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.

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 »
There is a serious problem with adding medication to the water supply: Everyone drinks a different amount of water.
Although the City of Toronto is very good at adding a precise amount of hydrofluorosilicic acid (fluoride) to our drinking water, that water is consumed in vastly different quantities by vastly different people.
When a doctor prescribes their patient a medication, there is a process of evaluation of the patient’s physical and mental condition. This gives the doctor an idea of the proper amount and intake schedule of a particular drug.
If treating obesity for example, one would treat a person who weighs 500 lbs differently than someone who weighs 200 lbs. Why? Because the 500 lb person requires more care when changing their diet and lifestyle than the person who weighs 200 lbs.
This is the reason why it is so important to evaluate people on a patient-by-patient … Read More »
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 »
