Dallas For Safer Water
Want to search text on a web page, pressing Control + F will bring up a search box.
NOTE: In 2019, we have a new Mayor and also some new faces on the Dallas City Council.
Again, we want to note that the current (2019) Dallas Mayor Pro Tem, Adam Medrano, courageously voted against water Fluoridation because he is concerned about the health of the citizens. He looked at the science, not the hype.
The Dallas City Council is culpable for unnecessarily risking the health of its citizens by adding Fluoride to the drinking water in the form of Hydrofluorosilicic Acid, (also known as FSA or HFS).
HFS is a highly corrosive, hazardous, toxic waste (per EPA) full of other contaminants such a lead, arsenic, mercury, radioactive particles, etc.
Many hundreds of scientific studies show that swallowing Fluoride can adversely affect health.
Never has the City Council presented scientific studies which show that swallowing Fluoride is safe for everyone, for all subpopulations (minorities, the Fetus, children, immune compromised, kidney patients, heart patients, cancer patients, thyroid compromised, etc).
~~~ Never has the City Council brought forth an open dialogue with experts on toxicology to a public forum discussion. ~~~

City of Dallas Water Utilities is a not-for-profit department of the City of Dallas providing water, wastewater, and storm drainage services to about 2.6 million people in Dallas and 27 nearby communities.
Its operations are funded through water, wastewater and stormwater rates paid by customers. Customers’ water use is metered to ensure accurate billing.
Terry Lowery is guilty of deliberately hiding information from you.
Customers entirely pay for Dallas Water, and they pay for fluoridation. The people of the Dallas metro area are the true employers of Dallas Water Utilities.
They deserve to be informed with balanced information, especially when it comes to ‘health risks’ versus ‘health benefits’ of a medical intervention that is arbitrarily added to the water.
The people of Dallas do not need their employees (City officials) acting as Authoritarians who will censor and cloak highly credible scientific information about health risks associated with fluoridation. Any Boss would fire an employee who deliberately withheld potentially life-altering information. The people of Dallas do not want Authoritarians telling them what to think.
The point is about balanced transparency of information by City officials. The point is not whether fluoridation is a good or bad thing. City officials have no right to intentionally hide valid scientific studies in their presentations of fluoridation when viewing a risk/benefit analysis.
Terry Lowery has deceptively and deliberately hid information about the health risks associated with fluoridation.
She cannot say, “I didn’t know about those scientific studies.”
Terry Lowery cannot say, “I trusted government agency Authoritarians and I trusted ADA publications, and thus censored the public’s right to know about those scientific studies. Therefore, I am not culpable if any person is harmed by fluoridation.”
Your employee, Terry Lowery, has intentionally withheld top-tier, U.S. government funded scientific studies which definitively demonstrate health risks at Dallas fluoridation levels (0.7mg/liter).
Anyone can “Select a Topic in Health Effects” for studies covering other health aspects. The information is easily available.
Any City Official who hides important information from its citizens should be fired.
The atrocity becomes criminal when people are injured as a result of the censorship.
City officials are not our Authoritarians; they are the people’s employees.
Dallas Water Utilities has long-term wholesale contracts with neighboring metro areas, which include the communities of Addison, Carrollton, Cedar Hill, Cockrell Hill, The Colony, Coppell, Denton, DeSoto, Duncanville, Farmers Branch, Flower Mound, Glenn Heights, Grand Prairie, Grapevine, Highland Park, Hutchings, Irving, Lancaster, Lewisville, Mesquite, Ovilla, Red Oak, Richardson, Seagoville, University Park, and Wilmer, as well as Dallas County WCID #6, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Ellis County WCID #1, and the Upper Trinity Regional Water District. The type of relationship varies with each community (e.g. treated water, untreated water, wastewater, irrigation only, reciprocal water and wastewater). Cities tend to renew contracts.
See pages 20 and 21 of this Dallas City Briefing Memorandum to get an overview of different cities and their relationship.
Each summer, the City of Dallas provides a Water Quality Report. You will note that Fluoride is categorized as a “Contaminant” with listed sources of contaminants being “Erosion of natural deposits; water additive which promotes strong teeth; Discharge from fertilizer and aluminum factories.” Removing fluoride from public drinking water is virtually cost prohibitive. About the Water Quality Report via the CDC/EPA.

Our Repeated Video Evidence of the Council 'horseshoe' (not shown on City TV) demonstrates a callous lack of concern for the health of citizens in Dallas and in the over 20 neighboring suburbs which receive Dallas water. Millions of people are affected. There can be no doubt that many people and pets are harmed by the Dallas City Council Members.
The principle of nonmaleficence states that we should act in ways that do not inflict evil or cause harm to others. In particular, we should not cause avoidable or intentional harm. This includes avoiding even the risk of harm. It is important to point out that this principle can be violated with or without intention. That is, you don’t have to intend harm to violate this principle. In fact, you don’t even have to cause harm. If you have knowingly or unknowingly subjected a patient or colleague to unnecessary risk, you have violated this principle.

Michael Connett is the lead attorney for plaintiffs in the trial, which ran for two weeks in June 2020, in U.S. Federal Court. The court has yet to rule. The trial seeks to force the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to eliminate the “unreasonable risk” of neurotoxicity that fluoridated water presents to the American public.

In the “FLUORIDATION ON TRIAL” video with RFK, Jr. you will hear Michael Connett describe how the EPA did not call upon their own Fluoride scientists during the trial. Instead, the EPA used a notorious “rent-an-expert” company. The EPA administrators have an ugly history of censoring their own top fluoride scientists and studies. Read about the 1,500 EPA Washington D.C. employees who protested against the EPA corruption on fluoride water safety.

Tuesday Evening November 15, 2022 – DeSoto, Texas
DeSoto, Texas is seen as a very warm, welcoming City, recognized by many as unique and distinctive when compared to other cities in the area. The City of DeSoto was honored to be named an All-America City (only 10 cities honored annually). The warm caring nature of this community isn’t “shallow bureaucratic hype”. See this! DESOTO RELEASES RESULTS OF 2022 RESIDENT SURVEY Service Satisfaction Remains Higher in DeSoto Than in Most US & TX Cities
The City of DeSoto obtains its fluoridated drinking water from Dallas Water Utilities, as do many other Dallas suburbs.
Five Fluoride Activists appeared before the DeSoto City Council Tuesday evening, November 15th.
The Mayor and City Council Members were very welcoming and attentive as each activist spoke from their heart.
Marjorie S., Albert H., Joe S., Regina I. and Linda N. each presented a unique story of concern regarding fluoridation.
The Mayor emphatically thanked them for expressing these drinking water issues which directly affect the citizens of DeSoto.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
Fluoride Activist Ann was a morning “Open Microphone” speaker. She is a retired psychiatrist and walks the audience through the psychological aspects concerning both sides of the Fluoride debate.
Ann highlights that water fluoridation policy should sanely take into consideration all subpopulations.
(minorities, the Fetus, children, immune compromised, kidney patients, heart patients, cancer patients, thyroid compromised, etc.)
She later gives an example of “Someone who would rather protect children’s teeth, rather than protect their brains.”
Take that quote home.

It does not take a brain surgeon to figure out how the toxic Fluoride content of Dallas City water accumulates in the soil, waterways and ecosystem.
Dr. Philippe P. Hujoel of the UW School of Dentistry is also a periodontist in Shoreline, Washington. He recently published a paper entitled:
Private Interests and the Start of Fluoride-Supplemented High-Carbohydrate Nutritional Guidelines
“A key finding of this report is that public health policies can find their origin with the political leaders of an organization whose primary aims can include serving the private interest of the organization they lead, not necessarily serving the public interests.
It is the political leaders of an organization who have the authority to appoint committees and its members, and this appointing authority can influence the resulting public health message.”

Wed November 2, 2022 City Council Briefing
Fluoride Activists, Arman and Peter, were the first two of the morning’s five “Open Microphone Speakers”. Following the first five speakers, Council Member Adam Bazaldua made a motion to suspend the rules in order to hear the remaining speakers (who normally would have to wait all day until the horseshoe’s business was concluded.) The motion had a second. The remaining speaker(s) was heard.
We highly encourage readers to listen to all of the “Open Microphone Speakers” at this Dallas City Video link: https://dallastx.swagit.com/play/11022022-866
All of Wednesday’s “Open Mic” speakers drew attention to the threat of FREE SPEECH before the horseshoe. During the City Council Briefing of October 19th (Item A) , the Mayor was considering removing or censoring the “Open Mic” Public Speaking Video platform. (Scroll below to Oct 19th)
Fluoride Activist Arman first highlights the City’s tyrannical maneuver with considering ending “Open Mic”.
Arman chides the horseshoe for their involvement with the Shoreline “private” development. He verbally scolds the horseshoe by exposing the Shoreline Project 75 year tax abatement and other inappropriate aspects. [See the SHORELINE STORY with PHOTOS/IMAGES.]
Arman concludes: “Let’s put Fluoride up to a VOTE. Let the people of Dallas decide.”
Peter really knows how to tell a story in order to present important life-value concepts. Some Council Members need to re-groove their Value Concepts, especially when it comes to their indifferent concern – Some Council Members seem quite at home with RISKING the mental faculties of children and the health of citizens.
