If you live in the US here is the
THREE STEP PROGRAM TO STOP FLUORIDATION IN YOUR COMMUNITY
STEP 1. Write this letter to your local water utility:
I am very concerned about the quality of my water. Would you please provide to me on your letterhead a reference to one long-term toxicological study done on the product that you use to fluoridate our water supply, which supports the certification required by ANSI/NSF Standard 60 (see paragraph 3.2.1)?
Note: do not give him or her your phone number. You want this in writing and on their letterhead. For your own information, no such study exists, which makes what they are doing illegal.
If they do reply take it to one of your councilors and advance to step 2. If they refuse to reply, then ask your councilor to get a reply (in writing) on your behalf.
STEP 2. When your councilor is suitably shocked by their answer - or puzzled by their unwillingness to respond - this is the time to give your councilor the Professionals' Statement calling for an end to fluoridation worldwide, now signed by over 2000 professionals, with the number rising by the day. Hopefully, by the time you get to Step 2 you will have in your hands a copy of our new DVD, "Professional Perspectives on the Fluoridation Debate" and you should give that to the councilor as well.
STEP 3. Now that you have softened him or her up with the notion that this practice is not legal (by their own limited standards) nor safe, it is time to throw the third punch. Tell him or her that when they stop fluoridation they are going to SAVE MONEY! That message is going to ring very loudly in 2009.
If you have any trouble negotiating these three steps please contact either myself or Maureen.
If you live outside the US you might wish to find out if your country has similar regulations on the chemicals they add to water.
