Using the water supply to deliver fluoride drugs is unethical.
We are a national organization that aims to end water fluoridation by using the power of education, science and the law.
We educate that there now is abundant science showing that drinking fluoride can harm health in real ways.
Americans deserve clear consent about all drugs. Fluoride is a drug and not a nutrient. The body does not need fluoride.
Fluoride is now labeled a developmental neuro toxin. Our babies' brains are at risk.
Fluoride is an endocrine disruptor: effects on the thyroid, hormones and glucose are concerning.
The National Research Council has unamimously stated that the EPA guidlines are not protective.
Dental Fluorosis (mottling): White children have about 36% and Black children have 58% disfigured enamel.
EPA Headquarters Professionals' Union, Speaks Out
The EPA union which is comprised of and represents the approximately 1500 scientists, lawyers, engineers and other professional employees at EPA Headquarters in Washington, D.C., released a statement expressing its opposition to fluoridation. Their statement ends:
"The implication for the general public of these calculations is clear. Recent, peer-reviewed toxicity data, when applied to EPA's standard method for controlling risks from toxic chemicals, require an immediate halt to the use of the nation's drinking water reservoirs as disposal sites for the toxic waste of the phosphate fertilizer industry."
Fluoridation of our drinking water must be stopped. The potential risks, such as bone fracture, cancer, and endocrine disruption, far outweigh any perceived dental benefits. Instead, we need a public health campaign to reduce sugar consumption and improve toothbrushing practices for our children. Instead of safeguarding our health, the municipalities incorporating fluoride are jeopardizing the health of millions of young people.

I believe both my boys ages 9 and 11, have dental fluorosis. The oldest one has it the worst as well as a soft spot on his tooth the dentist says he will not fill because it is a baby tooth. Our regular dentist doesn't acknowledge the white spots covering the teeth as dental fluorosis. We need a good holistic dentist to diagnose for us.
Mouth or teeth-cleaning products present a danger to pets, especially dogs. Sodium fluoride at a dosage of 5 to 10 milligrams per kilogram can be fatal, and toxic effects can occur at less than 1 milligram per kilogram. Fluoride is absorbed quickly (most...
New York – October 15, 2014 — Government health authorities knew over 50 years ago that black Americans suffered greater harm from fluoridation yet failed to warn the black community about their disproportionate risk, according to documents obtained by the Fluoride Action Network (FAN).
Swirling questions about conflicts of interest and improper influence grew rapidly today as Freedom of Information Act documents showed that since the 1970s, dental health professionals alone in the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have controlled the agency’s stance supporting water...
The Israeli Ministry of Health has ordered the cessation of fluoridation because it presents health dangers and its benefits are no longer widely accepted.
Dear Doctor, What pregnant woman would drink a purported 'medication' in unknown dosages of unknown quality, when no scientific or rigorous studies have established safety for her precious and growing baby?
Dear AMA, Tell us how you can continue to endorse water fluoridation chemicals as safe in light of the science, the peer-reviewed studies, and the evidence-based damage? Tell us of the controlled trials that the AMA used to evaluate your decision in order to endorse added drugs to the water supply? We can not locate any controlled long term clinical trials that were done.
Dear Dentist, Why do you continue to endorse fluoridation chemicals when the published data suggests that if fluoridation chemicals work, they work topically (brushing it on) and not by drinking these chemicals?
