Petition Tag - fluorosis
Fluoride is a poison that causes numerous health problems and our City has voted against the removal of it for years despite the cities around us passing the vote. Many studies have shown the effects of fluoride on the human body and some of the problems include but are not limited to,
BRAIN DAMAGE IN UNBORN FETUS
DENTAL AND SKELETAL FLUOROSIS
LOWERING OF IQ
INTERFERES WITH WHITE BLOOD CELL PRODUCTION
HEART CIRCULATION PROBLEMS
This Petition is important because this is a real poison that we are given daily and have no choice whether or not to consume it.
It is widely known that fluoride in tooth paste is poisonous if swallowed, it says on the warning label to call poison control if more than is used to brush is swallowed.
So it is highly unethical and dangerous to the citizens of San Diego County to ingest fluoride in the water that is piped into our homes.
Fluoridated water doesn't have any real contact with teeth in the first place so it will not have a protective effect on teeth. In reality when ingested, especially by young children can harmful to the health.
Fluoridation of the water when ingested causes fluorosis, a decay of the teeth, as well as kidney disease, cancer, and effects on the brain such as alzheimers disease.
Fluoride is an excess waste from manufacturing aluminum and nuclear power plants, it is corrosive and toxic, it should not be put into the public water supply.
