Dear Civil Servants:

It is the role of Fluoride Class Action to disseminate accurate information regarding so-called fluoridation and to give free advice to City Councils and other governmental bodies regarding the law relating to so-called fluoridation and what the governmental body should do to avoid being subject to claim for liability.

Several speakers have indicated to the City Council that they have thyroid problems. Fluoride inhibits thyroid activity, and for that reason these speakers have asked that so-called fluoridation be terminated because. Dr. Barry Durrant-Peatfield explains how fluoridation impairs thyroid activity. See the attached summary of the scientific literature on fluoride and its effect on the thyroid.

So far the city of Everett is ignoring these people, treating them as if they are malingering, and as if the harm to them is acceptable collateral damage.

New Hampshire has passed a new law requiring that fluoride warnings be delivered as part of annually advising parents as follows:

Your public water supply is fluoridated. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, if your child under the age of 6 months is exclusively consuming infant formula reconstituted with fluoridated water, there may be an increased chance of dental fluorosis. Consult your child’s health care provider for more information.

Everett should do the same. Federal law mandates that water districts give lead notices. A water district, as

owner or operator of a public water system … shall identify and provide notice to persons that may be affected by lead contamination of their drinking water where such contamination results from … lead content in the construction materials of the public water distribution system [or] corrosivity of the water supply sufficient to cause leaching of lead. … Notice under this paragraph shall be provided notwithstanding the absence of a violation of any national drinking water standard.—g006-.html

Everett does not give lead notice and is violating this law.

Eureka Springs in Boone County Arkansas is still asking suppliers of so-called fluoride for the toxicological studies they presented when they obtained NSF 60 certification. None of the 49 suppliers of so-called fluoride have responded with any information.

Washington law allows so-called fluoridation only with materials with “comply” with NSF 60.

NSF 60 requires a score of toxicological studies be done. See page A5 of the NSF manual.

NSF admits that the toxicological studies are not being done or obtained.

(See transcript of California deposition (, pages 22, 67).

Dr. Arvid Carlsson, Nobel Laureate, holds that the effect of fluoride on teeth is topical only. See:

We sent a letter to Simplot, the vendor of the so-called fluoride which Everett uses to pollute its otherwise pristine waters.  Simplot’s so-called fluoride is NSF 60 approved. For Simplot to win the NSF 60 mark of approval, it had to deliver toxicological studies to NSF proving the safety of the so-called fluoridation materials. I asked Simplot to deliver copies of said toxicological studies to us. Simplot did not respond to my request.

The Simplot letter can be found at.

On May 9, 2012, I asked the Everett City Council and the City Attorney to contact Simplot. See:

Thus far, Everett and the City Attorney have not to the best of my knowledge made demand to Simplot.

It is incumbent upon Everett to contact Simplot and demand that Simplot respond to said request. If Everett fails to do this, it would indicate that Everett prefers to be ignorant on the subject. Preferring to be ignorant after alerts have been raised would constitute recklessness and could  subject Everett to liability and could subject the members of the City Council to individual liability.

Dr. Mark Goldbaum says that so-called fluoridation is safe and effective, but he offers no evidence whatsoever other than endorsements. Endorsements prove nothing.

The Everett City Attorney says that so-called fluoridation using fluorosilicic acid is legal, however, he has not responded in writing or with any detail to my letter dated dated June 6, 2012.

So far the Everett City Council, the Snohomish Health District, and the Everett City Attorney have been duped, suckered, defrauded, swindled, and conned.

Everett has chosen to believe those who have no evidence and to disbelieve those who have evidence. We have to wonder why they prefer to believe a lie. Everett is trapped in a maze and thus far seems to be unable to find the exit.
