Health freedom victory! Fairbanks, AK, city council votes to end water fluoridation!


www.naturalnews.com

Sometimes organizing like-minded individuals, petitioning, and showing up to city council meetings to express your thoughts actually does make all the difference in instigating positive change. Health-conscious individuals from Fairbanks, Ak., recently achieved a huge health freedom victory when their city council voted almost unanimously to end water fluoridation. The decision followed concerted public outcry and presentation of the facts surrounding the health damage caused by consuming fluoride.

Several years ago, the Fairbanks City Council created a "Fluoride Task Force" to investigat

This is huge!

The first step towards ridding the world of this massive conspiracy against our health. Hopefully this will get the ball rolling and other cities will follow suit.

Then other nations!

This is truly a great victory. The question is has the fluoridation of water gone so far that our waters will never be free of this crap?

Awesome! Now the people in that city can come out of their fluoride induced coma, and inspire other cities to do the same! Peons and pheasants rejoice! S+F

Great news, I hope this trend continues and sparks people's interest in activism in general.

This is good news, and also, it should inspire us more. We all discuss the problems here but are too fear based, or apathetic to organize and stand up on issues. It does work.

Definitely mate. What people need to do is not only address an issue.. but compile a detailed report of the negative effects that issue has, the implications it has for the freedoms or safety of the people and then publicise the issue to show how much support there is for it.

If you want political change you have to at least try to be political..

I think a lot of us are guilty of being in the know but doing next to nothing about it.

I know I am.


Hopefully this inspires more people to do the same as you said. It definitely has me.

Great! One city at a time. I was hoping for a statewide or even nationwide mandate to end water fluoridation.

Well now it looks like we can raise our hopes slightly in that respect.

Way to go Alaska!!

First, a potential ban on genetically modified salmon, and now this.

Now, if only the rest of country could catch up.

Alaskans did not vote to ban GMO Salmon. An Alaskan Senator voted to prevent the FDA from funding GMO Salmon out of a desire to protect the economic interests of his state.

it's thanks to efforts that are coming out of that state ...

Sure. "Efforts' to protect the financial stability of the fishing industry on the West Coast, not altruistic anti GMO sentiment.

Almost all toothpaste have fluorides, so it would be a good idea for these cities to outlaw fluoride toothpaste use in children too. That's a bit more problematic, because toothpastes are private products and not governmental policy, but there has to be a way to at least publicize the fluoridation of toothpaste.

You can purchase Flouride and Sodium Laurel Phosphate Free toothpaste in supermarkets or health stores.. just go hunting and you will find it. And, it will be cheaper than the topical flouride toothpastes on the shelves.

My state has finally forced Flouride in our water this year.. and not many seem to care.. mainly due to not knowing anything other than what the state government has told them. So it's a big fight to get it out of the water supply here now.. just need to find more soldiers to join the cause.

I sent this information to my local representatives and anti fluoride movements hoping it may be able to assist them in the future. Perhaps the evidence provided by the Fluoride Task Force can be submitted to decision makers if this issue comes up in other city's.

Dude, didn't we cover this in the other forum, or was that somebody else?

Who cares what his motivations were. Look, it would be great if we lived in a "Black and White" world and things were always achieved for the right reasons and via the most morally aesthetic means ... but we don't.

I'm glad he didn't publicly attempt to do this for altruistic reasons alone, because it would have failed.

Money talks, and that's the angle he went with. Maybe that's the only reason, maybe it wasn't. It really doesn't matter some times. A good result was achieved, either way

In politics, to achieve something "good", sometimes you've got to swim in the filth.
