Canadians vote against fluoridated water supplies

Sample News Big

Residents in Waterloo, Ontario have voted to stop adding fluoride to water supplies.

The decision, which was announced on Tuesday, has been welcomed by anti-fluoride campaigners; however, the news has shocked dentists and the incoming head of the Ontario Dental Association has condemned the decision. Dr Harry Hoediono has criticised the decision, saying that people are unaware of the dental health benefits of fluoride and are voting to stop fluoridation based on flimsy evidence they have downloaded from the internet. Dr Hoediono said that it was a shame that such an important decision could be made by a small group of people who perhaps do not have the necessary knowledge to make an informed decision.

Campaigners against fluoride believe that adding fluoride to the water supply is tantamount to poisoning and are lobbying for fluoridation to be stopped all over Canada. Opponents of fluoride claim the chemical is illegal, unnecessary and dangerous; campaigners believe fluoride contributes to health conditions, including increased risk of cancer, thyroid disease and arthritis.

Public health officials and dentists in the area are outraged by the decision; numerous studies conducted all over the world have consistently shown that fluoride helps to strengthen and protect the teeth, which reduces rates of decay. Fluoride also helps to cut costs for public health services as people are less likely to need dental treatment.

Most councillors were opposed to stopping fluoridation; however, they voted in favour of stopping it to support public opinion. Regional Chairman, Ken Seiling, said he did not believe much of what protestors had to say; however, he claimed that health officials had failed to run an effective campaign, which meant that people were largely unaware of the benefits of fluoride.

    Why do people like Harry Hoediono always fail to acknowledge that fluoride impacts other biological functions, and that eveyone’s tolerance to fluoride is not the same? Its all about oral health, oral health, oral health. Open your eyes Harry. People care more about their overall state of health than just their oral health. I think Canada may be onto something great here.

    If you want flouride in your water, put it in your own glass of water, leave the rest of us out of it.
    If fluoride were “proven,” there should be evidence of its glory in the U.S. state, Kentucky, which has been 100% fluoridated for over 40 years. Kentucky, however, leads the nation in the number of dental cavities in children, and in the number of completely toothless adults, according to government records. The same ineffectiveness is evident in many states and cities.

    Most of Europe (16 countries) has rejected fluoridation and is 98% fluoride free. and the WHO reports that they have a better tooth decay rate than any fluoridated country.

    There is no scientific evidence to support the idea that drinking fluoridated water has any effect on cavity reduction — NONE! — but there is proof that it causes cancer and other health problems. The best source for scientific information on the health hazards and ineffectiveness of fluoridation can be found here: (www.fluoridealert.org).

    Very good decision. I was diagnosed 3yrs ago with Hashimoto’s disease, a common form of hypothyroidism which I found can be caused by fluoride. I started to avoid fluoridated water and all products containing it and 6 months later my thyroid hormone levels had returned to normal. With high antibody counts, my battle with the disease is ongoing and it requires great discipline to maintain a fluoride free diet in Australia. Last year my health deteriorated again so I also began to avoid all physical contact with fluoridated water. A month later my health improved once again.
    At least now you all have the choice about fluoride unlike our undemocratic government in Australia.

    People have a right to say what medication they have, if someone put drugs in your food on a daily basis because it had benefits to your health you’d go mad! So why should we be forced to have a drug put into our water? If people want to have water with flouride they should get it over the counter like every other medicine or bottles labled with it. If someone wants healthy teeth they should brush more often, not have drugs forced on them. I personally don’t care what the evidence is for or against, it’s flat out forced medication which with any other kind would be considered illegal. Give people the right to decide over their health not beuracrats and dentists that want an easier life!

    Great decision!! Perhaps Dr. Hoediono should know that Dr. Hardy Limeback a leading canadian dental reseacher discovered that floride is a deadly toxin and has no place in any water supply period. He contacted Stephen Harper with his findings urging the Prime Minister to ban floride in our water supplies. Unfortunately floride is big bussiness as it is a byproduct from industrial waste. Have look at the warning label on a tube of toothpaste. Thankfully council voted to have this toxin removed. You did the right thing!!!

    There is plenty of flouride in your toothpaste and mouthwash so, have no fear. The only thing to fear is the poison itself and the ones ramming it down your throat!

    People are “unaware ” of the poisons in the air,water,food,drinks.

