Manataka American Indian Council



U.S. Government Planning Mass Poisonings on Reservations!




U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD) recently announced that the Aberdeen Area Tribal Chairmanís Health Board will receive $249,996 in funding for dental health care, specifically early childhood caries prevention and water fluoridation.


Medicating specific mass populations with unneeded, unnecessary and potentially harmful chemicals is wrong!


The Manataka American Indian Council adamantly opposes efforts of the U.S. government to force Indian people living on reservations to consume potentially lethal doses of a chemical by-product called fluoride for the following five reasons:


Fluoride kills animals, birds, fish and insects Ė damages plant life.  Government studies from around the world prove fluoride has a devastating affect on the animal and plant kingdoms.   There is no way to keep public water from being consumed by animals, birds, fish and insects. What will fluoride do to vegetable gardens, cattle, and family pets?   What you do to Mother Earth, you do to yourself.


Mass medicating the public is morally wrong!  Mandated treatment of the public in the absence of any public health threat such as epidemic disease is just plain wrong. The government does not have the right to mandate fluoride injection into our bodies.


Fluoride does not prevent tooth decay.   Scientific reports show there is not sufficient evidence to prove fluoride is effective in preventing tooth caries.


Toothpaste companies warn against swallowing fluoride toothpaste (read the side panel of any toothpaste  box).  Putting fluoride in public water is contrary to the advice of every dental product company.  Fluoride toothpaste is intended to be spit out - not swallowed like drinking water.


Fluoride is not approved by the Food & Drug Administration for consumption by humans.
