The practice water fluoridation in the United States has been under growing scrutiny for years by a public that has become conscious of the fact adding toxic chemicals which are proven to be harmful to human health and children’s development to public water is medication without consent.

For over a year, California's capital city had been poisoning the public water supply – in secret – with chemicals that are known carcinogens, and that have never been approved for use in the water treatment process.
On Wednesday June 17, a quorum of the Austin City Council, including Vice Chair Don Zimmerman, Ann Kitchen and Ellen Troxclair, met to consider a resolution to stop water fluoridation in Austin, Texas, a city known for its independent thinkers.
Researchers from the University of Kent, a public research university based in the United Kingdom, conducted the latest and considerably groundbreaking study on the health effects potentially caused by adding fluoride to the public's water.
Nearly one year ago today, local activists stood before the Austin City Council protesting the renewal of the city's $1 million dollar contract with their fluoride supplier. It wasn't the first time Austinites spoke out against water fluoridation, as the city has been dumping this industrial byproduct into the water system since the 1970s.
