(NaturalNews) Perhaps 2011 will go down in history as the year marking the eventual end of water fluoridation, when so many cities and towns across the US removed it that the rest had no choice but to ride the momentum and follow suit. WSMV-TV in Nashville, Tenn., reports that officials in Hohenwald, a town just an hour-or-so away from Nashville, have decided to end the town's water fluoridation program beginning on Nov. 10, 2011.
The announcement comes just a few weeks after Spring Hill, Tenn., a Nashville suburb, decided to end artificial fluoridation of its water supply (http://www.naturalnews.com/033479_fluoridati...). And like Spring Hill, Hohenwald's decision to axe fluoride, which was reached on Sept. 6, 2011, initially sparked birthed out of citizens' expressed concerns about the safety of this industrial chemical byproduct.
Besides saving Hohenwald tens of thousands of dollars every year, ending water fluoridation will spare Hohenwald's roughly 4,000 residents from having to ingest a neurotoxic poison that is responsible for lowering children's IQ levels, damaging the thyroid gland, and causing untold other long-term harm.
According to a recent report by Food Consumer, the following other North American cities and counties are also now considering an end to water fluoridation:
Nelson County, Virginia Bolivar, Missouri College Station, Texas Dunedin, Florida Smiths Falls, Ontario Williams Lake, British Columbia Hinton, Alberta Churchill, Manitoba
New York City (NYC) has also been throwing around the idea of ending its water fluoridation program, which currently affects more than eight million people. Councilman Peter Vallone, Jr., the man responsible for initiating a massive campaign to remove fluoride from the Big Apple's water supplies, will soon hold a press conference and rally on the steps of City Hall to kick off the campaign (http://www.naturalnews.com/030933_fluoride_N...).
Doing your homework on fluoride and presenting the facts about its dangers to your own local water facility just might be all it takes to end fluoridation in your own community, as well.
