- Ninety-nine percent of fluoridated water ends up on your lawn and in your toilet, where it’s really an environmental pollutant. According to the EPA, it’s illegal to release hexafluorosilicic acid (fluoride) into rivers and lakes or release the parent gases into the atmosphere, but if the public water utilities buy it and purposely pour it in your drinking water, it's no longer classified as a pollutant
- Fluoridation provides an uncontrolled fluoride dose to everyone who drinks it, without regard for age, weight, or health status. Young children and the elderly are disproportionately affected by its adverse effects
- According to the CDC, 41 percent of American adolescents have dental fluorosis due to overexposure to fluoride. Swallowing fluoride can also cause weakened bones, bone cancer, hyperactivity and/or lethargy, lowered thyroid function, lowered IQ, dementia, kidney issue, arthritis and more
- After more than a year of secretive planning, fluoride lobbyists convinced the Portland city council to add fluoride to their water supply. Luckily, the citizens of Portland gathered enough signatures to force the decision to a vote on May 21, 2013. Please take action to support this measure
