End Fluoridation of Municipal Water

ABSTRACT
Water is the most essential nutrient involved in every physical function, and makes up 75% of a person’s total body weight; assisting to maintain body temperature, metabolize body fat, aids in digestion, lubricates and cushions organs, transports nutrients, and flushes toxins from the body. People should drink at least sixty-four ounces per day, and if you exercise or are overweight, even more. Sources of water to re-supply the body come from the kitchen faucet, school drinking fountains, bottled water, re-constituted juices, and soft drinks. All of these sources, except homes on a well system, use treated water produced by local municipal treatment plants. The treatment process includes filtering, liming, carbonation, chlorination, and fluoridation. All are necessary to make the water potable and safe, except for the addition of Sodium Fluoride; added to change the human body and not the water itself. It is time for the US, and the few remaining fluoridating countries, to recognize that fluoridation has serious risks that far outweigh any minor benefits, violates sound medical ethics, and denies freedom of choice, and should be halted until conclusive evidence is presented to justify this practice.

Water in its purest form consists of two parts hydrogen bonded to one part oxygen. It covers 75% of the earth and is purified through nature’s continuous cycle of evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and percolation (Pollack Laboratory, 2010). There is no more or no less water on the earth since the beginning of time; humans drink the same water the dinosaurs drank hundreds of millions of years ago. Water is the most essential nutrient involved in every physical function, and makes up 75% of a person’s total body weight;...
