Just days after one of the biggest health freedom victories of 2011 took effect, it was reported that advocates of tyranny are now trying to reverse this victory, and once again subject 700,000 people to forced medication via their water supplies. The Tampa Bay Times reports that the Pinellas County Commission (PCC) in Florida, which voted back in October to remove fluoride from the county’s water supply, is now considering reversing that decision in response to petitions by a few pro-fluoride fanatics.
As Natural News reported previously, PCC voted 4 – 3 back in October to stop adding fluoride to the county’s water supply, which stands to save the county more than $200,000 a year, as well as restore the health freedom of local residents who will no longer have to bathe in and drink water tainted with a toxic byproduct of the aluminum and phosphate mining industries (http://www.naturalnews.com/033801_fluoride_water_supply.html). But an upcoming hearing could change all that.
After deliberating with pro-fluoride advocates insistent on delivering fluoride to residents without alternatives, the council is now considering just caving to those who are whining the loudest, which at the current moment include fluoride advocates like councilman Jerry Mullins. Mullins and various other in the community bemoan the fact that the county’s water is no longer being poisoned, and insist that fluoride be reinstated for the sake of the children.
So on January 24, the council will reconvene to discuss ways in which fluoride can be reinstated into the county’s water supply in a more cost-effective manner. One suggested way is to inject the chemical at three different entry points, a method that leaves a lot of room for mixing and dilution errors that stand to put public health at serious risk.
These fluoride apologists continue to cling to antiquated and disproven pseudoscience that touts the made-up benefits of fluoride consumption. They also refuse to acknowledge the host of more recent science proving that water fluoridation is dangerous and causes brain damage, that it exposes the public to unspecific doses of an unapproved drug, and that it does not even provide the health benefits that its advocates claim it does (http://www.naturalnews.com/fluoride.html).
In order to stop Pinellas County’s regression back into the dark days of forced public medication, it is crucial that PCC hear from individuals everywhere about the dangers of fluoride. Health freedom advocates need to bombard PCC with opposition to its proposed reversal back to water fluoridation before the commission meets on Jan. 24.
