(NaturalNews) The latest community to stop poisoning its water supply with toxic fluoride chemicals is Bourbon, Indiana. According to The Pilot News, the town council recently voted unanimously to stop lacing the water supply with the known neurotoxin after conducting much research on the subject, and after learning that water fluoridation is not mandatory in the first place.

"I see no reason to continue with it," said council president Les McFarland, who also explained how he conducted extensive research on both sides of the issue prior to coming to this conclusion. After reviewing all the data, and considering a letter written to him from James Powers of the Indiana Water Fluoridation Program, it was clear to both him and the rest of the council that fluoride needed to go.

The fluoridation issue first arose last month when the town's water inspector told Mike Shoda, head of the water department, that no law required the town to add fluoride to its water supply. And because the so-called science that claims benefits to fluoridation is shaky, at best, the council members made the decision to restore freedom of health choice for all local residents by discontinuing the forced medication of their water supply.

The issue of water fluoridation has come up in many towns and cities across the United States and Canada in recent years. At least 37 communities ended their water fluoridation programs last year according to the Fluoride Action Network (FAN), and many more have already, or are slated to, end their programs this year (http://www.naturalnews.com).

Proponents of water fluoridation claim ingesting it will help prevent tooth decay. But the prevailing science does not lend credence to this claim, and actually shows that ingesting fluoride is extremely harmful to bodily organs and brain function. Even the highly-respected Physicians Desk Reference notes that fluoride ingestion, particularly among sensitive individuals, can cause serious health problems.

"In hypersensitive individuals, fluorides occasionally cause skin eruptions such as atopic dermatitis, eczema or urticaria," says several editions of the manual. "Gastric distress, headache and weakness have also been reported. These hypersensitivity reactions usually disappear promptly after discontinuation of the fluoride" (http://www.naturalnews.com).

But when fluoride is forcibly added to a public water supply, there is no feasible way to discontinue use apart from extensive, whole-house, reverse-osmosis water filtration systems and careful avoidance of exposure to unfiltered water in public places and at restaurants. In short, lacing the water supply with a neurotoxin that negatively effects millions of people is hardly a logical public health measure, and must be stopped everywhere.
