Water fluoridation is one of the greatest cons ever
perpetrated against society (it's actually not natural
fluoride they use but a toxic waste byproduct of the
phosphate mining industry).
But victories are being achieved almost every week as
town after town announces the halting of water
Now, a civil rights group has announced it openly
opposes artificial water fluoridation.
The days of artificial water fluoridation truly are numbered, and
this has been made even more evident by yet another prominent group
that has come out in strong opposition to the heinous practice.
The Fluoride Action
Network (FAN), a truth about fluoride advocacy group, reports
that the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC),
the oldest Hispanic civil rights organization in the US, recently
adopted a resolution decrying water fluoridation as a civil rights
The resolution declares that adding fluoride to water supplies is
essentially an illegal mass medication of the public.
It also mentions the
many current scientific studies that highlight the dangers of
ingesting fluoride, particularly among those with pre-existing
health conditions - and that public health authorities have ignored
this science in favor of
their unscientific, pro-fluoride agenda.
"This is about
forcing us to be medicated through our drinking water without
our consent or full disclosure of the risks," said Henry
Rodriguez, civil rights chairman of the Texas-based LULAC.
His group is vehemently
working to end the practice of water fluoridation across the US,
more than 64 percent of public water supplies
fluoridation is going to continue building and there is no
stopping it. There are millions of Hispanics and other
minorities in the US who don't have the funds to avoid
fluoridated water for making their babies' milk formula.
And millions of
families don't know they're being medicated in their drinking
water, or about possible risks for kidney patients and
Based on decades-worth
of statistics released by the US Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC), water fluoridation has provided no substantial
oral benefits for those consuming it.
Particularly in the
Hispanic community, many of those drinking fluoridated water still
have plenty of cavities - but they also now have high rates of
dental fluorosis, a condition where teeth become brittle, mottled,
and brown as a result of fluoride ingestion.
"Watch what develops
now as members of the Hispanic legal community are awakening to
this issue," said Daniel G. Stockin from The Lillie Center Inc.,
another group working to end water fluoridation.
"The train has left
the station. Fluoridation is ending. You can look for a
quickening cascade of cities, water utilities, health officials
and others distancing themselves from fluoridation."
