Jane Nielson, Ph.D (nsnbc) : Steering Committee Member, Sonoma County Water Coalition Board member, Open-space, Water, and Land Preservation Foundation (O.W.L.) I was in the middle of my education as a scientist when I first encountered the fluoridation controversy. I was getting a Masters in Geochemistry from the University of Michigan, and I attended a heated City Council meeting in Flagstaff, Arizona. By the end of that meeting I was convinced opponents of water fluoridation were conspiracy-minded loonies.

For decades I never thought much about fluoridation. I believed the doctors who said fluoride prevented tooth decay, so I gave my two children fluoride drops when they were infants. It wasn’t until the Sonoma County Water Coalition hosted a debate in 2009 that I became aware of different information about water fluoridation. Like that memorable Flagstaff meeting, I thought I’d hear “science” from supporters and “crazy stuff” from opponents. But neither side presented any science at all.

What the Studies Show

Exasperated, I started researching for myself. This was familiar terrain: I had published many papers, so I know what it takes to prove a point

Dental Fluorosis

Dental Fluorosis

scientifically, and the data required to get a paper published. I had performed analyses, plotted data and defended my research and interpretations in public forums. I quickly found World Heath Organization data that stunned me:

  • Tooth decay has plummeted in developed countries worldwide, regardless of fluoridation.
  • Cavity rates are the same — or even lower – in many non-fluoridated countries compared to the U.S.
  • The one clear correlation with water fluoridation is disfiguring “dental fluorosis” (supposedly only a cosmetic problem.)

I then proceeded to review a range of scientific papers, including all the most recent research on actual and potential effects of water fluoridation. In study after study I found that differences in tooth decay rates between areas that have fluoridated water supplies for decades, and those that either never fluoridated or stopped fluoridating, were minimal to nonexistent.

Key U.S. studies confirm that ingesting fluoride does not prevent tooth decay:

  • 1990 National Institute of Dental Research Survey: One of the largest U.S. surveys of tooth decay found no significant difference in tooth decay (less than ½ of 1% of the 128 tooth surfaces in the mouth ) between fluoridated and non-fluoridated populations.
  • Several modern U.S. Studies (1997-2001): Tooth decay did not go up when fluoridation was stopped.
  • The 2009 National Institutes of Health-funded “Iowa Study”: Cavity levels the same regardless of whether children ingested fluoride or not.

Apply It or Swallow It?

In recent years the differentiation between swallowing fluoride and coating teeth with it has become lost in the discussion. But this differentiation is essential. The overwhelming consensus among scientists, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the National Research Council, is that fluoride works when it’s applied to the tooth surface, NOT when it’s swallowed.

Sonoma County Has provided No Scientific Support for Fluoridation

In 2013, County Health officials provided the Sonoma County Water Coalition with a single study in support of fluoridation by Australian scientists who reviewed worldwide fluoridation studies written in English. But that study is flawed because it failed to compare fluoridated versus non-fluoridated populations, lacked a cavity prevention assessment, and showed an extremely weak correlation insufficient to prove cause-and-effect. Thus far the County has not offered any more definitive data to support its campaign.

How Did the U.S. Get Sold on Water Fluoridation?

In analyzing early research, it’s clear that the U.S. promoted the spread of water fluoridation before completing definitive studies. I’ve met with this practice of promoting innovations that later prove to have negative public health impacts over and over again in< my scientific career. After the debate, I realized that without solid science to back it up, fluoridation could well represent the same dynamic. And now, having examined the research myself, I’ve concluded that water fluoridation is indeed an echo of past mistakes. Improving children’s dental health is a worthy goal. But before Sonoma County considers water fluoridation, the public must demand the County first prove that it works.

CITIZENS AGAINST WATER FLUORIDATION LETTER NUMBER ONE

Dear Town Council Members, OWASA, The Board of Aldermen and Citizens of Orange County, NC,

Parker Emmerson

Parker Emmerson

I hope all is well with you.