    Example
    See, if we divert attention with banning cigarettes saying
    they are terrible killers …but we will not tell the people that there are more poisons than that in, everything else that cause cancer and numerous other killing diseases in that listed above along with the flouride.

    This expert says that,that expert says this,who cares.

    Use your own mind and intuition if you have one left.

    Poison is poison is poison ,no matter who tries to spin it as not to be poison.The people that want the “benefits” of flouride can have the governments give it to them, not us.

    Like mercury in fillings,thats good for you too right….Geez

    Maybe we can eat some lead like other civilizations did and died or move next door to a nuclear reactor,”there is nothing wrong with a bit of radiation don`t worry

    The chemtrails, dont worry
    The Gulf of Mexico BP SYNTHIA EXPERIMENT, DONT WORRY
    Have some more …here its free we want to help you !
    self replicating DNA that eats flesh,dont worry

    Truth IS stranger than fiction believe it.

    Read …..get smart Read what the people leading the country have written ,where they went to school and what clubs or secret societies they belong to.

    Then read up on ancient civilizations and the different religions.

    You will see the dots fall together

    It’s about time they stopped putting that waste product poison in the water system. Stalin used it in the Gulag to dumb the residents down, which is exactly why the World’s governments use it. Buy some rat poison and read the label (sodium fluoride) if its poisonous in large amounts then it stands to reason that small anounts over a long period of time are poisonous. Shame on all the dentists who have not carried out there own research into the origins of fluoride use and shame on Government puppet Harry Hoediono.

    According to the dentists the public do not have the knowleadge to make an informed descision? well its seems the public know much more then them regarding the dangers of flouride, flouride does not strengthen teeth, it is a deadly poison just read on the back of a tube of toothpaste what you should do if you swallow some! seek medical help!!. straight away!! so what is long term exposure doing to peopkle who inadvertently swallow amounts of flouride when brushing their teeth everyday? the build up in their bodys is causing all kinds of health problems. dr hoediono you say flimsy eveidence of the internet flouride is a poison you know it i know it, you are bought and sold dr hodiono you are told what to say/think or you would not be a dentist, you reccomend what your told to reccomend its all about money even if that means poisoning people, the fact you go along with that shows what you say means nothing.

    I have spent copious amounts of time researching into flouridation and it is poisonous to the human system, it is just industrial toxic waste that the big corporations are actually managing to sell and distribute into our water supply. It is all a propaganda campaign, in fact Hitler used it to dumb down the inmates of his concentration camps, as it has the over time the undesired effect of a labotomy

    1. Fluoride stands between lead and arsenic in terms of toxicity.
    2. Fluoride accumulates in the body.
    3. How can you ensure by putting this ‘medication’ in the water supply people won’t overdose anyway?
    It’s a no brainer!

  12. November 19th, 2010 at 08:47 PM
    jonnee ray Says :

    the fact is that these people are informed and there is no medical evidence to suggest that long term flouridation is neccessary. stop belittling fellow citizens and start waking up to the fact that the flouridation has nothing to do with public health. it was first muted by the nazis – flouride is a known carcinogen and had no place in our water supply. at best it should be optional…not mandatory.
    people are waking up to the fact that governments can not be trusted and have ben lying for years about so called health benefits. If its so freeking great how come we survived for centuries without it.

    Of course Dr Hoediono’s point is moot at the outset.
    He claims that the ignorant are making a mistake, but instead of listing reasons and facts all he does is denigrate, essentially saying people (except him) are stupid.

    In the US Fluoride is listed as a toxic poison and only has applications for “Topical Use” as per the Center for Disease Control, the way it is listed also questions it’s usefullness as the CDC does not claim that it actually helps teeth, but lists that “it is believed to fight tooth decay when used topically”

    Recently as in this week or last both the CDC and the ADA (American dental association have admitted that using fluridated water when mixing with infant “Formula” greatly increases the risk of a disease known as fluorosis.

    If Harry Hoediono is so ashamed of the unknowing people then rather than simply contradicting the PEOPLE’s decision why not back up his theory of just how healthy fluoride can be with unquestionable facts, and I am not speaking of the fictitious fabricated facts, but rather authentic truthful ones. If he can prove to the public that fluoride is an actual contributor to the health of the PEOPLE then I think he should change his name to Harry Houdini.

