"Congressman Calvert's Question 8: 'How many individuals in the nation does EPA estimate fall into the category depicted as “unusually susceptible” in the Toxicological Profile for Fluorides, Hydrogen Fluoride, and Fluorine, published by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry? What measures does EPA recommend for these "unusually susceptible" individuals who live in fluoridated communities or communities whose water contains fluoride at the MCL?'
"In the response to congressman Ken Calvert, the EPA also concedes that fluosilicic acid and fluorosilicates, the preferred chemicals used to fluoridate drinking water are captured pollution waste products from phosphate fertilizer industry.
"No safety testing has ever been done with the products.**
"The addition of fluoride substances to the drinking water for the purpose of water fluoridation are regulated by EPA as contaminants.*
"In regard to the use of fluosilicic acid as the source of fluoride for fluoridation, this agency [WHO? U.S. EPA??] regards such use as an ideal solution to a long standing problem. By recovering by-product fluosilicic acid from fertilizer manufacturing, water and air pollution are minimized, and water authorities have a low-cost source of fluoride..."

Citizens for Safe Drinking Water
California's mandatory fluoridation program is rejected
by key cities.
California has a mandated water fluoridation program which identifies
and prioritizes the top150 cites for fluoridation. Although California mandated
water fluoridation, it never funded the program and therefore cannot legally
require it. They leave the choice to the cities.
Recently (March '99) California's #1 fluoridation priority,
City of La Mesa, said No Thank You. This was soon followed
(March '99) by the #4 priority, the City of Escondido,
which passed an Ordinance to prohibit fluoridation.
The creation of the State's fluoridation priority list was established
by the enactment of unfunded mandate AB733 in October 1995, calling for
fluoridation by all water suppliers with more than 10,000 connections. Each
water district was required to submit an estimate of the capital costs for
purchasing and installing fluoridation equipment, with the least cost per
customer given the #1 priority.
Members of Citizens for Safe Drinking Water throughout the state question
the sanity of continuing to force fluoridation when the original goal of
1 milligram per day for a child from all sources is already achieved in
non fluoridating communities, and that the mass medication amount used to
fluoridate exceeds the level that any professional in the country can ethically
prescribe for a child 6 years of age and younger and still conform to the
revised policy recommendations for total exposure by the American Dental
Association and American Academy of Pediatrics.
"When does this stop?", asks David C. Kennedy, a practicing
dentist in San Diego and Past President of the International Academy of
Oral Medicine and Toxicology. "In the Wall Street Journal, December
21, 1998, the U. S. Center for Disease Control admits that 22% of all of
our nation's children now display physical signs of fluoride overdose. Since
the State made its decision in 1995, there have been six studies that link
fluoride to neurological impairment and lower IQ in children. How many more
have to suffer before the main stream media and the people who care about
our kids and country and future rise up all at once and tell the promoters
of adding industrial hazardous wastes to our water to back off ?"
#1 On Fluoridation Priority List Says No
Each of the Directors of the Helix Water District expressed the reasoning
behind their individual decision to reject converting their water supply
into a delivery system for mass medication, noting that the mission of their
water district is to remove impurities by treating the water, not to add
to them, or medicate people. Helix is currently undergoing a $28 million
upgrade and expansion program, and the Board of Directors may soon consider
the use of Ozonation, which would replace the use of chlorine as a primary
The independent decision to reject any funding for fluoridation purposes
comes on the heels of a March 9, 1999 unanimous resolution by the City of
La Mesa that opposes the fluoridation of its citizens and requests that
Helix Water District ensure, "...That every means available and necessary
is used to vigorously oppose putting fluoride in the water supply."
No. 4 On State's Priority List Passes Ordinance
to Prohibit Fluoridation
The City of Escondido, which is listed fourth on California's fluoridation
priority list, took a stand yesterday to protect their citizens against
the State's plan to fluoridate their public water.
Councilmember Beier further questioned why professionals were required
to evaluate a child's weight, growth and development, unusual susceptibility,
and total exposure to fluoride from all sources before being able to prescribe
even 1/4 of what that child is expected to receive in the water. Beier noted
that the amount of fluoride the State was intending to put in the water
exceeded the amount that any health professional could ethically prescribe
to a child under 6 years of age.
A contentious moment of the meeting occurred in response to Beier's statement
that, after his listening to hours of discrepancies between the fluoridation
proponents' own facts and representations, and the recognition that the
substance to be added to the water was an industrial hazardous waste, he
was trying to determine what was driving the ADA and others to push so hard.
Referring to the millions of dollars paid to the ADA for the endorsement
of fluoride products, Beier suggested that one should just, "follow
David Nelson, the fluoridation consultant for the state Department of
Health and Human Services, offered the State's opinion that the ordinance
would not prevail against the State.
Nelson contended that the determination of which communities were to
be fluoridated, and how a $10 million grant from California Endowment for
implementation of fluoridation is spent, was his agency's own internal decision,
and that they might just skip around the priority list and provide funds
to Cities that want to fluoridate.
In what some audience members could only imagine was a mis-statement,
although uncorrected, Nelson additionally stated that if the City did not
pass the ordinance, and accepted $10 million, the city could sit back and
let the State's legal department and the Health and Human Services fight
the lawsuits that would come up.
[Special thanks for Mayor Pro Tem Beier for having the courage to
stand tall for benefit of all citizens]
On March 2, the voters in Santa Cruz affirmed a March 1998 ordinance
passed by the city council that prohibited fluoridation without a vote of
the people, and expanded the ordinance to include prohibition of any substance
intended to affect the physical or mental functions of persons consuming
On March 9, the City of La Mesa voted unanimously to pass a resolution
supporting the prohibition of fluoridation, and requested that Helix Water
District, which supplies water to their city, ensure, "...That every
means available and necessary is used to vigorously oppose putting fluoride
in the water supply."
On March 17, Helix Water District, listed as No. 1 on the State's fluoridation
priority list, directed their staff to advise the California Department
of Health and Human Services, a fluoridation task force coalition, and the
other water agencies and communities that they service, that Helix will
reject any grant offered them that would require that they add fluoride
to their water.

Drinking Water filed a lawsuit containing more than 20 causes of action
against the Los Angeles City Council and Department of Water and Power,
as Los Angeles prepares to fluoridate based on a vote of the City Council.
Los Angeles was the last major city in California to allow the people a
say, in 1975, which resulted in 213,000 citizens of Los Angeles voting to
reject the 1974 City Council's decision to fluoridate.
