A recent study has discovered a startling link between fluoride intake and hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism or underactive thyroid is a disease which causes the body’s thyroid gland to fail to produce adequate levels of important hormones. This causes a host of undesirable side-effects such as weight gain, depression, fatigue and in the worst cases cretinism which can cause severe mental and physical developmental delays in children. This can also lead to other disorders and diseases if left untreated or undiagnosed.
The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Kent and although it appears their findings were not well received by their peers, they are nevertheless impossible to ignore. The researchers discovered that fluoridation above 0.3 ppm (mg/l) is directly correlated with a 30% higher rate of hypothyroidism in those drinking the fluoridated water. Studying the cases of hundreds of residents across England between … Read More »
On Monday, April 22, 2013, Dr. Paul Connett Ph.D joined us at the North York Civic Centre to discuss the artificial fluoridation of Toronto’s water supply. You can see the full video presentation on YouTube here.
Dr. Connett is a graduate of Cambridge University and holds a Ph.D. in chemistry from Dartmouth College. After teaching for 23 years in Canton NY at St. Lawrence University, he retired from his full professorship in chemistry in May 2006. Dr. Connett was kind enough to grace Toronto with his presence before travelling on April 23rd to testify against the addition of hydrofluorosilicic acid (fluoride) to the water supply in various municipalities in Quebec. Quebec currently has one of the lowest rates of artificially fluoridated water in Canada at around 2.6% with their largest city Montreal, having never fluoridated their water supply.
After another incredibly informative presentation, Dr. Connett reviewed the top 7 reasons … Read More »
