Ban Water Flouridation.

WHEREAS water, our most precious resource, is essential to all and the public water supply should be safe for all to drink; and

WHEREAS fluoridated water provides an uncontrolled dose of fluoride to citizens, some of whom may drink significantly large quantities due to their occupation, outdoor activity, special diet, health conditions (such as diabetes mellitus and diabetes insipidus), or medications being taken, and

WHEREAS fluoride is the only substance added to public water for the purpose of treating and preventing a health condition in the body, rather than treating the water itself (such as chlorine being added to kill microorganisms), and many citizens may feel it is not morally or ethically justifiable to dose citizens with this substance or any other forced medication in water without first obtaining their written informed consent, and

WHEREAS the National Research Council in 2006 reported that American infants and young children are being exposed, on a body weight basis, to 3-4 times the amount of fluoride as are adults, and young children’s bodies are especially susceptible to harm from chemical exposures due to their rapidly growing cells and tissues, and

WHEREAS as recent as November 9, 2006 the American Dental Association (ADA) raised concern that parents and caregivers of infants under 1 year of age may wish to use non-fluoridated water when mixing infant milk formula for their babies, and

WHEREAS alternative methods of delivery exist; and we are already over exposed to fluoride in foods and beverages. and

WHEREAS each individual possesses the inalienable right to choose or reject what he or she consumes; therefore

We the undersigned citizens of Kansas respectfully demand that city and state leaders REJECT any considerations for using our public water supply to deliver any product, substance, element or medicine for the purpose of affecting the physical or mental functions of the body of any person consuming such water, and also ask said leaders to REJECT any such initiatives by fluoride proponents.
