On December 7 and 8, the EPA's National Drinking Water Advisory Council held its annual meeting at their headquarters office on Constitutional Avenue in Washington, DC. After sitting through lengthy discussions all day on December 7 (in which the word "fluoride" was not mentioned once), Bill Hirzy PhD, Ellen Connett and myself (Paul Connett) finally got our chance to speak during the Public Comment period on Friday morning, Dec 8.

The fluoride fiasco in tablet form– over 40 years of harm
Another victory has been won in the fight to protect the public against water supplies intentionally poisoned with artificial fluoride chemicals, this time in Woodland, Washington, a city located just 30 miles north of Portland, Oregon. As reported by The Daily News online, the Woodland City Council recently voted 6-to-1 to stop adding synthetic fluoride chemicals to its public water supply after it was determined that the outmoded practice is both unsafe and ineffective.
Opposition to water fluoridation started in the 1940's. Now, the number of experts opposing the practice appears to be at all-time high.
Milwaukee alderman Jim Bohl wanted to stop fluoridation in his city. But he had to settle for a compromise. The city's aldermen recently voted to reduce the fluoride level from 1.1 to .7 parts per million.
Water fluoridation has been hailed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as "one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century," for its purported ability to prevent tooth decay.
Every day of the week, most Americans, Australians, New Zealanders, and Irish are exposed to an influence that can be a cause of serious health problems: the addition of chemical fluoride to our drinking water.
