Isreal soon to ban fluoride

Sunday, August 25, 2013 by: Carolanne Wright

(NaturalNews) Unlike the United States, which continues to poison its population with fluoridated water, the Supreme Court of Israel has ordered the country to stop adding the toxin to all water supplies by next year. Considering fluoride is linked with decreased thyroid and kidney function, infertility, lowered intelligence, impaired bone strength, heart disease and elevated cancer risk, the Israeli government has taken a major step toward protecting the health of its citizens. Yet, for those who live in one of the few developed nations that insist on fluoridating the water supply, effective measures can be taken to protect oneself.

Water fluoridation unusual around the world
While it might seem downright miraculous to Americans that a country would completely refuse water fluoridation, truth be told, widespread use of the toxin rarely happens internationally. The United States is one of only seven nations that fluoridates more than 50 percent of its total water supply (Ireland, Malaysia, Australia, Colombia, New Zealand and Singapore are the other six). Canada just slips under the radar at 40 percent. Asia and a majority of the European Union have rejected the practice, and for good reason. Christopher Bryson, author of “The Fluoride Deception,” classifies fluoride as “the most damaging environmental pollutant of the cold war.”

In the article, “Israel to Stop Adding Fluoride to Water Supplies in 2014 Due to Health Concerns,” Paul Connett, PhD, writes:

“Zealous fluoridation promoters try to convince the American public that ‘everyone drinks fluoridated water.’ But the opposite is true. An overwhelming number of countries do not fluoridate, including 97% of the European population. In fact, over half the people in the world drinking fluoridated water live in the US. We are the odd ones out. Fluoridation is an outdated, unscientific, failed public health blunder. What I find remarkable here is that Health Minister German has been able to escape the unscientific belief system on fluoridation that traps so many public health bureaucracies in fluoridated countries.”

If you happen to live in a country that fluoridates its municipal water supply, don’t despair. Several reliable methods help shield against exposure and subsequent health consequences.

The Time is Now!

Come out tonight for a screening of The Fluoride Deception (bring snacks!) and planning meeting! We will start the screening at 7pm at the Free Thinker House (2620 Truxillo St.) and the meeting will follow! We encourage you to bring any questions you may have regarding water fluoridation as well as any ideas you may have to expedite the end of water fluoridation in Houston!

In the near future we will begin ongoing visits to council members until we have had sit down meetings with every single one, however there is much work to be done before we get to the point of visiting them! We also want to jump start our efforts to voice our community’s concern at City Council meetings on Tuesdays!

It is also a goal of Fluoride Free Houston to educate the public about the controversy surrounding fluoride as we have found that many Houstonians are either unaware of water fluoridation as a whole, or have never considered the consequences. Whether you care about the health effects, the environmental concerns, the wasteful spending, or the forced medication aspect, we would love for you to join us at one of the upcoming summer festivals around Houston to help spread the word about fluoride!

Hope to see you tonight!

HFT Media interviews Annise Parker on the Food Sharing Ordinance and Water Fluoridation

YouTube Preview Image

Annise Parker has obviously still failed to even read any of the documents that members of Fluoride Free Houston have provided to her, insisting that “fluoride saves people’s teeth”. We will not stop this fight until the free people of Houston cease to be carelessly poisoned. There are mountains of evidence against water fluoridation and we intend to continue to bring her information, either until those very mountains are rising in her office or until she opens her own eyes to see them herself.

As always, in the meantime you should seek alternative drinking/cooking water sources and shower less :P Detoxes are great too!

April Events, Get Involved!

It’s been a while since we’ve all gotten together to discuss the various routes we are taking to remove fluoride from the City of Houston’s water, we think it’s about time our snowball shows some growth. We will be hosting ongoing infojams regarding fluoridated water at your local grocery store’s water aisle in the coming months :) We are also holding the next Fluoride Free Houston meeting on April 29th at 7pm at the Free Thinker House located at 2620 Truxillo St. If anyone would like Flouride Free Houston Flyers, donated by the Houston Free Thinkers please message our Facebook group and we can arrange a meetup!

Hope to see you at the meeting!

EPA Scientists, medical experts fired for opposing water fluoridation

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) Politics, not science, is what continues to drive the water fluoridation agenda today, and it was always the impetus behind the original passage of corrupt water fluoridation guidelines established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) more than 50 years ago. But many EPA scientists, it turns out, as well as other medical and scientific experts, have bravely come out in opposition to water fluoridation over the years, a move that for many cost them their jobs and careers.

Many of those directly responsible for compiling and evaluating safety data on the health effects of fluoride, in fact, observed very early on that the chemical waste product is not at all beneficial for human health. Not only has fluoride never been shown with any sort of scientific rigor to prevent tooth decay in any tangible way, but it has actually been shown to damage teeth, as well as harm vital organs, cognitive ability, glandular function, and bone structure, among other things.

Back in 1985 when the EPA proposed doubling the maximum allowable level of fluoride to be added to water, a large number of EPA’s own scientists, legal experts, and advisory personnel, not to mention a panel of scientists tasked with evaluating fluoride for the Surgeon General’s office, came out in vehement opposition to the proposal. Fluoride, revealed the science, was not safe at the proposed levels, and should be further evaluated — many actually called for an immediate moratorium on fluoride.