Peter had sent the horseshoe a Harvard Meta-Study which reviewed 27 studies on Fluoride’s relationship to lowered IQ. As the Harvard study scientists state: “This risk should not be ignored.”

Employee/Employer Relationship – Public Speaking and “Open Mic” in Jeopardy
We all can agree that the Mayor and City Council Members are EMPLOYEES chosen by the people in their community. The public are their employers. The public has concerns, and a transparent platform (Open Mic) exists where the employers (public) can address their employees (Council). Anyone can watch this transparent communication on City TV. City TV gives ALL EMPLOYERS (public) the ability to watch other employers express their concerns to the EMPLOYEES (Mayor/Council). "Open Mic" is the public's platform for civil communication.
Some Dallas citizens have found it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to be able to directly access their Council Member with their concerns. The “Open Mic” gives everyone an opportunity.
Any threat to stifle the public voice is an attempt to hijack the Employee/Employer Relationship, like we see in China.
There is an attempt to eliminate “Open Microphone” speakers, or to make their speech less effective by further changing the rules.
Over the years, we have noticed that the City Council has progressively, bit by bit, restricted the Open Mic rules.
Examples: At one time, the public had the opportunity to speak 5 minutes about their concerns. Now it is 3 minutes. At one time, Dallas residents watching the City’s video feed were allowed to see the visual presentations of the Open Mic speakers, but that is now censored to the viewers.
PROTECT OUR SPEECH
Do not let the Mayor and City Council (your employees)
whittle away your voice.

Dallas Considers Eliminating Open Microphone Speaker Sessions During City Council Meetings

On the morning of Oct 12th, Fluoride Activists Joe and Regina were among the “Open Microphone Speakers” before the Dallas City Council. City VIDEO - https://dallastx.swagit.com/play/10122022-848 (Mayor’s Birthday at video end)
Civil Rights Violation Regarding Forced Medication by LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens).
LULAC’s National Resolution Against Fluoridation.
Joe gives this printed handout for all members of the horseshoe, and asks that Council Members read along with him. Joe did not have enough time to finish reading it. [See below for more on LULAC.]
Regina follows up on the LULAC’s point about violating civil rights with forced medication. Regina describes how the Mayor heard the Executive Director for LULAC speaking about fluoridation in 2014.
Regina faults the Mayor for NOT dividing Item #29 on September 14th in order for the water fluoridation aspect to be addressed separately.
“There is deception going on here, and the public does not like it,“ states Regina.
She gives an example from April 27, 2016 about grossly inappropriate City Council procedure which hit international news.
Regina says, “This brings us to where we are today” and then goes on to discuss the September 14th Agenda Meeting.
-- City Council Rules for Procedure (last amended March 2022)
Section 4.5 - Every present member must vote yes or no unless there is a conflict. [See Vote IMAGE ]
3.4 Code of Conduct Enforcement - The City Manager is acting Sergeant at Arms and should enforce the Rules of City Council.
Section 4.9 - All members are expected to stay in attendance.
Section 4.10 - No Member shall leave a Meeting while in Session without first alerting the presiding officer.
Regina then plays an audio recording from the City Attorney’s office which states that the City Council polices itself.
Why have Rules if they are not followed? Why have Council Procedures when the Council itself does not follow them? “The Council polices itself” is beyond ludicrous, and the September 14th City Council actions completely disregard procedural protocol.

Four Fluoride Activists - VIDEO (14 minutes)
Marjorie S. who has been injured by fluoride poisoning has an advanced education and experience in Bio-Chemistry. She explained the ionic properties of Fluoride and how it relates to the necessary nutrient Iodine. See the July 2022 study below on this webpage: “Low Iodine In Pregnancy Worsens IQ Loss From Fluoride”.
Linda N. brought up the September 9, 2022 – Memorandum to Mayor and City Council. Linda highlighted some of its odd characteristics with presented handouts to the Council.
One of the most ridiculous absurdities in the September 9, 2022 – Memorandum to Mayor and City Council
is this statement: “While opponents of fluoridation have questioned its safety and effectiveness, none of their charges has ever been substantiated by scientific evidence.” …with a follow-up phrase of “pseudo-scientific literature”.
The City Official who wrote that statement is deceptively lying in several ways. This statement comes as a copy-n-paste from page 7 of the American Dental Association (ADA) "Fluoridation Facts", but these two words "The ADA's" were omitted, when it should read "The ADA's policies regarding...." [See IMAGE]-->
There are undeniable health risks from ingesting Fluoride.
Scientific studies demonstrate it.
The Dallas City Councils have seen well over 100 Fluoride Activist presentations and thousands of pages of printouts citing peer-reviewed scientific studies at respected institutions published in well-known journals. Anyone can access these scientific studies by going to the links on DallasForSaferWater.com.
Cyrena N. brought up the September 14th 2022 - Dallas City Council Agenda Meeting. During that meeting, Council Member Adam Bazaldua makes a motion to divide Item 29 into two parts which would separate the Fluoridation component from the rest of the lumped water budget in Item #29. The motion had a second and was voted on. Seven in favor of the motion and 7 opposed. It was not passed.
However, Council Member Gay Donnell Willis of District 13 was in the building, but did not vote. As Cyrena emphatically points out, this violates the “City Council Rules for Procedure” in a number of ways. Cyrenea makes it clear that this violation negates the vote on Item 29 and is not legally standing. She expects the Council to readdress Item 29.
Cyrena also dropped off fluoride toothpaste packets for the horseshoe. Informed people know about the poison control warning label.
Peter M. gives examples of how Federal agencies have often failed in their duties to protect citizens. He brings home the point that local governments have the potential to better serve their citizens. Peter mentions that many cities have stopped adding fluoride to the water. He also brings up the some of the peer-reviewed scientific studies at respected institutions which are published in well-known journals.

Wednesday - September 14th 2022 - Dallas City Council Agenda Meeting
Fluoride [Hydrofluosilicic Acid (HFS)] bundled within Agenda Item 29.
On Wednesday, September 14th 2022, the Dallas City Council Agenda Meeting occurred.
Item 29 (22-1921) on the Agenda has to with the Water Utilities Department budget for spending. Grouped within that budget was a request for purchasing the water fluoridation chemicals from Univar Solutions USA, Inc. - https://www.univarsolutions.com/product-categories/acids/hydrofluosilicic-acid
Here the Univar Solutions’ Safety Data Sheet for HYDROFLUOSILICIC ACID SOLUTION. (Link is an archived webpage)
The document itself can be an eye-opener with descriptives such as “hazardous”, “corrosive”, “toxic”, and “Harmful if swallowed”.
Page 4 describes how this industrial waste product is illegal to dump into waterways. E.g. “Prevent product from entering drains” and “If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.”
We outline this aspect with EPA documents below on the September 9th Memorandum.
VIDEO LINK - https://dallastx.swagit.com/play/09152022-515
Scroll down to Item 29. Click on “Item 29” to watch the video.
Nine concerned citizens spoke out against the harmful practice of water fluoridation.
Regina, Linda, Joe, Arman, Chantal, Dr. William Hirzy retired EPA Senior Scientist , David P., Chris H., and Travis.
Dr. William Hirzy was also previous Senior Vice-President of the Employees Union. See: WHY EPA'S HEADQUARTERS UNION OF
...Our union is comprised of and represents the approximately 1500 scientists, lawyers, engineers and other professional employees at EPA Headquarters here in Washington, D.C....
With less than two minutes before the Item #29 video ends, Council Member Adam Bazaldua makes a motion to divide Item 29 into two parts which would separate the Fluoridation component from the rest of the lumped water budget in Item #29.
The motion had a second and was voted on.
Seven in favor of the motion and 7 opposed.
It was not passed.
RAILROADED in 11 seconds by Mayor Eric Johnson
(-0:19 time left on video)
In 11 seconds, Mayor Eric Johnson says: “Is there a motion on Item 29? Moved and seconded. Any discussion? [No pause.] Hearing none, all in favor say “aye”. [“Wait, wait wait…I’m sorry Mr. Mayor…” says a Council person, but the Mayor does not pause.] Any opposed? Ayes have it. Next Item.” (-0:08 time)
Four seconds later the City Secretary says: “I note three in opposition. Thankyou.”
NOTE: The Mayor deliberately rushed through his patter. The ‘n’ in “Any DiscussioN?” blended right into his next phrase: “Hearing none, all in favor say ‘aye’”. There was not the slightest pause after the Mayor asked: "Any Discussion?"
It is very important to understand that Item 29 contained important aspects which help the City of Dallas to provide safer water. Of course, every Council Member wants the Water Department to have the tools it needs in order to provide safe water to the area’s citizens.
However, buried within Item 29 was also the purchase of Hydrofluorosilicic Acid (Fluoride). We believe that this was an intentional ‘tactical’ ploy by the Dallas City Water Department in order to not bring attention to the Fluoride issue.
The Dallas City Water Department has an AGENDA to forcefully place a ‘medical intervention chemical’ into everyone’s drinking water despite potential health risks. This is no secret. Read the Sept 9th Memorandum.
