Screening of Documentary Film “The Great Culling” - OWASA Water Fluoridation

The documentary shows how the fluoride chemicals that water utilities add to our drinking water are damaging the health of children and adults. Following the screening of the 90-minute documentary, there will be a question-and-answer session that is sure to be both lively and informative. A group of concerned citizens is offering a free screening of the documentary film in response to the February 2nd Orange Water and Sewer Authority (OWASA) water emergency, which was a wake-up call regarding the dangers of water fluoridation. On that day, a series of operational mistakes by multiple OWASA employees increased fluoride levels to 8.4 times the maximum allowable level. One-time ingestion of even small amounts of fluoride can lead to acute fluoride toxicity, particularly in children. In the aftermath of the fluoride emergency, numerous citizens requested that the OWASA Board impartially review the scientific evidence concerning fluoride’s toxicity. Yet, according to an area resident, the OWASA Board made a “super-quick decision without carefully deliberating.” This film screening invites local residents to learn more about the scientifically well-documented risks of adding corrosive and neurotoxic fluoride (in the form of hydrofluorosilicic acid) to our drinking water. Recognizing that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers fluoride a drug, the event also provides an opportunity to consider how mandatory water fluoridation violates long-established ethical and legal norms. Citizens have a basic right to informed consent before being subjected to any medical procedure. Most countries around the world do not fluoridate their water, considering the practice unethical, unscientific, and outdated. Many U.S. cities also have banned water fluoridation. Come to the screening prepared to learn, ask questions, and contribute to efforts to protect our children and our environment. Details: Saturday, May 20, 3 p.m. Free. Chapel Hill Public Library, Meeting Room A, 100 Library Dr, Chapel Hill. www.facebook.com/FluorideFreeChapelHillCarrboro, 919-448-4888

Lectures

Lecture on Pantanal: The Wonderful Wetland of Brazil - Chapel Hill Bird Club

David and Judy Smith will be the featured speakers and will talk about the Pantanal: The Wonderful Wetland of Brazil. The Pantanal, the world’s largest wetland (10 times larger than the Everglades), is an enormous basin, mostly in central-western Brazil, that floods 2-5 meters deep in the rainy season. In the dry season, the water recedes into streams and pools, concentrating the fish and the birds and animals that feed on them. The result is one of the most abundant and diverse wildlife areas on earth, a paradise for the nature traveler. David and Judy Smith visited the southern Pantanal in October of 2015 and the northern Pantanal in July of 2016, and they will share photos and a few movies from their trips.
