Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has become a prominent cause for concern within developed nations. Many blame video games or even ‘on-the-go’ cultures for producing ADHD in children. However, a new study released by the Department of Psychology at Toronto’s York University indicates that ADHD could in fact be linked to water fluoridation.
Studying data from children ranging from the ages of four to seventeen along with the CDC’s own data regarding state water fluoridation levels, the researchers discovered a marked link between children suffering from ADHD and concentrated public water fluoridation. The team concluded that “this study has empirically demonstrated an association between more widespread exposure to fluoridated water and increased ADHD prevalence in the United States.”
Previous studies have shown a number of chemicals, including fluoride, are linked with brain disorders in children. As well, rats exposed to fluoride have been … 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 »
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 »
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 »
