The scientific and legal determination of safety is based on two types of research:
1. Animal studies (toxicology studies)
2. Human studies (randomized, controlled clinical trials are the gold standard)
Would it surprise you to know?
The actual fluoride chemicals used in artificial water fluoridation (silicofluorides H2SiF6 & Na2SiF6) have neither the required animal studies nor the required human studies to demonstrate safety. Until recently, there were NO TOXICOLOGY STUDIES available which examined the long-term use of these chemicals. There are now available two recently published toxicological studies (Sawan et al. 2010, Liete et al. 2011) that demonstrate health harm from the long-term use of these chemicals.
Would it surprise you to know?
The actual fluoride chemical used in artificial water fluoridation (usually hydrofluorosilicic acid) is used as a “medical treatment to prevent disease” according to Health Canada, yet it has never been regulated or approved by Health Canada. All other fluoride chemicals used for dental care are regulated under the regulations of the Food and Drugs Act.
“Health Canada does not regulate hexafluorosilic acid (hydrofluorosilicic acid) or sodium silicofluoride products, the actual products used in water fluoridation, which are allegedly used as a medical treatment to prevent dental disease.” Petition #299, Answer #3, to Auditor General of Canada
NO MEANS NO
NO government approval = NOT SAFE
NO government regulation = NOT SAFE
NO safety studies = NOT SAFE
NO animal studies = NOT SAFE
NO safety studies = NOT LEGAL
NO animal studies = NOT LEGAL
It must be noted that the actual chemicals used in the Sawan et al and Liete et al studies mentioned above only used pure H2SiF6 chemicals used, not the actual industrial toxic waste chemical contaminant that comes to water treatment plants with all of its co-contaminants, including Arsenic, Lead, Mercury, Uranium238 and other chemical and radioactive contaminants. Health Canada call this contaminant a “product” because somehow, finding a buyer willing to purchase this toxic waste somehow transforms it into a “product” in spite of being a pollutant banned by the EPA.
Magic – Contaminant becomes a product & tooth medicine
By selling the toxic stew that contains the hydrofluorosilicic acid to municipalities and water utilities as a water additive it somehow even becomes transformed into tooth medicine, which, like most pharmaceuticals, is riddled with side effects. It is now known that the Fluoride component of this toxic chemical stew is carcinogenic (Dr. Dean Burke & Dr. JohnYiamouyiannis 1976, Yiamouyiannis 1993, Elise Basin 2001, 2006, U.S. NRC 2006) and neurotoxic (Dr. Phyllis Mullenix et al 1995, Calderon 2000, U.S. NRC 2006). What do we know about the Lead, the Mercury and the Arsenic. Same problems as the Fluoride.
Yet they put all of that in your tap water and medical bureaucrats say that they believe that the chemicals are so diluted that they can not possibly cause any harm to your health. Empty assurances, but they are supposed to be the experts. Yet, they are neither toxicologosts, nor pharmacologists, nor neurotoxicologists with expertise in fluoride chemicals used in water fluoridation.
How can they then make such claims with such assurance. I don’t believe them for one moment, not after all of the research I’ve done, and neither should you or anybody else. They go on belief, not evidence, however, we are asked to take their vacuous statements from belief as evidence of lack of harm, as evidence of benefit to teeth!…
I don’t think so…