I am writing to notify you that there is a toxic, hazardous substance currently added to the Orange County water supply. This substance is fluoride. After repeated inquiries into this matter with the OWASA board members, we have still not been told what kind of fluoride is added to the water. My peers who oppose the addition of the level 3 or 4 health hazard toxin known as fluoride suspect that the kind of fluoride currently added to the water is fluorosilic acid and that, when this kind of fluoride hits one’s stomach acid, it transforms into Hydrogen Fluoride, a level four (4) health hazard as rated by the NFPA fire diamonds seen:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen_fluoride

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NFPA_704 (Key to reading NFPA fire diamonds)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_fluoride (Level 3 Health Hazard, Toxic, Irritant)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hexafluorosilicic_acid (Level 3 Health Hazard, Toxic, Corrosive)

http://www.sciencelab.com/msds.php?msdsId=9924083 (Level 3 Health Hazard)

http://toxnet.nlm.nih.gov/cgi-bin/sis/search/r?dbs+hsdb:@term+@rn+16961-83-4 (Level 4 Health Hazard)

Fluosilicic Acid: “Agent in water fluoridation, in preliminary treatment of hides and skins, and to reduce reflectivity in glass surfaces; disinfectant for copper and brass vessels; impregnating ingredient to preserve wood and to harden masonary; chem intermediate for aluminum trifluoride, cryolite, and fluorsilicates; electroplating agent for chromium.

Furthermore, Sodium fluoride pills are a prescription drug with NDC (National Drug Code) # 0288-1106-10 and NDC # 68032-382-12 (to name just two) – their primary purpose to deliver fluoride (fluorine) to the teeth through what I consider the pseudo-science of its being beneficial when contained in the saliva and “bathing the teeth” in fluoride continuously throughout the day. At least ten different citizens have challenged the OWASA board’s continued addition of fluoride (a by-product of the aluminum and fertilizer industries by their own admission on their website) with valid, cogent arguments against the addition of this drug into the water supply against their consent.

We got nowhere with the board.

Notably – the recently dismissed “State Dentist” Rebecca King (See:Tense meeting with DHHS leader Wos leads to firing of NC’s top dentist) – gave her “testimony” (“expert” opinion) on the subject in a meeting that was exempt from public comment, and she used a tactic coined by Orwell as “Double Speak” on more than one occasion.  She stated word for word, and I have this on record,

“Fluoride is not a by-product of the fertilizer industry. Fluoride comes from the same phosphate rock that is used to create fertilizer – it does not come from fertilizer.”

So, somehow these two things (phosphate mining and fertilizer production) are not correlated even though fluoride comes from the same phosphate rock used to produce fertilizer? If fluoride were not pumped into the public water supplies of practically every North Carolina township, what would the phosphate mining companies do with all of the fluoride?

They would have to pay to dispose of it as what it is – toxic waste, which they do not want to do.

We confronted the OWASA board about this specific inconsistency in the pro-fluoride argument (position), among many, many others (for emphasis), and each time, they denied it – repeatedly stating that the fluoride they used did not come from the fertilizer and aluminum industries, until finally – Corey Sturmer, an anti-fluoride activist brought out into the open a print out of their own website (water quality report card) that stated their source of fluoride was phosphate rock from byproducts of the fertilizer and aluminum industry.  See:

Finally, they were forced to have one of their operational employees come to the meeting and give a statement about how the fluoride they used actually did come from the by-products of a North Carolina phosphate rock-mining plant which supplied the fertilizer industry. We have all of these encounters on video.

This was just one example of misleading double-speak they used. They also denied direct response to our questions/points and neglected due diligence of researching the facts we presented to them. Otherwise, why would they have come to the decision to continue fluoridating the public water supply? We have them on record stating that it does not have a benefit to the safety of the water that so many people in this town drink.

They are not open about their actions, nor are they forthcoming with information that should be public.   For example, I have asked them numerous times if they use sodium fluoride or a kind of fluorosilic acid, and they have not told me which one they use. I have asked them to address what gives them the right to give out a drug to unwitting people when they are admittedly not health professionals. They are the ones who add fluoride to the water and set the quantity of fluoride added. What are they doing adding fluoride to the water when they are not health professionals? They are not elected, but rather are an ad hoc committee. This goes against the constitution of North Carolina.

I am writing to implore you to re-examine the policies of the OWASA board.

