As we mentioned last week, we labeled 2014 as the year to put a dent in water fluoridation. Here’s three more reasons to be concerned about water fluoridation:
- “Fluoride amounts to public murder on a grand scale.” A shocking quote from Dr. Dean Burk, former head of the National Cancer Institute’s Cytochemistry Sector, co-discoverer of biotin and publisher of more than 250 scientific articles. Why was he so concerned about the link between fluoride and cancer? Watch an interview with Dr. Burk here.
- Residents of Bernalillo County, home of Albuquerque, take note: Your Water Utility Authority Board is considering a reversal of a decision from 2011 to stop adding fluoride to drinking water. The move would cost taxpayers $400,000 initially, and $100,000 per year thereafter.
- Earlier we mentioned that the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) own National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory says that fluoride is a chemical with “substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity”.
The good news is that people all over the world are taking this fight to the grassroots; we here in the U.S. must follow the lead set by nine states proposing anti-fluoridation bills last year.
We encourage you to make an investment in Clearly Filtered, which filters out the majority of fluoride from any water supply, as well as arsenic, chlorine, and other unwanted additives. Take action today; a portion of your purchases made from Clearly Filtered will help us in our fight to remove added fluoride from your drinking water.
Stay tuned for more on this issue, and for how you can add your voice to the chorus calling for an end to forced fluoridation of our drinking water.
