Civil rights group adopts resolution opposing water fluoridation

(NaturalNews) The days of artificial water fluoridation truly are numbered, and this has been made even more evident by yet another prominent group that has come out in strong opposition to the heinous practice. The Fluoride Action Network (FAN), a truth about fluoride advocacy group, reports that the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), the oldest Hispanic civil rights organization in the US, recently adopted a resolution decrying water fluoridation as a civil rights abuse.

The resolution declares that adding fluoride to water supplies is essentially an illegal mass medication of the public. It also mentions the many current scientific studies that highlight the dangers of ingesting fluoride, particularly among those with pre-existing health conditions -- and that public health authorities have ignored this science in favor of their unscientific, pro-fluoride agenda (http://lulac.org/advocacy/resolutions/2011/r...).

"This is about forcing us to be medicated through our drinking water without our consent or full disclosure of the risks," said Henry Rodriguez, civil rights chairman of the Texas-based LULAC. His group is vehemently working to end the practice of water fluoridation across the US, where more than 64 percent of public water supplies are fluoridated (http://www.cdc.gov/fluoridation/statistics/2...).

"Opposition to fluoridation is going to continue building and there is no stopping it. There are millions of Hispanics and other minorities in the US who don't have the funds to avoid fluoridated water for making their babies' milk formula. And millions of families don't know they're being medicated in their drinking water, or about possible risks for kidney patients and diabetics."

Based on decades-worth of statistics released by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), water fluoridation has provided no substantial oral benefits for those consuming it. Particularly in the Hispanic community, many of those drinking fluoridated water still have plenty of cavities -- but they also now have high rates of dental fluorosis, a condition where teeth become brittle, mottled, and brown as a result of fluoride ingestion.

"Watch what develops now as members of the Hispanic legal community are awakening to this issue," said Daniel G. Stockin from The Lillie Center Inc., another group working to end water fluoridation. "The train has left the station. Fluoridation is ending. You can look for a quickening cascade of cities, water utilities, health officials and others distancing themselves from fluoridation."
