(NaturalNews) The cat is out of the bag. Those artificial fluoride chemicals that are added to municipal water supplies all across America are deadly. They also do little, if anything, to prevent tooth decay when ingested. And no amount of gerrymandering by corrupt politicians and the conventional dental industry can contain this harrowing truth from spreading, particularly with regards to what some commentators are now referring to as "Fluoridegate."

The name lends itself from the infamous Watergate scandal that took place during the Nixon Administration years, and is also the title of a new hard-hitting documentary that puts to rest all remaining myths about the supposed benefits of water fluoridation ( But Fluoridegate is also shaping up to be the next major civil rights issue in America, as some members of society are clearly impacted more severely by fluoride exposure than others.

Steve Elwart from covered this issue recently in an editorial entitled, "Is 'Fluoridegate' the new civil-rights scandal?" As it turns out, millions of Americans are suffering from dental fluorosis, kidney poisoning, low thyroid, and other serious health problems as a direct result of fluoride exposure. And in most cases it is children, babies, the elderly, the sick, and even certain ethnic minority groups that are bearing the brunt of fluoride poisoning.

Former water fluoridation advocates call for end to outmoded, unsafe practice

As a brief history, the original campaign to instigate water fluoridation policy back in the mid-20th century was the work of Edward L. Bernays, Sigmund Freud's nephew, who was also the man responsible for launching a campaign to convince women that smoking cigarettes was beneficial. Despite a complete lack of credible science, Elwart's propaganda strategy was so successful that water fluoridation became the norm throughout the U.S. rather than the exception.

But is fluoride actually safe? According to a growing consortium of experts, as well as continually emerging science, the answer to this question is a resounding no. In fact, the evidence against fluoride is now so solid that many prominent community, political, and health authorities are now coming out in bold opposition to it, even though doing so could cost them their careers and reputations.

"I formerly was a strong believer in the benefits of water fluoridation for preventing cavities," wrote former Atlanta mayor and U.N. ambassador Andrew Young in a recent letter to Georgia legislators petitioning for fluoridation mandates to be lifted in the Peach State. Georgia is one of many U.S. states that mandates water fluoridation. "But many things that we began to do 50 or more years ago we now no longer do, because we have learned further information that changes our practices and policies. So it is with fluoridation."

Fluoridating water a civil rights issue, as individuals do not have the option to 'opt out' of receiving it

Young is joined by civil rights leader Gerald Durley in his efforts, as well as by thousands of scientists, dentists, and lab workers at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all of whom now agree that water fluoridation is unsafe and should cease. Acknowledging copious research out of Harvard University and elsewhere that has shown fluoride to retard brain development and lower IQ, these forward-thinking members of the health and science field are advocating for civil rights protection for all against fluoride exposure.

"I am most deeply concerned for poor families who have babies: if they cannot afford unfluoridated water for their babies (sic) milk formula, do their babies not count?" adds Young in his letter. "Of course they do. This is an issue of fairness, civil rights, and compassion."
