York State Department of Health compared results in Newburgh, New York,
which has been fluoridated for 50 years, with Kingston, New York, which
has never been fluoridated. In Newburgh there were more cavities, discoloring
and dental floursis.

Facts on the Biological Effects of Fluorides
-Exposure to high
fluoride concentrations in drinking water is associated with decreased
of long term administration of sodium fluoride on plasma calcium level
in relation to intestinal absorption and urinary excretion in rabbits.

June 19-21, 1998, The International Academy of Oral Medicine
and Toxicology (IAOMT ) cohosted a symposium as a final step in developing
a public health goal (PHG) for ingested fluoride.
We firmly agree with the findings
of the November 1997 Canadian Dental Association conference on fluoride
drops and tablets which found no reliable scientific evidence of significant
dental benefit from ingested fluoride. The IAOMT has received scientific
input for this PHG from more than a dozen sources.
Adverse health effects demonstrated
were: fluorosis; cancers;
damage; bone pathology; trans placental and brain transport;
histological brain, artery, and kidney damage; and neurological
On July 2, 1997, the EPA scientists, engineers and attorneys
who assess the scientific data for Safe Drinking Water Act standards (why
you should only drink spring water these days) and other EPA regulations,
have gone on record against the practice of adding fluoride to public drinking
water. The National Federation of Federal Employees, Local 2050, states,
"It is our hope that our cosponsorship of the Safe Drinking Water Initiative
to prohibit fluoridation will have a beneficial effect on the health and
welfare of all Californians by helping to keep their water free of a chemical
substance for which there is substantial evidence of adverse health effects
and, contrary to public perception, virtually no evidence of significant
Subsets of the Population are at Risk
for the Toxic Effects of Fluoride: According to the 1993 Dept. of Health
and Human Services: "Existing data indicate that subsets of the population
may be unusually susceptible to the toxic effects of fluoride and its compounds.
These populations include the elderly, people with deficiencies of calcium,
magnesium, and/or vitamin C, and people with cardiovascular and kidney
Freedom of Choice for the Individual:
Individuals should not be involuntarily exposed to fluoride when there
is long term and abundant evidence of fluoride's harmful health effects,
plus no public health crisis or condition that demands mandatory exposure.-...continue?
