A new law proposed in the U.S could be the end of unnecessary water fluoridation.
Fluoride has been added to water sources for year in an attempt to combat tooth decay, as a certain amount is known to help with dental hygiene.
However, in recent years there has been several sources which have linked fluoride with damage to health, particularly in children. It has been linked to brain disorders, ADHD, ADD and other behavioral disorders.
The government has turned a blind eye to the problem, as if the scale of the problem was realized it is bound to very widespread.
But a new law has been put forward by the FAN under Section 21 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) which wants to end the fluoridation of water in the interest of health.
It has been proposed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and attorney Michael Connet has said
“This case will present the first time a court will consider the neurotoxicity of fluoride and the question of whether fluoridation presents an unreasonable risk under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
And, in contrast to most other legal challenges of Agency actions, TSCA gives us the right to get the federal court to consider our evidence ‘de novo’ — meaning federal courts are to conduct their own independent review of the evidence without deference to the EPA’s judgment.”
If this law is passed and the real dangers of water fluoridation are realized it could be the start of a nationwide wake-up call to this very real problem.
The effects of fluoride on the brain were not recognised until the 1990’s when Doctor Jennifer Luke from the University of Surrey, UK studied the effects on the pineal gland in the brain.
The National Research Council said in 2006 –
“Fluoride is likely to cause decreased melatonin production and to have other effects on normal pineal function, which in turn could contribute to a variety of effects in humans.”
Fluoride use was even abused by the Nazis, acting under Hitler’s orders Fluoride was added to water to make prisoners of war more susceptible to following orders and becoming compliant.
