(NaturalNews) In the wake of the recent recommendation made by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to lower water fluoridation levels from the 1.2 parts per million (ppm) upper threshold to 0.7 ppm, the legislature of the state of Arkansas has decided to mandate that all cities and communities in the state with populations of 5,000 or more fluoridate their water supplies.

Without bothering to consult the public on the matter, the Arkansas State Senate quietly passed Senate Bill 359 in a 25 - 7 vote. Authored by lawyer and Sen. David Johnson (D-Little Rock), the bill, if upheld, will have the greatest affect on Fort Smith, Ark., which happens to be the largest non-fluoridated city in Arkansas. On numerous occasions, Fort Smith residents have overwhelmingly voted against water fluoridation.

The decision, which comes at a time when many studies and reports are questioning the safety of fluoride, especially in children, is highly concerning. It is also based on neither the public support of Arkansans nor valid science, which is illustrated in part by the fact that the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, a Washington D.C.-based think tank that claims not to take positions on policy issues, was one of the driving forces behind the initiative.

"Legislators cavalierly order fluoride into the bodies of American children without considering their individual total fluoride intake, clearly causing potential harm," said attorney Paul Beeber, President of the New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. "Legislators who vote for fluoridation often base their decision on hearsay and fail to look at the science behind fluoridation."

And perhaps one of the reasons they avoid the science is because it proves fluoride is harmful. Many studies have shown that artificial water fluoridation is linked to thyroid dysfunction, bone damage, and lowered IQ, among other things (http://www.naturalnews.com/fluoride.html).

"There are at least 24 studies that have found an association between lowered IQ and levels of fluoride in water as low as 1.9 ppm," said Paul Connett, PhD, director of the Fluoride Action Network, a non-profit advocacy group devoted to exposing the truth about the dangers of fluoride.
