Who will they represent?

Dear Editor,

With the City Council getting ready to vote on fluoride, now is the time to research the latest studies and let them know how you feel about this. Resources such as fluoridealert.org have lists of 2019 and 2020 studies on the direct links between fluoride and diminished IQ in prenatal and adolescent studies, as well as the increase in ADHD and fluoride links.

Connections to sleep apnea reduced kidney and liver function and thyroid function. (Green-2019, Riddell-2019, Malin-2019, Malin-2019, Till-2020, Uyghurturk-2020, Bashash-2017)

In 1995 and EPA study showed neonatal fluoride exposure, neurotoxic to rats. CDC-65 percent of American adolescents have dental fluorosis that indicates overexposure to fluoride.

2006, the National Research Council (NRC) looked at the toxicology of fluoride, concluding that based on the studies available at that time, fluoride poses a threat to the brain.

The CDC and EPA confirm their agencies do not have any safety data on fluoride intake and neurotoxic effects and/or effects on the brain.

Sec. 21 of the Toxic Substances Act (TSCA) allows citizens and non-governmental organizations to petition the EPA to remove toxic substances found to pose an “unreasonable risk” either to the general population or a subset of that population.

I am acutely interested in who our city council chooses to represent. The Industries and those who benefit from adding the neurotoxin to our water, or the residents of our city and their full-body health and best interests.
