Warning: EPA Fighting to Keep Water Fluoridated
By The Daily Bell Staff - June 13, 2017

Why does it seem like the one time you want the government to do something, they aren’t interested?

Supposedly, the EPA exists in part to protect public health. So you might think they would want to get harmful chemicals out of the drinking supply, or at very least, prevent them from being added.

Yet despite mountains of evidence that fluoride is not only ineffective at preventing tooth decay when ingested but actually harmful to the human body, the EPA is still fighting to propagate public poisoning.

A lawsuit has been filed against the EPA by various watchdog organizations dedicated to removing fluoride from public drinking supplies. They want to force the EPA to ban the intentional addition of fluoride into drinking water supplies.

The lawsuit lays out all the evidence amassed about the harmful effects of fluoride, as well as the evidence that it is not necessary or beneficial to be ingested. It states that it has been disproven that fluoride helps prevent tooth decay when ingested, as thought when it was first introduced into drinking supplies in 1940.

It is now universally recognized by dental researchers, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Oral Health Division, that fluoride’s primary benefit comes from topical application. Fluoride does not need to be swallowed, therefore, to prevent tooth decay.

Whereas fluoride’s benefit to teeth comes from topical contact, fluoride’s health risks come from ingestion.

From there the lawsuit establishes the evidence that drinking fluoridated water is causing fluorosis, the discoloration of teeth.

And then, of course, it gets to the evidence that fluoride is a neurotoxin which causes significant harm to the brain, especially in children. They cite 300 studies which established the harm done by fluoride, 50 of which specifically found that exposure impairs cognitive functions. Fluoride exposure can cause a measurable drop in IQ and is considered among lead and mercury as a chemical toxic to the brain.

The lawsuit seeks to establish a court ruling on the toxicology of fluoride in order to meet current standards for an EPA ban on neurotoxins in drinking water. Based on a preponderance of the evidence, the suit claims fluoride should fit into the category of what the EPA bans in order to protect public health.

Yet so far, government agencies have been reluctant to believe the numerous studies about the harm of fluoride. This case lays it all out plain as day for the eyes to see.

The ruling the organizations hope for is that they have presented enough evidence that the EPA must ban artificial fluoridation of water because of the unreasonable risk of injury to public health.

It is aggravating that the EPA has no problem being heavy handed on other issues like water run-off from farms, but won’t ban a chemical addition that is clearly not necessary, and very likely very dangerous.

Many believe fluoride is added to water in an intentional effort to dumb down the population and make them more docile and malleable for the government. But you don’t even have to believe that to agree that fluoridating water should be banned. Even without nefarious reasons for adding fluoride to water, the practice shows how hard it is to stop an ill-conceived government program once in motion.

For almost 80 years fluoride has been added to public drinking supplies based on science which is now disproven. It is the faulty belief that the government should always be doing something to “help” people that actually puts the public in harm’s way.

Not only has the government been poisoning the public for years, but they now fight tooth and nail to keep it that way.  Let’s hope the courts make a rare ruling against their colleagues in another government department.

    Amen. However, this petition is very narrow in its scope. It is limited to neurotoxicity and TSCA authority. Moreover, the EPA denial was based on rule making legalese. For many more arguments concerning the risks of fluoridation with scientific citations attached, see the following:

    When American history is analyzed from the remnants of that same, defunct government, people will swear that the US was a monarchy ruled by the devil himself. So wicked is America.

    Among honest people, water fluoridation science is settled. It’s a toxic poison added to drinking water many claim profitably solves the toxic waste disposal problems of mining and smelting industries that treat public water supplies as a free sewer. Not much more to know, other than geting clear that US Gov is mostly a payoff racket posing as public service. As with so much other injustice, knowing doesn’t count for much anymore. Join up, get into action with whatever means at one’s disposal. Ignorance was once bliss; it ain’t anymore.

      The EPA is an extremely powerful and un-policed entity by which government can carry out much abuse among “citizens” nearly without being noticed. Property theft is probably the least harmful; issues such as poisonings via fluoride, pesticides, herbicides and genetic engineering are among the most insidious. The “US Gov is mostly a payoff racket posing as a public service.” Is a major aspect of the EPA’s existence…followed closely by the FDA, CDC and others. Of course, along with the payoff racket, ridding the country of “surplus population” becomes an added benefit to globalists fostering the reduction of human population of the Earth.

