The Truth About Fluoride Becoming More Widely Known

Curacao Takes on Fluoridation
At the time of this interview, Dr. Connett was in Curacao, an island in the Caribbean just north of South America with a population of about 140,000, where community leaders have formed a team to rid the island of fluoridation. Curacao was a Dutch colony at one point. The Netherlands began water fluoridation in the '60s, but stopped it in the '70s. Hans Moolenburgh, a doctor from Amsterdam, wrote a book about it, called Fluoride: The Freedom Fight . However, when fluoridation ended in the Netherlands, it was not stopped in Curacao.
"I said to them, 'This is something that we're doing to ourselves.' Many toxic threats are things that are inadvertent that are being done to us by other things, but in this case, this [is a] toxin we're giving to ourselves, and nowhere is that more bizarre than in Curacao," Dr. Connett says.
"When you're travelling from the airport to the hotel, you pass this huge [water treatment] plant. That plant is taking seawater, distilling it, pushing it through reverse osmosis to get pure drinking water, and then they dump hazardous waste from the phosphate fertilizer industry in it to fluoridate this water. I mean, is that Monty Python or what? It's as easy to stop this as turning off a tap. But to turn off that tap, you need the political will of the decision makers."
In this case, should the need arise, pro bono lawyers are also prepared to bring a lawsuit based on the premise that it's unconstitutional to force medicine on people without their informed consent. But before suing, most communities are best off going through the local political process to end water fluoridation. Here, there are no shortcuts. It requires education, organization, dedication, and perseverance.............
