We posted how each City Council Member Voted below.


City Hall VIDEO January 28th

Below we have a YOUTUBE VIDEO of the City Council Meeting.

Hopefully, we will also have some videos of how inappropriate some City Council Members have been "paying attention". This disrespectful and non-attentive inappropriate action by many of the City Council Members has been ongoing for over a year.


Here is a link to the archive footage.

Send your Thank You messages to these HEROS!

Let us hit Callahan with a few emails!!

We strongly encourage people to do everything that they can to make sure that all the City Council Members

(except for Kadane and Medrano)

are not re-elected.

Here is a list of the City Leaders to oppose in any election:

Mike Rawlings, Tennell Atkins, Monica Alonzo, Scott Griggs, Vonciel Hill, Dwaine Caraway, Rick Callahan, Carolyn Davis, Jerry Allen, Lee Kleinman, Sandy Greyson, Jennifer Staubach, Philip Kingston.

Dogs have a higher IQ than these guys! ...and more concern for Public Health Risks!

Support Adam Medrano in any election.

Unfortunately, Sheffie Kadane will not be running for office again.


Much thanks to David E. for putting together the following video...

"Dallas Vote NO" VIDEO

which was played at the January 28th City Council Meeting.

-- The photos of people holding signs are on the Gallery Page. We could not get everyone in the video. --


This Video shows City Council Members only ---->


It demonstrates how much attention the Dallas City Council Members have towards PUBLIC HEALTH.

As we know, they are not focused on PUBLIC HEALTH nor the HEALTH RISKS of Fluoride.

Watch how many are completely uninterested.


-- SOUND... If the sound doesn't play, un-mute the video.

Move to Item 44 for the VOTE. Action starts after 8 minutes.

(Thanks Jon for filming.)

ADA NEWS – “Texas fluoride vote 'victory for dental health'”



“Editor's note: This report from the Dallas County Dental Society, edited for ADA News publication, describes professional activism in the public debate on community water fluoridation.”

“…"First and foremost, we are obligated to health and safety," DCDS President Dr. J. Christian Miller said in a letter to the Dallas Morning News touting the benefits and safety of fluoridated water. "It is our responsibility as health care providers to support evidence-based practices that are in the best interest of our patients and community…"

“…In the weeks leading up to the meeting, DCDS members and leaders contacted council members, other local leaders, dental and medical organizations, leaders of 20 surrounding cities that purchase treated water from Dallas Water Utilities and local media to voice their support for the program….”

Rick Callahan - City Council Member for District 5

There is not a graceful way to put this... In the opinion of us "Dogs Against Fluoridation", Rick Callahan is pretty stupid. You can tell by his own words, that he is a clueless airhead who NEVER even read any of the scientific literature on Fluoride, nor did he ever really see all the many, many topics on Toxic Chemicals which Howard Garrett has written and talked about for more than a decade.

His main "sin" is that he NEVER BOTHERED TO LOOK, TO STUDY, TO READ. What a doofus! Dogs have more common sense.

sets off a

Dog Fight in the Media...

January 10, 2015

Howard Garrett’s Newsletter about Fluoride (which reaches over 100,000 people) set off a HUGE chain reaction in the PRESS.

See “The Dirt Doctor’s Newsletter here:

The famously respected journalist, Jim Schutze of The Dallas Observer came out with an article on Wednesday, January 14th.

Jim Schutze is also mentioned on this website in “The Debate on Fluoride” on THE ISSUE page.

Just as Jim Schutze predicted, here is The Dallas Morning News article of Thursday Jan 15th:

Following that Dallas Morning News article, D-Magazine (the top magazine for Dallas) came out with an article written by Tim Rogers. Tim Rogers always expresses himself very well in all his pieces.

Friday, Jan 16th, (8am), Howard Garrett was on The Mark Davis Show - 660 AM The Answer - discussing Fluoride.

Podcast - and

Fluoride under review

The Dallas City Council will vote on January 28 on whether to continue fluoridating city water. Fluoride has been added to the water for decades to prevent tooth decay. But fluoride opponents have raised issues about the chemical's neurotoxic effects, and some cities have ditched it. An anti-fluoride Facebook page is an easy way to keep up.