The Dallas City Water Department has an agenda towards this mandated medical intervention, and thus they deliberately omit any scientific studies which point to the health risks of water fluoridation. They do not give an objective presentation of all the facts. This is an insane approach to safer water. If health risks exist for an arbitrarily added and unnecessary chemical, then the public should know. The Water Department's agenda involves prescribing a medication without informed consent, and even without the rationale of dosage/weight or of an individual's other health factors.
We at DallasForSaferWater want to commend the following City Council Members who were willing to split Item 29 so that a discussion about Hydrofluorosilicic Acid (Fluoride) could occur.
Thankyou to: West, Moreno, Resendez, Bazaldua, Blackmon, Schultz, Mendelsohn. - Councilmember Bazaldua had moved to divide the question. Motion seconded by Councilmember Blackmon.
In October, the minutes to the September 14th City Council Agenda Meeting were published.
See pages 34 and 35 for Item 29.
One can only chuckle that the minutes did not mention Hydrofluorosilicic Acid or Fluoride, and that the minutes do not say that “Item 29 was RAILROADED in 11 seconds by Mayor Eric Johnson”.
Councilmembers Bazaldua, Blackmon and Schultz
voted “No” on Item 29.
This was a courageous act, especially considering that Item 29 also contained some important and beneficial aspects.
Their vote made a brave statement as “they refused to get on that bus.”

Friday - September 9, 2022 – Memorandum to Mayor and City Council
Regarding: September 14, 2022 Council Agenda Item No. 29 – ($1,325,000) (hydrofluorosilicic acid)
You can see the full “Memorandum” document at this ARCHIVED LINK without downloading it:
NOTE: Parts (see page 5) were copied from page 7 from this ADA paper, but deceptively these two words "The ADA's" (policies) were omitted.
NOTICE the second paragraph in the image above:
"Two open microphone speakers at the September 7, 2022 Council Briefing spoke in opposition to community water fluoridation, claiming such practice constitutes medicating the public without their consent. They further objected to the use of hydrofluorosilicic acid as a fluoride source, stating that it is an industrial waste and more recently, reported fluoride in drinking water presents neurodevelopmental risks to children."
That’s right! “such practice constitutes medicating the public without their consent”
With water fluoridation Dallas City Council Members are forcing everyone in the massive Dallas water-area network to consume a substance for the stated purpose of “medical reasons”. Council Members are practicing medicine.
Moreover, DOSAGE of this medication is on a wacky, mad scientist level. What about the construction worker in summer who drinks many liters of water every day? What about all the food cooked or manufactured in the Dallas area using water? What about all the soft drinks and beer which is made? How many milligrams of this “medical intervention chemical” does a pregnant mother or bottle fed infant consume? Since Council Members are now medical experts, they can tell the public what the optimum “healthy” number of milligrams of Fluoride should be ingested during pregnancy. Sadly, most City Council Members do not know how many milligrams are in a liter of water.
That’s right! “hydrofluorosilicic acid as a fluoride source, stating that it is an industrial waste”
Hydrofluorosilicic acid as a fluoride source is an industrial waste which comes mostly from the phosphate mining industry when they wash down their “pollutant scrubbers” smoke stacks so that the caustic fluoride chemicals do not enter the air. This hazardous toxic industrial waste can only be disposed of in specialized EPA disposal sites, but never dumped on the ground or in waterways. A previous supplier of hydrofluorosilicic acid to the City of Dallas was fined huge sums of money by the Federal government for improper disposal. REFERENCE LINK
However, if toxic contaminated hydrofluorosilicic acid hazardous waste is resold to the City of Dallas, then it “legally” becomes re-categorized. REFERENCE LINK (EPA document image)
The above references are on the Home Page.
That’s absolutely right! “fluoride in drinking water presents neurodevelopmental risks to children”
Hopefully, the Mayor and Dallas City Council are competent enough to explore this website and the links which it provides to find the actual peer-reviewed scientific studies in well-respected journals.
The mental and full body health of millions depend upon the actions taken by Dallas City Council Members on this issue.
Can the Mayor, Council Members and the City of Dallas honestly state with complete certainty that ingesting fluoridated water will definitely not adversely affect the health of anyone drinking it?
They need to have skin in the game…and become culpable and liable for any public harm caused by this needless water fluoridation policy.
FIRST – Do no harm.
Will they be wise enough to practice the Precautionary Principle and the Principle of Nonmaleficence when health risks are posed?

Wednesday – September 7, 2022 – Dallas City Council
Sadly, the vast Dallas water-network area now has many more children under the age of 7 who have suffered IQ loss and ADHD type conditions as a result of Dallas City officials with their toxic water fluoridation policies. This could have been prevented if City officials had applied the Precautionary Principle back in 2015 with the VOTE to end fluoridation.
On the morning of September 7th, Regina and Joe were among the “Open Microphone Speakers” before the Dallas City Council to again raise the issue of halting the harmful water fluoridation program by Dallas.

People who are competent enough to read and properly research the scientific literature rather than mindlessly chirp propaganda talking points definitely know that Fluoride can adversely affect a person’s mental state. It would be incredibly idiotic for any policy maker or government official to not practice the Precautionary Principle when it comes to toxic substances such as Fluoride or Lead. Officials demonstrate their true concern for the public welfare by practicing the Precautionary Principle. Here is yet again, another study showing how Fluoride adversely affects a person’s mental state…

New Study: Low Iodine In Pregnancy Worsens IQ Loss From Fluoride
A new study from Canada published this week in the journal Nutrients, found that pregnant women who had low iodine levels and elevated fluoride had boys who suffered an average IQ loss that was 58% greater than the already significant IQ loss from elevated fluoride alone [Goodman 2022].
Artificially fluoridated drinking water was the main source of the fluoride. The boys of women with low iodine levels lost, on average, 9.3 IQ points, while those of mothers with adequate iodine lost 5.9 IQ points, for every 1 mg/g increase in mother’s urine fluoride concentration.* In previous work in the same group of pregnant mothers, drinking water fluoridated at 0.7 mg/L was associated with an increase of roughly 1 mg/g in urine fluoride [Till 2018].
23% of the Canadian women who took part in the new study were classified as having “low iodine”. The iodine status of pregnant women in the USA is much worse than in Canada, with well over 50% currently meeting the criteria for “low iodine” used in this study [Watson 2020]….
INFORMATION on IODINE as it relates to Fluoride…
Iodine is an important nutrient for a host of body processes, and especially for the Thyroid. Fluoride is not a nutrient and is not needed for any body process, and in fact the body tries to sequester the toxic fluoride that is not eliminated via the kidneys, and thus it goes to the bones. Calcium tends to attract fluoride. About half of the consumed fluoride accumulates in the bone and other places.
Fluoride hijacks the body’s receptors for the necessary nutrient of Iodine. Iodine, along with Fluorine, Chlorine and Bromine are in the same column of the “Periodic Table of Elements”. In other words, they all have some common chemical properties. Thus, Fluoride and Iodine are at conflict with each other as it relates to health.
To better understand this mechanism of how the body tries to protect itself from internal Fluoride exposure, WATCH this 4 minute VIDEO entitled: "Middle Aged Harm from Fluoride Exposure". The video contains scientific study references in the footnotes. From the video one will also gain insight about achy joints, bad knees, easily cracked teeth or broken bones.

July 3, 2021 - Updates on the Fight to End Water Fluoridation with Dr Mercola and Dr. Paul Connett
Dr. Joseph Mercola interviews Paul Connett with the Fluoride Action Network. (Story and transcript available at link.) LINK
~~ Paul Connett, executive director of the Fluoride Action Network (FAN), provides promising updates on the historic lawsuit that FAN filed against the U.S. EPA to end water fluoridation.
~~ The judge hearing the case plans to review two things before making a decision: the National Toxicology Program’s (NTP) final review on fluoride’s neurotoxicity when it comes out, along with a benchmark dose study (BMD) that was recently published on fluoride’s effects on IQ levels.
~~ This landmark study found that a maternal urine fluoride concentration of 0.2 mg/L, which is exceeded four to five times in pregnant women living in fluoridated communities, was enough to lower IQ in children by one point.
~~ A Swedish study published in April 2021 found that rates of hip fractures among postmenopausal women were higher in regions with higher levels of fluoride in drinking water.
~~ The level of evidence that fluoride is neurotoxic now far exceeds the evidence that was in place when lead was banned from gasoline.
EXCERPT from Article/Interview:
Other (National Institute of Health) NIH-funded studies include:
Babies fed formula mixed with fluoridated water had IQs that were lower than babies fed formula mixed with nonfluoridated water, and researchers noted, “Consumption of formula reconstituted with fluoridated water can lead to excessive fluoride intake.”
According to Connett, “So the only difference was whether these children got fluoridated tap water in their formula when they were babies. A staggering 13 IQ points dropped, staggering.”

January 13th, 2021 Judge's Order -
Judge denies latest EPA effort to dismiss TSCA fluoride suit
A federal judge has once again denied EPA’s efforts to dismiss landmark TSCA litigation seeking to force the agency to regulate drinking water fluoridation, but the same ruling also says that the agency will be allowed to challenge any effort by the plaintiffs to amend the suit to bolster their legal standing.
