Other countries around the world have found that water fluoridation does not positively affect dental carries, otherwise known as cavities. Though two-thirds of America suffers scientifically proven health risks associated to water fluoridation, there is ample evidence that this practice does nothing to help improve dental health.
In fact, water fluoridation can calcify the pineal gland, cause the thyroid gland to become underactive, interfere with important endocrine system functions (like regulating hormones), and cause neurological toxicity which lowers your IQ.
There is a reason the rest of the world doesn’t fluoridate the water. In a recent shift, the Supreme Court of Israel ruled that Israel must stop adding fluoride into public water supplies in one year, following a decision on fluoride’s potential toxicity to humans by the Israeli health minister.
Only 369 million of the world’s 7 billion people drink water that is purposefully fluoridated, yet the US ranks among the top countries that still fluoridates its water.
Dave Dawson, another member of Snowmass’ board said:
“Only recently have the studies been done on the effects of fluoride beyond your teeth. People can fluoridate if they wish. I don’t see it as our business to medicate the public.”
The district will immediately stop fluoridating their water following the board vote.
