Fluoride Free Houston! Let’s make our drinking water safe!

You have a great smile“Over $1 million a year goes to forcing medication upon the population of the City of Houston through tap water Fluoridation. This is an effort to end the use of Fluoride”

Do I have good news!  A group of courageous, interested Houstonians want to help all of us to be healthier.  [See their purpose above.]  They have decided to do something, not just talk, about improving the safety of our drinking water, and, oh by the way, save our city lots of money.  Brianna Moore, Cody Adams, and Derrick Broze have formed Fluoride Free Houston to stop fluoridation of Houston’s water supply.  They began having meetings in June 2012. Their next meeting is August 6th (see below for details).  They already have 15 to 20 people attending their meetings, and, with your help, maybe we can get more people involved.  Let’s support the effort by liking their Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/FluorideFreeHouston.  The group’s website: http://www.fluoridefreehouston.org/

From Brianna Moore, here are the three approaches they plan to use to reach the goal of freeing Houston water from fluoridation.

1) Fluoridation is forced medication:  Fluoride is the only substance that is provided to an entire populace without knowing if everyone needs it. This takes away our right to choose our own medical needs

2) Health issues: Although fluoride was once thought to be beneficial to teeth, upon a closer look, it has been found that fluoride is only beneficial when applied topically, NOT ingested. In fact, on many toothpaste tubes it says that if you swallow the toothpaste (containing fluoride) you should immediately call poison control.

3) Also, the money factor: The city of Houston will spend over 5 million dollars in the next five years to add hydrofluorosilic acid to the water supply, I think that we could find MUCH better ways to spend our residents’ money.

Fluoride Free Houston’s next meeting:

Date:  August 6th
Time:  7:30 pm
Location:  The Real School aka Dragon Valley
2805 Wichita
Houston, TX 77054

On August 7th the group plans to present their resolution to the Houston City Council.

For more information about the health problems associated with fluoridation of municipal water supplies, see my previous post: How Much Fluoride is Too Much Fluoride: Who Really Benefits?

Update July 18, 2014:  A member of Fluoride Free Houston has posted an update on the status of municipal water in the U.S.  He says that Texas has many active groups campaigning to remove fluoride from the water system.

    Even the EPA scientists union opposes water fluoridation.

    Read the 2006 National Research Council’s (NRC) report on water fluoridation:

    (Free to read entire 500 page book online)

    Doesn’t look like Harvard is too pleased with the practice either:
    http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/news/features/feat­­­­­ures/fluoride-childrens-he­a­l­t­h­-grandjean-choi.html

    They concluded with:
    “Fluoride seems to fit in with lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain drain,” Grandjean says. “The effect of each toxicant may seem small, but the combined damage on a population scale can be serious, especially because the brain power of the next generation is crucial to all of us.”

    Dr. P.H. Phillips, biochemist, University of Wisconsin states,
    “Fluoride is an accumulative poison which accumulates in the skeletal structures, including the teeth, when the body is exposed to small daily intakes of this element. …it is like lead accumulation in the bone until saturation occurs and then lead poisoning sets in.”

  3. Hi, I’m Donna Westfall, a Councilwoman in Crescent City, Calif. For the past 4 years my constituents and I have been battling small town corruption including the lies and astroturfing from the Calif Dental Assn that fluoride is safe and effective.

    We were successful in getting a moratorium on the Nov 6th ballot asking for HFSA to be removed until our supplier can prove it’s both safe and effective; along with toxicological reports and a list of all contaminants….. which they won’t do because I’ve already asked.

    Please sign and circulate my petition below created with sign on/move on.

    Thank you and good luck to all of us.

    Hi,
    I created a petition to The California State House, The California State Senate, and Governor Jerry Brown which says:
    “Water fluoridation is one of the biggest frauds of the 20th and 21st century. It is making us sick and slowly poisoning us to death. It denies us our civil rights, we’re being medicated without our consent and we have no listing of all the side effects to pick up from any agency. The Dental Association lobby groups are keeping palms greased so that elected officials, and responsible parties are turning a blind eye to the harm being done.”

    Good luck on your resolution to Houston City Council! You should reach out to CM Helena Brown if you haven’t already. I’ve worked with her on some issue-based projects in the past, and I believe she will be a strong supporter of this resolution.