HbN “Health by Nature” Radio Host and Writer, Martie Whittekin, CCN writes about the Dallas Fluoride controversy and also interviews over the radio local Dallas Holistic Dentist, Dr. Philip Koslow, DDS.

Wednesday, January 21, 2015 - PRESS RELEASE

“Fluoridation Will Stop in Dallas Texas When Eight of The Dallas City Council-members Vote No on January 28th; Says Fluoride Action North Texas Leader Regina Imburgia”

“On January 14th, the Dallas City Council heard several dentists oppose the purchase of the fluoridating chemical Hydrofluorosilicic Acid. Fluoridation Status Quo is being challenged in Dallas.”


Dallas Councilman Sheffie Kadane states “We have enough fluoride in the raw untreated water and we can save a million dollars for the city by voting no to the purchase of this chemical. This fluoride is not even pharmaceutical grade; it is a toxic by-product of industry”.

Regina says, “The Media has been silent about the upcoming vote and the serious concerns about the neurotoxin that is being added to the Dallas water. I have pleaded with the reporters to stay and cover our presentations to the Council, but I have been told, they have been instructed not to stay. The people need to hear about how dangerous this chemical is and how unnecessary it is to be adding it to our water that already has .5ppm and (many days even higher amounts) in the raw untreated water.

It must be NOTED:

Many people have not been informed by their District City Council Person about this issue. We continuously hear complaints from people "How come I haven't heard about this important issue?!"

Respected Reporter Robert Wilonsky did report about The Town Hall on Fluoride in City Councilman Sheffie Kadane's District. Other Council People were invited to attend, but did not show up.

YOUTUBE (Town Hall on Fluoride - Oct 20, 2014 ) Very informative !!!!!!!!

PREVIOUS PRESS RELEASE – December 30, 2014

LULAC leader Henry Rodriguez came to Dallas and told the Council on December 2, 2014:

“LULAC the oldest and largest Hispanic civil rights organization...stands firm in its opposition to fluoridation of public is a civil rights violation.”

The area drinking water supply controlled by Dallas includes many suburbs like Irving, Grand Prairie, Cedar Hill, Coppell, etc. Dallas is an International City, many people come here to work, dine and vacation.

It becomes obvious that many City Council Members remain uninformed about the basics of the Fluoride which occurs naturally in the source water. The quantity of Fluoride in the source raw water already meets the criteria for those who want fluoridated water from their tap. There is no need to add more Fluoride at a cost of over a million dollars. It becomes “overkill”, too much Fluoride, if more Fluoride is added, even according to the head of the EPA, Lisa Jackson in a public statement.


It is no wonder that the vast majority of comments come from Anti-Fluoridation advocates.

Anyone can research the subject.

Anyone who has taken a chemistry class knows… --->

original (26).jfif

Fluoride (Fluorine) is the MOST REACTIVE of all elements and it is the most electronegative element. (This means that it attracts electrons in other molecules more powerfully than any other element can.)

So, F- will react with nearly every other element, because it is the most reactive.

When ingested, it easily “overpowers” and replaces or reacts with other chemicals, chemicals which are found throughout the body. And the body makes thousands and thousands of chemicals (an estimated 70,000 enzymes alone.)


Don't miss this! City Council Meeting of 1/14/15

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We argue that it is needless to add Fluoride due to adequate amounts in Raw Source Water (0.5 parts per million), adding more Fluoride is potentially harmful to public health in many ways (see website links), and adding Fluoride is costly (spending more than a million dollars of taxpayer money).

A vote by the City Council which decides this issue of Fluoridated Drinking Water will take place on January 28th, 2015.

The Anti-Fluoride Campaign is simple.

We have been asking the City Council and Mayor: "Please stop adding additional amounts of Fluoride to the Dallas water" as the Dallas source water already contains a substantial amount of Fluoride naturally for those who want fluoridated water.

However, On January 28th 2015, The Dallas City Council VOTED to

continue adding Fluoride to the Tap Water.


Our approach is now different, because the Dallas City council Members are LIABLE for the HEALTH RISKS which exist and which they have been made aware of.
