(NaturalNews) Getting the word out about its dangers, protesting in front of city hall or your state's capitol building, attending and speaking at council meetings, and signing online petitions are all useful, practical ways to help push for an end to water fluoridation in your community. But if none of these efforts seem to be working and you really want to go the extra mile to make a difference, why not consider running for city council yourself?

Most people are unaware of the fact that, when it comes to issues surrounding public water supplies, city council members hold the key to the decision-making process in most areas. In many cities, a few bad apples have, for whatever reason, repeatedly blocked efforts to remove fluoride, for instance, even when a large segment of the local population supports its removal.

Nevertheless, almost every recent victory against water fluoridation was made possible because city council members voted to end it. Whether based on the convincing evidence presented before them, or just plain personal conviction, council members that voted against water fluoridation are the very reason why hundreds of thousands of Americans will no longer be subjected to forced medication with fluoride.

You might be thinking to yourself, running for public office is difficult and costly, right? Well, it can be, depending upon the size of your city, and upon who else is running for the position during a particular term. But it can also be quite simple -- much simpler, in fact, than many people probably think it is.

Most municipalities in the US voluntarily fluoridate their water supplies, which means ending the practice is easier than people think

Firstly, most US states do not have statewide laws that mandate water fluoridation. This means that local communities decide for themselves whether or not to comply with federal government recommendations about fluoride. City council members, in other words, are essentially in charge of whether or not to fluoridate.

Some states, however, do have mandatory fluoridation laws. You can view that list here:

Secondly, there is no federal mandate that any US community fluoridate its water supplies. Most communities and their council members simply comply voluntarily because they trust the government recommendations, and likely have not investigated the science for themselves. So the practice continues indefinitely until someone speaks up loudly enough, and a majority of council members are convinced to end it -- or until someone runs for office that is educated about fluoride.

You see, in many of the most recent cases, fluoridation was successfully ended because local community members took the time to educate their council members about the dangers of fluoride. And in some cases, concerned members of the community actually ran for public office themselves and won, and made it one of their priorities to fight against fluoridation.

In other words, since city council positions are not necessarily in the limelight of mainstream politics -- most people focus on state and federal politics, after all -- running for local office is a viable endeavor for practically anyone.

If you have the drive to make a difference and the willingness to work hard, then you are an eligible candidate. So will you take the opportunity to fight for health freedom?
