After boldly mandating water fluoridation in southern California, California State's Proposition 65 proposed 'fluoride and its salts' as a high priority for investigation of potential cancer causing properties.
AMAZINGLY... the American Dental Association's countermeasure was to provide $200,000.00 "to assist in our effort to prevent the placement of fluoride and its salts on the list of chemicals known to the State to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity..."
WHY NOT PUT THIS MONEY INTO
With respect to mandating / forcing water fluoridation in San Diego, California in 2007-2008; on May 29th of 2009 the California State Proposition 65 Carcinogen Identification Committee provided the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment advice on the relative priority of 38 chemicals for possible Hazard Identification. The committee also recommended 9 of these 38 chemicals be placed in a ‘high’ priority group, including fluoride and its salts as number 5 of 38 in high priority for further study. Silicofluoride, ingested from hydrofluorosilicic acid fluoridation and sodium silicofluoride fluoridation, is included in the 'group' category 'fluoride and its salts'. read more at source
As a countermeasure, the American Dental Association responded by granting the California Dental Association $200,000.00 to "assist in our effort to prevent the placement of
fluoride and its salts on the List of Chemicals Known to the State to Cause Cancer or
Reproductive Toxicity that is produced by the State of California, Environmental Protection
Agency, Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA). The Safe Drinking Water
and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) requires the governor to publish this list of
toxic chemicals each year. OEHHA is currently considering fluoride and its salts for inclusion in
the Proposition 65 listing."
You would think the American Dental Association and the California Dental Association should like to end the debate on fluoride/fluoridation by allowing proper State-wide investigation into potential health harms.
