  • Chlorine, a non-flammable, poisonous gas, is a major industrial chemical. Although classified as non-flammable, many combustibles will ignite in chlorine, creating toxic byproducts. Chlorine vapors, heavier than air, will remain close to the ground and expand rapidly when released, creating a very hazardous atmosphere.
  • In 1997, The American Public Health Association unanimously passed a resolution urging American industry to stop using the chemical chlorine.
  • When you open the door of your dishwasher after washing, toxic volatile chlorine from dish detergent and tap water is released into the air.
  • Cancer-causing chemicals like chlorine found in many household products are readily absorbed through the skin.
  • Pregnant women in their first trimester who drink five or more glasses of chlorinated tap water a day may be at a much higher risk of miscarriage than women who drink non-chlorinated water.

  • Fluoride’s ‘benefits’ are primarily topical, not systemic. Thus, there is no need to swallow fluoride.
  • Two-thirds of US communities, when given the chance to vote, have voted against fluoridation. Over 60 US communities have rejected water fluoridation since 1999.
  • Excessive exposure to fluoride has been linked to health problems, including arthritis, hip fracture, hypothyroidism, cancer, male reproductive problems, and brain disorders.
  • Children are receiving too much fluoride today, not “too little”. There is a need to reduce, not increase, current exposures.
    As a result of excess exposure to fluoride, near-epidemic numbers of children are developing dental fluorosis (a poisoning of tooth-forming cells).
