Fluoride Vote in Sudbury

Fluoride Vote in Sudbury

Tuesday at 7:00pm

There will be a vote on the issue of fluoridation at the annual Water District meeting on May 16, 2017 at 7 p.m. at the Sudbury Senior Center. You must be a customer of SWD to vote.  On May 15, 2017 at 7 p.m., at the Community Room of Goodnow Public Library, there will be a talk on  fluoride. You will have a chance to ask questions on this topic.  Dr. Mike Dolan and Dr. Phyllis Mullenix will both talk and take questions from the audience. 


Putting a toxic chemical like fluoride in the water just to make a small difference and to be affecting so many body systems at the same time is not ethical and is not safe. The Food & Drug Administration accepts that fluoride is a drug, not a nutrient, when used to prevent disease. By definition, therefore, fluoridating water is a form of medication. The most obvious reason to end fluoridation is that it is now known that fluoride’s main benefit comes from topical contact with the teeth, not from ingestion. Even the CDC’s Oral Health Division now acknowledges this. We have no way of controlling the dose and people who drink more water or use other products that contain fluoride get more of it.  People with kidney disease and endocrine or immune system problems may be more sensitive to fluoride.  

Tooth decay does not go up when fluoridation is stopped. Where fluoridation has been discontinued in communities from Canada, the former East Germany, Cuba and Finland, dental decay has not increased but has generally continued to decrease (Maupom√©;2000). Modern large scale studies in the USA failed to find a meaningful difference in the cavity rates of fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas.  The Calgary study is a perfect example of the kind of dishonest statistics used by proponents. The pro-F authors used datasets from 7 years before fluoridation was discontinued to make the claim of increase in cavities in baby teeth, when most of the increase was during the time frame when the water was fluoridated.     


According to the National Research Council (2006), “it is apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain.” In a review of the literature commissioned by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), fluoride has been listed among about 100 chemicals for which there is “substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity.” Animal experiments show that fluoride accumulates in the brain and alters mental behavior in a manner consistent with a neurotoxic agent (Mullenix 1995). In total, there have now been over 100 animal experiments showing that fluoride can damage the brain and impact learning and behavior.  An animal experiment found effects at remarkably low doses (Varner 1998). In this study, rats fed for one year with 1 ppm fluoride in their water using either sodium fluoride or aluminum fluoride, had morphological changes to their kidneys and brains, an increased uptake of aluminum in the brain, and the formation of beta-amyloid deposits which are associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

According to the U.S. NRC, “several lines of information indicate an effect of fluoride exposure on thyroid function.” According to a clinical study by Galletti the thyroid function of hyperthyroid patients was effectively reduced at just 2.3 to 4.5 mg/day of fluoride ion. To put this finding in perspective, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS, 1991) has estimated that total fluoride exposure in fluoridated communities ranges from 1.6 to 6.6 mg/day. This is a remarkable fact, particularly considering the rampant and increasing problem of underactive thyroid in the US and other fluoridated countries. Symptoms of hypothyroidism include depression, fatigue, weight gain, muscle and joint pains, increased cholesterol levels, and heart disease.

Young boys had a five-to-seven-fold increased risk of getting osteosarcoma by the age of 20 if they drank fluoridated water during their mid-childhood growth spurt (age 6 to 8). The study was published in 2006 (Bassin 2006). 

Please come to Goodnow Library on 5/15 at 7 pm for lecture on fluoride!      


  1. A big thank you for all that supported getting the poison out of the Templeton water supply this year at town meeting. Unfortunately it will be another year with the poison. We did learn that the great minds at the Board of Health can put the poison in the water supply but can not take the poison out of the water supply. What does this mean? It means the Board of Health are tools for big business. When in doubt get it out.

    1. Who is going to pay damages when it is proven that Julie and Pete have been right all along. The Town should be accountable to people who, it may be proven that this poison caused Buddy Lorion's Parkinson's disease, and caused the same thing that his brother Gary has. Did fluoride cause Uncle John Miganowicz's parkinsons ? All of these people lived in Baldwinville.. Kind of makes you think, doesn't it. Bev.
