(NaturalNews) The people in the towns and farmland of Sonoma County are facing a battle over fluoridating the currently un-fluoridated public water supply. Petitions are circulating to keep Sonoma County's public water supply un-fluoridated, but the pro-fluoridation wing within the Sonoma County Water Agency (SCWA) is advancing in the battle, using selective figures and sparse cases in attempting to prove that adding artificial fluoride to the water would actually be "forward progress" for the area's dental hygiene.

Why fight to keep Sonoma County water pure?

Fluoride is the only chemical added to water for the sole reason of being a "treatment" of the people, according to Dr. Paul Connett, director of the Fluoride Alert Network. "Japan and 97 percent of the western European population do not consume fluoridated water, while in the U.S., about 70 percent of public water supplies are fluoridated."

However, the World Health Organization's data show that tooth decay rates have "precipitously declined" in all western countries, irrespective of whether the country ever fluoridated its water. Indeed, most western countries do not fluoridate their water and yet their tooth decay rates have declined at the same rate as the U.S. and other fluoridated countries.

Sonoma, CA must be the next Wichita, KS

Wichita, KS, recently rejected adding fluoride to its water supply last November. Likewise, Sonoma County, which has a population of about 484,000 people, has many people who oppose adding fluoride to their water.

But protecting their natural rights, by educating the public and stopping those with influence over SCWA, will require a substantial effort. Some of the five members of the Board of Directors of SCWA already seem ready to be convinced to go ahead with the proposal.

Emotional tearjerkers and crimes against wisdom

The main tactic of those who want to begin fluoridating the water supply of Sonoma County is being made through a "life is better with teeth" PR campaign, saying some children are getting cavities that cost the county a lot of money to treat. In other words, treat the problem of artificially sweetened foods with artificially fluoridated water. This merely expresses the absurdity that one crime against wisdom could be "redeemed" by continuing to commit more crimes against wisdom.

Although solving dental hygiene issues through fluoridation is scientifically unsupportable, the voices of those who understand nature, health, and sanity need more support.

Action call to keep water healthy and pure

Sonoma County has been a flourishing place to live without fluoride for over 163 years. Nevertheless, the SCWA would begin fluoridating the water supply of Sonoma County for the first time, within 12 months from now, if that proposal isn't stopped.

The amount of a toxic substance to take into the body is an individual's choice. Defeating the proposal to fluoridate the public water of 350,000 Sonoma County residents, as well as the 50,000 Marin County residents who are also supplied by SCWA, is an important battle for health freedom in America today.
