March 4, 2014Dear Citizen for Health,As a supporter of CFH, we know you work to stay informed about the issues that affect your ability to maintain your health and wellness. We emailed you last week to draw your attention once again to the potential negative health effects of water fluoridation, and are working to bring you resources for staying informed, as well as opportunities to take action. There are reasons to be concerned: –“Fluoride amounts to public murder on a grand scale.” A shocking quote from Dr. Dean Burk, former head of the National Cancer Institute’s Cytochemistry Sector, co-discoverer of biotin and publisher of more than 250 scientific articles. Why was he so concerned about the link between fluoride and cancer? Watch an interview with Dr. Burk here. –Residents of Bernalillo County, home of Albuquerque, take note: Your Water Utility Authority Board is considering a reversal of a decision from 2011 to stop adding fluoride to drinking water. The move would cost taxpayers $400,000 initially, and $100,000 per year thereafter – read more here. –And we noted in our last email that the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) own National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory says that fluoride is a chemical with “substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity”. We think this bears mentioning again. And often. The good news is that people all over the world are taking this fight to the grassroots, and we here in the U.S. must follow the lead set by nine states proposing anti-fluoridation bills last year. Stay tuned for more on this issue, and for how you can add your voice to the chorus calling for an end to forced fluoridation of our drinking water.
