Excessive ingestion of fluoride during the early childhood years can damage the tooth-forming cells, leading to a defect in the enamel known as dental fluorosis. Teeth impacted by fluorosis have visible discoloration, ranging from white spots to brown and black stains. Excessive exposure to fluoride is well known to cause a bone disease called skeletal fluorosis. Skeletal fluorosis, especially in its early stages, is a difficult disease to diagnose, and can be readily confused with various forms of arthritis including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. In its advanced stages, fluorosis can resemble a multitude of bone/joint diseases. According to the National Toxicology Program, "the preponderance of evidence" from laboratory 'in vitro' studies indicates that fluoride is a mutagenic compound. Many substances which cause mutagenic damage also cause cancer. While the concentrations of fluoride causing mutagenic damage in laboratory studies are higher than the concentrations found in human blood, there are certain "microenvironments" in the body (e.g. the bones and the bladder) where the concentrations of fluoride can accumulate to levels comparable to, or in excess of, those causing mutagenic effects in the laboratory. Fluoride's ability to damage the brain represents one of the most active areas of research on fluoride toxicity today. The research on fluoride and the brain has been fueled by 18 human studies from China, India, Iran, and Mexico finding elevated levels of fluoride exposure to be associated with IQ deficits in children. Fluoride's impact on IQ is exacerbated among children with low-iodine exposure. Several recent studies have found that even adult exposures to fluoride may result in central nervous system disturbances, particularly among industrial workers. There are many more harmful health effects that is associated with fluoride i advise you to do research and to sign this petition for you and your family.

      Because fluoride is a DRUG which is UNSAFE at any level, and we should have the CHOICE as to whether we ingest a drug or not! If ANY dr., ANYwhere, told all of the people in a town to take a drug, at whatever dose they wanted to, no matter their age, size, weight, other health issues, etc., and to take it for as long as they wanted, even though there has not been adequate research on the many HARMFUL and often IRREVERSIBLE effects of that drug (including lowered IQ in children, association with ADD/ADHD (which, by the way, started multiplying aroud the time that fluoride was added to water), association with Alzheimers, brain-damage, skeletal fluorosis leading to arthritis and increased bone fractures (especially hip and vertebrae).... and if that dr. told people to take any amount of that drug, without telling them about ALL possible effects, he would lose his license for MANY reasons, not the least of which is that he is prescribing a drug without giving INFORMED CONSENT! WHY are we ALL being DRUGGED with NO CHOICE and NO INFORMED CONSENT! It is absolutely CRIMINAL! Large manufacturing companies are using city municipal water supplies to get rid of their TOXIC WASTE! If they tried to pour the exact same fluoride compounds (that they are putting in our water) into a river or a LANDFILL to get rid of it, it would be ILLEGAL because of the extreme damage to the environment, so they are putting it in OUR DRINKING WATER instead??!! Does that make ANY sense?
