As a matter of principle, it is improper to use a basic commodity such as drinking water as a vehicle for medication. This is a frightening and dangerous precedent to set and an inappropriate use of the public water supply.

1. Promoters of fluoridation say
that exposure to fluoridated water
doe notcontribute to an
increase risk for hip fractures.
French study reported that hip fractures among 3578 people, age
65+, were 86%
higher among those
with highest levels of fluoride

New!- FluorIdatIon Increases
Lead Absorption In Children
Blood lead levels have been found higher in children living in Massachusetts and Georgia communities with fluoridated water. Lead poisoning can cause learning disabilities, behavioral problems, hyperactivity, and higher rates of violent crime and substance abuse. Masters and Coplan, International Journal of Environmental Studies, 56:435-449, Sept. 1999.
2. Promotersof fluoridation say that
fluoridated water is completely
safe and has no harmful effects
on the health of humans.
Fact: The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) National Treasury Employees Union, Chapter 280, comprised of and representing the 1500 scientists, engineers, and attorneys who assess the scientific data for Safe Drinking Water Act standards and other EPA regulations, have unanimously gone on record against the practice of adding fluoride to public drinking water. "As the professionals who are charged with assessing the safety of drinking water, we conclude that the health and welfare of the public is not served by the addition of this substance to the public water supply ... Our members' review of the body of evidence over the past eleven years, including animal and human epidemiology studies, indicates a causal link between fluoride/fluoridation and cancer, genetic damage, neurological impairment, and bone pathology. Of particular concern are recent epidemiology studies linking fluoride exposure to lowered IQ in children.
In 1993, the US Department of Health and Human Services warned in its Toxicological Profile on Fluoride
(TP91 / 17) "Existing data indicate that subsets of the population may be unusually susceptible to the toxic effects of fluoride and its compounds. These populations include the elderly, people with deficiencies of calcium, magnesium and/or vitamin C, and people with cardiovascular and kidney problems . .. Postmenopausal women and elderly men in fluoridated Communities may also be at increased risk of fractures."
3. Promoters of fluoridation say
that every dollar invested in
fluoridation saves approximately
$80.00 in dental expenditures.
Fact: 'When the actual costs of dental care delivered in fluoridated and non-fluoridated cities are compared, residents of fluoridated cities seem to reap no economic benefit from fluoridation." Chemical & Engineering News. August: 1,1986.
fluoridated communities serve a substantially larger patient load than
dentists in fluoride- deficient communities..." Journal of the American

4. Promoters of fluoridation say that
ingestion of fluoridated water (1 ppm)
does not cause cosmetic defects
or mottling in teeth.
Fact: "[The Food and Drug Administration] recognizes that more recent data suggest that the incidence of fluorosis in children under 6 years of age is increasing in the United States." Federal Register. 60(194):52479, 1995.
that "the prevalence of dental fluorosis has increased in recent years
between 35% and 60% of the population in communities with fluoridated water
and 15% to 45% in communities with unfluoridated water." Pediatric Nursing.
without qualification that there is no
relationship between fluoride and
brain alterations characteristic
Fact: A recent study indicates that "more intensive neuropatho logical evaluations of fluoride (F) effects on the brain may prove to be of value" " . . chronic administration. of AIF3 and sodium fluoride (NaF) in the drinking water of rats resulted in distinct morphological alterations in
the brain ... Further studies of AlF3 and NaF are needed to establish the relative importance of a variety of potential mechanisms contributing to the observed effects as well as to determine the potential involvement of these agents in neurodegenerative diseases." Brain Research. 784:284- 298,1998.
that intake of fluoride
is not cumulative over time.
effect of ingesting fluoride
that fluoridation of water is the
best way to reduce dental decay.
Fact: "Fluoride strategies aimed at regular, low-level exposure to fluoride (e.g., fluoride toothpastes, rinses) are superior to fluoridated water for caries prevention. Pediatric Nursing. 23(2):