The Jan. 13 order by Judge Edward Chen, of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, preserves the suit but keeps it in abeyance pending a final decision from EPA on the plaintiffs’ renewed petition urging it to take administrative action on fluoride — a step Chen mandated after a 2020 trial in the case, known as Food & Water Watch, Inc (FWW)., et al., v. EPA.
TRIAL UPDATE NOTATION: January 7th Meeting Cancelled
Judge Chen informed the plaintiffs and the EPA on Dec 31 that he was vacating (i.e. canceling) the Jan 7 meeting because he did not need any further oral testimony before he rules on the EPA’s motion to dismiss our case, which they have attempted before and lost. He will issue his ruling on this motion based on the written arguments already submitted.
The Fluoride Action Network will let you and all supporters know when the judge issues his ruling on the EPA’s dismissal motion.
TSCA Trial Update: A Message from Attorney Michael Connett
QUICK NOTES: Some quick notes about the trial set for June 8th. The EPA has made every corrupt effort it could devise to stall or dismantle this lawsuit. It becomes very evident that their concern is not about public health. A hearing was set for August 6th, 2020 with a ruling by the Judge, but again things got put on a back-burner. The next hearing is January 7th, 2021.
Follow the Fluoride Trial (June 8th)
Video Trial on Fluoridation Chemicals Set for June 8 in Federal Court
Twice-delayed, a lawsuit seeking to prohibit the addition of fluoridation chemicals to public water systems in the U.S. because of the threat fluoride poses to the developing brain will begin June 8, reports the Fluoride Action Network (FAN).
Under the jurisdiction of the U.S. District Court in San Francisco, the eight-day trial will be conducted by video conference, rather than in the courtroom, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
FAN is the lead plaintiff in the groundbreaking case, which challenges a practice endorsed by the U.S. Public Health Service 70 years ago and that today affects more than 200 million Americans through water systems in thousands of communities.
In accordance with U.S. law, the trial will be accessible to the public, although details remain to be worked out. Whatever the precise format, fluoridation, aggressively promoted by the American Dental Association and the government as a tooth decay preventative, will get a close look over eight days.
As plaintiff, FAN is joined by Moms Against Fluoridation and the consumer advocacy group Food and Water Watch. The groups are joined by several individuals representing themselves and/or their children.
Plaintiffs are represented by Michael Connett and C. Andrew Waters of Waters Kraus and Paul of El Segundo, California. The defendant is the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), represented by the Environmental Defense Section of the U.S. Department of Justice.
“This case is groundbreaking for the opposition to fluoridation,” said Paul Connett, FAN Executive Director. “Several well-conducted and government funded Mother-Offspring studies indicate that fluoride has the potential to lower the children’s IQ. These studies have changed the ball-game on the argument over fluoride’s neurotoxicity.”
EPA plans to call on hired experts from the consulting firm Exponent Inc., known for servicing large corporations.
The lawsuit falls under the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976 (TSCA) which gives EPA the authority to prohibit “the particular use” of a chemical substance if it presents an unreasonable risk to the general public or susceptible subpopulations.
The plaintiffs submitted a Citizens Petition under Section 21 of TSCA to the EPA in November 2016 requesting a ban on the addition of fluoridation chemicals to water. When the EPA denied their Petition, they filed suit in federal court.
A Fact Sheet providing further information on the case is at
Fluoride Action Network – Founded year 2000

COVID Era - Early Spring 2020
NOTE - Following the January 8th address to the Dallas City Council, there were a host of other actions by activists, including presentations, flyers, bumper stickers, phone calls, emails, and signs around the City.
They are well worth noting, because they certainly brought attention to the Fluoride issue.
However, we got behind on updates.
Events with the Coronavirus worldwide started to impact people everywhere.
We wish to acknowledge all the citizens who at a grassroots level took it upon themselves to try to make Americans healthier.
It is unfortunate that the Health of Dallas area citizens has been impaired by the water fluoridation practice.
In this COVID era, full body health is of upmost importance for the immune system.
Blame the Authoritarians who mandate poison in your water.

Wednesday November 13, 2019, Regina Imburgia speaks to the Dallas City Council.
She commends the 5 City Council Members (Districts 2, 5, 7, 11, & 12) who voted not to purchase the EPA-rated hazardous waste (Fluoride) on August 14, 2019.
Regina brings up an analogy about how a 6 year old could comprehend the choice between putting a poison in the water which can hurt your brain, but possibly might prevent some cavities.
Which choice would the 6 year old decide? Would the 6 year old choose: "hurt my brain in order to protect my teeth."
Regina drives home the point that the City Council Members are "caretakers" of the people.
She points out that there are over 300 studies which show that Fluoride hurts the brain. They can't all be wrong.

Bombshell Study! - Link
The World's Premier Pediatric Scientific Journal has published a new government study.
Pregnant mothers drinking fluoridated water could lower their children's IQ!
(lowering IQ on par with Lead poisoning)
You can repair a cavity, but you cannot repair a child’s brain.
The American Medical Association’s journal on pediatrics (JAMA Pediatrics) has published the second U.S. Government-funded study linking low-levels of fluoride exposure during fetal development to cognitive impairment.
The observational study, entitled "Association Between Maternal Fluoride Exposure During Pregnancy and IQ Scores in Offspring in Canada", was led by a team at York University in Ontario, Canada and looked at 512 mother-child pairs from six major Canadian cities. It was funded by the Canadian government and the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Science.
A must-hear twelve-minute podcast (above) featuring AMA Pediatrics Editor in Chief, Dimitri Christakis, MD, MPH, and Frederick Rivara, MD, MPH, Editor in Chief of JAMA Network Open, was also released alongside the study. The editors express how “very concerning” and “startling” the evidence is against fluoridation, and how the neurological damage is “on par with lead.” They praise the high quality of this study, and call for additional NIH funding of more fluoride research. Before publication, the study was subjected to two statistical reviews, with the researchers combing through the data to make sure that the results were not skewed by the mothers’ education, income levels, or other factors.
Most importantly, they recommend that pregnant women avoid drinking fluoridated water.
Many NEWS ORGANIZATIONS covered the release and publication of this bombshell study.
Researchers noticed a 3.7 to 4.5 drop in IQ Scores!! LINK
Critics of this rigorous study tell fabricated falsehoods about it. LINK

After bringing up this new rigorous JAMA Scientific Study, Regina points out:
"It is obvious now that Fluoride is not safe for fetuses. There is NO process in the body that needs Fluoride...."
Dr. Ken D Berry, MD, FAAFP, is a Board Certified Family Physician and Fellow in The American Academy of Family Physicians. He has been practicing Family Medicine in rural Tennessee for over a decade, having seen over 20,000 patients in his career.
Under his 18 minute YouTube VIDEO, he links other studies and source material.
Dr. Ken Berry discusses details of the study, along with all sides of the Fluoride issue.
He also brings up just plain common sense.
Yes, common sense. Something most politicans lack.
On Wednesday, August 21, 2019, Regina Imburgia spoke before the Dallas City Council.
Regina has been speaking to the Council for the past 5 years about the liabilities of water fluoridation.
Over 100 presentations by activists have been given to the Dallas City Council, along with huge stacks of scientific studies.
NEVER HAS THE CITY OF DALLAS SHOWN ANY SCIENTIFIC STUDY THAT STATES: "Swallowing Fluoride is safe for everyone."
Click "Open Microphone Speakers" and listen to Regina at the 4 minute mark.
Under the JAMA EDITORS' NOTE, the following comment appears:
On Nov 22, 2016, a coalition including FAN, Food & Water Watch, Organic Consumers Association, American Academy of Environmental Medicine, International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, Moms Against Fluoridation, and several individual mothers, filed a petition calling on the EPA to ban the deliberate addition of fluoridating chemicals to the drinking water under provisions in the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
This lawsuit is based on a large body of human, animal, and cellular research, which shows that fluoride is neurotoxic at doses within the range now seen in fluoridated communities.
The judge of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California has just announced that the trial will begin on February 3, 2020.
As many independent scientists now recognize, fluoride is a neurotoxin. The question, therefore, is not if fluoride damages the brain, but at what dose.
This Federal Lawsuit against the EPA will allow the court to determine based on over 2800 studies (suppressed by EPA and CDC) showing the dangers of ingesting fluoride.

Mount Sinai Researchers publish Scientific Study:
Fluoride may diminish kidney and liver function in adolescents.
Ashley J. Malin, PhD, postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai points out:
“This study’s findings suggest that there may be potential kidney and liver health concerns to consider when evaluating fluoride use and appropriate levels in public health interventions. Prospective studies are needed to examine the impact of chronic low-level fluoride exposure on kidney and liver function in the U.S. population.”

Fluoride is discussed by a group during this radio show.
Regina Imburgia and a Pro-Fluoride PhD faculty member, Dr. Amal Noureldin from Texas A&M College of Dentistry, discuss the science, as well as a call-in guest who is an Environmental Scientist / Toxicologist. The publication for Texas A&M College of Dentistry had an article about the radio show.
Evidently, Dr. Amal Noureldin, the Pro-Fluoride faculty member, is unfamiliar with many of the peer reviewed scientific studies.
Dr. Hardy Limeback, a world reknown dental researcher, could point out important studies for her to view.
