Updates on the Lawsuit Against the EPA to Stop Water Fluoridation

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • In 2016, the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) and coalition partners filed a petition asking the EPA to ban the deliberate addition of fluoridating chemicals to U.S. drinking water under Section 21 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)
  • The EPA denied the petition in 2017. In response, FAN and coalition partners filed a lawsuit challenging the EPA’s denial of their petition
  • Over the past 19 years, FAN has facilitated the removal of fluoride from the water supplies of hundreds of communities across North America, Canada and Europe. This week, we’re helping FAN raise funds to pursue this lawsuit, and I encourage you to make a donation to this important cause
  • Scientific investigations have revealed fluoride is an endocrine-disrupting chemical and have linked it to the rising prevalence of thyroid disease, which in turn can contribute to obesity, heart disease, depression and other health problems
  • A landmark U.S. government-funded study published in 2017 found a strong relationship between the level of fluoride in pregnant women’s urine and the subsequent IQ of their offspring. The higher the fluoride levels of the urine of the women, the lower the IQ of the children

Since 1945, it's been claimed that adding fluoride to drinking water is a safe and effective way to improve the public's dental health. Since then, many have bought into this fallacy hook, line and sinker, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

One of the reasons why it's so important to eliminate water fluoridation is because this chemical is very difficult to filter out. You can remove some or a significant amount using distillation, reverse osmosis and special filtration media, but the vast majority of water filters that people have access to will not remove fluoride.
