Fluoridation Is Meant To Treat Tooth Decay

Promoters of fluoridation clearly claim that fluoride chemicals are put in the water to treat tooth decay, a disease, therefore it’s a drug: anyone denying that fact is just plain ignoring the reality of the definition of a drug.

By putting a fluoride chemical in the water supply that everyone has to drink and can’t avoid other than at great cost, it becomes mass medication, 100% of the population are targeted with the drug. However, only children are the expected beneficiary of this medication, less than 17% of the population. That’s wrong. Arguments that even non children’s teeth also benefit are the worst misrepresentations ever made akin to out and out lies

Ask a pharmacist, if there is any drug:
a) where you don’t control the dose?
b) that can be given to everybody?
c) not requiring individual supervision?
d) that does not have FDA approval?
e) not requiring monitoring for side effects?
There are no published government data on acute and chronic side effects of fluoride because they refuse to do them. If you don’t look, you don’t find. The absence of research is not evidence of absence of harm.

Toothlessness from tooth decay is highest in the states that are the most fluoridated; just look here: http://www.statemaster.com/graph/hea_ora_hea_los_of_nat_tee-health-oral-loss-natural-teeth.

The sky is not going to fall when fluoridation stops, but tooth decay and dental fluorosis will as well as a large number of other illnesses like Alzheimer’s, arthritis, Fibromyalgia, cancer, and the list goes on and on.

Hasn’t anybody else noticed that as we’ve polluted our water and the rest of our environment, illnesses of all kinds have been on the increase over the past 6 decades? Well, in case you haven’t been paying attention, fluoride rates right up there as a major human and environmental toxin with Arsenic, Lead, Mercury and Uranium238 found in the very chemical stew that this fluoride chemical comes in.

Councillors and the whole medical bureaucracy need to take their heads out of the sand and look around at the overwhelming evidence against fluoridation. It’s time to stop this nonsense, time to to stop believing senseless, ignorant, overpaid bureaucrats who refuse to look at recent research on the subject telling us myths and fables about what’s good for us.

Fluoridation Initiated in Fraud and Deceit

The original purpose of fluoridation, based on my extensive research:

Fluoridation was initially invented for two major reasons hidden behind national security and prevention of tooth decay:
1. to hide the fact that workers in industries being poisoned and dying from exposure to this industrial toxic waste, thereby lowering the likelihood of lawsuits that were chipping away at corporate profits;
2. to turn the expensive disposal cost of this industrial toxic waste into a profit.

Please read investigative reporter Christopher Bryson’s brilliant expose of fluoridation’s origins in his book “The Fluoride Deception” in which he poured 10 years of research to produce.

Before water fluoridation was actually started, a group of greedy industrialists were concerned about disposal of their industrial toxic waste fluoride:
1. in an economical or profitable way, and,
2. to prevent any further lawsuits from chipping away at corporate profits.

The initial toxic chemical of concern was sodium fluoride, the waste from metals (steel & Aluminium) production and Uranium nuclear enrichment industry, which was poisoning all life within, and downwind from, the production plants.

This led to the second reason behind the push for fluoridation. They needed a way to cover up the disposal of their toxic waste.

They found it in the pretense of making it appear to be good in the prevention of tooth decay.

Somehow, they managed to turn waste disposal into a profit and disenfranchise lawsuits against damage from that same toxic waste.

Their answer was tap water (municipal water supply) fluoridation to prevent tooth decay, falsely demonstrated by fraudulent science.

Once we were all well baited on sodium fluoride (NaF), and it became more and more expensive and more difficult to obtain, there was a switch to more toxic, cheaper, fluoride chemicals, fluorosilicates: hexafluorosilicic (hydrofluorosilicic) acid (H2SiF6) or its salt sodium hexafluorosilicate (Na2SiF6). This is called a bait and switch tactic.

We can see how well it has become akin to a religious belief when you listen to the passion with which its promoters speak about it without providing any facts or science, how they even create fictitious and elaborate rationalizations for their belief in water fluoridation being good not just for teeth but also for health in general and for all ages…

The sheer stupidity of it all has become almost laughable if it wasn’t so serious.

Fluoridation Fraud and Deceit Unveiled

I was recently inspired to write the following after much research, soul searching  and meditation.

The real purpose of the fluoridation of our drinking water has always been and remains until today:

Industrialists concerned about

      1.   disposal of their industrial toxic waste fluoride in an economical or profitable way, and,
2.   to prevent any further lawsuits from chipping away at corporate profits.

The initial toxin of concern was sodium fluoride, it was the waste from the metals (aluminium and steel) and uranium nuclear enrichment industry. This led to the deceitful reason behind the push for fluoridation. They needed a reason to cover up the disposal of their toxic waste and they found it in the pretense of making it appear to be good in the prevention of tooth decay.

Somehow, they managed to turn waste disposal into a profit and disenfranchise lawsuits against damage from that same industrial toxic waste. Their answer was tap water fluoridation.

Then they did a bait and switch from sodium fluoride to H2SiF6, hydrofluorosilicic acid, known also by many other names, synonyms…

Truly a most disgusting result of greed and deceit leading to fraud and illegality couched in the nicest language ever devised to cover the fraud and deceit…

Fluoridation Deception Part 2

The One Thing You Can’t Live Without

When was the last time you stopped to think about the one thing you can’t live without?

I don’t mean the Internet or sex! I’m talking about water.

Without clean drinking water, life could not go on. This is why it’s so important that we know what is in our water. For the past sixty-five years, city governments nationwide have been adding a controversial substance called fluoride to municipal water supplies.

You probably recognize the word fluoride from the back of your toothpaste tube or from your visits to the dentist. But the fluoride added to our water is not the same as that in our toothpaste. The chemical added to our water is a fluorine compound called hexafluorosilicic acid that is generated as a by-product from the phosphate fertilizer industry.

Phosphates are minerals that are used to make fertilizer, and phosphate mining industry is a giant moneymaker. Fluorides result from the production of fertilizers as well as in the manufacturing of steel, aluminum, glass, cement and Uranium enrichment for the nuclear industry. Previously, the lack of government regulation allowed gaseous fluorides to go up factory smokestacks and straight into the air. Anything and anyone living downwind would get poisoned by these fumes. Cattle and vegetation would wither and die from these gases. That’s why environmental regulations now require giant filtration systems called “wet scrubbers” inside the smokestacks to keep these toxic chemicals from escaping into the air. Fluorosilicic acid is condensed to a water-based solution along with all the other contaminants that result from the mining operations and is put into large cooling pools. They then ship this industrial toxic waste in special hazard tanker trucks, unrefined, having sold it to municipalities for water fluoridation.

By selling their fluoride waste as a product for this purpose, companies avoid  the huge cost of disposing of these chemicals in the environment safely in accordance with regulations. Back in the 1930’s, a band of industrial corporations, including Monsanto, U.S. Steel, Union Carbide, Reynolds, and the Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA) and ALCAN, the leading producers of aluminium, had been cheaply disposing of their fluoride waste, mostly sodium fluoride, into the environment for years. This changed when their toxic waste became the target of negative press and embarrassing and expensive lawsuits written up in the local and national news. A 1933 toxicology report by the USDA had warned of fluoride’s toxicity, singling out the aluminum industry as the biggest culprit.

The new potential of legal liability due to the exposure of workers and communities to industrial fluoride scared these corporations. Knowing that disposing of industrial fluoride waste safely was expensive, ALCOA employed biochemist Gerald Cox in 1936, to argue for fluoride’s dental benefits through experimentation on rats. The nuclear industry had their equivalent in Harold Hodge, a pharmacologist and toxicologist. Cox, neither a doctor nor a dentist, concluded that fluoride strengthened and protected teeth against decay and began to tour the country promoting water fluoridation on behalf of his employers. Interestingly, Cox’s findings ran contrary to the position originally held by the American Dental Association (ADA) on water fluoridation.

In 1944, the Journal of the American Dental Association published the following statement:

“We do know that the use of drinking water containing as little as 1.2 to 3.0 parts per million of fluoride will cause such developmental disturbances as osteosclerosis, spondylosis, and osteopetrosis, and we cannot afford to run the risk of producing such serious systemic disturbances…”

In spite of this warning by the ADA, Grand Rapids, Michigan became the first community to fluoridate its drinking water the very next year.

In 1947 Oscar R. Ewing, a paid attorney for ALCOA, was picked to head the Federal Security Agency.  In this position he oversaw the Public Health Service or PHS (which is now the Department of Health and Human Services). This enabled him to change the Code of Federal Regulations, and place all control of drinking water fluoridation in the hands of his own department. Making clear his lingering ties to the aluminum industry and their expensive toxic waste, Ewing made fluoridation promotion one of the first official policies of the PHS. Over the next three years, 87 additional American cities began fluoridating their water.

The study that is often referred to in fluoride’s defense was conducted by the National Institute of Dental Research (NIDR) of the United States Public Health Service (USPHS). It sought to determine whether there was a relationship between fluoridation and tooth decay. Released in 1988, the multi-million dollar nationwide survey examined 39,000 U.S. school children aged 5-17 from 84 different fluoridated and non-fluoridated geographical areas.

Surprisingly, the study uncovered a declining trend in tooth decay rates in both fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas, mostly due to overall better hygiene. The overriding conclusion from the extensive study was that there is no relationship between tooth decay and fluoride ingestion. Despite this consensus, this study is still commonly cited to link lowered decay rates in fluoridated areas. A seldom-reported fact is that the same trend was found in non-fluoridated areas too.

Fluoride overexposure can bring serious health risks. The most common affliction due to over-consumption is called fluorosis, a condition characterized by a discoloration of teeth or changes in bone density. An excess of fluoride eats away at the enamel of your teeth, causing craters and surface discoloration. Dental fluorosis is the first clear and obvious sign that your body is being poisoned by too much fluoride, and cases can range from mild to severe. This occurs because only 50% of all fluoride taken in by the body is excreted. The remaining fluoride is disseminated throughout the body, accumulating in our bones, pineal gland and other tissues. In Karnataka, India, an excess of fluoride has turned the ground water into a slow poison, crippling at least 10,000 people.

The Director of the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, Dr D. Nagaraj, says that “due to fluoride concentration in water, many people in districts [in Karnataka, India] like Dharwad and Tumkur have spinal cord diseases. These are progressive diseases, after decades of consumption. People are battling with permanent disabilities.”

Alarmingly, a 1991 study by the U.S. Public Health Service found that the rates of osteosarcoma, a deadly type of bone cancer, were significantly higher in fluoridated communities than in non-fluoridated communities. The Harvard School of Dental Medicine found the same link in study done ten years later. Additional studies have associated fluoride ingestion with other serious health problems, including chromosomal damage, morphological changes to their kidneys and brain, hypo activity (or inactivity), damage to the thyroid gland, skeletal fluorosis, osteoporosis, liver cancer, and fertility problems.

The most distressing findings come from over 20 human studies done in China, India, Iran and Mexico that show a substantial lowering of IQ in fluoridated areas. The ingestion of fluoride has been shown to increase the gastrointestinal absorption of aluminum by over 600%, and the absorption of heavy metals like aluminum is known to have a direct correlation to Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological brain disorders such as dementia, Parkinson’s, ADD and ADHD. Although a direct correlation between Alzheimer’s disease and fluoride ingestion is still tentatively and relatively inconclusive, it is interesting to note that the rate of Alzheimer’s is twice as high in America than in Europe, where many countries have banned fluoridation. Also interesting to note is that the rate of increase of neurological disorders have increased with the increase in the prevalence of fluoridation in North America.

Many countries around the world are skeptical of the benefits of adding fluoride to drinking water. Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Japan and China have all recognized that water fluoridation is not a safe and fair practice.

In the U.S., if you want to find out whether you’re drinking fluoridated water, the first thing you can do is access your city’s fluoridation status on the Center for Disease Control’s website in its oral health section. Most cities in Canada that have web sites have some propaganda message about the claimed benefits of fluoridation.

If your water is fluoridated, it’s not a lost cause.  You can speak out in your community or at city council meetings to let your local representatives know your concerns.  To remove fluoride from your water you have a couple of options. You can equip your home with water filtration systems like those at Equinox or Burkey. Filters like Pur and Brita do not remove fluoride.  If you buy bottled drinking water, removes almost all fluoride: only distillation takes it all out.

If your city is planning to fluoridate you can stop it! Activists all over North America have successfully fought off fluoridation since 1987 and they’re at it again. There is still a chance to put a halt to the fluoridation process in your own city.

Whether or not you support water fluoridation, the real issue here is having a choice. No chemical, no matter what its supposed benefits are, should be forced upon the public without their consent.  Having access to clean water should be a fundamental right for every human being.

“Water is the lifeblood of our bodies, our economy, our nation and our well-being.” -Stephen Johnson. To continue with fluoridation of the water supply is criminally irresponsible and a reckless disregard for its effects on human health and the environment. Mass medication is not an option in non emergency situations.

After numerous attempts to get data from city officials proving the benefits of mass fluoridation, I kept getting referred back to either the respective city’s Medical Officer of Health or indirectly asked to look elsewhere. All fluoridation cessation advocates and activists have yet to find any legitimate website or group presence that irrefutably proves any benefits for fluoridation. Neither is there any information anywhere that irrefutably proves that there are no adverse health effects from water fluoridation. Lack of research is not proof of lack of harm. If you don’t look, you don’t find. And no government agencies in fluoridating countries are funding research in the possibility of adverse health effects from fluoridation.

As much as we would like to believe that our highly paid medical bureaucrats with all those letters after their names know what they’re doing and talking about in medicine, that’s not the case when it comes to that contaminated acid pollutant banned by the EPA used for water fluoridation. They all claim and repeat that: “it’s safe and effective.” Unfortunately, that’s a false claim based on lack of knowledge and misinformation in the case of water fluoridation chemicals that they disparagingly call fluoride.

With this most pertinent information, can anyone NOT see that fluoridation of the water supply is a blatant, illogical absurdity that has to stop? Please do something to stop the insanity of fluoridation. Please contact me today to find out how. Please write to your city Councillor and ask that something be done to stop fluoridation.

Fluoridation Safety from Belief or from Science

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…

Water Fluoridation Safety

Safety of water fluoridation by Declan Waugh – 2012.07.23

In the debate on the safety of water fluoridation readers may be interested to know the findings of a recent review of research published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (Volume 10 Number 2, 2005).

The review concluded with the following; “artificial fluoridation of drinking water by municipalities at 1 ppm of fluoride ion probably does not reduce tooth decay, except for a minor effect on deciduous teeth. Hexafluorosilicic acid (used in Ireland) and it’s sodium salts, which contain other toxic substances because they are not purified, certainly have no significant benefit.

Proponents of water fluoridation have censored most media, ignored intelligent discussion of fluoridation, slandered most opponents of fluoridation, and overturned legal judgements against fluoridation in a manner that demonstrates their political power. Many published studies that had conclusions favouring fluoridation were later found unsupported by their raw data.

There is evidence that fluoridation increases the incidence of cancer, hip fractures, joint problems, and that by causing fluorosis it damages both teeth and bones. Other medical problems may also occur, including neurological damage.” The review ends with this statement. “fluoridation of municipal water should cease.”

Ireland remains the only country in Europe that supports the mandatory fluoridation of public water supplies, the health statistics for Ireland would support the statements made in this published peer reviewed study in a reputable medical journal.

To continue to support water fluoridation in light of recent scientific evidence is noting short of criminal negligence.

The Great Fluoridation Cover-up

Impure, untested and non-required fluoride chemicals (http://www.fluoridealert.org/nsf-letter.pdf) are legislated into ma U.S. water supplies, and forcefully recommended to all Canadian water utilities. It is not used to kill nasty microbes, but to medicate your water supply with the assurance that water fluoridation is a safe and effective way to prevent tooth decay, but it is neither safe nor effective: (http://www.slweb.org/bibliography.html).

Water fluoridation is an old-fashioned concept that is as useless and pointless as it is harmful to the health and well being of consumers. It is dentistry’s continued goal for every Canadian’s faucet to dispense 0.7 milligram of fluoride per litre of water. In Canada, approximately 42% of Canadians receive fluoridated tap water. Virtually 100% eat and drink a fluoridated food supply.

Shockingly, fluoridation is not supported by valid science: (http://www.york.ac.uk/inst/crd/fluoridnew.htm). When asked to produce the science behind the claims made for fluoridation, no one is able to provide any whatever.

Dentists mistakenly believed that swallowed fluoride created decay resistant teeth by becoming part of children’s developing enamel; but they were wrong. Fluoride’s beneficial effects, if any, are now thought to be topical (http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/rr5014a1.htm) according to the CDC and the Dental Associations.

Public health officials predicted fluoride would eradicate tooth decay like vaccines have prevented disease; but they were wrong about that, too. They said fluoride was a necessary nutrient and, like vitamin C prevents scurvy, fluoride would prevent tooth decay – wrong again (http://www.bruha.com/pfpc/html/essential_.html). There is no known disease that occurs in the absence of Fluoride (the ionic form of the element Fluorine) in human biochemistry.

There is now irrefutable fact that the most fluoridated sates in the U.S., Kentucky, Georgia, South Carolina, Maine, and others, have the highest rates of tooth decay, while the least fluoridated state, Hawaii, has the lowest of them all.

The U.S. Surgeon General and many Canadian health authorities report tooth decay is at epidemic proportions among our poor and minority populations, many of whom live in fluoridated communities (http://www.orgsites.com/ny/nyscof2/_pgg6.php3). While, tooth decay is increasing in U.S. (and Canadian) children (http://www.cdhp.org/downloads/mmwrfinal90805.pdf), the United Kingdom reports an 11% cavity decline in a recent survey and a 15% decline in a previous survey. The UK is only 10% fluoridated and provides low-fluoride children’s toothpaste. Only high-dose fluoride toothpaste is available in the U.S. – twice the dosage of the UK’s children’s fluoridated toothpastes.

Non-water-fluoridated Finland, Sweden and Holland cut tooth decay rates by 92%, 82% and 72% respectively over the past 20 years without water fluoridation. Meanwhile in the much fluoridated U.S., public health dentists only managed to cut rates by 50% over the same period (since 1984).

Fluoride supplements (http://www.drjaygordon.com/development/pediatricks/fluoridesupp.asp) are often prescribed to children from communities that won’t or can’t fluoridate their water supply. With outdated and scientifically invalid scientific support, dentists say swallowing 0.7 milligram of fluoride daily reduces tooth decay without fluoride’s adverse effects such as dental fluorosis, but they are even wrong about that. Dental fluorosis is beyond epidemic proportions in Canada and the U.S.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Health Canada have never approved fluoride ingestion (http://fluoridedangers.blogspot.com/2005/12/fluoride-never-fda-approved-for.html). They were “grandfathered” in before the FDA drug testing laws were enacted.

New research shows that children who consume fluoride tablets are more at risk for dental fluorosis. That’s why routine fluoride supplementation is no longer recommended by the Canadian Dental Association, the Western Australian Health Authority’s Dental Section and the German Scientific Dental Association. Because of health concerns, Belgium banned the sale of fluoride supplements to prevent tooth decay and many European countries actually ban imports of foods and beverages processed with fluoridated water.

Dental Fluorosis (http://www.fluoridealert.org/dental-fluorosis.htm) is the only outward sign of fluoride’s toxicity (http://icmr.nic.in/000519/updatevol1no2.pdf) to the rest of the body.

Astonishingly, research now shows swallowing fluoride is virtually useless (http://groups.google.com/group/Fluoridation-News-Releases/browse_thread/thread/94d3b101079755c4/825e8275b04679d7?q=ingested+fluoride&rnum=1#825e8275b04679d7) and has unnecessarily exposed millions of North Americans to fluoride’s adverse side effects such as bone disease, dental fluorosis (white spotted, yellow or brown stained [black stained] and sometimes pitted and crumbly teeth) which has, not so surprisingly, increased dramatically (http://groups.google.com/group/Fluoridation-News-Releases/browse_thread/thread/b1ff88cdd4d4fee2/d1bb9aaca9655ef9#d1bb9aaca9655ef9) in North American children.

The Academy of General Dentistry and many researchers now recommend non-fluoridated water be used to prepare infant formula and foods (http://fluoridedangers.blogspot.com/2005/12/infant-foods-and-fluoride.html) to avoid dental fluorosis.

Lack of fluoride does not cause tooth decay. Poor nutrition does. Fluoride cannot fix poor nutrition. But fluoride can and does ruin children’s teeth (http://www.nofluoride.com/wsj_article.htm). No Canadian or American is or ever was fluoride-deficient.

Many studies show that cavity levels decline after water fluoridation stops (http://www.holisticmed.com/fluoride/nyscof030905.html). Ironically, African Americans have the most tooth decay (http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1077/is_n8_v51/ai_18348292) and the most dental fluorosis (http://books.nap.edu/books/030904975X/html/44.html).

There’s actually evidence that fluoride causes tooth decay (http://www.fluoridealert.org/health/teeth/fluorosis/caries.html) at levels slightly above the arbitrarily set “optimal” level set as recommended by Dental Health authorities.

In fact, dental fluorosis has gotten so bad that some dental experts, such as Dr. Hardy Limeback (http://www.actionpa.org/fluoride/torontostar.html), say that it costs more to repair teeth damaged by fluoride than would have been saved if water fluoridation actually did reduce tooth decay. He estimates that it can costs as much as $20,000 to repair dental fluorosis before adulthood. In the U.K. it has been estimated that it can cost upward of ₤38,000 for a lifetime.

In 2004, one dentist charged $18,000 to cover a 16-year-olds white-laced fluoride-damaged teeth with veneers and caps.

HOW WE GOT INTO THIS MESS

At the turn of the last century, many residents of the Southwest U.S. had unusually ugly teeth. They called it “Colorado Brown Stain” or “Texas Teeth” because of the locations in which the effect was predominant. Dental researchers sought to discover the source of this disfiguring tooth malformation. The culprit was high levels of fluoride in the water. We’ve been told for years that these ugly teeth resisted decay but a recently discovered book (April 2004) via the internet gives conflicting details.

Only 28.5% of 12- to 14-year-olds were cavity-free in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with 2.6 ppm naturally fluoridated water, 75% had fluorosis, according to a 1948 study (“Fluorine in Drinking Water Its Effect on Dental Caries,” by Francis A. Arnold). The natural fluoride compound culprit in this dental fluorosis problem is the naturally occurring Calcium Fluoride, not what is currently used as the chemical of choice for water fluoridation, Hydrofluorosilicic acid, chemical formula H2SiF6, that goes by many other names as well.

Also, Hereford, Texas, was touted as the “town without a toothache” because high levels of natural water fluoride discoloured the townsfolk’s teeth but, we were told, they didn’t have any or few cavities. However, 12 to 14-year-olds living there, where the water was naturally fluoridated at 3.1 ppm, 100% had dental fluorosis; but only 38% were caries free, that means that 62% had dental caries. These statistics are not impressive. But maybe they were better than other cities without fluoride, or calcium, or dentists and/or sound nutrition.

But that didn’t stop well-meaning but misguided dentists (who probably didn’t, and still don’t, read the actual studies) to assume the fluoride also caused the discoloured teeth allegedly to resist decay. What they overlooked is significant. The water supply was also very high in calcium and magnesium, essential nutrients we now know helps make teeth strong.

Also the population studied in Colorado Springs was healthy and wealthy, which drew dentists from the East striving to make their own fortune. At the same time, poor residents of Appalachia in the East were losing teeth to decay without any dentist around willing to treat them which is still the case today. It is a well known fact that most U.S. dentists see mostly well-to-do residents and will therefore see few cavities in their patients due to better socio-economic conditions.

In another highly unbelievable move, the dentists convinced public health people to experiment with this new fluoride “discovery.” They hypothesized that, if natural fluoride (Calcium fluoride) in drinking water apparently makes teeth resist decay, the natural fluoride, and makes the general health of people appear to be rather healthy, with great teeth, and see if adding artificial, man made, fluoride to a town’s water also makes a difference.

So they used all the people in a few cities like Grand Rapids, Michigan, Newburgh, New York, Evanston, Illinois and Brantford, Ontario, as their guinea pigs. In Newburgh, they added sodium fluoride into the water supply in 1945 and left Kingston unfluoridated to act as the control while doing the same with the others, assigning control cities to them as well.

Of course, enthusiastic researchers, prodded by rich industrialists, declared fluoridation a success after less than five years, even though the teeth of the children born into the experiment had not even erupted yet. They said fluoride was safe because they examined school children who weren’t sick two weeks before the examination date – virtually eliminating the very children who may have been made ill by the fluoride. Adults were never examined for ill effects.

Ten years later, the State University of New York found that children in fluoridated Newburgh had more cortical bone defects and higher rates of haemoglobin anaemia. Kingston was never fluoridated. Recent studies have shown that tooth decay and dental fluorosis are both higher in fluoridated Newburgh. It has also been observed that the onset of menstruation in young girls has become lower and lower in fluoridated areas over time and that dental fluorosis has dramatically increases in all areas but more so in fluoridated areas.

And what’s even more perverse is that the chemical used to fluoridate your drinking water is an industrial toxic waste silicofluoride that, along with Fluoride, carries Lead, Arsenic, and other contaminants to your faucet, some of them radioactive and others having neurotoxic and carcinogenic effects.

The silicofluorides have never been safety tested in animals or humans. With North American children and the general population as guinea pigs, some researchers have found that silicofluorides increase children’s lead absorption and higher blood lead levels are linked to more tooth decay. The U.S. National Toxicology Program is just beginning to study silicofluorides for human ingestion some 50 plus years after it’s been dumped into most North American’s drinking water. One researcher has also found a relationship between exposure to fluoridated water with violent and criminal behavior (Prof. Roger Masters, PhD, Dartmouth College, U.S.A.)

Other studies link fluoride to bone fractures, lowered IQ, thyroid dysfunction, Alzheimer’s, pineal gland calcification and more. Fluoridation has provided a lucrative sector for researchers to apply for federal grants to study the after effects of the crazy decision to have Fluoride in human water supply and then see what happens. However, this avenue of research has been discouraged by the granting organizations from pressures by the ADA (American Dental Association) and the CDC.

Canadian and U.S. children are overdosed with fluoride whether rich or poor, healthy or malnourished, from the various sources that are contaminated by the Fluoride from your water supply. You would think dentists would heed the advice reported in their own dental journals – to cut back on fluoride use. But instead medico-dental bureaucrats are lobbying legislators all over the North America to fluoridate more water supplies – sometimes even when the people have voted against it. But educated individuals are fighting back. In the past, fluoridation has regularly failed miserably in the polls whenever the polling question has been worded without bias.

Meanwhile, the Dental Associations have reported to the press as far back as June 16, 2000 that they have a new cavity fighting tool – calcium. January 2006, researchers tout Cavistat, a calcium containing nutrient substance that reduces cavities better than fluoride and without Fluoride. Yet, instead of putting themselves out of business as they once predicted, today’s dentists make much more money than physicians (http://www.wsjclassroomedition.com/archive/05apr/care_dentist.htm) while working less days and less hours. Much of their income is generated from the rotting deciduous (baby) teeth of children damaged by ingested Fluoride and repairing dental fluorosis, of which they never inform their patients.

The State Of Artificial Water Fluoridation In Canada

As of July 18, 2012.

A sample of Canadian cities that do not currently have fluoridation, some probably never contested:

  1. – Caledon (ON)
  2. – Cambridge (ON)
  3. – Cochrane (AB)
  4. – Essex County (ON, outside Windsor)
  5. – Guelph (ON)
  6. – Kitchener (ON)
  7. – Leamington (ON), has never had it
  8. – Orillia (ON), has never had it
  9. – Regina (SK), has never had it
  10. – Saguenay (QC)
  11. – Shawinigan (QC)
  12. – St. Catharines (ON), has never had it
  13. – Timmins (ON)
  14. – Vancouver (BC), has never had it
  15. – Victoria (BC), has never had it
  16. – Westbank (BC)

There are currently 87 known Canadian communities as of March 11, 2014, that have discontinued or refused to implement fluoridation since 1990; extracted from Communities which have Rejected Fluoridation Since 1990, at the Fluoride Action Network (FAN, fluoridealert.org); Canadians Opposed to Fluoridation (cof-cof.ca) also maintains such a list: our list updated regularly on our web site, http://ffo-olf.org/end.html, as the struggle rages on.

Why they’ve Quit? Many reasons that can be resumed as follows:
1. Not safe.
2. Not effective.
3. Immoral.
4. Unethical.
5. Contaminates tap water.
6. Causes harm to health.
6. Pollutes the environment.
7. A highly hazardous, industrial toxic waste.
8. Mass medication without medical supervision.
9. Unproved claim of benefit on children’s teeth.
10. No toxicology studies or clinical trials as required for use as a water additive.
11. Uses municipal water supply as a waste disposal method.
12. Legal liability for damage to teeth, health and environment.
13. Taxation issues: waste of tax dollars.
14. Unapproved, untested and unregulated as a drug.
15. No one has ever given their consent to being medicated for tooth decay.
16. Councillors are effectively practicing medicine without a licence.

As of April 1, 2012, only about 3% of Quebec and 3% of B.C. are now fluoridated. Ontario is trending downward at less than 70%.

Kingston, Ontario – decided not to implement fluoridation in 2009 after CFB Kingston indicated to the city to discontinue fluoridation of the base. http://www.thewhig.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=1047167&archive=true. Article saved to HDD.

“Laval ne fluore plus depuis 2000, car cela endommage les installations pour l’assainissement des eaux.” Translation: “The City of Laval does not fluoridate since 2000 because it damages the water treatment facilities.”

A sample of Canadian cities that have rejected fluoridation and never had it before, as of July 18, 2012:

  1. – Dryden (ON), implementatiom last rejected April 14, 2008
  2. – Embrun (ON), after 1990
  3. – Gatineau (QC) May 4, 2010
  4. – Kingsville/Leamington
  5. – Longueuil (QC), after 1990
  6. – Medicine Hat (AB), after 1990
  7. – Montreal (QC), 1965
  8. – Orillia (ON), Jul 16, 2012
  9. – Regina has never fluoridated its water supply
  10. – Sainte-Marie (QC), after 1990
  11. – Thunder Bay (ON), after 1990

The City of Montreal has never been fluoridated thanks to Mayor Jean Drapeau’s intervention in 1964.

Kingsville/Leamington have never been fluoridated because the Heinz Company would not allow the water they use for processing their baby food to be contaminated with Hydrofluorosilicic Acid or Sodium Fluoride. Heinz actually recommends that you do not use tap water for their baby formula. Now isn’t that amazing!

– Prince Edward Island is 23.7% fluoridated.

A plebiscite on fluoridation was held in Charlottetown in 1967. Fluoridation began in that city in 1968 as well as the Canadian Forces Base in Summerside but ended there in 2008 (by order of the military). Currently, P.E.I. is focusing on preventive dental programs for children and adolescents through schools, which include topical fluoride application for the partial prevention of tooth decay. JCDA • July/August 2009, Vol. 75, No. 6.

COMMUNITIES CURRENTLY KNOWN TO CONTAMINATE THEIR TAP WATER WITH A FLUORIDE CHEMICAL

As of January 23, 2012, for names of organizations known to be working to end this contamination, contact the president, FFO, rich.hudon@ffo-olf.org.

There are currently 59 known communities across Canada facing groups advocating elimination of fluoridation as we know of them:

The hydrofluorosilicic acid (H2SiF6 – HFSA, or HFS) solution used for artificial “drinking water” (tap water) fluoridation most often contains, but is not limited to, the following contaminants: fluorine (F), hydrogen fluoride (HF), lead (Pb), arsenic (As), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), chromium (Cr), phosphorus (P), iron (Fe), iodine (I), silver (Ag), plus uranium238 (U238), barium (Ba), radon (Rn), cobalt (Co), radium (Ra), polonium (Po) and other radionuclides.
List: fluorine, hydrogen fluoride, lead, arsenic, mercury, cadmium, chromium, phosphorus, iron, iodine, silver, plus uranium238, barium, radon, cobalt, radium, polonium and possibly others because it is derived from the mining processes used toFor a description of how this HFSA is collected, go to http://ffo-olf.org/ffo-olf.html#w1.

The Fluoridation Deception – Part 1

In the beginning, before water fluoridation was actually started, some industrialists were concerned about disposal of their industrial toxic waste fluoride in an economical or profitable way and to prevent any further lawsuits from chipping away at corporate profits. The initial toxin of concern was sodium fluoride, it was the waste from the metals and uranium nuclear enrichment industry. This led to the second reason behind the push for fluoridation. They needed a reason to cover up the disposal of their toxic waste and they found it in the pretense of making it appear to be good in the prevention of tooth decay. Somehow, they managed to turn waste disposal into a profit and disenfranchise lawsuits against damage from that same toxic waste.  Their answer was tap water fluoridation.

The chemical currently used in most water fluoridation schemes is called hydrofluorosilicic acid (chemical formula H2SiF6) or one of its many synonyms. It’s an industrial toxic waste contaminant banned by the U.S. EPA that also contains other impurities harmful to health that comes from the super phosphate fertilizer industry. We’ll learn more about this at some other time. Let’s first look at how it all started

In the early 1900’s an outspoken dentist in Texas treating “well-to-do” people noticed that most of his patients had few cavities and had discoloured, brown and mottled teeth. When the source of this effect was discovered, fluoride in the water, it was renamed dental fluorosis. The type of fluoride causing that phenomena was a natural one called Calcium fluoride. However, the dentist did not account for the fact that he was not treating the poor and the underprivileged, who suffered severely from tooth decay, because he did not have any of them as patients. These others had poor dental hygiene, poor nutrition and could not afford dental treatment.

Prior to the mid 1900’s people with an overactive thyroid, called hyperthyroidism, were being treated for that condition using fluoride baths because it was recognized as a thyroid function suppressor. Is it possible that somehow it is no longer a thyroid function suppressor?

In 1944, the Journal of the American Dental Association published the following statement: “We do know that the use of drinking water containing as little as 1.2 to 3.0 parts per million of fluoride will cause such developmental disturbances as osteosclerosis, spondylosis, and osteopetrosis, and we cannot afford to run the risk of producing such serious systemic disturbances…”

Money, prestige, perks, power and propaganda changed all that. Thus began the great fluoridation deception.

Having rediscovered the Texas dentist’s conclusions, greedy industrialists, in 1945, decided to prove that fluoride could be good for teeth set up a group of human experiments in four paired cities in North America to prove it. They created what became known as the fluoride trials. Four cities were chosen for fluoridation with matched, non fluoridated ones, one pair was in Canada: Brantford vs Sarnia, Ontario. The others were Grand Rapids vs Muskegon, Michigan, Newburgh vs Kingston, N.Y., and Evanston vs Oak Park, Illinois. This was the first step in the fluoridation deception, as discovered by Christopher Cryson in his book by the title, The Fluoride Deception.

This was a strange phenomenon, given that the USPHS and the American Dental Association (ADA) had been adamantly against the addition of fluoride to drinking water for years.

The people who did the study of the effects of fluoride on teeth were all in the dental profession. Their only concern was about teeth, not any other part of the body, as if teeth might be the only thing in the body that could be affected by ingesting an element as toxic as the Fluorine atom in its ionic state, properly called Fluoride in chemistry. So no toxicologists, endocrinologists, neurologists, haematologists or anyone from any other branch of human biology were called upon to review any other effects on the body from ingestion of Fluoride. One basic thing you need to know here is that the fluorine atom is never found in it’s elemental state in nature because it is extremely highly reactive. It is so reactive that it will even combine with the so-called noble gases like argon with very little convincing while they rarely combine with very few other elements on earth except under extremely forceful conditions.

Getting back to the fluoride trials. Many hundreds of children were examined over a period of time in each city to determine how well fluoride ingestion might serve as tooth medicine. Along the path to their conclusion, the dental specialists were told to take all the results that showed improvements in reducing dental caries in the fluoridated cities and make up time charts and graphs of their findings. Children in the fluoridated cities with poor nutrition and poor dental care were left out of the findings and their betters were all included, while in the non fluoridated cities, everyone was included. Doesn’t that sound a bit fraudulent to you? This was step two in this deception.

This is nothing new. Those who pay for the studies usually get the results that they pay for.

The next step was as easy as leading cattle to the slaughterhouse. The industrialists hired one of the foremost public relations architects of the century, Edward Bernays, who created an advertising campaign to convince many in the medical profession and allied professionals and then the whole population that fluoride added to the water supply was good for children’s teeth, backed by an overblown campaign taunting the results of the skewed fluoride trials. Can you imagine anyone not wanting to have bad teeth refusing to believe a slick and deceptive  advertising campaign selling the benefits of fluoridation for healthy pearly whites? This was step number three in the fluoridation deception.

The fourth and final step was to make sure they could destroy all possible opposition to their fluoridation scheme. Clever and conniving individuals were put into places of power in government agencies associated with medical and dental care whether or not they were qualified medical specialists of any kind. Most were not. As long as they were able to ably articulate the great fluoridation deception and destroy all opposition they had a job waiting for them in any government position that could be used to promote fluoridation.

Opponents to fluoridation were disrespected, defamed, derided and scorned in every way possible to disabuse them from speaking out against fluoridation. Journals and newspapers were threatened with lawsuits and withdrawal of huge advertising revenues if they so much as published anything against fluoridation.

It didn’t matter whether scientists and academics were brilliant and promising, had the science, the facts, the research or history to prove their case, they were made to look inadequate, unreliable and incompetent by the promoters of fluoridation who spared no effort to enforce the new paradigm about fluoridation. Is this a form of conspiracy? You may call it that, but I call it collusion among the greedy for the sake of profits.

The American Dental Association was turned on its head by connivance from the same greedy industrialists and made to accept the campaign and the promotion of fluoridation was on in earnest.

However, proof has now been coming out over the last three decades that ingested Fluoride is actually bad for your teeth. I have lost all of my teeth to Fluoride and fluoridation. My dentist has confirmed beyond a doubt that in my case, my tooth loss to tooth decay and to fluoride chemicals is very real. You see, instead of making teeth better, fluorides make ones teeth harder by making them more crystalline, more brittle. When my dentist went to pull out the two remaining molars that looked reasonably healthy in spite of having crowns on them, their base shattered like crystal under pressure. In addition, all of my teeth were dead except one, but it was dying too. I’m not saying that this will happen to everyone, but that it happens to a significant subset of people is unacceptable, especially when they do not know that this is the cause of their teeth problems.

One more thing. One of the major contributors to my illness of over 15 years, fibromyalgia, was fluoride compounds used in pharmaceuticals and in the water supply. This is due to having reached my body’s maximum toxic tolerable load, aggravated by Fluoride, the worst of these toxins. Here again, I’m not alone in this.

This knowledge is not being accepted by medical bureaucrats all over Canada, the U.S. and all other fluoridating countries. They refuse to even consider the evidence being presented to them. But these anomalies in the fluoridation story are just another part of the fluoridation deception.

Nothing Good About Fluoridation

Fluoridation is:

harmful
unhealthy
irresponsible
unrealistic
wasteful
expensive
dangerous
foolish
fraudulent
illegal
unlawful
contemptuous
unscientific
non-medicinal
unethical
immoral
reckless
useless
outdated
archaic
unsustainable
polluting
contaminating
destructive
intolerant
drugging
indiscriminate
costly
draconian
unjustifiable

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.
Source: Featherstone, J.D.B. (2000). The Science and Practice of Caries Prevention. Journal of the American Dental Association. 131, 887-899.

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?