Dr. Amal should contact Dr. Limeback for the science, if she is really and truly interested in the full story and facts.
Hardy Limeback has given many presentations over the years. The following is a brief 13 minute, but POWERFUL presentation to City Council members, backed by references and peer reviewed scientific studies.
Toothpaste Kills Little Girl
April 17, 2019 - Yahoo Lifestyle Story LINK
Tragic Story of 11 Year Old Denise Saldate of California Who Died From a Toothpaste Reaction
EXCERPTS FROM ARTICLE
"…so they allowed her to use MI Paste One, a medicated toothpaste prescribed by her dentist.
“Denise had white spots on her teeth and the toothpaste was supposed to strengthen her enamel,” Altamirano tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “She was so excited to use her ‘special’ toothpaste.”
On April 4, while she was brushing her teeth with her 15-year-old sister, Denise ran from the bathroom crying. “She said she couldn’t breath and her lips were blue,” Altamirano tells Yahoo Lifestyle. The mom called 911 and administered chest compressions, which she learned in her former career as a school bus driver.
Denise died that night. “The toothpaste was all over her teeth and gums and it cut off her oxygen,” said Altamirano.
Only two weeks after their daughter’s death, Denise’s parents said raising awareness is “the only thing that makes sense.”…."
Other aspects to take note of...
"Denise had white spots on her teeth..." - This is an alarming sign that Denise likely suffered from Dental Fluorosis, which only comes about from swallowing too much fluoride. The body is already overdosed with this toxic poison.
Did the Dentist inform the parents that Denise had fluorosis?
The little girl's Mi Paste One toothpaste had a high concentration of fluoride! (1,100 ppm) Most kids do not follow the FDA safety guidelines of using a small, pencil eraser sized or pea sized dab of toothpaste. The FDA warns to call poison control if more than that is swallowed. Rather, kids tend to use a long strip of toothpaste, 5 to 10 times the safety guidelines. And kids tend to swallow toothpaste.
White spot lesions are not only the result of demineralization, however, as fluorosis, hypomineralization/hypomaturation and hypoplasia can also cause lesions. ... Fluorosis may present initially as white spot lesions that progress to brown spots, due to the inherent porosity that makes them susceptible to stain.
Fluoride Sensitivities and Allergic Reactions - This toothpaste was "prescription grade" and contains a very high level of fluoride. Many people can be sensitive to fluoride. Scroll below to "Melissa Gallico" to read about how different people react to fluoride (including respiratory issues). Watch this heartbreaking 5 minute video of a little girl. Read some of the science studies here. Fluoride Toxicity and Lethal Dose is cited here along with documentation. Mechanisms of harm to the body are cited here, which also includes how the "phosphate ion" interacts in the body. (The toothpaste contains phosphate chemicals.) If you prefer a 6 minute video of a body harming mechanism involving fluoride and also phosphate, watch this VIDEO CLIP.
Toxic Soup of Toothpaste Ingredients and Delivery Mechanisms - Fluoride can act as delivery vehicle for other chemicals. Remember that fluoride is very permeable, and in fact, it becomes difficult to filter fluoride out of water. While a person may have an allergy to milk based ingredients, fluoride could facilitate the absorption and toxicity of this allergen.
This brand of toothpaste was loaded with potentially toxic chemicals and ingredients, such as potassium nitrate, hydroxybenzoates, propylene glycol, phosphoric acid, sodium-N-lauroyl sarcosinate, etc.
Allergies and Food Allergies - Unfortunately, little Denise Saldate had an allergy to milk products. Some people are much more sensitive than others to allergens.
Anaphylaxis is a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. The reaction can occur within seconds or minutes of exposure to an allergen. Symptoms include a skin rash, nausea, vomiting, difficulty breathing, and shock. If not treated right away, usually with epinephrine, it can result in unconsciousness or death.
From CDC statistics, we can notice that food allergies are increasing at an alarming rate. CHART
This scientific article, “The Allergy Epidemics: 1870–2010” lays out some interesting information, including injected aluminum.
One probable cause of many food allergies...
The Immune System and Allergies – The body’s immune system is designed to fight off “intruders” (toxins, bacteria, viruses, etc.) Sometimes the immune system misidentifies an “intruder”, such as a food product.
A well-known, deliberate method of prompting the immune system to “identify intruders” is by injecting aluminum into the body. (Scroll below to the ALUMINUM section.)
Famous Environmental Scientist and Attorney, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. gives a 5 minute VIDEO overview of how aluminum injections are causing many of the allergies which we see.
MILK & “Recaldent” – The "Mi Paste One" toothpaste component derived from milk casein.
[Recaldent (cpp-acp) casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate]
An Australian University, and also a regional Dairy Industry Authority in Australia own the patent rights to Recaldent’s ingredients. A large coalition of Australian dairy farmers owns the product tradename “Recaldent”, along with exclusive marketing and manufacturing rights.
FINANCIAL VESTED INTERESTS? – It doesn’t take much for the imagination to assume that these interests have a strong focus towards selling their product. There are many vested interests in this world, who may not have your best interest at heart - especially when it comes to money and reputation.
The FDA has never directly approved Recaldent for the purpose of “remineralizing dentin and enamel
and preventing dental caries (cavities)”. It is considered an “off label” use of the product in the United States.
World renown Dental Scientists, Amir Azarpazhooh and Hardy Limeback, researched this product in 2008.
“Clinical efficacy of casein derivatives: A systematic review of the literature”
CONCLUSION of the Science Review: "We conclude that there is insufficient clinical trial evidence (in quantity, quality or both) to make a recommendation regarding the long-term effectiveness of casein derivatives, specifically CPP-ACP, in preventing caries in vivo and in treating dentin hypersensitivity or dry mouth...."

Alarming News - 65% of children are now affected!
Recent Scientific Research - A Majority of Children Now Have Fluorosis
Fluorosis indicates a toxic body load of fluoride.
Scroll below to read more about FLUOROSIS.
It should be noted that many Dentists do not inform their patients about the fluorosis condition. Patients can sometimes notice in the mirror the white flecks on front teeth or pitting or easily stained teeth, but can not view rear teeth. Teeth are more brittle because fluoride mutates the growth of teeth. Thus, teeth can fracture and break more easily.
Dentists can make a lot of money repairing the damage (both cosmetic and structural).
A fluorosis body burden compromises the future health of the patient, because the fluoride stays within the body system for many years, if not a lifetime.

Water Fluoridation Accident Poisons City in Utah with Fluoride, Lead and Copper
Permanently Scars Piping Infrastructure and Creates Alarming Health Concerns
During February 2019, a dangerous health damaging situation occurred in Sandy, a Salt Lake City suburb.
Sandy, Utah has a population of about 90,000 and is filled with ranch and farmhouse style homes.
A power outage in Sandy, Utah on Feb. 6 caused dangerously high levels of fluoridation chemicals to enter the drinking water supply, which then corroded the pipes allowing high levels of copper and lead to enter the system. These three poisons (fluoride, lead, copper) made numerous residents ill, including a 3-month old baby. The local media is also reporting that the city failed to quickly notify the state of Utah or its residents of the dangerous contamination. VIDEO (one minute)
The leaching of Lead and Copper from pipes resulted from the Fluoride added to the water. HFS (Hydrofluorosilicic Acid)
It can happen slowly and gradually as it does in Dallas.
Or it can happen suddenly when a year's dose of Fluoride is added all at once, as in Utah.
Dallas has a serious problem with corroded pipes from years of Fluoride. As is documented on the Home Page, the Lead levels in Dallas tap water are alarming and continue to get worse each year.

U.S. Water Fluoridation:
A Forced Experiment that Needs to End
The important 2017 study that showed decrements in IQ following fluoride exposure during pregnancy is far from the only research sounding the alarm about fluoride’s adverse developmental effects.
In his 2017 volume, Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix, John D. MacArthur pulls together hundreds of studies linking fluoride to premature birth and impaired neurological development (93 studies), preeclampsia (77 studies) and autism (110 studies)...
...The book points out that rates of premature birth are “unusually high” in the United States. At the other end of the lifespan, MacArthur observes that death rates in the ten most fluoridated U.S. states are 5% to 26% higher than in the ten least fluoridated states, with triple the rate of Alzheimer’s disease. A 2006 report by the National Research Council warned that exposure to fluoride might increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s....

Potential Role of Fluoride in the Etiopathogenesis of Alzheimer’s Disease
LINK to Full Study
(“Etiopathogenesis” is the cause and subsequent development of an abnormal condition or of a disease.)
This Scientific Paper discusses many aspects revolving around Fluoride, and also how Fluoride may interact with other toxins in the body, such as Aluminum or pesticides.
It hits hard on the fact that Fluoride promotes inflammation and oxidative stress in many different ways.
"Fluoride as a Neurotoxic Agent"
"Fluoride is widespread in the environment, especially in industrial areas. It easily crosses the blood–brain barrier, wherein the accumulation of fluoride disturbs phospholipid metabolism leading to neuronal death. In overexposed women, fluoride can also pass through the blood–placenta barrier to enter the fetal circulation, where it has been shown to inhibit central nervous system development and cause neurodegeneration. In recent years, the mechanism and extent of fluoride’s effect on the nervous system have been the subject of increasing scientific interest."