    People have a right to have a water supply that is as clean as possible without added chemicals. We all know that Chlorine is to kill germs and we all agree that there is no alternative. Having said that, with regard to Flourine based compounds, we already get it in our toothpaste and there is no need to add it to water. The rest of the body doesn’t need it! Using the logic pushed by the Dental Association, Vallium is known to calm people down, therefore we need to add it to the water to keep the public peace and give people a good night’s sleep! When I hear statements from Dentists such as this, I am apt to believe the old stereotype that people become Dentists because they failed Medical School!

    Benefits of fluoride? Does this article talk about the junk science that got fluoride passed in the 50′s? Also how about fluoride defined as a rat poison prior to the 50′s? Good for your teeth maybe? but good for you to ingest? I don’t think so! Maybe some new studies would help? How about the FDA warning against not using fluoride for children last week? This article does nothing to explore the dangers of this poison, but instead uses dogma that has since been exposed to lies. Watch the Fluoride deception and you may be enlightened!@@

    Yeah because for 200,000 years nature has been wrong. Thankfully scientists discovered the highly toxic waste product of the Aluminium industry. The wonderfully versatile Flouride, not only does it protect our teeth, it’s also used as a very effective rat poison. It’s even used in the drug industry for anti-depressant medication.

    Flouride is evil poisoning and this has been proven time and again by people that aren’t corrupt politicians and corrupt main stream media. No one should be involuntarily medicated by the government. If you want fluoride add it yourself.

    Finally.
    Read “The Fluoride Deception” by Christopher Bryson to find out what and where fluoride comes from and what it does to our health. These so called “public health officials” are either ignorant of the facts or are actively covering them up.
    We can get fluoride from our toothpaste if we so choose, and there is absolutely no need to bathe,shower, swallow, or water our lawns and plants and gardens with this garbage ever.
    I hope this happens all across Canada soon.

    Bravo to the residents of Waterloo, Ontario. They have made a decision based on fact. The fact is that fluoride is a neuro toxin and should never have been put in the water.

If there are people who think it’s a health risk then this is the solution I wonder how much tooth decay has to do with a mineral deficient diet. Most of our agricultural products are grown in mineral depleted fields.

    Fluoride is the main ingredient in Rat poison and even lists on a tube of toothpaste that it is poison are you serious ?

    Just Wondrin Says :

    Does this dentist tell his patients to swallow when the hygienist gives a fluoride treatment? Ingesting fluoride is dangerous! The stuff thrown into the water is a waste product from the fertilizer and aluminum industry and an endocrine disrupter and causes thyroid problems,cancer, kidney problems, and brown rotten-looking teeth. When the toothpaste tube plainly says if you swallow more than the recommended dose that you should go to a poison control center, why would it be suddenly OK to drink immeasurable amounts? If a doctor mass prescribed a drug he would be arrested, but you think it’s OK to just throw it in the water!
    Of course, those brown spots are just more income for the dentists. We’ve had fluoridated water for 50 years or so, but the dentists certainly aren’t seeking unemployment due to the effectiveness of fluoride, are they? Despite all the brushing and flossing, I’ve had my share of cavities, as have my children and grandchildren. Maybe it’s OK topically, but please don’t lie about how “safe” it is to drink. BTW, doctors used to bleed patients and use leeches, too.

    Feizal Sahibdeen Says :

    Did he say “flimsy Evidence ? ” Studies done by the
    University of Surrey in England has confirmed that fluoride
    forms a crust around the pineal gland in Rats. I do not
    know why they have not done it on humans but the link
    should be obvious. The amount of medical around the world
    that is against fluoride is growing. They are citing
    evidence which suggest that fluoride prevents the
    absorbation of vitamin D in the bone causing the bone to
    become brittle. Is he is saying all these medical doctors
    are wrong ? Has the ‘dental benefits’ of fluoride ever
    been proven ? If the dentist was seeing less and less
    childeran in their offices since the introduction of
    fluoride there will be no childern with dental problems.
    I am suggesting that ‘dental benefits’ are imagined, not
    real.

    On another point. I notice that the table salt is now
    fluoridated. Why the need to ingest more and more
    fluoride into our bodies ?

