Report : Fluoride negatively impacts salmon

    

Bellingham residents value clean and safe water free of fluorosolic acid with heavy metal contaminents such as lead, arsenic and mercury

Take action to protect clean and safe drinking water in Bellingham

Bellingham currently has one of the nation's cleanest drinking water supplies largely due to the millions spent protecting this resource.

We are called again to protect Bellingham's drinking water as it was protected in 1992 and 1997 against fluoridation schemes. We will need to work hard to continue to protect this precious resource.

Will Bellingham turn into a city where a large portion of the population drinks bottled water and the tap water is avoided and ridiculed as in other cities? 

Opportunities to Take Action to protect clean and safe drinking water
 
1) With more cities across Washington and and the nation choosing not to fluoridate their drinking water, fluoridation interests are increasing looking to force the issue on cities and town through state legislatures and on the federal level.   As an example, an attempt to force all cities within Oregon to fluoridate was made in 2005 which was narrowly rejected.
 
Contact your state and federal representative today and urge them to not attempt to force fluoridation on cities through preemption.  (see contact info below).  Cities such as Bellingham should have the right to make their own decisions concerning their drinking water supplies and not have fluorosilicic acid forced upon them.
 
2) Download, print out campaign material here and pass around to family members, friends and others concerned with clean and safe water:
 
a.  One page flier "5 Reasons To Reject Fluoridation" (very popular)
 
b. Two page : Brochure [front] : [back]  (print out then copy to make double sided tri-fold brochure.  See .jpeg format below if needed). 
 
c. Fluorosilicic Acid Chemical Data Sheet (The manufacture's list of the chemical components of the likely fluoridation mixture containing heavy metals such as lead, mercury and arsenic)
 
You can also mail any of the documents to friends, family and anyone you know concerned about clean drinking water in Bellingham
 
3) Keep up to date on the fluoride issue in Bellingham at http://www.noforcedfluoride.org.  Send the link to your friends and family to let them learn about the issue.  The web page is now regularly updated "Bellingham Fluoride News Update."  The site links to literally hundreds of original source materials, scientific studies, and PDC forms, where one can study the matter.