"The effect of fluoride exposure on the developing brain (both pre- and neonatal) manifests clinically as memory loss and impairment of cognitive processes. Epidemiological studies showed that children living in areas with excessive fluoride exposure had lower IQ values compared to less exposed children. Industrial workers chronically exposed to fluoride showed a variety of neuropsychiatric symptoms including drowsiness, concentration and learning difficulties, and memory disorders..."
"…More recent studies have shown that the effect of fluoride on the central nervous system may be extremely varied and complex…."
March 15, 2019 - 65% of American children now have some degree of dental fluorosis.
Published in the "Journal of Dental Research – Clinical & Translational Research", researchers Chris Neurath, Dr. Hardy Limeback (see below) and Dr. Bill Osmunson (who spoke at a town hall in Dallas 2014), conducted an analysis of the most recently available government data. Fluorosis has skyrocketed. Neurath points out, "The rear teeth were usually the most affected...." (One Minute VIDEO on the elephant in the room - Fluorosis, a biomarker)
December 2018 - Gallico Studios launches
Gallico Studios is a community-driven effort dedicated to ending the harmful and misguided practice of artificial water fluoridation. Founded by author Melissa Gallico in December 2018, the studio produces video, audio, and written content to raise awareness of the damaging health effects of fluoride and why they are persistently overlooked by government health agencies.

Episode 1 of “The Gallico Show”
Melissa interviews Dr. Hardy Limeback, BSc,
PhD in BioChemistry, DDS.
Past President of the Canadian Association for Dental Research
and former head of the Dept of Preventative Dentistry at the University of Toronto.
"White specks" (Dental Fluorosis) (see above image with 2 arrows) indicates that the growing enamel has been mutated and compromised. The enamel is now more porous. This is ONLY caused by swallowing too much fluoride. But the whole body's health has also been adversely affected in many subtle ways.
EXCERPTS from interview below...
"...In terms of white spots. (Dental Fluorosis) It's called hypocalcification, or poor mineralization of the teeth. Those white spots are indicative of too much fluoride accumulation during tooth development and it's very common. Now it has increased to the point where 50% of children are getting some kind of dental fluorosis...
… (many times) Dental Fluorosis needs to be treated with fillings or veneers, porcelain veneers, …
It's quite expensive for families to handle, to try and treat the fluorosis which most kids find objectionable and they want to treat it because they don't want to be embarrassed with stained teeth." -- Dr. Hardy Limeback

Almost two decades ago, Dr. Limeback was interviewed.
Watch this fascinating 30 minute interview with Dr. Hardy Limeback, a true high-ranking Dental Professional and Researcher with integrity.
Keep in mind, that since May 2000, many more and alarming scientific studies have been published about fluoride.
December 4, 2018 - Article in "Top Health Journal"
Tamarind removes fluoride deposits from bones, research says
This is good news from several perspectives. We know that approximately 50% of the ingested Fluoride accumulates in the bones (see CDC's ATSDR). Over a lifetime this accumulation can be significant, causing all kinds of health risks, including arthritic symptoms and problems with bone formation.
Moreover, it is well known that during pregnancy, the Mother's bones are sometimes utilized for the developing fetus.
This is alarming, because Fluoride has been considered to have a higher neurotoxic effect than Lead.
Lead, like Fluoride, is often stored in the bones. Studies have shown how Lead from a pregnant Mother's bones can be passed to the fetus and growing infant (EPA statement). Plus, add to that 'alarm bell', the potential epigenetic effects to grandchildren.
The risks are certainly there.
Perhaps, tamarind can help future Mothers to ensure their baby is less exposed to the neurotoxin Fluoride.
It is beyond belief that many of the Dallas City Council members wish to risk poisoning babies.
They yawn when they deliberately add Lead to the drinking water.
And Fluoride is more of a neurotoxin than Lead.
Help the Fluoride Action Network (FAN)
Please send the "Renewed Call" below to your Doctor, Professor or other Professionals.
On November 15, 2018, the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) issued a “Renewed Call” to Professionals to sign a new statement opposing the fluoridation of public drinking water. This has been triggered by the publication of very important and disturbing Mother-Offspring fluoride studies, several funded by the U.S. Government (Bashash et al, 2017 and 2018; Thomas et al, 2018; Valdez Jiménez et al. 2017; Li et al, 2004).

Late October 2018
Attention: Nutritionists, Professionals, Politicians and the Public.
The following “Open Letter” is a 3 minute read.
It gives an excellent summary of the major findings from evidence-based science about ingesting Fluoride.
(Of course, most politicians are not interested in science, but rather they prefer to repeat “talking points” which have no basis on facts presented in the scientific literature.)

November 2, 2018 - Bloomberg News
A Huge, Special Report about how some FLUORIDE CHEMICALS don't degrade.
They are in Dallas Water and adversely affect health.
In Latest EPA Defeat, Judge Orders More Discovery In TSCA Fluoride Suit
A federal judge has ordered EPA to provide internal documents and allow plaintiffs to depose agency staff on the risks posed by fluoridation, mandates that highlight the effect of an earlier ruling allowing the plaintiffs to introduce new evidence in their landmark Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) suit rather than limiting it to the agency’s record.
In an Oct. 4 order, Judge Edward Chen, of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, ordered EPA to release internal documents regarding its scientists’ views of a study linking fluoridation to IQ decrements, as well as ordering EPA to allow plaintiffs to depose agency staff on whether its existing fluoride standards consider neurotoxicity risks.
The order marks the latest in a series of potentially precedential losses the agency has suffered in the landmark TSCA suit, Food & Water Watch Inc., et al, v. EPA, where environmentalists and public health groups are seeking to force EPA to grant their petition seeking to ban the practice of treating drinking water with fluoride.
“In my view, it’s quite significant going forward … [Chen] didn’t provide any qualifications. He allowed deposition and forced EPA to search for internal documents,” the plaintiffs’ attorney, Michael Connett with Waters Kraus & Paul’s Los Angeles office, tells Inside EPA. “Even though [the order] is not technically precedential, it’s nevertheless helpful guidance for future courts” because this case is the first of its kind.t appears EPA’s safety standards did not meaningfully consider fluoride neurotoxicity, and, as such, cannot be used to demonstrate a neurological safe level of fluoride.” …
In this 23 minute VIDEO interview, Mr. James Corbett interviews Dr. Paul Connett about the Lawsuit against the EPA.
The October 2018 Lawsuit update certainly has some good news.
There are many internal fluoride documents which the EPA has withheld from the public.
Thus, thousands are dead or sick.
With this October update, EPA officials can be called to testify and documents can be revealed.
However, despite top EPA officials being corrupt, many, many EPA employees strongly oppose Water Fluoridation because of it poses dramatic health risks.
Toxicologist, Dr. Paul Connett talks about three recently released studies linking fluoride exposure to ADHD, thyroid problems, and showing that pregnant women in “optimally” fluoridated Canada have significantly higher levels of fluoride in their urine than women in non-fluoridated communities. - LINK to Studies - 8 minute VIDEO
First Study - Thyroid, Fluoride & Iodine
The implications and importance behind the Canadian Malin Thyroid study can not be overstated.
More studies regarding Thyroid-Fluoride at the links below...
Plug in keywords here at the world's largest scholarly database for fluoride related contaminants.
See a long history of Fluoride-Thyroid investigations here.
Example: Thyroid conditions on dogs were deliberately caused using fluoride in 1854.
Crooked teeth, wide spread teeth, teeth too close, more prone to cavities, and other mouth problems can be caused by Thyroid problems. STUDY LINK with GRAPHIC
The Malin Thyroid-Fluoride-Iodine Study is well worth the read. The importance of adequate iodine intake is revealed in the study, since Fluoride is poisonous to the Thyroid function. Many other scientific references are noted. Several studies showed how as little as 0.3 to 0.5 mg/L in fluoridated water could impair Thyroid function. Dallas has 0.7 mg/L in its water. One liter of Dallas water gives a dose of 0.7 mg, certainly enough to impair Thyroid function for some people in the Dallas metropolitan area.
Could a small glass of Dallas water hurt your Thyroid function? Possibly. See the England study below.
One particular study occurred in England where 10% of the country's water is fluoridated. Researchers gathered public health information which showed folks who had Thyroid issues. Those living in fluoridated communities had a strong prevalence of Thyroid conditions, sometimes twice as high as those living in non-fluoridated communities.
It was posed that even 0.3 mg/L (0.3 ppm) of Fluoride could effect the Thyroid. Dallas water has 0.7 mg per liter of fluoride.
Thus, one half liter of Dallas water might hurt the Thyroid function of some people.
We highly recommend that you read this article, "The Great Iodine Debate" at WestonPrice.Org, including the comment section.
The article gives insight to the fact that the RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) is wrong. It is way too low, especially for our era. The history of Iodine details how a false RDA came into the American culture.
Local North Dallas / Plano Doctor Brandon L. Adams explains, in simple terms, the Halogens and how they affect the Thyroid.
Second Study - Prenatal Exposure to Fluoride & higher ADHD rates
Some folks often overlook this extremely important element...
How many milligrams of Fluoride is a safe dose for the Fetus?
