The state has approved plans to spray in Willapa Bay a neurotoxic pesticide that has a warning right on the bottle: “Do not apply directly to water.” What could go wrong?

As a retired nuclear power-plant operator, Ross Barkhurst, 70, is by no means an environmentalist. In fact he spent his career clashing with them. (more…)

VICTORY: New Jersey Town Ends Fluoridation!


“The township will end its mass medication of the public by ending the use of fluoride in the water system,” said David Stahl, mayor of East Brunswick, last month during his state of the township address.

The township spent about $70,000 a year to fluoridate the water, and after the Mayor recommended the end of its practice the town’s Water Policy Advisory Committee voted 6-1 to shut down the fluoridation of their drinking water. The Mayor also said, (more…)

Fluoride could be causing depression and weight gain and councils should stop adding it to drinking water to prevent tooth decay, scientists have warned.

A study of 98 per cent of GP practices in England found that high rates of underactive thyroid were 30 per cent more likely in areas of the greatest fluoridation.

It could mean that up to 15,000 people are suffering needlessly from thyroid problems which can cause depression, weight gain, fatigue and aching muscles.

Last year Public Health England released a report saying fluoride was a ‘safe and effective’ way of improving dental health.

But new research from the University of Kent suggests that there is a spike in the number of cases of underactive thyroid in high fluoride areas such as the West Midlands and the North East of England.

Lead author Professor Stephen Peckham, Centre for Health Service Studies, said: “I think it is concerning for people living in those areas.

“The difference between the West Midlands, which fluoridates, and Manchester, which doesn’t was particularly striking. There were nearly double the number of cases in Manchester.

“Underactive thyroid is a particularly nasty thing to have and it can lead to other long term health problems. I do think councils need to think again about putting fluoride in the water. There are far safer ways to improve dental health.”

Dallas considers ending 50 years of water fluoridation


Dallas, the ninth-largest city in the country, is teetering on a huge victory for public health pending four more City Council members agreeing to end water fluoridation.

So far, three council members, including Sheffie Kadane, Scott Griggs and Jennifer Staubach Gates, have stood up to the practice, acknowledging that it’s unhealthy and expensive.

NSNBC International reports that ending water fluoridation in Dallas would immediately free up around $1 million. (more…)
