensing a medication (an unapproved drug) without taking health histories, without monitoring the dose, or giving out a listing of side effects. All in all, practicing medicine without a license, putting an illegal substance into the drinking water and slowly poisoning your people.

    I also believe that if you follow the money you will discover, as I did, that fluoridating the water has nothing to do with helping children’s teeth and it never has. It’s all about finding a place to dump toxic industrial waste and saving hundreds of millions of dollars by not having to dump their product legally.

    I hope your people are quick to research the facts and not rely on the lies, propaganda, rhetoric, flawed and fraudulent tests of the pro-fluoride side.

    We’re talking about a toxic industrial waste chemical under the guise of treating humans, A practice I’m sure will be considered one of the biggest frauds perpetrated during the 20th and 21st centuries.
