(NaturalNews) It appears that the best political approach to create Health Freedom is on the local front. Petitioning the FDA and USDA and Congress has just not worked. Locally, Honolulu banned water fluoridation, and Fairbanks, Alaska recently stopped decades of forced fluoridation. Three towns in Maine have very recently adopted food freedom ordinances, exempting them from federal oversight over their food.

Though pressing for health freedom in local communities shows more promise than pushing on a federal level, it's not necessarily easy.

Fluoride Free Austin (FFA) Makes a Dent

After over two years of struggling to be heard in City Hall chambers, Fluoride Free Austin finally got their chance last March. Upon reviewing the video that documented the activist group's testimony to the Austin, TX City Council's Health Task Force, it appears that this hearing was merely going through the motions to appear concerned because City Council elections are approaching. These city council members were not open.

Some of the comments made by council members and their chosen medical experts were absurd. The Travis County (Austin) Medical Director was totally irrational. They ignored the presented fact that there is a huge difference between naturally occurring calcium chloride and sodium chloride.

FFA's point is not whether fluoride helps prevent tooth decay (it doesn't), but that it is a health hazard if ingested daily. This was presented very adequately and appropriately by the knowledgeable activists at the meeting.

Fluoride Discrimination

Sodium fluoride, or fluorosilicic acid, is a toxic byproduct of mostly the phosphate fertilizer industry in Florida. This byproduct is so toxic that the EPA forced phosphate plants to use smoke stack scrubbers to keep the nearby residents from getting extremely ill and crops from dying.

But the disposal of the toxic waste became a problem, a financial burden. Solution? Convince community politicians that this toxic fluoride brew should be added to water supplies for tooth decay prevention. Then sell it to those communities for a profit.

Our bones, pineal glands, and other organs attract and absorb the fluorides. Bones become weak; brains get sluggish; and kidney problems accrue. Just take a look at the warning on a tube of toothpaste. It tells you to call 911 if your child ingests the contents. Oh yeah, it's safe alright!

Fighting City Hall is Problematic

After this event, the City of Austin signed onto a one year extension for more sodium fluoride deliveries. Fluoride Free Austin continues its uphill struggle against a stacked deck with the hopes of voting in a few new Council Members who are against funding fluoridation, well over a half-million dollars annually, to forcibly medicate Austin's citizens with hazardous materials.

Now FFA feels the issue is in the open as a local political topic, and they're still motivated to continue this crusade. More than one City Council person wannabe has voiced opposition to fluoridating the city's water supply as an unnecessary expense. And a few of the other current council members seem open to more investigation of fluoride matters. Maybe they just need to feel that they can get at the truth instead of being swayed by senior city council members.

New York, New York

In NYC, the fluoride expense is closer to over two-million dollars a year. Natural News reported the factual health findings that NYC knew about but buried. Instead, they are cutting back on fire stations to trim their budget. Abolishing NYC water fluoridation would require a huge battle. But each smaller community's victory helps create a domino effect while adding precedence.
