If you live in, work in or visit any municipality that practices fluoridation, as we do in Ottawa, you are drinking fluoridated water with every glass of water and getting it with every gulp of any beverage and every bite of food prepared with tap water that you swallow.
With fluoridation, you are being drugged without any medical follow up for side effects from exposure to the most chemically reactive element on the planet believed without proof to being used to prevent or reduce tooth decay when it is now proven that it does not work.
It’s the dumping of an industry’s highly hazardous toxic waste passed off as tooth medicine that does not work and endangers everybody’s health to some lesser or greater extent depending upon their individual makeup. Fluoride is not, has never been and will never be tooth medicine.
Don’t look to the medical experts for proof. All they do is quote endorsements and they hand out propaganda without proof that it works. They are completely unable to even adequately answer any health concerns about water fluoridation. We deserve better than that.
A certain Orillian Councillor, Linda Murray, has said that “there has been no evidence to suggest that adding Fluoride to drinking water causes health problems” and she’s right! It’s the actual swallowing said fluoridated water that causes health problems… Out of the mouths of the ignorant does spout some truth, twisted as it is.
The “systemic effect” (which was the key rationale behind putting fluoride in the water), has now been shown to provide little benefit to teeth. According to an article published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, the fluoride that is swallowed and incorporated into teeth is “insufficient to have a measurable effect” on reducing cavities.

The origins of fluoridation stem from industry that has been able to avoid impressive lawsuits and turn a loss into a profit by selling their industrial toxic waste called hydrofluorosilicic acid as a product for water fluoridation without regard for any possible health effects that the Fluoride may cause.
And, how costly can it get? It has been conservatively estimated by a renowned Canadian dentist that dental fluorosis can cost as much as $20,000 per patient, while one U.K. estimate has said it can cost upward of £35,000 in a patient’s lifetime. So, who’s getting rich at whose expense?
