EPA Unions Call For Fluoridation Moratorium

Although some groups believe the anniversary of fluoridation in America is something worth celebrating, they don't include EPA employee unions, representing 7,000 environmental and public health workers, who have called for a moratorium on fluoride. (Read NTEU Chapter 280's letters and position on fluoride at this link.

These 11 unions have asked Congress to consider a moratorium -- pending a review on the risks and rewards of fluoridation -- and the EPA to recognize exposure to fluoride may cause cancer. The announcement comes on the heels of a hidden Harvard study recently discovered by the Fluoride Action Network that found exposure to fluoridated tap water was responsible for an increased risk of bone cancer in boys, ages 10-19.

Of course, many towns saw the same news report, but still see nothing wrong with fluoridation, and claim few want that to change. Interestingly enough, few European countries fluoridate their water. Ever wonder why?

  • Fluoride increases the tumor growth and the general cancer rate.
  • Fluoride has been linked to cancer, low IQs in children, genetic disorders and muscle degeneration.
  • Fluoride inhibits the formation of antibodies in the blood.

To make your feelings known about fluoridation, I urge you to visit the Fluoride Action Network's Web site and sign their online petition and send a letter to your Congressman.
