While the science about the benefits of fluoride remains in debate, four simple reasons exist for elimination of the chemical from public water supplies.

- We put fluoride in water, intending to build enamel in children’s teeth. But fluoride is a program of mass medication with no dosage control among the recipients. Drinking more glasses of water to stay healthy brings a heavier dosage.
- Controversy over fluoride has persisted since it was first put into water supplies in 1945. As opposition has focused on fluoride health side effects vs. the benefits to the human tooth, our board should halt fluoride injections as an exercise of caution.
- Fluoridation is legally voluntary, though the water board has no indemnity from suppliers as to the grade and origins of fluoride.
- Ending fluoride treatments respects members of the general public who are our customers, leaving decisions about youth dental care to responsible parents.
As early as January the three-member board of the Hixson Utility District will vote on pleadings from customers to halt injecting fluoride into the water of 26,000 customers. The board is requesting public comment at this email portal.

The perpetrators of the forced-fluoridation experiment may want to take a look at Article 6 of the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights, which is on the UNESCO website.
“Article 6 – Consent
1. Any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention is only to be carried out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned, based on adequate information. The consent should, where appropriate, be express and may be withdrawn by the person concerned at any time and for any reason without disadvantage or prejudice.”
Clearly the forced-fluoridation experiment (i.e. the dumping of toxic industrial fluoride pollution into public water supplies) violates human rights.
