CDC and ADA Promote Water Fluoridation Without Regard for Safety
What is going on in your water?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are not alone in the campaign to force fluoridation on Americans. The American Dental Association (ADA), along with their state dental chapters and local health officials, have teamed up with the CDC, writing Op-eds, testifying at state and municipal hearings, writing and phoning local decision-makers, and opposing attempts by citizens to remove fluoride from their drinking water.
Meanwhile, Delta Dental is providing millions of dollars in grants for fluoride equipment and chemicals to municipalities each year to entice them to initiate and continue the practice of fluoridation, while The Pew Charitable Trusts actively lobbies state legislators and city councilors (including hiring public relations firms) to persuade communities to fluoridate, and encourages states like Arkansas to approve mandatory fluoridation.
In 2008, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that 72.4 percent of the U.S. population--nearly 200 million people—were using public water systems with fluoridated water. Since this report was published, the CDC’s Oral Health Division has been working non-stop, spending large amounts of taxpayer dollars promoting fluoridation throughout the United States, with the stated goal of having more than 75 percent of the population drinking fluoridated public water by 2011.
