Israel Bans Water Fluoridation

The New American
26 August 2014

Israeli authorities last week unveiled a nationwide ban on the controversial practice of adding the chemical fluoride, labeled a “neurotoxin” by a top medical journal this year, to public water supplies as a medical treatment. The decision by the Health Ministry to ban what critics call a dangerous, involuntary mass-medication scheme drew applause from many medical and some dental experts around the world. However, it also prompted outrage and vicious attacks by proponents of fluoridation, who say the chemical can provide benefits to children’s teeth. The ban is a major blow to supporters of using the water supply to medicate the public.

Despite attacks from the establishment press and some professionals and politicians, Israeli Health Minister Yael German decided against allowing municipal governments to have the option to fluoridate public water supplies. She said the decision would allow Israeli parents and doctors to decide on their own whether to provide fluoride to children, in what doses, and in what manner. The order banning the forced consumption of the chemical goes into effect on Tuesday, August 26.

“We congratulate [Health Minister] Yael German for resisting the bullying tactics of fluoridation proponents,” said Dr. Paul Connett, a retired chemistry professor and the director of the anti-fluoridation Fluoride Action Network (FAN). “She has offered the international public health community the model to follow on the fluoridation issue.... We would dearly like to see the same integrity from health officials in countries that continue this outdated, unethical, and reckless practice.”
