Industrial byproducts don’t belong in our drinking water

December 2010 Sheridan City Council Voted To Fluoridate Sheridan’s Water
To get involved sign the petition and help overturn the decision. Petition sites are at the Good Health Emporium, 45th Parallel, Deines Chiropractic, Buchanan Chiropractic, Atlas Chiropractic, Star Liquor and Bagels & Beyond. Thank You! • Fluoride accumulates in the body. Many studies show that silicofluorides at the levels found in drinking water negatively impact multiple organs and systems in the body. to a Harvard meta-analysis (Choi et al, 2012). • 1:6 Children have a developmental disability (CDC, n.d.). We should work very hard to decrease the amount of toxins our children are exposed to. • Sources of fluoride additives. The chemicals used in water fluoridation are unpurified waste products from the phosphate fertilizer industries scrubbed smoke stacks (CDC, n.d.). The majority of these industrial plants are foreign and do not have to comply with the strict environmental protection laws that regulate toxic exposures like in the United States.

Fluoridation chemicals would add arsenic, lead and mercury to our water

• The City Council Voted to have 1 ppm of fluoride placed into our water supply which is no longer in the acceptable range according to the EPA and Health and Human Services (EPA, 2011). • The World Health Organization’s data on tooth decay and fluoridated water in 24 countries does not support the theory that swallowing fluoride prevents cavities (Neurath, 2005). • Fluoride exposure at the level found in drinking water has adverse effects on children’s neurodevelopment according

At EPA’s request, NAS reviewed new data on fluoride in 2006 and issued a report recommending that EPA update it’s health and exposure assessments to take into account bone and dental effects and to consider all sources of fluoride”

Fluoridation fails the test of reliability and specificity, and, lacking toxicity testing of silicofluorides, constitutes unlawful medical research”
