End Fluoride Toronto was established one and a half years ago and this week we have reached a very significant milestone together. A few days ago our change.org petition asking Toronto City Council to end artificial water fluoridation reached 5,000 signatures. This is amazing news. Even better, we are gaining more support everyday. The word is out and people are waking up to the reality of artificial water fluoridation here and across the world.
Europeans exercise a very important practice called the “Precautionary Principle” which states that “in the absence of scientific consensus that an action is not harmful, the burden of proof that the action is not harmful falls on those taking the action.” With the published Harvard study “Developmental Fluoride Neurotoxicity: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis” showing a potential adverse effect of fluoride on our children’s developing brains, why would our … Read More »
We are only 3 days away from this year’s Peaceful Assembly to End Artificial Water Fluoridation in Toronto! We have been very fortunate this past couple of weeks to receive an abundance of great news:
We have just reached over 4,000 signatures on the online change.org petition to end artificial water fluoridation in Toronto
The Toronto weather forecast is showing nothing but sunshine this Friday
Some amazing new flyers are available for download to help spread the word about artificial water fluoridation and to help reach the goal of 10,000 online signatures to be provided to all 44 Toronto City Councillors (If you would like to know what your local Councillor thinks about artificially fluoridated water, see our previous blog post).
We have two flyers available for download:

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 »
Nearly 600 people have signed the petition to end water fluoridation in Toronto after just two weeks since the campaign was launched! We are well on our way to stopping this unethical practice!
Other Ontario cities have recently stopped fluoridating their water. In 2010 Waterloo stopped adding hydrofluorosilicic acid to their community water supply after 50.3% of referendum voters said no to fluoridation. Waterloo had been fluoridating their water for 44 years. In January of 2013, Windsor city council decided to do the same after a vote of 8-3 in favour of stopping fluoridation. Windsor had been fluoridating their water for over 50 years.
On September 21st hundreds of Torontonians plan to peacefully assemble to let it be known that they do not want toxic hydrofluorosilicic acid added to Toronto’s water supply. Let’s hope that Toronto will follow behind these other Ontario cities and end their 50 year long practice of water fluoridation.
There are many reasons why medication of any kind should not and cannot be distributed through a water supply. Here are the top 4 reasons:
1) Everyone Receives a Different Dosage
By government mandate, Toronto Water adds a very precise dose of the medication hydrofluorosilicic acid (fluoride) to the water at around 0.6 ppm. However, depending on how much water you drink, this provides for a very large range of dosages especially over the span of a lifetime.
If I drink 4 litres of water per day and you drink 1 litre of water per day, that means that I am effectively consuming 4 times the amount of fluoride as you are each day. This is especially problematic for those who drink a large amount of water including firemen, diabetics, and athletes. Coupled with all of the other fluoride we ingest through sources such as beverages, foods, and … Read More »
