McKinney Texas Councilman Ray Ricchi, and many local North Texas residents, want water fluoridation stopped. As readers might imagine, I’ve been paying very close attention to the increasing awareness about “fluoride” in water, and I was very happy to hear that the McKinney City Council is currently reviewing this very important issue.
Local news reporters attended the recent City Council meeting in McKinney, where water fluoridation was on the agenda, and public comment was allowed. Of course, several local dentists were in attendance and spoke about the purported “benefits” of water fluoridation, while many informed residents spoke about the dangers of “fluoride” in water. I use quotes around “fluoride” on purpose, as naturally occurring calcium fluoride is not the issue being discussed locally. But, some news reporters who have covered the fluoridation story, just don’t seem to be able to “get it” quite yet.
Local news reporters continue to use the word “fluoride” in their articles and TV reports, claiming North Texas residents and Councilman Ricchi want naturally occurring (calcium) fluoride to be removed from the public’s water. Wrong. Anyone can look up and read their own city’s water quality report, and read the listed sources of “fluoride” that is added to the public water supply. Have you read yours? What does your town’s Water Quality Report say is the sources of fluoride coming out of your tap? The words, “discharge from fertilizer and aluminum factories“, or something quite similar, should grab your attention. That “discharge from fertilizer and aluminum factories”, is called Hydrofluorosilic Acid, and it’s added to the water that comes through your tap under the guise of being naturally occurring fluoride. Hydrofluorosilic Acid is NOT fluoride, and it is NOT naturally occurring, and it is NOT beneficial in any way.
Being a dental professional myself, and having spent the last couple/few years educating and informing myself about the science behind water fluoridation and the chemicals used to fluoridate water, by reading scientific and toxicology reports and more scientific books about fluoride than I care to count, being in attendance at the recent McKinney City Council meeting and listening to local dentists promote a process that even the American Dental Association says dentists are virtually clueless about, was quite interesting to watch from the opposite side of the room.
How You Can Help Stop Water Fluoridation in North Texas
It is encouraging to see so many local residents, who have actually taken the time to educate themselves and become fully informed about what “fluoride” really is, where “fluoride” comes from, and take a stand to end water fluoridation in North Texas.
Whether or not you personally live in North Texas, you can help spread awareness about Hydrofluorosilic Acid in water (so-called “fluoride”), by Liking and Sharing the local North Texas Fluoride Action Facebook pages that have been started to help put a stop to water fluoridation in North Texas. All 13 member cities that the North Texas Municipal Water Department fluoridates have their own individual Fluoride Action fanpages, including several non-member cities who receive their water from the member cities, are included in the current effort to stop fluoridation locally.
Member cities are: Frisco, Garland, McKinney, Mesquite, Plano, Princeton, Richardson, Rockwall, Royse City, Wylie, Allen, Farmersville and Forney Texas.
Water customers who receive their fluoridated water from member cities are: Ables Springs, Bonham, Caddo Basin, Cash, College Mound, Copeville, Crandall, East Fork, Fairview, Fate, Forney Lake, Gastonia-Scurry, Greater Texoma Utility Authority (GTUA), Josephine, Kaufman, Lavon, Little Elm, Lucas, Melissa, Milligan, Mount Zion, Murphy, Nevada, North Collin, Parker, Prosper, Rose Hill, Rowlett, Sachse, Seis Lagos, Sunnyvale, and Terrell.
I encourage you to Like and Share Fluoride Action Facebook Pages in support of their efforts.