    Cattle herd member Says :

    How dare the people vote contrary to the opinion of authority! Don’t people know that authorities have the people’s best interests at heart!? Authorities don’t care about political power and wealth! Dentists just want your teeth to be a little more strong, people, so that you don’t have to pay them as frequently for check-ups. They don’t want your money, they want that warm fuzzy feeling that they’ve made you healthy. That warm fuzzy feeling is how they feed their families. And, if they insist that the forced ingestion of a neuro-toxic poison will give my teeth that extra smidgen of healthiness, even though that poison is adequately present in most large toothpaste brands, then I’m going to drink that tap water containing that byproduct of aluminum and/or manure processing down, which was administered to captive Jews by the Nazis to cull docility and compliance, until my health reaches 100%! OBEY. DON’T THINK FOR YOURSELVES. SUBMIT TO AUTHORITY. GO BACK TO WATCHING YOUR FLAT SCREEN TV. DON’T ASK QUESTIONS. SEEK EXTERNAL APPROVAL OF YOUR THOUGHTS. Then, and only then, will you be healthy.

    Paul McIntosh Says :

    Explain this:

    Why Does Toothpaste Carry a Warning But Fluoridated Water Does Not?

    Look at a tube of toothpaste, which clearly carries the warning: “Do not swallow,” and “in case of accidental ingestion, contact the poison control center.”

    The amount of fluoride they’re talking about is a quarter milligram of fluoride, contained in a pea size amount of toothpaste.

    But here is the kicker, This is the same amount of fluoride you find in 8 oz of water. Yet toothpaste carries a “Do not swallow” warning, whereas you’re typically told to drink eight 8oz glasses of water each day, without any concern for the amount of fluoride you will ingest.

    The American Dental Association (ADA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommend that infants NOT receive fluoridated water for drinking, nor for making their formula, as fluoridated water contains 250 times more fluoride than mother’s milk.

    Most of mainland Europe is not fluoridated, and yet, according to World Health Organization data, their teeth are just as good, if not better than Americans’.

    Yes, fluoride strengthens teeth alright…and it does retard the decaying process. However, one thing they aren’t telling you, which dentists know full well, is that in the hardening process, it also makes you teeth more BRITTLE.

    I’ve been using fluoride toothpaste all my life (I’m 50), it’s too late to change now, as almost all my teeth are chipped to some degree. I wish I had used something else.

    Thankfully, I have a well, so the government in its well meaning stupidity, can’t put fluoride, or lithium, or what ever other chemical they are trying to press on the masses these days, in MY water. It sometimes tastes of iron, but I’ll take that over chlorine.

    In order for a chemical such as Fluoride to be administered as a medicine, firstly the patient must give their permission and secondly the person administering it must be a doctor.
    Take the waterboard to court for illegallly administering medicine.
    Products produced using Fluoridated water are illegal in France for this very reason. If it really were a medicine then the dental fraternity would be trying to get the monopoly on Fluoride Tablet supply which they are not doing.
    They are using humans as industrial waste treatment plants.

    “studies conducted all over the world have consistently shown that fluoride helps to strengthen and protect the teeth, which reduces rates of decay. Fluoride also helps to cut costs for public health services as people are less likely to need dental treatment.”

    Can you site any specifics for these claims? Specifically related to drinking fluoridated water, rather than applying fluoride as a paste.

    Jim Strunk Says :

    Go to “Nofluoride.com” for good information re the reasons against fluoride in our public water systems.Europe has stopped it. Many towns in the US have stopped it. There are no scientific studies that prove the ADA arguments. The AMA has come out against fluoride. The fluoride compounds are often not pharmaceutical grade but come from a byproduct of aluminum and fertilizer processing. These products are extremely high hazard wastes, very expensive to
    dispose of other than by dilution(your water system)! Get it??

    Brian Says :

    The decision was made by the community, for their own benefit; then we hear the “expert” telling us we don’t know what we’re doing. Sodium fluoride is a known systemic toxin, which we’re supposed to take systemically for a topical effect. Yet it doesn’t even work for that, it erodes tooth enamel. I’d rather drink alcohol to clean a paper cut. The stuff comes from smokestack scrubbers and uranium ore processors, and would have to be stored at great expense as toxic waste if it were not sold to municipalities. Medical “authorities” have no real authority; their word is not gospel and they are under heavy political and financial influence. This community made the right decision. Bravo!

    bob klinck Says :

    It might be dawning on people that administering a medical substance through the water supply, which inevitably means that one resident will end up getting 10 or 20 times the dose of another with a different consumption pattern, is not very scientific, and therefore its advocacy is of questionable provenance.

    It’s an easy argument to parse for oneself.

    Go to the hardware store. Check the ingredient list for rat poison. 100% sodium fluoride.

    It is proven to pitt and stain teeth.

