The MMWD is using Fluoride chemicals that are NOT approved FOR THE PURPOSE they are put into our water.
Hydrofluorosilicic acid (fluoride chemicals used) are the only chemicals added to our water supply FOR THE PURPOSE of having a MEDICAL EFFECT on our bodies; and must be approved by the FDA,
However, HFA is NOT approved by the FDA. The other chemicals that are added to our drinking water supply are added to treat the water, (not people), and are approved by the National Sanitation Foundation, (NSF); they do not need to be approved by the FDA.The NSF approval of hydroflurosilicic acid is meaningless and irrelevant.
Because the MMWD is using a fluoride compound that is NOT APPROVED FOR THE PURPOSE it is being put into our water, the MMWD is in violation of the ordinance that resulted from the 1972 and 1977 votes.
The MMWD should never have put water fluoridation up for a vote in 1972 and 1977 because it violates the law of required individual consent when medicating a person.
preserved by Article 1, Section 1 of the California Constitution.
Email and/or call the MMWD Board Members, and Demand that they TAKE A VOTE to pass an ordinance to end water fluoridation now.The MMWD Board has the authority to do this, (http://marinwater.org/209/Board-of-Directors)

Contrary to what the MMWD states, they are also not bound by the 1995 CA state mandate because of the "outside money" clause, the already existing CA Health and Safety law CODE SECTION 104830-104865, which provides kids with free topical fluoride treatments in their schools, and the CEQA law that requires the MMWD to stop water fluoridation until an environmental study on its impact is done.
Fluoride is more toxic than lead, (http://fluoridealert.org/issues/health/), and these fluoride chemicals cause lead to leach from the pipes into our drinking water, (http://leadsafeamerica.org/fluoride-and-lead/)!
The Sonoma-Marin Clean Water group attempted to collect enough signatures to get water fluoridation on the ballot this fall, but they did not collect enough signatures to do this. Water fluoridation will NOT be on the ballot in the fall. We need to act now and demand that the MMWD board members TAKE A VOTE to pass an ordinance to end water fluoridation.
The MMWD Board has the authority to do this,
Informed consent is a legal obligation due from a physician to his patient, an obligation which may not be met by the physician's skillful treatment of his patient. It may only be met by the treating physician obtaining from his patient knowing authorization for carrying out the intended medical procedure. The physician is required to disclose whatever would be material to his patient's decision, including the nature and purpose of the procedure, and the risks and alternatives. The disclosures should be made by the physician to his patient, and not through use of consent forms which are not particular to individual patients. To minimize any subsequent claim by the patient that there was a lack of adequate disclosures, the physician should record in the patient's chart the circumstances of the patient's consent, and should not rely on the patient's unreliable ability to recall those circumstances.
