The Anti-Fluoride Revolution has been essential in removing the toxic fluoride from public water supplies.
- So far at least 53 communities with 3.5 million residents have been freed from fluoridation. Since 1990, more than 300 communities have “beat fluoridation” with a city council or referendum vote to end the practice. This number doesn’t include the hundreds, if not thousands of communities, who have rejected the start of fluoridation programs in their city.
- Many victories were the result of regular citizens who opposed fluoridation, organizing local campaigns to educate their neighbors and local decision-makers about the serious health risks associated with the practice. But prominent legislators and city councilors representing large cities have also begun introducing fluoride prohibition legislation and resolutions. This is a sign that the issue is becoming less controversial in the eyes of decision-makers, and is losing its status as an undebateable issue.
- Over the past decade, we have seen the dental-lobby spending more effort and money trying to influence state-legislators to pass bills mandating statewide fluoridation.”
