SNOHOMISH HEALTH DISTRICT BROADSHEET
Snohomish Health District put on a seminar on March 23, 2012, for dental professionals and brought in Howard Pollack, DDS from California.
What should have been a balanced continuing dental education seminar was turned into a pro-fluoridationist propaganda event.
At the lunch break I placed around 50 of my broadsheets on the tables, one for every attendee
Pollack came back from lunch to find all the tables plastered with fliers. He looked shaken.
He asked me if I knew Paul Connett, and I said, “Of course. He’s my friend, and his wife too”.
When he came to the point in his speech where the Powerpoint mentioned “lead” and “arsenic”,
he simply said, “Lead, no problem there. Arsenic, no problem there”.

November 26, 2012Snohomish Health District Board Members 3020 Rucker Street, Suite 306
Everett, WA 98201-3971
Dear Board Members,
On October 9, 2012, Dr. Mark Goldbaum made a speech to the Snohomish County Board of Health on the subject of fluoridation. The speech was similar to the speech he gave to the Everett City Council on June 6, 2012, and to the Board of Health Program and Policy Committee on August 23, 2012.
Dr. Goldbaum presented the same PowerPoint slides on all three occasions.
One of the board members asked Dr. Goldbaum, “One of the studies talked about fluoridation and the fetus Do you know anything about those studies?”
Dr. Goldbaum said, “There have been studies … [unintelligible]. There has never been any documentation that any fetuses have been harmed by [the] low levels of fluoride in the public water system.”
Dr. Goldbaum is wrong again. There is strong evidence that fetuses are being harmed as their mothers drink fluorosilicic water and eat food made with fluorosilicic water. Fluoride passes through the placental barrier into the fetus. The fetus is not less but more vulnerable than a newborn, because his/her cells are dividing even more rapidly than those of the newborn.
“There were significant differences in the neonatal behavioral eurological [urinary] assessment score and neonatal behavioral score between the subjects in the endemic fluoride areas and the control group. There were also significant differences in the non-biological visual orientation reaction and biological visual and auditory orientation reaction between the two groups. It is concluded that fluoride is toxic to neurodevelopment and that excessive fluoride intake during pregnancy can cause adverse effects on neonatal neurobehavioral development”.
“The … accumulation of fluoride in the brain tissue can disrupt the synthesis of certain neurotransmitters and receptors in nerve cells, leading to neural dysplasia or other damage”.
“The numerical density of volume, the volume density, and the surface density of the mitochondria were significantly reduced. The results showed that chronic fluorosis in the course of intrauterine fetal life may produce certain harmful effects on the developing brain of the fetus”.
A 2012 Harvard review of 27 studies found convincing evidence that drinking fluoridated water lowers IQ. Presumably some of that harm occurs while the fetus is in utero because fluoride crosses the placental barrier, and even more cell division is going on in the fetus than in the infant.
The work of Dr. Phillis Mullenix, one of the writers of the 2006 NRC Report on Fluoride, showed that rats consuming fluoride at a level sufficient to produce the same blood fluoride level as is present in humans who drink “optimally” fluoridated water, showed convincing evidence of brain damage. She lost her position for questioning the safety and effectiveness of fluoridation.
The EPA is developing a Database of Developmental Neurotoxicants. Fluoride is one of the neurotoxicants listed. The database looks at human and animal studies where the exposure to various toxins including fluoride has taken place during pregnancy or during the period before weaning, the EPA concluded that fluoride fell into the class of chemicals regarding which there was “substantial evidence of fluoride’s developmental neurotoxicity”.
Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr., told me about mothers in Atlanta: She said, “As soon as they started adding that stuff to the water, young, healthy wives started having stillbirths – spontaneous abortions”. Alveda says this is a civil rights issue. No correlational studies have been done to confirm or deny this observation of Alveda and the women of Atlanta.
Blacks, Hispanics, and the poor in general are more likely to be the ones with the worst cases of fluorosis – brown spots on the teeth, with pitted and even chalky teeth – and with a disproportionate number of stillborns.
Dr. Mark Goldbaum lacks the qualifications to assert that fetuses are not being harmed by fluorosilicic acid in our water and, as he says, that “fluoridation” is “safe”. The Board of Health needs to consult with real experts on such questions.
I am asking Dr. Goldbaum to study these journal articles and to reply in writing to this letter. I am asking him to change his position on adding fluorosilicic acid to our drinking water.
Sincerely,James Robert Deal, Attorney Informal Coordinator of Everett Safe Water WSBA Number 8103
