It is taking effect in cities across the nation. Anti-fluoridation activists and knowledgeable consumers have finally tipped the scale, and now Dallas will cease poisoning its water supply with sodium fluoride, saving taxpayers a million dollars annually, along with a few IQ points.
After months of regular visits by citizens to city council meetings, the Dallas City Council decided last week to stop water fluoridation. Perhaps it was economic incentive alone that allowed the council to decide to end five decades of water fluoridation, or the tireless work of citizens who continuously probed council members about why they would fluoridate city water when it has been proven to be very dangerous to human health.
NBC 5 Dallas Fort Worth reported that the results from the last meeting surprised anti-fluoridation activists, who have been trying to get someone to listen to them about this industrial chemical and its risks for years.
