WE, THE CITIZENS, call on the City of Yuma to amend the City Charter
in order that ARTICLE XIV Sec. 2 shall include the following: (C) Use of fluoride. No fluoride, nor
any chemical containing or derived from fluorine, shall be added to the
public water supply.
must the City Charter be amended? This is why:
Fluoride is a Class 4 poison.
Fluoride is one of the most
toxic, most reactive, most corrosive compounds on Earth.
Any child who ate a half-tube of fluoride-containing toothpaste absolutely would die a gruesome and painful death (if not immediately rushed to the ER, and immediately properly diagnosed, and immediately treated): hydrofluoric acid would literally
dissolve the child's stomach, exactly as if the little girl or little
boy had swallowed Drano rather than Crest. Every year, eight
children die in this manner; every six weeks, somewhere in America, a toddler dies like this, shrieking and writhing in mortal agony. This tragic fact is never publicized,
as the mainstream media does not want to cause
panic – or alert the public to the danger of fluoride.
Every day, hydrofluosilic acid – industrial
waste purchased from China – is deliberately dumped into Yuma's
drinking water. This industrial waste has never been chemically
tested: no one (except perhaps the Chinese manufacturer) knows what heavy
metals, bio-organisms, pathogens, and other toxins are contained in the
bags of Chinese hydrofluosilic acid dumped into
your drinking water.
However, the EPA knows that the
fluoride compound which is dumped in Yuma's drinking water is
toxic. In 1984, an EPA spokesman said that
using toxic waste to fluoridate drinking water is an ideal solution
to the problem of hazardous waste disposal. The
EPA has made it a federal crime to discharge fluoride into rivers –
the very same fluoride that the City of Yuma dumps into your drinking
water. In the past, it was American aluminum and fertilizer manufacturers
who made money by selling their toxic waste to cities like Yuma –
today, it's the Chinese who make money by off-loading their toxic waste
in American water supplies.
Swallowing fluoride to
prevent tooth decay is like drinking tanning lotion to prevent sunburn.
This is what happens to teeth
exposed to fluoride.
of fluorosis: damaged teeth
America, 40% of teen-agers have fluorotic teeth – which explains
why most dentists now specialize in cosmetic & orthodontic dentistry
(bleaching & repairing fluoride-damaged teeth is big business).
Fluoride causes degenerative diseases
of bones & joints, as well as bone cancer
fractures now afflict approximately 500,000 (half-a-million) elderly
every year. Fifty years ago – before public water
systems were fluoridated – brittle bones and fractures among the
elderly were very rare.
fluoride was used poison people, it was used to kill rats & cockroaches.
Fluoride is a neurotoxin.
or three of every 100 Americans suffers from some degree of scoliosis
– caused by water fluoridation.
1925, Johns Hopkins researcher E. V. McCollum found that the ingestion
of fluorine in amounts only slightly higher than average natural background
level markedly disturbs the structure of the teeth, and in 1930, scientist
and fluoride-researcher H. V. Smith stated: mottling is a visible
indicator of systemic fluoride poisoning and, no matter how mild the mottling,
it is an external sign of internal distress.
Although proponents of fluoridation admit
that fluoride causes fluorosis (brittle,
crumbling, mottled, stained teeth), they claim that is is merely a minor
cosmetic effect & of no importance; however, literally thousands of
peer-reviewed scientific studies (videA
Bibliography of Scientific Literature on Fluoride) have proven that
no level of fluoride ingestion is safe.
In addition to damaging the teeth, fluoride visibly damages
the bones and causes bone cancer,
while causing invisible damage to joints.
A hormone-disrupter, fluoride attacks
the glands, particularly the pineal gland; by attacking the pituitary
gland, fluoride causes hypothyroidism, lack of energy, &
obesity. Fluoride attacks the neurological
system including the brain, reducing IQ,
causing behavioral problems including ADHD,
and creates brain plaque symptomatic of dementia
Once ingested, fluoride
accumulates in the bones and teeth, where it becomes a permanent
part of the body. As it is excreted extremely slowly, it
takes months to excrete what is ingested in a day and, meanwhile, every
day, more is ingested. In 2006, The National Research Council released
a report on fluoride stating that drinking 1 ppm fluoridated water for
just two years accumulates fluoride in bones to 2,500 ppm; the effect
is irreversible and increases for the life of the consumer. Some
people who live in fluoridated cities (such as Yuma) have levels as high
as 12,000 ppm fluoride in their bones. Fluoride cannot be removed
by boiling water (boiling concentrates it). Because the compound
fluoride is unstable & easily breaks down into the element fluorine
– whose molecular weight is smaller than that of water – fluoride
cannot be removed by reverse-osmosis or by distillation.
Fluoridation of public water supplies is
illegal in most European countries, as it is seen to be cumpulsory
(involuntary) mass medication which violates fundamental human
rights. Ironically, because fluoride lowers children's IQ and
causes many degenerative diseases, fluoridation is illegal in China –
which is why the Chinese send their industrial waste containing hydrofluosilic
acid to America, where it ends up in your drinking water.
The fact is: anyone who tells you
that fluoride is good for you is either lying or is ignorant of any of
the more than 5,000 scientific studies on fluoride-toxicity. It
is foolish to trust your health – and the
health of your family, pets, and livestock –
to some expert who tells you that poison is good for you.
Once fluoride is dumped in your drinking water;
it cannot be removed, not by boiling, not
by distillation, not by reverse osmosis: F [fluorine] is smaller than
H2O ... it's like trying to keep flies out with chicken wire ... poisonous
F passes right through.
Once fluoride is in your body, it
is there forever, eating away at your teeth, your
bones, your joints, your hormonal system (causing hypothyroidism, sluggishness,
and obesity) and, perhaps most cruelly, your neurological system
– causing not only lowered IQ but also the syndrome called
ADHD and the disease known as Alsheimer's.
The only solution
is to vote to stop dumping fluoride in Yuma's water.
Responsible adults do not poison their children.
