Letter to Washington Governor Re Water Fluoridation


The fluoridation materials used to fluoridated drinking water are not tested or approved by any federal or state agency. Fluoridation materials are added to drinking water for health reasons - to prevent tooth decay, and so by law FDA approval should be obtained before adding them to drinking water.

The FDA has shirked responsibility to regulate fluoridation, allegedly having transferred this responsibility to the EPA pursuant to an illegal memorandum of understanding between the FDA and the EPA.

However the Safe Drinking Water Act - which pertains to the EPA - says:

"No national primary drinking water regulation may require the addition of any substance for preventive health care purposes unrelated to contamination of drinking water."

This limitation flows down to the states and to municipalities.

The EPA could not require fluoridation, so it assigned this role to the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) a private trade organization largely controlled by chemical industries that have excess fluoride as toxic waste which they need to dispose of.

In 47 states departments of health allow municipalities to fluoridated drinking water only if fluoridation materials meet the specifications of NSF Rule 60. However, NSF Rule 60 is a fraud. The rule requires that toxicological and health studies be done, but none are done.
