Voices of Franklin: Fluoridegate (video)

Franklin resident Rich Aucoin sends along the link to this hour long documentary on fluoride.

FLUORIDEGATE is a new documentary that reveals the tragedy of how government, industry and trade associations protect and promote a policy known to cause harm to our country and especially to small children who suffer more than any other segment of the population. While their motivation remains uncertain, the outcome is crystal clear: it is destroying our nation!

Voices of Franklin: How many ounces of Franklin's medicated municipal tap water to ingest daily?

Dear Health Board members:

In light of your decision last year to continue fluoridating Franklin inhabitants through the public water supply, medical best practice principles require that you provide residents with dosage information.

As you are aware, recent studies have shown, and federal health officials have warned, that ingesting too much fluoride poses various health risks, ranging from fluorosis of the teeth and bones to impaired brain development in children. Therefore it is necessary now for responsible Franklin parents to begin carefully monitoring and controlling the amount of municipal tap water that is being ingested by the children for hydration and through cooking.

We have already contacted state and federal health officials for this important information but they will not say how much fluoridated tap water is safe to consume because fluoridation is ordered by local officials, not state or federal. According to MA General Law Chapter 111, you are 100% responsible for the drugging of our water and therefore are responsible for publishing the dosage recommendations.

Please advise as soon as possible: How many ounces of municipal tap water per day are optimal? By optimal, we mean the number of ounces that will both provide your program's intended benefits and also not expose Franklin's inhabitants to the growing list of fluoridation's side effects. Please specify your recommended daily ounces for adults, children, infants, and those on dialysis.

Thank you in advance.

"Is tooth health more important than brain health?"

From the Franklin Fluoride Council via email this week:

Big news. The truth about artificial fluoridation is finally coming to light. And it is much worse than we thought.

Harvard Study Finds Fluoride Lowers IQ

Excerpt 1:
NEW YORK, July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Harvard University researchers' review of fluoride/brain studies concludes "our results support the possibility of adverse effects of fluoride exposures on children's neurodevelopment." It was published online July 20 in Environmental Health Perspectives, a US National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences' journal (1), reports the NYS Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF)
Excerpt 2:
"It is senseless to keep subjecting our children to this ongoing fluoridation experiment to satisfy the political agenda of special-interest groups," says attorney Paul Beeber, NYSCOF President. "Even if fluoridation reduced cavities, is tooth health more important than brain health? It's time to put politics aside and stop artificial fluoridation everywhere," says Beeber.
Watch for Franklin Fluoride Council's upcoming mailings to Franklin parents warning them about the now-documented dangers of administering uncontrolled dosages of industrial-grade sodium fluoride to children, without parental consent and without even a minimum of medical best practices observed.
The Board of Health is administering a controversial drug without a license and without even the patients' consent. This is a clear violation of Nuremberg principles and basic human rights.

It is time for the Town of Franklin's Board of Health to do the right thing. Lift their risky fluoridation order so we can start drinking our water without worry like our neighbors do.

Franklin Fluoride Council

The Franklin Fluoride Council has posted a new article on "Dental Fluorosis Alert"

What is the Franklin Fluoride Council? From the About Us page we find:
Franklin Fluoride Council is an alliance of 1,463 Town of Franklin residents who withheld their consent in 2011 to being medicated with uncontrolled dosages of sodium fluoride through the town's drinking water.

This website is your free community portal to all the latest mainstream fluoride news and information, important facts you won't hear from local officials. 
In spite of our very real concerns about artificial fluoridation and our declaration of nonconsent, Franklin's health officials voted to remain part of a minority in Massachusetts who still practice medicine through the drinking water without a license and without patients' consent. 
If our neighbors in Milford, Bellingham and Blackstone and many others are allowed to choose this drug, then why not us? 
Industrial-grade Sodium fluoride is a toxic chemical by-product of the phosphate-mining industry. No one should be forced to take it, particularly in uncontrolled dosages. 
Please join us. Contact the Franklin Board of Health and let them know you also don't consent to being medicated with artificial industrial fluoride through the drinking water.

Franklin should have a choice on fluoride

In case you missed Rich Aucoin's Letter to the Editor, it is reprinted in full here. Thanks for sharing Rich!

To the Editor: 
The US Dept of Health & Human Services warned in January that American children are overdosing on fluoride, causing an increase in dental fluorosis. A group of Franklin residents investigated Franklin's water supply and learned that in 1970 the Board of Health ordered fluoridation, making Franklin families take fluoride every day whether they want to or not. 
Most MA towns remain Pro-choice on Fluoride. Nearby towns like Milford, Bellingham, Hopedale, Blackstone, Mendon and Plainville, for example, all remain Pro-choice. Just as with all other common household medications, if people want fluoride they can easily get it. There's no reason to force it on everyone. 
Even licensed physicians cannot force their patients to take a medication, nor would any responsible doctor recommend ingesting a drug in uncontrolled dosages. So it stands to reason that unlicensed practitioners such as the Board of Health members should not be doing these things either. 
Even though the Board members don't dispute that individuals have a basic human right to choose their own meds, they nonetheless refused a request last month by concerned Franklin residents to restore Fluoride Choice to Franklin. The Board said it lacks the authority to end its own policy and referred the residents to the Attorney General. 
However, Chief AG Attorney Margaret Hurley disagreed with the Board on May 6th, saying that Mass Gen Law Chapter 111 makes local health officials responsible for enforcing medical freedom. Still the Board said no to Choice. 
By blindly continuing an unfair and outdated fluoridation policy even as fluorosis rates are on the rise, the Board members are exposing the town to unnecessary health and legal risks. 
It is time to bring Fluoride Choice back to Franklin, which will also save taxpayers $35,880 every year in fluoridation-related costs.

Rich Aucoin,
Franklin resident
