Fluoride is a toxic chemical that should never have been added to drinking water. Recent dental research show that fluorides benefits are topical via toothpaste rather than systemic ingestion.
The ADA in the US recommend parents not to use fluoridated tap water to reconstitute formula milk. If it is not safe for babies then why is an entire population being subjected to mass medication of an uncontrollable dose of fluoride? It is against our human rights. We have the right to say what we consume. No government or local authority has the right to drug us.

The World Health Organization does not consider fluoride as an essential mineral element. So, no illness or disease (including dental decay) can result from being fluoride deficiency. There is in fact, no such thing as being fluoride deficient. You can however get too much fluoride. Fluoride toxicity shows up as dental fluorosis – a condition that both Canada’s Health Measure’s Survey and the CDC claim effects 41% of teens. The Canadian Pediatric Society also states, “Fluoride prevents caries mainly by its topical effect…Ingested fluoride, on the other hand, has little effect on caries but contributes significantly to the development of… Read more »

Men of science have spoken passionately against fluoride and fluoridation. Phillipe Grandjean has remarked on the lack of good studies on fluoride’s affect on the brain. (though we’ve been putting it in the water for 60 years) Dean Burk called it public murder on a grand scale after heading a department at the American Cancer society and studying and working there for 34 years on groundbreaking lifesaving research. Aarvid Caarlson winner ofthe 2000 Nobel Prize in medicine advised the government of Sweden and recommends pharmacologically active substances not be added to the environment. nor medication given to the public instead… Read more »

I will say again, fluoride needs to be removed from all municipal water supplies.

– they do not measure the dose going in accurately.; You and the kids are being drugged against your will and consent!
– it is a classified neurotoxin- it eats thru concrete!
– it attracts heavy metals into the body, causing Alzheimers!

Thanks for taking time on this issue.

If Fluoride Free Cornwall wants to challenge water fluoridation, they will need to quit talking about the medical issues the surround fluoridation . . . and quit mentioning the constitution. Those issues are totally irrelevant and are best avoided altogether. What is of relevance is a ruling by a judge from the Ontario Superior Court that gives patients the right to refuse medication, even if the patient’s mental condition may be a cause of concern. As a result of that ruling, NO physician in Ontario has any legal authority to forcibly administer medication. Medical staff at nursing homes are required… Read more »

Fluoride was used by Hitler during WWII against the Jews in the camps to keep them calm before he exterminated them. Fluoride is found in toothpastes and other items and it is a highly toxic poison. Many cities in the US are banning fluoride and Calgary has done this just recently. Fluoride destroys teeth and bones along with many other ailments.

HARRY VALENTINE offers sound advice and I subscribe to his common sense approach to this potentially contentious issue. The use of fluoride is a municipal issue, not provincial or federal. Lobbying your councilor of choice six months prior to the next municipal election would in all likely hood achieve the most desired results. To be perfectly democratic this issue should lie in the hands of the electorate via a simple yes or no question on the voting ballot. No real additional cost to the taxpayer, fair to all and removes the politics from the decision making process. Win win. No… Read more »

I think no. Natural water is found to contain between 0.1 and 2.4 ppm of fluorine. Fluoridation only adds about 0.7-0.8 ppm into drinking water, or 7 MICROgrams per liter of water. Fluorine poisoning takes 32 to 64 mg/kg (intestinal discomfort, about 0.2 mg/kg, or 8mg for the average adult), so that’s not really a threat. There are no known side effects to mild fluoride ingestion. However, and I’m quoting directly here, The US Task Force summarized the work: “According to the… rules of evidence, strong evidence shows that fluoridation is effective in reducing the cumulative experience of dental caries… Read more »

ANTOINE to go a step further I have often listened to opponents to fluoridation cite that a significant number of European countries do not fluoridate. They omit what you have offered about the natural presence of fluorine in water. And of course they do not talk about the fact that certain European countries rather than adding additional fluorine to the water supply choose to add fluorine to table salt instead. However you slice it the resultant benefit is delivered to the vast majority with as you stated no adverse effects. Perhaps there is a conspiracy theory that could better explain… Read more »

The natural fluoride that occurs in drinking water in some locations is CALCIUM FLUORIDE . . . . also known as fluorspar (CaF2) and is relatively benign. Except that it is possible to also make jewellery from sintered (compression moulded) CaF2 . . . . this stuff carries a high price. Sodium Fluoride (NaF) is a by-product of the aluminium smelting process . . . to separate Aluminium from oxygen (Al2O3 . . . the natuiral state), the smelters add cryolite (Na2AlF6 . . sodium-aluminium-fluoride) to lower the melting temperature. When electrolysis is applied, the oxygen is liberated and the… Read more »

You want a fair shot at getting fluoride out of the cities drinking water?? remove the Mayor from sitting on the board of the EOHU, due to conflict of interest yet again. You can not have a council vote on an issue as hot as this with the Mayor running the show here, sorry.

“Mayor Kiljoy” is right here. For years now I have seen Bare Ass on the board of many places and so as to block things from happening for the better. Bare Ass must go now and not a moment later. Very soon you will all see that what I said is all very true and more.

Politicians avoid accountability to make an honest decision by saying they’re not scientists and must leave the decision to the “experts” or the public. But are the “experts” knowledgeable and properly informed about this issue? It has been proven otherwise, again and again. And are the people themselves qualified to decide? Obviously not. So where’s true leadership? Is fluoridation a democratic issue? Or is it an ethical one? Does democracy have the right to practice tyranny on those who rely on democracy for freedom of choice? Does democracy have the right to medicate against informed consent? Are there not glaring… Read more »

VICTOR HAFICHUK I have already stated that I am neutral on the issue of fluoridation simply on the basis that as an individual I am fully able to choose not to drink fluoridated water, period. So my inquiry regarding your comments is to further my understanding and information pertaining to the issue. You stated, to paraphrase, that “experts” have been proven not to be knowledgeable or properly informed ( which really would denote that they are not experts in the first place ) repeatedly. My question quite simply is what expert(s) have proven the other experts you speak of to… Read more »

“Fluoridation is the greatest case of scientific fraud of this century.” – Robert Carlton, Ph.D, former EPA scientist, 1992 The history of forcing fluoride on humans through the fluoridation of drinking water is wrought with lies, greed and deception. Governments that add fluoride to drinking water supplies insist that it is safe, beneficial and necessary, however, scientific evidence shows that fluoride is not safe to ingest and areas that fluoridate their drinking water supplies have higher rates of cavities, cancer, dental fluorosis, osteoporosis and other health problems. Because of the push from the aluminum industry, pharmaceutical companies and weapons manufacturers,… Read more »
