Taking on the EPA in Federal Court.
Moms Against Fluoridation along with other nonprofit organizations and mothers on behalf of their children, is suing the EPA to end water fluoridation. We are now deep in the Federal court process and have already had successful rulings by in the 9th Circuit.
We have successfully passed the Motion to Dismiss, and we have successfully beaten back the EPA's attempt to limit our discovery.
The Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) was revamped, with bi-partisan support, and signed into law under President Obama. The TSCA is now being road-tested with our legal challenge!
Our life-sustaining drinking water, should never be used as a delivery system for a medicine of any alleged "drug". The fluoride chemicals that communities are now adding are harming health and our brains including the developing fetus. The modern science showing harm and adverse effects from drinking fluoride is now huge in both breadth and depth, and it is informative, sophisticated and rigorous. In the early 1950's when fluoride was rapidly deemed 'safe and effective' to drink and good for our teeth, there were many other things also deemed safe out of this era includuing DDT, smoking (by dentists and MD's!), asbsetos, lead in gasoiline and hydrofluorocarbons.
