Resolution 3509 to remove fluoride from the City water system passed unanimously and shall become effective immediately. Recently the City of Spring Hill has made a similar move and the City of Waynesboro made the same decision over 12 years ago. Most fluorides used in public drinking water were originally sodium fluoride. This fluoride is a by-product of making aluminum. In recent years the fluoride used has been switched to a by-product of making fertilizer a hydroflurosilicic acid which is what Hohenwald used. Recent studies have proven both forms of fluoride to cause various health problems. Included in these are Alzheimer’s disease/dementia, cancer, genetic damage, kidney impairment and joint pain and arthritic symptoms just to name a few.