Think about these things, and ask yourself these questions:

  1. The supposed purpose of the water fluoridation is supposedly for hardening the enamel of the teeth through the saliva. Fluoride has an NDC # (National Drug Code Number). Is it ethical to give a drug to everyone – or put otherwise – to discriminate against those who would not like to take the drug fluoride by forcing them to obtain fresh water sources and denying them public water?
  2. If I drink one liter of OWASA water, I would be taking the equivalent of .7 mg of fluoride. If I were to drink to two liters of OWASA water, that means I would get 1.4 mgs of fluoride. The NDC # is relevant to doses of only .25 mg. per day. Think about that. This is huge over exposure if you are just drinking a regular amount of water. The board is drugging the population.
  3. Could the right to freedom of religion be violated by the addition of a toxin to the water supply? Muslims must use clean water, free of toxins for their prayers. Fluoride is a toxin and health hazard.
  4. How can one ethically put a substance in the public water supply that has been linked to decreased bone density and lowered IQ in a Harvard Medical Journal study: http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/news/features/fluoride-childrens-health-grandjean-choi/
  5. Has OWASA exceeded their charter in attempting to forcibly (covertly) drug the entire population? YES! OWASA’s charter allows them to provide clean water, not give drugs to the general population.
  6. Fluoride pacifies people and makes them more complacent. This characteristic was used by Hitler, Stalin, and numerous other dictators to pacify the population and coerce them more easily into going along with totalitarian, facist ideologies. Why would we risk this in our own society by fluoridating the public?
  7. WATER FLUORIDATION WAS JUST BANNED BY THE COUNTRY OF ISRAEL, STOPPED IN PORTLAND, OREGON AND IS GAINING MOMENTUM AS AN ISSUE OPPOSED BY AN AWAKENED PUBLIC.

The reality is that there a growing number of concerned citizens believe or at least question not only the validity of fluoride science, but the ethicality, potential of severely harmful side effects (on the human body through accumulation in the environment and over exposure), and true purpose of water fluoridation. We stand against water fluoridation whole-heartedly and believe fluoride should be avoided.

All Our Best,

PARKER EMMERSON AND THE UNDERSIGNED ATTACHED

December 27, 2013

In my last report, you journeyed with me through the “Customer Service Hotline” of Durham’s Water Management Department, where I attempted to get a discount on my water bill that would account for the fluoridation chemicals forcefully added to our water since 1957.  I figured & I’m sure most red-blooded Americans would agree, that we should not have to pay for medication we never agreed to purchase.

As you may remember, this was a failed attempt insofar as no discount was ever rendered but the discussion was nevertheless successful in exposing the unfortunate reality that the individual in Durham North Carolina is left with absolutely no recourse if he disagrees with the communist-inspired social engineering thrust upon his drinking water, which is medicated against his consent.  In typical fashion I was treated like a real hot potato by the powers that be in Durham before eventually being reminded that, despite my wishes, I would still be forced to pay the same rate for my water even though nobody debated the legality of systematically medicating the water supply or so much as acknowledged the outright violation of our rights.

Left with no recourse, I decided to pursue a different course on this issue and attempted to file a criminal police report with the Durham Police Department, since I have never once met an individual willing to argue that drugging someone else’s water is a legal & lawful thing to do.  As you will see, I make a quick transformation from an enthusiastic mid-twenty something into a veritable turd subsequently passed from one governmental intestinal tract to another.

It is clear from the onset that this is an issue nobody in our government is either knowledgeable about or has any authority to change, which also happens to be a leitmotif of this effort since its early beginnings in 2011.  Listen! and you will hear me being passed from supervisor to supervisor, in a familiar methodology which inevitably leads me to a kind but ignorant Durham Police Officer who sums up the City’s stance on fluoridation perfectly when I pose the simple question:

“What will happen to the police report after it is filed?”

Officer Smith of the Durham Police Department replies:

“To be honest sir, absolutely nothing.”

