Hydrofluorosilicic acid — contains fluorosilicates… plus other trace co-contaminants.
Health Canada and the US Centers for Disease Control concede — swallowing fluoridated water has very little or no effect on reducing dental caries.
Health Canada’s Chief Dental Officer of Health — admits a lifetime of swallowing fluoridated water results in less than one cavity reduction per person — also corroborated by Statistics Canada.
For decades, Health Canada and others — said fluoridation is “natural” like calcium fluoride in groundwater — while remaining silent on the industrial toxic waste actually being used to fluoridate.
Health Canada has finally been forced to admit — it does not conduct toxicology studies on fluorosilicates such as the hydrofluorosilicic acid used in water fluoridation.
Health Canada has also been forced to admit — human health harm toxicology research has never been conducted on hydrofluorosilicic acid.
Health Canada further admits — hydrofluorosilicic is not regulated under Canada ‘s Food & Drug Act — nor is it currently regulated under Canada’s Natural Health Product Regulations.
United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says, — while it promotes fluoridation policy, it does not determine safe levels of “fluoride” in drinking water.
Ontario’s Safe Drinking Water Act subscribes to National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) Standard 60 for fluoridation chemical “certification” yet, remarkably, NSF Standard 60 does nothing to determine whether hydrofluorosilicic acid is safe or effective for human consumption.
Moreover, NSF has stated it shall not incur obligations, liability or damages pertaining to the use, interpretation, or reliance upon Standard 60.
Ontario’s Safe Drinking Water Act exists to ensure drinking water remains safe, and without health hazards. (http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/statutes/english/elaws_statutes_02s32_e.htm)
OSDWA Section 19, coming into effect January 1st, 2013, raises that standard of care, extending it to municipal councils. Council members are to be accountable and personally liable for what they permit into the drinking water system. This may also entrain personal liability to the MOH.
OSDWA Section 20 (1) indicates nothing is allowed into the drinking water system if it could result in a drinking water health hazard.
OSDWA Section 20 (2)(b) is often used to defend water fluoridation as a statutory authority, then pointing to the Ontario Fluoridation Act.
OSDWA Section 20(3) points out dilution is no defence when adding something into the drinking water system, which could (not will, not shall, not does) result in a drinking water health hazard.
Section 166 resolves how conflict between Acts must be handled, whereby the Ontario Safe Drinking Water Act prevails over any other Act, unless the other Act expressly states it prevails.
The Ontario Fluoridation Act does not expressly state it prevails over Ontario’s Safe Drinking Water Act — therefore, Ontario ’s Safe Drinking Water Act prevails and overrides the Fluoridation Act.
Ontario’s Fluoridation Act only pertains to a fluoridation system, equipment, materials and compound for releasing Fluorine ions into drinking water. It remains silent on what chemical compound a municipality should consider.
Ontario’s Fluoridation Act also remains silent on ‘why’ we release Fluorine ions into drinking water systems.
In 1957, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled fluoridating municipal drinking water to be a “compulsory preventive medication of the inhabitants”… and further ruled that current statutory provisions would need to be changed to confer this intention — before Ontario councils could pass by-laws to fluoridate.
Ontario’s Fluoridation Act has forever remained silent on why we release Fluorine ions into drinking water supplies. Decidedly, the intent is “compulsory preventive medication of the inhabitants.”
Ontario’s Safe Drinking Water Act is about treating drinking water, not treating the inhabitants (http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/statutes/english/elaws_statutes_02s32_e.htm).
And… subsequent to this 1957 Supreme Court of Canada ruling, we have never subjected fluoridation chemicals to drug testing, drug trials, or drug approvals.
Presently, municipal councils still hold ultimate authority on whether or not to fluoridate.
In that regard, council is all that protects citizens, and all that protects itself.
While much about municipal water fluoridation and fluoridation chemicals remains unlegislated and unregulated — councils and municipalities remain clearly legislated and tightly regulated.
Water fluoridation was never in Health Canada ‘s hands (evidently for good reason). Water fluoridation was always a social justice issue, and the law is clearly on the peoples’ side. We need to park our differences and work together to address dental caries in a proper, direct and targeted manner. Mass medicating via the water supply is over.
We are sympathetic as to the position this places municipal councils in — and we are prepared to field any questions Councillors might have, and offer any assistance required of us to resolve this conundrum.
