In 2015, the federal government finally admitted that Americans were overdosed on fluoride, mainly due to municipalities adding fluoride to tap water. Fluoride has been implicated in neurological diseases such as Autism and Alzheimer’s Disease. Over the past few years, several municipalities have voted to stop automatic fluoridation of municipal drinking water, as it basically amounts to forced drugging of an entire population against their will. Large cities like Portland and Dallas were among the first to take measures to stop the practice. A list of cities that have acted to stop forced water fluoridation since 2009 can be found at the Fluoride Action Network here. Today in 2018, the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) has a federal lawsuit in place against the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) demanding a ban on forced water fluoridation nationwide. The EPA has tried to get this lawsuit dismissed, but so far has failed.
