Honolulu Bans Water Fluoridation

    On February 12, 2004, the Mayor of Honolulu approved a bill passed 7-2 by the Honolulu city and
    county council that prohibits the introduction of unnecessary chemical additives, considered to be
    medication, into their water supply. (1)

    Fluoride, neither a nutrient nor essential to health, is added to 66% of U.S. water supplies in a
    failing effort to reduce tooth decay in people who drink
    it. Fluoride is never added to make water safer to drink.

    The new Honolulu law further stipulates that, if the Hawaii state legislature mandates fluoridation,
    against the will of the Honolulu legislature and residents, the chemical dispensed must be a pure,
    FDA-approved, pharmaceutical-grade medicine that will not corrode pipes.

    Currently, over 91% of fluoridating communities use industrial-grade impure silicofluorides which
    have never been safety tested in animals or humans and often requires a buffering chemical water
    additive to neutralize its acidity.

    Honolulu is one of four cities among the nation’s 50 largest cities that serves residents fluoride-
    free water. Ironically, tooth decay crises are occurring in many of those large fluoridated
    cities (2)

    What’s more, cavities are a leading cause of tooth loss and the most tooth loss occurs in Kentucky
    and West Virginia, where 42 percent lost all their natural teeth, but are 96 and 87% fluoridated,
    respectively. Conversely, only 13 percent are toothless in only 9% fluoridated Hawaii. (3, 4)

    Despite decades of dosing Americans with fluoridated water and a subsequently fluoridated food
    supply, 60% of US preschoolers still get cavities (5) – the same amount as never-fluoridated
    Manchester, England,(6) and Northern Ireland
    (7).

    And Africa, the country with the lowest exposure to fluorides and dental care, has the lowest cavity
    rates in the world, according to the World Health Organization.(8) The reason: low sugar diets.

    The rest with references:

    Not such great news for children and young adults whose dental caries rate far exceeds the
    national average.
