WASHINGTON ACTION FOR SAFE WATER
TO OCCUPY SEATTLE MUNICIPAL BUILDING MONDAY AT NOON
SEATTLE WATER IS NOT SAFE TO DRINK
DUE TO LEAD, ARSENIC, SILICOFLUORIDES ADDED
October 31, 2011
On Monday at noon, members of Washington Action for Safe Water will occupy the foyer of the Seattle Municipal Building to deliver this press release, hand out our fliers, and as a group deliver them to the mayor, city council members, and city attorney. Bill Osmunson, Bellevue Dentist, and president of WASW, says: “Seattle adds the cheap, commercial, toxic waste version of fluoride to our water, known as silicofluoride. It is not FDA approved. It is not pharmaceutical grade. It contains lead and arsenic. And it leaches lead from pipes.”

On Monday at noon, members of WASW and other safe water groups will occupy the foyer of the Seattle Municipal Building to deliver this press release, hand out fliers, and as a group deliver them to the mayor, city council members, and city attorney.
Fluoride Class Action, a sister group which takes a tougher line and warns of coming lawsuits, has served Notice of Potential Liability on the city.
Osmunson says, “Washington Action for Safe Water is demanding a written response and demanding that this issue be put the issue on the Seattle City Council agenda. All candidates for office are being asked if they will put this issue on the agenda and give it a fair hearing.”
According to James Robert Deal, Lynnwood attorney and vice-president of WASW, “In 2004 we learned that tap water in old Seattle schools contained lead at up to 1.6 parts per million, an extremently high level, higher than the fluoride level. Old schools contain brass pipes and fittings which can be from 8% to 30% lead. Much money has been spent replacing pipes, but the lead leaching problem in Seattle schools has not been solved. Ending fluoridation would stop most lead leaching and stop the dumbing down of our children.”
According to Ossmunson, who also has a degree in public health, “The CDC admits that 41% of children age 12-15 suffer from some degree of dental fluorosis, that 8.6% suffer from mild fluorosis (white spots and some brown spots with up to 50% of tooth surfaces affected), and that 3.6% suffer from moderate and severe fluorosis (white spots and brown spots and sometimes pitting and chalky teeth, with up to 100% of tooth surfaces affected).”
Ossmunson says, “The CDC also admits that the effect of fluoride is topicial only. It makes as much sense to drink fluoride as it would to eat sunscreen.”
Ossmunson continues, “The CDC, ADA, and many other groups advise that infants should not drink fluoridated water nor consume formula made up with fluoridated water. Their kidneys are not developed, and they have trouble excreting it.”
Ossmunson says, “If fluoride is in tap water, it is all food and beverages made with tap water – cola, coffee, beer, reconstituted juices, bread, cereal, canned vegetables, rice, and restaurant food.”
Deal says, “The silicofluoride we drink is cumulative. The body has trouble eliminating it and stores half in bones and other organs. Silicofluoride builds up over a lifetime and causes or worsens hip fractures, arthritis, kidney disease, thyroid disease, and many other maladies.”
Deal says, “The effect of silicofluoride on Hispanics, Blacks, and the poor is greatest. Alveda King, Bernice King, and Andrew Young are leaders in the Fluoride-Gate movement. They see fluoride as the next civil rights issue.”
We will occupy the center of the Municipal Building foyer with our Washington Safe Water sign, which says “Tap Water – Not Safe To Drink – WashingtonSafeWater.com.
