Minnesota statute, (144.145) requires the fluoridation of the municipal water supply.

Hydrofluosilicic Acid is an industrial by-product of the phosphate industry that is added to the water for the, “prevention of tooth decay.” This chemical is too toxic to be legally discharged into the environment. Fluoridation of the water supply violates the ethic of informed consent set forth in the Nuremberg Code and is bad medical practice. Fluoridation has never been proven, “safe and effective,” with substantial evidence. According to the FDA, fluoride is a “drug.”

By this definition, the practice of fluoridation has been used as a massive experiment in Minnesota for over 40 years.

MD’s are required to evaluate their patients prior to prescribing drugs and should also do follow up, yet fluoride is being forced on an entire population without regard for the dose received from water and other sources. Decision makers should not be able to do to the entire state what doctors cannot do to individuals.

To universalize the concept of medicating the water without informed consent makes it morally wrong. One size does not fit all. Medicating the water for the, “greater good” takes away autonomy especially for those who can’t afford filtered water.

Because something has been done for a long time does not make it safe or just.

The fuel additive lead was once thought to be safe. The precautionary principle and due diligence have been ignored for way too long. In 2011 the EPA and HHS lowered the recommended amount of fluoride due to high rates of fluorosis.

Fluoride toothpastes are required to carry poison warnings, yet parents are not warned about ingesting fluoride and it’s potential developmental hazards.

The EPA has classified fluoride as a, “Chemical with substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity.”

No rational person would call for a chemical to be added to the water that could cause brain damage. Fluoride is the active ingredient in many pesticides and is linked to increases in bone cancer, thyroid dysfunction, bone cancer, and lower IQ’s.

To:
Repeal Minnesota statute, (144.145)

Sincerely, [Your name]

MEDIA RELEASE

 

 

National “DNA Warehouse” bill passes; American citizens to become unwilling subjects of genetic researchCCHC calls on President Bush to Veto the Bill

 

 



Minneapolis/Saint Paul
– Yesterday, in a voice vote, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill to authorize the creation of a national DNA warehouse and broad-scale genetic research on the American public.

 

S.1858, passed by the U.S. Senate last December, has been sent to the President for signing.Twila Brase, president of CCHC, makes the following statement:”We are asking President Bush to veto this unethical, immoral, and unconstitutional bill.

 

Congress has voted to strip citizens of genetic privacy rights and DNA property rights. The bill also violates research ethics and the Nuremberg Code.”Soon, under this bill, the DNA of all citizens will be housed in government genomic biobanks and considered government property for government research.

 

The DNA taken at birth from every citizen is essentially owned by the government, and every citizen becomes a potential subject of government-sponsored genetic research.

 

“The public is clueless. S. 1858 imposes a federal agenda of DNA databanking and population-wide genetic research.  It does not require consent and there are no requirements to fully inform parents about the warehousing of their child’s DNA for the purpose of genetic research. Already, in Minnesota, the state health department reports that 42,210 children of the 780,000 whose DNA is housed in the Minnesota “DNA warehouse” have been subjected to genetic research without their parent’s knowledge or consent.

 

“President Bush should not sign this bill.”

Twila Brase
is president of Citizens’ Council on Health Care. She can be reached at 651-646-8935.
