Members of We Are Change Colorado confronted a Denver advisory board for water about the ill health effects of fluoride, a known nero-toxin, as well as other related information, including the work of propagandist Edward Bernays to add it to the nation's water supply (his work also spurned approval for lead and asbestos usage).
The group gave a presentation filled with objective information and convincing arguments... and standing up for the nation's health in their actions.
"No one's warning us not to drink the water, but they warn us not to ingest the toothpaste that has the same about of fluoride," one member of Change argued.
The problems with public water supplies are well established-- for instance a recent controversy has arisen from an AP report that some 40% of the nation's water contains significant amounts of pharmaceutical drugs and other dangerous elements.
A detailed account of the meeting is posted here, but overall the board was quite sympathetic-- apparently pleasantly surprised that anyone from the public had bothered to show up. That's because it's made up of volunteers:
One board member stated her agreement about fluoride concerns. "I'm getting to a point where I don't know why we're not looking at this." She proposed a full presentation on that issue as well as future action.
A We Are Change chapter in Ohio previously started a campaign calling for grocery giant Kroger to stop carrying fluoride-enhanced baby water 'Nursery'.
These groups have helped point out that government officials are aware of the health risks posed by fluoride, yet it remains in the water supplies of most of the nation's cities. Several European nations have now banned its use in water. Here are some of the hopeful statements from U.S. officials:
