Having been in the fight against water fluoridation for 4 years now, I find it mind-boggling that almost everyone sees a poison warning on their tube of fluoridated toothpaste which states “Poison – Do Not Swallow” however most people are still okay with a similar substance being pumped directly into their water supply which they then swallow on a daily basis.
I say “similar substance” because the “fluoride” that is in toothpaste is different than the “fluoride” that is in our tap water. The fluoride in toothpaste is a substance called “sodium fluoride”. This is a filtered, pharmaceutical grade fluoride that has had excess contaminants removed however it still requires a poison label… because sodium fluoride is poison. There is poison in your toothpaste. There is poison in your tap water.

95 percent of the world has rejected or is in the process of removing fluoride from their drinking water. The latest large-scale halt of artificial chemical water fluoridation came from Israel on August 26, 2014. There Health Minister Yael German followed through with her announcement to end water fluoridation after 30 years of the practice.
While most of the world has opened its eyes to the dangers of artificial water fluoridation, Canada and the United States are still heavily fluoridating their citizens “to reduce tooth decay.” 2012 statistics show that 40% percent of Canada’s population and a whopping 67.1% of the United States population and are still receiving fluoridated water, despite the known dangers of doing so such as a recent report that the CDC has known since 2005 that the black community in America has much higher rates of damaging dental fluorosis.
While 95% of the … Read More »
Over the past few months, concerned citizens (including myself and Danny) have been contacting Toronto City Councillors regarding their stances on water fluoridation. While some were quite forthcoming with their thoughts, sadly, exactly half were completely silent on the issue. The city councillors who did not respond were contacted at least 2-3 times via e-mail and/or telephone, but still would not disclose a stance. Some also said they would respond, but never did, and others refused to respond unless I provided them with my telephone number and home address.
Of those forthcoming, several were concerned about the health risks associated with drinking artificially fluoridated water. For example, Jaye Robinson stated, “I’m concerned about the issue and, personally, I use a water filter at home”. Ron Moeser also stated, “I have been keeping up-to-date on this issue and have concerns with … Read More »
Our grocery stores are riddled with rows of toothpastes containing sodium fluoride and bottled beverages containing hydrofluorosilicic or hexafluorosilicic acid (the same type of fluoride found in certain cleaning products and our tap water). Many agricultural food products are highly contaminated with “fluoride” residue from conventional insecticides and pesticides. Fluoride’s use as an insecticide extends beyond the farm into the home and is often found in roach and other insect killers. But where does this chemical, that we ingest every single day and that we are told is good for our teeth, really come from?
In Toronto, the contract to purchase over $3,000,000 worth of “fluoride” in 2012 went to a chemical company called Min-Chem Canada Inc.. They sell the chemical Hydrofluosilicic Acid to the City of Toronto and that is the chemical that we know as fluoride.
Toronto Water then adds this chemical to our water supply, after the water has already finished … Read More »
Ashley and I would like to thank everyone who joined us at Saturday’s peaceful assembly at Toronto City Hall. Despite 18 hours of straight rain starting Friday night, the weather could not dampen our spirits.
Having so many people come out and stand in the pouring rain is a testament to how passionate so many of us are about getting hydrofluorosilicic acid out of our water supply. Commonly referred to as fluoride, this acid is highly toxic and has been shown by the National Sanitation Foundation to be contaminated with arsenic, mercury and radionuclides.
We started this campaign just a few months ago and have already made a significant impact. We are close to having almost 2,000 signatures on the petition to end fluoridation in Toronto. We are not alone. The public is quickly waking up to the reality of forced water … Read More »
Don’t let the fear-mongers scare you. As reported in the Calgary Herald newspaper article Calgary dentists report more cavities in kids after fluoride removed from water, the author Clara Ho makes it seem like after only two years of children not being exposed to the toxic chemical hydrofluorosilicic acid (fluoride), their teeth are starting to fall out.
But let’s look a little closer shall we?
By “Calgary Dentists”, Clara Ho actually means two Calgary Dentists. They are reporting that children are coming to their office “with bigger cavities than seen before” and ““Now we’re seeing again the horror stories in a younger population of children since they’ve taken the fluoride out,” Smith said, citing higher levels of decay in young children and even babies as young as 11 months.”
Higher tooth decay in babies as young as 11 months? A child’s first teeth … Read More »
