From the Loveland Utilities Commission via the Loveland Reporter-Herald:

Loveland’s Utilities Commission will take a look Tuesday at an issue that has been pretty low on the city’s radar for the past 60 years: fluoridation of city water.

At a meeting slated for 4 p.m. at the Police and Courts Building, 810 E. 10th St., a pair of presentations is planned for commissioners: one seeking the reinstatement of fluoride additives to the city water supply at least to pre-2010 levels, and another seeking the removal of all fluoride.

Members of the public are encouraged to attend to learn more.

At issue is an apparent change in the city’s fluoridation process in the past few years, according to Larry Sarner of Loveland. In an interview Tuesday, he said that state-mandated reports in the past four years showed the city periodically discontinued fluoridation of the city’s water in 2010 because of maintenance at the treatment plant and didn’t resume them until 2013. However, when the city resumed fluoridating the city’s water, it was at about half of the level previous to 2010, Sarner said. According to city figures, only in the past couple of months has it returned to pre-2010 levels.

  1. Fluoridation Opposition is Scientific, Respectable & Growing

    Over 4,600 professionals (including 366 dentists and 568 MD’s) urge that fluoridation be stopped because science shows fluoridation is ineffective and harmful. See statement:

    Nobel Prize winner in Medicine, Dr. Arvid Carlsson, says, “Fluoridation is against all principles of modern pharmacology. It’s really obsolete.”

  2. There are many PubMed scientific studies showing that fluoride in drinking water causes cancer. Go read them.

    We were warned in a 2006 study by Dr. Elise Bassin, DDS, Harvard University, published in a cancer journal, “Cancer Causes Control.” May 2006. It shows a fivefold increase in bone cancer in young people who have consumed fluoride in their drinking water.

    Another PubMed scientific publication shows that fluoride concentration in drinking water correlates with uterine cancer.
    “A significant positive correlation was found between fluoride concentration in drinking water and uterine cancer mortality in 20 municipalities.”

    Cancers of the oral cavity and pharynx, colon and rectum, hepato-biliary and urinary organs were positively associated with water fluoridation. This was also the case for bone cancers in male, in line with results of rat experiments. Brain tumors and T-cell system Hodgkin’s disease, Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, melanoma of the skin and monocytic leukaemia were also correlated with fluoridation.
