(NaturalNews) Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the Dallas County Health Department (DCHD) ceased subsidizing the costs of fluoridation in Buffalo. The decision to end fluoridation came as a result of the Board of Aldermen voting to end it. DCHD was not involved in this decision.

Citing high costs that continually raise water prices for local customers, the Board of Aldermen in Buffalo, Missouri, a small town just north of Springfield, recently made the decision to stop fluoridating the public water supply. Members of the board explained that transporting fluoride chemicals is damaging city equipment and trucks, not to mention water pipes that corrode as a result of fluoride exposure.

Buffalo residents had previously voted back in April 2000 to start adding fluoride to the town's water for the first time. A few years later in December 2003, the board determined that the program wasn't working and was too expensive, agreeing to end it once existing fluoride supplies were depleted. That decision was quickly reversed following a vote by the town's mayor, as well as agreement by the health department to cover some of the costs.

But in the years since, town leaders have determined that the fluoride program is still problematic. The fluoride chemicals used are not only damaging the water pipes used to deliver water throughout the city, but they are also eating away at treatment plant equipment and even the trucks used to transport the chemical in bulk.

"It's an acid and it eats the pipes," stated a city engineer from the city of Union, outside St. Louis, about the nature of fluoride. Like Buffalo, Union's Board of Aldermen recently voted 7-1 to end fluoridation after injection equipment was destroyed by its use. "Employees are handling it and they don't want to be."

Science has proven fluoride's neurotoxicity

Practically speaking, adding fluoride to public water makes no sense, either financially or logistically. America's failing infrastructure is only further deteriorating as a result of added fluoride, which is destroying city water pipes and transport equipment. But it is also destroying people's brains, as evidenced by a cohort of published science.

"Fluoride seems to fit in with lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain drain," explained the researchers of a 2012 study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP). Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health, after conducting a systematic review of studies involving fluoride, determined that the chemical is hardly as innocuous as we've all been led to believe.

"The effect of each toxicant may seem small, but the combined damage on a population scale can be serious, especially because the brain power of the next generation is crucial to all of us."

A review of the study, which determined that fluoride damages the brains of both adults and children, the latter of which suffer noticeable decreases in IQ as a result of fluoride exposure, is available here:

Fluoride is forced medication that can't be properly dosed

Even if fluoride did help prevent tooth decay, adding it to water is a form of forced, mass medication. As pointed out by officials from other towns and cities across the country, many of which have also ended their fluoridation programs, there is no way to safely and properly dose fluoride when adding it to water, which puts many people at risk.

"It comes down to choice," explained commission Gene Towne from Boyne City, Michigan, which recently voted to end its 40-year fluoridation program, as quoted by FoodConsumer.org. "I don't see how you can control the dosage (of fluoride that people ingest) if it's in everything. If there's a chance that it could cause any health problems ... this should all come down to your choice."
