Fluoride Controversy Heats Up
(Healingtalks) The days of artificial and toxic water fluoridation are coming to an end. The Fluoride Action Network (FAN) has reported that the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), the oldest Hispanic civil rights organization in the US, recently adopted a resolution decrying water fluoridation as a civil rights abuse.
Fluoridation: Illegal Medication of the Public with A Proven Health Hazard
The resolution declares that adding fluoride to water supplies is essentially an illegal mass medication of the general public. Scientific studies repeatedly have shown the dangers of systemic fluoride, especially with pre-existing health conditions, which some public health authorities have ignored (http://lulac.org/advocacy/resolutio…).
“This is about forcing us to be medicated through our drinking water without our consent or full disclosure of the risks,” said Henry Rodriguez, civil rights chairman of the Texas-based LULAC. His group is vehemently opposed to water fluoridation in the US where more than 64 percent of public water supplies is involved.

Based on decades of statistics released by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, water fluoridation has provided no substantial oral benefits for those consuming it. Particularly in the Hispanic community, fluoridated water has now created high rates of dental fluorosis, a condition where teeth become brittle, mottled, and brown.
Fluoridation: Turning the Tide
“Watch what develops now as members of the Hispanic legal community are awakening to this issue,” said Daniel G. Stockin from The Lillie Center Inc., another group working diligently to stop fluoridation. ”