Fluoride is known to cross the placenta from the maternal blood to the growing fetus.
This Fluoride--ADHD study by Bashash et al follows on the heels of the previous Bashash, landmark, September 2017 IQ study entitled: Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Cognitive Outcomes in Children at 4 and 6–12 Years of Age in Mexico.
See the "Home Page" of this "DallasForSaferWater" website for highlights of that 2017 study.
"Mothers To Be" should read this.
*****Unfortunately, after the release of the 2017 IQ study, there were some vested interests who made false, disparaging claims about the study.
Corrections are here and here (ADA) and here (study's strength) and here and here (over 300 studies show Fluoride damages the brain).
Yet, the 7 Pro-Fluoridation Studies are silly.
See the EPA's chart with FLUORIDE
"Chemicals with Substantial Evidence of Developmental Neurotoxicity"
Article in Medscape Medical News entitled “Prenatal Fluoride Exposure Linked to ADHD in Kids“
Prenatal exposure to higher levels of fluoride not only impairs cognitive development but also significantly increases the incidence of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children, new research shows.
"Our current study suggests that fluoride not only interferes with overall IQ or overall cognitive development but may also contribute to symptoms of ADHD," lead investigator Morteza Bashash, PhD, Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto, Canada, told Medscape Medical News (article “Prenatal Fluoride Exposure Linked to ADHD in Kids“)
Morteza Bashash, PhD is well known for the landmark, 12 year study published September 2017 “Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Cognitive Outcomes in Children at 4 and 6–12 Years of Age in Mexico”.
(*****See links above left)
Third Study - North America Fluoride Levels in Pregnant Women -
Confirms the Bashash September 2017 Study on IQ applies to United States
This third recent study also focused on Pregnant Women and Fluoride exposure.
BACKGROUND: Fluoride exposures have not been established for pregnant women who live in regions with and without community water fluoridation.
OBJECTIVE: The aim was to measure urinary fluoride levels during pregnancy.
The measured Fluoride urine levels were about two times higher for women living in fluoridated water districts compared to those women living in non-fluoridated districts.
Approximately 75% of the fluoride exposure comes from water, tea (tea naturally contains high amounts of fluoride) and other beverages (sodas or drinks made from fluoridated water).
The study also noted that older people, in general, had relatively higher amounts of fluoride in their urine, because around 50% of ingested fluoride accumulates in bone. As the bone rebuilds, previous fluoride deposits circulate.
This study did a wonderful job of comparing other fluoride studies and data to its findings.
It is worth noting these excerpts:
"...Fluoride exposure may also be neurotoxic, especially for the developing fetus..."
"...The National Toxicology Program (NTP) at the National Institutes of Health (NRC 2006) and others (Grandjean and Landrigan2014) have concluded that prenatal exposure to high levels of fluoride can alter neurodevelopment. Fluoride readily crosses the placenta (Forestieretal.1990) and, in animal studies, accumulates in critical brain regions involved in learning and memory (Bhatnagar et al. 2002; Dong et al.1997; Pereira et al.2011)...."
Keynote Take-Away from the Third Study (Community Water Fluoridation & Urinary Fluoride Levels in Pregnant Women)
This study validates and reinforces the Bashash IQ and ADHD studies.
This study confirms that Dallas Fluoridated Water poses tremendous risks to the Fetus, especially minorities such as African Americans and Hispanics.
Landmark Fluoride IQ Scientific Study - September 2017
“Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Cognitive Outcomes in Children at 4 and 6–12 Years of Age
in Mexico” - Bashash et al.
***** See LINKS upper left, near the ADHD Study
The September 2017 Study demonstrates that when pregnant mothers drink fluoridated waters at 0.7 mg/L fluoride, many are expected to give birth to children who will have meaningfully lowered cognitive function, perhaps 3 – 6 IQ points.
This means that Dallas which fluoridates the water (0.7 mg/L) falls into that category.
The credibility of the study is beyond reproach…
……a huge 12 year study, part of the Early Life Exposures in Mexico to Environmental Toxicants (ELEMENT) project.
……it was funded with $3 million in U.S. government grants from the NIH, NIEHS and EPA.
……this was one of the largest studies of fluoride and IQ to date with meticulous individual data sets on all participants for 12 years, controlling for many factors. It was as large as many of the studies that have been used to show that childhood lead exposure causes loss of IQ.
……it was published in the leading peer-reviewed journal of environmental health (Environmental Health Perspectives), which is published by the National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), a division of NIH.
……prestigious institutions conducted the study (University of Toronto, University of Michigan, Indiana-Purdue University School of Dentistry, McGill University Montreal, Harvard University, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and the National Institute of Public Health of Mexico.)
……starting with almost 1,000 mothers, the study rigidly qualified participants down to nearly 300 sets of mothers and children (testing the children twice). Children were tested on “verbal, perceptual-performance, quantitative, memory and motor abilities.”
Urinary Analysis was used.
This ensured that no matter what the source of fluoride was, the fluoride measurement comparison would not be compromised. (There are many sources of fluoride, such as water, food, supplements, pesticides, drugs, non-organic raisins, tea, etc.)
The Urine Levels measured in this study correlate with Urine Levels of people in the United States & Canada who drink Fluoridated Water at 0.7 mg/L.
Researchers in this study took great care to ensure that no other neurotoxin (such Lead, arsenic, mercury, etc.) was involved. The study controlled for other neurotoxins along with socioeconomic status and education. To ensure a standardized measure (not influenced by hard to monitor factors such as foods consumed), urine samples were used.
In Toxicology and when setting Public Policy, it is the lowest levels of exposure that cause harm that are relevant, not the highest levels.
Thus, this and other studies demonstrate that low levels of Fluoride can harm the brain, especially in the Fetus.
Certainly, the Precautionary Principle applies.
From an international leader in environmental poison research:
“Adverse effects from fluoride additives to drinking water have not been fully considered in the past, and the new study from Mexico, along with substantial evidence from other countries, now shows that fluoride toxicity to brain development must be taken seriously.”
- Dr. Philippe Grandjean, Chair of Environmental Medicine at the University of Southern Denmark and Adjunct Professor of Environmental Health at Harvard School of Public Health regarding Bashash et al. (Sept 2017)
From the Director of the US National Toxicology Program:
"There have been similar findings related to exposure to fluoride and IQ from children in China. So this observation or association has been reported before.” - Dr. Linda Birnbaum, Director of the National Institute of Environmental Health Science regarding Bashash et al. (Sept 2017)
From a pediatrician who studies links between environmental exposures and health problems:
“This is a very well-conducted study, and it raises serious concerns about fluoride supplementation in water” - Dr. Leonardo Trasande, pediatrician & associate professor at New York University Langone Health on Bashash et al., (Sept 2017)
Taken from Medical News Today ...
"This is significant," explains Dr. Hu, "because previous studies estimated exposures based on neighborhood measurements of drinking water fluoride levels, which are indirect and much less precise measures of exposure."
As the study authors conclude, "[...] our findings, combined with evidence from existing animal and human studies, reinforce the need for additional research on potential adverse effects of fluoride, particularly in pregnant women and children, and to ensure that the benefits of population-level fluoride supplementation outweigh any potential risks."
Christine Till and Ashley Malin are researchers listed in the Three New Studies mentioned above.
They are also both authors on this ADHD study, entitled “Exposure to fluoridated water and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder prevalence among children and adolescents in the United States: an ecological association”.
Utilizing U.S. data, they found that States with a "prevalence of artificial water fluoridation in 1992 significantly positively predicted state prevalence of ADHD” in following years … “even after controlling for socioeconomic status”.

The following video was uploaded September 24, 2018.
OVERVIEW OF FLUORIDE
Dentist, Dr. David Kennedy addresses a room full of ‘natural’ Dentists who desire to use the least toxic methods of Dentistry.
Dentist, Dr. Cole from Austin, TX introduces Kennedy and is also in a video as part of Kennedy’s presentation. Dr. Cole helped in the Dallas anti-fluoridation campaign with a video which was shown before the Dallas City Council.
Here are some highlights from the video…
Dental teeth disfigurement and stains
Kennedy discusses dental fluorosis. Dental fluorosis is very common. White spots on teeth, easily stained teeth because they are more porous, or brown splotches, pits, fissures, easily cracked teeth are some of the symptoms.
Close to half of the folks in the Dallas metroplex have dental fluorosis.
African Americans and other minorities have more cases of dental fluorosis that their Caucasian counterparts per the CDC. Two alleles on the genetic traits is probably the factor.
…By the way, the CDC tried to cover-up the minority aspect from their own studies until activists discovered the cover-up – see the Homepage of this website.
Swallowing fluoride causes dental fluorosis. Nothing else causes dental fluorosis except for fluoride.
Internal ingestion of fluoride causes a non-normal formation of teeth growth. Teeth even tend to erupt later than normal.
Look at your teeth. Do your teeth have any white specks? Do they stain easily? (Fluorosis makes teeth more porous.)
Have you ever cracked a tooth? (Fluorosis makes teeth and bones more brittle.)
Are you spending lots of money seeing the Dentist? Typically, when someone has dental fluorosis, they can end up spending many thousands of dollars over a lifetime to cosmetically keep their their smile looking nice...all those thousands of dollars, because they swallowed too much fluoride.

