A coalition of environmental, medical, and health groups have joined forces in a huge, unprecedented lawsuit that is suing the U.S. #EPA to ban artificial water fluoridation. The groups behind the breakthrough case have served the EPA with a petition that includes more than 2,500 pages of scientific documentation on the dangers of fluoride in the water supply, detailing the risks to human health.
Among the research presented in the study, is new evidence that quantifies #fluoride’s potential to lower #IQ in children.
With over 100 animal studies and over 50 human studies now documented proving fluoride’s neurotoxicity, the U.S. government has been prompted to fund a series of new studies.
The undeniable new data is set to force a complete ban on #fluoridation of the water supply right across the United States.
The coalition hopes that the ban will have a global impact, with countries worldwide expected to follow the example after reviewing the research.
The Fluoride Action Network (FAN), along with a coalition of environmental and public health groups has filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in response to their denial of our petition under Section 21 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) seeking a ban on water fluoridation.We believe this lawsuit is an unprecedented opportunity to end the practice once and for all in the U.S., and potentially throughout the world, based on the well-documented neurotoxicity of fluoride.
You may read the official complaint here. According to FAN's attorney and adviser, Michael Connett: "This case will present the first time a court will consider the neurotoxicity of fluoride and the question of whether fluoridation presents an unreasonable risk under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). And, in contrast to most other legal challenges of Agency actions, TSCA gives us the right to get the federal court to consider our evidence 'de novo' — meaning federal courts are to conduct their own independent review of the evidence without deference to the EPA's judgment.
