SIGN THIS PETITION IF YOU ARE AGAINST FLUORIDE IN PUBLIC WATER SUPPLIES!!!!!!!!!
The main goal I have in life is to get fluoride out of out city's water supplies. Being from Portland, OR, I spent the last two months spreading awareness and fighting against adding hydrofluorosilic acid to our water...WE WON. While I was researching the topic, I came across way too many negative health effects associated with swallowing fluoride. One of the major facts is that fluoride drastically reduces the IQ of children (according to 36+ different studies including Harvard reports http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/news/features/fluoride-childrens-health-grandjean-choi/). Further on, it does not fight tooth decay like originally thought when ingested. Studies show swallowing fluoride leads to osteosarcoma (bone cancer), lowered thyroid functioning, arthritis, brain damage, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, kidney disease, lessened male fertility, skeletal fluorosis (excess fluoride built up in bones causing weakened bones and easy fractures), acute toxicity, and it builds up in our brains pineal gland. Also, over exposure to fluroide causes dental fluorosis (staining of the teeth), and dips in tooth enamel.
The Shanghai Polymet Commodities Ltd. company in China (where we get the fluoride) descibes the toxin as this (hydrofluorosilicic acid is what is added to water supplies, sodium fluoride is in toothpaste):
Fluosilicic Acid / hydrofluosilicic acid:Property: Colorless, transparent and smoky liquid with penetrating odor; highly acidic; soluble in water and volatile; with disinfecting action; corrosive to glass, ceramics, lead and other metals; highly corrosive to human skin and harmful to people’s respiratory organs; keep it in a container made of plastics. Another industrial fluoride supplier from China describes its sodium fluoride as:…used as anti-corrosion agent in wood, medical corrosion, fusing in welding… manufacture of rimmed steel, treatment of hides and skins for leather industry, adhesive preservative, purification and coloring flux in the melting of light metals.

Here are a few statistics involving fluoridated cities:In (fluoridated) Detroit, 91% of 5-year-old black children have tooth decay, with 42% suffering from “severe” decay.In (fluoridated) New York City, 34% of pre-school black children from low-income families have rampant tooth decay, with a staggering 6.4 cavities per affected child.In (fluoridated) Chicago, 64% of third graders have tooth decay.In San Antonio, annual head start surveys show that fluoridation failed to reduce the high rate of tooth decay among the city’s head start children. After eight years of fluoridation, the tooth decay rate did not decrease–it increased.Untreated tooth decay in fluoridated urban areas has led to several deaths, including a 12-year-old child in Prince Georges Maryland, and a 24-year-old father in Cincinnati.

Also, it has never been approved by the FDA.

People should sign this petition because, we the people, have the right to choose what we do and don't want to consume; it should not be forced upon us. We should not be poisoned every day, we should not be lied to and played for fools. We deserve what is best for our health and well being, not surrender to rich corporations. No one should be forced to have fluoride, and over 70% of American's are, through their city water supply. If I get enough signatures, I will take the petition to political offices around the NW region, encouraging politicians to fight towards getting fluoride away from our water.