Tummy Ache and Gastrointestinal Problems
In the last three minutes of the video, Dr Kennedy tells a story of how someone had “heartburn” and stomach aches which were caused by fluoride. Often, this is one of the first symptoms which people (and dogs) notice from ingesting fluoride. See the Dr. Hans Moolenburgh video below under the Melissa Gallico section.
“The National Academies of Sciences Engineering Medicine” have a 500 page scientific overview of fluoride.
The linked section describes, in repeating detail, how fluoride can cause gastrointestinal issues.
LAWSUITS in Texas are mentioned in the Dr. Kennedy video around the 26 minute mark.
Here is one law firm which has a section for collecting information on a Fluoride Class Action Lawsuit
Thyroid and Teeth
Many people are aware that swallowing Fluoride can affect Thyroid function.
Several studies showed how as little as 0.3 to 0.5 mg/L in fluoridated water could impair Thyroid function.
(Kheradpisheh et al., 2018; Bachinskii et al., 1985)
Thyroid problems can cause many dental and oral problems.
Crooked teeth, wide spread teeth, teeth too close, non-normal tooth eruption / formation, more prone to cavities, mouth problems, etc.
In this 6 minute video, Dr. Bob DeMaria mentions very common symptoms of subpar Thyroid function which includes teeth spacing.
This article section, Thyroid Abnormalities can Affect Your Dental and Oral Health, explains some of the oral symptoms resulting from Thyroid issues.
"If your child is experiencing weakness in the jaw and teeth, unusual gaps in teeth growth, or crowded and jammed groups of teeth, then you may have to consider having your child checked for Hypothyroidism.
… irregular teeth growth among children…
… Minus the irregular teeth growth, hypothyroidism affects adults’ oral health in a similar manner. People with hypothyroidism are more prone to infection; their cells and tissues may not heal quickly. So they have greater chances of contracting oral and dental problems such as: swollen and bleeding gums, frequent jaw spasms, fast decaying teeth which lead to grave cavities and teeth falling off. In severe cases, it can cause TMJ syndrome…
… People who have an over active thyroid may experience fast decaying molars, sensitive teeth that hurt on sudden temperature change, and pain in the jaw...."
Dr Amy Myers, MD discusses teeth and Thyroid conditions, including avoiding substances like Fluoride. LINK
"The Many Dental Triggers of Hashimoto’s" are discussed by Dr. Izabella Wentz. LINK
Among many great, local Dallas Doctors who oppose water fluoridation is Dr. Maryann Prewitt of “HealthWellnessMD” who specializes in handling Thyroid issues naturally. She is an Obstetrician-gynecologist. She also offers the skinFIT MedSpa.
Aluminum and Silicic Acid (Silica) in Tap Water
Everyone has stepped in a mud puddle. It gets pretty murky with all kinds of stuff floating around. Water Treatment facilities use a variety of chemicals (Flocculation and Coagulation) to help remove all the crud and dirt which comes off of the lake water. Aluminum is often a primary ingredient used to remove the crud. There are not too many other viable choices for ‘crud removal’.
Thus, aluminum ends up in our tap water.
Aluminum plays no human beneficial biological role whatsoever. Many professionals consider aluminum to be toxic in the body.
The aluminum-chemical industry, much like the fluoride-chemical industry, quietly exerts strong pressures to downplay the adverse health effects. Anyone who thoroughly researches the history of these industries discovers this. These industries often quietly enlist other vested interest groups and government agencies to influence public perception with propaganda. Scientists studying aluminum and Fluoride researchers are often impaired by industry and their vested interests (e.g. National Institute of Dental Research)

Fluoride and Aluminum
Dr. Chris Exley discusses some of the mechanisms of aluminum toxicity. At the 22:28 mark he talks about how Fluoride increases the bioavailability of Aluminum. QUEUED video (2 minutes) https://youtu.be/LJ7hmO2UzIc?t=22m28s
We all know that Fluoride is extremely difficult to filter out of tap water. This aspect alone is alarming, because Fluoride can easily penetrate the blood brain barrier. The body cannot ‘filter’ Fluoride from entering the brain like it can with some other toxic chemicals. Thus, Fluoride might carry Aluminium into the brain.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s website, “Children’s Health Defense”, contains many scientific citations and facts about aluminum.
For most vaccines, aluminum is added despite its toxicity.
Basically, the aluminum prompts the body’s immune system to go into hyperdrive. If at the time, a person is exposed to something like peanut oil or eggs (in the vaccines), or rag weed pollen or mite dust, then the body’s immune system targets that category as an “invader”. Thus allergies.
QUEUED VIDEO (2 minutes)
It’s not to say that all allergies are caused that way, but certainly the aluminum mechanism might cause them in some people or animals.
Vaccine containing aluminum often causes “granulomas” – cyst-like nodules of white blood cells loaded with the neurotoxic metal aluminum.

Anatomy of a Science Study Censorship by Celeste McGovern
featured at Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s “Children’s Health Defense”
Silica in the form of Silicic Acid (bioactive and bioavailable orthosilicic acid - Si(OH)(4) )
Most of our bottled water and city water is filtered, which removes many minerals. Our ancestors naturally acquired silica (silicic acid) from drinking water, because the water was not filtered.
Silica has many health benefits.
-- It helps with brain function, mental alertness and Attention Deficit Disorder. It impedes aluminum from reacting in the brain and also helps the body to excrete aluminum, thus addressing Alzheimer’s.
-- It helps to address aches and pains, along with arthritis and bone integrity. Silica gives strength to tissues in the body. Silica is essential for proper body growth.
-- It helps hair, skin, nails and collagen. Collagen also is the “holder of body energy” located between cells. A baby’s skin is very soft because of the silica content. Older people tend to have much less silica in their skin. In fact, silica is needed by a baby to “preform” the bone matrix.
-- HEART and arteries – Silica improves the integrity of the arteries to such an extent that it can be a strong factor for eliminating plaque on the arteries.
-- Silica is needed to make many body chemicals.

Aluminum Detoxification with Silica Rich Water
Some mineral waters have a high silica content. Scientific studies have shown that waters which have a high silicic acid (about 30 mg or more per liter) content effectively and noticeably remove aluminum from the body.
Quantity of silicic acid is important for effective aluminum excretion. A low quantity of silicic acid is not enough to effectively 'grab' aluminum and carry it out of the body.
As this study points out "...Silicon in mineral water (and indeed most potable waters) is found mainly as silicic acid (Si(OH)4)[aq], which in the gut is immediately absorbed and enters the blood before being excreted in the urine via the kidney. Mirroring the urinary excretion of silicic acid is aluminum and this close relationship suggests that silicic acid in some way facilitates the excretion of aluminum via the kidney. The mechanism of action remains to be elucidated but it is thought to involve a pulse in silicic acid concentration in the blood, which facilitates the passage of low-molecular weight forms of aluminum across the glomeruli of the kidney..."
Silicic Acid immediately follows water molecules through the gut wall and into the bloodstream where (given enough quantity) it forms a complex with aluminium called an hydroxyaluminosilicate. This form of aluminium can be easily filtered from the blood by the kidney.
Dr. Christopher Exley has been focused on studying aluminum and also silica for more than 20 years.
Read his article: Why everyone should drink silicon-rich mineral water
It should be noted that the form of silica in water is the bioactive and bioavailable orthosilicic acid (Si(OH)4)[aq].
This is different than other forms of silica. It is even different from the forms of silica found in supplements.
Example: Orthosilicic acid easily flows with water. Plants will take it up along with water, and we often see a conversion or condensation take place with a harder form of silica depositing within the plant.
The herb Horsetail is famous for its silica content.
However, "biosilicifiers, such as horsetails, harvest silicic acid from solutions which are far from saturation and deposit it as amorphous hydrated silica. … condensation of silicic acid into silica". Science Article
This is not to say that herbs, foods or supplements containing silica are not beneficial.
But they may be limited on their ability to help excrete aluminum from the body.
For example: If the label says silicon dioxide (SiO2), this is not the same as the bioactive and bioavailable orthosilicic acid (Si(OH)4)[aq] found in silica rich water. However, fresh horsetail herb may contain about 5-8% silicic acid, before the silicic acid condenses into silica.
Silica Rich Water
Many large corporations also have a stake in the water business, especially bottled water. Bloomberg Business and USA Today have written non-flattering stories about Nestle and its water business. Newsweek writes about the big companies gobbling up water supplies with shifty methods. The entire country of Bolivia revolted when a very large American company took control of their water.
When Dr. Chris Exley was doing his research on silica rich water, he used a European brand. In the beginning, the European bottled water company was excited to assist with the research on aluminum excretion and attach their name to it...until the corporation which owned the water company found out. The corporation nixxed the signed contract because it would "make aluminum look bad".
Another silica rich bottled water ("Acilis" and "Spritzer") came forward to lend their name and funds towards helping with the research.
At this time, it seems this water is only available in the U.K., Europe, Malaysia and a few other countries.
Throughout the World, there are various sources of silica rich water. Dr. Silica in Japan boasts that it has a high content.
In the United States, a common bottled water brand with a high silica content is Fiji Water (93 mg per liter).
