(NaturalNews) Sometimes organizing like-minded individuals, petitioning, and showing up to city council meetings to express your thoughts actually does make all the difference in instigating positive change. Health-conscious individuals from Fairbanks, Ak., recently achieved a huge health freedom victory when their city council voted almost unanimously to end water fluoridation. The decision followed concerted public outcry and presentation of the facts surrounding the health damage caused by consuming fluoride.

Several years ago, the Fairbanks City Council created a "Fluoride Task Force" to investigate the issues surrounding fluoridation, and devise recommendations for whether or not to continue fluoridating the water supply. Composed of experts in chemistry, geochemistry, microbiology, medicine, and dentistry, the group eventually came to the conclusion that artificial water fluoridation puts the health of the population at risk, and should be stopped.

You can read the full Fluoride Task Force report, which is full of credible, scientific evidence against the use of fluoride in water supplies, here:

Based on the recommendations of the group, Fairbanks Mayor Jerry Cleworth introduced Ordinance 5849, which outlaws the addition of fluoride to the city's water supply system. After more than an hour of public testimony and deliberation at a recent hearing, which was mostly against the use of fluoride, the Fairbanks City Council voted 5-1 to end water fluoridation beginning on July 1, 2011.

"There is no way to control how much (fluoride) a person drinks," said Fairbanks resident Coert Olmsted at the meeting. He also cited credible information about how consuming fluoride internally, rather than having it applied topically, is highly toxic to the body.

This incredible health freedom victory in Fairbanks represents a model by which residents of other cities and towns that fluoridate their water can help end it as well. You can do your part by forwarding the Fairbanks Fluoride Task Force report to your own city councils, and urging them to read and consider it. You can also propose that they set up independent task forces of their own to investigate fluoride, which if done honestly will come to the same or similar conclusions about the dangers of fluoride.
