GET IT OUT OF OUR CITY & COUNTY WATER!
On July 2, 1997 the union that consists of and represents all of the biologists, toxicologists, chemists, engineers and attorneys at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) headquarters in Washington, D.C., voted unanimously to take a stand against water fluoridation. They cited scientific evidence of fluoride's link to increased risk of hip fracture, cancers, bone pathologies, genetic mutation, and neurological impairment, including lower IQ in children. Recent science also links fluoride to Alzheimer's disease, kidney damage, chronic fatigue symptoms and sleep disorders. Dental fluorosis, a permanent chalky mottling of the teeth and a window to fluoride overdose of the entire body, is on the rise, even in non-fluoridated communities. Fluoride is more toxic than lead, only slightly less toxic than arsenic.
I believe that fluoridation is outdated, unscientific, violates medical ethics and denies freedom of choice. Its serious risk outweigh its minor (if any) benefits. None of the under signed will cast a vote for any candidate who does not agree to remove fluoride form the Collier County water system.