Alex Jones’ Infowars.com Paul Revere Contest began at the beginning of 2013 to inspire liberty-oriented individuals to produce a short film on the state of our world and the state of freedom, to be considered for a potential $115,000 in prizes!  It was soon thereafter I began working with other activists in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill to create our entry which was entitled “21st Century Dawes Project” and followed retrospectively the efforts of myself and others in the area to raise awareness on the mass medication of our public water supplies by the bureaucratic & academic “elite” who have convinced generations of people that it is in their best interest to drink an industrial toxic waste – one that is destroying our minds & bodies systematically.

“21st Century Dawes Project”

In response to the building momentum behind the Durham/Raleigh/Chapel Hill anti-fluoride movement, InfoWars Nightly News recently interviewed Marcus Hill and Katie Habberman on their efforts to protest the mass poisoning of citizens via community water fluoridation.  Using new facebookesque patriot-targeted social media technology known as Planet InfoWars, the duo created Greater Raleigh Resistance, a group dedicated to resisting all manner of tyranny here in the RDU area.

What followed was a series of visits to the Raleigh City Council in addition to pivotal connections with the Durham effort of which I and this website are an integral part.  With combined enthusiasm and increased numbers, we brought our collective voice back to Raleigh City Council, which resulted in a stunning face off between a council resigned to corruption and the cold hard facts about their dubious fluoridation claims.  Watch Marcus and Katie below discuss how they leveraged Planet InfoWars to truly make a difference in our area.

PCS Phosphate Certificate of Analysis For Fluoride added to Raleigh’s Water Supplies

In the highly anticipated December 4th Raleigh City Council meeting a cadre of patriots brought forth stunning revelations about the council’s ignorance of their own policies, denial of peer reviewed scientifically factual research, and overall breathtaking silence as lies and deceptions were uncovered in mere minutes.

As per the official agenda, the night was supposed to begin with the re-airing of this 8 minute piece produced by WTVD news on water fluoridation.  The citizens involved had pre-arranged with the City Clerk to project this piece in lieu of speaking to the council, effectively using all of the allotted 3 minutes/person in combination to ensure the council members watched the clip in its entirety.

As you will see below the council fearfully denied our request to air the video simply because they do not want to “set precedent” for citizens using their allotted speaking time in combination with others.    I guess they don’t have time in their busy schedules to hear the citizen’s concerns.

All this despite the fact that the time allotted was more than it would have taken to play the clip.

Undeterred by the Council’s cowardice, Katie Habberman and Marcus Hill posed some pointed questions to the Council regarding the city-supplied certificate of analysis which shows the specific addition of multiple compounds, all toxic, under the umbrella term “Fluoride.”  Their answer, as you will find below, was deafening silence from a squirming city council resigned to their own corruption and misdirected policies.

This silence was broken only by Councilman John Odom who defended fluoridation by saying:

“I drink the water the city of Raleigh puts out, and I think it’s the best in the country.  I’ve supported it the 14 years I’ve been on this council and I certainly have no fear of making that statement.”

Durham Citizens,

As you may already know the fight to put a stop to the unhealthy practice of public water fluoridation pushes onward.

Last month we had a great turn out at the Durham County Public Health Hearing where citizens and activists stood in unison to urge our county health officials to recommend our city council put a stop to this madness.  As promised, WTVD Channel 11 showed up to capture those who spoke up on video.  This footage will be used in an investigative report due to air this November on the issue of Fluoridating public water.  The monday after our meeting, I sat down with anchor Steve Daniels to discuss the whys and hows of this issue.  I am pleased to report that WTVD is preparing a great informative report that is sure to bring incredible awareness to this issue.

We already had great success in making our voices heard last month and was promised by the county health board that they would form a subcommittee in order to review the evidence which supports our position against Fluoridation.

Unfortunately, almost 1 month later my sources say that the county health board has reneged on their promise and so far have not taken ANY action to form a subcommittee to formally review the evidence we are presenting.

While discouraging, now is NOT the time to give up – rather – now is the perfect time to show our civil servants that WE MEAN BUSINESS!

Thursday October 18th @ 5:00 PM there will be another county health board meeting and I am planning to show up and hold them accountable!  Me and a few other activists are planning on using our allotted speaking time to play a short informational piece on Fluoridation, and to ask them politely why they have not looked more thoroughly into this issue.  Afterall, it’s our HEALTH that is at risk!
