Leader of Activists for Truth, Regina Imburgia wants to set the record straight; Dallas City Council has not voted to halt adding fluoride to the Dallas Water

News headlines are causing confusion about where Dallas is in the process to halt the addition of fluoride to the Dallas water.

Regina Imburgia says, "Activists for Truth was started in May 2013. Our group’s desire is to expose truth and encourage activism. Activists for Truth decided to take on the mission of halting the addition of fluoride to the Dallas Water. Lately there has been tremendous excitement over Dallas City Council's halting of the addition of fluoride to the Dallas water. Unfortunately this excitement is a bit premature. The international on-line newspaper NSNBC published an article on April 25, 2014 with the headline: Dallas Ends Five Decades of Water Fluoridation Saves 1 Million Dollars a Year (http://nsnbc.me/2014/04/25/dallas-ends-five-decades-of-water-fluoridation-saves-1-million-a-year/).

This over-stated NSNBC headline caught the eye of many around the world." Regina Imburgia says, "We want to set the record straight. We have received many calls from people wanting fluoride additions halted in their areas. They are looking for suggestions on how to get it done. We let them know it is not final in Dallas, it is still a work in progress. We have been appealing to the Dallas City Council for five months" she adds, " We are very impressed with the leadership of Councilman Kadane. We also applaud Councilman Griggs for offering his support to get the addition of fluoride halted in Dallas. We are glad Councilman Kadane wants to make this happen soon. We tell people that want fluoride additions halted in their areas to write or call the Dallas City Council and ask them to support Kadans' leadership. When Dallas makes this official, others will be able to use Dallas' decision as an example of a large forward thinking city."

Regina says, "NBC reporter Ken Kalthoff interviewed me after the April 23rd City Council meeting and his news story was aired on April 23, 2014 with the headline Dallas City Council Members Support Dropping Fluoride (http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Dallas-Council-Members-Support-Dropping-Fluoride-256456321.html). On April 25, 2014 the URL remained the same for the Kalthoff article, but the headline was changed to; Dallas Dental Society Opposes Councilmembers' Support of Dropping Fluoride. Additional pro-fluoride text was also added." Regina says, "We intend to look into who did this and if this is standard reporting procedure." The statements that were added on April 25th to the NBCDFW article by Ken Kalhoff were from The Dallas Dental Society.

One of these statements suggests, "scare tactics and misinformation" were used to influence the Council-members to support halting the fluoride. Regina's response to this statements is, "I do not think the council-members would characterize the information we brought forth as scary or misleading." Regina adds, "I believe a statement like this from the Dallas Dental Society is an attempt to marginalize the people bringing forth the truth. A document from the Dallas Water Department shows Raw Fluoride levels exceeded the maximum target levels of the Dallas Water Department. On April 25, 2014 the tap water was at .69 ppl. Dallas water has natural occurring fluoride. We do not need to spend money to purchase more fluoride, contain it, and monitor it."

As reported by Ken Kalthoff, "city officials’ comments dealt with the potential savings and not health issues." Regina says, "I do believe there are many health risks connected to ingesting fluoride". Regina encourages everyone including the Dallas Dental Society to read Robert Carton PhD.'s Affidavit (http://fluorideinformationaustralia.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/affidavit-of-dr-robert-j-carton-phd.pdf) where he states, "My field of study, interest and expertise, and my previous responsibilities as president of the union of EPA professionals, has led me to consider thoroughly, and, in an impartial manner, the scientific basis for the government's claims as to what constitutes a safe level of fluoride in drinking water." Carton states under oath, "It is my best judgment, reached with a high degree of scientific certainty, that fluoridation presents unacceptable risks to public health, and that the government cannot prove its claims of safety."