    It is produced as a waste product at nuclear facilities.

    Research it. I did.

    Topically fluoride will prevent tooth decay however Ingesting fluoride is hazardous to your health Dr Dipshit Hoediono.

  66. November 19th, 2010 at 08:47 PM
    Steve Michaels Says :

    Floride has already been shown, at best, to have benefit ONLY when used topically. Ingesting floride does NOTHING for teeth except making them become brittle and pocked when florosis sets in. That is, when floride poisoning occurs. When people are informed, they choose NOT to be medicated under a blanket policy. Floridation amounts to forced medication without consent. This is true even if EVERYONE bar ONE says yes to it. It is a violation of the Geneva Convention to force medicate a population. And don’t forget who pioneered water floridation… The Nazi’s used it to create lethargy and docile behavior in concentration camp inmates. They certainly weren’t trying to prevent cavities!! Look it up!

    Lawrence A. Oshanek Says :

    It is about time that the public controls what it takes into it’s body … if an individual wants to take fluoride internally, they are free to swallow a bit of their toothpaste.

    Oh, they can not do that because their tooth paste tube tells them to call poison control of they swallow very much of it.

    There are better things to be outraged about in the practice of public health and dentistry then this issue.

    Stay tuned … more on the way!

    Sodium Fluoride is a poison concocted from the detritus of the fertilizer industry .

Public health officials and dentists professing outrage at its removal is the height of absurdity .

    If the “officials” and “dentists” don’t know that fluoride is a poison, that it’s first public use was in the Nazi concentration camps, that in the states where there has been fluoridation for decades, and the teeth are still rotting, that primitive peoples who eat non-processed, raw local food have healthy teeth, than they are no longer fit to make decisions for the people.

    Retract – since when has any government been fit to make decision for the people.

    Yeah. Drinking fluoride is a brilliant idea. I want to toss one more in the mix. Let’s add suntan lotion to the water to have healthier skin and we are not going to get sun burns anymore. It may even stop skin cancer. How about we add sugar, so next time we wouldn’t need to put any in a cup of tea. What a bunch of freaking eugenicists.

    Gordon Harris Says :

    Very smart move by the citizens of Waterloo, someone in that community has done their homework and worked very hard to get the message out.
    There is ABSOLUTELY no research that proves that flouride taken intentally is beneficial to teeth, but there is a lot of research showing the potential danger of ingesting a toxic substance such as flouride so the risk reward is just not there.

    I believe there is research that proves a topical application of flouride works to protect against cavities but to make the leap that you can drink it and get the same benefit is like drinking your moisturizing cream thinking it will help your skin.
    Now we will hear all the VESTED interests spouting off like this Harry Hoediono who doesen’t believe that people are qualified to make decisions like this for themselves. I would like to hear him debate this and show us the PROOF he is taking about. That will never happen of course, dentists have been preaching this fable of flouridation for 50 years and will never admit that they are wrong (can you say lawsuit)
    People this is not new, most advanced countries discontinued this practice years ago, my congratulations to the people of Waterloo and I hope this will spread all across our country especially to Halifax where I live. I will not drink flouridated water and have not for many years as I said before the RISK/REWARD does not add up.

It is a waste product from the aluminum industrie. All so called benefits of fluoride are big lies!! The studies are made or sponsored by big pharma. And the Dentists still believe in this dogmas. It is time to chance – the people have to take back the controll for their health…..

    Hooray for some sense at last. Fluoride is one of the most poisonous substances in the world and thousands of scientific studies are available against it’s use as a MASS MEDICATION project. The way it is used through ignorance massivily exceeds the so called beneficial dose. By adding it to public water supplies you not only drink it but are exposed to additonal dosing through toothpaste and processed foods.
    My son was in charge of a water supply facility (civil engineer) considered 4 parts per million “nothing to worry about” World health organisation recommendation .167 parts per million. Does anyone ever think about the physical look
    of 4 parts per million? 4 cubic millimeters of pure fluoride
    (not it’s real name) per litre of water!
    The whole world population should wake up to the effects on populations of junk science promoted by dentists and health officials that have a vested interest.
    Why should dentists promote something that stops their income?

    I am a man with all my teeth and an age of 49, no cavities or other dental hacking. I have cared for my teeth in both environs, the fluoridated one and the none-fluoridated one.

    Hitler used fluoride to render the jews docile so that they would not realize their power in numbers and thus fight their inslavers…Fluoride is a biproduct of the chemical process of aluminum…It is a deadly waste and thus poisonous. If you injest this through water or toothpaste you are killing useful brain cells that would actually help you realize that you are being poisoned…get it.
    There is obviously an agenda at work here and the people who promote this agenda are guilty of a form of genocide. They are also either not human, or sverely retarded due to too much fluoride consumption.

    Apparently the good Dr. Harry Hoediono can’t tell the difference between stannous fluoride (in most all toothpaste and used topically to treat teeth) and the form of fluoride (industrial waste) used to “treat” water. Take a closer look at that tube of toothpaste in your washroom and you’ll notice it cautions you against swallowing any of it!
    BTW, if treating drinking water with this fluoride is such a good deal, lets also put in some arsenic. Its less poisonous, eh?

    NoFluoride Says :

    There’s a misnomer that drinking fluoride is an insurance policy for life against decay. But all it does is poison a person with adult teeth. This is because once your adult teeth are formed the internal consumption of fluoride is of no benefit. There’s only a very narrow age when fluoride (allegedly) helps strengthen teeth in formation.

    The most sensible thing to do is what they do in western Europe which is fluoridate some types of bread. That way people can choose whether or not they take this poison.

    For the dentists to hide this important fact shows disregard for our general health and medical malpractice.

    Who would you rather telling you what’s good for your body, your dentist or your doctor?

    Graeme Sutherland Says :

    It is a well known fact thet Flouride was used in the Russian Gulags and the German concentration camps to subdue prisioners make them lethargic and easy to control. The tide has turned now many tope dentists have done intensive studies/research and found it has no anti decay properties whatsoever. The other side of the coin however is that it has killed lab rats and mice often with bleeding stomach ulcers and a host of other terminal illnesses and been directly linked to a whole host of serious diseases inc cancer and brittle bone disorders ulcers. Even if it ever was any good for your teeth it could be sold as a gargle or included in toothpaste as it is, I am pro choice, power to the people! It is grossly wrong for the government to dictate what we drink in every beverage/meal we have at home, in fact it is outrageous that the powers that be are in poisioning whole nations! In conclusion Think about the African/Asian countries they seem to have healthy white teeth into their 80s!!

    There is evidence to support those who are against artificial fluoridation. Toxic studies have never been carried out prior to this scrubber waste being dumped in water supplies. There is also strong data to show fluoridated areas show no better figures than unfluoridated areas; however thyroid, respiratory illness and airborne chemical illness is shown to be widespread. Dr. Houdini needs to really research the science and use credible information. He could work alongside some of the professional experts who have come out against dumping chemicals in our precious drinking water and perhaps together be credible witness to just what is behind this push. I suffer from chemical exposure and find it hard to tolerate fluoridated water for showering, I drink bottled water; I don’t have a problem with people having the choice of fluoride tablets but to be mass medicated is a draconian step. PEOPLE SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN HEALTH. NOT DICTATED TO BY ILL INFORMED PEOPLE HELL BENT ON GETTING RID OF THE WORLD’S TOXIC WASTE PRODUCT. I LOOK AT AFRICAN COUNTRIES AND EVEN WHEN THEY ARE IN THE MIDST OF TERROR, THEY SMILE AND THEIR TEETH ARE EXCELLENT. IT IS OBVIOUS FLUORIDE IS A FURPHY. FOLLOW THE DOLLAR$

    john brouwer, alliston, ont Says :

    following is copy of my letter of reply published in local papers re- this subject: Water Fluoridation a Proven Debilitating Health Hazard
    In response to claims and quotes made in letter by Dr Lynn Tomkins, president of ODA:
    Your stated benefits of public water fluoridation are based on erroneous and very biased claims, not on science.
    Science clearly establishes that sodium fluoride is a very dangerous debilitating neurotoxin to young and old alike.
    Here are a few quotes by credible professionals and researchers: (I have many such research reports on file)
    Gerard F. Judd, Ph.D: “fluoride is a severe biological poison, to avoid fluoride is to prevent more than 114 ailments and side effects, preventing destruction of 83 essential enzymes, listed with references in a book “Good Teeth Birth to Death”.
    Dr. John Yiamouyiannis writes in “Fluoride, The Aging Factor”,”fluoride causes a premature aging process”. He notes that in areas where fluoridated water is consumed there are higher rates of bone disorders (skeletal fluorosis, osteoporosis and arthritic pain) and many people suffer from brown decaying teeth – - “fluoride is a poison!” Dr. Yiamouyiannis warns.”
    Writes German MD Dr Barbara Hendel in her book Water & Salt, the Essence of Life, “adding chlorine and fluoride to water supplies causes an unnatural frequency pattern which promotes dissonant thought patterns in the brain.”
    P & P Bragg in their book “Water, the Shocking Truth”: “fluoride is a cumulative poison, affecting genes of future generations…fluoride interferes with calcium metabolism, causing osteoporosis, hip fractures, bone cancer, diseases”
    Chlorine and fluoride combined are a dangerous carcinogenic, also responsible for dysfunctional behaviour.”
    Despite 25 years of water fluoridation, children in Bauru, Brazil, have just as many cavities as children in Jau, Brazil, where six years of fluoridation ended in 1992, according to a study presented at the March 2002 International Association for Dental Research General Session. Studies show cavity rates decline when fluoridation ends, contradicting claims made by the American Dental Association. (sure, sure, more cavities means endless very lucrative business opportunity!)
    Andreas Schuld, founder Parents of Fluoride Poisoned Children states
    “parents of autistic children report vast improvements in their child’s autism when fluoride was eliminated from the diet”
    A Google search on “deadly fluoride” will turn up thousands of references proving that fluoride is a debilitating poison.
    Dr. Tomkins, we the public are well informed on fluoride, same as we are on deadly mercury laced amalgam fillings.
    Instead of promoting rat poison in our water supply, why not focus on the Real Cause, by exposing the ‘soft’ drink industry which peddles their pathetic sugar and acid laden (pH 2.5) concoctions, which ravage the teeth of young and old alike?
    Chlorination and fluoridation of public water supplies is an antiquated orthodox approach which leaves a trail of disease and suffering, along with pollution of our lakes and rivers in which marine life can no longer survive, as is so very evident.
    Europe has proven for many years that ozonation of public water supply is the only healthy, safe, economical, truly green, non polluting alternative.

    It is because people are better informed now, thanks largely to the free speech on the internet, that we realize how toxic fluoride is. Why should we believe the “experts” when they continually lie to us? We’ve learned the hard way about the lies that mercury amalgams are safe when in the mouth but are hazardous waste anywhere else. Besides, the fluoride that was shown to reduce cavities is not the same product as the fertilizer industry by product that is added to the water supply. It is a definite toxin!

    Obviously this is an educated and aware public. To no surprise, however, the officials are reluctant to make changes that benefit the people.

    The fluoride they put in our water is Hydrofluorsilicic acid. It’s toxic waste from the fertilizer industry. Don’t try and tell me drinking it is good for your teeth and has no negative side effects.

    If you want people to have nice teeth use the money saved not buying acid and start a promotional campaign on the benefits of the topical application of fluoride. Don’t force medicate people with toxic waste.

    “numerous studies conducted all over the world have consistently shown that fluoride helps to strengthen and protect the teeth, which reduces rates of decay. Fluoride also helps to cut costs for public health services as people are less likely to need dental treatment.”

    Absolute rubbish. There is no independent study qualifying fluoride as a decay preventative or having any medical benefit for the general population. If people want fluoride treatment, so be it. But not for the whole population. Read about its origins and the reasons it was introduced. It is typical of medical/dental associations to “follow” what the industry says.

Congratulations to the intelligent people of Waterloo who just will not be bullied by the “experts” and have voted for common sense and freedom of choice. Want fluoride? Buy toothpaste! It’s far more effective, anyway, and doesn’t affect anything but teeth if you’re careful to spit it out. PS: Waterloo residents voted to protect their children as even the American Dental Association and the US CDC recommend no fluoridated water to prepare infant formula so as to prevent the epidemic of dental fluorosis that plagues all fluoridated areas. Good decision, folks!

  108. November 20th, 2010 at 08:47 PM
    Craig Says :

    The majority of fluoride in water is ingested rather than interacting with the surface of teeth in the mouth. Fluoride used in the majority of American water supply is a poisonous industrial byproduct. Fluoride kill sall type of bacteria in your body and not just the bacteria that cause tooth decay. Sugary and sticky foods and candy and drinks like soda metabolize into acids which cause decay on your tooth surface so improvements in diet are a more practical and healthful way of reducing decay as has already been found in European Union where fluoride is recognized as a poison.