      Environmentalists who gasp in horror at the possible demise of the EPA are woefully ignorant.

    • Yep agree and it won’t be long before it all comes crashing down. In the meantime we are preparing:

    Ever since the latter part of the 1800s, coinciding with the start of the progressive religion, scientists have been trying to influence the direction and speed of evolution.

    Introducing heavy metals and other matter into the human race as experiments with various ways to affect evolution have been eagerly pursued by the tinkerers. The Nazis, fascists and communists were not the first nor even the worst examples of that experimentation. While there have been (apparent) benefits along the way, the horrific changes far outweigh them [autism, efemininity of males, masculinity among females, dangerous and addictive drugs, etc. etc.]. There is no limit to the depravity to which the human race will stoop.

    Defeating fluoridation will be a great victory over the totalitarian oligarchic state. Next will be the elimination of forced vaccinations, and then chemtrails, and we will have come a long way at improving our health and freedom and defeating the evil monsters that rule us.

    • davidnrobyn

      And in all three cases, you can bet that the entire weight of the gov apparatus will be arrayed against us.

  • LawrenceNeal

    the EPA is still fighting to propagate public poisoning. Part of the dumbing-down of the population.

  • Jonathan Halsey

    One more brick in the wall.

  • FreeOregon

    Eugenics to reduce the population, since we now know fluoride is a neurotoxin, one of a growing list that includes lead and mercury.

  • georgesilver

    We only drink distilled water which I distill myself. Been doing it for years. I’m 75, fit and have no health issues.

  • Earn nest

    Do you really think they started adding fluoride to help peoples teeth?

  • David W–Maine.

    Whoa!!

    I practiced dentistry in Brunswick, Maine for 45+ years. I could tell the kids from Bath, Maine, 10 miles away, from the ones from Brunswick [which has had fluoridated water for more than 45 years] just by examining their teeth. The Brunswick children were basically cavity free while those from Bath were loaded with cavities!
    I think water fluoridation is one of the foremost benefits to public health ranked right up there with Salk Vaccine. I don’t know where all this hoopla that you and your respondent present comes from.
    I give the following, with references, for your consideration:

    Fluoride in Water is Safe and It Works

    More than 70 years of scientific research has consistently shown that an optimal level of fluoride in community water is safe and effective in preventing tooth decay by
    at least 25% in both children and adults. Simply by drinking water, Americans can benefit from fluoride’s cavity protection whether they are at home, work or school. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention named community water fluoridation one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century.

    AND

    …. Compendium of more than 125 “National and International Organizations That
    Recognize the Public Health Benefits of Community Water Fluoridation for
    Preventing Dental Decay.”

    Fluoridation Facts contains answers to frequently asked questions
    regarding community water fluoridation. A number of these questions are
    based on myths and misconceptions advanced by a small faction opposed to
    water fluoridation. The answers to the questions that appear in
    Fluoridation Facts are based on generally accepted, peer-reviewed,
    scientific evidence. They are offered to assist policy makers and the
    general public in making informed decisions. The answers are supported
    by thousands of credible scientific articles including the more than 350
    references within the document. It is hoped that decision makers will
    make sound choices based on this body of generally accepted,
    peer-reviewed science.

      I can’t dispute your findings, but I don’t accept them either. Most witnesses to scientific controvery suffer from insufficient knowledge and inability to profit from complicated data. My family grew up drinking fluoridated water and all of us battled cavities. Likewise with most others we knew. Anecdotal evidence is insufficient, yours and mine, although yours is admittedly more replete and likely more reliable. Hopefully, the fluoridation controversy will grow until the evidence proves out one way or another. Until then, let’s keep fighting and learning from this good fight.

    The issue is what right does government have to medicate us. Is prozac next?

    • Anon.

      Prozac is a Fluoride compound. Fluoxetine

  • Anon.

    Fluoride Poison on Tap is a great documentary to make unaware friends and family aware.

    The original “science” was that it caused less cavities… because they had less teeth at the end of the study!
