Water Fluoridation is NOT about Dental Health
"Water fluoridation is simply a hazardous waste management tool. It has nothing to do with dental health."
Dr. William Hirzy, former risk assessment scientist at the Environmental Protection Agency. See links here:
Our local MMWD Board Members are putting hydrofluorosilicic acid, (that comes from the scrubbers of the phosphate fertilizer industry), into our drinking water without dosage control, medical oversight nor individual consent. Does this makes sense?
Instead of working with our community to end the unethical practice of water fluoridation, the MMWD are doing everything they can to keep water fluoridation going in our community. Why??!!
The MMWD are not bound by the 1995 mandate because the money paying for water fluoridation comes from real estate owned by the MMWD. This is not outside money and therefore, there is no mandate. Also, because the MMWD have NOT done a study on the environmental impact of water fluoridation, they are in violation of the California Environmental Quality Act laws.
The MMWD are also in violation of the 1972 Marin water fluoridation ordinance because the hydrofluorosilicic acid that is put into our water is NOT approved by the FDA. The National Sanitation Foundation does not have the authority to approve chemical substances that are put into our water to have a medical effect on our bodies.
How much longer is the MMWD going to use our bodies and our environment as a dumping ground for this hazardous waste?!
What Can You Do?
1. Contact your Marin County Board of Supervisor and request that they pass a Precautionary Principle Ordinance in Marin which would make water fluoridation illegal (and the use of any chemical in our water and environment that is not proven to be 100% safe). San Francisco Precautionary Principle Ordinance was adopted in 2003.

2. Contact your town/city council and request that they pass a resolution calling on the MMWD to end water fluoridation in Marin. See contact links below.
3. Send this to at least 10 people in Marin County.
strongly encourage you to act on this now by contacting town council members personally.
Consider winning each person as an ally on this important issue!
