End Fluoridation Portland Water District

In America, about 70% of public water supplies are fluoridated. This equates to approximately 185 million people, which is over half the number of people drinking artificially fluoridated water worldwide.
However, 98% of European countries such as France, Sweden, Italy, Norway and Belgium have banned the use of fluoride in water supplies.
America needs to wake up. Fluoride shouldn't be in our water.
Fluoridation is a bad medical practice. Fluoride is the only chemical added to water for the purpose of medical treatment. As a matter of basic logic, adding fluoride to water for the sole purpose of preventing tooth decay (a non-waterborne disease) is a form of medical treatment.
Fluoridation is unethical. Informed consent is standard practice for all medication, and one of the key reasons why most of Western Europe has ruled against fluoridation.
Fluoride accumulates in the body. Healthy adult kidneys excrete 50 to 60% of the fluoride ingested each day/ The remainder accumulates in the body, largely in calcifying tissues such as the pineal gland
There has never been a single randomized controlled trial to demonstrate fluoridation’s effectiveness or safety.
Benefit is topical not systemic. The CDC, 1999, 2001 has acknowledged that the mechanism of fluoride’s benefits are mainly topical, not systemic. There is no need whatsoever, therefore, to swallow fluoride to protect teeth.
The largest survey ever conducted in the US (over 39,000 children from 84 communities) by the National Institute of Dental Research showed little difference in tooth decay among children in fluoridated and non-fluoridated communities
Children are being over-exposed to fluoride. The fluoridation program has massively failed to achieve lowering dental decay rates while limiting the occurrence of dental fluorosis. Dental fluorosis is a discoloring of tooth enamel caused by too much fluoride. In 2010 the CDC reported that 41% of American adolescents had dental fluorosis.
According to the National Research Council, “it is apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain.” In a review commissioned by the EPA, fluoride has been listed among about 100 chemicals for which there is “substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity.”
There have now been 33 studies from China, Iran, India and Mexico that have reported an association between fluoride exposure and reduced IQ. One of these studies indicates that even just moderate levels of fluoride exposure can exacerbate the neurological defects of iodine deficiency.
Fluoride causes arthritic symptoms.
Fluoride damages bone.
Fluoride affects the pineal gland. One of the earliest fluoridation trials in the U.S. reported that on average young girls in the fluoridated community reached menstruation 5 months earlier than girls in the non-fluoridated community.
The evidence is clear. It is time to end fluoridation in America’s water supply.
I’m petitioning that the Portland water district cease adding fluoride to the water supply.
