Vallone Calls For An End To Fluoridation In NYC
A growing body of evidence reveals the harmful impact of ingesting fluoride in drinking water, including brittle bones and discolored teeth particularly for seniors, children and pregnant women.
On May 15 Councilmember Peter F. Vallone Jr. hosted the city’s first anti-fluoride rally and press conference, where he stood with a coalition of medical professionals, researchers and students on the steps of City Hall to call for the end of fluoride in the city’s drinking water.
He was joined by Dr. Yolanda Whyte, pediatrician from Atlanta; Director of Holistic Dentists in Tribeca Dr. Lewis Gross who also served as an assistant professor of Oral Pathology at Columbia University, Paul Beeber, a leading antifluoride advocate, Carol Kopf, longtime anti-fluoride advocate and founding member of the Fluoride Action Network and fifth grade students from P.S. 122 in Astoria who have spent the year studying fluoridation, and crafted the slogan, “no fluoridation without representation!”