But their concerns were ultimately ignored, and the EPA decided to move forward with fluoride against the recommendations of its own scientists, who correctly pointed out that even preexisting levels of fluoride in water put people at risk of both dental and skeletal fluorosis. One outspoken opponent of fluoride, Dr. William Marcus, who was then chief toxicologist for the EPA’s Office of Drinking Water, was actually fired for refusing to back down and basically shut up about the dangers of fluoride.

The Duplicity of Fluoride Revealed

““We aren’t going away and we want to make sure the mayor knows it.” -Derrick Broze, Fluoride Free Houston

In an effort to move away from the preconceived ideas and conspiracy theories associated with fluoridation of the water system, Fluoride Free Houston is inviting the community out for a potluck and a screening of the documentary “The Fluoride Deception” by author Christopher Bryson at The Real School Friday February 1 at 7:00 p.m.”

Potluck Dinner! Screening! Free Press Houston Interview!

Hello Houston Family!

Fluoride Free Houston will be hosting a potluck community dinner and film screening for those who are interested in getting involved or learning more about why we are opposed to water fluoridation.

On Friday February 1st we will be meeting at 7 pm at The Real School located at 2805 Wichita. Please feel free to bring a small dish if you can. If not, we will have some food provided!

We will be having a short discussion on FFH’s history and our goals. We will be eating around 7:30, and will begin the screening at 8pm. “The Fluoride Deception” is based off of Christpher Bryson’s book of the same title.

“Bryson marshals an impressive amount of research to demonstrate fluoride’s harmfulness, the ties between leading fluoride researchers and the corporations who funded and benefi ted from their research, and what he says is the duplicity with which fluoridation was sold to the people. The result is a compelling challenge to the reigning dental orthodoxy, which should provoke renewed scientific scrutiny and public debate.”
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

We are inviting all the Houston City Council members and the mayor. At this point we have support from two city council members, Helena Brown and Jack Christie. There is a possibility of a guest speaker as well.

There will be copies of the documentary for free, and bumper stickers by Calm Hound for sale for $7.

We are excited to reach out to those who are concerned about heath, the environment, civil liberties, or the cost Fluoride. Please invite your family and friends!

Also, look out for our interview with Free Press Houston highlighting the efforts of FFH, it will be featured on their blog next week!

Scientists Discover New Way to Remove Fluoride from Drinking Water

Andrew Puhanic, Contributor
Activist Post

Around the world, it is estimated that tens of millions of people are affected by both dental and skeletal fluorosis. In many cases, it is the addition of fluoride into drinking water supplies by governments that is the primary cause of both dental and skeletal fluorosis.

Common techniques used for defluoridation are coagulation-precipitation, membrane process and ion exchange.

The problem with these three techniques is that they are either too expensive or they further pollute the water.

Researchers from the National University of Sciences and Technology in Pakistan have discovered an effective method to remove fluoride from drinking water that is less expensive than conventional filtration processes and is safe to use.

The study, published in the Journal of Chemistry, concluded that the removal of fluoride from drinking water using modified immobilized activated alumina (MIAA) resulted in a removal efficiency that was 1.35 times higher than normal immobilized activated alumina.

The Fluoride Free Movement Grows

Hello Friends and Family! We at Fluoride Free Houston want to apologize for the lack of updates on the website. We are still working diligently on this issue, continuing to attend city council meetings,as well as outreach in the community. Many of us are full time parents and activists with other causes as well. If you notice a lack of updates on here please be sure to check our facebook page!

Speaking of facebook, one search of the words “Fluoride Free” and it becomes evident that the Fluoride Free Movement has been growing! Everyday new groups are being created while other cities vote to remove fluoride altogether! Most recently we had Wichita, Kansas achieve a historic victory! This movement even goes beyond America into Canada! Check out this report after a Court Injunction was filed against the City of Hamilton for Water Fluoridation.

In Houston we have been attending city council meetings, holding fundraisers, promoting online, began a petition campaign, and selling FFH bumper stickers. We have the amazing opportunity to work with supportive city council members on this important issue. We want to continue gaining momentum and we need your help!

We are planning a gathering for Fluoride Free Houston in either December or January.  The idea is to have a potluck dinner, film screening, and at the same time coordinate with those who may want to take on a more active role in this effort.  Please let us know what day of the week works best for you!

At a press conference on Earth Day 2012  Houston Mayor Annise Parker said, “”Having a sustainable attitude is more than about purchasing vehicles or initiating energy savings in city buildings. It’s more about rethinking everything that we do,”. Recently, FFH member/citizen journalist Derrick Broze was able to ask Mayor Annise Parker if she was ready to rethink her policies on fluoride.

The Mayor seems to believe the CDC’s recommendations trump the people’s desire to not be fluoridated. Regardless of the apparent lack of concern by Ms. Parker Fluoride Free Houston remains committed to working with the city on this very important issue. Please stand with us and help Houston become Fluoride Free.

Thank You

- FFH