    Oh yeah,right! The Ontario Dental Association is troubled that water supplies will no longer be fluoridated! One would think that dentists would welcome the opportunity to treat more patients. Why would they possibly want less traffic through their offices? Flouridated water is used to sedate the populace. Soon, Lithium may replace Flouride. We must protest that also.

    Ken Pitt Says :

    It is none of Harry Hoediono’s business what the citizens of Waterloo do.
    I don’t tell him or his family what to drink and I ask that he extend to me the same respect.
    If he really wants to help the people of Waterloo as he claims, then he can open his office to under privileged family’s for check ups and lobby Revenue Canada for a tax deduction for providing this essential service to the community.
    The citizens of Waterloo are not against dental health they are against adding a product into the water that violates their constitutional right to consent. Fluoride is not an essential nutrient nor is it a mineral. It is a drug has been proven to have detrimental health effects on certain members of society. I strongly encourage families that want fluoridated water to request that a doctor prescribe it to them in a pill form and they can add it to their water in a glass. Or for that matter they can swallow a little tooth paste if they want, Fluoride is fluoride,right? That is what was said at the information meeting at Rim Park. All fluoride “Hydrolyzes” once introduced to water.
    Mr Harry Hoediono I would ask that you continue to do what you were trained to do and that is practice dentistry, if you want to practice medicine then you should have gone to medical school.

    Respectfully yours

    Good ridance. Fluoride is a poison. It´s bad enough we have it in our toothpaste. But to drink it is absolutely madness. Fluoride is a waste-product from aluminium production, it was put in your water for the industry to cut expenses basicly(before they just let it out in the air but people and enviroment got sick so they had to cristalize it by adding water). If you go deep into the subject you will find out that the Nazis fluoridated their water on the camps to make prisoners more docile and managable. In most Europe countries we don´t fluoridate our water but our teeths are just as good as in USA for example. So stop the madness!

    Since when did a DENTIST become an authority on all of the body’s soft tissues??

    And, why, oh why, do these fools at the helm of fluoridation policies, still PARROT ‘safe and effective’, against the overwhelming 2010 SCIENCE (that’s been around since the 1950′s in many cases, but ignored) that PROVES their theories WRONG?

    Wakey, wakey. Time to STOP FLUORIDATION WORLDWIDE.

    A POISON IS A POISON IS A POISON.

    ie. Since when did a heavy-metal contaminated alumininium industry scrubber waste, stop ACCUMULATING in the bones and soft tissues, particularly, the thyroid and kidneys??

    Show us all your evidence, of safety? There is NONE! As the tests have NEVER BEEN DONE!

    The fluoridationists are no more than unscientific, cold, calculating criminals, fools and sycophants who line their pockets from the suffering of the many.

    Off with their arrogant heads.

    Bullshit! Flouride going in your stomach doesn’t do anything for your teeth, but a lot of harm to your innards.

    Why aren’t you posting any comments? I know of several folks who have left comments, myself included, but there are none showing. Are you afraid to show how many oppose these lies you are spewing?

    You make the claim the water fluoridation is good for our teeth. Provide your references for that claim. The scientific studies linking water fluoridation to bone cancer are readily available for anyone that takes the time to look.

    The time of blind obedience to white lab coats has ended. You want us to believe you, show us the proof.

    Thanks for the great editorial! Now, when may we expect to see the reporting???

    Finally, a victory for the people that actually drink the poison. Is it any wonder why that Hitler used fluoride in the death camps to make his prisoners more complacent? Look it up.

    Also, Canadians are notoriously accepting. Accepting of “authorities” in your lives, dictators in office, and whatever comes down the line. Finally they stand up for something truly worth standing up for! Congratulations, Waterloo!

    We must never forget that 666 million of the chosen ones were gassed to death in the shoa;by the goyim cattle…
    So,not taking the sodium fluoride is a latent form of anti-Semitism; as it is very beneficial not only for the teeth but for the DEMONcratic way of thinking as well…

    The board of the Santa Clara Valley Water District (in California) held a meeting last Tuesday on water fluoridation. This summer they are scheduled to vote on whether or not to fluoridate the water supply. The board and their staff were given 20 copies of a 70 minute cd of doctors explaining the history, origin, and health hazards of this toxic waste. Doctors included John Lee, John Yiamouyannis, and Phyllis Mullenix. The audio is posted at the website http://www.MaeBrussell.com. Just go to the bottom of the homepage.
